Shirmayne, 14 Jul 2011Hi~ I'm still thinking whether want to buy Samsung galaxy S 2 NOW~
as the MAXIS is offering a... moreRight i had this for a while but found it too big for me but found battery life good..
After years of famous mobile battery testing 2 things are BIG battery killers,
1) The screen brightness..
I had an Nokia e72 and with my usage got 5 days with screen at 50% brightness...I then after a few months thought why not go full brightness,,this brought my battery life down to just over 2 days with same usage..I then started using 3g and this brought it down to 29hrs..
So whatever model ive used in the past if you can knock it down to 3g when NOT needed and put brightness down to as low as is possible for youthat best for battery...
I do find WI-FI not as battery killing as 3g and bluetooth left switched on does not have much of a battery impact.
NOw the next big thing is how much you use your phone,,if you are a heavy user then you will have to compromise something OR buy 2 batterys OR buy extended battery..
Thats best advice i can give,,people want thin fones and dont want aerials sticking out like a proper mobile phone used to be so compromises have to be made..If the sgs2 was 2 mm thicker with say 2200mA battery and had a pull out aerial it would be superb battery but no-one would really buy it..That pull out aerial would increase signal strength and increase battery...Folk cannot have it always ATM.
can somebody help me by telling how I can see my videos on my LED by MHL(HDTV Adapter).I have both but I am unable to watch videos on my HDTV.

Hi~ I'm still thinking whether want to buy Samsung galaxy S 2 NOW~
as the MAXIS is offering a package which valid till 22 JULY 2011~
But there are quite many people comment about the phone battery, which has short life span, can't stand many hours in a day, may i know whether is true from those Samsung galaxy S 2 users~
robin, 14 Jul 2011is it possible to connect galaxy s2 via pc internet. hlp me guys how?..Not sure what you're looking to do. If you want to use the S2 as a modem to connect your PC to the Internet you can go to
Settings/wireless and network/tethering and portable hotspot.
after the hype is over with the phone today my battery lasted 2 full days under average use !
just hold menu button for 4sec to go to task manager...then clear all program running and memory
thats what i always did and sometimes i take out the battery then put it back

Have you installed the Arabic ROM for your device? ... moreActually I didn't try the Arabic ROM yet, I don't know how.. as i said before, I've never used any thing but Nokia phones, so I'll have to read about installing other ROMs...
thanks by the way for your help...
Best specs but with same specs and only changes of display size 3.5'' like samsung galaxy ace
I've only had mine for 3 days now... but absolutely loving it! Awesome display. Runs apps fast and smooth. Swype typing is weird at first bit great once you get used to it. Fantastic phone in general!

The App I got clears out the whole phone using a Quick Boost Button. I press it every 3 hours and it clears bout 15 opened apps and 20MB of Data (But does Vary). It'll be worth getting and its Free
