Which phone would you recommend(Android)

My contract is expiring soon and I got a good offer on a new contract.I get to choose between 3 phones.
1) Motorola Razr I
2) Samsung S3 mini.
3) Samsung S2 Galaxy
For the RAZR and MINI S3 I get it free but for S2 Galaxy I need to pay $80 more.
Is it worth it to get the S2?

Flash on the razr i requires root if that is important to you. Other than that, that would be my choice among the options.

I have seen sales for the gs3 for $50 ish before, imo, that would be what I would get.

My contract was up on my GS2 and through my carriers upgrade options it would have cost me $199 to get the GS3. I went through Amazon Wireless and got it for $49.99 and I couldnt be happier. Much smoother phone than the S2 and I think it is the best phone I have ever used including the iPhone 5.

I would also try to get the S3 for $50. I have seen it that price recently at Walmart and Best Buy.

S3 is pretty popular here,and they are asking a lot.Something I can't afford or need.

I wouldn't pay more for the gs2. For a basic use phone, the razr I would be my choice. Better battery life, larger screen with slightly higher pixel density.

If app compatibility is important, then get the s3 mini.

Here in the USA, the Galaxy S III is in effect one of the few viable alternatives to the iPhone 5. And best of all, the phone demonstrates you can use the latest technology, as shown by T-Mobile USA just activating G.722.2 AMR-WB audio for HD-Voice, which is supported by the Galaxy S III and HTC One S sold by T-Mobile.

I just noticed that you are in Berlin. Of the choices you mentioned, I'd go with the Razr.
