It's a dogfight between two popular Android handsets on Sprint!  The Motorola PHOTON 4G sports a 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU, 4.3-inch qHD PenTile display, 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, front-facing camera, global roaming capabilities, a kickstand for easy viewing of media, and Android 2.3 with Motorola's custom UI.  The Google Nexus S 4G is powered by a single-core 1 GHz Hummingbird processor and has a 4-inch curved Super AMOLED Plus display, 5-megapixel camera, front-facing shooter, and a vanilla build of Android 2.3.

The Motorola PHOTON 4G is a feature-packed handset with an excellent wireless radio (seriously, signal strength is awesome), but the Nexus S 4G serves up a bloat-free build of Android.  Which one offers the best mix of everything?  Part 2 of 2.
