Default Galaxy S or S Plus - Which to buy?

Hi guys,

So i watched a couple of videos about this device being able to run some graphic intensive games using a ROM called HellyBean or smth like that. So because im abit into gaming but not that much, which device is preferred to buy if Im into gaming. Usually, i use my phone for social networking apps and some gaming like Asphalt, Dead Space etc... Also, i rmb that the S Plus had the same hardware as my old Galaxy Wonder but its still laggy in games. SO is this phone suitable for meh? I have about 120USD/88EUR/150SGD to spend so recommend me other device D

S plus you can get. Not much difference between them. S plus MSM8255T 1400MHz Qualcomm processor. Galaxy S ARM Cortex A8 processor 1000MHz. S plus = HSDPA (14.4 Mbps). Galaxy S = HSDPA (7.2 Mbps).

Sorry bad English.

S might have a better developer support. I have it running well for 4 years now. And now on Kit Kat. Cheers

Hmm, I watched a YouTube video about this guy who was using his Galaxy S to play really intensed games like MC4 & Asphalt 8 at full graphics. I rmb he enabled Zram and used HellyBean. Does the Galaxy S Plus also handles the same perfomance? Or isit better even without zram and that ROM?

Default I have the "S plus" and would by it again

I have got the i9001 "plus" for several years now and i realy love it. There is a great developer community and KitKat is quite stable on it.
The only problem is the small amount of RAM but as far as i know its the same on i9000.

Really? I thought both are similar except specs differ.
