comment Battery Life and First Time Charging on Li-ion Batteries. Myth?
@dandaman12: Nickel–metal hydride battery or NiMH, your typical rechargeable AA batteries are still of this type. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nickel%E2%80%93metal_hydride_battery)

@RyanShillington: Leave it in the charger overnight, and the charge system will usually reset its full charged set-point.

comment Battery Life and First Time Charging on Li-ion Batteries. Myth?
@LieRyan: True, i.e. the advice about charging the battery fully before first use ensures that the battery meter is calibrated accordingly.

comment Battery Life and First Time Charging on Li-ion Batteries. Myth?
Except you are forgetting one thing: Calibration. Modern LiPo batteries have a very flat discharge curve, i.e. the voltage is almost exactly the same independent of the charge level. Thus the phone cannot use the voltage to estimate the charge level. It therefore has to measure how much energy goes in and out of the battery, in order to determine the current charge level. To do this the phone have to charge the battery fully, alt least once, in order to determine the upper bound of the charge level. I.e. if it is not charged fully, it might show 100% charge at a lesser charge than full.

Finally found that setting, see my updated question, it is turned off, it does not mitigate the problem. :/

comment App optimization on every reboot?
@MatthewRead: Actually, as far as I understand I is really the JIT process being performed during the first boot. I know that contradicts the term JIT (a bit). See the sources that eldarerathis provides, they confirm this.

@onik: I cannot find anything called TalkBack in the settings menu, nor any such running process. Where should I go look for TalkBack?

I cannot find anything called "car mode" or "driving mode" in any of the settings menus. :/

I have looked in most of the settings menu, including that one. And there is nothing that indicates that it should be reading anything out loud.

@Al Everett: Solution from "duplicate" does not work on Galaxy S II. I am looking specifically for solutions anybody may have found on the Galaxy S II. Please reopen?
