    I have an iphone 3gs and am pretty tired of it .. my upgrade is well due . what do you guys think of the Nexus S ?
    A bit meh tbh. Not nearly powerful enough considering the nest gen of Tegra phones are round the corner.

    I know. I never get round to changing them, and I am very fussy when it comes to such things. It would take me hours to find some I like.

    I didn't like the Gingerbread style notification bar at first but I've grown to really like it now

    I don't have a clue what you are on about :sad:

    Vanilla is Android how Google originally intend it to be (what runs on the Nexus One/S. HTC/Samsung/LG etc etc all add things (skins/apps/etc), I personally do not like what LG has decided to do to their flavoured ROM hence why I want to root and install Vanilla on it :erm:
    Ok...let's just leave it at that. I was just saying that you don't see a lot of phones that have Vanilla on cos the manufacturers do whatever they want with them. :p:

    Yup, I've gone on a custom ROM and the gingerbread theme is compatible so I always use it after flashing. I kinda want 2.3 to come out soon for the SGS so I don't have to keep applying themes but hey what can you do.

    Imho the rate that Android is going I don't think iOS is going to be able to keep up, it will always have a following due to it's cult nature but I actually think the phones that are coming out on Android are superior and I don't think the iPhone will match it anyway. Besides I could never see myself going back to iOS after using Android.

    I think the main problem (for me anyway) is that, besides HTC, every Android phone needs some kind of tinkering to get it working right. That's annoying. iPhone works great out the box, although it is limited and to get your moneys worth it needs to be be jailbroke. The other little annoyance which I'm sure google will iron out, is the bugginess. There are odd crashes, scrolling jerkiness (big problem imo which will grate a lot of users coming from Apple), reboots etc. Android still does not feel like a finished product, whereas iOS is slick and fluid but more limited.

    I don't see Apple going anywhere any time soon, they will be the leader for a while yet imo. Android will overtake iOS in the os war but Apple will still be the leader in the pack imo. The App Store (inc games) is the other big plus point for iOS.

    AS in background images?

    Search for "wallpaper" and "background" on the Market - plenty of apps there that have loads available.

    I know what you mean, I bought the SGS knowing full well I'd have to play around with it and tbh it's quite fun I'm getting addicted to flashing my phone every other day. It's why I enjoy using Android more, each phone has so many devs coming up with fixes for literally everything trying to make the phone the finished product it should have been. Like for my phone, Samsung never put in an LED for notification so instead they made a fix so that the two buttons lit up when you've had a missed call/message or whatever and it works just as well imo.

    I'm not saying Apple are dead but I do think that Android is coming on a lot faster than Apple is and you can see that game developers are starting to make games for both platforms.

    There is an app called NoLED which does a great job for phones sans LED
