Default Get an Evo 3D or Galaxy S II?

So I was 99.9% certain I was going to purchase the Samsung Galaxy S II, but now that ive seen the evo 3d, im stuck between these 2 devices.

Spec wise there pretty similar

Both have 4.3" displays
Both shoot 1080p and have ffc
Both are 1.2ghz Dual-core
Both have 1gb ram
Both have hdmi out

Only obvious difference is evo has 3d cam and 3d display but galaxy 2 diaplay is wayyy batter in terms of quality not res.

Build quality of htc evo 3d will be better, im sure, but the GSII is like half the thickness and very light, so thats sort of a draw. Release is around the same time and im sure price wont differ that much.

Which one should a person choose considering the whole 3d thing is sort of a gimmick and im going to barely make use of it???

I had galaxy s and have desire hd currently and the s-amoled is much much better than the DHD lcd and the evo also uses lcd. On top of that, the s-amoled plus is big improvement over the samoled so its common sense. Also ive seen comparison shots of lcd vs s-amoled vs s-amoled plus vs retina and samoled plus is easily the best.

DONATE TO ME
HTC = Sense UI, if you buy LG, Samsung or any other manufacturer you will never see Sense roms. Look at Samsung Galaxy S series, 4G, Nexus S etc... all they have is AOSP roms like CM7, Miui etc.. no Sense due to close source from htc, now if you buy HTC phone you can have both worlds Sense UI and AOSP roms.

I think Evo 3d uses s-lcd.. which is better than the DHD lcd..

Qualifying question I have is: Do you know that the Galaxy S II is coming to Sprint (hopefully without a hardware keyboard)? If yes, will it come out before the Evo 3D?
Samsung Galaxy S3 ►Hey Sprint: Where's my LTE◄

Yeah, there was a dilemma at first but they confirmed our DHD's come with s-lcd.

about the release date from what Ive heard, the sgs2 is coming out for verizon, tmobile and sprint around june, and evo 3d is also supposedly coming out in june but I think it might be sooner since theres and htc event for the 12th or 14th and pre orders might start soon but im not sure if its for the htc pyramid or evo3d. So who knows maybe itll be out sooner

I Have an Epic right now... and honestly not even thinking about the SGS2 ..

Why the build quality is **** the keyboard causes the screen to wobble everytime i touch it.

Samsung sucks @ Updates...

the drivers are stupid...

alot more development behind the Evo...
