What do you think ? Is it worth it to sell my S2 and buy a Nexus?

I guess you want the nexus because it has jb right?
The next nexus will be much better, I'm also looking forward to it..

If it's for JB, Sammy's already stated they're working on it for the S2 and S3. Obviously that could take quite a while knowing their reputation but CM10 will come to save the day. So you're not missing out with the S2. Not to mention the nexus hardware is a teeny bit outdated at the moment, you'll notice it. Personally, Id stick with the S2. It really is the better phone. Hope I helped

the Galaxy note 2 should be out shortly and that phone is going to be a BEAST.
I also have a galaxy s2 that I'm planning on selling but was thinking about keeping as a secondary and just dropping my insurance.
The plus is that you can probably get about $250 for the Galaxy s2 with your accessories if you sell now.

I would only get a nexus if you wanted vanilla android right out the box. Personally, I think the S2 is the better phone. Better processor, camera, and it has an SD card slot.

The one thing I love about the nexus is the notification light being in the same location as the nexus one ..not a big deal but still kinda cool..

Talking If You are Developer - only Nexus

From the introducing of Nexus brand by Google it became the phone of Developer.
I bought one in 2010 and am using it today.
I know that it is too old, but I love it.

My opinion - to get Nexus.
(maybe wait the the next model)

I'm thinking the same. I'm using SGS2 T989 now and really like pure Android OS. I'll wait for the next Google phone. In the meantime, I'll just wait for CM9/10 to be stable enough for my T989

Wait
Probably a good idea to wait for the next Nexus phone, maybe from Motorola this time?

Are you upgrading for the sake of upgrading or do you have a real need? I'm personally going to skip this generation as I see no need for a new phone
