Ko, 06 Nov 2011Suck!ther's no landscape mode.and a single led flash.The sweet thing about android is that you can use a launcher than can do landscape mode, I use adwlauncher with ics theme which can do landscape in the home screens but what I like most about it is that you can hide the status bar at the top and have a full screen home page. The single LED in the galaxy sii is brighter than other single led phones I know so stop complaining
Antanas, 06 Nov 2011Hey folks. Like many of you I was concerned about the battery life. I currently have Galaxy 5 ... moreStand-by is when you only turn on the phone waiting for a phonecall or sms, but with no background-sync of e-mail... If you use your phone for surfing and playing games then no phone last more than a few hours, not even any old Nokia, and even Laptop-computers last only a very few hours even though they have gigantic battery. My old N97 mini have a lot worse batterylife than S2, but the reason why batterylife on these old outdated Nokia-phones look as if they have good batterylife is only because they are used a lot less than modern Android-phones are used! My N97 mini is so bad that surfing on the Internet is a slow pain and I simply do not use it for surfing, and it is the same thing with playing games it is so bad and boring that I never do it, but because I never really use it for anything else than phonecalls and sms the batterylife appear "good". Try to not use your S2 for anything else than phonecalls and sms, and then you will get just as "good" batterylife as on any old Nokia, but S2 is so fun to use that it is really hard not using it.
Letsan, 05 Nov 2011There's another way, this phone supports HDMI out using an adapter.Yes my friend I know,but the question was how to connect the device whith Tv using the wireless..

Some of recent androids from manufactures(HTC) are still on 14.4Mbps, while SGS2 is 21Mbps, which means SGS2 is faster then them by 32%.
its a coolest phone that i have ever use in ma lyf...still i want to continue with ma galaxy s2.....Samsung had a create a little world in this handset..
Hey folks. Like many of you I was concerned about the battery life. I currently have Galaxy 5 which lasts only a day or two with little use and it's the most annoying thing. Now you are reporting from a few hours to as "much" as 18 hours with light use? It's not even two days, and in the specs it says 710 hours, which is almost a month. How does that relate to the two days actual maximum standby time? Makes no sense AT ALL. Stupidity to say the least.
gs2 fan, 05 Nov 2011thanks mate. what i mean is auto fit when you zoom in to the text. all other browsers you have... moreI just discover now that if you double tap on the web page using Boat browser it will auto fit the text just like what you are describing.
tohid harighi, 05 Nov 2011GPRS : class 12?
that's rubisht.nokia hava low prossesor but have good parfamace whith out symbianGPRS and Symbian are pre-historic.
Most of the networks are using 3G now and SGS2 has the fastest 3G @ 21 mbps.
Symbian is nothing compare to Android.
You are still living in the past with your GPRS and Symbian.
Wake up man!
Hey everyone..i just discovered that the samsung galaxy s2 records video in 3gp format instead of mp4 as stated in the review.Is the review wrong or did gsmarena got a special test unit?
this device really rocks, I have stopped using my laptop for the past 4 months in substitute for this phone because it does everything on the go, get it now..lol
This is really a nice smartphone from Samsung and compare to iPhone 4S this is much stronger in terms of its material.
You can check the drop test here:
And witness how Samsung GS II survived. :)
gs2 fan, 05 Nov 2011how do i check of it has DNLA?
i have win 7 and my laptop only 2 years old
Just install Samsung AllShare apps to your win 7 laptop.
I have Dell laptop and MSI netbook, I don't know if they have DLNA but I install Samsung AllShare apps to both and it is working i.e they are communicating with my SGS2.
They also connect with each other using Samsung AllShare via WiFi.

LMFAO SGS2 back on top for daily interest hits. Like I said 3 months ago, every time a new phone comes out, the interest rate falls for a few weeks & then its straight back to All Eyes On The SGS2 Again, & like i said 3 months ago - I LOVE IT lol
BTW you will only appreciate my comment if you own this beast of a phone & actually know how to use it to its full potential. Merry Christmas.
