Head to Head: iPhone vs. Android
Wasn't much comparison going on.
Tom spends most of his time complaining about problems he has with his Droid X. Robert spends most of his time telling Tom it's all his own fault, because he never has problems with his phone. Any actual comparisons of the iPhone to Android appear to be purely a means of supporting their arguments.
Sounds a lot like the forum, actually.
There's not much to compare. The differences are extremely marginal once people get past their own biases. They are virtually perfect substitues, at least as far as smartphones. Seems the Android tablets have a little bit of a way to go yet.
Nice find. I thought that the writer of the second opinion was fair to both sides. I don't think he went on a "Lets attack Apple" binge like the writer of the first opinion did. Don't you just love it when a politician tells you what somebody else is going to say before they say it?
I'm in the same position of the writer of the second opinion, I have the app store for my iPad and of course the Market for my Droid. Both have their plusses and minuses. I really don't have a preference of one over the other, I think search capabilities is about the same.
Interesting read for those of you who might be thinking of betraying…..whoops I mean changing to the iPhone.
BTW if you are thinking about it, I'd wait until the summer just in case that iPhone 5 pops up. Your money, your decision.

worst. comparison article. ever. </comic book guy>
someone from the comments had it right - it's "idealized view of IOS Vs the single Android phone you happen to use"
seriously, what's wrong with these people... perhaps someone on this forum should do a real iOS vs Android OS article focusing on the real difference between the operating systems and not argue about carrier greed, bloatware or one person's one device's bugs...
iphone thread alert
better close this thread
so, meanwhile, back at the farm, what are we gonna do on the 11th?
will the imonster have it's own section? will it be acceptable then?
i guess it's time to get serious... or not
And that's also a key point. A lot of this seems to be user error, and maybe that's the fairest point that Android has more potential for user error, but also more potential. A victim of its own success, if you will. And that proves nothing more than being a personal matter of which OS is better for a specific individual.
