Anonymous, 03 Jan 2012I tried this phone out and it is so laggy. Ill stick to the iphone 4s because there never is ... moreThat's because iOS 5 has HW acceleration, which GB doesn't or very low. In ICS it should be a different story.

50°C ambient? Jeez!
Just keep in mind one thing, whenever you day device temp aside it you'll also need to mention the ambient temp, without it its meaningless.
Someone's device temp is 50°C living in London and the other living in India with the same device temp has load of difference between them. Hope you got my point.
i upgrade the phone to 2.3.6 via kies but the heating problem still there. Battery also lasts 6-7hrs max without wifi or 3g on. Plz anybody suggest some solution. Thanx.
nice handling, and a very fast phone.
the screen is wonderful. GS2 is much better then iphone!
Neither I'm a fan of Apple nor that of Android, But it's very much clear that S2 stands in front in all sense compared to iPhone4S !
I think both iphone and galaxy s 2 are good ,, I've tried them all , galaxy gives you freedom in using not like iphone, but the its applications are lesser the iphone's.
Hi all. I'm from malaysia. I really want to buy this phone but since there is no I9100 instead of I9100G, its just a dream..Please help me..
I tried this phone out and it is so laggy. Ill stick to the iphone 4s because there never is any lag.

50° is high, but not in danger zone. Mine roamed around 47/48 in summer, ambient was around 33/34°C.
And no, no way that temp could harm hardware components.
i was using galaxy ace previously. I just got galaxy S2 recently. S2 is a great phone, it's much faster than ace and it's display is excellent. It's slim, making it easy to slide into my pocket. The 1.9 GB of storage enable me to install lots of apps. The sync to gmail allows me to backup my contacts from the previous phone with ease.

[deleted post]that's true, but i have to say it's not all about the SPECS... it's about the practice - i don't think that the gsII is faster than iphone4 allthough it has an dual core cpu!
it's not bad, but it's an samsung and it has android!! :/ like nokia/symbian more!

guys, i have installed a battery widget which constantly gives the live reading of battery temperature, surprisingly while charging+ surfing over edge, my phone was showing 50 degree Celsius. it is kind of weird, and i was stunned to c the battery which gave a nice heat out of its 3,7v capability. one more thing, even the battery being of 3.7v, my battery widget shows the battery output more than 4v. i mean, this is crazy, i dont understand, hw can this happen. but i am prity sure about the heat it radiates as even while charging and while playing games, internet surfing , or even using ICS launcher, i feel that excessive regularly. i am prity sure that this will damage the components in future. till the time the phone is covered under warrenty, its ok, but after that it will be quite expensive to deal with for the each and every part to be replaced damaged by heat
