Wanted to share my battery experience with my 9 days old SGSII.
Now (after the 4th full charge), It's showing 48% with 1 day and 9 hours! This along with my usual daily usage. The same usage that lasted only 20 hours of juice at the beginning.
What did I do?
1. Disabled "Use packet Data" from Mobile network settings.
2. Disabled 3G and working only on EDGE (may not be suitable for everyone, by the 3G coverage and speed are is not a lot better than EDGE in my area).
3. Having WiFi always on .. Being actually connected ~10 hours a day. Keep in mind, I'm saying "connected" not "using" .. Usage is just for couple of hours.
4. Disabled GPS .. Enable it only when needed (just few minutes every now and then).
5. Installed Juice Defender and Advanced Task Killer.
6. Screen Brightness set to "Auto".
I know that some of you will say that I might not be making full use of the phone this way .. I thought so myself at the beginning and was just doing so for an experiment.. But then I discovered that I really enjoy every bit of it while having a full two days on a single recharge.
I only enable a service whenever I need it .. It may sound like a tedious thing to do, but for the extra juice, I guess it's reasonable.
Have fun all SGSII fellows.
Hey fellow Muslims .. Any recommendations for a good "Prayer Times" app with a good Qibla direction that uses the phone built-in compass rather than the location services?
I always need it when I have now GPS lock nor a data connection.
Thanking you in advance!
A neat trick by sammy...holding n sliding ur finger across the notification bar results in increment/decrement of brightness...all together ths fone is loaded with amazing bunch of features...and its awesomeness simply cant b compared...an excellent package...amazing fone wid exceptional user experience...
the new firmware KF3..updated today.. have removed message skins...the only change i hve found till now..
Excellent phone, a major difference between the Galaxy S I (IS9000)vs this phone, extremely fast.

Until Galaxy 2 was released I Phone 4 was the leader. As of date, Galaxy 2 beats I Phone 4 hands down in all areas. May be, Iphone 4 S or IPhone 5, however they elect to name it, would give Galaxy a run for it's money.
Please compare Galaxy 2 against HTC Sensation before you take the leap. Personally, I prefer Galaxy. Having said that, I should admit I Phone 4 is a beauty.
its 100percent better than iphone 4.display is gorgeous and it run android which is best on mobile phones now...powerful phone from samsung
dis is da bst phne i evr seen. hving super amoled 4.3inch screen and 1.2ghz dual core proceesor also hvin vry slim body its vry cool nd sexy phne......:)
I think this is WAY better than iPhone 4, Samsung Google Nexus S i9023 alone is better, and Galaxy S II is better than Nexus S. Just my two cents, though.
