    So I'm off into town in an hour or so to get a Galaxy Ace 2.

    It's £180, is there anything else I should be considering for that kind of price?

    I've actually being looking into the Ace 2 for my mum as she wants a new phone and it looks a pretty good device for that price point. I don't think it has much (or any) developer scene so I wouldn't expect too many custom roms, but there seems to be an official ICS update from Samsung coming. I think it's the best in that price point for a new device.

    O2 didn't have them in and they were £100 more expensive in Carphone Warehouse.

    Sad times :(

    Not interested in as S2. Way too big for my pocket/actually using as a phone. House mate has got one, I can't stand it.

    I got an Ace 2 for Mum a couple of months ago and she loves it. It's a very quick little handset and has a great set of features. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a mid range smartphone. It was even included for free on o2 when she signed up for an £18/month contract over 24 months :)

    Cheers man, I had a play with the one they did have today. Very fast, much smoother than my current piece of crap.

    Might be a bit of a wait but I'll pick one up!

    I was quite tempted by the Hauwueieiwhatever G300. Decent 4" screen, 1gig processor. Tried it in vodaphone and felt really nice. Can't argue for £100.

    (Edit: I only do PAYG).
