    My contract is up for renewal with verizon. I have the option to get the iphone 4 with unlimited data or get a droid 4G unlimited data.

    I like the iphone size right now. It's not too big or too small. When iOs 5 comes out this fall it would be great with the advance features.

    As for the droid, there phones are nice but I hate the 4.3 in screen. It's just way too big.

    Verizon is doing to do away with there unlimited data soon and replace it with tier pricing. I am undecided what to get. If I get the iphone 4 (ios5) i will be locked into 3G with unlimited data and when my 2 yr contract is up I will have to switch over to 4G at a higher price. If I go with Droid, I will get unlimited data and grandfather in to the system.

    I dont think iphone 5 will be release this year. Iphone 4 is going to get iOs 5 this fall and no way Apple will release a new iphone 5 with iOs 5 in the same year.

    What would you do?

    Considering this is droidforums.net, I imagine 95% of the people on this site would choose a droid over an iphone anyday, regardless of iOS 's new features. Its all about preference though, so your best bet is to go to the store and play with both andsee which YOU like better.

    I have a droid for my work phone and it's okay. Never had an iphone before that that is tempting me. Are there any 4inch screen from droid to be released soon.

    If the iphone 5 does get released it will be later this year. Seeing as AT&T is supposed to upgrade their network to LTE Q3-4 of this year. But I partially agree with you that it probably won't get released until early next year. It's really a preference thing. As the other poster mentioned, it would be best to go to the store and try both of them out, and see what you like and don't like about each one.

    The only Droid with 4G capabilities right now is the Charge, so, I would say wait for either the iPhone 5 or the next 4G Droid. Hoping its Bionic of coarse.

    I think iphone 5 will be release till Jan. If I had to pick a phone to get grandfather into the system at unlimited data I think I would go with the Bionic.

    My wife wants to switch from the OG Droid to the IPhone - I heard rumors the 5 would be out July/August.

    Also I want the Bionic - rumors says it's 4.5 inches... can that even fit in jeans?

    I am kinda in the same situation, although I am not considering the iPhone but rather the Droid X2. I decided that I am going to wait for my ideal 4G phone to release, probably the Bionic. I decided not to get a 3G phone, even though 4G has a lot of rough edges. I just plan on having my next phone for 20-24 months and don't want to be locked into a phone with outdated capabilities.

    I say, go 4G.

    I could never give up widgets and customization for an iphone. My wife has the iphone 3g and she loves it, but then she is not a geek like me. :)

    Don't get me wrong, Iphones/Ipods do have a good purpose. I bought my son an ipod touch 2g on his 4th birthday, and my other son an ipod touch on his 3rd and my daughter an ipod touch 4g on her 8th birthday. So I am not against Apple products (unless buying for me), I think they are great for kids, always been that way. But when it comes to owning a "Smart" phone, sure Apple led the way, but Droid has made the "Genius" phone, and that is what geeks need. :)
