generally i find fault with PA's comparisons. But I also have a hard time reasoning a nexus S over a galaxyS phone. The only thing it has on my vibrant is a FFC and a flash on the camera... the first of which, id never use. Lacking 720p and a removable mem card slot are big hits to me. I would assume they would add in the 720 option later though as its just a software upgrade.

As for me, I don't care for the slide-out keyboard, or the branding on the Epic. Stripped down Android, is what I'll take. Wimax is nice if you get it, and lets not forget it costs 10 extra bucks a month. It'll be great day, when all Galaxy S phones get 2.3.

So, in the end, would it be better for me to use my insurance to get a new Epic or just sell my Epic in order to get a Nexus S 4G?

I like the Epic. The Nexus is good but personally I like how Epic gives me choses of texting : potrait and landscape texting on screen, swype, and with a keyboard. I'm 13 and a mega texter so i like that feeling I can text in all the possible ways I can and as a teen, trust me when I got my LG Rumor Touch, my first phone, I said I will never drop this phone .. EVER! but i did -_____________- and I like how Epic is stronger than the plastic Nexus background. Both phones are great :D but for those who like that I can text in all possible ways and a tougher phone for butterfingers (i admit :P) than I suggest Epic ^___^
