Slow GPS connection to satellite

    My Samsung Galaxy S2 is really slow at getting a fix on to a satellite when using GPS and I wonder if my phone has a problem or if it's normal and my expectations are just too high??

    When I switch GPS on in the open air with a good clear view of the sky my phone can take anything up to 15 mins to lock on to a satellite. Is this normal or does it sound like my phone's GPS may be faulty? How long does your phone take to lock on to a satellite please?

    Many thanks

    With my S4, and even my Mesmerize, my phone had my location with in a minute or two. And I just about live in the boondocks.
