    I need some help. My super visor is a hardcore Mac fan, and my coworkers seem to be followers of him, even though they don’t know anything about hardware and software.

    So it’s basically 1 vs 6 when it comes to these massive debates.

    My super visor says the IP4’s processor is better than the Droid X’s processor, and that he can prove it because he can draw and create 3D art using his 3D graphics editor App.
    But how does that prove its processor is more powerful than the Droid’s? I couldn’t find any 3D graphic Editor apps on the Android Market to shut him up, so I guess that all felt victorious in that 4 hour debate.dancedroid:iphone:

    But what is it, truly, that makes the Iphone4 better than the Droid X? Only thing I see better is the number of Apps, but that’s not Hardware related.
    Can Droid X handle 3d Graphics editors?
    What is it that iPhone4 do that Droid X cant also do?
    I heard the Iphone 4 cant run Flash, but Droid X can, but my Super Visor said, nobody wants Flash not even Apple, because it mess up the Security of the phone, making it easy to hacks.

    Is this true? If so, is the Flash really an asset to the Droid X? if so, what makes it a positive?

    lol, everyone with an iphone will tell you that flash is trash, until they get it. i know the iphone has two camera, the droid x only has one.

    i have had no problems with flash on my X. videos play crisp thru Dolphin.

    i also think with the iphone, you can text and talk or talk and browse the web at the same time. im not sure, never used an iphone before.

    I believe with the iphone through verizon you will not be able to browse and talk at the same time unlike the AT&T version of iphone...the X can do both.

    and iphone has its own proprietary "flash" type capability but content for the iphone is still limited to the istore and the like, I believe...

    That depends. Through AT&T I believe you can, but with the iPhone coming to Verizon, the way Verizon has their network, you won't be able to do that on Verizon with the iPhone.

    It's the network that controls data and voice and being able to use both at the same time or not. On Verizon's network (CDMA) you can't use data and be on the phone at the same time. On AT&T's network (GSM) you are able to use data and be on the phone at the same time.

    Therefore:

    iPhone4 (AT&T): Yes, you can use data and voice at the same time.
    iPhone4 (Verizon): No, you can not use data and voice at the same time.
    Droid X (Verizon): No, you can not use data and voice at the same time.

    The iPhone 4's screen resolution is also insanely better, much more pixels, smaller screen. processors are about the same.

    iPhone is generally more fluid-smooth with things like screen switching, etc.
    This is ONLY because everything in it is built specifically for it (processor, screen, multitouch sensor, software), whereas the Droid X (Android), the software is more like Java, where it is built to run on an infinite amount of differenty spec'd devices. This allows for a vast array of features, like USB ports, HDMI ports etc, but does hinder a very small bit in the "feel" of smoothness going through menus and other things.

    Overall, both phones are great at what they do, both have positives and negatives. I say show off your positives when he shows off his lol

    I agree the iphone has a crisper screen, BUT, that's not to say the X's is a slouch by any means. It's very clear and plenty sharp for me. And, with 22% larger screen, it's hard to go back to a 3.5"er after having the X.

    Also ask him to download any 16 bit game ever made (rom gripper), then use a wiimote to control the game, next ask him to connect it to his HD the and play from his couch. Also ask him to pull his battery and swap his SD card.

    Ok today. he told me, that the OS of Iphone4, makes it Superior to the Android OS,
    which is why he can edit videos without rendering them.

    well for Droids, can we also edit videos without rendering them?

    Look my Omnia has wifi N . Does that make it superior to Android?
    My Omnia has built in Outlook. Does that make it superior to Android and iPhone?
    My Omnia has built in ettiquite mode does that make it superior to my Inc?
    My Inc can do many things an iPhone can't do and an iPhone can do many things my Inc can't
    You are spitting in the wind with the whole debate with an iPhone or Android sheep.
    Speed and power mean nothing if it doesn't do what you want it to do.
