Re: Keep the original or go with the replacement?
I suppose it's a matter of testing both units, and seeing which (if either) is more stable. As you noted, with the newest upgrades and after wiping your data (including apps I'm assuming?), the original unit became more stable.
A frequent finding is that app compatibility issues with ICS (assuming you're running it) have been one of the biggest causes of random crashes & reboots, so it could very well be that the data you removed from the unit is what's causing the problems. Also, the newer OTA's might have fixed some of those issues.
As ICS is still pretty new, and they're working out the kinks as we somewhat act as their guinea pigs, you're likely to get some random problems -- I certainly have -- and chances are the new unit will have similar issues, assuming you load it up exactly the same as the original. Though it may not.
Short answer? Uhh, I'unno. Lol. But test them each out, and see what results you get. Either way, post what your outcome was so we know.
