Hi all long story on my third nexus one - love it when it's working but I have wasted so much time getting it fixed/replaced etc I have had enough. Oh it's got issues again now grrr.  So looking for options always said I wouldn't get an iphone but maybe it's worth a look? I love android, I use my phone for my business (I run a couple of websites) so a reliable smart phone is a must.

Any thoughts on the nexus s? Samsung galaxy s 11?
Any I should consider?
Would appreciate any help
thanks!

I think you'd love the Galaxy S II 

I assume you're on Vodafone.

If the Galaxy SII is in your budget its hard to recommend anything else right now!

Anandtech's review and the stuff on GSMarena is a good read if you haven't looked much into the handset yet (also my own stuff at Clove's blog might be of interest for more of a real users point of view).

I have a Nexus S, and love it, but using a mates Galaxy S2 is way faster and the screen is better.

I would upgrade from the Nexus S to the S2, but the only thing stopping me is its looks. That galaxy S2 is huge! (4.5"? screen but very slim). Plus, I don't think I could get it passed the wife.

4.3 inch screen, but yes, some will find it quite large in everyday use.

If you seriously consider iPhone make sure web maintenance (if you need it) for your various sites works correctly in all critical areas. Your browser options on iPhone are severely limited.

I think I'd hate to browse on the iPhone with it's tiny screen. 4.3"+ all the way imo

thanks guys that's really helpful. I must agree I am a little concerned about the size of the screen but it's probably just because I am use to smaller rather than a justifible concern.
I have the very cool hp touchpad as my tablet and love it!
I got windows7 phones for my workers but must admit I found the nexus way easier to use and do non work things like downloaded games lol. It's limited storage space is a downside too.
Can't really see any other cool phones that attract my interest.  Is there anything in the pipeline I should consider waiting for? thanks

You sell the Nexus S, add $300 and get the Galaxy S II.

Cool phones in the pipeline: Nexus Prime - next vanilla Android developer handset - will be the first with Ice Cream Sandwiche and rumoured specs are pretty good including a possible 720p screen. Galaxy Note first stock expected November, will be too large for many, but some of us like Lokhor and I will simply love its 1280x800 5.3inch screen :)

I think that fruit company has a new version of their phone shortly too.

I have no fear of big phone. The LG Optimus 3D is a long / wide phone...and I really like it. The HTC Sensation is slightly smaller, but still a good sized phone.

We're talking millimeters....but at these sizes that we bit of extra screen is well worth the larger form factor (To me!) :-)

Hmm I like your thinking.

Kinda like the CM flavour though, might have to research whether SGS2 runs CM7?  

Either that or wait for the Nexus Prime? But the only thing I want to add to my Nexus S is an extra core and AMOLED (oh and maybe another 7days standby battery) ;)
