    Hi ..

    So my Moto DEFY is pretty messed up .. Screen cracked .. body is in a miserable condition ..
    Basically it will cost a lot to repair this phone.. and ultimately futile.

    I have option of buying a Galaxy S II - spending like 12-14k.

    Is this a good option to consider .. or should I save up for a proper current gen Android phone..?

    Need to make a quick decision on this ..

    They just reduced the price on the S3 to around 30.5k. What's your current budget like?

    got 20k spare with me right now .. the Phone has been bother for many months so want to put it to rest.

    Right now the SII seems pretty decent especially given the extensive developer support for Custom ROMS.

    The Nexus 4 is still my must-have phone but im not lucky enough to score one.

    Galaxy S II is a pretty good phone. If u r getting it for 12-14k/- (Used or New?) I recommend buying it.

    Its kind of a refurb unit ..no warranty .. condition would be pretty good.. but cant say how long it was used for..

    Also I hear Sammy launched the I9100G variant with the OMAP 4430 ..

    Find a store that has 0% EMI ( I am guessing Digiworld or Vijay Sales ), make a DP, and get the S3!!!

    According to news reports from Samsung Israel, the S4 is around may 2013. You sure you wanna be 2 generations back??
