S2 Question (Upgrade Advice)
Okay, here's the question:
Suppose someone meets this criteria:
- Owns S1
- Loves the way his S1's screen feels; the click is JUST right with just enough tactile feedback - has the reassuring snap of a true hardware button across the entire screen
- App memory is not an issue, has plenty of apps installed and is sitting at 30.6MB steady; actually plans on uninstalling some rarely-used apps
- Would most likely NEVER use wifi for the purposes others seem to want to use it for (simulataneous voice and data) - if I am on the phone, I don't WANT to be interrupted
- Is perfectly happy with the performance of 22.214.171.1248
- Would have to pay full price for an upgrade
My question is, is there ANYTHING about the S2 (taking all of these things into consideration) that would make a full-price upgrade worthwhile? I request that only folks who actually OWN a S2 reply; as I am looking for opinions based on real-world experience, and not what someone read in another thread.
The person I am talking about it myself, and personally I am currently planning on spending my money on the new Motorola Droid when it is released; I am just seeing if there is any reason I should change my mind.
NOTE: the Droid's Exchange Activesync implementation would be a huge PLUS to me.

IMO, no, its not worth paying the full price for. I love the S2 it really is a nice phone and a solid improvement over S1. But after having the phone for a little bit, no way would I pay for $500 for it
Dave, I was in same boat until my storm started freezing the click. Like it would not type or click unless I randomly click on screen quite a few times.
Screen. Transitioning to storm 2, at first I felt that my click was same as first storm. As I used it more, it actually felt more and more soft and I cannot tell you how happy I am to have an even click all throughout the screen. No dead corners. Its a weird feeling as I am using very little pressure to type. So I am pleased.
OS. Yes it has bugs, but I feel that it runs better than storm1 .323 did. Just want a leak so my berry weather would update. .
Memory. It really helps the performance and doesn't leak. Plus all the apps and themes I can now load and not worry about them taking up memory.
Overall design. Improvements such as changed location of speaker is a positive change as I would not hear my phone when it was in my purse. The battery door hinges gone is another big things, as my battery door would open every time I put my phone into a pocket or a purse pocket...with storm2 that issue is completely gone. I also love the improved look of integrated keys and darker bezel.
I hope this helps ya. I am happy and this is totally how storm1 should have launched.

You could always buy the phone try it until the MotoDroid comes out and if you don't like it or you're not impressed take it back (you have 30 days) and get the droid
Also, do you know if the droid will sync email with aol and yahoo as easily as the BlackBerry?
The Droid will be a nice phone for sure, but no one does email like Blackberry. The Droid will have push for Gmail but for everything else it will be pull
