iPhone4S or Galaxy S2?

So it’s come to decision time – I’m giving my current Galaxy S phone to my little sister (so she can tether away to her hearts’ content). This leaves me with a dilema; what phone should I upgrade to?

Though I have recently purchased an Apple MacBook Pro, I am not yet ready to sign my entire technology stack off to them, and I’ve been really happy with my Android devices over the past 18 months. I’m loving the synchronisation between my gmail account and my phone, and it’s a really slick platform that I think is going to get better and better.

So all I need now is a Samsung Galaxy S2 case, and then I’m away.

I’m not sure anyone else would suggest going for the iPhone 4S – it just looks like too much – the tariff will be 33% more if I go for that, and with a 24 month contract, it’ll be out of date and crippled come the end of it.

Is there any new phone to be released that I’m missing?

    I have decided to jump the apple ship and go for android. Android has come on leaps and bonds and in my opinion is a a true iphone competitor now. Especially seeing as iPhone will most likely be next year now, i would say Samsung S2 is the way to go.

      I’ve had a brief look at the Galaxy Nexus – and can only hope that Ice Cream Sandwich comes out for the S2 asap.  The S2 has been a great phone so far, there are things on it that are so much more intuitive – despite it being pretty much the same software as the Galaxy S.  The difference is the latency.  Everything happens nice and fast, so there’s little waiting around for the UX to load.

      I’d go with huawei ascend g300 – it’s cheaper and better :)
