I operate both phones on a daily, before anyone tries to say anything about my comments to come, I've owned both in tandem as long as they have both been out.
First, apple iPhone, or the ifail as I call it. Since jobs died, the company has gone down hill. The iPhone is reliable, as long as you don't upgrade to any of their new os for atleast 6mos after its released, in comparison droid works kind of the same....
Except the coveted iPhone can't be fixed by anyone but apple, the droid is constantly changing by both owners and operators. Typing on the iPhone is a better experience, atleast I find myself less frustrated with it then I do with any droid device I have owned.
Apps, really.... Seriously anything that's worth a crap is available on both platforms, don't argue apps anymore. All it proves is you spend to much time on your phone and nit pick just for the sake of it.
I do like my iPhone a lot, its easy to use, easy to get music on and never changes.... That's also the problem if I decided I don't like the way something works on an iPhone, well tuff because I can't change it. With any droid based devices I can do whatever I want, even if I don't its nice to have that option.
I dont see the innovation in apple anymore, i see them take others and brand it as their own, the resent controversy over apples business dealings is enough to make me outraged.
I am stuck with both phones, the over under is apple wins in simple user task and longevity, it looses in all other categories IMHO.
To compare a droid user to a 40 year old man in a supped up scion.... Well you've got on thing right, the droid can be supped up, the iphone is as proprietary as a prius battery..... It only fits a prius.
I probably will always have both, but will never buy a apple product for anyone else, ilk save the cash and get them a droid.
