    Well? I have enough for the phone, but I don't know if it'll be worth it to make the jump or how big of a jump in quality and durability the new phone will be.


    The new prevail came out but no 4G. I want to try out the 4G but I heard it isn't great.

    Do you have 4G in your area? If not, it wouldn't matter unless Boost is gonna upgrade your area in the near future.

    4G LTE Data Coverage (color purple) in both of my addresses.


    Are 4G speeds throttled also? Have a speedtest of it?

    What area are you in? I'll see if I can find out when 4G LTE is coming to your area....if so, I'd wait for a price drop or sale for the LG Optimus F7 or HTC SV One.

    The 4G for Boost is "par" compared to other 4G networks...the thing is that a lot of people don't experience 4G anymore though because of the new push for 4G LTE on all networks (Pre-paid included).

    If I were you, and you're having problems with your Marquee (like most Marquee users), I would spend the $150 on the S2. The LG Optimus F7 isn't going to have a major price drop (or sales) for sometime. It's going to stay $250+ for another 3-4 months still or longer. The S3 is not going down in price any time soon either. You could go with the SV One from HTC, but it just had a price drop and it went to $280.

    So overall...I'd say the S2 for $150 is your bset deal for a while.

    HTC One SV is a great phone.

    Very true, but for the price difference though the SV One isn't as fast as the S2 (with the exception of data speeds with LTE). On the other hand though if you're a music fan, the SV One has Beats Audio, which is more of a difference than most people think.

    If you're a music fan then get the SV One if you wanna cough up $280. If you're not though than the S2 is one hell of a phone, especially if you can find it for $150.

    I think you should wait a bit and go all out and spend your money on a nice phone that will last you many years compared to a phone that might not hold up after a year or so.
