If you were upgrading to a new phone tomorrow. Would it be the sexy Nexus-S, with the beautiful Super AMOLED screen and stock Android, or a jailbreaked iPhone running custom themes and apps ?

I prefer Android lately, I have the EVO rooted with CM 6.1 and it is pretty darn cool. But my Brother currently has a 2yr old iPhone3G, and it is flaky and running like poo lately, he wants a new phone this week. I told him about the Nexus-S, and he is not to sure about going Android yet.

He said there are some cool features with a jailbroke iPhone 4 ? He likes the thinness of the new iPhone and great battery life, plus the screen res is amazing. To me the screen is too small for a cool smart phone, and no widgets blows, but that's what jailbreaking is for I guess.

opinions ??

Is this really a question? The Nexus S by far.

I had an iPhone 3GS jailbroken and decked out the whole shebang. It was "nice". Then got BORED of it and bought the Nexus One. You can only do so much on an iPhone.

Nexus S here I come!

Not officially. Hell up until recently the iPhone didn't support multi-tasking officially either
