Hi all,

Sorry if this isn't the thread to post to, but I came accross this thread and feels like this is the place to post any SII Plus questions, correct if I'm doing something wrong.

I just bought a Samsung GS II Plus. Opinions, was it a good buy? I bought it for 179,99, as my budget was a bit tight. But there are several quad core available right now, especially the Wiko, which seem really nice.

I decided based on screen size (5" just feels huge!) and internal storage space (8Gb, 4 available to the user, which is quite disappointing). And of course, the price, which seemed like a good one, altough the specs aren't the most recent ones.

After buying it, used with Android ver 4.1.2 for a whole day and upgraded it to 4.2.2 as it was available.

Q1: What happened to the bubble lockscreen notifications with this update? They were replaced by a new kind of notifications that have absolutely no functionality at all.

Q2: Is it possible to have the bubble notifications back?

Q3: Will a Kitkat release be available to this phone?


Any answers you might provide are welcome.

TIA

It's not the effect, but the notifications for unread SMS ans missed calls.

There are now many posts on the front page of this forum about this apparently being the case. (Just if you missed it)
