    I come directly from the iPhone 4, stable phone, battery last a day and a half...got myself a GS2 last week, boy this phone is hard to keep stable. The Battery lasts maybe 12 hours, it does some freaky stuff. Like during the night, the screen stays on for no reason, then i close it, it turns back on 10 seconds later. This morning, its at 100%, i go take a shower, i come back, the phone is hot as hell, it doesnt want to turn on, i take out the battery and when i turn it back on, surprise, battery at 72%. WHY??? I love android but is it always so hard to keep a phone working correctly?

    Some people have had hardware issues that gave similar symptoms. I would take it back to the shop and sort it out.

    I moved from iphone to S2 - it just isn't as smooth and quite as easy to use but it really is worth the effort, its a far better device once you get it set up

    Yes my phone is rooted because i am with rogers and they dont have GS2 yet but they will have the LTE model in a couple of days, so i bought a GS2 just to get used to it. Im on VillainROM 2.4.2 i think which people say is the best best rom because its stock but fixes most stock problem.

    Anyways, Android is awesome, but if youre not a techy guy you might not have the same experience as the stock iOS who is pretty much newb friendly. iPhones are very stable, i've had them all from the original one to the 4, i loved my iphone experience but i was fed up with all the restrictions Apple give devs. thats why i switched.

    I guess for my GS2 LTE i wont root it, this one i didnt have a choice to unlock it.

    Check out the thread I just posted. It'll answer your questions about the overheating. It's the usb port.
