    I currently have the first Gen mytouch and have had nothing but problems. I hate it! I love android though. Right now I'm on the flex plan or whatever, so I can cancel and I can switch to my dad's plan so I will have the upgrade discount.

    I'm looking for a good android phone so I can actually be able to update to 2.1 at least. I'm on 1.6 lol. I really like the nexus one, but I'm also looking at the vibrant and waiting for reviews/problems to arise.

    Are there any problems with the nexus one? I was reading somewhere it had like unlock problems or something with screen detection or something. I could be wrong.

    I got to have something with a 1ghz processor though. I'm trying to research this time before I get screwed again and get another "mytouch" lol

    Get the Vibrant, you won't regret it. Samsung did everything right with this phone. Check out my blog in my sig and watch my unboxing video. A full review should be up soon.

    If anything, you can buy it at the T-Mobile store and have 14 days (30 days in California) to try it out. The worst thing that can happen is paying a $10 restocking fee.

    Hey guys thanks for the Replies.

    I'm really considering the Vibrant, but I'm kinda stuck on the nexus one too lol. I'm checking out the video now. That's my favorite part of electronics, the unboxing! lol..

    Well just watched it, and that was awesome.

    Now I'm stuck, Nexus One or Vibrant. I'm thinking Vibrant mainly because it's new :)

    The only pro I see with the Nexus One is that it would most likely to get the first update of every Android version that it can support in the future. For example, it was the first one to get Froyo while others have to wait for the manufacturer to kick the update to the rest of the users.

    Probably should have showed you this first:
    YouTube - ???S vs HTC Desire 3D ?? ??, Galaxy S

    its showing the main difference between the snapdragon and the hummingbird. Both devices are running the game Quake. And the Galaxy S is on the right. That video right there convinced me on the hummingbird processor.

    And like what the previous post said, since it is the Google phone, the Nexus One will get the updates first. People also call the Nexus One as the developers phone. However, if you're just a consumer and just looking for a nice phone, the Vibrant will be a much better choice.

    Right now, you cannot get a new Nexus One in the US at all. Google has stopped selling them.

    Nexus One is dead now, so you should opt for Vibrant or wait for MyTouch HD (3.75G baby).

    especially since you can get the $10 internet plan vs getting a tmobile branded phone you have to get the $30 one.. thats $240 savings every single year !!!!!

    The vibrant doesn't have a flash for the camera!!! That's really annoying in my opinion. There's no other good phones with t mobile other than the nexus one (which we can't get right now through them), and the galaxy s.

    The largest issue I have with Samsung phones is their lack of support and updates. They would rather you buy a new device than spend the time/cycles of putting out updates. It's like they think their customers are inconsiderate for wanting updates for their devices and that it's inconceivable to think about putting together Dev teams to UPDATE their stuff.
