As a person who has a droid, even I would say get the iPhone. You should seriously get it since you loved your first gen iPhone. It would be wiser to wait and get the iPhone 5 though at this point if you can.iPad 3 - Black, 32 gb, wi-fi only
iPhone 5 - White, 32 gb

I would say stick with Android, it offers so much more, but relying on anyone else's opinion on what YOU should use is pretty silly. Go to Androidcentral and ask the same question and you will get 99% of the responses telling you to stick with Android, and why you should do it. We all have our own likes and dislikes, and most of my likes I can't satisfy on an iOS phone. My advice, try a newer high end Android and a iPhone, both for a few weeks utilizing the return policy. Whichever one you like best, go with t.

Your question is kind of like going to fast food restaurant and going "I've had a hamburger before, but i was thinking about eating something different, do you have any suggestions?""Speed has never killed anyone; suddenly becoming stationary...that's what gets you." - Jeremy Clarkson

This isn't really a dig at Android most people I know who have an Android phone don't know they have one, they just though they were getting 'something a bit like the iPhone, but free' .it's a dig at the tendentious argumentation in the video.iPhone is a cult as much as it is a product. Then along come the Android phones, giving you a lot of reasons to wonder.

I have an i4 and an HTC Inspire. The HTC is powerful, fun and fast. That being said, the iPhone 4 is the smoothest device offered today, everything works and works extremely well. And jailbreaking opens up and unleashes IMO what the i4 was meant to be. A good android phone is nice, but the i4 is still king, no question.i4S Jailbroken

It all depends on what your after. I have an ip4, ipad2, galaxy tab and a droid incredible. I love to mod and hack, so I have the droid for that. I also like games and thats why I have the iphone4 and ipad2. The iphone/ipad is very smooth and pretty to look at with the retina display(iphone), but there are no custom ROMs or as many free apps out there for ios. Android has homescreen widgets and they are VERY helpful and I really wish ios would do the same and not that drop down widget thing in ios5 though tat is cool too. I went back and forth for a long time between iphone(s) and droids but I finally had to just get both to suite my needs... ok, wants...

I have already tried 3 of AT&T's top Android devices, and while they were definitely nice, I still went back to my iPhone 4 each and every time. True, a jailbreak is required to get the most features out of the iPhone 4, but it is definitely worth it, IMHO.

Also, I do agree that most of the free apps for android are rubbish. The over all quality of iphone apps cant be matched by any other phones os but thats not to say that android doesnt offer great apps too.

Coming from Android to iPhone has been an adjustment for me. Android, in retrospect, seemed more flexible and customizable out of the box. IPhone and my iPad have been a learning-curve experience. At first, slow and frustrating, knowing how to do something in Android but not in iPhone.
However, there are advantages to both, I'm discovering. The sophistication of the Apple apps vs the Android apps (where I had the same app on each os) is dramatic in favor of iPhone. More features, more sophistication in UI experience. Quality is consistent with the iPhone and iPad.
I would recommend, as others have said above, try each and see what works for you. HOWEVER, there are nearly 200 devices running Android now, maybe more. Not all the newest and greatest are on the most current operating system, which for an Android phone is 3.0 Gingerbread. So, be careful in your choices.Always learning ...
