I love my Samsung Galaxy S Captivate, it’s one of the nicest phones I’ve ever owned, reviewed or used. Now comes the Galaxy S II, a phone that I think I need to get, but sadly I’m on AT&T which means I have to wait to get it, and I’m not due for a new phone on contract for a while which means I have to pay full price basically I think. Of course being on AT&T also means we’ll be behind with updates, the rollout for Froyo on the Captivate was ridiculous. I think it might be better to just get the unlocked version and not have to deal with AT&T at all in terms of updates, but that means paying a nice chunk of change out of pocket. Is it worth it? I would have to say maybe from my experience with the Captivate, it’s a great phone and I think the Galaxy S II will just be that much better overall. I have to remember to hit up Samsung to send me one out for review soon…
