I have always had better luck with an accelerator over any other glue. I not sure which would hold better but with an accelerator fixing loose pieces is easy. I tend to use the min. amount of glue I can and just Zap it in place with an acclerator.
My upcoming blog in the works:
I tend to find the thinner super glues work well for me they set quickly and make even assembling huge models such as Bloodthirsters a real doddle to do and means less pinning. Sometimes the slower, thicker glues are good if you want to make some last minute adjustments to a pose or aren't quite sure but need to get something built.
Though if your gluing resin kits together, use slower stuff as super glue to resin dries in about two seconds.
And if you ever want to temporarily thicken your glues, leave it in the fridge for a while and it'll be much more controllable.

Anything that I would want to use a gel style superglue for I do with greenstuff. GS + regular superglue is a fantastic bond and gives you that same 'get the pose just right' freedom
I tried and tested many glues. Random superglues from Home Depot, the GW glues, glues from the war store, glues from a local hobby shop..they all sucked to varying degrees..GW glue probably being the worst (shocker?)
I finally found this glue made by a company called Loctite..
It's Loctite Super Glue "Professional". Loctite makes a ton of other glues but none of them are very good for modelling minus the professional one..I can't find it on there website but they sell it at Home Depot around here and it is amazing..really thin and has the perfect drying time.
Loctite does heaps of amazing stuff for engineering applications. We use their thread and nut lock products all the time at work and I have used their black Prism superglue and it is crazy. You could tow a truck with it.
The one thing that might be worth mentioning for viscosity of SG's is that the thinner glues don't like surfaces that don't mate well with each other. Especially on metal models, the two surfaes can sometimes only touch in a couple of spots because they aren't perfectly matched surfaces. This means the low viscosity SG doesn't get as much material contact as the higher one because it tends to run, whereas the higher will stick to the surface and not run around your model as quickly.
For plastics the lower visc ones work well, as has been said. But if you're using it with metal models, the surfaces need a bit more prep.
