I have used sammy and moto phones on VZW, and I have used sammy touchwiz phones on t-mobile as well as a galaxy nexus. They are different skins for the most part with a few major changes from the standard OS. I would only be happy with a nexus product because I need to have the latest software updates on the day they are released and they have to be for my particular phone. I know that I could flash a rom, but I really have no desire to do that or keep up with it in user forums. I stopped jailbreaking my iphone a long time ago, couldn't be happier. The main difference for me is, and I know many of you are going to hate this, is that the iOS UI feels more intuitive and that's an important distinction for me because I'm a UX designer, so good UI weighs heavy. This isn't to say that Android has bad UI, I just like iOS better at the moment.
