Droid X to iPhone
I am a longtime Verizon "Slave"(--once you are a customer, you're a customer for life) who drooled for an iPhone on Verizon. I first tried the Storm, then the Droid, then the Droid X before getting my iPhone last week.
I loved the iPod Touch I have and figured the phone would just be a combination of the two. WRONG. I loved Android for the tweaking ability and for the apps--If I didn't like it, I could always uninstall it. I hated the X for the lag and the battery pulls needed to keep it up--and the 5 handsets I had due to glass malfunctions (bubble between the glasses) but I attribute it to Motorola rather than Android.
I loved the X for what it could do and the wide latitude I had with replacing stock items like messaging (Handcent) and the Moto Blur home (Launcher Pro) and email (K9) and the awesome Vlingo App that blows the iPhone version out of the water. I also miss Cardio Trainer that was not only free but using the GPS allowed me to track my workouts and kept a history. I also personally liked Google Navigation which allowed me to walk, drive, or take public transportation routes.
Still the iPhone does seem to be every bit as good as my iPod is and I am sure once I learn the tweaks I am allowed by Apple to make, and the Apps that come close to my Android favorites I will like it a lot more.
Three things I feel Apple does awfully are: 1. Syncing between my Outlook and iPhone for contacts: Each contact has seperate entries for email, phone, mail address so my 377 contacts are now 1066 in the iPhone: 2. I want to set profiles for my phone such as bedtime, where only phone rings and no notifications; Meeting,where only vibration notifications are and Normal, where all notifications are 100% + vibration. and different notification ringtones for each email account, texts and facebook, etc; 3. Allow me to use a different stock app for email, messaging and navigation or allow more customizations for them.
One last pet peeve--Is it just me or does anyone else have a problem with old email continually coming back even after I delete it?
