If you're in an area with full LTE coverage, it is SIGNIFICANTLY faster than HSPA+. 30mbps is not unheard of. 5-10mbps pretty typical.

The glass on the N4 can easily be cracked. Go to xda and you will see some guy posting pics of his N4 with a crack screen. He didn't even drop the phone, it broke inside his pocket that had nothing inside.

Yeah some guy. The guy that breaks the screen is going to post and complain not the guys that did not break it. If the glass breaks like that you can easily get it RMAed. Physical damge from drops can be spotted even without looking at the glass.

I don't get what you mean, I'm talking about what TouchWiz, Sense etc. add over "stock"/AOSP Android e.g. comparing the Galaxy Nexus with 4.1 to the Galaxy S3 with 4.1, in my opinion TouchWiz doesn't add anything decent. You get all the gimmicky things like "S Voice" or whatever, and then it replaces everything (launcher, icons, stock apps like messaging, phone, browser and so on) with new versions that I don't think are improved in pretty much any way. There are tiny tweaks here and there but not enough to make it worthwhile if you ask me.

Yeah I wish I could change my SGS2 to a LG Nexus 4.

Galaxy S2 is still pretty good, even my Sensation (similar hardware but worse developer support by a long shot) is still going really nicely, you just need the right ROM biggrin.gif

Plus, if you wait until the next generation, it will be a much bigger upgrade thumb.gif

Any timeline on next generation? And what so big coming?

You could fetch at LEAST £400 for that S3 on eBay. There are S2's going for about £300 brand/like new.

But for me, the lack of SDcard slot kills it.

Plus I really like my S3.
