I wish they launch "extra battery pack", kinda like Sony PSP's , with heavy use it barely last 8 hours (gaming & online)
Also the mobile get really hot when running 3D / CPU intensive game (eg. Tower Defence).
The batery life is not like im expected.. Need charge 2 times per day even with minimal usage of basic application

Shadowgun and Galaxy on fire 2 and Riptide GP and Samurai 2 all play perfectly on my S2!
And Need for speed Shift and Fifa 10 can also be played if they are bought from www.eamobile.com!
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2011Great phone, battery doesn't last close to what they said and I have a 6.11W/h battery....The phone is great feature wise..but battery life is very poor. Hardly gives me 6hrs of working ability. Inspite of all the battery saving measures, SII never seems to cross 7hrs mark. It behaves like a glorified land phone.
I am greatly disappointed about the battery life, so much so that I suggest people to refrain from buying this otherwise superb gadget unless Samsung addresses the battery issue, since unless there is no power all the juices are sucked up.
is it true regarding about problems in gaming? read a lot that this phone is not great for gaming? or that is just trying to bring down a beast?
i have samsung galaxy s 2 for 4 months i dont update its firmware 2.3.3 i want to.update my phone plzzzzzz tell me

Peterbest, 12 Nov 2011Can the S2 play .mkv video files without a third party app? Yes sir, without a glitch, even 1080P's.
Peterbest, 12 Nov 2011Can the S2 play .mkv video files without a third party app? Yes, it can play 1080p mkv videos by default. :-)
Steve J, 12 Nov 2011When will Samsung build a phone with a hardware QWERTY that has similar features to SGSII as s... moreThe answer is never.
Hardware keyboards were acceptable a few years ago when the touch input was slow and inaccurate.
Today, Why would you want a hardware keyboard when you have got a huge screen and great accurate software keyboards like SwiftKey or swype? That too in a thin light body like the sgs2, the addition of a hardware keypad will just increase costs, reduce reliability and give you a thicker phone.
Oh, this response was typed really fast using SwiftKey. The built in swype is also good but I prefer SwiftKey. :-)
