Yep, its a good phone, as good as my iPhone.

I love this app, I spend ours on it. Not sure if it is on Android though?

It sums things up quite nicely!

S2 is a lot more expensive..offerred the HTC S or Galaxy S for free...so only a choice of these 2

Angry Birds
CoPilot -- satnav
Adfree -- removes Google ads embedded into some free apps like Angry Birds
eBay -- cos the eBay mobile site sucks
JustPictures -- cos the default picture viewer sucks (on my phone, anyway)
HomeSwitcher + Launcher Pro -- third party home screen. Better performance than the stock one imo. Nicer to look at too
Opera Mobile -- miles better than the default internet browser
PhoneUsage -- keeps track of how many minutes, texts and data I've used. Use it to make sure I don't use more than my allocated 500MB per month.
Root Explorer -- use occasionally for accessing the phone's file system.
SoundGarage -- third party app to access SoundCloud. The official one sucks!
Titanium Backup -- very handy app which can backup your other apps. Useful when switching ROM and you want to preserve your settings.

With the exception of the eBay app, I never download apps which just show one website. No reason to have a FB, twitter, BBC, etc app when you can just use an internet browser to access them all.
