bhushan.i, 03 Jan 2012dude, i am not talking about ambient temperature, ambient temperature is on an average around ... moreguys... don't worry about the temp.To make Samsung PCB its must go through min 235C via re flow oven.Plastic component can stand to max 100C.If your phone temp shot to 50C its normal.The only problem is you will feel warmed and discomfort around your ears.Currently I'm using Bluetooth to overcome this problem.Samsung should provide free Bluetooth if they know they cant control heat from this phone.Anybody agreed with me?

50° is high, but not in danger... moredude, i am not talking about ambient temperature, ambient temperature is on an average around 24, it is device temperature i am talking about. I am on 2.3.3 and about to get it updated to 2.3.6 and i hope so it will solve the problem.

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!
bhushan.i, 03 Jan 2012 guys, i have installed a battery widget which constantly gives the live reading of battery te... moreI dont know what firmware you are on but this is a common problem on 2.3.3 which can be fixed updateing to 2.3.4.Also overheating is or can be caused by a faulty kernel and by flashing your firmware to 2.3.5 and rooting to a CF-Root kernel you will cut those temps in half.If you want to stay on stock best to wait till the update but if you already have it then use your warranty and hopefully convince the service centre that the kernel is corrupt.
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

ramr, 03 Jan 2012Hi! how do i update firmware using KIES? I have 2.3.3 Salamat! :)Connect your phone to pc using the usb cable. Then, open KIES software. if you don't have it yet, download it from samsung website or just google it and you'll find a downloadable one. Once your phone is detected by KIES, it will tell you if there is an update. Just follow the steps after that.
