Samsung Galaxy S II for T-Mobile switches to ridiculous speed, overclocked beyond 1.8GHz

Risky? Most certainly yes, but the gang of code-crunching experts over at XDA-Developers decided to have some fun with a Samsung Galaxy S II for T-Mobile anyway and brought the operating frequency of its processor above the 1.8GHz mark. That is more than 300MHz past the 1.5GHz, which the smartphone's dual-core Qualcomm chipset is clocked at out of the box.
The feat has been accomplished by installing an unofficial overclocking kernel that has been circulating the web for some time. And even though clock speed is just a number that does not always translate into better performance, those who have been brave enough to try it show that benchmark scores of an overclocked T-Mobile Galaxy S II are noticeably higher.
Needless to say, you shouldn't try overclocking your T-Mobile Galaxy S II unless you really know what you are doing. But if you decide to try it out anyway, feel free follow the instructions provided at the source link below.
- Display 4.5" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S3, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1850 mAh(7.00h talk time)

Manufacture setting is the best.

I really dont see any point for your comment. already proven me wrong? I certainly didnt mean EVERYONE. though I thought they are more than 10 percent. I meant manufacture setting is not the best. jailbreaking makes iphone more functional, and if you dont mess with it so much, it offers the same speed. and, the sources you are talking about, are more than 2 years old. here is a more recent one: http://www.idownloadblog.com/2

Now that's what I call multi-purposed. Still waiting on the toaster capability though. :P

The thing for me is I am not a major fan of any one phone maker over the next. The thing that does have my attention is Motorola's webtop feature. That puts me in a postion where I pretty much have to choose a Motorola phone to get the webtop feature. As mentioned before I'm not biased towards one phone maker over another. I want Samsung's Galaxy screen size but I want Motorola's webtop feature (keyboard and mouse of course). Does anybody know if any other phone manufacturer's are coming out with there own webtop-like feature or am I stuck sticking to only Motorola to get something like the webtop. I saw something about a webtop-like device for the Evo 4g but the description did not say anyting about keyoard/mouse connections, plus it seemd like it was only for EVo 4g. ????????????????? I will post this same comment on a few other threads in case no one see's it here so don't be annoyed if you see this post on 6-7 other threads!!! (maybe more if I don't get a response)
