    Ok so I have been going back and forth over my next phone and I need some outside opinions.

    I am using a prepaid T-Mobile service and I'm debating between the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Nexus 4. Its between these two phones because of the similar price points and vaguely similar specs.

    I know the Nexus has the quad core processor vs the dual core of the GS2 and the screen resolutions are different. I realise that the N4 is new tech vs the aging tech of the GS2.

    My problem lies in the fact that 4G coverage is spotty at best but 3G coverage is strong. That being the case data speeds can be slow at times making using the cloud storage a bit maddening. This makes having the ability to add a micro SD card to the GS2 for storage appealing. The N4 is beautiful tech but I can't help but feel the more practical solution is the GS2, so I'm looking for opinions.

    Keep in my I'm on a Galaxy Exhibit 4G at the moment so either will be a vast improvement!

    Thanks in advance!

    I've got both & IMO it would come down to how cheap you can get the S2, if you care about contracts & how often you like to change phones.

    The debate is between Nexus and S2 not S3. In the case of S2 versus N4 the nexus is literally my favorite device I have ever owned. A champion in performance.
