Default T-Mobile Buying advice - no contract

Hello everyone,

I am on a T-Mobile month-to month plan with 4g, and I am looking to get an upgrade to my Samsung Exhibit II 4g. I don't want to pay more than $400 for a device, and I can't get one on-contract. I've been looking at the Nexus 4 and HTC One S. Are there any other good options? I've heard that the Nexus 4 doesn't have good battery life, and it's sold out everywhere. I'd be fine buying one used except for that I don't want to buy a stolen device that will be bricked by T-Mobile.
The phone that I want must have the following:
Not laggy
Decent battery life
Good Camera
16+ GB of storage (or less if it has a micro SD card slot)
Android 4.0 or higher

Any Suggestions?

Thanks,
Josh

I have moved this thread into the Device Comparison forums since you are going to be comparing some devices that fall within your price range and list of specifications.

I know the Nexus 4 is a really nice device, my friend has one and has said nothing but good things about it.

Even though the battery is nonremovable i have heard it is pretty good.

Thanks for your input. Maybe someone will make a battery extender case for it eventually.

It'd probably be considered a lesser device than the Nexus 4, but I really like my S2. Walmart is still selling them for 300 new, not much more than the low side of what they list for used.

T-Mobile Pre-Paid Samsung Galaxy S II w/ $30 Airtime Card: Cell Phones : Walmart.com

I went from a VM Optimus to an Exhibit ll to the S2. I still like the others but the S2 is so much more enjoyable.

I'm hesitant about buying another Samsung device because of touchwiz. What are the biggest improvements of the S2 over the Exhibit 2?
