It is true that this phone often get hang/lag ?
What about the overheating ?
If I buy the 1800mAh battery, will it solve the overheating issue ?
For best sound quality, download TTPOD from android market, for video download MX video player from market.
I bought new S2 but it's Maps not working.. anyone can suggest me what to do... should i reinstall from the market???

Samsung has to work on few things to be leader in the smartphone market.
1st: Sound quality as its not upto the mark if we compare with Sony and Apple. So Samsung has to work on its sound technology.
2nd: Lookwise its not as appealing as other smartphones like apple, sony.
3rd: The build quality is also not so impressive as compared to other phone.
So if the SGS-III will be coming with 2Ghz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM and 12MP camera as per the rumour, it will be the winner of 2012.
dush, 23 Jan 2012is the sound quality that bad? Plus how do you check on the software version, never used samsu... morephone is good overall. the phone itself isnt hard. just think of it as an iphone with widgets. camera is superb if you see the reviews just need good settings. doesnt have any glitches but i hacked my phone so it is smoother and better interface. sound quality is awesome with or without headset. very loud and clear and can be louder is sound boost on android marker( paid app) video quality is also good very clear and stands out compared to lcd screens

I am from India and seeking for Update to android 2.3.6. I visited samsung service centre and they said all data will be removed including apps and they have no provision to backup of apps as ANDROID LACKS in this. Is that so? Will backups available in android market will be sufficient for apps backups. Nokia and iphone have apps backup option. Why not samsung?
Rahul Dey, 23 Jan 2012Thankx for replying. The sound system is working fine.

Phone gets over heated often. The also gets switched off automatically at times. ---> Usually smartphone get warm because it's how we hold it. that's one of the reason why the get warm. 2nd is, because smartphone are like PC it has hardware components/circuit. ex.Processor - the same concept on PC, if the processor get over heated and reach it's maximum temp system will automatically restart to cool down so system won't get fry.
hope this will help to understand your smarphone status.

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.
