My Galaxy S2 is awesome and fun. But...I have to replace it about every 9 months. That is frustrating. And...the only way to replace it is with a reconditioned model which means it has been fixed after someone else sent it back, and most likely will never work for more than 9 months. Most likely, as phone prices come down, I will upgrade to an S3.
I have been using S2 for just over 2 years, it's been brilliant until last week. I took the battery out while the phone is on to reset my voicemail, and put the battery back on 30 secs later. But noticed that the screen of the phone all turned into PINK, the battery bar used to be green, but now orange colour :( Other functions are all fine, such as making phone call, sending text, wifi,,,
Any idea what's going on here? or anyone bumped into this situation before? I am now looking for a new phone, since this one is still working part from display is awful. So really cant decide whether should I change to a new model or not.
very nice phone but not good battery backup after upgrade jelly bean 4.1.2
this phone is very smart,im using galaxy S II since 2012,as of now its still my partner,very clear screen,very fast in browsing both data or wifi connection,untill now 2015,ive'd no plan to replace my galaxy S II.
@johnny, one likely reason for that behaviour is a broken battery, does not help even you have USB charging connected.
I cant open the phone only recovery and rebooting display please help me to open
Did you observed better battery standby time compared to JB 4.1.2 ? Thanks
i am having this device, and this is the most great device i have ever used. As i was worried about lollipop update. But via here: https://www.androidpixel.com/2015/01/cyanogenmod-12-5-0-2-samsung-galaxy-s2-gt-i9100.html
I updated my phone to android lollipop and now it works like charm
How to expand battery life of gt i9100 jelly bean....if its possible by custom rom then also tell me
The s3 doesn't even have kitkat update so there is no chance this will have the lollipop update unless you use a rom like Slim L Pop

Yes, if you install Cynamogen Mod 11 instead of the original ROM from Samsung.It´ll run really nice and smooth but you must to root the device.
