Pahang, 22 Mar 2012Hi Parot,
Of course your device is not showing 1Gb of RAM its because of the compression ra... moreRAM does not fall into the "Disk" category. If you have 1GB of RAM that equates to 1024MB. Very common mistake to confuse RAM with being disk related. It isn't.
The reason why the total RAM shown is different from the RAM in the specifications is because some of the RAM is reserved for system use, such as the frame buffer, since the GPU does not have any dedicated RAM as a desktop computer would.
I'm using Anker Battery 1900mAh from 2 weeks and guys, this is the best extended battery and you can use the original battery cover. After 5th charge, the app "Battery Monitor Widget Pro" shows that the actual battery size is 1963mAh :) Recommend the battery to all of you SGS2 owners.
This battery gives me over 10h of watching movies with display set at 50% brightness.

Problems in the phone aren't solved, but software is much better and maybe faster.

The screen keeps on having a visible yellow tint on its left side.
Actually, I can't say it's any worse.
The OS is different and I like it better like this, but hardware problems sure haven't disappeared.
Just try pointing the camera at a white wall/paper/background.
BTW, Samsung has also refused to exchange my phone.
Also had it "repaired" under warranty, but no visible improvements. The standard, "That's normal. All phones do that" reply. Shameful.
Can someone tell me from wich country is my Gs2,because I bought it Germany but I think isnt from there
Baseband version I9100BOKJ1
Kernel version 188.8.131.52-I9100BOKK1-CL511356
All I know is a T-Mobile...reply me please someone
gigi, 21 Mar 2012which phone is better s2 or note guys with experience help me choose.. thnxThat's a tough question. I have the S2 and the Note and I'd have to say that I prefer my S2.
The S2 is easier to use with one hand which makes it a better phone; also when it comes to custom Roms I feel that there are more developers customizing the S2.If you're going to be doing allot of web surfing or you need the pen that comes with the Note then I suggest going for the Note.Either way they're both great devices.
hey cc, I know what you mean I'm having the same problem with the program saying 'your device does not support software up grading via kies' exactly but guess no one know's how to sort it or fix it, would be nice if they did :-/
If I root my S2, will it solve the battery Issues? Coz my phone battery only last a couple of hours. Im using my s2 for about 2 months now, and I learned that if I root my fone it will void my warranty so Im thinking of rooting it next year. Anyone who can answer my query?!
PaRoT, 22 Mar 2012Hi im just wondering why is it the specs in the galaxy s2 is 1gb of ram but the truth is it on... moreHi Parot,
Of course your device is not showing 1Gb of RAM its because of the compression rate of the disk. Same thing happens with your computer harddisk or basically anything that falls within the definition of disk.
where is ics? been waiting on kies and all it says is 'updated to latest software' the most worrying bit is it says 'your device does not support software up grading via kies' on the basic information page... HELP!!!!!! please someone anyone?
Root your phone, install 'adfree' from Play shop, also install Titanium Backup then delete an app called 'adserver'. You could also freeze bloatwares (software that constantly hogging your RAM like AP News and software update)
You would notice a significant improvements on battery performance later on.
