i had (have) a Storm, Storm 2, and a Torch. I liked the Storm series and still would be using a 2 if my insurance deductible hadn't doubled. The Storm's problem at the time was the OS and low device memory. Yeah some encountered hardware trouble as far as the click screen (which I like), but mostly it was OS problems. I wasn't one that had problems, didn't have QuickPull on the 2 and rarely did battery pulls on the 2 (did evrythang on S1). I also didn't overload it with unnecessary apps. S2 performed when I needed it.
That being said my Torch blows both of them out of the water. If I knew OS7 was this much better I would've switched a year ago. Faster browser, more app memory, and much more stable OS. Everyone I know that switched to Apple or an Android phone can't believe how good thls phone is. IMHO IF your getting the Storm 2 for free, try it. If you have to pay more than $50 for a S2, don't. Get a Torch. I bought my Torch, NIB, for $200.00 on EBay. Worth every dime. I've also seen the Torch for $19.00 w/ contract at Wireless Soloutions(?).
I must admit that I do miss the click sometimes.
