I had a Droid X for about a year, went through 4 of them. Then they swapped me to a Droid X2 which I went through 3 of them. I had a friend that wanted to go from an iPhone back to a droid so we traded straight across for his 16gb iPhone 4. He has since sold the Droid X2 and got another iPhone lol. I did love the droid, when it worked...the thing w/ the iPhone I LOVE is that it is SO stable. No freezing up, no rebooting, always fast and works when I need it to. I won't go back to Android.
I love this thing. I don't think I'd go back to android either. The phones go obsolete so quickly. One iPhone comes out and stays stable. I hope the iphone5 has a bigger screen. The screen size doesn't bother me at all. Battery life is great.

I switched from a Droid DX2 to an iPhone 4s. I'm glad I did so. The only drawbacks are:
- Nav is not as good
-Many apps do not upgrade in the background (Pulse, weather apps etc)
Although the 4s screen is smaller, it is much less pixelated, so it is actually easier to read
iOS is much more stable than Android
iOS actually gets updates. With Android, you can only hope your phone does not get abandoned my the carrier/mnfg

Android is fast. No doubt there. Since I've been an android user there have been os updates pushed out that we're "supposed" to be better than the previous. No matter which flavor it was... It always had bugs and problems here an there. Google never seemed to perfect an operating to be as stable and reliable than iOS. Since I've made the transition I've been extremely happy. All apps work. No freezing. I dont have to root or jailbreak my device to "make" it perform for me. IOS is just solid and stable. Im gonna say that I do miss some of the customization. iOS has a lot of white and blue. Which isn't a problem but I'm a black it out type guy. Resolution and response is so fast... It really doesn't bother me. Id rather have a good reliable device over one that "looks" good.

I made the jump from android to ios. Not looking back either. There's too much that I like. Plus I've got an ipad2 so apps transfer to both platforms. Battery life is excellent too. Unplugged at 7am and its almost 8pm right now and I'm at 65%. That's a massive selling point for me.

I traded my Thundebolt for my current iPhone 4. It's definitely a huge change as far as the Apple ecosystem and so far I've liked it. Each platform has their own strong points that I miss fro Android, but once there's a untethered jailbreak it will make this phone a lot better.

I went from Droid Bionic to iP4 last week. My bionic, while fast with a warehouse of memory and lots of apps and stuff, the phone would drop data link and I would have to pull battery more than I did with blackberry. Was horrible. Several hard resets, help tickets, etc, and I jumped to iphone after hearing people rave... I will never go without iphone again. Stable, fast (okay not the 4G kind of fast but between apps, etc its awesome) smaller, better interface, etc. LOve it.

So I swapped my iPhone 4 32gb for a Bionic last Friday. I bought a used iPhone 4 32gb on eBay on Sunday! Worst decision I ever made was swapping out my iPhone, although it was a learning experience.
I used Android for over a year before going to iOS and I loved it, but always felt like I missed Android. Now that I've gone back to Android for a few days, I can honestly say I don't miss a dam thing about Android. I can't wait to get my iPhone again. It's just so stable and reliable. The screen is beautiful. It's the perfect device for me, and the fact that everything is unified really helps with my OCD.
I don't care if I can add widgets to Android, especially when my phone is dead by the time I get off work. And yes 4G is AWESOME for downloading and surfing the internet, but it sucks the ever loving hell out of the battery and is pretty much useless for anything else. Not like I get my emails before they've actually been sent or anything.
I can tell you right now, until an Android phone poops out golden eggs for me, I'm sticking to iPhones.
4g is a battery sucker. It's ok but 3G is perfectly fine for me. I used to be an android faithful but get increasingly sick of phones being obsolete within matter of a month. I'm right there with you Wildo. I never really use widgets anyways for the fact that drained your battery even more. I can go on a single charge on my iPhone for over a day and still have juice for the next. The screen size doesn't bother me. The resolution is so sharp. Reliability is nice too.

I can have all of the stuff I have on Android (for the most part) in a reliable phone that lasts over a day. It's a no brainer for me anymore. And don't even get me started going from the beautiful screen of an iPhone to the pixelated screen of a Bionic.
I was even looking at Android tablets, but I'm almost turned off of those now. Thinking I'm going to test out the Fire and if it doesn't work for me, I'm going iPad.
