And one same original battery that came with mobile. So I have two extra batteries at the same time fully charged. If we are using smartphone then it is joke that we keep data off, no live wall paper, low screen mode etc.........
Hope you understand. You can take only one 2000 mA samsung extra battery that will be enough. Please enjoy this phone.
bob, 24 Apr 2012If someone knows when the ICS wil come in macedoniago to official SAMSUNG service(VIDEODATA for Macedonia),they will install ICS(v 4.0.3)pozdrav
to increase battery backup u should turn off data packet when not in use. you can turn off it by long pressing power button and in menu "data deactivate"
I don't know why samsung isn't releasing ics for middle east (XSG) . . . It taking too long . . . I m starting to hate samsung . . .
Battery life is the biggest problem for Samsung S2. I need to have battery charger ready in car, office and home. Otherwise, your life will be miserable. Other than that, I have no complain.
Hani, 24 Apr 2012I still do not understand why Samsung did not release the Android OS 4 yet for the Middle East... moresame thing here in Australia we're on a 2.3.5 version still but a lot of countries already benefited with ICS 4.0.3 version. Yes i called it DISCRIMINATION from Samsung we felt abandoned, remember we are also your customer who is willing to pay but give us as well your benefits to us as you did to other countries and dont spare us.
if you are not a heavy browser, there is no point to have your 3G activated all the times!
and when you want you can do it manually in 2 seconds,
this simple solution made my GS2 go for 2 days on light use, and 24 hour, on medium to heavy use.
try it and tell me what you think!
I want loads of response to these two magical solution,
you don't believe me, try it!
people talk about battery issue, which to some extend is correct, but you can easy get 12 hours on medium to heavey use.
NOW I have a solution for you, which doesn't need downloading apps,
Ok, TWO simple steps.
1. activate galaxy default power save mode
2. deactivate (unclick) the "use packet data" which is under mobile network in setting
you will at least double your power this way, 24hr easy.
if packet data deactivated you can still , receieve call, send text etc, you can't browse internet or use 3G, that is what is killing your battery, so activate it when you want to use internet, takes 2 seconds.
specially if you are not a heavy user and simply use your phones for internal SD apps, and calls, then you will benefit from these simple soloution ,
please come back and report your experience after doing this,
I would like to ask when is the update of S2 in the Philippines in ICS ICE CREAM SANDWICH?
Kindly answer me please...
I still do not understand why Samsung did not release the Android OS 4 yet for the Middle East users. Those who imported their SII from UK managed to upgrade their phones. I can not think of any reason for this discrimination..Same policy was there when they started selling the SI when they included a very limited version of Market for this region. Very disappointed..
The Battery life is the worst...Even the phone can not handle 2g 50 calls per day..i have sent the handset to the service center twice but the problem is still not solved...So guys do not purchase it..its just waste of money..
Anyone knows what type of custom user agent string to use so that when you share in fb or tweet in twitter it would display as 'via Samsung Galaxy S2'??
