I have a BlackBerry Bold for work and I am super excited about getting a iPhone 4s to replace it...and that makes me sick, lol.

I may trade in my iphone for the Galaxy Nexus. So there are battery issues with the JellyBean os? I'm sure the iphone has its qualities. But I'm use to android. I'm not a computer guy at all, but there are things I wish could happen or I could change with the iphone. Things like third party alarms don't work well when you don't have the alarm running. If I forget to open the program before I go to bed sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Things like I have to sync it to Itunes at home to change to different ringtones, deleting pictures easily. I'm sure there is someone that knows the tricks. But for what it is, it's annoying. If you do get an Iphone grab a LifeProof case. Said it before, the case is better than the phone.

Love the nexus. I did not notice battery issue with JB when I used it. Its a solid phone and in stock form avoids a lot of BS apps and such like HTC puts on theirs.

I truly hate when you get something and it's preloaded with useless BS. The only thing I don't like about my Thrive is the stupid crap that is loaded from the factory, which I can't delete, and if I wanted to I'd have to root it to delete it. Not that good with computers and want my warrantee. Hopefully when ICS gets released for it it will solve my headaches.

Have you been browsing XDA Developers?
They unlocked it and CWM can be installed.
No S-off yet though.

I got a Sensation 4G. S-Off, unlocked bootloader, Rooted with the latest radio and adreno drivers running a custom kernel and a custom rom.

This is the way the phone should have been from the factory. Before it was just slow and bloated.

Next phone? HTC One X hands down. I prefer Sense over Touchwiz and its easy to unlock. However, if I could get Sense on a SG3 then I would go for that instead, the hardware is undeniably superior even if by a small margin.

My only beef with both phones is the bulk. They are massive. Which is why I may go for the HTC One S or nothing at all(since its so close to the Sensation in specs) until the next generation.

It will once again come with all the bloatware and then some.

buying an iphone is like buying a pretty decent sports car with zero consumer repairable/replaceable parts. The only thing you can change is the octane of gasoline you put into the tank.

buying an android is like buying an average, pre-built, kit car. It might not have the best performing engine in the world, it might be on steelies with crappy tires, and the rear brakes might not work when you first buy it, BUT, everything on the car has universally standard connections, and is attached with 3 easy-to-access bolts, the manufacturer provides all of the SSTs for you for free when you buy the car, and there are 100 different options for every conceivable replaceable part, and most of the best replaceable parts (the entire drivetrain for example) are available to you free of charge.

Pandora, Ebay, Google Nav,, facebook, etrade, banking and browsing.

There isn't anything you cant do on a blackberry or any other phone with a smaller screen, but a bigger screen makes it easier imho.

This is one of the reasons why I don't understand the point of huge screen phones, certainly more than 4 inches or even 3. If I could get an android with a 3 inch screen and decent hardware like an Iphone id get that, but I can't and I don't like the apple os.

I had a Blackberry Curve up until now and I'm glad I can watch **** on my phone without having to squint.

I have all of the apps you mentioned with the addition of Paypal.

not in the market for a new phone

Zero positive qualities with an iPhone.

OneX is off the list due to the lack of a servicable battery and no removable storage.

...only the "kit car" has superior hardware every time. When the iPhone5 drops, it will have less RAM and less processing power with a smaller screen, locked-down to use Apple services rather than the freedom to choose. With any luck the USB/phone cable will have an extra pin so you have to buy new cables and chargers too.

Sometimes I touch the screen of my BB in desperation that it will move the dumb mouse-pointer.

rooting isn't that bad and reverting back to stock isn't hard either. Plenty of detailed (and easy to understand) step by step guides out there. I accidentally deleted EVERYTHING from my phone the other day (no OS, nothing), and reverting it back to stock was very easy.

HTC Sensation 4G here. Rooted w/ HyperNonSense version of ICS and stock kernel. ROM came with "Apex" launcher that seems to have 15 bug updates per month and suggest downloading yet another version every time one comes out. Probably will switch back to Go launcher.

You'll get a new phone before you need a new battery and I guess 32gb may not be enough for some but for me, its way more than I need. But I see your point. I also prefer the feel of the one x over the SG3. It just feels more solid.
