  6. Good reviews on your website, I am a newcomer :)

    So Kies is the K….ey? good for Windows users….. how about Mac users who cannot update via Kies? pretty unfortunate Samsung don’t think of them (us), who are also Samsung customers and don’t care about brand battles but about good products
    Does rooting fixes the problem of those Galaxy S2 who suddenly turns off without apparent reason and often (like mine purchased in April 2012) ?

  7. not yet available in india….
