AnonD-8676, 01 Nov 2011Hey! My phone screen dosen't turn on when i press the on button. It happened 2 times already. ... moreYou have to open the battery and put it back..Then press the power button to switch on..Its happen to my phone..!! =,=
My Galaxy SL heats up when used for half an hour for Internet Browsing or Games.(Battery Indicator shows Temperature around 50 - 52 deg C. sometimes)
Is there any problem with my phone?
My Xperia Mini also had this temp thing.
Other than this Galaxy SL is a very good phone in every aspect.
tahir, 01 Nov 2011short press the power key to lock the screen instantlyThat works too to turn off the screen. Whichever method you prefer. I just prefer to use the screen instead of pressing the button on the side of the phone.
karthivinay, 01 Nov 2011i bought this mobile week before..internet ,camera, application ...process speed really nice..... moreHi,
I had this phone since April and here's some tips to conserve on battery usage that I think may benefit all Galaxy phone users:
1)Turn off the Auto-Sync function by going into --> Settings --> Accounts and sync --> uncheck Auto-sync (this would still allow you to get emails and other notifications from Facebook for example but won't sync everything; thus use less battery.
2) Tune your display brightness to a lower but comfortable level and adjust Screen timeout to shorter time (I use 1 minute). Install App like: Lock Screen Widget from the Market to easily turn off your screen instead of waiting for itself to screen timeout.
3) Adjust your Animation level to lower instead of All animations. Use a darker color wallpaper would certainly help too.
4) Turn on Power saving mode by checking it within Settings
5) Vibration, go into Settings --> Sound --> Vibrate --> select Only in silent mode, then adjust the Haptic feedback by checking it and then click into Vibration intensity to adjust the vibration level; then uncheck Haptic feeback. Your phone will still vibrate when in silent mode but will not have the haptic feedback. Of course, turning vibration off entirely will further conserve battery.
6) Turn off functions that you are not using like bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS. Only switch on when needs it. I even switch off the 3G when really don't need it. Install App like: 2G-3G OnOff from the Market to easily switch on and off the 3G function by creating shortcut to your screens.
7) Lastly, install the Mobo Task Killer App to regulate and auto kill apps throughout the day to further save battery juice.
8) Buy an extra battery and bring it with you. The original OEM batteries are affordable and you can always have an extra fully charged handy to swap out. Something an iPhone cannot do.
Hope these helps. Feel free to do any combinations of the listed above steps to suit your usage habit.

My phone start switch off itself..When i wake up in the morning its already switch off even the battery is full...I don't know why this is happen..!!
Two very significant problems in Samsung Galaxy SL...could be my phone only...
1. If using the internet calling, the phone heats up very fast and battery drains very quickly if the phone is idle with net connection..(Android phone, wt's the point if internet is connected full time)..even if u play games battery drains fast.
2.Red horizontal lines come across in close range pictures(Especially if u r taking pictures indoors)
