    I had a NexusOne a few months ago and it broke, I Had a G2 and it fell in water. so I went with a Dell Venue Pro. The DVP has been nothing but a POS in everyway :mad:. Im looking to go back to a Android. I didn't like the G2.
    Should I buy a used NexusOne off ebay/craigslist for $300 or buy a new Nexus S?
    I dont see any other big android phones coming out, the Pyramid and Optimus X2 are amazing but have no release dates. I might as well get another Nexus and sell it when those other dual core phones come out.

    The Nexus One was a solid phone. But I think it's near the end of it's life cycle, at least from Google and future OS upgrades. I voted S :)

    The nexus S is the better phone, but not by much.

    Nexus one because I don't like having a phone without expandable memory. It's just easier to transfer music and stuff to a different phone then if it's all on the phone.

    Both. However, if I must vote for one, Nexus S. The GPU, touch screen, storage space, and lack of future features like a front facing camera, gyroscope, and NFC show that the Nexus One has played its last show. It was a good run, but it's time to move on to better things.

    The one aspect the Nexus S has over the Nexus One so much is the touchscreen sensitivity and accuracy. HTC changed its screens right after the Nexus One in time for the Droid Incredible and HTC Desire.

    The Nexus S in my experience is a bit glitchy which is what you expect from volunteering for the bleeding edge. But with Google directly responsible, updates are priority and I'm confident it will all get fixed out.

    The Nexus One is still a fast phone and the body remains beautiful. But the Nexus S looks and feels like a work of art.

    Also another clincher for the Nexus S is that it has a large amount of internal phone memory compared to the Nexus One. I think its like over 1gb to install apps while the Nexus One has 170mb. I get low memory errors on my N1.
