    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.

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