Sprint's rocking it as of late with the high-end handsets, and the Motorola PHOTON 4G and Google Nexus S 4G are no exception.  The PHOTON 4G offers a 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 4.3-inch qHD PenTile display, 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, front-facing shooter, global roaming capabilities, and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with Motorola's custom UI.  The Nexus S 4G, on the other hand, sports a single-core 1 GHz Hummingbird processor, 4-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 5-megapixel camera, front-facing camera, and a stock build of Android 2.3.

Android die-hards are going to love the Nexus S 4G considering it has a vanilla build of the popular OS, but the PHOTON 4G offers a ton of features sure to please anyone that wants a high-end Android smartphone.  Which one will win the fight?  Part 1 of 2.
