The thing to understand about mediocre batterylife is that you can only do so and so much then using the phone actively (= the usual advices applies here about reducing/toggle screen-brightness and ony using Wifi-, Bluetooth- and GPS then needed, using static/preferbly black wallpaper). The real trick is to get controll over the "leakage" then your phone is locked down and supposedly "unused". As mentioned in previous post my best advice is to install "Apndroid" or "Apn-Switch" in order to simply toggle on/off packetdata (internet-access) on demand. Dont worry - you can still make/recieve phonecalls and SMS even with toggle in off-position. Try it.
"You will get about 30% more battery life. Im very happy with mine. Worth the money!"
I agree! The ONLY disadvantage is the lack of TPU-cases designed with that extra thickness in mind. Your best shot is a bumper-style case. As for the extended batterylife - forget "tug of war" battery-defenders trying to autoclose apps - instead install the toggle-widget "Apndroid" (packetdata on/off) and "SwithPro widget" (toggle brightness Auto/minimum and much more) + using black static wallpaper (looks especially classy on white SG2:s) - and suddenly I go though a working day with a very reassuring battery-margins. Always more then 50% left before bedtime.

AnonD-30862, 18 Feb 2012This question is for Indian users.
Has anyone bought the extended battery of 2000MAH FOR sgs2... more2000 mAh is a ~30% increase over 1650 mAh.
So the juice will also be 30% extra. Said this from common sense.
And yes, there are some members in XDA who purchased 2000 mAh battery.
AnonD-3112, 18 Feb 2012HEY! Is it just me or is it for real, that some trolls are voting for Nokia phones on GSMArena... moreNo, you are right, there are a lot of trolls in Nokia users who are voting down this phone.
Well there is absolutely no need to stop that. Let them have at least some work, with their crap devices they can't do any better but voting down this phone. Nokia wad never a true competitor in smartphone business, so ignore them.
The above came from a Samsung hater actually. I never liked Samsung, doubt I ever will...
AnonD-3112, 18 Feb 2012HEY! Is it just me or is it for real, that some trolls are voting for Nokia phones on GSMArena... moreAs far as I have seen, it has always seemed like the Samsung votes being manipulated to ensure its top positions. Do this test, as soon as a new phone hits the top spot, check how fast it gets downvoted. Then, as soon as Samsung is back in top spot, the downvoting of the rival phone also mysteriously stops. Weird eh?
HEY! Is it just me or is it for real, that some trolls are voting for Nokia phones on GSMArena and trying to bring down every other phone's ratings.?
What losers man. Galaxy S II's reputation is enough to push sales. Who reads those ratings before buying? But seriously, GSMArena need to figure out something to stop this.

This question is for Indian users.
