This is going to be a long post about the type of user I am, so I can get the best advice on this. This is a big deal for me. What I'm looking for is advice from that kind of user experience information you can't get from the store or from internet reviews. People who live with these devices and use them on a daily basis. I have never had an expensive phone. I've been tied to Centennial since '01. I had a Kyocera, Qualcomm, some really bad flip phones, and now an LG Tritan (a truly miserable phone, I'm on my third one). I never had money for more than just a very basic plan but now i have a job and I can finally get an "adult" phone (i'm 27, long overdue). A lot of my phones have died on me, I am not very careful with them. I've dropped everything I've owned. My other problem is perspiration and humidity where I live. I've had a couple of phones die on me because I put them in my pocket and the humidity gets inside them. And I've killed some cameras at the beach. I have an iPod Touch Gen 2 that I handle very well and I truly love. I've dropped it a couple of times, ran in the rain with it and not taken very good care of it and it works great. I also have a rooted Nook Color and I am in love with, I can work all the widgets and the wallpapers and it looks tremendous. I think both app stores are very well stocked. I know my way around Android very well now. It's been my training wheels so to speak. I text a lot. I take pictures. I like to listen to music and have uploaded everything I own to Google Music. I've got Netflix. I care about battery life but it's not a deal breaker, my current phone gets 40 minutes of battery life. My current MicroSd is 2GB, so I'm used to a lot of storage, I can curb myself in that aspect. My iPod is 16GB. Hell my laptop is 60GB. So I'm always strategically close to outlets and always carry a charger (But I'm living like a miserab over here.) I have an HTPC at home and all current generation video game consoles, I don't know if that matters. I use Facebook constantly and GMail. I only share pictures on Facebook. I have no brand loyalty (I own stuff from Sony, Vizio, Samsung, Apple, so there's no specific "ecosystem" set up at my house). The international version of the Galaxy S2 and Droid RAZR are my two "top of the line" options. I am moving to Claro (in case there's a device there I haven't considered). I know there's no such thing as a perfect phone. My concern is with the software that they put over the phones. I have never worked with neither of them. My Nook is understandably buggy and I've had to force turn off a couple of times. Battery life would be nice. Durability (I have seen those drop tests and i'm impressed with the S2). Looks. Camera quality. And how smooth the user experience is. If you're still reading you're a very cool person and I would appreciate your advice. PS The dark horse here would be the iPhone 4S since I can get it for $99 and unlimited data for $85.
