    2.3.6 is damn good!!
    Its improved my phone's battery life drastically.
    Earlier on 2.3.3 it barely gave 15hrs of battery life, but now on 2.3.6 1day(24hrs) of battery life is normal for my phone!!
    Though, I'm finding my phone to be a bit laggy after flashing the 2.3.6

    I also saw better battery life but not that good. Do you have things running like 3G watch dog or anti virus ? I can get a day out of mine maybe 14 hours of moderate use. Is this the latest version for the S2 threw Ordin ?

    Can someone help list down the upgrades under Gingerbread, 2.3.6. I just received mine. Other than the blue glow on scrolling up down and right left, and I also noticed that I can now scroll around the touchwiz panes like Sense.

    I have AVG anti-virus running.
    I have KL1 on my phone, that's the Indian 2.3.6. I flashed it through Odin.

    1. The interface of photo viewer has changed a bit.
    2. The video can now be played in portrait mode.
    3. Now more of phone memory is free(maybe some apps have been removed).
    4. There are also various minor changes in the Settings menu.
    5. The camera now shows a shutter animation after clicking the pic.
    6. You can now change the Background color in messaging.
    7. I noticed a new layout while switching windows in the stock web browser.

    Thanks. I also think the battery life is better but could just be a perception.

    Try turning on the 'System power saving' in the 'Power saving' settings. Hopefully it will solve your problem.

    If you dont want to wait anymore, try flashing it via Odin. Its as good as upgrading via Kies.

    try updating wifi sleep policy from "Never" to something else.
    wifi sleep policy can be accessed by clicking on menu from wifi settings.

    Probably its a bug, When i install "Battery defender" then my battery drain rapidly, but some people say its perfect app. Probably its not suitable to your phone or its a new version bug.
