    So I currently have an iPhone 3GS and want an android. Bad. iPhone has bored me to death and it is time for something new.

    Anyway, I was planning on waiting for the new string of phones to come out (I'm on ATT), but now I saw the free Atrix deal at Best Buy through tomorrow.

    Basically, I'm wondering if I should buy the Atrix or wait for the Galaxy S2. I like the smaller screen better (or so I think; I've only used the iPhone), but I also like the S2's supposed performance. I have never owned an android, so I don't know much about UI's. I know this is probably a biased place to ask this, but what do you think?

    Galaxy S2 or Atrix? Or as long as I'm waiting should I wait for the next Nexus?

    Thanks!
    Alex

    S2 over the Atrix, no doubt.

    i think the replies in the SGS2 forum are gonna all be for the SGS2, very few of us are disappointed with it :D but having said that, even if i didnt own it, i'd recommend the SGS2 over the atrix, its superior in pretty much every way..

    and although im not sure about this, i think the atrix is pretty similar in size.. and i think u'd love the large screen of the SGS2, its just brilliant. having used my friend's desire S, which is much more compact, i really feel the large screen is benefit

    Honestly, coming from an iPhone, you'd probably be better of with the Galaxy S2 simply because Touchwiz UI that comes on the GS2 is closer to the iPhone style than Motorola's UI... so that will make it a little easier of a transition for you.

    Does anyone have any opinions on TouchWiz 4.0 vs the new MotoBlur (ninjablur?) on the Atrix?
