    I no longer have an option to purchase apps via my att bill (dislike). The messages app has moved from the dock (dislike). The phone is more round.. Eh.
    I do like the phone, though. There at just a few subtle differences that I don't like.

    1. Unlock your screen.
    2. Tap the Applications
    3. Tap the menu button located off-screen on the far left in the button row.
    4. Tap View Type
    5. Select Customizable Grid
    6. Tap the menu button located off-screen on the far left in the button row.
    7. Tap Edit
    8. Drag the desired icon into the dock to replace the unwanted shortcut.
    9. Tap menu again and tap save.

    You cannot change the application icon on the far right, but you can change the other three.

    I think the phone is great. I had the SG2 for about 3.5 weeks. It is every so slightly slower than the SG2 but nothing to cry about. The screen is great. It is actually whiter than the GS2 screen which is a plus. SG2 has a more blue tint to it. Not as thin, I did really like the battery cover on the GS2 more than this.

    Now I can't wait to hear when we will actually get ICS!!!! I want to see this thing scream a lil more.

    I just came back from the store, and I also noticed it was SLIGHTLY slower than the HSPA+ S2. As in occasionally it would slightly stutter when scrolling btwn pages or pinching and zooming in the browser. But, it did so rarely.

    Screen also didn't look as crisp as the HSPA+ S2. I compared both with auto brightness turned on. Perhaps there were other settings I missed, though.

    I didn't see any HSPA+ S2s at the ATT store. This makes me a bit concerned on how fast it will receive updates vs. the Skyrocket.

    I just picked up my SR on Thursday. This is my first android phone (though I do have 2 Honeycomb tablets) and I agonized between this and the OG SGS2. After fiddling with both at a store, the SR was my choice since I live in an LTE area and I could not discern any lag difference between the two. Maybe if I knew how to induce lag I would have seen it. The SR runs all of my media flawlessly.

    I do wish the SR had the OG's battery cover, since it is textured and looks better.

    I wish both had a real home button, but I guess apple is to blame for that in the US market.

    It would make sense for both to get ICS, as so many OG models have sold, so LTE was my deciding factor.

    I tried them both at the AT&T store and I did notice some lag on the Skyrocket but none on the SGSII. But the AT&T LTE speeds in Chicago scream. I have heard some rumblings about ICS making these dual core devices faster. We will see.

    I didn't see much lag difference. In fact they both checkerboard in the browser a bit.
