Some user asked that it will be outdated after 6 months?
And my answer remains same... morefyi much has been put in2 rnd of quadcore phones but u wnt see em anytime soon because.
1 the amt of power it requires will drain the btry quick.
2 quadcores are expensive.
3 they will heat up the phn real quick so u have to put a fan in the phn n that will make it bulky.
No hard feelinz
Hi, I got my S2 3 days back. i am new to Android. Can some one tell me how to install games to MSD card?
Thanks in advance....
Ok I will explain the reasons I am no longer putting up with the Galaxy S2.
Here are my likes 1st of all.
Screen is nice.
Very fast web browsing.
Here are my DISLIKES
Camera/video are complete joke-VERY VERY POOR quality from the so called 8MP camera, funny how on every single shot I compare to my original Galaxy S that the S2 produce much worse pictures- Also must add its not that my S2 is faulty as my girlfriend also has S2 with very same results.
GPS= NO CHANCE- Constantly searching for signal and volume is impossible to hear.
OVEN GLOVES are required after 5 minutes holding this phone if your browning the web or doing anything that remotely uses power of battery- Its actually scary how HOT this phone becomes.
Phone automatically dims to half brightness when using the phone for 5 minutes with a message appearing saying- reduced power to save overheating.( maybe this will be fixed with firmware upgrade in future but my phone is Vodafone branded so this could be a long wait.
Battery life very poor compared to my original Galaxy S
The biggest fault I have with this phone is how poor the video recording actually is.
Auto focos is a complete failure, constantly in and out of focus and takes about 5 seconds everytime to focus.
EXPOSURE when recording video takes roughly 10 seconds to correct itself, what I mean by this is if you take a video and recording out a window for instance into daylight then continue to video indoor in lower lighting conditions the exposure is complete joke.
I just cant understand why my Galaxy S records video so much better and takes much better photos.
Why also when recording video I am unable to press power button to lock screen to save accidently zooming like I could on Galaxy S
I knew this phone was too good to be true.
Sorry for condition of this email but very hard typing from a phone.
LMAO ive been sat here for 20mins trying to find this dam yellow spot & its just not there, brightness is all the way down & i even turned the lighting down in the room & still no yellow spots at all. Must have just been a bad batch that went out which sometimes happens, but obviously its not a problem on every handset otherwise i'd be taking back & swapping it for another, no not for a htc sensation or any other handset, another sgs2, for a mobile phone this thing is a beast & at only 8.49mm thin...its just the business.
ithehappy, 08 Jun 2011I think it's now time for Samsung to come up and officially state about the Yellowish tint at ... moreI have no idea what everyone talking about yellow spot in left hand side of screen? I owen 2 of them and both have no no problem.
You must of have the selective phone.
[deleted post]Lol ok seriously Samsung fans, who is glad that solvarisis here is on your side? I'm going to read the back to the future story again lol. Hilarious stuff.
[deleted post]That was a good one mate!!!!! Apple should learn from samsung!!!!!!
The phone is awesome.. the battery is poor.
charged full, removed from charger at 100 % .
at 4 % after 17 hours.(100-4 = 966% battery used)
2 hrs calling (36 % of 96% = 35 % actual usage)
10 mins angry birds
10 mins imdb app
clicked 4 photos
1.5 hrs of general fiddling with the phone (Display usage: 30 % of 96 % = 32% actual usage)
push email sync always on, received only 3 emails
gtalk logged in
expected it to do better
Guyz m confused btwn lg optimus 2x n samsung galaxy s2..... After going through their features in gsmarena i came to the point to go for sgs2 but in comment section i saw many customers complaining for appearance of yellow spot in their screen..... Just tell me is it worth buying or i shud go for optimus 2x.....
1) There is no battery issue
2) There is no yellow spots on screen.
3) The wifi has no problems. I connect it to
BT Hopspot and my personal wifi no issue.
4) GPS lock quickly no issues in that as well.
5) The phone gets a little hot only after browsing heavy flash enabled sites. bought frm penta menaka mobile zone frm chottu for 29,999. think this is the best phone in the planet now. Battery will last for 2 days with an hour of browsing. Previously owned a BB9700. Loved it fr texting, but this too is gud for texting with little practice. I am typing this whole comment in the S2. I think its the best tech gadget of 2011. Kudos to Samsung. Aliyanmare adipoli. For any questions contact me. Aron george, Ernakulam.
I think it's now time for Samsung to come up and officially state about the Yellowish tint at left side of screen problem. They have kept this as a secret for long enough now, IT IS TIME for them to announce something about it.
AnonD-9688, 07 Jun 2011Its already available in UAE for 2400 AEDMr.Ajmal, where in the UAE is it available for AED 2400?
Some of you seem to forget that 1st & foremost, this is a mobile phone. Thats right, it - is - a - m o b i l e - p h o n e. Originally designed to make a phone call & send a text message lol
All the other stuff it does is just an added bonus, no one cares how it compares to an ifruit..sorry iphone, htc, nokia, or any other device, it stands on its own as being very stylish,having no lag, no antennagate (ifruit/htc) issues & is capable of taking good pics etc
Stop all the pointless jibba jabba & go get one, if not go jump in ifruits section & post some jibba jabba comments over there...all the best & happy new year lol
Some user asked that it will be outdated after 6 months?
And my answer remains same.Because you will get the quad core mobiles at same price.
