just got my gs2 and played it for about 4hrs non stop, it didnt get heat up, a little warm but never heated up, and no yellow tint nor pink spot on the camera, im so glad it didnt had any defects at all wew.
Raul Pockdler, 21 Dec 2011No issues with that buddy.. It's got one hell of a CPU & unlike PC's & Laptops it does... moreThanks a lot mate! Whew! I saw a reply for someone that I have to replace my phone due to being a defect unit but it seems that I rather believe on what you say rather than his comment. It heats up a little bit but this is just my 2nd android phone (my 1st was a sony xperia x10 mini pro just so you know) and my 1st one doesn't heat up even a little bit (well sometimes). Probably its because I ain't using it a lot especially for playing android games or any apps (because I didn't had any intalled on my x10 mini pro)
Moving forward, I got really worried. I'm quite a paranoid when it comes to phones. I'm a certified OC (obsessive compulsive) which means I really ain't feeling comfortable when something's new to me (the feeling of my sgs2 getting a little bit of warm due to some changes in my settings)
Sorry for being so talkative, just so you know it heats up a little bit near the camera area on the back. Is it due to the high speed processing of the phone and since it doesn't have a cooling fan like a pc it heats up? Cheers cheers!
Raul Pockdler, 21 Dec 2011I don't understand why you people are still stuck on 2.3.3!!
I'm on 2.3.7, and like you guys ... moreFyi, there is NO 2.3.7 officially released by Google. You are using Cyanogen Mod 7.1, which is said to have 2.3.7.
It's an ASOP based ROM, many people won't like it, including me.

All you need to do is . Switch off the background data in Accounts and sync settings. This will make you phone not to communicate with google apps. remember you can't use gmail app, Yahoo messenger, Market after you disable the background , But i still use the alternatives for IM i use ebuddy, gmail ..not a worry configure with email application (this works without background data) also saves you lot of battery.
Dorian, 21 Dec 2011But, not better VIDEO camera...Yeah.. You got that right man.
But what I was saying is that camera is the only department where N8 can be ahead.
Galaxy SII is just beyond compare in terms of OS, GUI & Usability.
In short, Galaxy SII is the best handset on offer in the market today!
Raul Pockdler, 21 Dec 2011N8 just got a better camera.. For everything else, the Galaxy SII is beyond compare!But, not better VIDEO camera...
It is best of best i ever seen in mobile.... the performance is really outstanding.... video streaming are all really great....
anyone else have a problem where they can't get the contacts screen to go, this happens to me all the time and the only way round it is turning the phone on and off! really annoying!!!
Galaxy S2 or Xperia Arc?
Design and User Interface wise. I don't mind about processor, camera etc.
Thanks in advance.
vp200345, 21 Dec 2011seriously speaking, it depends on your requirements!!!
Even I was using a sony-ericsson K81... moreN8 just got a better camera..
For everything else, the Galaxy SII is beyond compare!
knightmk, 21 Dec 2011lol this phone is so big that in the way u will never think this phone is phone, how can u put... moreYou must be kidding, right?
4.3" is not too large! It fits just fine in your pocket.
It takes a bit getting used to which isn't much of a problem. I used to own an HTC DesireHD before this which is wider than this one. I feel SII is quite compact considering its screen size. Stop criticizing this SuperPhone just because you've got tiny hands!
kevintomz, 21 Dec 2011it's not available in india....I don't understand why you people are still stuck on 2.3.3!!
I'm on 2.3.7, and like you guys I'm from India.
Just install an official firmware from XDA-Developers website or hust google/youtube it. It's a simple, 3mins process and 100% safe. Grow up guys.. You just spent around Rs28000 on this phone. Don't miss out on the fun just because Samsung doesn't update you in time!! :/
Love this more than My Girlfriend... Its not just a phone its my Love & life...
Maxwell Lord, 20 Dec 2011I've got quick question for long time owners of this phone.
I got mine today, a white one.
... moreNo issues with that buddy.. It's got one hell of a CPU & unlike PC's & Laptops it doesn't have a cooling fan.
Get Android Assisstant app from market. It shows the battery temperature in it along with a lot of other features. Anything below 54°C should be okay, considering you must still be on 2.3.3 official firmware.
I'd advise you to update to 2.3.6, which is the latest official firmware from Samsung. Just goto XDA website and you should find how to do it under Galaxy S II (I9100) Original Android Development forum. It's the official firmware so you shouldn't worry about it. Updating should improve your phone's performance, keep it cooler as well as fast.
Cheers mate!! :)
lol this phone is so big that in the way u will never think this phone is phone, how can u put something so big in your pocket or hold in hand, u need phone not lap top to hold in hand...wake up go for nokia n9 and feel the power !!!
