Those who mentioned GS2 plays mkv files or 1080p files, well, you aren't wrong, but just to clarify more specifically... GS2 generally plays every common formats of various files like mpg mp4 mkv avi wmv and even rmvb(not alot of player plays rmvb), uncommon format like m4v isn't playable. Ok I say 'generally' because sometimes the codec use to encode the files caused it to be unplayable in GS2(there's a vid on youtube showing quite a number of common formats unplayable. personally I encounter some times too). So, to be specific, yes it plays mkv or 1080p files, but definitely not every single one of them, recent new version of mkv that uses a 10-bit CCCP codec for instant, can't be played on GS2. Just saying. Peace.

My celphone battery last only 8-10hrs of heavy using am not prblem with that coz im using it if u dont want to drain ur battery faster then stop using eat and can last a week or more.
As I had encountered problem when I used Samsung Kies so when i knew that there was a new version (Version 188.8.131.5295...released Novmeber 2011) I downloaded and installed its. However the new Samsung Kies cannot be used as well - it stopped working always.
Samsung, please do not treat your customers this way resulting in substantial wastage of time and expenese (we pay for download time) !

I wish they launch "extra battery pack", kinda like Sony PSP's , with heavy use it barely last 8 hours (gaming & online)
Also the mobile get really hot when running 3D / CPU intensive game (eg. Tower Defence).
The batery life is not like im expected.. Need charge 2 times per day even with minimal usage of basic application
ive been using e7 for 1 month thinking that it would beat samsung galaxy s2. E7 failed me and it sucks.. Dont buy nokia e7..
itumi, 13 Nov 2011Check it with your network provider. Thank you Itumi. That specific sim was faulty.

Shadowgun and Galaxy on fire 2 and Riptide GP and Samurai 2 all play perfectly on my S2!
And Need for speed Shift and Fifa 10 can also be played if they are bought from www.eamobile.com!
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2011Great phone, battery doesn't last close to what they said and I have a 6.11W/h battery....The phone is great feature wise..but battery life is very poor. Hardly gives me 6hrs of working ability. Inspite of all the battery saving measures, SII never seems to cross 7hrs mark. It behaves like a glorified land phone.
I am greatly disappointed about the battery life, so much so that I suggest people to refrain from buying this otherwise superb gadget unless Samsung addresses the battery issue, since unless there is no power all the juices are sucked up.
