Will S2 definitely be available on AT&T? Saw a rumor, but nothing concrete. Also, when will either phone be available??? Was torn between the infuse and the atrix. Was going with the infuse as long as it's not more than a few weeks later than the atrix (3/6). But now would rather the S2, but again, not going to wait until summer to make a move. Why can't Sammy or AT&T announce something? Why is Sammy waiting until everyone makes a move to the atrix, iphone, inspire, or something else?

It WILL work on att and their 4g
That is the International version that they have been showing and should be available in early march from what I have heard
only problem might be that you cannot get an upgrade price and have to order it from samsung
The ATT version (captivate for galaxy S 1) will probably be summer

I would take the Infuse for sure. I prefer large phones for movies, GPS, browsing etc... and I don't play 3d games on my phone. I'll play Settlers of Catan (board game turned app) and even that would be better on the bigger screen.

Physical size is not an issue for me as long as its thin and fits in my pocket without making me look like I'm carrying a box of Mac n Cheese in there.

I'll take the S2...over the infuse anyday. Compare the specs and Im sure most will agree.

I'll be getting the Infuse when it comes out in a few weeks but I'll still be getting the SG2 when it comes out. Hopefully, I won't have to get the international version of it but knowing my luck, I'll probably have to do it.

Spec wise I would agree but playing the Atrix and looking at its specs. I thought it would not be as laggy and fly but it lags alot. Dont get me wrong its a great phone. Maybe the lagging, will change once its update with Gingerbread, idk. Hope the S II is better than my crrnt Galaxy Cappy, u know GPS, updates, bugs etc... without worrying abt an update to fix major problems which i believe were hardware related...anyway we'll see.

Is that an Infuse in your pocket, or are you glad to see me? :)

I actually had a Dell s5 wasn't ALL that bad, so I'll probably go with the Infuse. I like the bigger screens too. Like the Atrix for the finger swipe and all but it's too small.

The dual core of the S2 is a huge difference, but I never heard anyone complain about lag on the Galaxy S1.

My big question for everyone is, do you think that a screen that large with a resolution of 800x480 will look pixelated or not as sharp as it should? Or would you prefer with samoled+ with a higher-res screen?

I don't know that dual core will make a 'huge difference', I think it depends on what you use your phone for, personally I don't game much and even that is dependant on the graphics components as well. I think where dual core may really help is battery life though maybe not until software is improved to take advantage of it even further. The S2 may be more future proof and work better toward the end of a two year contract, and if I had the choice I might take it, but I'm going to pick up the Infuse and I'm sure I will be happy with it.

As for the resolution, right now I'm comming from a Palm Pre that has a dpi of 186. The Infuse will have a DPI of 207 if my calculations are correct. I've never thought the Pre's resolution was low, and with the Infuse I would assume with the larger screen I will most likely be holding it farther away from my face as well so the size of the pixels will be even less of an issue. While a higher resolution screen would be welcome, I'll take the step up with Super AMOLED Plus and really black blacks. Higher resolution would also result in lower battery life, so for now I'll be content with 800x480. Maybe in two years I'll pick up a phone with a 960x540 or 1280x720 Super Duper AMOLED Plus Plus screen, but hopefully by then the battery life will be increasing more do to improved screens and processors.

Yes I rather have a dual-core Tegra phone instead of a single core Hummingbird. And I also rather have a 4.3" versus 4.5". 4.3" is the line where anything bigger is a joke.

It shouldn't have that great of an effect. Higher resolution is, obviously, always better, but the Charge (which has the same screen as the S2) has gotten great reviews for its screen. There are a lot of other factors that go hand in hand with the resolution, and Samsung (and HTC) seem to have gotten on the right track even with the WVGA resolution.

From what I hear Samsung wanted to stick with the 4" screen size but couldn't because the SAMOLED+ has to be physically larger due to the 12 sub-pixel technology. Regular SAMOLED has 8 sub-pixels. I think that is a HUGE factor in why it stays sharp (and looks even sharper than the 4" SAMOLED).

So given that I would think that a SAMOLED+ display would be somewhere between 4.5"-5.0" at a 960x540 resolution. Now THAT would be the ultimate display. (on a side note, and I'm biased of course, the G2X has the best regular LCD display that I've ever seen on an Android phone).

This.

Samsung is changing manufacturing methods for the next generation SAMOLED screens to allow for a much higher pixel density, which will also allow for smaller screens.
