How Many Of You Guys Are Ditching An Android For The Beautiful iP4?
I have a Droid X and Ive come under so much criticism on Droid-life when I said "My Droid is going in a recycle bin the minute I get my iP4 on the 10th" and many people came back at me saying that hardly anyone would switch to the iPhone because Android is "clearly superior".
So I want to see if this assumption will hold up and how many of you guys are coming from a Droid thats going to be chucked across the room on Feb 10th.

I have been on Android for over a year and I do like it a lot. I have the Evo and it is a great phone. I am possibly going to get an Iphone, not because I need to switch, but because I am probably changing carriers. I have been with Sprint for 10 years and I think it may be time for a change. If I do I would go with the Iphone. Mostly because everything else I own is Apple. The only non apple gadget I don't own is the phone. I think Android and Apple have strong and weak points. I think one of the biggest things I am concerned about with the Iphone is going back to the small screen. A 4 inch screen seems to be the sweet spot IMO. I like both platforms so we shall see.

I have absolutely nothing against my Droid X. It was good to me while it kept me occupied waiting ultimately for the release of the iPhone. Since 2007 I had wanted one. I tried all of Verizons "iPhone killers" the Storms 1 and 2, and every Blackberry in between. I tried all of the Droids, I tried the Palm Pre, nothing ever truly removed that want for the iPhone. Using my iPod Touch, knowing the ios pretty well, seeing it work smoothly, and now being able to condense my mobile needs to 1 device, I am really excited about this release, more than I have on other devices. The only device release that would excite me more would be a 64 gb iPhone.
My Droid X isn't so much laggy as it is just not as smooth as ios. I tend to have to correct more errors typing on my Droid than I do on my Touch.
So count me in on another switched.
Ps I will be selling my Droid X and accessories on either Craigslist or EBay as well as selling my iPod Touch to fund the reimbursement for as close to the retail I'm paying for the iPhone as I can.

Already sold both mine and my wife's EVOs. Got 350 a piece. Using the money for Sprint ETFs and towards VZW iPhone. I actually liked the EVO and didn't have issues with Sprint's service but the only reason I left VZW a couple years ago in the first place was for the iPhone. And then I left AT&T because I started having coverage issues but I couldn't see myself going back to VZW to pay much more money than Sprint for a comparable device and service. But now the iPhone which is the best phone I've ever had is now on what I consider to be the best network, it's a no brainer.

I am switching from a droid for the iphone 4. I have been waiting for an iphone on verizon for years and now that they finally got it I cant wait to jump ship. Too much fragmentation with android and updates for my liking apple send their updates out to everyone to download at the same time. now if the next iphone had a 4 inch screen that would be amazing

Im throwing my Droid Inc out the window when i get the iPhone. I came from AT&T with the iPhone 3GS to the OG droid because of there being no service with AT&T after I moved. I have been "dealing" with android since. In my opinion (just my opinion, dont get worked up) iOS is a lot smoother, and more polished than android. I have used both for a extended amount of time and I just plain love iOS, and I am pulling my hair out waiting on 2:00 am central time!

For me I personally hated Apple going through high school because all their products just didn't appeal to me and I had verizon. Now that I'm in college and understand business a little bit better, Apple appears to be a great company who makes great products. That and my droid is insanely slow. My last note and tipping point for switching to iOS is that after all Motorola put into Verizon with the droid the go and release the Atrix on AT & T. To me that was sort of a betrayal so I guess I'll pull the same number, bye Android.

I sold my Droid Pro so that I could get the iPhone. While I am making the switch, I'll be keeping an eye on Android to follow its progress. It's a good OS but needs some polishing and tweaking. I can't say for sure that I'll be Apple for life, but I will be for now.
