This is because of the Galaxy Nexus & also a few other phones are about to get released. They see that the phone will get sold on a lower price & so they lower it & so doing that will give them more money.. Rogers stays with the same price until they decide to change it.

I've been following all these SGII LTE threads since the beginning, but never decided to post until now.
I'm pretty surprised to hear a lot of people having issues with this phone; from battery life, to screen problems. It seems to be a problem affecting only a small batch of phones. I could be wrong about this but from my experience, the SGII has worked pretty flawlessly.
Battery has lasted from 16-20 hrs from heavy use (downloading, browsing, e-mail, texting, calls). Even longer using Edge, but Edge is slow as balls. Battery is currently at 29hrs with 26% left (moderate use today, 6hrs is from me sleeping).
And no screen problems here. Tried replicating it from the links posted in the other thread. Changed backgrounds, brightness, lighting, and still nothing.
Thought I'd just share my experience so you guys know that the problems don't affect all SGII's.
