I know you refering to some phone example nokia the phone is off but the alarm still work. This more to person prefer, some prefer when it off mean totally shut down, some perfer the phone shut down at night but the alarm still work. For S2 case you just turn the phone to flight mode it save the battery and alarm still work

M. S, 15 Nov 2011N9 is far better. Look on youtube. The browser is faster and also the mecanic with the swipes ... moreWhen you longpress the home-key on S2 you can see the recent 6 used apps/games but if you press the "task-manager button" below these recent 6 apps then you see all apps/games that are open in the background! I now have 30 apps and games open in the background plus writing this comment using Opera-mobile, and there is no lag at all!
Hibiki, 14 Nov 2011Hi, i bought my Samsung Galaxy S II in London but it is locked in a network. I'm in philippine... moreWhy don't you try to go to Samsung Philippines, they know better.
Not here, this is not the place...
M. S, 15 Nov 2011N9 is far better. Look on youtube. The browser is faster and also the mecanic with the swipes ... moreThose youtube N9 multitasking videos do not impress at all because having a lot of paused apps in the background is not real multitasking and having a lot of, every, open browser webpage show as an open app in the list of of open apps in the background is definetly not multitasking at all and only makes the list of open apps too long!
Ice Cream Sandwich have a similar list showing all open apps, but not every open browser-webpage!
sam, 14 Nov 2011is this phone better than nokia n9 in terms of multitasking? Dear frnds, I m anxiously waiting... moreS2 is much better at real multitasking!
Swipe on N9 is actully a problem because users often accidentaly move to the homescreen, and N9 can still only use "repacked" Android-apps, and N9 still do not have any software for the FM-radio hardware, and N9 have really sharp uncomfortable painful corners, and N9 can not even handle Flash 11 in the browser, and N9 is a lot more expensive than S2...!

'Go for N9 that also has the beauty.
is this phone better than nokia n9 in terms of multitasking? Dear frnds, I m anxiously waiting 4 ur replies. I love multitasking. I want much more multitasking.
I have known that the Android Market is not available in all the regions in the world even in my country too. So is there any alternative way to get those apps on my SGSII?
PLEASE HELP ME GUYS.
all of you are blind without Samsung, Nokia.... etc.
because in this today's market one another company is above all these brand. this company thinks totally different. this brand's phone is simple, smoooth and faster. it is not a dustbin of unnecessary software. software is a things which is changeable and upgradable , the main thing is original hardware which gives you ever lasting performance for lifetime.
Sony-Ericsson is not a phone , it's a gagged.
one time you bring it , then you never mind that your phone is older than new phones.

Aries34, 14 Nov 2011Sorry dude, I disagree with you. No phone has true multitasking not even my sgs2 Except nokia ... moreRight now I am writing this message/comment using Opera Mobile and at the same time I now am listening to the sounds from a movie that I am streaming, Adobe Flash, playing in the background using Miren Browser on the webpage justin.tv and I am also listening to pop-radio streaming from Grooveshark in my Dolphin browser mini and the sounds from the pop-radio and the movie are mixed and both playing at the same time in the background and I have a word-document open in the background, this is true real multitasking on Android! :)
I am quite impress with the spec and also I just watched a video of this a while ago in here: http://www.technofuse.com/2011/10/iphone-4s-and-samsung-galaxy-s-ii-drop.html
And it shows how strong it is in a drop test compare to iPhone 4S. :)
