    No, he means he could care less.....grammar police...geesh
    I'm going to deputize myself here too - sweetmonster is right. If you could care less, then you must care. If you couldn't care less, there is no lower level of caring so you must not care at all. The confusion is understandable since it's a very common mistake.

    You guys really need your phones, because you're nitpicking the dumbest things. It's a common expression, not a mistake... Kind of like how "disrespect" became a verb.

    This was my point...when I made my post I was being sarcastic. Seriously, people need to get a life when they feel the need to correct people's spelling and grammar on forum like this. If this were a writing forum it would be appropriate, but here it's not.

    Yup, not really a big deal at all. Back to the topic at hand.

    My HTC Hero is so bloated and falling apart so I will be getting the S2. I have waited long enough. I almost got the Photon, but had doubts on that. The S2 will have plenty of support (ROMs, hacks,etc) and has good specs.

    I've said before the carriers/manufacturers don't give any solid information because if they did, everyone would hold out and wait to buy new phones. My guess is the Prime will not get to Sprint this year.

    And the dumbing down of America continues.

    Saying 'I could care less' when you mean you couldn't care less makes NO sense. It is literally saying 'I actually care" (non-sarcastically) instead of I don't care.
    This can't be likened to using disrespect as a verb. The analogy fails.

    One does not need to be on a writing forum to write correctly or coherently. The other day I heard an ESPN anchor use the word 'irregardless'. Just awful.

    Psh! Who wants to go to class and learn grammar when you could sit at home and collect free money instead!

    I bought a pre 2 from the fire sale and will be converting it to work on sprint as I love webOS, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't extremly tempted by the gs2 and Prime. I will prob stick with the pre 2, wait for the prime to come out and see just how amazing it is.

    Good point.
    I get my upgrade in January. By then the Prime will be out so I will have the luxury to compare them side by side. But from what I have heard, I think I would have waited anyway. I like the idea of the Prime having better resolution and a HD screen and that there is a good chance it may have a smaller footprint than the SGS2 because of the lack of capacitive buttons. If the Prime does not have an SD card, I am not sure I can live with that but then again, I am not an application hog either.

    The NP hasn't been announced. So the specs out on it are still just Rumors. I hope it gets the HD screen but not official yet... Im getting the GSII on Sprint and when this comes out ill just add aline to checkit out and keep it if i love it...SD card isnt a killer for me since cloud service will be the future and my 16gb sd card in my epic still has 9,5 gbs left..

    By the time Prime gets here, the upcoming Galaxy III would have quad core, usb 3, projection screen, etc, etc. and so on with Prime 2 or Nexus 4 or etc, etc.

    Err, that is the point I am trying to make in response to the thread title whichi is what my post is about. Perhaps you misread my post. I mistakenly from your previous post that you meant the Nexus Prime was a sure thing for Sprint already.

    At this point the SGS2 is what I've been waiting for and will more than suit my needs. It's a proven phone that, despite being released internationally 5 months ago, still blows the pants off of every other Android phone on the market.

    Wait for the Nexus if:

    -You want vanilla Android, and guaranteed software updates right when they're released.
    -You want NFC.
    -You can wait until 2012 for a possible Sprint version. It will probably happen, but remember the Nexus S 4G took a while to come out after the Nexus S.
    -You want an HD quality screen.
    -You're willing to bet on vaporware (although I admit that I happen to believe all of the rumors about the Nexus Prime myself lol).

    Technology improves everyday and like many have already mentioned you'll never buy anything if you keep waiting, but hey in this economy sometimes it's a good call to hold out for a while if what you've got is working fine.

    One thing that I find very appealing about the SGSII is that the device is proven. It's been out for a couple of months now in Europe and we know exactly what the hardware and software look like and we know that they both work extremely well.

    With the Nexus Prime we have no solid details and no guarantee that the phone wont have technical issues when it comes out. I know that you wouldnt expect problems from a Google phone but take a look at some Nexus S reviews. Even after all this time that phone is plagued with reception issues that stem from the design of the antenna. Im not saying the Prime will have the same problems but just using it as an example to show that even Nexus phones can have design flaws.

    The SGSII is a known commodity with no major flaws to speak of.

    Some specific concerns that I have about the Prime:

    It has a 4.6 screen. I know everyone says that the lack of physical buttons will prevent the phone from being too big but I need to see that first. I have major doubts about that and I dont want a huge phone. The size of the SGSII is as big as I'm willing to go.

    The Nexus S didnt have removable/upgradeable memory. I would expect that the Prime will remedy that situation but until we know for sure this is a minor cause for concern.

    When will it be released? Who will release it? By the time it comes out, wont there be some other next big thing on the horizon that will dwarf its specs? I don't want to get caught in that cycle where I never end up getting anything because there is always going to be something that looks better on the horizon.

    The SGSII is an incredible phone. Current consensus from reviewers is that it's the best android phone ever made. I think that's good enough for me.

    while i didnt agree with the usb storage on the nexus s, after copying over my sd card, its nothing to use as a reason NOT to get a nexus, sd cards can go bad, can go corrupt, and can be easily stolen.

    only real issue i have with the nexus is the NO LED light, its just a nice thing to have.

    add to the list NO carrier ID/carrier bloatware.

    the instant updates is a real good thing to be honest, i mean im ready running 2.3.5/.

    Ha ha I hate how my post becomes slightly redundant by the time I edit it, oh well. I guess it proves our point about getting caught in that endless upgrade cycle. You know it's bad when even your comments become "obsolete" in mere seconds in this day and age.

    I really want the next Nexus device, but there is just no word if Sprint will get it soon, or next May 2012, like the last Nexus-S. For now I will happily sell my Nexus-S 4G for the new Sprint Galaxy S2.

    So you can play the waiting game forever, and never get anything new. Why get the Droid-Prime, you should just wait for the Galaxy S3 rumored to be out earlier than normal next year, with QuadCore, or skip that and just wait for the Motorola Nexus-Four.

    The Droid-Prime will only be on Verizon to start, and there has been ZERO specifics if it really will be out in October, could be December release like all other Nexus launches. And it being made by Samsung will follow same trend as last year. The Nexus-S was just a slightly pumped up Galaxy S1, just running the newest Android OS stock with no bloatware, but hardware wise it was not radically different.

    Rumors are the Droid-Prime will also be a Galaxy S2 based phone, just clocked at a little higher speeds, and better screen, but not night and day better. And of course it will be running Android 4.0 But the XDA crew will get Ice Cream running on Galaxy S2 based phones first I am sure. So a Droid-Prime running Android 4.0 vs a Galaxy S2 phone running Android 4.0, I doubt they will perform that much different, most likely be very similar.

    The only difference will be HD screen and nfc I think. Everything else can be done through rooting. Overclocking cpu, ice cream sandwich, etc.

    I'm fortunate that I have a business account and only have a one year contract. I just finished my last one with my Epic 4G and will most likely be getting the SGS2 Epic Touch. Worst case scenario, the Nexus Prime comes out and is a killer phone, I'll only have to wait a few months to get one. But then again, who knows what new phone will be in the works by then? Epic 4G II anyone?

    I'm new to Android. Is there a way to put vanilla Android OS on a phone with a carrier overlay, for example, the GSII?

    I assume it requires rooting. Is the GSII likely to be rooted?
