Default Help me choose: HTC G2 or Samsung Vibrant

So I am a cell phone lover. I usually change my phone every 3 months. Right now I am rocking an unlocked 3gs iPhone. However I find myself missing my Android phone more and more. So I have decided to come back to Android but I am wondering which phone to really get. I know in the end it is personal preference but I would like to hear what you the people on this wonderful forum have to say. Whats the good or the bad.

Let me hear your thoughts people

A new phone every 3 months? Wow!

What are your intended uses of the phone? The G2 and Vibrant are very similar phones.

Yeah I kind of love my cell phones a lot.


I do design and web work a lot. Need it for music and such. I have a lot of MP3's. and iTunes songs. Mostly use it for texting (I have fat fingers) Twitter, my blogs and my many email accounts. Not to mention just regular social media stuff. Facebook, flcikr, linked in, etc.

I would go with the G2, seems like a winner from what your phone use looks like. And I agree with the others. He probably sells them, excellent way to keep his addiction going

You don't kid around, do ya?

First you buy a new phone every three months, then within 24 hours you order a new one and get it the next day?!

Paid for overnight?

lol, well at least you'll enjoy it!
