    Apart from the slightly better camera and the slightly higher res screen this is no better than my t-mobile galaxy S2

      The processor is one generation ahead. Your system is based on dual-core Snapdragon S3, while this is dual-core Snapdragon S4.

        okay and a slightly better processor. Still not much of a difference. Especially when the S2 is an old phone.
