To the person asking about camera is too dark and the person using nokia tv-out cable.
The camera will take brighter pictures if you enable outdoor mode from the camera settings.
Nokia tv-out cable DOES NOT work with the Galaxy S2. The Nokia cable takes video signal from 3.5mm jack, but the galaxy s2 uses the MHL port to send out video. The MHL port is where you connect your charger and usb to. You need a special adapter in order to send the video to tv (MHL to HDMI adapter for example. Most adapters will also include another port for charging/usb)
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2012Why turn off live wallpapers etc to save power? I didnt buy this phone to turn off everything.... moreThat's quite right!!! why buy a smart phone and limit yourself using it, it's a none sense!!! I bought my unit a couple of months ago and i was also caught with that battery dilemma, i solved my problem by having two extra batteries and a desktop charger and everything went alright, i have enough time using my SII surfing the web and playing my favorite games, also the risk of loosing my phone while charging is out of the question.
Hi friends I have bought a new s2. After using it for a week I noticed some issues and have some clarification too.
1. Battery drain is not an big issue. Uninstall unwanted apps. Turn off data network and wifi when not in uses.
2.overheating better than many phones which are even thicker.
3.wifi button bug, distortion while switching to 5.1 ch message notification of read message
these are the issue for which I need help.
malik, 26 Jul 2012is there any problem when i upgrade my samsung galaxy s2 to ics 4.0 ice cream sandwich please ... moreI think the only problem you can encounter when you upgrade to ICS 4.0.4 is the lack of FM radio, I've tried Installing 2 of the ROMs in the net and both of them have missing FM radio, but everything seems ok, I've tried the HyDrOG3NICS and DRAGONICS and the latter is much better and much stable. you can download them in this site.http://www.xdafileserver.nl/index.php?dir=Samsung%2FGalaxy+S+II%2F hope it helps. But try it carefully and read all the tutorials http://www.pinoyandroids.com/2012/04/best-rom-for-samsung-galaxy-s2_15.html so as not to brick your phone and lost it's warranty. Good luck.
AnonD-64271, 25 Jul 2012how can i upgrade my s ii to android 4.0? and how can i download kies?I have read some instruction in the net, try to surf the web, anyway the tutorials are self explanatory, here is one of the links, hope it helps http://www.pinoyandroids.com/2012/04/best-rom-for-samsung-galaxy-s2_15.html. i tried it myself and it's nice.
Why turn off live wallpapers etc to save power? I didnt buy this phone to turn off everything. Little search on internet gives you the solution, bigger battery (3200mah) with other back cover, it's not so difficult people..
Will the gs2 be updated to GB? i was considering of buying this or the galaxy nexus. which one is better?
Eeyore_Ottawa, 24 Jul 2012If you delete all your apps and run it just as a phone and email you will get fantastic batter... moreLearn more about Android! You do not need any "task killers" because they do nothing but drain your battery when they have to close apps that Android then automatically open agian! Why not use ram and preload apps if that ram is not used anyway, that is the reason why Android use so much ram but if other apps or games need more ram then Android automatically close apps so that you never ever run out of ram memory even if the unused, wasted, ram looks small! Apps that Android preload in the ram do not drain battery because apps that are open but actually really do nothing does not drain battery!
The outdated iPhone 4S can not be compared with S2, 4S can not even do real multitasking!
