The only way for a phone to heat up is long duration multitasking, web browsing, and hardcore gaming. Yellow tint is just an exaggeration. To most people, you can hardly tell, but to a few people, you can see the yellow tint. Though the plastic on the phone feels really cheap. Overall, it's a really fast phone with almost zero lag.

But if you want to compare this phone to other Android phones, this phone is a bit better due to AMOLED tech display. Other than that, battery life isn't that great. I wish they use better quality materials for this phone. Everytime I hold the phone, I feel like I can crush it.
It sucks that Telstra customers in Australia have to wait till mid-to-late July for it to be released. I refuse to go on Optus but seriously, everyone has been waiting for so long and it really bugs me that they don't do anything about the late release dates (on every phone).
I swear, the contracts better be good reasonable prices or I'll spew. I've been looking for the right smartphone for a while to be released on Telstra and the Samgsung Galaxy S II is probably the only one that I've really been excited about but by the time Telstra releases it and I see the prices, there has already been a new phone with better specifications that's been announced. I know that will always happen but if it came out on Telstra in even early June I wouldn't be as annoyed.
Stuck with the same phone (Motorola V3... Yeah I know...) since 2005 and even though it hasn't died yet, I would like to be able to use the internet, Facebook, check my emails and listen to music on-the-go with just one device. I just hope that Samsung doesn't announce a new phone any time soon because I'm into the slim factor and large screens the other brands haven't seem to have topped yet.
Release it already!!
Plz can someone tell me how is the battery life on this phone...will be buying one soon so need to know ur experience about the battery life..
battery only 12 hours average usage..overheat after 1 hour..other than that all superb..really miss nokia user friendly setting still the best
Can any one help me in rearranging the app icons on the menu screens ??, as the apps are not in the alphabetical order and makes it very difficult to search an app.
Thanks in advance

I m using it for the past two weeks, the phone does get heated up sometimes but thts ok as it happens to any device with no dedicated fan
The best way is to close some unwanted apps (as that is the prime reason for the phone to be heated)
also I find no problem of the yellow spot
[deleted post]ROI LOSH
battery life with 45min of talktime, 20-30min of maps and videos and remaining as standby - is 24hours
no yellow tint. i've seen the screen in pure white on a pic taken of a white sheet.
smooth screen transitions.
not such a great loudspeaker.
problem to connect on internet thru 3g (see my post below). but that is more of a settings issue since it works beautifully on wifi and also on 3g (barring those two functions).
customizable to the bone!
heating yes - but thats the case with so many other such phones.
i use it in India. gps gets signals from satellites even without data network or wifi on.
ev.one speaks about the flimsy battery cover, but really what use do u want to put the cover to once it is shut!?? just to cover the battery right....it is flexible so no worries for breakage either. and it keeps the phone light.
irritating screen time out - it times out and also gets locked....
android apps - typical of ad supported apps - keep getting sponsored links - but that again is upto u to avoid by choosing where to download apps from
Haha I was there in Malaysia week a go and every one said it s not released yet maybe next week :(
.. and when i came back to my country (Oman) it was there and i bought it a gift to my wife
Mfk, 20 Jun 2011well what i have read about Mali 400 .. its more power full then Nvidia ... about games man.. ... moreThe problem is that even though S2 say it focus, get green indicator, at 12 cm it actually does not really focus and small text is unreadable, out of focus.

Using this phone since a week now and I really feel happy on my decision of getting S2 instead of iphone4. Now I m looking for MHL Adapter, can anyone tell me where is it available online in India, so I can order it. AllShare feature on Samsung LCD works like charm..!
MHL Adpater (USB to HD Cable)...???????
To those who have the phone, I heard there are a couple of problems with it and I was wondering if they were serious.
First off there is the overheating problem with the screen and the battery cover when charging the phone or playing games with it. Does it get really hot, that you cant touch it?
Second there is the yellow screen, is that really noticable?
TC, 20 Jun 2011Have you tried taking a picture of small text in a dokument holding S2 closer than 10 cm?well what i have read about Mali 400 .. its more power full then Nvidia ... about games man.. they will have to re write. i cant xplain the technicalities but its better u google ur self u will see alot of articles with the same complaints that games are crashing. and u will be surprised to know that its the programmers mistake not the Mali 400 .. so better u Google this issue.. about pic.. well closest it gets is 12 cm.. i tested by my self..... its the begining of a new era DUAL CORE era.. it will take time to over come the Single core but it will HAPPEN for sure...
To those who have the phone, i heard there were overheating problems when charging or playing games... is it really that serious? cause im planning to buy the phone soon, and was wondering about this problem.
Another problem I've seen in reviews is the yellow screen... also the same question is it serious or not that noticable?
