Go for the Samsung Galaxy S II or wait for the new year?

Hi, My contract is up in the next few weeks and at the moment I am leaning towards getting a Galaxy S II. Is there anything coming out in the new year which would make me change my mind?

I've rooted and flashed my current phone so I might also check out the LG Optimus 2x as suggested by someone in a earlier thread.

There doesn't seem to be much on the horizon but thanks to MIUI my HTC Desire is still going strong so I wouldn't mind waiting for a bit longer.

Well if you say its up in a few weeks its probably best to wait atleast until MWC in january... due to either the sammy going down in price or a new phone outshining her...

Isn't MWC at the end of February? I'm not sure I'm that patient :) plus I'm paying £35 a month

CES is in the first half of January though and rumour has it that this year the phone companies all want those extra few weeks of publicity, so some phone announcements are going to be happening at CES not MWC.

Exactly what'll be announced at each event is as of yet unknown, though. Also, whatever's announced probably won't hit the shops until late March/April time.

ok. CES then smartypants ;) and surely you would rather have the samsung galaxy s3 for £35 a month than say the older s2?

I would just like to add, don't get an Optimus 2x, they're sh*t.

Maybe I can wait for CES to come up although I`ll never be able to afford a brand new phone. It`s just having to pay the full price for my contract which is bugging me. (The joys of cashback)

@tread I wasn't taking the p#$$. I did a search and found the image.

@MATT that`s what I thought but they were suggesting flashing a new ROM

i know you werent bro ;) but i was :D i would still wait for at least ces just to see what appears and could therefore lower the cost of the previous generation... i mean you get an s2 before at say 35 a month but after ces it drops the 25 (with the package) isnt that worth it?
