My favourite phone till date. Still running on Jellybean. Thinking of rooting and upgrading to KitKat/Lollipop... Can someone please tell me how the performance (speed/battery/camera) changes after rooting and upgrading the android version
Really a good phone but not for sell anymore. Most store are selling second hand galaxy s2. Besides, i rather buy grand prime with similar price and better spec or the grand 2. A lot of mid range phones these day are similar to flagship devices from 3-5 years ago. Just like the grand 2 90% similar to the first galaxy note. Its a fact. If Apple still selling the first iphone, even youngster could afford them.
my screen phone is shown as follow:
Firmware upgrade encountered as issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.
What does it mean and please tell me what's problem on my phone?
syed mushtaq, 16 Apr 2015single simI am using Samsung Galaxy S II. I love this phone,But Some problems of this phone,
1) If I mobile Data on time, Phone will more hot
2) Phone is Hang
Been using S2 since July 2011. Changed battery 6 months back. It is working awesome with no problems whatsoever.
ririn, 16 Apr 2015I'm using S2 right now and I find it awesome!! Battery percentage drops soon when screen is on... But sony and s3 have better battery consumption while screen is on... Irritating
I have samsung galaxy s2 from last 3years i am using..its very good mobile ..still no problem in the mobile.
Using it for last 44 months and still going strong. Absolutely no problems even with heavy personal and business use. Battery is usually good for about 3 yrs, I had to replace mine about 6 months ago and now it lasts for the entire day.
Only change I did after warranty period was to replace original Samsung android with Omega ROM. That got rid off all the unwanted samsung bloatware. I think that helped improving battery life and performance....
hmm my phone instead of charging to 100% it charge backwards -100% why???
Please help. . my samsung S2 always shows this - "Please wait, Your request is being processed." how to stop this? thanks . .
AnonD-382137, 03 Apr 2015I had this phone for 3 years and few months before it's dead (hard brick). This model is bad i... moreI had the same problem, because it was to less memory to upgrade the phone automatically. It suspended during this process. I have upgraded manually from PC and it works fine. Samsung should check the space needed before starting to upgrade, but it does not.
My S2 is more than 3.5yrs old now. All is ok except its doesnt get any signal(RF chip died) and gps doesnt work after it fell in water and was there for more than an hour! Except that everything works perfect. Use it for listning to music and browsing. Will use it till it dies... Really awesome phone :)
Harpreet, 22 Mar 2015Its been more than three and half years and contd. but i must say this phone worked absolutely... moreyeah u r right bro.
m using this since april'12..looking for new phn just get updated ,otherwise its awesome
I had this phone for 3 years and few months before it's dead (hard brick). This model is bad in battery usage, as well as the common software instability which was the reason my phone got stuck into boot screen before dying while trying to flash software. in general the phone is between fair to good about everything except when it comes to battery/memory/software issues
