    You just had to ask me this didn't you? Lol

    This is such a tough call. I was just saying in the mod forums that I was very disappointed that the SII wasn't coming to Verizon but it made my decision easier. Now that its announced I am literally torn betweeen the Targa and SII but i am leaning towards the SII at this moment. This will be the best Android handset of 2011 in my opinion with the Targa right on its heels.

    I just don't know to be perfectly honest. What a hard decision this will be.

    I was staunchly for the Bionic but now after hearing the galaxy s2 is coming to VZW and reading up on the specs, i think i might actually go with the sammy. what do you guys think the dev community is gonna be like for it? and does samsung lock their bootloaders? I literally have no knowledge of samsung phones.

    That is how I feel. I was all about the bionic then along came the S2 to Verizon and it got me thinking. The S2 looks great. I am torn.

    The Galaxy S2, hands down. That phone has specs, looks beautiful and is a performer. Winner across the board. I was leaning towards a couple others, but after seeing this, I'm holding out for the Galaxy.

    There is only 1 thing that frightens me about this phone. Updates!!! They have always been slow giving Samsung phones updates or not updating them at all.. I would choose it over the Bionic but with the update issue or not getting one at all bothers me...

    HTC's battery woes have kept me at bay.... but I have grown to appreciate Sense UI.

    ... I don't think Samsung does well with updates but the specs on the SII are too good to ignore... at least for me

    Out of the available skins Sense is by far the best with the new Blur right behind...

    How does Samsung and Moto compare on Talk quality & Radios? I heard Moto can really pull in the signals; I use mine foremost as a phone and need good reception and sound quality - speakerphone too.

    So is the S2 on VZW definitely a 4g? I haven't done much researching into it because I thought it'd be coming out later in the year. If so, I just might have to consider holding out for this if it's coming in May.
