    I had a nexus s 4g, but now have an iPhone 4 with sprint. I love the iPhone and it's hardware. The software is great in my opinion, but I do miss my nexus. I just don't know what to do...I waited so long for the iPhone to come to sprint and now that I have it, I'm contemplating going back to my nexus. Although mine had horrible reception. About 2 bars everywhere I went. I'm sure battery life is better on my iPhone as well. But as far as data speed...I think my nexus is beating it. Just don't know what to do. Any suggestions? And please be serious.

    Hopefully the Galaxy Nexus comes to Sprint. Apparently the battery life is amazing.

    Sell or return your iPhone and get another.

    My daughter had to have iPhone, got her one for Xmas. Playing with it, I ran unscientific tests. Just opened apps to race, nexus beat it hands down every time on performance. This is from someone who always swore she would get one.

    Love my iPad, will probably get an android tablet next year when it's is on them, but couldn't stand it on a phone, so many restrictions

    Staying android and will never own a non google phone without all the sprint crapware again, regardless of now many processors they put out there!

    I think it really depends on what the user needs and wants.

    My wife has an iPhone 4 (with AT&T), and she really enjoys it. She had the iPhone 3 as well. She rarely complains about it and does quite a bit with the phone. Every now and again she'll have a dropped call, but I think we all know that is likely to be AT&T's issue, not the iPhone's issue. She doesn't experience any drop in reception (but then again, she has a case that is about 3 inches thick all around!).

    I fiddle with her iPhone every now and again, and I use it for making calls or browsing, apps, etc. I think it's a fine phone as well.

    However, it's not my flavor as an everyday phone.

    I have two reasons for this. For me, I think it's ironic that Apple considers itself to be a liberating company, socially minded, promiting independence, and artistic (just think of that Orwellian 1984-ish commercial). In reality, can you think of an electronics arm that is more "socialist?" Every iPhone is the same, other than color and memory. Every Mac is the same. Every iPad is the same. There are no options. I like options. Android has options. It's completely customizable.

    The second reason is that I have found my Nexus to be faster and last longer than my wife's iPhone(s). Even when I had my Epic 4G, it was faster than my wife's phone. The camera was WAY better.

    So, it's a personal decision for everyone. I'm not an Android fanboy; nor am I an Apple hater (I have an iPad).

    Android just works for me and my personality.

    If you want something to answer phone calls, check your email, browse, and play games/apps, both phones will suit you well. If you want something that is completely customizable and does all the above, go Android (and go Google...

    Bars mean nothing because each manufacture and phone model reports them differently. At home on the desk right next to my computer my old Hero showed 3 bars, the Nexus S 2, guess what the signal strength (-db) was the same on both phones.

    Calls never drop unless they are from/to someone with AT&T

    my wife's iphone 4S data speeds are much faster than my nexus. thats the only advantage i would give to the iphone, oh and the camera. if the iOS was customizable i think it would dominate, but its not, and thats why i prefer android

    Yeah I just have the 4 and not the 4S. Read to many bad reviews on the battery life on the 4S. But yeah the camera is also an important factor. I enjoy taking photos with my phone and the iPhone has great photography apps. The overall build quality of the iPhone is top notch too, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Nexus' 4 inch super amoled screen.

    I asked because I saw the opposite. I had two 4S's that I returned until Sprint gets a fix out. They were laughably bad data speed wise.

    yep. and it pisses me off. im yet to win a side by side speedtest or FCC test. her 3g speeds in good areas are like 2100k to my 1200k. it does a much better job with weak signals too..ive noticed that my speakeasy tests get close to her speedtest speeds, but she still wins by a few hundred kbps...

    I'm out, as well!

    My data speeds are low triple digits on my Nexus S. The browser takes forever to finish loading pages, even on wifi.

    I've ordered a Galaxy Nexus unlocked and going back to AT&T. Moving to Sprint was a big mistake for me.

    Can't wait for the new phone to arrive.

    If you don't consider Sprint's WiMAX as 4G, I sure hope you don't consider AT&T's HSPA+ to be 4G. I have seen AT&T's "4G" in action and they're no better than Sprint's "4G". The only "4G" I would take over WiMAX is LTE.

    Of course, by official 4G standards, not even Verizon's LTE is 4G yet. When 4G was first defined, it was defined as connection speeds of 100+ mbps. No one, not even the fastest LTE connection, is that fast.
