    I have a Samsung Galaxy S 2 which is 4 days old.

    I have noticed that my battery consumption is high, I need to recharge my battery on a daily basis.

    Are there any way of improving my battery life? If I update mu firmware, does it improves my battery life?

    My version is as follows

    Baseband I9100XXKF1 and phone model is GT-I9100

    Any help is highly appreciable.

    I have the same phone and I'm getting a good days worth of use, but it does consume the juice. I bought an extra battery (which I'm thrilled that I can actually do that coming from an iPhone) and pop that in when I need it.

    One of the ways that I conserve power is using a program called Screebl that will not let the screen timeout on you when you're holding it and using it, but it immediately shuts the screen off when you're not, instead of waiting for the preset timeout to occur. Believe it or not, those few seconds add up. I would give that a try. They have a free version and I have a paid version.

    Question: did you install Samsung Kies and get it working? I can't get mine to recognize the phone, even though it's supported.

    I looked for kiess but found its not officially available for US. I could be that kiess is programed to NOT detect phones from US.

    I always automatically turn the screen off when I'm done using it, so that's sort of not something that would help me... I figured everyone did that. XD
