Perfect thread to talk about what happened to my phone this morning.

So I'm usually not the guy that charges his phone overnight and takes it off the charger the next morning, cuz I get paranoid something is gonna happen.

Well I fell asleep last night while the phone was on the charger. When I picked up my phone this morning it was FREAKIN HOT (I mean hotter then it has ever gotten before) and the battery was drained pretty low.

Turned out that my AC adapter went defective overnight and fortunately I had a different AC handy to replace and troubleshoot.

Crazy thing is that everybody else I know charges their phone overnight too. IDK maybe it's just me *sigh* lol...

I too charge my phone over night and don't experience that problem. Although, once it did happen to me when I had my xperia ray(never Sony again), but that was due to keeping it under my pillow all night while charging.

Did u have yours under your pillow while it was charging?:what:

A quick question to you guys:

On average how much screen on like do you manage on your phone with around medium brightness?

I'm getting just over 3 hours, but I'm wondering if I should be getting more. My battery is 1 year old already, so it may have already lost its full capacity.

I'm also swaying between the Anker 1900mah and Official 2000mah. Ideally i'd like to keep the same battery cover.

Any thoughts?

Hi guys,

This is my first post here in XDA. I'm a noob or, what sometimes is the same, a demon or something...The funny thing is that i've been a member for a long time (2007) but having nothing to say, just read...so it'd be kinda odd if someone's call me noob...hahahhaha

Being using a Galaxy S2 for a year and I think is one of the best smartphones ever made. Even a year later remains one of the most powerful...and with CM10 I'm happier of having it...

I've read a lot of threads and discussions, and it's nice to read and write in a thread like this.

Thank you so much olyloh6696.

Greetings from Madrid.

Sorry for my english..

Great thread.

Well I too keep my phone charging overnight. Ok from this does anyone know is it possible to keep phone in aeroplane mode yet access wifi? An app or tasker script would really help. I want to stay connected to wifi so as to be able to download stuff overnight.

Good idea cos sometimes you don't know if you'll get flamed for asking questions in the wrong thread
