Samsung Galaxy SII

Zombie Samsung Galaxy S2

The other week,  I shared that my Samsung Galaxy S2 was damaged after it went for a spin on my washing machine. We managed to bring it to life after we replaced the power IC. However, the baseband is missing downgrading the device into a media player. And then finally (after playing Subway Surfer),  it decided it was time to finally rest in peace.


A Water-Damaged Samsung Galaxy S2

Just before Christmas of 2012, my Samsung Galaxy S2 had a terrible accident.  It went into the washing machine and had a couple of spins. It almost survived but eventually died. I had it repaired and used it as media player(no gsm signal) until it finally stopped working.

Hairline Scratch on my Samsung Galaxy S2

After more than a year of using my current SGS2,  it’s GorillaGlass finally showed a scratch. It’s been on ‘commando mode’  (no screen protector) since last year. It went into my pocket numerous time with my keys but it never had a scratch. That’s until I put it in a paperbag which I forgot also contains my set of keys and some other stuffs. Upon checking, there’s the scratch.

Samsung Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean Update

I’ve first heared about the Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S2 in August.  Back then,  rumors say the release is imminent. A month after,  a report in CNET was published intimating that the update would come in as little as two weeks or early October. Guess what,  October is ending amd no Jelly Bean update on sight.
