    Default Which...$400 Sprint GNex or $200 Epic 4G Touch?

    I am looking to switch to a Sprint MVNO and need to make a decision on an off-contract phone. I currently have a GSII Skyrocket, and like it, so the Epic 4G Touch would be very familiar to me. However, I have always dreamed of having a Nexus device for the stock android experience and quick updates/upgrades. I have never rooted a phone and don't really want to. I'd rather have the peace of mind of OTA updates.

    At first, I was willing to pay the extra price ($400 vs $200) for a GNex, but now I read that Sprint and Verizon have lagged behind the unlocked GSM Nexus updates. If that's the case, the value of a Gnex is at least somewhat diminished. Still, it has at least gotten the upgrade, instead of still being on 4.0 like the Epic 4G.

    So, anyone out there have a pro/con about paying more for a Gnex vs saving money for an Epic 4G?

    I agree. Get a nexus with tmobile. But if you must get a sprint mvno just get the epic touch. The nexus is nice but not worth $200 more. Plus if your not used to a plain os with no fancy ui tweaks then it takes a little getting used to. A Google only phone is not for everyone. Good luck deciding. Just remember that right now tmo data will be faster then sprint.

    Thanks for the replies. I'd love to switch to a T-mobile value plan, but their cell service is not very good in my area. I had them a few years ago and couldn't get a signal inside my office building or anywhere on main st.
