    I forgot
    Which Galaxy Tab 3 is it? The 7in or the 8in?

    Regardless, out of both of the devices you currently own, the Galaxy S2 is the less-powerful of the 2 and thus I would recommend getting a new phone. Do you have any preferences? Do you prefer Samsung's Galaxy line or would you be willing to go for something else? You should be able to grab a Galaxy S4 in good condition for around $250-$300, or you can go for the slightly more powerful LG G2 which sells for around $300 used in good condition (based on a quick search on http://swappa.com/ which I highly recommend you use for buying phones/tablets ;) )

    7 inch tablet? That's like a 3" phone. Too small dude.

    Get a 4.8+ phone, it's almost the same and will be more powerful.

    I can recommend a Nexus 4. It's pretty cheap ever since the 5 came out and has decent enough specs for today's standarts. Definitely a good upgrade over an S2.

    7in

    Well, I've been using Samsung this whole time, but I don't mind to switch, as long as it's android of course :P.

    I'll take a look.
