Dazzy-D, 01 Jan 2012Hello bro,
Let me give u some tips from my experience using this beauty n beast. In my count... moreI don't think I'll be getting sgs2 anymore as I went back to the shop (that told me left 3 units without G the day before), and another salesperson told me no more :( Oh well.. I'm not thinking of getting the G version either way.
I did consider Note but it's kinda too big for my hand to handle, lol... My thumb could barely reach half of the 5.3 inch screen. There's high chance I might drop the phone very often. Haha... I'm a girl btw. :P
Anyway, thanks for your info about the G and without G. Appreciate it :)

LOLZ. Anyway, thanks again! :D

Dazzy-D, 01 Jan 2012Hello bro,
Let me give u some tips from my experience using this beauty n beast. In my count... moreDear dazzy and all s2 Owners,
Do you have any problem with camera shooting? My S2 is I9100T. The phone performance is great, fast and battery lasts more than 2 days after upgrading to 2.3.6. It has only problem with camera. When shooting inside with flash, both image and video are always darker than what we see in the screen before shooting (when using auto ISO and expo value = 0). Do any of you face the same problem with this issue? For image shooting in the room with less light, the shooting image is more or less acceptable if I put the iso = 400, and expo value = 1.5 or 2. Any advice to improve the camera performance is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Does 2.3.6 actually improve battery life..?
The system power saving mode seems to significantly improve battery life. Overheating is also addressed. But the graphics become a little laggy.
The mustard colour on the left side of the screen seems to have disappeared only to appear on the right side now.. Anyone noticed it?

And turning off the virus software and window firewall. After that it worked fine and took me about 30 mintues to complete the whole process...You might want to try it too. After update one thing that annoys me is that the homescreen has terrible lag!

I am from the Philippines and yes i am using the international version. We still have plenty of these units available in the different malls in and out of Manila. you just have to make sure that the unit is not the G unit. Honest retailers will tell you wether it's the international version or the G one.
P.S. I am currently using my phone while replying to your message. It's so fast and responsive. formware update is also available 2.3.6 via KIES.
noted one issue in 2.3.6(india). while downloading game data (525 mb) for asphalt 6 through wifi, the download stopped several times. had to restart the download again and again. upon restarting, the download would begin about 20-30 mb less than from where it had stopped. had not faced this issue with stock 2.3.3
any one else faced similar issues?
