    The Droid beat it in "Features" and spanked in the "Call Quality & Performance" categories. Those are most important to me. Pinch & Zoom and multitouch enabled in the native apps gave the 3GS the edge in "Web browsing".

    Also the Droid was still running 2.0. When 2.1 with P&Z arrives, let's revisit this.

    I'm sure it wasn't even running 2.0.1....which seems to be the case for EVERY comparison!! If they are going to do that they should only be allowed to run the 3.0 software for iPhone!

    I want to see a REAL test.

    800Mhz OC Droid vs iPhone 3GS!

    I'm totally confused. Title says we are talking about the Nexus in the Droid General Forum but conversation went straight to Droid.:confused:

    because the Droid lost on a subjective category. They said the iPhone was better looking. Thus it lost.....

    Too me the iPhone's sleekness is a little to feminine for my liking. So if I was on the panel the results would have been differnt.

    The Iphone only has one thing in my opinion Droid needs fixed! "The look" The droid is ugly to a non techy person that does not know of its potential. I played with it at the store a few time before I was sold. I love how they always talk about how many apps apple has, who cares if you have 99,900 apps that are worthless.

    The Nexus One will take care of that market when it comes to Verizon.

    The Droid is like the Hummer (H1) which to me is VERY appealing.

    I've always said that the iPhone is no doubt a great device but it's too "girly and pretty" in my opinion.

    The Droid like a Glock is just a great looking piece of equipment : )

    You guys like how they gave the last round to the droid, a perfect five, but the iphone SOMEHOW got the exact number to keep the tie?

    i call phone shenanigans!

    Ahh, the old form vs function debate.

    I think, for some strange reason, that most "techy" people like the look of the Droid. I think for casual people they like the rounded glossy look of the iPhone.

    As a matter of fact, my friend today said "Damn this phone is hot, it can do so much stuff its amazing. I just don't like the way it looks" and I asked what he meant, he said he likes phones with rounded corners. He's just a regular run of the mill non techy person, and I can see where he is coming from.

    But, like I've said before, with my Droid overclocked running Smoked Glass, hands down NO CONTEST it smokes the iPhone.

    The Nexus, however... hmm. Debatable.

    If N1 comes to Verizon, it will be tough for the Droid. If Verizon carries all three phones, Droid, N1 and iPhone. I will pick either the iPhone and N1 over the Droid in a heartbeat.

    CNET says iphone looks better because of rounded edges? do they expect me to take them seriously after saying that?
