rose, 10 Feb 2012bettary backup is very poor.The battery used to suck when I bought it back in Oct. However, some basic measures taken by me helped me improve it. After the 2.3.6 update, the battery showed a drastic improvement in overall performance. It started charging from NIL to full a bit faster and has started to give me about 20-25hrs of backup with normal usage on 3G networks with data connection almost always turned on.
If you wish to increase your battery backup, long press home button & goto task manager & follow the tips from the last tab. In addition, if you are rooted, try underclocking your CPU to 1GHz & also freeze some apps that you don't use at all using Titanium Backup PRO.
Next, goto settings-display-animation and change it to "No Animation" and try not to use live wallpapers on a daily basis. If you are even more conscious about the battery, switch to a darker (or no) wallpaper.
I have small problem, when i receive SMS i don't have sound notifications everything else works call sound ok, mail sound ok ...
notifications sound is on max but when i receive sms message i don't have sound for that message ?
those who complaining about poor battery life & yellow screen tint problem..the solution is to apply an official update that is- 2.3.6 android at this time & download an applications named "Easy Task Killer, Super Task Killer & Brightness Level" from the Market & keep the brightness at 0% indoors & 25% outdoors(25% is enough for a daylight view) & use the above 2 task killer to clear background apps hour to hour. These above instruction will improve the battery life to much extend..my GS2 survives more than 14 hours in average usage with 24x7 wifi/3g turned on & 24x7 online on whatsapp & facebook messenger..try this pals..:D..
