I prefer Neo V, and I'm using it right now. Better than Arc S, well actually both the same thing. The only difference is that Neo V is smaller and it has front camera. Big phones don't suit me well. I have small fingers, lol.

The internal memory is not an issue, both phones have 1gb of internal memory, around 350mb is accessible by the user which is fairly the norm.
