Help needed choosing a new phone
Monday 29th of August 2011
Hello. Recently I've broken my old SE C510i's screen, so I need a new phone.I'm currently torn between the HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy SII. My girlfriend has the Desire S and I'm very impressed by HTC's quality, but the Sensation seems to take a serious beating in reviews due to a very short battery life. The screen resolution is higher but the quality isn't nearly as good as S2's (or so they say). Also, it seems to be slower than the Samsung. The problem is, I'm not sure that I even need a phone this size, though smaller phones are slower/have less features. I've read about the upcoming HTC Vigor, which is supposed to be even better, but most of the info are rumors and I need my own phone as soon as possible. The price isn't known either and the Sensation is already close to crossing the line of "affordable" so Vigor might be (with specs like those it just has to be) even more expensive.So:Which one would you choose and why?Are two cores really needed (is there anything that even uses all that power?) or is it more of a future-proofing feature?Which one is more custom
Bricked phone with broken home button, what to do???? Help!
Monday 22nd of April 2013
So my girlfriends telephone is a Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 Its had a unresponsive home button for a while now. But this morning, it suddenly decided to become bricked, stucked looping on the start up screen. I'm not sure if this is due to the fact the battery has seemed to be loosing performance lately or not. Can anyone tell me in lame terms how I can get in to recovery mode, or fix this start up problem/bricked, with a non-working home button. What is the usual life span on a Galaxy 2? The girlfriend has only had this phone for 15 months, and she keeps it in her bag normally, not treated that bad, would get more abuse in my trouser pocket I think. Cheers.Matt

HELP! Samsung Galaxy S2 won't go past "SAMSUNG" logo, home button broken!!
Thursday 12th of September 2013
Okay, so my Samsung Galaxy S2 is stuck on the loading "samsung" screen and won't go beyond that. I've switched it on and off countless times, however am unable to do a hard reset (home+power+volume) as my home button stopped working (a few months back). I've tried connecting it to Kies (unsuccefully) and replaced the battery countless times. It's running Jellybean 4.0.Is there any other way to factor reset it or a way to fix it?Thankyou in advance for any advice.

Help with Galaxy SII - Powers on, senses my touch, but no graphics. HELP
Thursday 12th of December 2013
So I tried to fix this galaxy t989 s2, broken lens. I watched several videos on youtube, seemed fairly easy. All seemed to go well. Phone looks brand new, and turns on, but I get a blue flash along the left side of the screen, and that's about it. It can sense my touch on the screen, as I hear it working as usual, but I've got a black screen, no graphics. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help, appreciated.
An Stupid Question but reasonable. I'd like a help.
Friday 09th of January 2015
Hello Sirs, I Believe it is a Stupid Question but here we go. Does anyone here know how many pins are on Display of Galaxy S2 and on Galaxy S4? I have broken my Display and LCD screen while trying to repair it (Both's Galaxys); The Glass didn't separated from the Covers and i accidentally broken it. but i have the Galaxy S2 connection working( I think). And want to try Connect Galaxy S2 Display on Galaxy S4 pin to try recover some information while i don't buy another Display. I live on Brazil, maintenance here is expensive. Thanks for the Help.
