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.

GSII fan, 24 Jul 2011Hi guys i'm about to get my sgs2 but i want to know if its possible to make skype or y'messeng... moreYes you can use Skype in sgs2. You need to get the version off the gsmarena blog that gives you the cracked version. It was on there a couple of weeks ago. It works perfectly over 3g and wi fi. You could also try samfirmware as I also saw the cracked version on there site.
AnonD-14681, 23 Jul 2011can any user tell plzzzzz.. does the download continues when the screen is locked in opera ... moreYes. The download continues even after the phone is locked. The best for downloading is UC Browser/Ibibo as it continues downloading from the point from where your download failed earlier..
