    Im trying to decide whether to keep my rooted nexus running ICS or go amd give the E4GT a go.i could get the E4GT by trading my nexus so im wondering if that would be a good idea.
    Any thoughts?

    I had the nexus s 4g for 2 weeks loved it returned in hopes that sprint would get the nexus prime (galaxy nexus) but couldn't wait any longer. I ended up getting the epic 4g touch for a penny with amazon had the sale. I still wish I had the nexus s 4g for the pure vanilla experience. Hate touchwiz but use go launcher with ICS theme. I chose the epic since it is more future proof with the dual core and more ram. I am happy with it but still miss the Nexus s 4g at times both have good and bad things about them. If you are satisfied with your nexus s 4g stay with it since it will get ICS very soon, if not then go for the epic 4g touch.

    how easy is the touch to root? That its my only question. I also dislike the stock launcher and use launcher pro on my nexus.

    I love my NS4G to death because of the vanilla experience, and I have pretty much no lag since I unrooted, but If I had the chance to I would trade for the epic 4g touch in a millisecond I love the huge screen, they're both super AMOLED and 16gigs, and it has a dual core processor. I'm still trying to find a good deal for one on craigslist
    When was that deal for a 1 cent E4GT?

    already did... I don't consider any of the three roms I flashed as goodness. Lol. App drawer is ugly, gallery is hideous and the dock is cartoonish.

    I bought the Epic 4G Touch during Amazon's penny sale and I love it. I bought the Nexus S 4G today off of craigslist because I would like ICS as quickly as possible.

    Owning both phones, I can tell you they are for different people. The Epic 4G touch is a great phone on its own. Touchwiz 4.0 is better than 3.0 and has better features. The thing is, with the Epic 4G touch, if you like the Samsung experience, then is great, if you have it to root and flash many ROM's, then it's not ideal. There aren't many ROM's available just yet, and majority that are are basically themed.

    If you want the quicker updates, I recommend the Nexus S 4G. To be honest, holding both phones together, I actually prefer the NS4G style over the E4GT. The size is just perfect. The E4GT can feel a bit too big. Either way, both are great phones, just depends what you want out of them.

    ^ don't you have to keep the epic on your line for 6 months before you can switch the line to a different phone?

    Honestly i'm not sure how that works, but to be safe I still have the E4GT on my line just in case. I bought the Nexus so i can play with it. Once those 6 months are up I'll probably end up transferring my line to the Nexus.
