    I was reading a thread where it says there is a difference with AT&T version to the International version I'm not talking about the t-mobile epic

    However the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S2 will not use the physical home button of the original smartphone in its place capacitive buttons will be used on the smartphone.

    Are there any other differences ?

    Personally I've come to dislike the 'international' edition's physical homekey, it gets loaded with finger grease and I'm wondering if I could replace it with one of the all-capactitive screens should I ever drop my phone and it cracks, should work, although having the extra key (magnifying glass thing, wth is it for?) will suck.

    it's funny I went out tonight and looked in the sprint and AT&T store, Also t-mobile store and looks like there not restocking any phones I guess they are waiting to be bought out !, the phones in the sprint and AT&T store have no physical keys on any of there phones LOL

    only tmobile store had all physical keys on every phone, all old junk phones :rolleyes: surprised anyone would be in there :rolleyes:

    anyway looking at them gave me some thoughts about that physical key thing now !

    I'm wondering if other people had anything to say about that key LOL I hope it doesn't feel anything like the ones I felt in the tmobile store,


    Also to mention I notice that the LG's and HTC's in AT&T feel like more quality built then the samsungs , samsungs have no weight to them where as HTC has that nice felt grip backing and the LG's have some good quality feel to them

    It is the search button. Same function as long pressing the menu button on the international version of the phone, just a little faster due to not having to long press it.

    The home key is made of plastic, not gorilla glass like one could assume, my screen is pristine yet my HK button has some scratches on it. I'm going to get it replaced with a piece of onyx I think, if I don't opt for the other screen.
