    I recently purchased the SGS2 and am very content with it, it really is a great phone. However the elation of this new purchase has degraded into paranoia about its functionality. So i was hoping you guys could lay some of my fears to rest or confirm them, anything outside of this pointless purgatory.

    Basically


    I downloaded the app Phone Tester, and went to look at the sensors on the phone and it seems like my phones accelormeter and gyro sensor behave very erraticly. Even on a completely flat and solid surface the Z variable will not go to 9.8 meters second rather it will very quickly move between 9.6-9.9. Has anyone else noticed this? I have the same effect with my Gyroscope and compass.

    You can also check the sensors without an app...

    Type *#0*# in the dialer keypad and here you'll find details and tests for the gyro and accelerometer.

    I did that as well. I was just wondering what everyone elses sensors look like? Are they stable and slow changing or are they highly eratic like mine? An accurate description of what someone else sees when checking those sensors would be very much welcome :)

    You said it yourself.. it's paranoia :p

    If the phone works fine, why worry?

    For the record the sensor test screen is haywire on mine too.
