    I just traded in the OG for the sky rocket today, the last day of my 30 days buyer remorse period. I have been looking into it for at least 3 weeks. I checked this forum numerous times daily for an aid in preparation for such an epic decimsion.

    I had seen the in store demo phone, but none were setup for moblie data, so I was unsure of what I was getting into. I took the risk and bought it. I do not live in an LTE area but my download mbs went from 3 - 5 on the OG to around 5 - 7. I have not noticed much f a lag. The battery gets hot, but being the first cycle l, I'm not to suprise. The battery life, however, is abysmal at the moment in comparison to the first one. On average my OG lived between 13 - 19 on a decent amount of usage. I do use juice defender ultimate. In the past, Ive seen it live for over 24 hours. Currently, the SR has been alive for 6 hours and has 19% remaining. Regardless, I'm being patient for a more accurate judgement. I do enjoy the screen size and lte because it was something I was expecting from the jump. The size is fairly comfortable.

    Ultimately, its a matter of preference. I've seen too many people talk down on the phone with quiet a level of passion. And I understand. I am a developer and am also quiet passionate. Had they done it right the first time it would not be so controversial. They both have advantages over the other. The OG has a better processor because it is better suited for the phone and a better battery life. The skyrocket has a larger screen, faster data, and visual voice mail which I missed from the iphone. I love this phone, and against most the hype it isn't bad. If you are buying it new I would just get the skyrocket, especially if you can get the discount. And if you have the OG good luck and Godspeed. Either way there still might be questions.

    I live in mount Vernon, AL which is a smaill rural town near the city of Mobile. Mobile is slated at the 112th city to get LTE which wont mean much to me. I'm getting either phone Friday the 18th and need some advice on which to get. Price is no option and I have unlimited data. I like to play a lot of games and multitasking is a big plus.I liked the visual voicemail of the iPhone and wondering does either OG or SR have it. I like the best phone for the money and want to do Skype and have the best Samsung has to offer. If anyone can please offer some pros and cons and personal opinions on what they would get or do have it would be greatly appreciated.

    The SR has vvm, you'll have to use google voice on the OG as there is no native vvm on the phone. As far as processor goes, I had the OG and now have the Sr. I can't tell the difference as far as fluidity, both are great. There are subtle differences apart from size. Lock screen makes a different sound, the capacitive keys on the SR are brighter, and the back of the Sr is more rounded (with a lack of texture on the back) makes for a slippery bugger if you're not careful. Obviously LTE is not of concern to you so that's a moot point.
