Hi, I'm from Bangladesh. I have been using this awesome phone for last six months. At first I was not into it (I own an N8, which was better in Anna), but now I'm totally satisfied. My query is, how do I update it to ICS? Is the update available in Bangladesh? I bought it from a friend who got it from Malaysia. I can provide you my phone's details if needed. I don't want to use other than Samsung updates. If someone knows about it, please response.
Take care. Ciao.

NO the Xperia S does NOT have the best display the Gala... morehahhahah Great Answer man, sure SGS2 i monster of not just last year till this year... untill SGS 3 come out.
only Galaxy note have better display then SGS2, but only display beside its size is not comfortable to use. so till this time only SGS2 is the Winner.
Anyone wanting to save some extra battery life??? well...simply just download Easy Battery Saver from the market...it actually works.
"Gingerbread software is very stable and has great performance, so it’s not a bad idea to stay on this platform if your top priority is extreme stability."
"Another effect of the hardware acceleration is that it can make the battery drain faster in some cases. An example of this is video playback, where the hardware acceleration requires every video frame to be run through the GPU, thus making the system use more power than it would have without HW acceleration.
As a developer, you should therefore evaluate if HW acceleration is required or not, as it comes with a cost in terms of RAM usage, start-up time and possibly even battery duration which can have negative effects on the user experience." "Another change in ICS compared to Gingerbread is that Google has moved a lot of the SQL handling from the native to the Java layer. In our internal studies, we have seen that read and write operations to the SQL database takes longer time, which slows down the apps. Many applications perform a lot of SQL operations when started, which greatly impacts the start-up time.
According to good practice, database operations or http requests should not be performed in the main thread. However, we know that there are quite a few applications that perform these kinds of operations directly in the main thread, which might cause them to hold up other operations. Also, when reading feedback on ICS software out on the market now, we’ve seen comments about people having problems with some applications and games."
merelogic, 01 Apr 2012After reading so much about this phone I finally went and bought it. To tell you the truth it'... moreAre you using any cover or back cover ? If yes remove it and use phone and check without anything.
ithehappy, 01 Apr 2012Quite easily.Yes. But you have to change the csc of your phone. Otherwise wherever in the world, you will connect it to kies, it will show you Egypt csc and it will show Egypt last firmware.
I purchased gs2 a month ago and so far everything is fine except this dead pixel i notice...is it cover by the samsung warranty service?
Sam, 31 Mar 2012Hi,
Can anybody please let us know when is the s2 in India getting the ICS update?Officially it's unknown. Samsung India is crap as always you know.
But go to XDA dude, there is a rumor that XXLPQ ROM with DDLP8 Modem and LP7 CSC is an Indian ICS release, it's just not available in Kies yet.
I am using that ROM for two weeks now and can't say i am disappointed. So go, grab it. Look out for the person Intratech and look at his thread of ROM's.
Tabassum, 31 Mar 2012Does it means that s2 has sharper display then s???? Of course, 3 vs 1 pixel.
