i currently own the evo shift 4g, and im running cm7. i love the stock gingerbread rom, but im hating the hiccups that come with loading a custom rom. im thinking about picking up a nexus s 4g. what the consensus? is it worth the change, or should i stick it out with the evo shift?

The name is Quis...my Android life started with the Hero...then the Epic...then the EVO....then the EVO Shift...and now I'm rockin with the Nexus.
I have a good feeling this will be my favorite of them all. I enjoy messing with my phones and making them ME which is why I'm an Android nerd.
My OS experience varies...I've owned the Blackberry Bold and Tour...I've also owned the Palm Pixi and Pre. Android is what I prefer over them all.

I came from an OG Droid on Verizon and left specifically because they did not have a Nexus or any other vanilla Android devices. I am quite happy with the Nexus. It is far from perfect, but having stock Android and knowing that I will get the latest updates makes me very happy.

Just ordered mine online and am coming from the LG Optimus S, where I tried every ROM that KSmithinNY developed and can't wait to see what he comes up with for the NS4G! Before the Optimus I used the Hero with CM6. I'm a wife, mom of three, and have worked for the same PD in Central IL for 20 years now.

I have only been messing with phones for about a year and a half. Started with the Hero, then the Optimus, now the Nexus S. I was waiting for Sprint to put out something that didn't suck so I finally bit. I have already rooted my Nexus and look forward to what everyone contributes on this site as well as any others. Don't hate if I ask a lot of questions.

I just ordered my S. I am coming from a Palm Pre. I really like webOS, but the hardware is simply poor. even overclocked it is laggy and slow. Battery life is pathetic and the ecosystem lacks developer support in terms of apps and with no new dates for a Sprint Pre3, I decided to try out Android. I tried one out in the Sprint store, but it is hard to tell until the phone is synced up and running. Hopefully I will not be disappointed. I am particularly interesting in how it will manage my gmail calendar for home and my exchange calendar for work. webOS was particularly good at this.

Not certain where to start,
My current phone is a company supplied Motorola Razor.
No Internet, no apps, nothing, nadda, zip, zilch.
My wife is currently using my old Palm 755P but she's ready for an upgrade.
So as a birthday present my wife told me that I could to get myself a phone that I wanted.
I had every intention of getting an Evo. Ended up ordering a Nexus S 4g.(Just couldn't resist).
Per UPS, it should be at my house when I get home.
I'm going to start looking thru the various posts here, But I'm curious if there's anything I should know upfront. All advice is welcome.
This is my first Android phone.
