But the S4, 720p, LTE, NFC and all the other goodies are really tempting on the One X. Only issue is if I get the phone with the latest update, it can't be rooted... yet.
Anyone have any opinions. Anyone went from the S2 to One X and have opinions on it? I went to play with the One X but it's tough to base a decision without actually having the phone.
I have both yet I ended kind of going backwards. I owned an S2 sold it and ended up getting the HOX white when it came out. It is a GREAT device and of no comparison in many ways.
I always kind of missed my S2 though. I like the size the weight it is perfect in that aspect. I saw it just recently on at&t for $9.99 and a contract I said gotta have. Now that I have rooted it and messed around learning stuff I really do like it.
For me if I had to give one up it would be the HOX again though I think it is a personal choice one makes.
I am also thinking of the S3 but ONLY if it shows up in black at a decent price. LOL
PS. If you want to root and change out ROMS and Kernels to me the S2 is the keeper for this aspect. I just sold my Nexus also being the S2 is the same in many ways again IMO.
