Moved from EVO 4g to S2

Spent the weekend getting my S2 all setup and everything moved from the EVO. So far I really like this phone, there are some differences and a few thing I hope Samsung works on. If I used this phone for fun it would be perfect but I use it for business, like 5000 minutes a month and 600 emails.

The battery is good, better than the EVO stock battery but still only lasts be 1/2 a day.
I am not high on the phone dialer, when you use the keypad to type a contacts name it only recognizes the fist 4 charterers then wants you to choose from a list. I have 45 Daves' in the list this is kind of a PITA.

The calendar widget doesn't let you move from month to month with out selecting a day, then selecting month view then moving to a different month.

You have to select reply from a menu on emails to reply or reply all, wish there was a soft key on the screen.

I love the the customization on the screens, the traffic widgets, the texting format, the screen is awesome, and this thing is smoking fast. Glad I made the move can't wait for the Note to hit.

Re: Moved from EVO 4g to S2

I am in the same boat, I came from an Evo4G and my only complaint is battery life. To me the phone is too thin and I've got to buy an extended battery with a door, that'll solve the way it feels and more importantly the battery life.

Dialer issue: Wait for some roms to come out and you can change the dialer. I have 5 Mikes and I put links to important people on the screen. I didn't check but there may be a speed dial thingy. I remember when I used to have a flip phone, I had over 250 speed dials and people would be remembered by #56 or #72. I think this phone has speed dials so that may solve half the problem. Also voice dial may help. "Call Mikey P"

I've never used the installed calendar app so I can't help there. There are a bunch of calendar apps, planner apps, etc on the market and it's a personal prefrence. Download and see what you like. Same with email. I use the Gmail app and it works for me, I tried a few and nothing worked as well as the gmail app.

The first few days I really missed my Evo4G. Glad I made the move. Part of the reason I was sad to see it go was the way I had it set up. Once some Roms come out (ahem, OMJ hint hint) it'll be perfect.

I didn't install ADW Launcher yet. That thing is awesome. I might just do that to customize everything the way I want it.

Re: Moved from EVO 4g to S2

Since there is root access already, can't you undervolt your cpu for extra battery life?

theres apps to fix most of your issues and roms or themes that may also help especially battery life. im a heavy user and i can easily get full day atleast. you can just root and improve it by 6hrs by removing all sprins bloat.

The only thing I can think of is all the Samsung chef's are on XDA.

Re: Moved from EVO 4g to S2

The more I am getting use to it the more I think that HTC's Sense is better for business use. If I didn't have to use the phone so much while driving it would be OK, but so far it's just OK.

Re: Moved from EVO 4g to S2

I am considering replacing my EVO with this. Don't really want the 3D, not impressive. Only thing this would be my first non-HTC smart phone since the PPC6700, so im a little nervous...:0
