They not ready to provide a new handset. As issue was noticed after 4 days of purchase and their stupid policies states within 4 days only replacement possible. More than 4 days are eligible for repair.
So after much argument, screen was replaced completely but problem still persists. And more annoying is they say motherboard would be changes, connector would be changed and even OS would be upgraded... But new replacement handset not possible...silly... its not my handset its their experiment device i feel...

gs2 fan, 30 Oct 2011hi, hope you are well. thanks for all your inputs. so is there a app in the market to improve ... moreto improve your phone battery life, here's are some of my tips
1. adjust the screen brightness to a 30% which gives you enough brightness you need.
2. go to setting ACCOUNT AND SYNC and untick BACKROUND DATA ( tick again when you need it like when you open up your adroid market or checking your email account from yahoo )
3. install JUICE DEFENDER or ADVANCED TASK KILLER and 2X battery.
4.go to display setting and set the BACKGROUND EFFECT to MOVIE mode.
Hope these will help you. Goodluck.
i meant 30 min of call only, i am moderate user and still getting about 10 hour. the only good thing is you get plenty of warnning before it shut down.

[deleted post]Read threads in XDA related to battery drain. Keep in mind you should be checking the Display On time to compare your battery with others, not Standby time. As long as you are getting 5+ hours of Screen On time you are good to go.
Battery life of this phone "sucks" to say the least,so much that it gives an overall "dumb" image to samsung in making a phone with amazing specs but without a battery to support it.To those who have said battery life of s2 fares better than laptops,please understand that a "phone" is not brought to be used like a laptop & vice versa.Those who said they get 2 days of battery life from s2 are probably lying,since i am yet to see a galaxy s2 user that gets 18 hours of normal use after a full charging.To samsung, please make sure you do the "abc" correctly before executing xyz.
gs2 fan, 30 Oct 2011i also want to say that i don't believe for a second of those people claiming they get one and... moreI get 2 days of "normal" use out of my S2. How many hours of websurfing do you get out of any laptop-computer, more than a very few hours?
3G-connection is perfect on S2, but if you have a bad network-provider then not even S2 can give you high speed or reliable connection!
Dr. Mawla, 30 Oct 2011i've inserted an 8GB micro SD card into my Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II phone but the handset is ... moreYour 8GB micro SD card is corrupted.
Same thing happen to my new 16GB SD card when I inserted it in this phone. I don't know why...
Tried it in my desk top and it says something like your card is corrupted.
Solution is to buy new.
I bought new and it is working good now.
i also want to say that i don't believe for a second of those people claiming they get one and half day out of their gs2 one Heavey use!!!!!!!!. that is impossible. even a moderate use doesn't give you that!!!!!!!!!!.
the rest of this phone is just amaizing. 3G is slow i have load of problem streaming stuff via 3G, surely you don't have internet access everywhere.
gs2 fan, 30 Oct 2011hi, hope you are well. thanks for all your inputs. so is there a app in the market to improve ... moreI don't know any apps to improve the battery life.
My SGS2 battery charge last only 12 hours or less I think.
But no problem for me because when I go to sleep I plug it in a wall charger while the radio streaming plays. And when I reach my office in the morning I plug it via USB charger to my desk top while playing my favorite playlist of music streaming.
My 3G connection is enough to download the video and music streaming during network packet data connection while on the go, i.e. no buffering whatsoever.
