    For anyone curious, here's a better to-scale rendition of the three phones:

    Verizon version wont work on at&t, you would have to import an international version.

    If I was on at&t I would have grabbed an sgs2. That exynos processor and everything about the phone is killer even without ICS. The dev community will have ICS on it in no time. If it would have came to verizon I would have got it but now all we have is the nexus so that is what I'll be getting.

    All we have??!! Admittedly not the 100% best specs of the phones out there but pretty good anyway by my calculations. :)

    I kind of have mixed feelings on having to rely on devs to put ics on my phone. I have had mixed results with roms on my captivate

    But it is not a self-charging, solar powered screen, with a resolution of 1000k dpi, 32 core, 2 nm processor, running at 90 ghz per core. And it is not as thin as a sheet of paper, and as flexible! Hmmm, stupid SGN!

    But the sgs2 has better hardware and much better support.

    Yea, that's what I said what I said :)

    This has been debunked numerous times. Same CPU and clock rate. Different GPU with strengths and weaknesses in different areas. Overall, the two devices are comparable. However, if you want an HD screen, you only have one choice.

    the sgs2 has dual core exynos, the captivate is single core hummingbird how are they comparable? They aren't at all idk what you are smoking but it must be some good stuff to think the 2 compare.

    Put the weed down haha. He was talking about the Nexus vs. the SGSII, as was the other guy. I highly doubt he bought his Captivate since the SGSII came out.

    That's why it is a "leak" it isn't finished yet, the final version would not have those lines. Still seems pretty accurate.

    Another tweet from p3: P3Droid

    Let's hope this date sticks for the nexus if it doesn't new date moves to very late nov like the 31. And stock is more limited the earlier it launches. So get yourself for midnight ordering.

    I see now, you somehow thought that I was talking about the Captivate. I mentioned buying an unlocked Galaxy Nexus. You then said that the SGS2 was superior in terms of hardware. So, I'm not sure where you injected the Captivate, but I just assumed that you were comparing the SGS2 (phone you mentioned) to the Nexus (phone I mentioned).

    Anyway, consider the confusion cleared up. We both agree that the SGS2 > Captivate, and that the SGS2 is roughly equal to the Galaxy Nexus. No need for further debate :)

    True, while maybe not the best in every single catagory, you'd be hard pressed to find any phone that has all the features that the GNex does.

    I just meant the only dual core samsung lte phone on verizon. Didn't mean it in a bad way.
