for the person saying that this phone doesnt heat up, ur fooling urself as the phone really does generates alot of heat, i know cuz i got the phone, u cant really use the for for a longer time without it heating up, old batch n new batch all same problem, tho mine doesnt have the yellow tint nor the pink spot.
Hi, upgraded to GS to GSII. The LED display oftens displays yellow orange colour.Need to switch off the phone & Restart it to resume to normal colour display.
All the other features of the phone are excellent. Another rumour is that Android is no more with Samsung. Its with HTC. So what about the software updates & service.
Having two problems. One I just picked up on last night. First is I have one of those units with a yellowish tint on the left side of the screen but only becomes apparent when display brightness dims to low brightness level & it looks like mustard stain rather than white. I bought the phone in brand new condition with original screen protector from ebay.
The Person had only broken the seal to check contents. Now I know it was genuinly new so it comes across as a defect among many hundred of other reports amongst android samsung & review sites. Not just reporting screen defects but other GOS, WIFI, hot to touch.
I only noticed the screen defect, but some people say the effect is minimal & not worth replacing. However my opinion & thought is that some people have the problem worse than others, & some people see the defect a lot better & it matters to them. To me I can't help noticing it. I don't really want a brand new phone with a defect like this.#
We pay for products which are supposed to have defects & issues & problems solved. We don't pay for faulty products we pay for working products. With this phone you pay a premium you expect it to operate without any noticeable defect which hampers performance or operation in any way. The screen plays a vital role in the UI experience & I feel this is not good enough.
So if I report this to samsung I expect a fault free phone replacement. samsung has had a lot of good light come from news sites, blogs, etc.. but they haven't owned up to solving this issue. So one thing samsung doesn't want to do is gain a poor reputation from the good & silently push it under the covers & have a big customer RMA issue. This will cause them no end of problems.
Second is not so important but I would like to know how samsung applied the bright orange mountains wallpaper picture to the photoframe widget. As soon as I took some photos with the camera or downloaded some images the photoframe widget only allows you to add pics from camera or gallery & there is no way to re add the wallpaper picture???
123vel, 28 Aug 2011i think sgs2 4g is good and cheaper also . What is their any one using the same and now is itI think so...
faris, 28 Aug 2011does galaxy s2 has a scratch resistant glass??Yes because it has a Gorilla Glass display. Gorilla Glass is an unscratchable, unshatterable material used as a protective window for your mobile phone, PMP, or laptop display. Check this site about Gorilla Glass: http://gizmodo.com/5726124/what-is-gorilla-glass
This is one of the best phone, but the major major problem is with the battery. we have to charge it twice a day. U have to take risk while traveling. since it is bigger in size very difficult to handle. some time u may not be able to pickup the phone, eg. if u r in canteen or traveling or in bus etc., needs spl attention always.
there is no profile setting option. every time u have to go to setting and change what u want.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2011Does SGS II have the swype function?Yes it does! And it matches the word in your mind when you swype on the letters. Perfect!
Raghav, 28 Aug 2011S2 heating upto 49'C and draining battery...It's not true! It will only heat up if you put it under the sun.
even this review says the same thing that the battery doesn't lasts but the good thing is they said how you can solve this problem too..
i got the phone yesterday itself the ui is lame another problem i got was that i wasn't able to type alphabet d and x,rest all were working fine..had to give to service center the same day
I think I have tried most custom firmwares from xda developers but I always return to stock xxkg3 that I downloaded from samfirmware.com after registering for free and I root using this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1103399
I can really recommend these apps: I use GO sms pro for sms and and use MailDroid Pro for e-mail and ADWLauncher EX as my launcher and Wisepilot for navigation and WeatherPro is the best weather-app and Smart Keyboard Pro the best keyboard and Opera Mobile and Dropbox and Quickoffice Pro, and Reckless Racing and Death Worm are fun games.
Chainfire3D Pro make us able to play games for Nvidia Tegra, needed plugins are here http://forum.mobilism.org/viewtopic.php?p=783548 , but to play Riptide GP and Backbreaker THD you also need these http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=14515949&postcount=4

Sean Paul, 27 Aug 2011Please people, does the SGS 2 have the copy & paste functionality Yes!!!!!!
Sean Paul, 27 Aug 2011Please people, does the SGS 2 have the copy & paste functionality yes. It even has a clipboard that shows you the last few items you've copy pasted.
Just got my sgs 2 yesterday, it's fantastic! broke my original sgs lcd and I already thought that was a good phone. Now I understand what d fuss is all about! yeah!
imran, 27 Aug 2011Dear all got this phone arround a week ago. Finaly feel HTC is the best phone to have except ... moreOn the contrary, touch keyboard of SGS2 is more user friendly because of the swype and predictive features unlike iPhone 4 which doesn't have both.
