Can't say I know anything about a Nokia. As you have a budget, that'll probably be the limiting factor so I guess my only advice would be get something as high spec as your budget will allow.
Thanks! Nokia uses Windows 8 and I am not a fan. I was looking at the S2 but might pay extra for the S3. Assume a newer model is better.

Here are some comparisons:

In short, yes the S3 is better (I guess not surprisingly seeing as it is newer) but whether that's what you want/need is of course up to you.

Great links, thanks! I'm being cheap, but the differences don't seem too great. Would like to anticipate obsolescence in the next 2-3 years, though.

In any case, bought tickets to Thailand for August. Going through Issan into Laos. Martial law be damned!

Anyone know anywhere in Japan I can get an unlocked Android? Or even OS that ships to Japan? Considering a Note 3 (or a Google Nexus 5 but can get the Google off their site easily enough).
