    Since we're on the topic of prime vs gs2, can someone tell me what the advantages of having vanilla over a skinned device are (besides getting faster software updates). I actually think a skin improves the phone's functionality...Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Some dont like skins because they slow the phones down compared to a vanilla device although most would never notice the difference if they never had a vanilla device.

    I will agree with you on your assessment of the skin adding functionality. The problem I have with them is that they can be plain ugly. The new Blur is certainly better looking in my opinion but still lacks polish. The new touchwiz appears to be leaps and bound better than 3.0 but I can't comment much more on it because I haven't used it.

    But yeah I will agree they do add more functionality.

    At the very least I think Touchwiz 4.0 has proven this false. I, myself, find the newest version of Moto's UI to be pretty zippy as well. The skins are becoming improved thanks to more efficient coding and better hardware.

    I don't mind the skinned UIs so much as the bloatware. I hate the fact I can't decide on what apps I choose to keep or remove from my phone.

    I have a funnyittle feeling that the leaked Sammy LTE slider is gonna be our GS2. I bet that the specs that were leaked with it are not right.

    Why was CK banned? He seemed to be a legitimate source of scraps of info on the vzw sgs2.

    I agree but he asked and that is what most people would say without really knowing that it isnt necessarily the skin slowing the phone down since the sgs2 has no lag whatsoever with touchwiz. It is all about how they code it and the hardware to handle it.

    I am hoping that we get some actual news on either the Galaxy S II or the Nexus Prime soon. I would love to have some concrete news on either.

    I am also curious as to why CK was banned. Seems like it came from nowhere.

    I know he hung around the bionic forums and some people didn't like him there but who knows I agree it did seem to come from out of left field.

    Probably just a temporary ban for CK...a slap on the wrist, if you will.

    7 pages later, I'm just hoping it was a Freudian slip.

    All I know if my current phone is on it's last leg, so this thing needs to land stateside soon or I'll have to get something else. I'll be posting a picture of the pathetic thing in the contest, I feel like I might have a good shot at winning it. Heck, it might not be a GSII but I'd be thrilled with a Droid 3!

    So because this day was kind of slow I decided to try my hand at FCC snooping. I had heard that the site was ridiculously hard to use, but that is a massive understatement. Does anyone know how to actually find anything useful on this site?

    I decided to start with just finding the released sprint phone details to learn how the site works and I wasn't even able to find that. I had the ID number and the product number and even with both of those I was never able to find the documentation on the sprint version of the SGSII. How the **** does that site work?
