Google Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away, there were two mobile operating systems. One of them was designed for mobile from the ground up; the other was trying really hard to copy its older, desktop brother. One was limited in functionality, inflexible and lacked multitasking, but was very efficient, fast, and easy to use. The other had everything and the kitchen sink, was very flexible and could multitask, but had a steep learning curve, was inconsistent, and not particularly pretty.

Now, is this phone a copy of the iPhone 3GS? I have both, and the answer is an utterly clear and straight "no". If you believe it is a copy, even after holding the Galaxy SII in your hand, then you are provably wrong. This is not an opinion. It's fact. The two phones are entirely different in every way, and from every angle. Only one thing is similar, and that's the chrome rim - and even those two are different in shape.

The att s2 is a little more square than the tmobile version. Att also has the galaxy s2 skyrocket, which is a 4g lte s2 with a 4.5in. screen.

As for crapware, on my s2 I was able to remove whatever I wanted without rooting the phone. I guess thats another att specific thing.
