    I'd have to see the stats for Incredible S to say for sure, but I really enjoy HTC Sense and their products in general, so I'd go for the HTC personally.

    Wow this is really hard. Though you already have a Nexus One the instinctive answer is the Nexus S.

    Personally I already owned a Samsung Nexus S and loving it, and at the same time, covering the Droid Incredible 2 to replace my Droid Incredible on my CDMA line. (Yeah I'm a nut that has both a GSM and a CDMA line). The DINC2 is basically the CDMA version of the Incredible S.

    Its not going to help you one bit but I'm going to say, you can't lose with both. You have to decide first of all, do you want vanilla Android or do you want HTC Sense? The answer to that question has often been mostly personal and of taste. I can give you gazillion reasons for the vanilla and I can also give you gazillion reasons for HTC Sense. I got long experiences in both, and they both have their pluses and minuses.

    For comparison videos there are tons in YouTube, I suggest head there and go view video reviews of the Nexus S and various HTC phones, the latter to give you a 'sense' what Sense is all about.

    The Incredible S (IS) is a good all-round phone that is newer and a bit cheaper than Nexus S.
    Also, IS has a better camera, more RAM, and probably will be more popular than Nexus S.

    Just to clear a few things up first:

    It has less RAM, but the RAM is much faster, and Android doesn't use 768 Mb of RAM effectively anyway.

    The Processor is a draw in my opinion. It has a weaker FPU, but is better at other aspects.
    But for the processor, I would still go for the Hummingbird (Nexus S)

    The Graphics chip is obvious, the SGX 540 totally crushes the Adreno 205.

    The Nexus S is lighter and thinner, but some prefer the Incredible S design though.
    The Incredible S wins in a way here, but I still prefer the Nexus S design (sexy black <3)

    The screen, where should I start...
    Faster response (better video), deeper blacks, more vivid colours, thinner, and its curved so it fits your face better.
    It also supports infinite touches, though its not supported by the kernel.

    It also comes with a gyroscope for better gaming, and a NFC chip inside.

    And not to forget that it will get faster Android updates.

    And one funny thing: The Nexus S does actually have a FM Radio inside, but its disabled :p

    I have more reasons, but I don't think you need more

    And as the Nexus S has a Pentile screen, text is going to be fuzzier.
