    Hello all,

    As I just recently bought an android phone, I am new both to android and this forum- so I'm not really sure if this is the place to post this, but please help as I am experiencing some frustrating issues!

    Let me begin by saying I just bought the new Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket. My first impression of this phone was WOW! The screen size/resolution is amazing. Everything I seemed to do happened immediately and with no delay. Very intuitive user interface, so on a so forth.

    ...Then I started downloading some apps. The main app I use is words with friends. I like to play against my wife who has the Motorola Atrix. I started noticing that my WWF app was taking a long time to load (even compared to my Iphone 3gs that I just upgraded from) so, naturually, I comprared the two. Her's loaded about twice as quickly as mine! And I started noticing some other things too that started to irk me: when opening pandora I had to go through buffering (which varies how long it takes each time). I never had to buffer when pandora started when using my 3GS. Why would this be? I guess I'm just confused how a phone with specs nearly three times as good as my iphone has trouble running apps that my Iphone 3GS had absolutely no problems with.

    I'm getting to the point where I think I may just return this one and wait for the Galaxy Nexus to come out.... I'd gladly pay the extra $50 bucks to not have to deal with these issues. Please advise!!
