I also have the international version, and I am extremely happy with it! I am especially happy because I only got it for 1200 SEK from Sweden since my dads old phone died and they refunded the difference to buy an SGS2.
I highly recommend rooting and installing a custom ROM ASAP!!! I cannot stress this enough. With stock kernel and ROM I got around 40% when I came back home from school, and with my new kernel and ROM I have 75% when I come home from school. This is with very heavy use at 25% brightness.
I would highly recommend installing CriskeloROM v26 or LiteNing ROM v6.1 with a KI3 radio. For the kernel, I would recommend SpeedMod K2-1 or T1-39.

I'm paranoid as HELL to root it, so I probably won't. My friend tried rooting his Galaxy S last week and it bricked it, completely.
3 months ago I didn't know what rooting was at all. Now I am installing new ROMS and kernels every week. I was extremely paranoid when I first started, but now I am not at all. Installing Lite'Ning ROM v6.1 (my favorite ROM) literally takes 5 minutes to do, and the change will blow you away. Installing SpeedMod also only takes another 5 minutes. All of this is done with a program called Odin v1.83.
Besides, you can do a back-up so if anything goes wrong you can recover. Since I started rooting 3 months ago I have now rooted most of my friends phones and my families and installed custom ROMS for them, and nobody has had any issues.Edited by ComradeNF - 10/21/11 at 10:06pm
