    why did anyone upgrade to the d3 then? That wasn't a 4g phone and there were other 4g android phones available at the time of the D3 release.

    Like I said in another thread, it looks like An Android Iphone, An Iphone 5 Prototype, and Im sure googles lawyers are already working on all the lawsuits that google will undoubtedly file for patent violations. I wasn't impressed in the slightest. Most Iphone users don't know android has voice recognition, so to them its new and great ..

    What about Android voice commands?

    I'm envisioning a guy standing in the middle of a crowded Biker Bar whispering," remind my to call my wife as soon as I leave work to see what she wants me to grab at the store on the way home" and then pan to a biker turning around... Close up on his eyes as they morph into the Droid bionic's eyes... Flash of bright light... -Droid activation notification- and we fade back in to see "Chet" lying flat on his back , nestled in his personal iCloud... The scene closes with Cartman yelling," this AnDroid Bastar..s killed Kenn... er.. Chet"

    Android Voice Commands is not even close to what Siri does.

    Plus voice commands have been around for about 10 years in cell technology. It's not like Android was the first to do it. Android has been very innovative on features and Apple has some of their own too, Siri happens to be one of their cool innovations.

    Siri looks cool, but I think it's one of those 'look what my phone can do' features which won't be useful to everyone in real world scenarios.

    Sure it is if you know how to use it, and for (Friendly) arguments sake, do you really think google isn't going to one up Apple?? C'mon look what googles done in 2 years thats taken apple, what 6 or 7 years to do.

    Yea it has a dual core chip....so has Android phones since the beginning of this year. And the "new" features of iOS5...well...lol

    The tech enthusiast will bring up the dual core chip thats in it is amazing. Thats great, but the Exynos and OMAP4 is no slouch too. Android phones are about to surpass the retina display screen res in a couple of months. Its great for ppl that really dont want Android and really want an iPhone or iOS.

    And like I mentioned before, if the antenna is tested again and has the same fatal flaw of the iPhone 4....the iPhone 4S is a complete fail IMO.

    I take it Verizon wont be getting the iPhone 4S?

    I would be surprised if an android commercial showing Google Voice does not come out soon so Iphone users know android also has a feature like this. (Also, how much power does Siri need to do this that it won't work on the IPhone 4, google voice worked on the OG Droid.)

    So, I see your point, but then again that's once of the differences between Android and Apple. Apple customers are some of the most loyal customers there are. When they see a new phone, they start drooling and get this glassy look in their eyes. Also, if you want the Apple experience, you don't have a choice of another manufacturer. With Android, we thankfully do. However, I would assume that those who upgraded to the D3 did so because they wanted the QWERT keyboard and some upgrades, but didn't really care about 4G. If I didn't live in an area with 4G, I would have considered the Droid 3.

    I do see your point though. I just think if this had been the 4G iPhone 5, the need for the iPhone 3G would be negligible because they would still have the iPhone 4 and 4s as 3G phones.

    I would absolutely LOVE for you to be right about this. I will say that you're spot on when it comes to innovation. Apple may come out with really great, beautiful ideas, but it does take forever for them to become reality. Google is great about churning updates out constantly.

    Yes, iPhone doesn't have force close notification, the app just disappears from the screen and you find yourself on the homescreen... it happens often enough.

    I've never had a low memory notication.. even on my OG Droid. I haven't had any of the above issues on my Droid 3.. other than random reboots.. and that was the phone itself which was replaced and hasn't happened since.

    You have to remember Android develops very very quickly.... so citing issues of the past isn't going to help your argument.

    Who's citing issues of the past? I have a BIONIC and have experienced every one of the three that I listed. Take a walk over to the BIONIC Tech Support Forum and take a look for yourself!
