Hari, 07 Aug 2011Hi Bought this phone yesterday..
1. My firmware is xwkf3.Is this the latest fir... more2. How to control the programs in the background..Several programs and processes are running in background and reducing the battery drastically..
The latest is Android 2.3.4 (which has better battery management, among other things). We have to upgrade it. I think I have to take it to the service centre for it. We can do it through the phone itself. I don't if I should do it that way.
To control background programs, like closing, I created a shortcut for 'Task Manager' on the Home page. Just click it and you can see what are the running applications. That's what I do. I have also bought it recently, Just 2 weeks ago.
hey guys, i have to say that this phone is amazing phone. I have used it. The 8MP camera is great with led flasher. And the display is amazing
i taken this mobile one weak back i love this mobile itr better then apple 4g
To those complaining:
Heating - It will get warm not hot when playing games. Every mobile gets warm when game playing. It just that some are thick (i.e iphone4 - surrounded by front and back glass) so you wont feel the heat. The new update will solve it like some other poster said. If it gets hot that you can't hold it, then return it as its a hardware problem like I did. They gave me another model under my warranty and that solved the heat. It still gets warm but not hot.
Battery - Its a mini lap top so stop moanign about the battery. Every smart phone has a battery that lasts a few hours. SG2 is great compared to others. The battery supplied is a 1650mah. Just go to google search, ebay or amazon and buy a 3500 mah extended battery (£10)like I did which will last 3 days until it needs charging again.
Meanwhile until you get it, switch of WIFI, Bluetooth, animation wallpaper/screensavers and especially DATA when not in use to preserve the 1650 mah battery supplied with the phone.

Ghiath, 07 Aug 2011hi plz just one answer for one question ? galaxy s2 or iphone 4 who shuld i buy ????!!!!! pl... moreBoth are good but since this has good camera, and wider screen so better. I have both since this is new go for this. Apple apps store is very strong.
I had this phone since last night I must say design is great. Resolution is remarkable battery backup is commendable can be used for more than a day with good usage. Only bad part is the back of phone plastic of very bad quality. But this phone is matchless. Best android ever seen. Highly recommended phone.
the galaxy s2 is currently best phone in the market. iphone can't match performance.
battery backup is good on this powerhouse, If you are having problems check your settings as most probably something is running in the backround. I have heard that some widgets run auto update that drains the battery real fast. I get nearly 2 days out of the battery with moderate to heavy use.

AnonD-5465, 06 Aug 2011Sir , its a mini laptop in your hands !! it do all kind of stuff u can imagine !I appreciate your progressive mind.
I also say the same (that it is a mini laptop) to my friends and colleagues, though with more than 50% compromises.The price we have to pay for S2, sensation etc, which is more than for a laptop, is for miniaturization. It is a phone too. It is in our pocket, available 24hrs. With a good camera (no comparison with a dedicated digital camera).Niggles are many, but I still enjoy it. It is a pity it still doesn't display phone numbers along with names. No dedicated camera button is another one. It could have been perfect, or at least better. There is no e-mail attachments via gmail or rediffmail, but only via messaging, which incur additional charges. Though pdf reading is OK, (I have to read a lot of pdf books) I cannot continue reading from the last session. Minimising will be without any guarantee. No vob file playing. A netbook will do all these things with 2/3 of its price. I am not complaining. If we have a lot of dough...I am not saying that I am not happy with it, far from it. But progressive minds are somewhat perfectionistic, i think.
