The Tour isn't giving me a sense of "stablility/reliability". Sure more people post their problems than their good experiences....but still. For all I know the Storm2 will be even worse.
I see a lot of shrugging off of the Storm as if it doesn't do everything the Tour does. For "fun/personal use"....as if a mature adult couldn't possibly use a touchscreen and maintain their dignity.
I use my phone for lots of emails and texting. As far as I can see I'm gaining a larger screen, WiFi, more memory, and a few other things in exchange for the loss of the hard keypad.
I'm no fan of touchscreens. I love my Curve keypad. I wasn't as fond of the Tour's, but I'm sure I would adjust easily. Maybe I'm giving too much credence to the 3 YouTube videos from that annoying guy, but the Storm2 seems to be a vast improvement from the Storm1...especially the touchscreen.
As of now I'm leaning Storm2...but that changes daily. I'll likely get the Storm2 and give it an honest go, and ditch it within 30 days if I don't like it.
