I have to admit it just amazes me how some people complain about the build quality after they purchase this phone. I personally (sure, it's ownership biased) think this GSII is awesome and well built. The material used is basically the same but Samsung obviously built the phone to be lighter intentionally (no metal back, which had me spoiled also as I do like that on my Cappy) and more streamlined (back half of the phone is a lighter guage plastic and no longer a gun-metal grey color/finish, but the front/screen half appears to be the same as the Captivate)...it wouldn't be a GSII if they built it just like the first model now would it? And as for removing the cover, it is what it is...it's just simple not crappy, and a different style (just need to have one good fingernail). The phone is still a nice blend of power and finesse I have come to expect from the Samsung Galaxy line. I have enjoyed owning this phone albeit briefly, just as much as I have enjoyed owning my Captivate and have the oppurtunity to continue to use them both. All this being said I too am looking forward to the release of SGSIII and would hope to see a only a subtly different build style. Like the commercial says..."it doesn't feel like an upgrade if my phone looks the same!"
