    I plan on getting a Samsung Galaxy 2 soon, but after some research I'm kinda digging the extras the Samsung Galaxy 3 has to offer. A rather simple question, but should I save my money and stick with the S2 or go ahead and shell some extra money for the s3

    Nah....cause the S3 itself (if I go with that) will be just enough to break my spending limit....I just want to know if its worth it to just go with an S3 or be content with an S2

    I've got an S2 with a custom version of Jelly Bean running on it, featuring quite a few of the extras the S3 has. Great phone, I've felt no reason to upgrade. Can depend really on how much you want the bigger screen. FTR though I will be upgrading to the S4 later on this year though, that in my opinion is looking good enough to wait that bit extra time [to possibly save up the extra pennies?]

    I would go for that S3, because difference between S2 & S3 is quite big. Especially batterylife IIRC. Camera was better too, screen of course too.
    But the S2 is basically an S1 with a bigger screen and much better specs, but batterylife has changed the same. Only the S3 had a better battery, and that's quite important.

    S3, or wait for the S4 announcement (wait roughly 1 month), and prices will go down a bit

    S3, the battery life and power of it alone should warrant the purchase, however if I was in your position I would get a windows phone and save up for a PS4 :tpi:

    It depends on your price range if you are willing to spend a few hundred more then get an S3 but if your budget isn't as big like me then you should get an S2 since the cheapest I could find an S3 was around $500 while the cheapest S2 I can find is around $250 to $300.

    The S3 has already dropped in price twice since launch (I got it on launch). When the S4 comes out, the S3 will drop even further. Still, the S3 is easily one of the best phones from 2012. I'm just undecided if the Note 2 is better (there's also iPhone 5, which I also own, but it's an apples and oranges thing).

    Wait for the s3 to price drop, and get it. I had the same choice as you, and I got the s3, which is amazing!

    I'd wait for the s3 to price drop when the s4 comes out or if you're on a budget you could go for the Nexus 4. 16gb>8gb. The Nexus 4 is really a great phone to choose so if you can afford that i'd choose that over the s2 by far.
