Yes, Anandtech posted an update regarding scrolling on the SGS2 specifically. I absolutely agree with you - he should touch it for himself.
In my opinion, I would hold off from the Bionic due to it's display. The pentile matrix display that it uses is horrendous when compared to the iPhone's Retina display and the Super AMOLED that Samsung uses. However, the rest of the phone is great and is a force to be reckoned with. Also, the Bionic is for Verizon only, and hiro_pro appears to want to stay on AT&T since he gets a nice discount.pikaporeon wrote:Without adding too much, i think the Droid Bionic is a better comparable to the S2

Android has been reknown for having beefier hardware and better tech specs, but because of [a multitude of excuses], it has also been notorious for having a variety of performance problems ranging from SCROLLING (how basic is that??) to MULTITASKING to network performance etc.

I honestly think that this one is too good to be true.
