had the HD2, didn't like it on a number of levels, primary was Win Mo -gave me a headache. Screen on the HD2 was nice but the samsung's is in a class by itself - so nice, including touch responsiveness etc, that i'm debating keeping the vibrant in spite of the GPS issue - like the earlier poster said - it's flaky at best right now, and it is an important feature to me. The fact that i'm debating or trying to convince myself to keep it in spite of the lack of reliable GPS should tell you everything.
as to the screen size, i actually like the samsung's size better - the HD2 i almost felt like i was holding a paperback book up to my ear. The samsung seems to be the "right" size, plus it's thinness makes it feel even more comfortable in your hand - i didn't expect that

there's a decent free app on android market called "color flash" that turns your screen totally white for use as a flash light - not as bright as the HD2's flash , but the app comes close in terms of lumens, it's just not as focus'd as with the HD2, but still very useable - went outside on a dark nite, steps below me were total darkness w/no moon, and the color flash app gave me enough lite to see the steps - and not too bad on battery drain - i ran it for five minutes and only measured about 2-3% of battery life
