Deepika, 07 Dec 2011Hi any one plz help me........... Wnat to buy new smart phone and struct between iPhone 4S and... moreI had iphone 4 for a while but its just boring and so restricted..Want fun and total control of your smartfone and top spec sgs2 is just so good it really is..If you dont like battery "which i think is pretty good" you could spend all that money you save on Samsungs own extended 2000mA battery..Thats my input..
Android cool, 07 Dec 2011Do not buy s2 white color (i9100G)! My fren using it, it is sometimes lag and many time hang w... moreis it possible that your friend got an sgs2 clone? because from my experience, this phone is pretty stable on stock
Today was the day i was disappointed about my S2
The phone was switching off by it self (automatically) I never thought it will happen to my phone so I browsed the web to see its a common problem I recently bought this phone from HK. Now im in sri lanka. I cant even change the phone
I thought this was the best phone in the world you disappointed me S2 Im really sad..
I believe its because the battery is loose that may be the reason why its switching off by it self.
Never expected this from you samsung :(

Hey guys, i m planning for purchasing new phone.. in ur opinion which one is best to buy, Samsung Galaxy S2 or Iphone 4S.. which one is best to purchase???
AnonD-17452, 07 Dec 2011hi guys im from the philippines and i wanna know if the newer batch of gs2 still got the heati... moreHey carl im also from the phil. I had this phone now for months and i had no prob whatsoever, i still have the Gingerbread 2.3.3 version and still the phone remains fantastic. The only 1 small prob that i have on this phone is battery life... on moderate usage just for calls and text it'll last for 2-3 days what i do is turn off these things....
1. wifi - off (when not in use)
2. GPS - off
3. Background data - off
4. Packet data - off
5. 3g - off (just choose GSM)
6. Bluetooth - off (when not in use)
7. install - Adv task killer app.
.... with these turned off your battery should last your 2 days or more(depends on usage). But if your heavy on WiFi with background data and GPS .. then i suggest you either get a spare battery w/dock charger or get used to charge the phone at least 5 times a week. But i tell you, this phone is FANTASTIC !!!!! The hell with battery life, just get the damn phone and have fun !!! Enjoy dude !!!!
AnonD-18025, 07 Dec 2011At least 8 hoursDear Sir,
How can a person like you advise to charge this phone for 8 hours, be it is for first time? Haven't you noticed that when battery is fully charged, further charging is stopped? I have checked this in both, on and off positions. I have keenly watched this for over more than 7 months of use. From 5 to 100 it takes around 3 hours in on position, it may very depending upon number of apps running. Phone should be unplugged when movement in/below battery icon is stopped.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Expert comments are welcome over this issue.
[deleted post]I agree if i play angry birds for 2 hrs followed by a card game with screen full blast etc ,for example heavy use it will last about 5-6 hours..So if you go a bit lighter like medium use expect 12-16 hrs but light use i get 2 days easy..
I have had so many smartfones its unbelievable to some folk but the sgs2 is bar far the best full touchscreen smartfone..It has 2 problems for me,
1)A bit too big
1)It would be better with slide out T9 keyboard or qwerty slide out because i am button person at heart.OR send/end real button keys with 5 way d-pad at botton where home button is would help me a lot.
AnonD-10882, 07 Dec 2011i was told to charge it for 3 hours by the shop whr i bought from now will it affect my batter... moreThis is how i have done my charging since about 2004 i think or 2003 cannot be sure..I either get lovely new mobile home and charge for 12-16hrs for first charge,,then i flatten and charge the mobile 7-10 times and then i just do what i want with it..
The other way is if you get home stick battery in mobile and its below 50% OR fairly discharged i just flatten it and then do a 12-16 hour first charge followed by 7-10 full discharge/charge cycles...
I have only ever had to buy a battery for a mobile thats completly been used to death(about 4.5-5 years old) and thats my 6630 which is about 7 years old ..I am not saying i have not bought any other batterys as i often buy extended batterys for smartfones ie Mugen..
I have never had a dud battery in about 200 mobiles i have tried over the years but hell fire their have been mobiles with poor battery life..
ash, 07 Dec 2011Dear All, I have just bought Samsung GS2..its amazing..but i am having serious issues with ... moreI have been using sms since 1998 here in UK and never had an sms problem except when their is no cellular coverage..I have never heard of a 90 character limit and wonder if its your operater at fault..I have just sent 2 text messages at 160 character limit with no problems,its one of the stranger problems ive encountered over the years..
