Samsung Galaxy Nexus or SII?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Currently on the fence for the two. My plan is to get a phone with 4g speeds but I've heard from some places that the SII doesn't support 4g, specifically from Tmobile's monthly 4g plan.
What would you guys choose? Just want to make sure everything is compatible with Tmobile's Monthly 4g plan.

Anyone have experiences with both displays? Which looks better?

Yes i do i would wait for the s3 to come out because the s2 is better then the nexus.
Also you might be surprised how long the windows phones have come.

I am currently on TMO's monthly 4G plan and am using a Sammy Exhibit 2. I will be switching to an S2 as the prices drop to something more affordable. I looked at TMO's site and the S2 is listed as a 4G phone. From the research I have done you should be able to use any TMO 4G phone with their monthly plans.

Well went through with the nexus, dont see myself upgrading for a while. To be honest, this is my first phone ever that didn't cost over $100.

While I like the Nexus I don't like that it does not allow for SD card support. Important for me in terms of backups and upgrading ROMs.
