Samsung Galaxy S II is a very slim and light weight smartphone. Plastic is being used to reduce its weight. However, those parts are easily being scratched. Therefore, case is needed to reduce unwanted scratches especially back of the phone (camera and bottom). As the result, I bought Samsung Galaxy S2 Mesh Case from eBay. Based on the seller ~ miki4you, it is genuine Anycall case from Samsung Korea. The golden tag at behind is different with silver tag on official Samsung case that sold in UK. How does it perform? Let’s find out…
Browser is one of the most frequent used applications on my Samsung Galaxy S II. For those who want to use built in SGS2 browser, here are the must know tips and tricks for you.
Samsung Galaxy S2 Browser does not enable text reflow by default. You need to enable it manually. To do so, go to Settings then enable ‘Auto-fit pages ~ Format Web pages to fit the screen’. However, this text reflow or the function of word wrapping text when zoom in only work when double tap.

Samsung Galaxy S II is one of the best Android phones in the market now. But where should you buy it in Malaysia? Samsung Galaxy S2 is selling at recommended retail price (RRP) ~ RM2099. Currently, Maxis is the only telco that offer Samsung Galaxy S2 at RM1199 on 24 months contract. Yes, SGS2 is not exclusive for Maxis like SGS1. So you can get it at any mobile phone shop in Malaysia. There are AP and original Samsung Malaysia Electronics (SME) supported Samsung Galaxy S II in the market. Of course AP set is cheaper like RM19xx but only supported by that particular mobile phone shop only (You can find some in Lowyat Forum). Or original set with higher price a bit at RM20xx. However, all of Samsung Galaxy S II that sold by them is having 12 months warranty only. Unless you bought it from SEP like I did…

Here is another quick tip and trick for Samsung Galaxy S2 users who love to watch movie or video clips. Press Power button during video playback (work in built-in video player, does not work in YouTube) will lock the touchscreen, Menu, Home and Back keys. You can still adjust the volume while in lock mode.

Err… I hate Samsung Galaxy S II battery fully charged notification sound during night while I am sleeping. Come on, who is the one that come out this idea? And there is no way to turn off the fully charged notification sound in the settings. Hmm… There is a way to disable it totally by changing the system file. But that will require some Android technical knowledge ~ Android Debug Bridge (adb). Not so suitable for new comer which don’t know anything about it. No worry, Battery Charged Silencer comes to rescue…
