    This is true. I tried vlingo on my storm 1 and the only reason I didn't keep it is because I needed to free up some memory at: That shouldn't be a problem with the S2. It definitely gets better the more you use it.

The only issue I had with the Tour was the darned trackball. So I waited and got the S2 off of eBay a couple weeks before Xmas. I had the same issue with it as with the S1. I love the new screen, memory and features, but typing on a touch screen is not for me (finger tips are too big). I just can't deal with constantly having to correct my typing. So I'm back to my trusty Tour. Also, the Tour is much more responsive than either the S1 or S2. I've kept the OS updated on the S2 with every leak or hybrid I can find and it still isn't as responsive. The only thing I miss between the Tour as the S2 is the screen. But I'll sacrifice that over the ability to type faster. Hope this helps your decision. Bottom line, if you like features stick with the S2. If you like utility get a Tour. The S1 is not an option for me.

    I have to agree with you Bobby, even though I never tried the S2. I had the S1 and it made me crazy most of the time. I upgraded to the Tour and love it. Sold the S1 on Ebay less than a week later, don't miss it a bit. Fortunately my Tour has not had any trackball issues.

    ...yea, that is one of my biggest complaints with my S1, not enough memory!

    With vlingo and drivesafe.ly installed I have very little room left for other apps. I am constantly deleting this or that to make room to try something new.. however, I can say that I value these two so much that I never remove either one of them (..there are not many apps that I can say that of! ).

The first hybrid I used was Ooak's and it made all the difference, it still is strange that the OS can impact the buttons and screen click in the S2.
    Totally agree. Because, when is "stock" ever any good...

    With latest offer I had from VZW, snagged Storm2 for $129 (1 year early upgrade). After using the phone for a couple days have to say I was happy with my original Storm. The Storm2 is an improvement with the additional memory, touchscreen and WiFi is a bonus. I wouldn't have paid retail, and was just planning on waiting for my 2 year upgrade to come around, but the price was now reasonable and went for it and so far I'm happy I did.

    The differences between the Storm and the Storm II are immense. I went from daily battery pulls, to only pulling when I install an OS or theme. Memory, screen quality, typing quality, etc. just to name a few improvements keep my on the S2 awaiting the S3.
