this keyboard test that you mentioned, is it at landscape mode or portrait mode?
what colour should I be looking for, and where exactly? on the alphabets ?
I can't see any differences, but then again may be I am not looking at the right place for it!!
gs2 fan, 25 Oct 2011Also another quick question
If you look at GS2 picture on your left hand side of this page,... more1. Go to "Settings"
2. Select "Display"
3. Select "Touch key light duration"
4. Select "Always on"
You will see that it will always be visible.

If you look at GS2 picture on your left hand side of this page, at the bottom of the phone there are three buttons, center button, and left and right buttons.
On mine I can only see the center button, the WHITE back arrow (right) and the left one, are not clear, however as I touch them they function fine as they should, and everything is normal, but I can not visually see them!!! but they are there, if you know what I mean! (its just black)
is this the same on yours?
please let me know

I do not have any problems with my S2-screen!

I am in Sweden.

And that Grey problem is present in almost all the GSII's. Anyone claiming that they don't have it doesn't prove it, in fact I myself wouldn't see it unless I saw the thread in XDA.
Just check that XDA thread, you will see NOT a single user is having a perfect screen, either it's Bluish, either it's too dim, or the Blacks ain't pitch black etc etc..
But yes, this problem shouldn't be there at the first place, while given the premium class of this handset with the price it is NOT acceptable. Samsung didn't come up with anything regarding this issue, that's why I hate Sammy, they never come up with anything thinking that we are stupid. You may not level with me in this but that's the fact dude.
zo, 25 Oct 2011its on the left side of the screen ... completely reduce the brightness,, bring up the keypad ... moreOk, I have now seen the problem, not on my phone but on images sent in by other users! You should be able to replace the phone, the screen is clearly defect so it should not be a problem to get a new S2!
dear all SII user, i just bought the handset. Anyone can tell me how to log ou from the internet after use. Where can we see the online/offline status?

just one question regarding wisepilot,
lets say you choose your rout, and then in the middle you want to find the alternative route, I couldn't find any option to do that!! also live traffic doesn't appear in the main navigation screen, you need to choose another option to display it separate!!
overal, I still think is an excellent apps, how is the support like?
are you based in UK?

best of luck
itumi, 25 Oct 2011Check if your phone's network coverage always have strong signals.
I read that poor or weak... moreNope, work in industrial area of town, close to tower and always full signal.
What battery life should I get +/-
zo, 25 Oct 2011I stay in the middle east n i have the defect. no its clearly a yellow tint on the left side. ... moreScreenshot won't show the Yellow tint. You have to shoot with Camera. Besides the patch is only visible on Grey background, that also below 25% brightness. Use 'Screen Adjuster' from Market and turn Blue higher, it will make the screen little bit Bluish but the yellow tint would be less visible.
Also keep in mind there is NO perfect display out there.
I promised to do a complete review on this phone yesterday, but im saving it for today so here goes. After heavy use of the handset over the weekend this is what i found:
Camera - Class. No yellow tint. Beatuful colour in the shots, fantastic HD video capability, probably THE best camera i have owned.....and not just on a phone.
Apps - Fast to download and PLENTY of choice. All of them download fast and without any blips. No worms/bugs or anything as i have the Samsung Security App. Brilliant.
Battery - Now, loads have complained about this, but im telling you now, there are NO problems at all. I get a day and a half of HEAVY use ie. App downloading, phone calls, Skype Calls, Texting, gaming and browsing CONSTANTLY.
Design - Beautiful and light. My dad and brother (and mother actually) commented that it was HUGE and didnt like it. We went for a meal and THEY COULD NOT KEEP OFF IT!! They are iPhone 4 users. Enough said.
Call Quality - Do i need to mention it? No problems at all, crystal clear.
Overall this phone gets a 10/10 for me. No blips, faults or anything at all wrong with it. I even watched a few fights over the weekend on www.boxnationtv.co.uk and it streamed FASTER then my actual HP Computer. Wow.
Downside - Keyboard is a little small for a 4.3 inch bad boy. Still, its not a MASSIVE problem.
One word for this phone - CLASS. I guarantee i will be using this for AT LEAST the contract period, and may not even upgrade. Simple as.
