    Hi. First post ever.

    I just bought the Samsung Infuse about couple weeks ago. During that time, Galaxy S2 came out in the U.S.

    So I was wondering if you guys can help me choose if I should keep the Infuse for the next couple years or get the Galaxy S2.

    The place I bought it from would allow me to exchange phones but with a $35 re-stocking fee.

    I like everything about the INFUSE except that the GPS (using Google Navigation app) is very slow and is unreliable. I used to have an iphone and I relied on its GPS a lot. But I do like android interface over apples.

    So if anyone has experience using Infuse AND Galaxy S2, can you guys give me some insight on which phone should I pick? (not worried about the higher price) Should I just stay with my Infuse? or upgrade to Galaxy S2?

    I use my phone mainly for texting, camera, internet, talking and GPS.


    Thanks in advance!

    I would say they're similar enough that you'd be fine either way, though as I understand the GS2's GPS is better.

    The GPS works great! If you use that often, take back the Infuse and get the GS2.

    If you paid with Amex they will refund the restocking fee with most of their cards.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Yeah GPS is HUGE for me so I need it to be pretty reliable. It looks like everyone agrees on the GPS aspect.

    You need to upgrade to an SG2. I purchasd the Infuse about 2 weeks before the Galaxy 2 was launched in the States...and what a mistake that was. GPS never tracked satellites. And when it did, it took forever. The Infuse slows down tremendously when more than 3 apps are open. It also used Froyo 2.2. Gingerbread is much more pleasing. For $50-$100, it'll be the best money spent. Also, let your retailer know that the GPS doesn't work and they'll waive the restocking fee.

    Besides the screen the GS2 is a better performer. Plus it has the latest OS installed and the infuse probably wont see ice cream sandwich.

    Get the GS2! It is a great phone. I had the Infuse and returned it for the Atrix and then got the GS2. Best decision I ever made. I runs circles around the Infuse, although the Infuse seemed to have better music audio compared to the GS2.

    Thanks for all your answers.

    I just did exactly that. Refunded my Infuse 4G (it was a legit phone too) for Samsung Galaxy S2 (holy crap, its super fast and the interface looks better)

    I have had both, the SG2 is well worth the upgrade.
