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...!
hey i am in UAE and my phone is still runing 2.3.5

No more Samsung, 07 Apr 2012because of all samsung fans here and because of their lies!! I bought this stupid s2 and I wis... moreits sad tht u seem to be having a bad experience with the phone, but only if you wld read more in the user opinions, u wld knw hw to fix ur prob.. for the over heating, update ur firm ware from 2.3.3 to which higher version is available in ur region (mine is 2.3.6).. the over heatin issue is fixed.. as far is battery life is concerned, tryin switchin off the WCDMA mode in ur network settings to 2G mode, incase u not using 3G.. also keep the screen brightness at minimun in doors, u can adjust it by sliding ur finger on d main screen on the notification bar left or right instead of always goin in d settings menu.. ofcrse for tht u will hav to keep brigtness setting on manual first.. hope this helps.. as for the plastic feel, its subjective.. cheers.
Kavoor, 06 Apr 2012Indian S2 is not dual core anymore anyone checked!!!!!!!that's true s2 must 1.2 dual core
because of all samsung fans here and because of their lies!! I bought this stupid s2 and I wish i didn't!!
One of the big problems is that how rediculsly it become very very hot when you use for example the sat nav or when you play games!! extremly hot! like you can't acually hold it!!
second disaster is the battery life! really bad.
no mentioning the plasticy feeling....
Samsung fans!! it's ok to be a fan of somthing but it's wrong to lie to people!!! Im stuck now in 18 months contract for god seek...
DON'T BUT SAMSUNG AT ALL! I WARRENED YOU! go for HTC OR SONY ( if you like android) OR APLLE ( if you don't like android)

Kavoor, 06 Apr 2012Indian S2 is not dual core anymore anyone checked!!!!!!!No galaxy S2 has been launched so far with single core processor.Basically Samsung has blend both the model GT-I9100 and GT-I9100G into the market and treated it as Samsung Galaxy S2 but you may find that some of the users commented that both are not the same and there are performance differences when you run some resources crunching app/ games. Basically both the I9100 and I9100G have the identical features as claimed by Samsung but the only thing that differentiate both is the processor and GPU that the unit run. I9100 run on 1.2GHz ARM CortexA9 Exynos 4210 and ARM Mali-400 GPU while I9100G uses Texas Instruments OMAP4430 CPU and PowerVR SGX540 GPU.
While according to the review from Lowyat member, the processor for I9100G seems to be capped at lower clock speed of 1008Mhz and it seldom goes up till the 1.2GHz as claim by Samsung even while performing Stress Test or benchmarks. But one thing for sure, the I9100G seem to have a better control of Galaxy S2′s poor battery life and overheating issue faced by most of I9100 users. And as claim by the review, user of I9100G may encounter some problem to download some apps / games in the Android Market/Samsung Apps on I9100G as it failed to be optimized for the TI processor.
Hi guys, I am not finding the converter icon in my Galaxy S2 to convert area, length, etc. Please help. Thanks.
vote for galaxy s2 at below left corner...if total hit is increased we may get android 5.0 os in future
by refering this gsmarena.com
one week ago it was 61% of vote now it is 50%
A survey has conducted that iphone4s os will often crash 80% of total...and the battery backup of iphone4s is totaly poor(SUCKS) compared normal android froyo 2.2 os
All the apps in apple market are costly...there is less free apps available in apple market compared to android market
there is no custom firmware for iphone os and it is costly !!! Its yearly sales percentage increases by 1.5% from 2011-2012...Even moderate people can afford android devices at lowest prices
I installed Lightening ROM 2.6 in My S2.
It comes with ICS v4.0.3 and rooted with a cool blue theme.
Everything working fine and faster.
Much faster than standard ICS and better looking.

The best Android machine till date.
Despite the fact that the phone is slightly on the upper side in price band, it's worth every penny of it...
The phone has absolutely silky smooth touch feel, amazing speed buoyed by a powerful processor and a kickass back mounted camera.
Secondary camera is amazingly well...
In addition, the Wifi direct feature is absolutely a cherry on the cake and this phone thus deserves to the best android device around!!!

It is not all about teoretical hardware specs!
We can not even know if the coming game Max Payne will even be supported on S2 even though the hardware is more than capable running/playing it. When you buy an Android you do not really know what Android games and apps that are fully supported on your new Android phone!
LosHo, 05 Apr 2012I have been using this phone for abt 2 months. This is the best phone EVER!!! Everything runs ... moreCompared to S2 the iPhone 4S hardware is not great! It is just a 1Ghz dual core! And its screen is IPS LCD. Personally I think AMOLED is much better in terms of battery and colour reproduction. What Apple has done is they have taken a normal LCD screen and increase the resolution.
And iPhone 4S is not worth the cost especially in India. They want 50k plus for that crap. I must be mad to get that for 50K plus. I can get a laptop with core i7 for that kind of money.
Apple doesn't respect the Indian market!
Actually please don't compare S2 with iPhone. There is no room for comparison at all. In hardware terms iPhone is way behind. You can check out in Google about the iPhone hardware.
'The' phone to buy. With its ARM Dual-Core Exynos and Mali 400MP GPU which is quad core, this phone is extreme. 1GB RAM makes it future proof as well at least for the next 1 to 2 years.
Superb Screen. Awesome Camera. Zero lag in taking photos. Full HD Video recording.
Lots of customizations. Highest Custom Rom support.
CynogenMod, MIUI, you name it! And the new CM9 is superb.
All in all the best phone to buy when you see in terms of developer support and hardware support.
So if you are not a noob and you know how to handle phones properly and you are not going to just use it for calls and use the stock firmware you will be surprised with the personalization it can offer.
There may be other phones with better hardware now but nothing beats it! The have made an almost complete phone.
