    Galaxy S2 Skyrocket has a faster processor and larger bettery (1.2GHz vs 1.5GHz), both using qualcomm I believe, Skyrocket looks simalar to the T-Mobile version.

    Only thing that looks interesting on the Vivid is the 1080p recording at 60fps, but I'm guessing the higher framerate is at the expense of recording quality so I would still go with the Skyrocket.

    HTC Vivid is my choice

    Pros:
    HTC Sense
    HTC build quality and heft
    qHD resolution of 960 X 540
    Will probably get ICS before Samsung (given HTC track record)
    Prefer S-LCD to Super AMOLED (for true colors that aren't over-saturated)
    Better looking phone


    Cons:
    Processor speed (not likely to be noticable)
    Glossy plastic shows some smudges but just barely
    No NFC

    UPDATE: after having it for 24 hours I changed my mind on this...it shows a little bit of smudges but just barely. Not like the HTC Fuze at all. I'm very happy with the materials choosen
