My experience with Samsung was very impressive, until 2009 where most of their models are made in China.
Before any model you get was very durable.
Like what I have until today the P310.
How most model today are easily spoiled.
My P310 is still good with it's battery performance.
This Galaxy SII I heard is also made in China.
for everyone's knowledge here... do not compare iphone 4 with samsung galaxy s ii.. because iphone 4 rivals the first galaxy s.. wait for the iphone 4gs/iphone 5 that will compete with this phone.. so stupid!
iphone 4 is 2010 model... sgs ii was released months ago... are you even thinking? knowing that apple release one phone a year and samsung bombarded the market with many copycat smartphones... why the well?
it also a joke samsung galaxy s ii has a variation with just different screen... for what to boost the sales? can't they even make one model then let it be... like the iphone 4, no variation...but look at the sales...
Josie , 03 Jul 2011How can I stop continous Internet charging on this handset.my weather application and some oth... moreSame used to happen to me.
Just go to:
"Setting" > "Account and Sync" then uncheck "Background data".
"Setting" > "Wireless and network" > "Mobile networks" then uncheck "Use packet data".
This should guarantee no more high bills :)
One side comment, while on WiFi, you can re-enable the "Background data" options for updates and other social applications/notifications.
Have fun and enjoy you Galaxy S II i9100 :)

badrah, 03 Jul 2011Hello everyone, Wanted to share my battery experience with my 9 days old SGSII. Now (aft... morehey same experrience and i also did all the things same as what u did, disabled packet data, auto mode for brightness, no 3g, wlan connected but usage very low, gps disabled, advance task killer installed, yed i dont know what is juice u mentioned. in iphone i know for extra battery a hardware called juice pack is available in market. so is that for s2 also. if yes then i wanna buy 1.
Wanted to share my battery experience with my 9 days old SGSII.
Now (after the 4th full charge), It's showing 48% with 1 day and 9 hours! This along with my usual daily usage. The same usage that lasted only 20 hours of juice at the beginning.
What did I do?
1. Disabled "Use packet Data" from Mobile network settings.
2. Disabled 3G and working only on EDGE (may not be suitable for everyone, by the 3G coverage and speed are is not a lot better than EDGE in my area).
3. Having WiFi always on .. Being actually connected ~10 hours a day. Keep in mind, I'm saying "connected" not "using" .. Usage is just for couple of hours.
4. Disabled GPS .. Enable it only when needed (just few minutes every now and then).
5. Installed Juice Defender and Advanced Task Killer.
6. Screen Brightness set to "Auto".
I know that some of you will say that I might not be making full use of the phone this way .. I thought so myself at the beginning and was just doing so for an experiment.. But then I discovered that I really enjoy every bit of it while having a full two days on a single recharge.
I only enable a service whenever I need it .. It may sound like a tedious thing to do, but for the extra juice, I guess it's reasonable.
Have fun all SGSII fellows.
Hey fellow Muslims .. Any recommendations for a good "Prayer Times" app with a good Qibla direction that uses the phone built-in compass rather than the location services?
I always need it when I have now GPS lock nor a data connection.
Thanking you in advance!
A neat trick by sammy...holding n sliding ur finger across the notification bar results in increment/decrement of brightness...all together ths fone is loaded with amazing bunch of features...and its awesomeness simply cant b compared...an excellent package...amazing fone wid exceptional user experience...
the new firmware KF3..updated today.. have removed message skins...the only change i hve found till now..
Excellent phone, a major difference between the Galaxy S I (IS9000)vs this phone, extremely fast.

Until Galaxy 2 was released I Phone 4 was the leader. As of date, Galaxy 2 beats I Phone 4 hands down in all areas. May be, Iphone 4 S or IPhone 5, however they elect to name it, would give Galaxy a run for it's money.
Please compare Galaxy 2 against HTC Sensation before you take the leap. Personally, I prefer Galaxy. Having said that, I should admit I Phone 4 is a beauty.
its 100percent better than iphone 4.display is gorgeous and it run android which is best on mobile phones now...powerful phone from samsung
