    just to be clear I'm the one with the EVO 3D and trading for the gs2.

    my question is why or why wouldn't you do the trade ?
    both devices are in excellent condition with the gs2 completely untouched-not rooted so It's as pure as out the box.

    thanks in advance :)

    surely there must be pros and Cons of each device, the EVO I know well but the gs2 not so well....ok let me get strait to the point, I'm wondering if i will later regret the trade ?

    It depends on how much you like Sense. I have an EVO 3D, too. And personally, I wouldn't exchange mine for a Samsung Galaxy S2 (Sprint's version) at all.
    Some people prefer Samsung, while others prefer HTC Sense. Both devices are okay, but i prefer Sense.

    Heres my take on this, some Evo 3D users may not like this. :p

    Evo 3D
    + 3D Screen
    + Higher resoltuion Screen (540 x 960)

    Galaxy S II
    + SAMOLED Plus
    + Faster CPU
    + Faster GPU
    + Better camera
    + Higher quality video recording (1080p 30fps)
    + Thinner and lighter
    + Storage (16GB vs 1GB)
    + Better stock video/music players, supports more formats
    + Better battery life (even though it's a smaller battery)
    + Very durable (You would be supprised how much punishment this thing can take)

    There are also differences which don't fit into either, like Sense vs touchwiz and the choice of materials used.

    Personally I'm not bothered about material, so long as the phone remains lightweight and durable I'm happy.

    Touchwiz is incredibility smooth especially with the ICS rom where as sense is a bit of a resource hog, HTC even admitted as much.

    That said is it a good swap? Depends, if it was just a straight swap than great, if you had to pay than it depends on how much you spent. :D

    International version SGS2 specs is what he's talking about. Truth is, the international version of the SGS2 is better than the US versions AFAIK.

    but what's it like to own a gs2....with that being said I literally jumped at the idea of owning a sense 3 device but after some time I didn't appreciate the animations anymore. I wanted to get something done fast without waiting for animations though I think ill miss the 3D :(

    I'm afraid you all wasted your time responding to this. The poster has previously been banned for doing exactly the same thing i.e. posting numerous "X vs Y" topics.
