hmm...is there a app which kills the apps automatically...coz its frustrating to do it manually everytime....at the end it consumes battery even if its nt used and runns in the background
only few things which are needed to make it a perfect phone- metallic body with better design, atleast stereo sound recording in HD video recording, better battery(even 2500 mAh battery would be incapable of feeding this beast)
by the way could any one name any such smartphone with this many functionalities which has satisfactory battery back-up

Active applications are shown in Task Manager but not active services.... for example, yahoo messenger or GTalk, these are open services but not shown in task manager. Task killer would close these two and would show as two apps killed. Those are actually services .. no harm.
A great news about SG2 . 3 million S2 sold last 3 weeks . Total 6 millian in last 75 days . Woh . . .
gww, 25 Jul 2011brynn.. so do u think for my csae my set is a faulty set?Would not think so but mine gets hot too but nothing that i would worry about..If you are concerned tho its best to take it back to where you bought it from..
brynn, 25 Jul 2011This is what i would do ,charge your fone and leave it for 10 hrs with nothing doing and chec... morem sure the battry s gonna b a prob even if he says its working fine,,,,,another things eats me up s,,,weneva i go in the task manager it shows 0 app running,,bt when i go and clear the memoery..it says 16 app closed....checked it and it showed GPS,samsung Hub n so many apps running...how do i close all teh apps..i dont evn use gps coz of the battery .....
v, 25 Jul 2011just called up the service center,,,nt to my surprise they say the phone is perfect...he said ... moreThis is what i would do ,charge your fone and leave it for 10 hrs with nothing doing and check to see if level has dropped..So just leave a factory reset sgs2 just switched on and lying their..If it looks ok then we can compare sgs2 directly by doing this...
I will factory reset/wipe my sgs2 and put only say a couple of hundred mp3s on sgs2 and set it off playing looped mp3 thru headfones at 100% volume..Its the only way because we are both just playing mp3s and leave it in airplane mode with wifi off and bluetooth off ..We may live at different distances from base staions so we would get different result so airplane mode is only way to get equal results..
There is another way and its with all aerials off we can play neocore continually at full screen briteness and volume till battery dead..If you have another way i am up for it.
Oh the kernel i am using is in that link below to darky ROM.
I get 3132 on quadrant score..

imm, 25 Jul 2011Dears...stucked b/w buying Samsung GSII/Xperia Arc or HTC Sensation....I am not that much upda... moreThe i-phone is complete opposite of any other smartfone and would never buy one its a closed O/S with so many limitations..I would rather have a kidney infection than put up with useles ifone.
The other smartfones you mention are still very high in spec but i find HTC to have poor cameras/microphones and speakers but these may not be important to you..I like the Arc but its just behind in technology but still a capable fone and brilliant display for video watching..
So bad things are ARc is behind and HTC have poor harware components and sgs2 is plasticky but solid build quality..
Its up to you but say the SGS2 was not available yet and it was my decision and my money i would buy Arc.
Dears...stucked b/w buying Samsung GSII/Xperia Arc or HTC Sensation....I am not that much updated with technology and currently using nokia e72. Pls. suggest shall i wait till iphone 5 comes in the market? i am hearing rumors that it will be launched in sept 2011.
Which one of these supports the following:
HDMI port? I guess only Xperia arc has it built-in?
Can i do video conference via Skype on these phones?

I am using france 24 (part of SPB tv) in 3g mode keeping up with news it does french ,english and arabic language and fone is warm..I have this to say;;
Most laptops have a big heatsink and whopping big fan to keep them cool yet sgs2 is running barebones,i think it copes well,6 millions users at last count and still stores sell out.

Hi all, i bought this phone today. I have activated Airtel GPRS 2GB plan. The problem which i face now is, i am not able to browse any web page through the S2 mobile browser, im getting the error message WEb PAGE NOT AVAILABLE.
But i am able to access Android market and download applications through my gprs.
While installing the GPRS settings i got the message like installation not complete.
But in Network -> Access points -> the GPRS settings are configured.
Can any one help me please?
