Bleh maybe I'll just wait for the Nexus Prime.

I say nexus prime. I just got sgs2 two days ago. I love it! Iphone 4s seems very promising. Tbh though had iPod touch couple years ago. Didn't like the ios. But if you get sgs2 you wont be disappointed, came from HTC aria this phone is so smooth. Even with 8 diffenrt apps open. I'm sure you will be happy with either. All comes down to perosnal taste for what they like.

The main reasons I'm hesitating to get the SGS2 are screen resolution, screen size (4.5" for the Sprint version), and *relatively* weak GPU. The Nexus Prime fixes the screen resolution and GPU for me. But not sure if I can wait much longer... I've been using a crapberry for 2 years now.

Mali-400 is still good. If the iPhone 4 is able to play Infinity Blade despite its inferior SGX535, then an SGS II can take games of that graphical quality. It's not that all bad compared to the SGX543MP2.

Hardware/tech enthusiasts care about specs, usually because of one of the following reason or perhaps a combination of them:

- They believe in functionality over form
- They rate functionality over practicality
- They are hardware nuts to begin with and always want cutting edge hardware
- They want freedom in customizing their phones

It is fine to want customization freedom and high end tech, but at the end of the day those people are still an irrelevant minority in the grand scheme of consumer populace, that means very little. The experience is everything as it is what keeps people coming back for more.

I think age has a big part to do with it too...

I'm a fiddler at heart. I love to customize things. I overclocked my first home-built computer to over 100%. I installed OS mods. I tweaked registries. I modified the cooling on my GPU. Etc, etc, etc.

But, as I get older, I find I like to fiddle less and less. I am much less concerned about seeing how far I can overclock things - I am usually satisfied with either stock speeds, or spending no longer than a half hour doing a quick overclock to what I know will be stable speeds.

My phone especially, I just want it to work. I don't really care much that there are faster phones with more customization options out there, because they aren't as stable as the iPhone. And that's why I am buying a 4S, and not an Android phone - because I know it will work well and not give me any kinds of issues.

Maybe it's an issue of time. Now that I have a daughter and work full-time (+ overtime), I have a lot less time to play games and such. I would rather spend my free time playing games than customizing the computer that I play games on.

Anyway, just thought I'd throw that out there. It's not always about the best hardware or features - often times, people just want something that works well without any unexpected lockups or software crashes or other odd behavior.

BTW, I hate OSX. Because it doesn't "just work" for me. Probably because I have no idea how to use it. tongue.gif

I completely agree with you here. I was all about water cooling and huge monster tower gaming PC's. Now I look more for efficiency, SFF, and low noise as opposed to impractical over clocking and bling. I still appreciate it, just not driven to continue making those types of computers. This is even more extreme when it comes to smartphone. I don't care at all for customization, over clocking, and ROM flashing when it comes to phones. I strongly believe, for example, that I do not need root and flash a ROM on my Incredible to get even mediocre battery life. If I buy a smartphone, it should work great and provide practical battery life (lasts me through the business day) with normal usage, without me tinkering with it on an advance level.

The whole iPhone is more stable argument is dead. It's just not true.

Ok, let me put it a different way.

I love my iPhone 3GS. I have had very few problems with it, and those problems were minimal.

I have heard reports of people owning various Android phones, and having them crash/freeze all the time. Or getting terrible battery life, because multitasking leaves apps running in the background. Or having to flash the ROM, in order to fix this problem or that. Etc, etc, etc.

I don't really care what you mean by "It's just not true." For me though, I know I like the iPhones, and I know they are stable, so I have no reason to risk that and go for an Android phone that may or may not make for a good phone for me.

It doesn't help when one person claims that a particular Android phone is perfectly stable for them, then the next says that they have the same model and it crashes every day. I just don't want to deal with that sort of unknown.

Trust me you won't disappointed with sgs2. Going from that Berry to that will be like going from house made out of cardboard to house made out of win tongue.gif , if you don't love it, then you can make a thread calling me a idiot. tongue.gif , but the prime will be better phone but not like huge difference between Sgs2 . I'm sure improvements. Unless we don't get ice cream. And I don't see why we wouldn't. Isn't this Samsung flagship phone right now. Right?

Well, that is a side effect of the OS having to be made compatible across different hardware variants; it simply cannot be 100% stable all throughout all combinations and permutations of possible devices. However, the fact that it still actually runs on these near-endless hardware combinations speaks of the flexibility of Android. wink.gif

I bet if iOS were to be open-ended, it would be likely to suffer the same inconsistencies due to various configurations OEMs can do to the devices.
