GS2 fan, 10 Nov 2014seems no one could answer me , but since then I have found the following solutions which can h... moreI always have a SII and use to suffer like you. I then learnt all the tricks of the trade to let the phone consume less power. First of all...install EASY BATTERY SAVER from the play store and set the mode to SUPER POWER SAVING...it will kill your wi-fi connections when the phone goes to sleep...which is especially good if you fall asleep leaving wi-fi on. Turn off all the radios when you don't need them eg. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and Mobile Data. Turn off features like auto-sync, auto-backup etc. Reduce the brightness to little and nothing (you can have EASY BATTER SAVER do this for you as well). Let the batter deplete completely at times (as in that the phone shuts off due to a dead battery) before plugging in the charger and allow it to charge in off mode at times. There are many little tweaks you can do to get more battery life. I listed the main ones. Do some searches online for more tips. Please let me know the outcome.
seems no one could answer me , but since then I have found the following solutions which can help
1. there is one app which I never tried called PowerMax from the market, I installed it for few hours now and that seems to have improved the power consumption.
2. Also you need to go to your setting and activate your power SAVING mode, yes all the four options needs to be active.
3. If you using google Now then deactivate it
if above failed try factory reset which means you need to back up ALL OF YOUR DATA/PIC/FILES etc, there is a second level of factory setting which it will keep your pictures/files but you lose texts, and apps etc, I suggest to try that one first.
I am giving this a try for few days before re-set and report back, but so far I don't like jelly bean, don't upgrade because Gingerbread was fantastic.
please share anything else that you tried and if that worked to save battery.
also to mention it charges so slowly specially since the upgrade, but main problem is the battery drains so rapidly !!
I notice many people here actually complain about this,
if you find a solution that worked for you, please share it with me.
I just know , none of the battery and task killers apps work , I tried all the apps, no luck,
something happen to all the GS2 phone which is causing this and Samsung needs to sort this out"!

PLEASE HELP GSM
can someone make a suggestion or HELP me please:
I have this amazing phone Galaxy S2, which I bought it in 2011, I never had any problem with the phone till recently that battery drains so fast! (50% drop in 3 hours with just couple of short calls!!!!!)
so I first tried all the best Battery apps to fix it, nothing worked, believe me I tried task killers, everything you name it.
I changed the battery with new Genuine Samsung battery which I paid £20, but still drains to 50% in less than 3 hours with couple of calls only!.
Last night I upgraded I was so fed up and upgraded my beautiful gingerbread to latest Jelly bean via Kies!! I thought that would sort it, but actually it is worse!!!! yes believe me the battery is now drains more rapidly than before!! and I am not sure if I like jellybean !! :-(
I know I can't go back to gingerbread !! but please help me to sort out this battery problem,
