[QUOTE=nicatronTg;31732033]HTC Inc.[/QUOTE] this is a severely dated phone and has the worst battery life of any android device ever made the galaxy s 2 is a good phone all around get that

[QUOTE=fuckthapolice;31740188]If he has the GS2 as a choice, why[/QUOTE] Money (or lack thereof)
If money is no object and you're on a network that can support it, you have no reason whatsoever to pass over the SGSII, unless you need a keyboard or a ruggedized build.
I have a Droid, but I've also modded the shit out of it. It's about 4x faster, and gets about 2.5 days of battery life. But you might try out a Droid 3. It's the most up-to-date.
I'm going to say now that we're on the precipice of HTC's actual phones that are competitive with the SGSII, ie the HTC Ruby, which is the Mytouch 4G's camera with Sensation form factor w/ 1.5 GHz dual core, 1 GB of RAM, the damn works. For AT&T there is the upcoming HTC Holiday which might be worth looking into. If you want HTC phones I would guess it would be worth your time to wait and get a more polished product. If you want Motorola, the Droid 3 if you want a keyboard or wait for the Droid Bionic which should be out by September. If you want Samsung await the arrival of the SGSII for your carrier.

[url]http://www.slashgear.com/htc-vigor-may-be-first-beats-phone-specs-leaked-along-with-lg-revolution-2-11171188/[/url] Verizon has something interesting coming from HTC. If you're okay with what is essentially an overclocked single core and another overclocked single core taken out of phones like the HTC Desire HD/Thunderbolt/Incredible S/Desire S with more RAM and some other stuff, then it's fine. If you wanted faster single core performance too, for Qualcomm you have to wait until Krait, Samsung has that now, and Nvidia is just... I don't know.

Got money? Samsung Galaxy S II. No money? ZTE Blade.
Galaxy S 2.
[QUOTE=Ralbane;31738447]this is a severely dated phone and has the worst battery life of any android device ever made the galaxy s 2 is a good phone all around get that[/QUOTE] Dated, but it's still a better processor than the god damn ZTE Blade. If battery life is an issue, there are $10 extended batteries on Amazon that are more than triple the capacity.
The HTC Inc 2/Incredible S has very good battery life from what I read.

ZTE skate [editline]16th August 2011[/editline] better than blade
[QUOTE=Ralbane;31758053]or you could just get a modern phone with a modern battery life lol[/QUOTE] Oh god how wrong could you be.. Most, if not all modern Android phones I have used have AWFUL battery life. Modern phone does not equal "modern battery life" I have found - infact, a "modern battery life" is actually a "shite battery life"..
Tmobile G2x

[QUOTE=Ralbane;31758053]or you could just get a modern phone with a modern battery life lol[/QUOTE] Enjoy your not so snappy Blade then. My original Inc battery is fine, but I use it so damn often (GPS) that I need an extended battery.

Atrix 4G BTW has one of the biggest batteries on the market, if you know how to optimize the battery life for around 200-300 mA drain screen on and 1-10 mA drain screen off you'll be fucking golden for battery life.

All smartphones nowadays have terrible batteries compared to non-smartphones.
[QUOTE=Ralbane;31777892]i'll be enjoying my nexus s because i'm not a dumbass who buys nearly two year old phones[/QUOTE]except the nexus s is on over a year old hardware?

oh okay i guess now that i really read it all and think about it that all makes complete perfect sense????????????????????????????????????????????????
The SGS II is the best android device out there overall. Best CPU, Best GPU, Best screen, thinnest and fastest. Hunt3r.j2 appears to have a vested interest in people buying HTC devices. Hunt3r.j2 doesn't possess the technical knowledge to understand that HTC releasing a device with the MSM8620 running 300MHz faster will not significantly increase the speed of the device. It's limited by the architecture of the cores which is most similar to an A8 while all the new CPUs use A9s. So regardless of how much HTC wishes to make the fastest device they simply can not. Another big issue is their UI taking large amounts of resources to run. [editline]18th August 2011[/editline] Now you live in the US. The best devices I can recommend RIGHT NOW on Verizon are the Droid X2 and the Droid 3. On AT&T I'd grab the Atrix and on T-Mobile I'd grab the G2X. Sprint bet their money on a 3D device and at the moment they have no devices worth the money.

Not only that, but you were the one promoting the ZTE Blade, not the Nexus S. If you have the option to get a better phone, by all means do so. I'm saying that recommending the blade is a a bad recommendation, based on the 400Mhz difference in processor speed and mod communities.

I keep my SGS maxed brightness with 3G, Bluetooth, GPS and wifi enabled. It lasts me the entire day listening to music, texting, steaming HD youtube and taking pictures/videos. Also you're definitely right that the Nexus S is a much better option than the blade. But don't just attribute that to the 400MHz cpu speed difference. Remember, the Nexus S uses an ARMv7 cpu and the Blade uses an ARMv6 one.
