Battery life of this phone "sucks" to say the least,so much that it gives an overall "dumb" image to samsung in making a phone with amazing specs but without a battery to support it.To those who have said battery life of s2 fares better than laptops,please understand that a "phone" is not brought to be used like a laptop & vice versa.Those who said they get 2 days of battery life from s2 are probably lying,since i am yet to see a galaxy s2 user that gets 18 hours of normal use after a full charging.To samsung, please make sure you do the "abc" correctly before executing xyz.

3G-connection is perfect on S2, but if you have a bad network-provider then not even S2 can give you high speed or reliable connection!

Tried it in my desk top and it says something like your card is corrupted.
Solution is to buy new.
I bought new and it is working good now.
i also want to say that i don't believe for a second of those people claiming they get one and half day out of their gs2 one Heavey use!!!!!!!!. that is impossible. even a moderate use doesn't give you that!!!!!!!!!!.
the rest of this phone is just amaizing. 3G is slow i have load of problem streaming stuff via 3G, surely you don't have internet access everywhere.
gs2 fan, 30 Oct 2011hi, hope you are well. thanks for all your inputs. so is there a app in the market to improve ... moreI don't know any apps to improve the battery life.
My SGS2 battery charge last only 12 hours or less I think.
But no problem for me because when I go to sleep I plug it in a wall charger while the radio streaming plays. And when I reach my office in the morning I plug it via USB charger to my desk top while playing my favorite playlist of music streaming.
My 3G connection is enough to download the video and music streaming during network packet data connection while on the go, i.e. no buffering whatsoever.

That is what I'm telling about others who always complain.
We need to maximize the full potential of this phone to see its beauty by using available apps from the Android market.
We are not small kids to be spoon feed by Samsung, by putting all the apps we needed in this unit to satisfy everyone.
That's why there is Android market and other sites providing apps to customize this phone according to what we need or not.

But I have been using this phone for three months already and the sound is clearer and louder than my previous Nokia phones (a total of 10 Nokia phones passed in my hands). I also used SonyEricsson phones.
Wherein this is only my second Samsung phone. I don't have problem with it and didn't miss any call.
At first yes I found the volume is low, then I played with the equalizer settings and get a loud and clear volume.
Now I am enjoying it to the fullest!
I suggest in a noisy country, better use a headset rather than the loud speaker to avoid contributing to noise polution. Love nature, refrain from noise polution...
AnonD-20960, 30 Oct 2011now my sweet heart SGS2 with android 2.3.5 . . its good . . not so many improved features . . ... moreSuggesting APPS here will mess this page. Search Market for that. Good or useful apps will be said of course.
Go Launcher is great. Superb customistaion options, that's free, I also am using Go Switch, Go Clock widget, love them. It's actually hard to go back to TW after using Go.
1- I also love Widget Locker lockscreen. The New version 2.2.1 is brilliant. It's paid app though, still VFM.
2- For Sports you could use Score Mobile.
3- Advanced users, who knows how to UV CPU should use 'Set CPU'. It's a fantastic app.
4- Better Battery Stats is a must to see which processes and apps are causing Wakelocks and draining juice.
5- Root Explorer is also a must.
6- Same goes for Titanium Backup Pro, to freeze, Uninstall or take a full backup of your device.
7- Tapatalk. A common forum community app, everyone knows it I guess.
The list will go on and on...
