NFC comes default on the Nexus, optional on that GS2.

Nexus: Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 Pure Google Phone.
GS2: Gingerbread v2.3 + TouchWiz UI v4.0

Go ahead, please continue.

I only find minor differences between the 2.

Here's the Nexus link:

Perhaps every way imaginable is an extreme statement.
But it clearly looks like the winner here.

But 1.5ghz dual vs 1.2ghz dual.
8mp camera vs 5mp camera
130.5g vs 135g
gorilla glass vs not
2mp front vs 1.3 front
1850 mAh vs 1750 mAh batteries...

It's not a massive difference, but a couple edging out across a few features and the Nexus no longer looks like it's the king.


I know MP isn't everything for the camera just like how GHz isn't everything either. I'm waiting for a good thorough review for both. But right now, I'm trying to figure out how to get my hands on the SGS II HD LTE.

Thoughts?

Since I'm not planning to use LTE, paying more I'm not going to use is pointless.

In Canada that phone has been on pre-order for 6 weeks and it's no where to be found.

It can easily be overclocked back to its native 1.5 GHZ, the cameras MP is a pointless comparison, I don't know many people who will print 16 x 20's from their phone.

The Gorilla glass is probably the only thing that I would consider better, but we don't know how good the glass is on the Nexus. Oh, and the lack of SD card is disappointing.

ICS looks great, who knows when the GS2 will get it.

I'm still gonna stick with the Nexus, but that's just me. If you want the GS2, go for it!
