Default Nexus or S3 Which should I keep?

I got a galaxy s3 as an upgrade, and bought myself a nexus from ebay originally to replace the s3 as I wanted the "pure" google experience.

I am now unsure which one to keep. The s3 with a stock like rom (cm10) or my nexus with the official releases

just after a pure(ish), smooth, bug free experience of jellybean

what do you guys think?

as a galaxy user id stay with the galaxy s 3 its alot better in quality and size. the jellybean update is coming soon. they said the release would come out October.

yes the only reason nexus is a lil smother is because of jellybean.
but the galaxy s 3 runs apps very well and i love the display.

I'd stay with the SIII for the mere fact that its just that much powerful than the Galaxy Nexus. Plus it you can sell it by the time the new Nexus comes out anyway.

I'd say this.
Never used an S3, but the resale value on it will likely be much greater than the Nexus due to its low price in the Play Store.
