SGS2 hands down. Nexus S is not even a worthy comparison and already somewhat outdated. Next best alternative imo is Moto Atrix.

There's no competition here at all really. Galaxy S II is probably the best phone you can get with Android at the moment period.

SGS2 seems to pretty much trump any other phone on the market right now. Head and shoulders above any other Android - and my PERSONAL OPINION is that it wipes the floor with the iPhone and WP7 offerings.

I have had mine about a month now, and I've yet to experience 1 fault or dislike with it.

Don't choose Nexus S over Galaxy || even if your life depends on it.

Galaxy S2 without a doubt!

Nexus S is one of the best android phones but probably can't compete with these new dual core monsters.

the GS2II is the most powerful mobile phone on the market currently.

I'm in this boat too, i just sold my Galaxy S and want something else. The GS2 is so freaking expensive right now but that's the phone i've been dreaming about now for a little while. I'd definitely get the GS2 instead of the Nexus S right now (if monies can afford :D)

The only reason I wouldn't choose the Galaxy S2 is for lack of NFC.

I am a huge NFC junkie. :D

That's the thing.. I drool at the GS2 all the time, but it's half a £grand to buy!! I could buy a new car for that!!

Plus I have to think that I wouldn't really use it any differently to my Desire other than maybe using it more instead of my desktop PC.

So as much as I want the GS2.. nah, if I'm going to spend £500+ on a device it's going to be the galaxy tab 10.1 when it comes out here :p
