Just got mine today so here's some stuff you might wanna know from what I got so far:
-Camera can be used even below 15% battery until below 5% (could be because of Android version 2.3.4 vs 2.3.5)
-Graphics laggy while i9100 gives smooth video. (T989 Adreno 220 vs i9100 Mali 400MP)
-Color of screen less vibrant than i9100 (no color option like i9100)
(tested using same video comparison side by side)
-Tmobile software and Internet favorites unremovable.
-physical design is ugly unlike i9100
-Noticably Thicker than i9100
Rumor has it (from TMONEWSdotCOM... their source is the Officially Released T-Mobile Fact Sheet) that the T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S II is actually a Quad-Band 4G device (will ALSO work on AT&T HSPA+ UMTS Band II and V in addition to T-Mo's UMTS Band IV). Does anyone know if there's truth to that? I would love a "future-proof" device in case of a successful AT&T/T-Mobile merger

All of the angry/jealous owners of the original Galaxy S II are going to be busy down-rating this phone now. lol - Faster download speed (up to 42mbps), bigger screen, better benchmark = better Galaxy S II.
206 ppi pixe, it should be 316 like Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE or iphone 4 330 ppi pixel becz it make screen look like mirror real hd.

1850 mah battery according to specs on Sammie's website. ...I need to get a life. :-|
Video of T-Mobile variant on YouTube youtube.com/watch?v=5PRnMRrvAEA . It's already been released in Canada as Galaxy S II x.
This phone has high speed 1.5 Ghz but the truth should reveal... GS2 is way better than this phone because the processor brand is ARM Cortex-A9 while this Scorpion which i have it in Dell Streak and i also have Captivate ARM Cortex-A8 and believe me i ran Benchquadrant on both of them i got on Scorpion 1512 while in ARM Cortex 2130! Which both are 1 GHZ!
So it doesn't matter if 1.5 GHz Scorpion it matters the processor should be ARM Cortex-A9 1.2 with Exynos chipest
Also this version has low end GPU (Adreno)it's the same in Dell Streak but newer
Best of the GS2:
1.5ghz instead of 1.2.
Up to 42mbps connectivity.
1800mah battery (Sprint, too)
4.5" screen (Sprint, too)
I don't like the rounded edges, though.
