HTC Desire HD (Ace) or Nexus S?
      04/11/11 09:55 PM

Hey guys! I'm stuck with yet another decision. I don't know which phone to get! I want to get the Desire HD (same form factor of the HD7, and same internals pretty much! Just different OS) or the Nexus S. For me, battery life is really important as I spend all day on my phone (music, pictures, messaging, and remote desktoping). I'm coming from the iPhone 4 at the moment, love it, but its tiny screen is killing me. I have read that the Desire HD and HD7 have VERY bad battery life. Where as some places say that the Nexus S has FANTASTIC battery life!

Maybe could someone enlighten me on both? I would PREFER the Desire HD for its larger screen, but if I can't get through the majority of the day with it, then it's worthless. Today for example I had my iPhone 4 with full bars on 3G drop from 100% to 50% in 3.5 hours of near constant use of navigation (pictures / browsing / emails / whatsapp & gtalk) and music for 2 hours of the 3.5.

I've had the dell streak, fantastic phone with horrid battery life while listening to mp3s. I'm now tired of iOS and I want something with Android permanently.

What do you think? Which would be better?

Thanks in advance.
