I'm saying that if you load up a full web page on Android and on iPhone, more recent Android phones will load a tiny bit faster, but the rendering is off and the pages don't look how they were supposed to. Not to mention when you double-tap to zoom it reformats the text, which is really annoying if you continue to scroll down.

I own both a 16 GiG iphone 3Gs, and a Moto Droid..
Went to brand (V) and the Droid "because my AT&T service is horrid"
The Fruit fone is JB'n and the Droid is Rooted and OC'd...
And their is not ONE thing the iphone does better or faster...NOTHING...
My Droid Crushes it....And i LOVED my iphone. But hard facts are hard facts "as they apply to me"....
So now i wait till Nov when my AT&T contract is up...
Again just my 0.02 based on personal experiences..

My foray into smartphones follows this pedigree -- Palm (Treo), WM (Palm and HTC), iPhone (with a dash of Android for a while)... I've had a short attention span with smartphones, moving from one OS to another with the attention span of a brain-damaged gnat. My take? I've been with an iPhone now since it launched in 2007 and I've been happy as a clam since. I experimented with Android briefly, but found it somewhat clunky. I just love my iPhone and have no reason to change.

I have used droid phones and I have to say I'm not a fan. I just don't like the way they run. They aren't horrible phones and are WAY better than anything RIM will EVER put out but in no way, shape, or form are they better than the iPhone.

yep, that about sums it up. I got really sick of how horribly inconsistent the user experience is. For example, they have some el cheapo implementation of kinetic scrolling in the browser, but it's not there in your contacts. Also in the contacts screen there's this giant, hideous grey tab for scrolling down. Augh. And multitouch in the browser, for some reason not a single android phone can touch iPhone on this...
It's basically a cheap version of iPhone OS.

No apple dont have to
knows they could charge twice what they do and you Fruit Fone folks would STILL continue to buy his inferior product by the millions....LOL
Baa Baa...I used to be a sheeple too... All it took was an intervention from a good friend to get me off of Comrade Jobs apple flavored Kool Aid...
But this is exactly why we have multiple choices in the phone world.
And i still have many ifriends as well....

And i seriously don't have an issue with apple or the fruit fone...I just found what works best for me..
And my experiences with both and how i made my choice based on what worked best for me..
And i am glad we have the ability to make all the choices in phones we do..

Just switched back to the iPhone from a Sprint Android phone. You couldn't PAY me enough to go back. The HTC devices are all clunkers as far as I'm concerned. Android is still nowhere near as smooth or polished as the iPhone OS. The app catalog sucks too. Sprint can throw as many flashy looking phones at the market as they like - I'm sticking with the iPhone.

Look i already stated that i am glad their are many different flavors of phones...
Some like to have a phone that is fast, reliable with a better OS and UI...
So we buy droids, and being on the Verizon network actually allows me to do something i know most iphone owners wish they could do......
Actually use my smart PHONE as a PHONE!!! Which is something that my iphone is sketchy at on the best of days...
Trust me i am NOT trying to convert you...
Variety is indeed the spice of life....So please do continue to enjoy your iphones and the apps that comrade jobs so graciously allows you to put on your iphones..

First of all, the 3GS is a much smoother and more reliable experience than the droid, and the UI on the iPhone is unmatched. My sister has a Milestone (Droid in Canada), and it's really not up to par with my iPhone. Android's UI is hideous, lacks animations, and is completely inconsistent. You can put on the green-coloured glasses all you want, but please don't distort the truth. The Droid is a fine phone and I have nothing against it, but what you're saying is sooo not true.
Second, the iPhone makes calls just fine, some people have zero issues with AT&T, the complainers will always seem more common because when you're having a great experience with your iPhone you don't rant about it. Not to mention there are other people living in other countries, too. It's not only Americans that use iPhones, and we Canadians have 5 great carriers to choose from, all of which have great coverage.
If you are all about to each their own and what-not like you claim to be, try not to insult the iPhone so much because if that's all you're going to do I don't see how you can continue to claim to be so neutral about it.

It's the user experience, stupid!
Puleese! I wouldn't give another phone consideration. The iPhone is the BEST and will continue to be the BEST because of the whole user experience. The hardware, the iPhone OS, the apps, the music, the movies, podcasts, mobile Safari and the Web experience, etc. All combine to create a balanced, pleasing and satisfying user experience that's unmatched by any other device.
Someone will always come out with better hardware and improved features, but that's it! One-upping the iPhone is not gonna cut it. I personally don't need the hassles and shortcomings of other devices, and I don't need to waste time trying one to prove myself right. I've done enough device experiments to know a good one when I see it. The iPhone is it. PERIOD! 'Nuff said. I'll continue to enjoy my iPhone and the smile it puts on my face.

Ok, I really don't have a dog in the fight but I've certainly enjoyed reading all the comments . . . and, hey, I gotta get my post-count up somehow.
I love, love, love my iPhone but I'm being tempted by the fruit of another . . . I really like trying new things so all those Droid phones are enticing.
I'm on AT&T only because I get a nice Premier discount due to where I work in Fort Worth, Texas. Fortunately the coverage is pretty good here so I'm happy with them. So I'll need a Droid phone that's optimized (or whatever it is) for AT&T 3G. My understanding is that the Nexus One for AT&T is the only one available. But the used ones on CL are pretty steap, everyone wants near the retail price.
