GNEX is not suited for work.
Wednesday 14th of March 2012
There I said it.Today, I got two .ICS calendars appointments from clientsWTF? .ics and the Galaxy Nexus can't even do that?I mean a BIG WTF!!!!! Client laughed at me. I was so embarrassed.Went to another client to discuss a bulk purchase of phones. GNEX was not even suitable after some testing:1) No EAP-TLS certificates2) No CALDAV support. Flaky exchange3) No provisioning tools for deployment.and my other problems:4) Non-working Cisco VPN5) No Push-IMAP/IDLE. This is killing my battery life. 4 hour from charge to discharge.6) MTP filesystemI'm about ready to throw the towel.So much frustration just trying to use it for work.My other fruity phone ... well just works except the 3.5 screen.I know the Galaxy S2, Samsung paid for better exchange and VPN support. I'm thinking Google just cheapped-out. Does Motorola have better Enterprise support?Maybe Vanilla android isn't so great after all.
S2 not charging when phone is switched on
Friday 08th of June 2012
Hi all,My Samsung Galaxy S2 has decided to not charge anymore as of yesterday but only when the phone is powered on. If I attempt to charge it when powered on it will indicate that it is charging but will instead discharge and the back cover gets very hot. The phone does normally get warm if the wifi is in use but this was a lot hotter and i've avoided having the wifi on at all.I've tried charging it from 30% but it instead drains, tried from a fully drained battery but it doesn't charge. So, switching the phone off allowed me to charge it using the mains charger and USB lead but I still can't get it to charge when the phone is powered on.I do have some battery apps that have been working well for the last 8 months and these have now been uninstalled in case they're causing the problem.The CPU seems to be moderate to idle after downloading and checking with Android Assistant, so there's nothing hogging the phone and the problem still exists.I upgraded to ICS 4.0.3 release in April and have an unbranded Galaxy S2.Does anybody have any advice?TIA,P

Multiple charging issues
Thursday 16th of January 2014
My Galaxy S2 has been having a couple problems recently, and I was hoping someone could help. These have mostly started within the past week.First, the battery will sometimes say that it is fully charged, but when I unplug the charger cable, it'll be far from fully charged; sometimes as low as 40 or 50%.Second, the battery will discharge fully while it is on the charger. The phone acknowledges that it is charging, but the battery percentage will slowly drop until it is at zero.Third, sometimes when charging the charge light and battery indicator will rapidly flash between charging and not plugged in (so, the red light will flash off and on, and the battery indicator will flash between the charging icon and the normal use icon).I have replaced the battery with a new one, and the problem persists. I have tried the phone on five different chargers, and the issue occurs on all of them.Please help!
