The device is the best one I ever touched and used.If any one still using Samsung Galaxy S II then i would suggest to upgrade it with SGS3 .The SGS2 is selling for $232.25 according to this price report .

SII is one of the best phones in the world even after almost a year... it does not matter that it is old if it is at the top of the list... Plus age adds experience...
Good phones will stay good, age does not matter.
Samsung quickly makes newer and better phones, it learns from its mistakes and goes forward while remembering the old devices, e.g. SII got ICS and is probably getting Jelly Bean too... The SII era is not over yet.

I believe that SII is better because it's already nearly a year old, it's been tested by masses of people, problems are fixed and yet it's still one of the best phones out there... SIII has everything SII has, however, SII is more trustworthy, SIII is new and has some risks...
There is a whole SII community with its own software developments (like apps with SIII features - you can have some of the new SIII features on SII, e.g. s voice) that were already tried by many, the communities share not just software but also exerience, tips and etc, SIII does not have all that yet, it's too young...
The time will come when SIII is truly better...

I would prefer to see how the wp8 devices perform. Even Samsung itslf is hedging bets and producing high end wp8 devices. After all Samsung does not have to be loyal to Android and can use any os if it is on the market. I think wp8 devices will be more business focused than Android and therefore of interest to me where Android tries to be everythging but is not. People should stop ranting about benchmarks etc when they are not relevant to the ordinary user. If you can get a SII new for half its original price then get it, otherwise wait and see what wp8 is all about.
