For all sgs2 users facing batterry issues herss the solution use nokia rs 290 approx battery modle bl 5c 1020 mah just match the positive and negative sides and atach to the phones metel latches by using the eraser as the fitting but u need to cut the eraser according to battery and phones body size fortunatly the phone has a side in it where the battery rests and do not charge the phone with nokia battery in it by stock charger , nokias battery does last long i understand that u wud be scared to do this cause its as very expensive phone but trust me i was also scared to do this but i did this cause once there was no power at my place and the phone battery was also dead and i just thought what can i do to make the phone run i took out my nokia phones battery and attached it to the metel latches of my sgs2 matching the negative and positive sides and pressed the battery and pressed the power button and eureka it worked and i have used the rubber eraser to fit the battery and the 1020 mah battery gives almost 12 hours of use including gaming ,videos, internet surfing ,music etc.and if u are more greedy u can try to use another battery with higher mah but try it on ur own risk i have tested this battery thatswhy i am posting this or buy another stock battery but again it will be expensive i guess approx 1500 inr some might consider buying 2000 mah battery but it is expensive almost 2000 inr and not easily available and another thing is u will have to charge the battery sepratly and when u are using nokia battery u will have to charge the stock battery by using the local battery charger some people might think this as problem for stock battery life as u will have to use the external charger u will get it in market easily for approx 40 to 50 rs and after some research on Google i found that it will not be a problem for the stock battery and for the nokia battery i wud advise to use the original battery charger from nokia by putting the battery in any old nokia phone u do not use if u have one cause i have one and i use it and reason i am asking u to not use the stock charger while using Nokia battery is cause it is meant to charge the stock battery which has higher mah than 1020 and important thing is u should match the batterys negative and positive sides properly other wise u may loose ur phone nice thing is u can also fit the back cover easily and this is called seste main mast in hindi ..u can ask any que on this or any suggestions on 3g data plans for sgs2 in this forum or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and my cell no is 8275143562 pune.india enjoy sgs2.

what about my home screen of android market is turned black,just the s... moreWhen I open the Android market in my SGS2, by default it will open in the "FEATURED" page with items in it like "GigBeat", "Staff Picks", "Editor's Choice", "Games" and when I scroll down there are still other stuffs. It's not black as what you said.
Sliding to the left will go to "CATEGORIES", to the right will go to "TOP FREE", "TOP NEW FREE", "TRENDING", "STAFF PICKS" and "EDITOR'S CHOICE".
My SGS2 is made in China by Samsung.
AnonD-18025, 09 Nov 2011My SGS2 says it is made in China by Samsung, and the battery is made in Korea, finished in Chi... moreYES- I agree that SGS2 has no issue regardless that where it made. Now Samsung Korea is busy for latest mobiles. History is that samsung firstly made mobile in Korea factory then shift manufacturing process to china factory due to very heavy demand.China factory has vast ability of massive production.So no matter where the phone is made. In Pakistan two mobiles are available, MADE BY SAMSUNG, MADE IN KOREA BY SAMSUNG, My understanding is mobiles "MADE BY SAMSUNG" have very minor issue of yelloish shade on left by reducing brightness to lowest on white background.Samsung is also producing SGS2 in Vaitanam Factory, There are also perfect.I do not agree the Myth that Quality Control department of Korea is more efficient than QC of china or vaitnam.

what about my home screen of android market is turned black,just the search bar on the top remains,..but the market works well,I can download and do the normal stuf so the other pages on the market works well,just the home page is black..one of my friends has Xperia Arc and he has exactly the same experience as me,..Is this some kind of a bug of android market,or has to do whith an update
Please SGII users sort me on the following:
(i) How do I change the intensity of the vibration on the fone when in silent mode and I have received a call?
(ii)How do I stop my customised notification sound if it is a song and I have locked the fone without having to unlock the fone and read the notification say a message
(iii) Change the black background?

Vino, 09 Nov 2011Does this phone supports HD videos. 1080*720p. Galaxy S dint support it. Wave s8530 supports i... moreDepends on the codec of the source. It plays quite a wide range of files(even rmvb) regardless of 720 or 1080. But it doesn't plays the recent new version of 10bit CCCP(this won't matter for now as long as you don't watch anime).
OK...im soo excited! i got my SamyS2 right now! fresh out the box.. first thing i did was put her on charge...now il just have to be patient and wait.. from what i have experienced so far is that the build quality is really really GOOD!and the screen size is just Perfection:)

gs2 fan, 09 Nov 2011Hi mate,
do you still have your iphone 4?
how does the OS compares?
Yes I still have the iPhone 4 but seldomly use it.
Even I already updated it to iOS5 it is no match to my SGS2.
What I don't like most is that iPhone 4 doesn't support web flash and the small LCD screen which makes it harder for me to read the comments here.
SGS2 loud speaker sound is also better than iPhone 4 when ringing during an incoming call.
SGS2 for me is better than iPhone 4 in most features.
Does this phone supports HD videos. 1080*720p. Galaxy S dint support it. Wave s8530 supports it. Does this phone supports that..??
gs2 fan, 09 Nov 2011thanks for the post, nice link, How did you crack your screen,!!? It must be more than just ... moreYour right it did but simply drop on the floor. A cockroach flew on my hand while I was in bed and by reflex I fling my hand to shake it off and the phone flew out my hand and slammed in the ground. The outside gorrila glass didn't break though it was the inside screen/digitizer that cracked which showa how strong the glass really is

so stick with i-rubish , generally good for those behind the technology, future is purely samsung!

But no matter where you order it from just make sure u order the screen with the housing already on to make the repair much easier. I did mine myself just follow these instructions http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1253969 good luck.
