From my personal blog "iphone vs Droid ... NOT!"
I wrote this for my personal blog, thought id share.
It is my opinion that people are scared to call a Spade a Spade! Anytime you hear the question "Which is better, iPhone or Droid?" you always get some pretty good answers, but then its followed with the usual "This is just my opinion, you may feel differently"
Oh yea?? Exactly why would ANYONE feel differently? Aside from specs, lets just look at pure capabilities!
List the things that the iPhone CAN do, that the droid CANNOT ... go ahead .... im waiting .... is that pen working? ... mmhmm thought so.
You get the idea ....
List the things that the Droid CAN do, that the iPhone CANNOT ...
I dont like this keyboard, can i get a new one? BAM .. DONE!
Id like to setup a home screen for work, and a sepearate one for home BAM .. DONE!
I hate the way SMS/MMS look, wish i could change the format! BAM .. DONE!
Eww, the notifications go in that top bar? Id like to change that! BAM .. DONE!
Wish i had turn-by-turn voice GPS without paying for it! BAM .. DONE!
I wish i could benchmark my phone speed against others! BAM .. DONE!
Id like to download some XXX Apps! BAM ... DONE! (no pun)
Id like to see some animation on my home screen! BAM .. DONE!
I wish i could fill a few screens with Widgets so i don't have to open the app every time. BAM .. DONE!
I wish my browser supported some form of Flash! BAM .. DONE!
I wish i could buy an extended battery, or keep spare batteries! BAM .. DONE!
FROM A DEVELOPERS STANDPOINT:
Id like to submit apps, but not have them cross-checked it see if they compete with any of the phone manufacturers core features! BAM .. DONE!
Id like to submit my app to the market and not wait 5-10 days for them to possibly reject it! BAM .. DONE!
I currently own both the iPhone and the Moto Droid (dInc will be mine once the friggin thing is in stock!).
My honest opinion is that the iPhone is amazing at a few things (media player being one of them), and has definitely been the primary factor in raising the bar for user experience. But i think their days are numbered! It is my opinion the only thing keeping the iPhone up on its pedestal is the consumers attraction to apps, since they obviously have way more. But the Droid is catching up fast, and with no limitations or hurdles for developers, it will soon blow past Apple.
Thats my quick review, feel free to debate, or give feedback.
Shameless Plug! LauncherPro! Dont think about whether you need it or not, dont consider the options it might have, dont worry if it may not work right .. just go download it right now, pause reading this and go download it! It will completely change the experience on the phone for the better. It opens up options that you never knew you wish you had!
Okay now that your back, and you downloaded it .. post a "thanks" to me below :)
*Note, i dont work for them, or know anyone who has ... i just really love the app
