Im getting a smart phone soon! But im having trouble deciding what phone I should get. :(
Ive been eying an iphone because my iTouch's headphone jack is broken, but also ive been checking out the Sony Xperia PLAY, because A) Its a PSP in a phone, and B)I can finally play Minecraft. But its bulk may be a problem, and I have no idea how to mod one to get custom firmware. Anyways, id probably buy a iphone 4s on Kijiji, but my friends willing to sell me the Xperia for 100$. What should I get? I know apple has the iPhone 4s or whatever coming out.

Big fan of android, but I think the iPhone is gonna be a better option between those two.

OT - Have you seen this? It would be my recommendation.

Nexus Prime>GSII if he has Verizon. Pure Vanilla Android, better screen. But still, I think I'm going with Brent and getting the 4S

Once the 4s gets jailbroken, lookout! Open-ness of Android with the solid iOS.

Crait got the Xperia play, and he loves the damn thing. It's pretty cool, I've seen them in person.

Just picked up my iPhone 4S. Loving it so far, just wish it was jailbroken. Guess I'm stuck with plan 'ol iOS for a bit.

Trying Samsung which is my favorite brand. Good design and reasonable price. moreover, the camera's filter is an exceptional one.
