Great disappointment & unworthy for money spent. Reason as follows..
Am a user of Blackberry for the past 8 yrs, currently using BB 9780, had an idea of using android OS so went for this great samsung galaxy last month..
My first exp in samsung mobile as well as the brand itself, very inferior h/w quality, heating problem, battery draining very soon, very poor user interface though being an android OS, screen display even in a normal sunlight or outdoor is total waste, touch screen is unresponsive after coming out of internet or games & also screen becomes dark & resumes back after sometime, camera quality is the worst ive ever seen (BB 8520 is far better in camera with just 2 MP). over all samsung has proved their quality once again.
Simple Suggestion: Instead of releasing ten galaxy models per month, try to provide one good device a year which can satisfy the customer for the money spent..
Samsung lovers please excuse but be practical by using other good products too..
other friends please be careful before going for this device, tkcr..

riya chahar, 17 Feb 2013Hi frnds i am from india I was update my s2 with jellybean spain version by odin My ph... moreif your phone is rooted, first download triangleaway app from xda-developers (just google for it). reset your flash counter using this app. later download the latest official firmware available from sammobile for your region and flash it using odin. this will unroot your phone and remove traces of rooting or flashing unofficial rom.
Updated to jelly bean yesterday via Odin... Guys you gonna love it ,the all new UI( nature Ux) it's flawless and very smooth, no errors or bugs till now. The official ROM is available in androidadvices.com with step by step instructions, just follow them correctly, trust me it will not take more than 15 mins, I don't know when it will get released in India, but I'm very sure you can easily update to jelly bean, but make sure that you follow the instructions very correctly......
can any one give me link to download kies air but 64x bit ?? plz help

My ph... moreHi,
While I am not so sure if it would work. But just download the official ROM(4.0.4) by samsung. flash it via odin.
Then you would have offical rom but u need to find a software which could unroot the device.
I believe that is all you need. Hope it helps.

I have a month I bought this phone and the main camera display a message """""Unknown error by errorCallback""" how can I fix it and it´s just imposible to take a photos
does jellybean update for Samsung galaxy s2 came in India if yes is there is any bugs?? ????
The fact that Samsung is seeding out JB for the Galaxy S2 is another proof behind the success of a brand like Samsung. The lesson or exercise behind this practice is a simple one to learn for other brands like HTC which seems to be dropping further down in the sales charts is this: That it is not enough for any company to keep producing the latest products, but also to keep the loyalty of its customer base solid. In an era of economic decline the world over, the fact remains that a good number can no longer afford to purchase the latest models, but rather stick it out with older but still strong performers like the HTC Evo 3D amongst others. Since it's been proven that some of these can take the JB upgrade, it would work a long way to assuage the expectations of existing customers by making that extra effort by making JB available to them too. Loyalty is ingrained somewhere between that fine line that divides wild profiteering and keeping a solid client base in good faith.

Jelly Bean is good, but on S2 Samsung made it impossible to use "Gl to Sd" or use "directory bind", that I can use on my S3 with Jelly Bean with no problem at all, and that is the reason why I went back to ICS 4.0.4 XWLPY on my S2!
