If you are in it for the development than SII has more than the Photon (even though quantity doesn't usually equal quality). Also, SII is faster specs and has the super amoled which is a plus for some that don't like the Photon's pentile screen. However, the Photon can utilize Tegra optimized games which may not run as well on the SII.
In my opinion the Photon is better build quality. Just feels more solid. Also, the SII cannot match the Photon's radio. Signal strenth is better from what I have comparted by at least 2 bars (comparing to the Epic Touch (Sprint)).
My opinion....sell it and keep the Photon.
