Hi.. Been using galaxy s2 for more than 2 months already.. and encountered no problems at all! regarding battery life, more mild to moderate usage, I get more than 2 days (not rooted, has gingerbread 2.3.6, disabled background data, used Go Launcher Ex..)...
Please see this screenshot of my handset as a proof!
I charge the phone when I got less than 10% pf the battery and make sure I pull-out the plug when it's 100% complete (you'll hear a sound when it's full).. I don't overcharge the phone for several hours, I never use the phone while charging and let the phone rest then it's overused and gets heat up (when it is still in 2.3.3, before my upgrade to 2.3.6)!
If you just know how to take care of your phone, then you will never encounter problems with this beast! Others say battery life is poor, but I say, it isn't! for moderate to heavy usage, I get more than 24 hours! and that's better enough for a SUPER smartphone already... That is why I love this phone over other phones! it's a whole-packaged handset!

Copy & paste doesn't wotk on USSD coding mode, a complete disaster when someone wants much cheaper charges on roaming text messages.
And just why anybody can't get an upgrade on Android O.S. versions on the web? or thru Kies???

I don't want my Galaxy SII outsmarted by other smart phones.

Android OS is not well known for its good battery backup, so don't expect non smartphone like backup ;)
