So all of these reviews I am reading keep comparing it to the iPhone. In general they come to the conclusion that it is the 2nd best smart phone ever made.
With that in mind here is my review from comparing both, through comparing both.
Droids is bigger, brighter and clearer. Video looks better on the Droid compared to the iPhone and the rendering of text with such high resolution makes it far easier on the eyes.
Droid takes this hands down even if the iPhone has had 3 tries. The Droid is a 3rd Generation gaming system and the iPhone is an oridinal Nintendo. Thats how far off the comparison is here.
Ok, Ok, the keyboard isn't perfect. Its far from perfect. It's like having a high definition TV and watching the local news through rabbit ears. To me thats absolutely irrelevant.
There is a HUGE screen that has a very responsive keyboard. If you dont like or need the QWERTY then just dont use it. I am actually upset at these reviews here. It is one of the few places these reviews knock the phone compared to the iPhone but there is no justification. None bother comparing the touch screen to touch screen. The physical QWERTY is a bonus on this phone and its cool to have if you choose to use it. The phone is so close in size to the iPhone that if you dont use the physical keyboard no biggie. Its the same size phone so pretend it doesn't exist.
Again a lot of ridiculous reviews here. Some quick google searching will find plenty of shots from this phone. From what I have seen in the reviews and my own photos taken there is absolutely no reason you should ask for more from a camera. There is a 5mp camera here with dual LED flash and auto focus. With the open source OS someone will have an application that makes the camera/focus work a little faster than it is now. The camera here has more features (dual led, better video recorder etc) than the iPhone does.
Apples is hands down larger by 90k applications. Here Apple wins with an astericks like Barry Bonds should have next to his home run record. Apple is well known for blocking applications and Google simply wont. While many doubted that Big Red would actually leave the phone open they have proven that its true with this Droid. Apple is losing developers for the App store at the same rate that the Android marketplace is gaining them. That along with the 88 million customers that the VZW network opens up to mobile developers means the Android market will be HUGE soon. For now Apple wins with a lot of redundancy but the Android marketplace will surpass in the future.
Ummmmmmmm where to start here. Another frustrating place in the reviews. Apple has had how many years now to work on iTunes and the media player in the iPhone? Its a lot of years. Playing music, playlists etc on the iPhone is better for sure in comparison. But then as I play with the Droid more and more, and read more reviews... something hits me. I dont feel that the media player is that bad at all on the Droid its just not as good as the iPhones. But wait... the Droid has a removable 16gb expandable to 32gb card. The sound of music and videos on the Droid is absolutely better and the picture isnt comparable at all. With the Droid unanamously having better audio, video quality on playback etc it is clearly the winner here. I dont understand how they say the iPhone is better here. I used one for years and its not comparable in video or audio.
Yes I am an instant fanboy of the Droid. I keep reading reviews that say the iPhone browser is faster. Lies!
Here are some facts about this one.
The VZW network runs faster than ATT's at its peak and bottom and has a continous data speed that is also faster.
The VZW network is 5x larger which they are proud of for sure because its all they talk about.
The phones processor is 2x that of the iPhone and larger.
The Droid DOES DO MULTITOUCH and since anyone can access the OS programming its a matter of time before it works on the (or another) browser.
The Droids browser is faster and the pages are better on the eyes.
I will probably write more later. Football and phone are keeping my attention today but I think this needs to be put out there. People are being fanboys in the reviews and I actually can't find a reason anyone would buy an iPhone anymore. Not one.
My gut says this bad boy is to get the phone out there with sheer power
