S2, 23 Jul 2011Update Ginger 2.3.4 . . .You will get more batary . .Surely a day wil pass. . I get almost 36... moreThanks will look into 2.3.4 as a priority. ,,since last post decided to hammer it playing vga videos 30fps off nokia n95 music thru speaker 100% and got 1hr 5mins and a chess game and its about to go now 8.55pm..Thats not bad going but will try 2.3.4 and knock screen down to 60% and see how big the benefit is..Lots more testing to come..
This superfone is so good it just keeps up full 30fps at 1080p its flawless and really suprised at fotos i took..I keep stroking the back its relaxing the grainy texture effect and even tho i have umpteen covers/cases its so nice just on its own naked and ultra slim..Its amazing how quickly you get used to 4.3inch screen and its not as big as when i first saw it.
My dad just got this phone 2 days ago but I have been exploring it more and I will have to admit, it is just Brilliant! The screen is out of this world! Still I have not used an HTC Sensation yet but I am quite sure it is just as good. In my opinion and on behalf of many others, Android rules!
Here is my hands-on experience on this phone

Doing seperate posts due to long posts are boring..
I have Settings>>>> Display>>>> Scroll down to adjust screen power>>>> Tick box..
Also Settings >>>> Power save mode >>> select power save mode >>> select use power save mode set mine at 10%>>> tick all boxes>>>Screen time out 15 seconds.
Been out since this morning took it off charge 7.30pm,20 texts sent recieved 2x 2minute fone calls,3hrs music,twitter every 30 minutes,1 manual email update 4x8MP fotos and 3 mins video recording @1080p,screen about 70%, 2g mode and at 45% battery left after 10 hrs use now 5.30pm..So if i was more heavy i reckon battery lasts about 12-16hrs.
Wings of oblivious, 23 Jul 2011Are these mugen batteries so good?i have had 3 of them,,they are of high quality..THey do come direct from Hong Kong with their stamps on..They are expensive but they only ones i would buy and trust...That does not mean to say that there are other good quality batterys also,, its just all the ones i have bought have been worse than original battery.
For some reason tho the extended version for sgs2 is NOT lithium polymer ...Mugen have good facebbok following but i know your taking my word for it and thats not exactly gospel..
this is my first android phone and this beast is super fast! you won't regret buying it!
Just bought it today at 2pm, after 1nite queu at 8pm last nite with other 1200 persons since last night. It is awesome phone, super smartphone. Just test it few hours and now i'm charging the battery for 7hours for first time charge. I'll tell my further opinion about this phone after it turn on.
Got s2 for over a month, greatest phone of all time!
To save battery root your phone and underclock the processor to 500mhz when there screen goes off. I'm a heavy user and will always get more than life out of it...Blazing internet speed thru Rogers network here in Canada
