What phone should I get?

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.

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.

Re: What phone should I get?

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.
