Love this phone since last week. The camera (both photo n video), the weight, the customizeable home screen (inc. the themes from market), the CPU, and ofcourse the OS Gingerbread. So worth waiting for 4 months. Now i take a good care of it by using it with screen protector and a phone body protector.
But i found it's a little bit lagging, when i use the original homescreen, to move from page to page. Then i download GO Launcher EX, problem solved. Or anyone can suggest the same problem? Also the services always run on background, which consume batt easily. I don't use the so called, task killer, because i don't want to ruin the OS (or maybe i don't really understand how to use it..). Anyway, i enjoy it all the time.

You can update right now through ODIN, The firmware is available on samfirmware.com.
Choose open Europe firmware and you're ready to go.
1-Put your phone in download mode
2-Open odin and click PDA, then choose the .tar file that you've already downloaded from samfirmware
3-Ckeck Auto Reboot and F.Reset Time (nothing else)
5-Wait until ODIN finishes, you will get "PASS"
in 3-4 minutes you're with the latest unbranded firmware.
Does anybody know when is the KE7 upadate available in the European region (in Estonia specifically)? Does anybody have any idea about the update roll-out timetable? Thanks in advance

Regretfully, its not the only problem; I doscovere... moreI don't have the other problems you mentioned having in your Galaxy and it seems that you have a defective model. In my opinion you should demand a replacement. I use my cell phone as a point-and-shoot replacement as well and right now my SGSII just fails to deliver its advertised camera specs. By the way I live in Greece but bought my handset from UK.
bhomz, 28 May 2011u shud get the KE7 upgrade and everything will be fine I updated to KE7 but that didn't solve the problem.
when will this beast be available in south africa thanks in advanced.
I am a happy owner of this device and it's absolutely fantastic.
Updated it as soon as taken out of the box to the latest generic software KE7 and rooted it.
I had an LG optimus 2X and this one is a lot better, especially the screen.
For those whom can afford it, don't hesitate at all, this is THE smartphone of the year.
The 4400, 28 May 2011I have read eye exam charts that have made more sense than anything ronald has 2 say...."... moreIn the pursuit 2 show an iota of intellectual superiority, he has taken a perfectly good ORIGINAL comment and made it nonsensical. I wouldn't even dignify it with the label of tautology but attempted mimicry! So either the SGSII is not a spectacular device, or... Evolution, living things, technology needs humans, theorising, researching, adapting inventing. Having seen your efforts at originality I can see why would 'piggy back' on anothers comments BUT U FAILED, as U have 2 link these points in your owm words. ANYWAY, not 'enyway' U R in no position 2 lecture ANYbody on what phone is suitable as sooner or later the vast majority R determined 2 own this phone. What may puzzle some is the contradiction, rhetoric. Demand respect, intelligence, LATIN? When U clearly have not managed the basics. Spelling poor! as phonetics or would that be fonetics 4 U? OBSOLETE not obselete and all the other howlers from earlier submissions. I guess why my/our post stays is I/we go 2 the message and not the MESSENGER. For all the skills U profess 2 have none have come 2 the surface. Take a comment and improve it, add 2 it, disagree with it and state the reasons. But like the SGSII, that comment did NOT need touching!

Regretfully, its not the only problem; I doscovered that the LED flash does not work properly at all. Instead of lightening up the pictures, it makes them 99% black. P.S. I am form the Netherlands, where did you buy yours from?
