but isn it running iOs 4 to its full potential? By that I mean, run everything the iPhone 4 can or is it missing some features?
The Android headsets that are still running 1.6 or 2.1 are just like the iPhone or iPhone 3G, older devices that can not support the new OS. As for 2.2, while 2.3 is the current, 2.2 runs just fine for most. Think of it as a 4.0 - 4.1 of iOS. Upgrade only if you want since its only a minor realse.
There are ways to get the latest 2.3, you just need to root (or what iPhone users call Jailbreak) the phone amd install a custom rom.

What grinds me the most about android is that when google releases an OS update, you have to await for your handset manufacturer to update "their version" of the update. It's like dealing with a update middle man.
When Apple releases an update.... Bam! Everyone gets it.... No waiting.

Yes .... because there are many different manufacturers on Android, just because an OS update releases doesn't mean every phone will get it at the same time. Apple makes all their phones, and basically they all get the update at the same time if they will ever get it.

one good thing about the android phones is since you are syncec with google, all you have tpo do is enter your information and bam! everything will be brought back. now you may have to redownload some apps and such, but on android there arn't that many apps that are worth using out there.
My main point is, its 2011, and Apple is still using a 3 foot cable to do the syncing. I own an iPad as well and its sometimes a pain having to hook everything up where i could just click a few buttons in itunes and it will be updated on my ipad right away from the cloud.

What i realize about apple that i didn't think about before, is that apple doesn't immediately try something because it is common. They wait until they can refine it, make it great. Like their camera, it took them a while to release it, but now that it's out, it's the best one out there. And this is coming from a droid user with an 8mp camera with dual led flash.

The only android phones that I've seen that hold a candle to the iPhone as far as camera quality are the xperia x10 and arc. The camera on the iPhone 4 is great for a camera phone. I'm probably going to pick up the bionic if I don't like the bionic it will go back and ill wait for the iPhone 5. For me updates and carriers putting useless crap in our phones makes me mad like the whole fascinate issue with mounting its sdcard with Mac. Because Verizon added crap that didn't fully work. If they continue I wont pick up the bionic ill just get the iPhone 5

Specs are great. i love to look at specs. I come from a linux background and have customized linux installs up the wazoo but the longer i deal with tech, the more i want a nice seamless, integrated experience. time and again, for me, it's less about specs (although i'm not saying get crappy hardware) and more about the software. and lately moreso it's more about the ease of using a nice integrated experience quickly rather than customizing at nauseum until i get what i want. that's why i like apple iOS devices. Apple MacOS X is a whole other animal in which I can say I hate to use.

I am dumping my Droid X for the iPhone. This is just my opinion as I have had a Droid X a Droid and an iPhone on A t &T. I loved the iPhone 4 but the carrier was a nightmare. Have had original droid and X on Verizon the service side has been great but the phones itself are sub par compared to iPhone. The smoothness of the os , the apps available to it, it's just a good user experience. The droids I don't know how many times I wanted to throw it out a window. Some text messages never went thru, or never got, the phone itself froze or took a long time to respond just horrible and I can't wait to dump my X for the iPhone but that is just my experience everyone else has their own experience and opinion that's why I come the this forum to see what they go thru as well
