I'm having to shop ebay for a phone because my GS2 is wigging out, and I'm not due for an upgrade til May. So I'm looking for a temporary phone that is solid and stable and has good battery life. I'm kind of confused about one thing. Was there another model in between these two? If so, please discuss that one, too. One of the reasons I'm looking at Motorola is that I've only owned Samsung phones since smartphones came out, but all I had for several years before that were Motorola phones, and they were solid! I'd like to try Motorola or HTC. I'm not pleased with HTC taking away removable batteries and micro sd slot.
