    Need help deciding....i waited forever for this thing , now imay return it for an iphone...TB seems not as fluid as the iphone and is a bit clumsy.

    Battery drains super fast...but if i keep it i will deff get extended batt

    Apps seem much more refined and smoother on iphone rather than droid....ehhh not sure

    Need some positives!!

    If you want an iphone get an iphone. It's your choice not ours.

    Just realize that from 100-80% it will drop down very quickly due to the way the battery reader is set up. Example, yesterday I went on a quest to drain my phone till it died. After 1.5 hours I went from 100-about 80%. However, the phone lasted about 11 hours till 15%. That was with video recording, uploading those videos to youtube, texting like crazy. But if I had done the math with the initial battery drop, I would have thought it wouldn't last long at all.

    Ignore the battery and try to use it till it dies after charging it fully. That's what convinced me that the initial drop is nothing to worry about.

    I would wait until the end of your 14 day return period to decide. That will give you more time to decide if the phone is right for you or not.

    Well I think the TB kills the iphone in everything as far as speed. Only thing the iphone has is battery life in my opinion. Which is also due to the fact that the iphone isn't 4G. I don't know how you could go from this brilliant 4.3" screen to the iphones mere 3.5". I would be like, what am I suppose to do on this screen lol

    A positive how about you dont have to pay for everything on a Driod phone. Yeah apple has an app for that, but it will cost you.

    iphones are also basically completly locked down arent they? Driod phones are more "opened"

    Your choices are either a slim 1600mAh that fits with no new cover, or a 2750mAh mammoth from Verizon/HTC. Seidio is also working on a larger extended battery.

    There's supposed to be a software update coming out this week too. I would definitely wait till after this week to make any decisions.

    You should totally return it and get the iPhone.
