This is an awesome phone. It has all the features which I could have asked for. Lightweight.
Camera performance is poor in flash mode even after the firmware update. It may be some software issues.
It has battery which lasts only for day when you surf, talk and text. If you use additional features like GPS and navigation, battery cunsumption is high.
Best phone inthe whole universe...
Best smartphone of 2011...
Im still enjoying this phone infact love this phone more than my girlfriend ...
The original 2000mA battery does help getting me from about 4pm on 10% battery too 6.30pm 10% battery when i get home..That said between 4.30pm 6.30pm its 2 texts and a one minute call and one hour of mp3 on way home.This varys obviously but this is a heavy day and take of charge at about 6.30am in morning.
So the 2000mA battery will last medium to heavy usage for about 12 hrs.Its odd because some days the battery seems to last longer than others..I know what i do and thats i start off enjoying the fone twittering and catching up with BBC news bit of 2-3 minute video and so on ,,then we notice our battery going down and start to reduce usage..So if i went ahead and used the fone all the time i reckon 6-7 hrs of battery life..Over weekends etc when laptops available the battery can last 2 days on sgs2 just fiddling with it now and then..The only fone i ever had that could be used to high heaven and last the full day is Nokia E72..
Actually, i wrote it a little confusing, what i ment was - is it possible to STRETCH files horizontally that need to be stretched to attain the right proportion in 16:9. So, i guess that's not possible? They can only be stretched to fit the hight, which still makes the picture deformed, now i get it

Puck, 13 Dec 2011Hey, is it possible to playback video files in 16:9 aspect ratio without the picture being def... moreWell, someone answered you, and I'm here to clarify the fasle statement made by him.
GS2 default player has the option to playback video at 1) original aspect ratio and resolution. 2) Fit to height according to the original aspect ratio. 3) Fit to screen[all scratched out both vertically and horizontally].
I believe when you say 'corp' you mean by rescaling. Because 'corp' in playback means there will be lost pixels in the video.
I found that Motorola Milestone with Android 2.1 GETS ENORMOUSLY HEATED within 4-5 minutes during a phone call.
Symbian Phones were defintely far better !!
Does anybody observe the same with Galaxy SII or any other ANDROID device on slightly longer duration calls ?
Your answer will definitley help me decide buying Samsung Galaxy II.

Hey, is it possible to playback video files in 16:9 aspect ratio without the picture being deformed (it usually vertically stretches the picture)?
I tried MX, Mobo, QQ players on my Galaxy i7500 but no player can crop 16:9 aspect without deforming it (ajusting it to the size of the screen, which is not real widesreen)
This phone is shit! All plastic body, a copy paste from the iPhone which includes the box the look even the OS looks extremely a copy version of iOS!!
Want to get the source of creativity just ahead to apple away from any other copiers!
