LTE vs HSPA +

I've seen the numerous comparisons of download tests on youtube comparing LTE speeds and HSPA+ speeds across major carriers.

I'm looking to buy a new phone, and since I have T-mobile, I am only limited to HSPA+ phones. Should I hold out until the 2013 LTE roll out (albeit slow rollout) and buy an upcoming LTE phone? or should I buy a HSPA+ phone now, given the LTE speeds, although fast, is not that significantly noticible than HSPA + to an average user.

I dont' play games. I simply use my phone to access data and do a little bit of navigation and map pulls. I only average about 1.5G of data usage a month.
