Coming over from the EVO V 4G. Been looking over the threads here to get a feel of the phone. For me, the better camera, and bigger screen are deal breakers. I do have a couple questions though.
I see a couple WiFi issues concerning staying connected. Is that a real issue, because where I live, WiFi is a necessity since VM has horrible coverage in areas here, and no 4g coming in the near future. Also, how hard is it to root? I see there is a one-click method, which I don't trust in the least, and would rather just take some time to root, s-off and install a custom ROM or two. Which leads me to my next question, how are the 4.2 ROMs?
Last, is about overall views on/about the S2. Music & pictures are my tipping points, but I do do a lot of surfing, reading news and just browsing. I don't do a lot of movie watching, playing games or texting, but do want all those attributes there when/if I feel the need to do them.
So I'd appreciate your input on this phone, and in advance, thank you for it.
