    The iPhone has navigation (I would expect it to. lol.), but its not free and integrate like Google's navigation. Also, I can agree that the 'retina' display is better, but then again I can't. As a big media person, I like Super Amoled better. For text and in pictures in most cases, yea the retina display does give a better experience.

    Dont be to hasty to jump on the iphone wagon if it hits verizon on tuesday. Whispers about the iphone 5 are already surfacing. Some say as soon as this summer so your best bet is to wait anyway.

    The only thing the iphone has is the very nice retina display (theirs is tiny and we'll have improved, much larger android ones on the way), videocalling (theirs is only over wifi and we'll have the real deal soon), and rounded corners (because their target market kept poking their eyes out on sharper ones).

    Thats kinda subject to individual interest, stuff like widgets ok, but there is nothing major one can do that the other can't.

    The iphones biggest drawback is at&t. Now if verizon gets the iphone Tuesday... suppose it just goes back to customization & what not.

    True it's not free, however $30 IMO isn't the end of the world and there are benefits of having the maps loaded onto the phone vs using data for google maps, at least you can still navigate without service. That happened to me :(

    Display is just personal preference (as is most anything) I love the retina display, I think it blows amoled in every way including media and certianly in bright/outdoor settings.

    And Apple :icon_eek:

    Well, everything is VERY polished on the iPhone due to apple's anal attitude, but the con to that is well, keeping a strangle hold on customization.

    True but there is still a limit on what you can customize on an iPhone vs an Android.
    Jailbroken lphones or rooted Androids are another matter.

    I agree stock to stock, android stomps.

    Rooted to jailbroken, really depends on the user.

    Doesn't the 5.0 update that came out a few weeks ago add that? I recall caching maps and offline navigation.

    LMAO....this is one thing that is really annoying me about android development, quality just isn't there yet, any app compared to the AppStore counterpart, is a lesser app.
