Either one of the phones from the samsung galaxy series...in terms of open....

Reliable.....droid original or incredible....


What do you value more? Life or Image?

Google/Samsung Nexus S by far is the least crapware laden Android Phone.

It's basically a developer level phone designed to take the place of the old Nexus. It comes "vanilla". No carrier crapware or bloatware.

Fucking faggots sold me on their warranty, touting in-store replacement and giftcards and shit.

Now they are telling me they have to send it out and wait 30 days.

I'm burning some shit down. Fuck Best Buy, fuck motorola, and fuck google for allowing their platform to become so fucked up.

Yeah I'm fucking mad. I hate when retailers fucking fleece people with the "at our discretion" clause.

"at our discretion" means "We will tell you this is what will happen, then our discretion will fuck you in the ass"

Fucking shitheads. What a bunch of scam artists.

Fuck it. I'm selling this shit to some assbag on ebay, then I'm paying cash for a fucking iphone. Fuck em.

To each their own I guess. I have the Nexus One for writing apps for it. It is stock Android OS, none of the other bloat crap that manufacturers put on it.

Angela got the Epic 4G and it honestly looked comprable to buying a Dell laptop - 1000 popups and apps and shit you will never use and cannot remove -- and likely drain your battery.

I got the Epic 4g and it is indeed full of spam. All sorts of Sprint apps that I don't want and not sure how to remove (but too lazy to research how to do it/root the phone.)

Battery life is absolutely abysmal. Amusing enough, they give you a shit USB charger that takes forever to fully charge the phone instead of a real charger.

Last but not least, signal quality is abysmal as well. My 10 year old Nokia had better reception that this POS.

I don't know what you should get, but I would pass on the Galaxy S lineup.
