    I have some "geeky" friends who love their android phones. But more of my friends whom I convinced to switch to android went back to the iphone, sigh...

    Survey says Android owners secretly suffer iPhone-envy

    "Android owners are four times more likely to covet an iPhone than vice
    versa. Specifically, a third of Android owners polled admitted to suffering
    severe iPhone-envy, whilst just seven per cent of iPhone users said that
    they’d prefer an Android-powered smartphone."

    Not true for me. I like my app drawer, but I prefer having it as a drawer and not the entirety of the OS. :)

    Not true for me either. I don't have any app icons on my home screen and I like the customization that the OS offers. Then again, I'm a tweaker anyways and rarely leave things alone if I know ho to mod them.

    Not for me. I don't like apple at all, so iphone just isn't even on my radar.

    I have an iPod Touch, which is pretty close to the iPhone, and I easily would be the Android OS. There is just so much more to do it on that on an iPhone. Droid > iPhone

    I had a cingular 8125 and hated it. Went to a razor to give the smartphones a chance to improve.then jumped on the iphone wagon.

    Was never happy from day one.

    I came from an iphone...

    I WILL NEVER GO BACK.

    Now with my DX... I was happy with it since I brought it home

    Count me in. I originally wanted an iphone when they first came out but after seeing how stagnated the os is seeing how much has changed with android I can safely say I made the right decision.

    My mobile OS preferences are
    1. Android
    2. WinMo
    3. Symbian
    4. iOS
    5. RIM

    So I have no immediate desire to get an iPhone

    a little off topic, but what kept you from switching to another smartphone?

    I mean 3 and you hate it with a passion, would've thought you learned by the 2nd iphone...
