New or would you go used?

Most likely the S2 just as soon as the S3 launches, maybe even once it's announced.

currently best price is 299 (used on amazon)

Worth an extra £49 over the Atrix or the Sensation, easily.

Treab  Apr. 12, 2012 at 18:34

true ;) but is it worth the extra 100 over the atrix ;) (used like for like)

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 12, 2012 at 18:52

Yes, the Atrix is crap. There's a reason they only sold 4.

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 12, 2012 at 18:52

The Atrix 2 is still worse than the S2.

why not do something useful and give the op suggestions rather than spam then mod :p

My suggestion was pay an extra £49 and get an S2 (or wait a month or so for the S3 and the S2 price will drop).

My other piece of advice was avoid the Atrix because it's a sh*tty phone.

Assuming it ever arrives..

also check out the huawei g300 £100 quid but not too shabby.

Doesn't compare to any ~£250 phones though. It's a fantastic buy for £100 but not worth £250, or comparable to phones that are.

If it doesn't arrive many s2 owners will start to opt for One X and still be a glut of s2 hitting the used market. ;)

Didn't say it was ;) just something worth checking out :p

Not if you're in the market for a £250 phone it isn't.

That's like saying: "I know you were looking at an S-Class Mercedes but you could buy a Skoda Superb instead...they're good value for money".

Pondlife  Apr. 12, 2012 at 19:23

So any phones at that price new that are worthwhile.
I can't think of any

Now your just being obnoxious :p someone looking to spend 250 as their max maynot want to buy a second hand phone...
