Now I'm back to square one.. GALAXY S2 or iPHONE 4S?!?!? I honestly could go either way and be happy. iPhone has a lot of nice things, Siri looks exceptional, but I don't know how much actual functionality it has for me. Then the Galaxy S2 looks phenomenal, but I don't know if I really want to deal with the constant editing, and rooting(of course I would root!) Changing Android OSs, and other stuff..

I need to check the two things out at the store..
You would had gone for Samsung Galaxy S2 before summer months ago, I bought one in July. Android already has Siri app called Vlingo Virtual Assistant but here also other great app on Android Market called Speaktoit Assistant has more commands and better functionality than either Siri and Vlingo.

I read iphone 4S reviews and looked at photos samples, it was nice and on par with Galaxy S2 but the 1080p HD video samples are not as great quality as Galaxy S2. I watched iphone 4S night video samples on youtube, Galaxy S2 has better video camera quality in night shots than iphone 4S.

Go for Galaxy S2, it has bigger 4.3 inch screen than iphone 4S 3.5 inch screen and you can root it and install ice cream sandwich ROM soon. Also it has better battery than iOS 5, my mate updated his iphone 4 to iOS 5 and found out the battery only last 7 hours, missed some urgent sms texts while he at work on 15 hours shift. After I updated Galaxy S2 to Android 2.3.4 and received some sms texts plus wifi on to download apps, the battery last 10 days. Impressive.
