Samsung Galaxy S2 Problems Since iPhone 3GS Swap: Q&A
We receive many emails and today we would like to mention a few queries about ex-iPhone 3GS owners changing over to the Samsung Galaxy S2, the title says it all really and we are calling out to other Galaxy S2 owners to see if they think it is a dismal handset.
We will give you the main email hates about the SGS2 smartphone, many iPhone 3GS owners left Apple for the new Samsung phone because of software issues, bugs etc. Here are a few of the cut-down emails (Cut a long story short basically).
Email One: Making calls is a nightmare, maybe it’s me being clumsy but I seem to have problems with the ‘End Call’ button. If you hit the home menu button instead of the end call button by mistake, which takes me out of the phones menu. The call is still in process because obviously I have hit the wrong button (fair enough), now it is fine that at the top on the handset screen you see the green bar menu (similar to the iPhone when in a call), now seeing as there is no ‘End Call’ button now how do you end the call? Now with the iPhone if when in a call and you hit the home button you will see a green bar at the top showing you are still in a call, you press this and it brings the call options up again.
Phones Review Answer: This one is easy, see when you are on the main screen and the green bar is showing at the top, just put your finger on this and drag is downwards for options. This worked for us anyway.
Email Two: The iPhone was very good when sending texts and the predictive text was fantastic, since having the Samsung Galaxy S2 I find this feature deplorable to say the least.
Phones Review Answer: Not sure if I would say it is deplorable and we are not taking sides here, but we find the predictive text not so bad on the SGS2. If you prefer why not try out the Smart Keyboard Pro app that is available to download via the Android Market for only Â£1.77
Email Three: We received an email by a reader, and they asked if anyone has experienced problems with messages disappearing. The messages did come through bit the vanished, not sure if it is something I am doing wrong but would greatly appreciate your expertise, if you cannot answer could you so kindly ask your readers.
Phones Review Answer: We are not sure about this one, so yes we will kindly ask our readers. If you know the answer to ‘Email Three’, please do use the commenting area below. Thanks
Email Four: We have had multiple emails covering this subject, the email subject most of the time said, “Battery Life on Samsung Galaxy S2 is dismal”. There is no more to say about this here, read the answer below.
Phones Review Answer: Yes, there have been a few complaints about the battery life on the Samsung Galaxy S2. We recommend you visiting FoneHome as they have few tips on how to save battery life.
That is just four problems mentioned above via emails; there are a few more, which of course we will let you know some other time. If you own the Samsung Galaxy S2 smartphone and you are having issues with it, please do let us know about them. Please answer some or all of the emails we received in the commenting area below as well please. Have you left the Apple iPhone 3GS for the Galaxy S2 and now left feeling disappointed?
