This is one of the fantastic phones that I have ever used. What disappointed me slightly was the battery life. But that I think should be expected with phone with such a large brilliant screen and the huge potential of the hardware and software.
Another thing - Tasker is one application which makes owning an android phone very interesting. Potential ability of this app to customise your phone is phenomenal.

Usually India gets the samsung firware updates a litle late than any other country...expect 1-2 weeks...it should be there.
guys can any of u tell when ICS update will be released for my precious S2 in tamil nadu, India officially???
[deleted post]At Kies, download kies at samsung.com then after the download you will be required to download all the updates, finish it. After that connect your usb cord to your phone and your pc. Kies should be able to recognize it and it will tell you there is a new update for your phone. Just select update, and wait for it to finish.

ALL PHONES have it either HTC, Sony...etc. already tried it all. Using this beast for almost 2 months and not having any problem. There are no perfect phones so better hold your mouth on saying non sense. Im at ICS and the battery is supporting my daily needs. FYI

Took 117 camera shots with my S2 and battery life was still at 82% after 6 hours! Great phone indeed and this is something an Iphone 4S can only dream of. :)

With its ARM Dual-Core Exynos and Mali 400MP GPU which is quad core, this ... moreI agree.Beside my S2 I also have a Galaxy Note and I can tell you that I prefer my S2.I'm not saying it's better, just that I prefer it and no phone comes near the S2 when you want to customize. As for those people complaining that they are having problems with their phones all I can say is return it cause you probably got a faulty unit although if they give you another from the same batch then most likely you'll have the same problem again :/. Best of luck.

Even some new iPhone 4S... are defect and need to be repaired or replaced, you are probably one of those unlycky few that got a defect S2!

I recommend not to "upgrade" to ICS because ICS drain the battery extremly fast when using the phone/screen, and it overheats so much that I can not hold it in my hand when light browsing on the Internet with stock browser, and too many apps and games are not supported on ICS, and the compass is very incorrect and gps is very bad on ICS! Stay on GB and you will have the best phone in the world today!
Sony Experia S and HTC One X both have problems with batterydrain..., and ICS will make that even worse and give the same problems as S2 have, apps and games not supported...!
