If these issue is there, how these going to affect mobile in long term??

Sriram Ramaswami, 06 Jun 2011I am trying to upgrade my sgs2 firmware to KE7 but i get a weird message from Kies saying that... moreWith all respect sir, Just do know one thing, Kies is the CRAPPIEST software of all time. That message you are getting is quite normal, I have had it for last one year with my Wave. But that doesn't mean that you have the latest firmware installed. Just log on to samfirmware.com and see what's the latest one available for India and Flash it via Multiloader. It's Safe, Hassle free. Just get rid of Kies, you will have more peace in life.
indecision, 06 Jun 2011well, this phone as great specs but how is it on real life conditions?
and it looks a bit vul... moreI got my phone today...first impressions:
Speed: really fast(no lag at all)
Sound: headphones sound:good (not as good as my omnia 2)loudspeaker: good
Battery life: good(since i only have it for one day i can't say much)
The feel of the phone: really light in weight, solid, good built, no finger print magnet(as my omnia 2)
Incoming/outgoing calls quality: I think it's a little bit lower than my Omnia 2,but good overall
Music player does not have SRS WOW HD but it has 5.1 channel.Although I personally think WOW HD is better
Internet browsing: fast
i bought my s2 just for rs.29000 in karnal,haryana today. very nice device awesome touch and everything
well, this phone as great specs but how is it on real life conditions?
and it looks a bit vulgar and cheap... not sure if I will buy it.
What is the point of buying an expensive phone if it looks cheap and common? Ok, I don't want a pretensions phone but would you buy a Mercedes or Rolls-Royce if they looked as an Hyundai?
I don't think so.
It can have the specs of a high end, but it hasn't got the looks or the feel of a top of the range.
I am trying to upgrade my sgs2 firmware to KE7 but i get a weird message from Kies saying that " This version of the device cannot be updated". its a brand new unlocked phone which I got from an official retailer in chennai here. Does that mean there's no new firmware available or there's something wromg? Anybody from chennai who have tried to update their firmware?
[deleted post]hey moderator congrats on being a proud owner, did u got it from d stores i suggested u ? Just give a brief about d headphones performance n does it feel too big in palm.
no doubt ,screen has yellowish spot..those who r saying that no yello tint is there might be lucky or just fraud..?
video focusing problem in GS2...not in still when moving camera....can any one notice??????????
Will this phone have any competitors say in 6 months, when i will renew my plan and get this baby for free? or will others take the crown? im thinking of these, please compare samsung users, my last samsung was a feature TDMA phone that is more than obselete
iPhone 5 - out of the picture though i have a macbook i hate the limitations and i dont want to jailbreak it every 2 months..
lg 3d phone
samy UK, 06 Jun 2011no it doesn't mean that but I had on mine and its been return and so as many people according... moreThat might have been a case with the uk lot....but i can assure you that my phone is absolutely fine as of now. So imo the yellow spot problem can be country specific.
moderator1, 06 Jun 2011But what if i am not having any spots on my device?? Does that mean that my eyes have a fault??no it doesn't mean that
but I had on mine and its been return and so as many people according to carphone warehouse manager I spoke to. so this may not have affected every handset, but anyone that I know of having this phone, managed to see this yellow spot.
This is a general issue and I am really amaized how your handset not affected.
samy UK, 06 Jun 2011I hate , and I mean hate i-trash mate, don't get to sensitive about this what I pointed out ... moreBut what if i am not having any spots on my device?? Does that mean that my eyes have a fault??
[deleted post]I hate , and I mean hate i-trash mate,
don't get to sensitive about this
what I pointed out is a fact, I love SII, and I believe apart from build which is cheap the internal functions are fantastic, that is why I bought one, but having a YELLOW spots over my screen is not on, and no one should keep their phone if they see this, I returned mine and many other people did.
its a time to be mature about this mate, you paid for it , so it need to fit the spec they selling this to you.
grow up and get real
[deleted post]DOES your eye balls captures YELLOW SPOTS as well?
if not please have your eyes tested, as yellow spots are there and many people reported and return this phone for that reason
including me mate!
MOAI, 06 Jun 2011Why Samsung Galaxy S II doesn't have the latest Android 2.3.4 since it is the latest Smart pho... moremate despite the screen problem, I am not sure what you talking about. SII got the latest gingabreat platform, and you want to jump 10 step and talking about 2.3.4!!! slow down man, one step at the time.
[deleted post]Mate, I appreciate people get so attached to their phone and like to put a blind eyes on certain fault, I was like that to some extend and of course there is a limit you should compromise. SII is a great phone no doubt, but screen yellow spot is there and its a problem which gets worse and not better. The shop manager told me he had many return to the point of panic. Samsung messed it up with this fault, and I certainly returned mine, I shall still wait to see if they can fix it or replce it with the new one, but if not fully sorted I just go with something else.
I don't want to look at the yellow screen everyday (specially once it start getting worse) remember this phone is new and yet this yellow spots can turn worse.
wish you good luck mate
