    Then you are one lucky individual. I've used at least 6 different android phones and they all lag when I do that.

    That lock screen lag might be software related. The Droid 1 with Froyo doesnt lag unlocking. Well....mine doesnt or it isnt all the time.

    Droid X on Froyo, unlocking there is still a lag alot of times. Droid X on Froyo and the WidgetLocker app, little or no lag. The WidgetLocker app might help on 2.1 too.

    What you don't understand is that NOONE HERE said the iPhone cured cancer! You on the other hand like to act like the iPhone CAUSES cancer...

    In your own comment you said that you're on your third device... There is NO way that you would've had to send back 2 iPhones to get one that "just works", as the iPhans would say. Sorry to burst your bubble dude.

    You are really making yourself seem immature, all I did was call your bluff on your wild battery life claim, and you act like I said you have 3 eyes!!!
    iPhone has better battery than any android phone, it's a fact that you're just going to have to accept.

    If battery life doesn't matter to you, great! But, it does matter to alot of people, and many people who do not know that might read what you posted as if it were fact. (Which it's not)

    I know atleast 5 people who are switching from VZW's Droid line to the vPhone SOLELY because of terrible battery life.

    I can understand why so many people like imobile products. They want seamless experiences that are easy and pretty.

    I don't want easy restricted use. I wanna work for what I want and be able to get it. Iphone is for the masses. Android is for people, like us, who don't wanna be told what to do at every turn with our devices. We make some sacrifices for that, but I personally wouldn't have it any other way.

    I'm not sure I get this thread....Why does an iphone:icon_evil: have to be the only alternative to an Android phone:motdroidvert: when there's more options out there (iphone is still the #3 smartphone in total current users in the US)? I was happy with my Blackberry before I saw my friend's G1 and saw what a linux-based os could do for mobile computing. Then I read Palm was switching to a Linux-based OS similar to the move that made Symbian so successful on Nokia. With iphone, Apple has neglected to offer the same benefits of an open-source OS, which has always ruled it out in my opinion as a valid alternative for my money. I want Free turn by turn, good voice commands, google search integration, rooted OS, custom Roms, hacked aps, and mobile software development at the speed of hackers -- all things you can get with the combination of Google and an open-source-backed community. Plus, whatever short-term advantages iphone has had over its non-anddroid competitors will be eventually overcome by Windows (wm 7) and Blackberry (os 6+), which has always been the case in the software world. But if the iphone starts offering the same things as Android, I would consider it, I guess?:) Until then, it's no longer included in the discussion.

    One word, apps. There are no other options. Its either android or iphone. Nobody else matters at the moment. You can't do on blackberry or windows phone what you can with iphone or android phone.

    This is completely true. But don't bust his >:icon_eek:[​IMG]:icon_eek:< cause he brought up the Black Berry. I used a Black Berry for 3 years while I was at At&t patiently waiting for a phone like the Droid X and because you couldn't pay me enough to own an iPhone. Black Berry is an amazing phone and will not go unseen in the future. It will step up in a big way.

    Okay, "apps" is definitely a point I'll entertain. But for how long is this a hurdle for Blackberry and MS? MS already has the developers so I would only give it a matter of time. My best guess is this battle will be less and less about iphone v Android, and much more about iphone v BB and W7p. To be honest, I never cried myself to sleep over apps when I had a Blackberry. I had tether-berry, ever-note, opera mini, hand-full of crappy games to kill down-time, weather bug, Pandora, FB, vlingo, LEDlight, gmaps, slider, and I can't remember. But I will say this, I wasn't so disappointed that I longed for an iphone. It could be the iphone just isn't for me (*but might be for others*) as an alternative to android, which is all I'm sayin'.

    Wow....really:
    iPhone Tips, Help and Troubleshooting - MacRumors Forums

    The mighty iPhone has problems too....just like any phone would.

    I wouldnt say Android phones, Droid phones have terrible battery life. Not all anyway. The latest have better life than older ones. With the X and Droid 2 being 2 of the ones with better battery life than most.

    And if battery life was really so important they wanna switch phones...stick an extended battery in an Android phone and keep it moving. As good as the battery life is on the iPhone, I dont think it can match a 2800 to 3500 mAh extended battery.

    http://thenextweb.com/apple/2010/06...e-4-lasts-38-hours-on-heavy-use-yes-38-hours/

    Read how one person...on their 2ND iPHONE still has problems...and ppl complaining about battery life still after that wild 38 hour with heavy use claim...remember his idea of heavy and mine might be totally different.
