    i know the samusung is better on paper ,but i have some qurestions...
    1. Are there a lot of messaging errors? or errors in general?
    -None, whatsoever.
    2. Should i root this?
    -You should always root your phones! but if you can't/don't want to then its not required. This is one of the phones that I actually can use unrooted, however I always take the rooted route (no pun intended).
    3. Which phone looks better?
    -That's up to you. The S2 is a pretty nice looking phone though.
    4. Which phone is truly faster (like loading apps and stuff not on paper ,but in RL)
    -This is like comparing apples to oranges. They are different because their OS's are completely different.
    5. Which is slimmer and lighter?
    -The S2 is both slimmer and lighter. The screen is also much bigger (MUCH bigger).
    6. Which one do you prefer and why?
    -Well considering this is android forums after all I think you know the answer to that. I personally prefer android (I've used both) because of the customization and ability to make your phone however you like.
    7. Which has a smoother feel to the phone in general?
    -They're both about the same in my opinion.
    p.s i am deciding on which on to buy from VM and can't decide so could you please help? :)

    Go with the S2. You won't regret it (you can trust me on that). It has a huge screen for a really great web browsing experience, it's plenty fast for any smartphone user. You have to remember this phone was top of the line when it came out. Also its $200 cheaper than the iphone. I mean who doesn't want to save $200 for the better phone?! :rolleyes:

    so no messaging errors... what about heating does it heat up real fast like my htc evo v 4g? when using 3g for playing a game?

    no its not hard to root in my opinion. the triumph isn't even in the same league as this phone(in android build and in processor type/speed, the SII is dual core) YES THIS PHONE IS A WORLD BETTER THAN THE TRIUMPH! Juice defender = best battery saving app.


    P.S Apple cant even compare in quality like android imho

    this is true, but i take it to be fact that Iphones are overpriced, uninspired, under-powered, bricks of glass :D :p

    I'll throw in on this...my mom has a 4S and I've got the S2.

    Performance: Doesn't matter. I've run some demanding apps on both (including Autodesk's Inventor Publisher, ForceEffect Motion, AutoCAD WS browsing some 2+ Gb CAD files) and both run fine. According to CPU Spy, I spend very little time above 800Mhz on the processor on the GS2, and I haven't come across anything that slows down the 4S.

    Feel/Quality: GS2 is bigger, thinner, lighter and has a significantly bigger screen. No complaints about the material or construction quality at all. That said, for some reason the 4S, being smaller and heavier, just feels a little more solid. It's a little easier to hold and operate, especially if you like using the phone 1-handed. I'm a big guy with big hands (10.5" span) and my GS2 can be a little awkward one handed sometimes.

    I would say the only real deciding factor would be whether you prefer Android or iOS (and cost, if you like iOS enough to pay Apple's markup for it).
