The screen on the phone is not strong. Very weak material. Compared to my HTC Desire HD, this was a very nice phone, but the screen cracked in my pocket. Shamefull price to repair.

Make a backup of your EFS before playing with ROM's. Go to XDA to see how to take the backup in proper method.
To everyone, take your EFS backup now, its a MUST DO for all. So go do it.
Great display, but rather unconfortable to hold in 1 hand (the same size HTC is better).
I am VERY disappointed by the poor wifi reception :( thinking about returning the phone for a refund.
The web is also full of users crying because of this:
I just don't understand why this problem was never raised in the reviews? :O
MeanEYE, 08 Feb 2012Wipe cache. If that doesn't help, wipe data and cache, then reflash. cheers... found issue but now have problem with the efs folder because the imei number has been changed, so now finding a way to manually change the imei back... DON'T TRY ICS ROMS!

I was a Nokia fans before. This is the phone first phone before i made my mind to become a Nokia fans since Nokia 8210 to N82. Everything you need is in Samsung Galaxy S2. Don't worry about the battery live. It's more than enough. I think all the smart phone will drain the battery if you use it for online but compare to BB or my old N82 for online this monster much better. For texting, phone call and a little browsing maybe 10 - 15 minutes it'll bring you for at least 2 days. The first firmware it's not to good, you'd get warm, but after the first it's fixed already. Even the last firmware 2.3.6 the battery getting better.
You can use battery saver to give you more time. I use juice defender.
I hope that you'll not doubt about this phone. Just buy it and you won't regret it.
