Right when playing back video on bbc i-player with twitter feeds (4 of them)email updates txt messages coming in the sgs does get warm.That said so do many other fones ive had.My tele gets hot so does my dvd player and my laptop and sandisk v-mate video recorder and my adapter for this and that its normal.
I have the power of my laptop in 2009 in a 8.5mm chassis with no heatsink attached to a fan ,of course its gonna get hot.Samsung will have run tests and its passed through the fCC for crying out loud,,its natural to get hot.
To persons on here saying about fruit fone,,please go buy that fone ..do not come on here discussing it please it is not a smarfone.I do however not mind s/e arc or lg optimus comments or any other fone because we are here to discuss smartfones.I do go to arc forum and all the other new top fones forums for a look and see how that fone is doing.
I wont comment on screen burn,its just pathetic, i had sgs for 8 months on full screen brightness and never noticed anything.Most folk turn brightness down but full blast for hours of video/tweeting email and the battery icons did not burn onto screen.
I am doing a Neocore test for battery leaving bluetooth on and wifi connected with auto brightness screen and usual email polling and twitter set to 20 mins.Its nearly over.I will give results soon ,its at 4hrs 45 mins ATM.
I have just bought this Galaxy S2... Still waiting for delivery...
My actual phone is Siemens C25... Will I experience any difference?
i also had iphone 4 ! maybe it s true about amoled screen life but it s way ahead of iphone4 ! i head that piece of ....for 3 months and in that period was 2 months on repair 4 various reasons so....happy to have galaxy s2 now with no problem at all !

I think we are seeing ur true colours- u are a jealous hater of a troll and we all know it pal!
Man this phone heats a lot, and my bro who got arc always bugging me that i have a monster phone but without charisma, no style and low material quality... i think he's right this phone is the best in feature and performance aspect but in design and good quality material it suckssss but whyyyy Samsung, i think i'll switch it with arc, lower price and good looking.
Bing Google, 06 May 2011This really makes me angry. Having commented on this very topic myself there was an excellent ... moreHaving just posted on this, the individual who both I and Joonius replied to has again raised the issue of screen burn in super amoled, it beggars belief having already stated directly there are no reports of this iin the Galaxy 1 forum it is raised again by this very same person. The previous time it was admitted that the percentages quoted were fabricated and the only evidence offered was not a Samsung model not super amoled and 'old'. If you don't want the S2 then your free to buy another phone and post there. This is the 2nd time in 2 days you have tried to cause panic in this forum and I do hope that the moderators @ gsmarena do their jobs in vetting your submissions prior to publication. I do not understand why you do what you do. Having NOT ONE case in SGS1 and causing the panic you did, why do it again? Link to other forums is not evidence, you cannot show accuracy. Enough is enough.
Guys, i have actually got this handset, and previously had the iphone 4! i had no hesitations in ditching the iphone 4 as the S2 is easily the best phone on the market right now. the iphone feels more of a premium handset due to build quality, but the S2 beats it on every point, the screen quality, camera, usability, looks and above all the speed, i mean its got a 1.2ghz dual core processor!!! the only thing that is going to take some getting used to is the android markets lack of apps compared to apples app store, but that is an easy compromise.
i would rate this phone 10/10.
buy one and you will not regret it.
OLED display is really amazing thing, but Lifespan and Burn-in effect is essential disadvantages of it. And it is pretty serious disadvantages. Sad because SAMSUNG Galaxy S II is really good device. :(
Couple of retailers said that here in Finland its released MAY 15 or sometime on week 20 .
yours at 599 euro
and from an operator about 450 euro ( still SIM free)
The Galaxy S2 is one of the stupid-phone in the World. Usally The Samsung spread to their money for an exaggerative advertisement. They use electronic components in the Galaxy S2 so that stupid-phone has lots of equipment-faults. In Korea there are lotís of communication blog about consumerís discussion. there is Lotís of Q&A about the Galaxy S2′s faults in every 7 or 9 min. First of all itís miss-design. This phone has a plenty of bugs. Do you really want to buy a hot water pack. The Galaxy S2 can help your hand at cold winter because it generates heat every 20 min.
hehe LOL ;)
This phone is awesome, had it from Mobiles for over a week now..almost faultless. Unbelievably fast. AMOLED is incredible and its the best phone I have ever had the pleasure of owning
Nokia... ur comparing Nokia to GS2... r u crazy it's like comparing Messi to me playing football
