After going through reviews of 48 pages in GSMarena, for almost 2 days, I am feeling like that initial 2-3 days you may feel heat by using the phone for very less time, but the reviews by the users who hold this phone for more than 2-3weeks, they don't complain about the heating or battery issue,and any device with a battery and usage of browsing, playing HD games, watching movies, will not last longer than 5-6 hrs, GSMArena/Samsung tells that we get talktime of 18.2hrs if we use the phone only in 2G mode only for calls,they don't say that you will get the same amount of talktime if you are using along with all the apps running behind, and you do immense browsing, play games, watch or shoot HD videos.
And also with the update of 2.3.4, people are commenting that heating issue is resolved, also battery is better.
Am going to get this phone my Tuesday.
From last 1 yr I am liking this phone with the specs. Samsung/Android can't make such small mistakes.
So don't worry and go ahead with this phone.
Battery n heating issues will be resolved with in 2-3 weeks time of usage.
Regading 2.3.4 update, its not officially launched in India, but will be launched soon.

Samsung Galaxy S II plus undoubtedly the best gadget within the tablet and phone range, as of the moment. My samsung galaxy s II absolutely replaced my 17" laptop while i'm on the go. I can connect to free wi-fi and browse the web almost without restrictions and almost the same to my laptop, thanks to dolphin browser. also using my SGSII i was able to watch the latest international movies, thanks to its widest range of video codecs. you can also saved almost every videos in the web using the native android downloader. I'm very satisfied with my samsung galaxy s II.

Samsung and Google should officially merged to create the "best mobile ecosystem" samsung for the best hardware and android as the best os. A healthier synergy of mobile technology.

i just compared my SGS2 screen with my boss iphone4 both using 100% brightness. honestly the screen is better iphone4, so much detail n bright on iphone4 (i know more pixel on iphone4 rather than SGS2).
And i just realize that my SGS2 screen have a small scratch, i try to wipe it but no luck. so i really disappointed with this gorilla glass can't protect my SGS2 screen, even i never put SGS2 with a hard thing such as key ,etc (honestly i never put my SGS2 with other thing in my pocket n never drop it, i just own this SGS2 for 2,5weeks ). i think i will buy screen protector for my SGS2 to prevent more scratch to the screen.

Ruthie, 12 Aug 2011I'm hearing that the Galaxys2 overheats and has a yellowish tint on the screen. Has anyone exp... moreI'm not sure if I'll call it overheating, but, mine surely does get very warm when I use it on games/videos. I also noticed that its LED flash light quickly gets hot.
I consider myself one of the lucky ones to have not experienced the yellow tint a few users have reported.
pcesar, 11 Aug 2011guys, wich do u think is better, galaxy sII or sony ericson arc????
please, tell your opinion..Based on specs alone, SGS2 undoubtedly beats the Arc. Both of them are sexy phones with the Arc more on the outgoing side and the SGS2 on the minimalist side.
I'm a proud owner of SGS2 and I gotta say, this phone's a beast. It's quite sexy, though, sadly, I have to dress it up in bulky cases because I'm afraid it'll get scratched easily because of it's plastic body.
