I've said it before and I'll say it again, the Samsung Galaxy S II is a fantastic phone. I read a review of the SGS2 and the guy said that even i-phone fans were very impressed, of course they would be as it's better than the i-phone, the android apps are excellent and the phone is fast, very fast, who cares if the battery is not excellent, I can charge it where I work, in the car, at home. Buy it, you won't regret it!!

People around you will never know your phone's activity unless they stalk on you. Trash attitude!
The bAttery life is ok if you turn off internet connection wben you don't use it. Awesome phane in general tbh.

Only stupid people criticise when somebody changes his phone battery. Nobody will pay attention to you if you change your phone battery, who cares and what is it to them. How should they know that its only a couple of hours since it was fully charged? Only people who have nothing to do in their lives will watch other people's minor activity every single second. What a shame! Anyhow, battery life depends on the phone's activity.

Anonymous, 31 Aug 2011i do agree with you.. i am planning to buy an S2 soon... :)
as replacement for my n8.
i must... moreNo don't take me wrong I said galaxy s2 is better than iPhone but never said iPhone is bad.
Interms of app quality and games none can beat iPhone but unfortunately iPhone doesn't have basic features like removable battery ,sd slot or flash for a high price phone.
I have bro who uses iPhone 4 where apps really shine very well but galaxy s2 has more user friendly hardware. I prefer iPhone 5 too only if u don't care about those restrictions I mentioned above but some things like Bluetooth transfers or widgets which u never get on iPhone anytime soon.
So just for apps or games iPhone is dam good but for remaining things apart from games galaxy s2 beats iPhone everytime because I have seen both phones Side by side.
To be honest iPhone 3GS = iPhone 4 = same performance but iPhone 5 surely packs good improvement in performance. But it's never gonna have sd slot and widgets.
And iPhone also beats everything out of N8 every place because processor is too bad for n8. Even 3GS can beat N8 very easy with same 256 mb RAM.And even resale value of one-year-old iPhone4 is very high compared to galaxy s1. I saw all 3 phones and giving my opinion. Respect other phones too but don't blame other phones without using.
I use galaxy s2 and also respect n8 and iPhone 4 because apple or nokia are not my enemies. I am a consumer who try to buy best possible phone in Market.
iPhone 4 is a very great phone only if u bear those restrictions. But galaxy s2 is even better than iPhone like large screen , good android OS + touchwiz , good performance and good reasonable price.
I love my S2 sooo much. The only downer is the hom button. It's a little wobbly. Grrr...

To give your battery much more life..log-out the latitude apps..turn off your wifi..turn off gps..turn off background data at sync settings..lower you brightness settings.. turn off automatic brightness..it will give more juice on your battery life..

On average it will last me about half a day. Usual usage is a few phone calls and sms, occasional use of internet and hardly any playing of games. The trouble is I like the phone so much and have to put up with this problem. Problem solved by having a spare battery in hand.
