if your I9100G hang or malfunction, try restart the phone by pressing the power key for 8 seconds, so you don't have to remove the battery

sssss, 28 Jan 2012using this phone for a month already. my first android phone.really like the fast processing s... moreThe Galaxy S2 as well as all other android phone are for those who like to play around with their devices and get the most out of it. In other words, android is the OS for the more tech savvy, professionals, and tech nerds. If android is really that difficult for you, then you should join the children and slow people in the ios crowd. Perhaps you'll feel more at home then. ^_^
samsung have fooled many customers by selling this device I9100G under the name of the original device I9100 only(Galaxy SII), in other words ibuyed the fake one since 3 weeks and the device stooked with me like 5 to 7 times this because the cpu and the gpu are compatiple which other as in the original device

Anonymous, 28 Jan 2012So how? Without the G is the best?the first s2 to come out is model i9100 galaxy s2, this i9100G is one of the variants. the difference is less powerful cpu and gpu compared to the original. it's still clocked at 1.2 mhz, but people says it is less powerful.maybe in terms of benchmark. same goes for the gpu.
i dont know the actual difference, because i only own the G variant.but in some forum they say not much difference in term of usage. maybe in the most graphic heavy game can find the difference.
however it is proven that G version had longer battery and less heating compared to original, due to less powerful cpu.
anyway, many people own the original i9100, so modifications, custom firmwares were made for i9100. stuff made for i9100 is mostly not compatible with i9100G.
that is why many people feels cheated when buying I9100G, its almost same as buying another model such galaxy Y or galaxy R.
