    Got my S2 a week ago, must say I am very very impressed. I have it permanently on Skype and Yahoo messenger. A lovely app called visidon applock. Which allows you to protect apps from unauthorised use by face recognition. I get an hour or so of constant use per day (games, web browsing, various apps and reading kindle) and it gets charged every 15 hours and only drops to about 40% battery.

    The missus had the galaxy 1 and it's buggy, slow, and needs charging a lot!

    Got mine at the weekend. I love the phone, main thing i'm annoyed about is the battery. Goes about 20 hours max before going flat, where the old hero lasted nearly 2 days.

    Substantial bloatware on the device too, might have to root and see if they can be removed. Although the root process doesn't look as simple as others.

    Excellent recommendation of an app....just installed and I love it already!

    An extra layer of security....means my 6 year old cannot access stuff on my phone, when he's going between games!!!

    Get titanium backup, you can freeze and uninstall system apps with it once you've root access :-)

    Just used 'root uninstaller' to freeze a bunch of bloatware and things I have no interest in (f**ebook, mediahub etc etc). I'll better not uninstall anything until I've got a backup!

    Do you know if a backup device like clockwork (for nandroid backups) can be used or is there no point as it seems to have a recovery flasher built in?

    Talking of Samsung.....

    Does anyone else find Kies to be a major PITA!

    I've had it connect to my Galaxy S once....in 2 months....This kind of thing is really unacceptable from a major phone company

    I tend to trust Clockworkmod more than anything else for nandroid backups - and ROM manager can install it with no fuss, so I tend to use it.

    been running my galaxy s2 for a couple of months now. love the screen and the feel. have put on a better rom and used titanium to freeze all the rubbish left running (inc samsung touchwiz). can generally get 2 and a half days out of the phone on normal usage now.
