    I am lost.. How is navigation on the iphone better? I have used both phones and it isn't even close. Just like everything else there are pros and cons to both phones and both phones are really great but in my opinion Droid takes navigation hands down.


    Never mind.. I misread it. They are talking about User Interface navigation. I would agree plain Android does not offer the best UI.

    It doesn't refer to GPS navigation but rather navigating about the phone's screens, apps, etc. And on this the iPhone wins for simplicity. but then, the addition of features almost always adds complexity to UI navigation. Compromise...

    Yeah, I just realized I misread that statement. They are correct in the iphone being simplistic but sometimes that simplicity makes things inefficient. I would rather a bit of a learning curve then to be limited to what my phone can do.

    I agree full heartedly. That's why I own a droid and not an iPhone. :)

    The only phone that will take out the iPhone is the next iPhone. Period.

    I would also take more options than simplicity. Droid wins IMO.

    exactly... people dont buy an iphone because of what it can do they buy it like they buy a pair of shoes or a hat. They look at what everyone else has and buys that..

    the iphone is a fashion accessory until the fad dies nothing will beat the iphone.

    Good fight but what gave the iPhone the win was the "looks". Thats subjective. Personally I love the looks of the Droid over the iPhone. Yes the iPhone is sleek and sexy and THAT is what I DO NOT like about it.

    I don't want my tech devices sexy. My women yes, but not my phone. The Droid has the looks and ruggedness that I prefer.

    iPhone comes to VZW tomorrow I would still keep the Droid. Not a knock on the iPhone because it is a phenomenal device but the Droid just does it for me.

    Pulled from the Prizefight. This is Brian Tong explaining his rating of a 3 for call quality on the iPhone:
    My question is how does a phone receive a 3 for call quality when it doesn't even receive the call?? Furthermore, how does a phone that is incompetent of it's primary function (making and receiving calls) win?

    because they liked the styling of it better thats why.

    As in my op it won on a subjective category.....

    It's like judging the winner of the Heavyweight Championship by the colors of the guys boxing trunks : )
