how do i improve the camera quality? it takes awful pics inside! but outside its great , wat do i do?!!!!
is the sound quality that bad? Plus how do you check on the software version, never used samsung, but specs seem to pull me for it. Picture n video quality good? Im from kenya
Writing this from a sgs2, side by side wit my nokia n9. Been browsing gsmarena on both now. its bad. the sgs2 has a terrible blue tint on the screen and both sgs2 and n9 are pixelated compared to lcd and slcd phones. amoled is bad on all cellfones but worst on sgs2.
beware beware india! samsung cheating brutally... bought gs2 but it turned out 9100G instead of 9100 model. and somehow begged and got it replaced mine from croma. was shocked to see out of 3 boxes all turned out the ti omap version 9001g. samsung selling 9100 models in 9100g boxes also.... beware and check thouroughly. this is a total shock. also this lower version gs2 9100g is being sold at higher price even when its not exynos.

No, OTA update is not supported for India, along with many other countries. So Kies update is the only way to upgrade the phone.
Of course Kies comes in play if you don't know about Odin ;)
I bought this Samsung Galaxy S II. Overall it is a good mobile but due to carrying Andriod 2.3.3, it has 2 major limitations:
1) For its proper functioning, it requires to have a gmail account. Once I gave it gmail credentials, my device got open for everybody to check my emails. Anbody ask for my set to call somebody; may have access to all private data on it. How hard was this for them to password protect the mail inbox?
2) I have an IMAP account configured through the built in "Mail" program. First of all, when I send messages from this program, it copies them to a local "Sent" folder, and there is no way to specify a remote IMAP folder for this (e.g. "INBOX.Sent"). So then, I try to move messages manually between the local "Sent" and the IMAP "INBOX.Sent" folder, and it appears to work fine, but when I check from another IMAP client (e.g. Thunderbird or MS Outlook on my PC etc.), I don't see those messages in "INBOX.Sent".
I think if these limitations are addressed, it would be the best handset for a businessman especially due to its wide screen and light weight.
hi friends, can any one tell me is it must to update the recent update of software only through kies or we can also do it from 'check update' option available in settings options of our phone...
Navin, 23 Jan 2012Thanks Dear ! Would do that as the last option.. Anymore input on the following issue .. ... moreAndroid 2.3.6 update is available in Indian region. Update your mobile using the official Kies software. It might get solved through this update.

if you are tired of your current S2 theme, you can download 'go launcher' from the andriod market, whats cool abt this is that you can still customize the new themes to be the way you got it out of the box... if you feel that the change is to drastic for you just click on the middle button on your phone and select TWLauncher and it should revert to its out of the box settings!!!
divu, 22 Jan 2012Thnx bt s2 has a very short battery life pls tell me hw can i improve my battery life...pls heloAs well as bettery is concerned of S2, As per my experience Go Launcher EX Pro is a way better to have good bettery. Just always close open apps with a single touch on apps manu.With moderate use i am spending more than 2 days. I think that poor battery life should not be a problem of smart phones, we have laptops in offices, home etc where we can charge with usb, Orgionbal 2000 mah bettery is also available... So battery is no issue.....
I bought it 2 months ago; fantastic and amusing kit I must admit, however, camera is really a frustration. Battery is not superb as well. Honestly I expected more for the 650 UDS I paid.
