Nexus S
 
So I had a Samsung Epic 4g for a while... I really thought it was a powerful phone and liked it. After being tempted by the Nexus S and the solid looks though I ended up picking it up. I really have to say, the stock android experience is a whole lot better than the experience with modified UIs and all the bull**** included in these builds from manufacturers.

I seriously doubt I'll ever be getting another slider smartphone again. The keyboard was useless and made it feel very cheap. I really doubt I'll ever own another phone that doesn't run stock android if the option is available. It really makes the experience that much better having all the fun updates right away. For example, I'm on 2.3.4 and we have Netflix working already. The epic likely won't get that ability, and if it does, it'll have to wait at least until it's updated to Gingerbread according to everything we've heard.

It's sad to see companies ruining their own product when they could have had a much cleaner design and better performing product if they just stuck with the stock experience

I prefer the stock experience to everything but HTC's sense. It's just about perfect for me.

I actually have tried sense except in-passing on my friend's evo. It seemed ok, as long as they keep it as a launcher and theme only.

What really bothered me was that all the core apps, the browser, calendar, contacts, etc, were all modified. This should be fine, except samsung introduced new bugs that I found in almost every app they touched.

HTC played with the browser, but in all honesty it seems to render faster than the stock one. I'm up for an upgrade on Verizon in June and I'm not sure what I want to get. LG Revolution looks interesting but it's been binged :/
