Anonymous, 15 Feb 2012i also have the same problem, can anyone please tell me how to make the battery last longer?I think Samsung is kinda tweaking that in the ICS update which will be available next march.For now,use a medium brightness setting(or auto brightness if ur ok with it) and power saving mode.
This question is for Indian users.
Has anyone bought the extended battery of 2000MAH FOR sgs2?
How long does the phone last with that?
Is it available in India?
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2012i also have the same problem, can anyone please tell me how to make the battery last longer?first of all im a galaxy user and i can use 13 hours of heavy use (music all day) and have 11% left.
first of all brightness is down to low or visible
2nd i hacked it to make better user experience and lasts longer
third i bought a battery back 2000mah (official ones)which costs around 50 dollars or less
4th i turn off my data when i dont use it.
5th turn off gps. you dont need it all day
6th turn off auto sync like gmail etc and turn off weather refresh.
7th use the tast manager effectively. some games dont turn off when u press the home button and stays on wasting battery.
8th delete samsung apps(need to root which is a hack)
9th no live wall papers and no bright wall papers as it uses more battery power.

Yesterday I went to a Samsung store with my friend and I saw a Galaxy S2 so I tried it. I took a photo of a white table so I could see if it has a burn-in. I saw the burn in of the battery, signal,background & menu icons. My friend didnt believe me till he saw it. This phone has the BURN IN problem. I LOLed, and so did my friend. Im so glad I havent bought a GS.
The phone is awesome, but so expensive and it has burn in problems? No thx.
