is the Super amoled plus display better than the iphone 4's display? Does anyone know how ppi works? (I've notice a higher ppi on the iphone 4 and SGS2 HD LTE than SGS2) so i'm wondering if the low ppi on the SGS2 affects the screen.
From Techradar about battrylife on S2:
"It's usually pretty easy to state battery life on a smartphone – 90% of them will last a day, perhaps a day and bit. Either way, it's a nightly charge if you don't want to end up with a dead device.
With the Galaxy S2, it's a little more difficult to state the battery life, as we were so busy playing with it all the time we never could get an accurate read out. However, we eventually stood firm in the face of temptation, and it's good (ish) news.
The not-so-good news is that if you're playing with the Samsung Galaxy S2 all the time as we were (and we mean listening to Spotify, browsing the web via 3G, watching videos frequently, whacking out some maps here and there with GPS, reading books, using Push email and playing games) then you'll be lucky to get 10 hours of battery out of it – and that's with the enhanced 1650mAh battery wedged on board.
Then again, the fact that using a device a lot makes the battery run down quickly shouldn't be a shock to any human being – it just seems that a lot of people expect a phone to be able to do it all and then fight a Duracell bunny at midnight too.
In real terms (ie four months in when you're used to having all the functions and don't feel the need to play with the S2 every seven seconds) you'll be laughing, as we actually managed to eke out nearly two days' use, even with accounts syncing in the background.
Either it's the dual cores or Android 2.3.3 making things more efficient, but if you're away for the weekend and forget your charger, you can definitely use the Galaxy S2 as a calling and texting tool the entire time you're away without worry.
However, we'd estimate that you'll probably still be charging every day under normal conditions. We just had to say it – a review doesn't feel right without it. But at least the S2 won't run down in six hours regularly."

i have galaxy s2 and it's very good.
back panel is also good(scratch resistant).
Does anyone knows how to improve the wifi reception signal? 2.3.4 firmware has some improvement wifi related?
It is quite poor for S2 compared with other device. I had a X10 which had a much better wifi reception in the same conditions.

Where is it now? I don't know!
Ganesh, 27 Sep 2011I just read, saying the back panel is not so good. Can anyone tell me if its true?The back panel is fine. It feels a little flimsy when it is off the unit and you sort of feel like you could break it when you first get the phone, when you are taking it on and off. But with a little experience, you get to understand how to take the panel on and off and there is no chance you can break it. When it is on it feels just as solid as any other phone I've had.
[deleted post]no web site in net. probably removed. web site check says that only 22 days old?
My S2 is now very good!
I installed stock I9100XXKG3 and then rooted using CF-Root-SGS2_XX_OXA_KG3-v4.1-CWM4.zip and then I added Multilanguage CallRec Dialer and then I installed stock XXKI3-modem and finally I installed stock I9100XXKI3-kernel.
My S2 have never been better than this!
