    Ok I just checked out the gs2 at the att store...and I had some questions

    1. How is streaming video?(I streamed a high quality vid from espn, and other than the initial load, no buffering!)

    2. How is it watching movies/tv shows?

    3. How is the camera? (I took some pics in the store (maybe default setting isnt 8mp), and when and they seemed to get a little fuzzy, if anyone has taken any pics using the phone and can upload them here thatd be great)

    4. Can you zoom video recording? (Quality seemed ok, but I couldnt figure out how to zoom at all) (If anyone has a link to like a youtube video shot with it or anything thatd be great)

    5. Has anyone used the AtBat app to stream MLB games, if yes, does it work well and is the quality good?

    Any other comments/tips would be appreciated!

    1. Streaming video depends on your internet connection, or AT&T's speeds. When on WIFI it's pretty great. AT&T's network... your mileage may vary. :)

    2. I tested streaming some DVD's I had ripped on my computer via DLNA to the phone. They were perfect, if small, representations of the movie.

    3. Camera is pretty good, but let's be honest, it's still a cell phone camera. It's fine for family snapshots but don't expect portfolio quality. The camera works best in good light. If the flash was turned off in the store and the light wasn't "daylight", then the pictures will be fuzzier than usual. The flash works pretty well, doesn't seem to over-saturate the pictures with light.

    4. Yes, use the volume rocker to zoom video.

    5. I don't use that app, but see #1 for the most likely answer.

    Thanks, yeah the camera is a big thing for me as it would be replacing my 7mp point and shoot
