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?

I am from the Philippines and yes i am using the international version.

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?

Let me give u some tips from my experience using this beauty n beast. In my country Samsung is selling the G model but I was lucky that I bough a Europe set because I was couldn't wait till they launch it here. Ok, the main different with the G and non G is the processor and the GPU. The G units using a Texas instrument processor which is cheaper and slower processor compared to the original one. It is clocked at 1.2ghz but when tested it only goes up to 900++. And the GPU cannot support some of the games which the original S2 can support. I got this info from one of the website. I have seen the performance of this phones when I compare my friends who bought the G model. they are slower then.mine and they hangs
Originally mine was 2.3.2 when I bought it. I didn't have any pink or yellow or any tint problem with my display but I seriously had the out then heating up problem. sometimes I feel the heat when the phone is in my pocket. but after upgrading to 2.3.4 no more heating problem at all.
Battery drains das, yes does. u have big display with the best display. u got some widgets running.. what do u expect.. If it drains charge it again. its so simple. get a car charger if u use a car or get a external batt .. originalbatt is 1600mAh , get the 2000mAh from sumsung. trust me iphone batt is drains worst then this. But I read after the2.3.6 update the batt life is better. so I am waiting for it.
My advise to u, do not buy the G model. if u can't get the original model then go for note. Note is better. its not too big as we think. I have tried it fits comfortly into pocket n the display is perfect for gaming movies and internet. NEVER BUY THE G MODEL..
S2 is a beauty n a beast. Get it ull never regret..
