    I switched to a GS2 from an iPhone 4 as well. I'm not going back, either. The hardware is so much better, I love the big screen.

    Care to share why?

    So you went from the 4S to the SII back to the 4S?
    Yep, I went from iPhone 4 for 16 months, then iPhone 4S, then S2, now going back to the iPhone 4S.

    I loved the S2, but iOS fits my life better. I've always been a Macbook Pro user for years, plus having the iPads and all five iPhones over the years, I just got used to it.

    I was having problems with my S2, though. The first one stop making calls and the second one battery life only lasted 5 hours roughly, without widgets, e-mail turn off and brightness turn down. I just got tired of the hassle and wanted my iPhone back.

    Its a nice device, though.

    Transitioning from iOS software to Androids more open-source and customization-friendly interface felt very odd. With an iPhone 4, again, customization is limited to a few company-designated settings. The most you can do is shift your folders and applications around it makes you realize how brainless (or convenient?) the whole Apple process really is.

    I like that quote. She did the same thing you did but in reverse and loves it so far.

    Brailess or convenient? Basic or simple? Easy to use or boring? iOS or Android? Android all day for me. All day long. As one already said, to each their own.

    My 4s is going back today in favor of the SGSii. Rock solid device but after having a 3GS, 4 and now a 4S I'm bored silly with it. I hope it's not a mistake because I doubt Best Buy will let me swap again. I'm scared!

    I did it! I swapped my 4S for the Galaxy S II. Its awesome. I love the big, beautiful screen. So far the call clarity is good, signal is good and music playback through my bluetooth headphones is super. I'm so overwhelmed by customization options I'm almost catatonic! The real test will be tomorrow at work whether or not the phone plays nice with the wifi there. When I had a Captivate, I had a devil of a time getting it to work. I didnt' have any problems at home, just at work. After some reading I discovered that people were saying something about Cisco access points being a problem for the Captivate so hopefully that isn't an issue with the SII. I was able to connect the SII to my home wifi with no problem.

    I was a little sad to see the 4S go. Its a rock-solid phone. Too bad Apple won't let us customize it a wee bit. I would settle for changing the font and live wallpapers without having to jailbreak! So I guess this year Apple gets the OP and Samsung gets me!

    Enjoy your iPhone 4s. It is a fantastic device. I wish it would have worked better for me. I just missed the raw horsepower that the GS2 has. You will see what I mean by that after a few days.

    i had (still have) a 4s.. switched to GS2 and now seriously thinking about switcing back to 4s.. yes the big screen is GREAT and i like how you can customize but setting it up takes way to long, to much stress and work., 2 hours to set up contacts.. i miss the retina display.. i'm not saying SG2 is bad but i dont feel the love that everyone else does. and thats ok.. but i wonder what U mean by horse power.. in some ways the 4s seems zippier..

    (also had to pay full price for the SG2)

    I am making the jump once my 4S comes in.
    I have been an android user for quite a bit now and had a bunch of diff phones to experience. They are just getting a little old for me I guess. All hacked and rommed and such and although customizable, most of the customizations are shoddy and honestly I found stock is usually much better.

    I have never been an Apple sheep and always made fun of them. I took my gf's Infuse back the other day and got a normal 4. After a few hours of playing with it she likes it better than android , I tinkered with it a bit and think its nice, but I need more seat time with it.
    Not sure I will get that same affect and sure I will likely regret it, but Im in the mood to try some of the original coolaid I never dipped into yet and see what the hype is about.
    Siri is mad cool, but past that its gonna be hard getting used to a much smaller phone.

    Otherwise its compatible with everything under the sun like by double din in my car. Will feed nav to it and stream pandora and such. Even my bank has an iphone app. No chance in getting any love like that with Android unfortunately.

    Too many sheep out there to argue with. If you cant beat em. . . join em. hahahahahah
    We shall see how long it takes for me to come back..
    hows things going for ya?

    I thought the same. Was a tough week with the iPhone 4s for me. Just too much I like about android. And the speed of the GS2 is ridiculous.

    A lot of iPhone 4 owners didn't think that the 4S was a big deal outside of Siri. Personally, I love the 4S.

    The only reason I decided to skip on the sg2 and get the iPhone was because of build quality. I'm not a fan of the plastic feel.

    i agree the plastic backing.. not so much.. a nice metal would have been good..

    Is it OK that I use both an iPhone 4 (no reason to upgrade that to a 4S) and my new SGSII?

    The SGS is definitely faster, and the larger screen makes it a better web browser for me.

    But at the moment, I still like them both.

    i am missing my 4s so much.. still have it and running it off wifi.. or me the 4s seems faster.. and i love the BIG screen on the GS2 but i dunno.. i just aint feeling the love.. it takes TIME to set up everything.. no visual voice mail.. lost my banking app. the GS2 is a very good phone and i would recommend to another android person but idk

    I have also switched to a 4s. My Moto D2 was a great phone till the GB update. App compatibility and performance issues did me in. I was sitting on an upgrade for months and another coming in March so I will reevaluate at that time. I like Android in general but all these high end phones are being released with a poorly implemented OS. Over the last year with a smartphone I've had a chance to see what kind of user I really am. I want a solid reliable phone that I don't have to tinker with constantly. I also decided that I like my phone small and portable unlike the behemoths be released right now. How about a high end ICS phone with a 3.8 screen? I am also following next gen of WP phones as well. If you ever get the chance to use one please do. They are amazingly smooth!

    I can agree about the screen sizes being too big. Don't get me wrong, I like the screen size when I'm watching videos, but I don't like it when it comes to texting or using it as a phone. Having my iPhone and iPad seems to be the perfect combination rather than buying an oversized phone.

    if your contacts are in located in gmail then it wouldnt take anytime at all. Dont know about you but on my S2 I have visual mail. Honestly I think S2 is not for you it is best to go back to the Iphone 4s

    S2 doesn't have visual voicemail unless you use google talk or other app. I use google talk.

    Only thing keeping me from the iPhone is the FREE google navigation with awsome speech recognition that for some reason Apple won't even come close. I've searched for answers about why they won't do this, but have never got a clear answer. Even AT&T employees are vague and evasive about it when I ask them multiple times.

    There are free navigation alternatives for IOS. I personally use Telenav which is only $10 a year. It works well for me.

    I'm going back and forth, have a 3GS and 4, 3GS is jailbroken and love the way I have it setup right now. May upgrade to either the 4S or SGII since I don't know of any other new Android phones coming to AT&T. And sticking with them since we have grandfathered unlimited on all lines. The only thing I don't like about the Droids is a lot of the apps are unpolished and glitchy vs the similar or same offerings on iOS. But there's no jailbreak for the 4S yet and not sure when it'll be available. The new notification system is pretty slick when integrated with SBS and so customizable, a lot of new widgets are being developed for it on Cydia.

    The 4S is on back order right now, called all the stores around me and I'd have to order now and wait 2-3+ weeks. And I have a feeling the GSII will be around $50 or so as a special towards the end of this month like others have mentioned at Radio Shack and maybe other outlets which would be a hard deal to pass up.
