Possibly silly question: AT&T Nexus S or Skyrocket?
(I also posted this in the Skyrocket forum. I figured that the two forums would give me more perspective on the question. If double-posting isn't allowed, then I apologize and ask that this post be closed down. Also, for the record, I am asking about the AT&T NS. This forum seems to be much more popular, so I'm posting it here instead)
Right now I have a GS2 Skyrocket. I'm within my 30 day return policy, and while I like the phone a lot, I don't quite "love" it. Speeds are great, screen is nice and large, so on and so forth. Here are my only criticisms:
LTE makes me want to use my data a LOT faster (not really a problem with the device per se, but when I can download a 40mb podcast in 10 seconds, it's tempting to do so).
Battery life leaves something to be desired. I do live in an LTE area, so that's a big strain on the battery.
TouchWiz has gotten a lot better since I had the Captivate, but I still have the desire to get the latest updates without delays.
It was an expensive device. I forced an upgrade through early and it cost me $300.
The screen is a great size (I owned the Dell Streak for a little while; enough said), but the resolution just means that the text is larger than a smaller screen.
I'm considering returning it and using the upgrade to get an AT&T banded Nexus S. I almost never play games on my phone, and I fear that the LTE and dual-core features are just more power than I need. I want a device that I can use for calls, texting, reading RSS feeds, Facebook/G+, and listening to music/podcasts; above all, I want a phone that does all of the above SMOOTHLY. I don't expect iOS-level smoothness, but the Skyrocket/GS2 level of polish is just about right.
Would I be foolish to return the Skyrocket and get the NS?
