Probably the best phone of 2011.No issues with screen, battery life or heating issues. Those who r complaining about battery life and heating issues, just turn off all the applications from task manager and clear memory. And you have the issue resolved.
hey can anyone help me out with this. i was gaming since quite some time on the fone. n when i started whatsapp the screen went really dim.. like i had to strain my eyes to read. less than 10% also and a msg popped up saying 'screen filter enabled' something like tht. now i cudnt find any option of screen filter in settings. i restarted the fone, reisntalled the app but nuthing happened. and the brightness automatically reduced to prevent overheating.the problem was just with watsapp. the screen just went to normal on its own a couple of mins ago. was this problem due to over heating of the battery?? is there any defect in the fone

The heating problem is not that severe. Any phone when used for long and heavy use of processor warms up because of processor usage. Even your laptop/desktop heats up when playing heavy loaded games/processing. This is normal behavior.
However, if your phone heats to an extent that it becomes uncomfortable to hold, then it is a worry.
2.3.4 claims to have resolve the heating issue by optimizing the use of processor and also increases the battery life. However, the difference is just nominal. Lets say if your phone used to get warm upto 35 deg C then probably with 2.3.4 it will warm upto 30. Thats it. But still, 2.3.4 is a much better and a reliable OS and obviously superceeds the predecessor.
RaffRene, 14 Sep 2011Please clarify this for me: dual-core means there are two CPUs, right? are they both clocked a... moreNot so. Dual core processor will increase performance by 30% to 70%. This is advantageous for multi-processing and gaming. It is power efficient. The draw back is increase of operating temperature. This is also good for video processing. But if you are using the phone for ordinary browsing or office processing like word and excel, there is minimal improvement. Hope this will help.
Hi...Samsung GS2 users...i would like to enquire whats the Best Brand to buy for MicroSD 16Gb Class 10 that suits our GS2...i have bought Trancends MicroSD 16Gb Class10...but after a few month usage...its corrupted and my GS2 can't even read it anymore even after formatting it....
Your kind advise will be highly appreciated...THANKS in advance
RaffRene, 14 Sep 2011Please clarify this for me: dual-core means there are two CPUs, right? are they both clocked a... moreDon't mix it up.
Dual core with 1.2GHz doesn't mean you have to sum it up. That is not the way.
Its been 3 months since i got this monster, and im loving each moment of it, Got one question to all you SG2 owners, does this phone heats up? (during playing 3d games or using browser for 10 to 15 mins) does any one else also has the same issues? or is this the normal behavior?
If its the battery it should heat up during charging, but its not battery, looks like processor heats up.
4got to mention got 2.3.3 running on it.
will 2.3.4 or next versions solve this?
Please clarify this for me: dual-core means there are two CPUs, right? are they both clocked at 1.2 GHZ, so it sums up to a total of 2.4GHZ in Galaxy S II? or is it 2 CPUs each clocked at 0.6GHZ? or something completely different?
Once again Samsung i9100 Galaxy S II is in number 1 slot of the current rankings by GSM Arena.
I'm a proud owner of this wonderful phone.
Somebody please help me out my galaxy S II wifi has stopped working anybody has any suggestions!!!!
Excellent phone, very very pleased with it and I would definitely say the best on the market at the moment. The main downsides that I have found after using it for 6 months are that it doesnt seem to pick up reception as strongly in the same areas as my previous iphone 3gs did, and also the battery life is not the best. The 610 hours (25 days) of battery life quoted above...yeah...maybe in flight mode if you dont use it at all, but under normal usage it just about lasts me a day.
thnkx for the reply guys... might as well set the email as passwrd protected if i cant log out..
plz can anyone tell me how to update the sg2 to 2.3.4? ur prompt answer is appreciated?

There is no other option to signout of your google account. However, you may choose NOT to synchonize your gmail on the phone.

[deleted post]Delete your Gmail account just as simple as that.
It is easy to add it if you want to use it again.
Maybe you've got a deffective headphone.
I use a standard 3.5mm jack headphone and its working well.
I even connect it via bluetooth stereo headset of SonyEricsson and still working saticfactory.
