My S2 hs just updated to 2.3.5 and it seems somehow more *flaky* I'm struggling to see how it's better. Battery life is no better, UI same apart from some minor irritating changes.

only had my sg s2 monday so dont know what im on but im finding the whole phone awesome.
but the voice control keeps kicking in when i dont want it. I am starting at 7am with 100% battery and by 5pm when im home i have roughly about 45% is that about right. id say 1hours worth of net ect and a 1 hours of music playback. but neverending playing with the settings ect

Battery life is a funny thing, hard to predict. Just leaving the city centre can significantly effect battery life.

I have found that when the phone is more than a few feet away from the mains charger, the battery discharges much more quickly.
Do you turn off bluetooth, update and wireless when not required, as I do?
Placing the 'power control' shortcut on your front screen makes this easy and effective..................
Mind, my Samsung Galaxy Ace has gone very slow and flaky since Gingerbread - no memory methinks or a dodgy app hogging services.
Yes have been using the power control widget on the s2 and the I had previously, so know how to eke out out.
Wonder if there's a further update to solve this? Hmmm, I might plug in my Galaxy Ace and see if there is.
Just had 2.3.5 with Sense 3.0 update on my HTC DesireHD, don't like the lock screen "ring" but going straight to phone or messages from there is useful, can't say it seems anymore flaky but then it wasn't flaky in the first place.
I think HTCs UI was always in a different league from Samsungs wizz of whatever it's called. I preferred the slickness of my old Desire (though not the performance). My swype keyboard in email mode has suddenly taken on a life of it's own, which extremely annoying.
I think that's probably the last Gingerbread update for my Galaxy Ace. Shame, I used to have a Desire but wanted something a little bit smaller and had high hopes for the Samsung. Wonder is someone will buy me out my T-Mobile deal up to July 2012 for another phone?
I have similar feeling about the S2 Graham, it's painfully close to being perfect, but the small glcthes, the need to re-boot every other day to get the switch from wi-fi to mobile data. These things should *just happen* seamlessly. 95% of the time it works perfectly, and is fantastic; which makes a PC running windows more reliable....
i've actually found the stock task manager has helped with mine. You can free up RAM and I've also uninstalled lots of apps I didn't use.
Graham_Thomas What program do you use to free up RAM space?
Hi there and welcome to the forums. It's the stock task manager which should be just on the add widgets?
I think that was just a clever spam...
