    That's an interesting story indeed.

    To be fair there are some fine examples of hardware engineering in the Android market. I also let my daughter use my iPhone 3gs occasionally and I don't worry too much about her breaking it. The value in the iOS device is in the ease of adoptability. I've seen both very young children and very old luddite-type users succeed with iOS. I don't think many people will argue that you can accomplish a heck of alot with an Android phone if you have the wherewithal. - Cheers

    I would have to disagree. I mean take the iPhone 4 for example. The phone had antenna issues, proximity sensor issues, bluetooth issues, etc. If you dropped it it could shatter the front and/or back of the phone. The damn thing was practically a lemon. If any other hardware vendor had released a phone with that many problems it would have put them out of business. But Apple gets a pass.

    Some of the older generation iPhones got so hot they were burning people's faces and the white phones were turning pink from the heat. The phones up to the 3GS all suffered from severe call quality issues that made them some of the worst performing phones on the market.

    The list goes on and on. Apple has just as many hardware problems as any other phone manufacturer. I understand Apple is going to have their fanboys. People spend an excess amount of money on products and they feel the need to justify it to themselves subconsciously, but let's be real here. How many Android/Windows/Blackberry/candybar phones can literally shatter to pieces when they fall out of your pocket when sitting in a chair? And how many Android phones have had the series of hardware related problems the iPhone 4 had at launch? Can you even name one? Granted some of the problems were mitigated with firmware, but other ones were clear hardware design flaws that no other smartphone manufacturer has ever been so incompetent to implement.

    I'm considering Android (moto defy) to replace my Nokia 1650.

    On my second Android phone. Had the first Droid and now the Rezound. The only beef I have with android is they stop updating the OS after about a year to older phones. Also I wish manufacters would take more times to produce a superior phone- maybe 2 phones/year top with great hardware instead up putting out 3+ phones a year that are crap (I'm talking to you, Motorola). I've been very happy with my Rezound so far but I hate to think a year down the road when I'll be in the old thus no longer getting ICS (or whatever) updates. Either way I'm satisfied with Android and WILL NEVER go to the dark side . Love the 720p, 4G and HDMI out that Apple has yet to offer in phone (or on Verizon).

    I use an iPhone 4 personally and some new Samsung Galaxy or something with Android for work. I don't like the way Android does some things I do on a regular basis, and the phone feels cheap compared to the iPhone.

    I'm going to go with iOS here for a couple of reasons, based exclusively on personal experience.

    1> Apple's hardware and support is vastly superior to most other vendors like HTC, Samsung, etc. I had a Samsung Galaxy android tablet die on my wife recently. My iPad keeps on chuggin'.
    2> Apple's interface is somewhat cleaner, and essentially better thought-out. It is missing some of the functionality that some people may like in Android, but the end-result there seems to simply be a less cluttered feel.

    The one area where Android beats iOS hands-down, though, is app availability. There's just a lot more good stuff, and a lot more free stuff, available for Android.

    Ask for Server IP & Nameservers IP to check if your reseller provider truly provides 100% white-label.

    Though I dont care for apple computers or their computer operating system I am in love with the iphone. Only phone that offers so many different APPS. I have had the phone for 6 years, thats 3 generations of phones (2 year contract) and they have always lasted me the 2 years until I upgrade. Love the iPhone!!

    Android

    I choose Android, mainly because Apple confine so much to Apple only devices, you play by their rules or you don't play at all is my feeling.

    What's the meaning behind your paradoxical statement?

    I currently have BB through my work, i dont really like it. I do how ever can speak about how my Iphones where and my one Android phone worked. Iphones seem to get better each version, weather or not there are large improvements between releases or not. The quality is alos there apple is awesome. I did how ever like how fast my android phone was, knocked my iphone 3gs out of the waters. I could have to say the newest Iphone is probably one of the better ones on the market. Depending on your needs of course changes what kind of functionality you need out of the phone. Don't buy one because its "in" or looks "cool" go for what will preform best under the tasks you use it for!

    I would go for Samsung Galaxy 2, its cheaper than iPhone but approximately parallel. Hundreds of free applications, even faster than iPhone 4, beautiful look etc.

    I made my decision to go with Android.

    I got a got sweet deal going on with Verizon now too. I got two Motorola Razr 16BG phones for $199 (buy one on contract and get the 2nd free) + double that data plan.

    Verizon was kind enough to upgrade me a full 14 months before I was eligible too. I asked the guy to talk to his supervisor and explain I am a long time customer wanting to add two data plans - and my old phones were $100 "dumb" phones so it's not like they didn't give me an I4S and I wanted out of the contract. He put me on hold and came back with an approval. Can't wait until Monday. Sweet! Welcome to 2012.

    I see some people commenting on android based phones as if they are all the same. Granted, there are a few educated users in this thread that realize Android is an operating system and firmware/kernel/radio set with proprietary drivers, and that the hardware is separately designed by individual OEM's.

    There are a fair share of hardware OEM's who produce sub par quality handsets (although even low end sets from major OEM's seem to be of decent quality these days), but there are also those that truly stand out. I have the pleasure of owning the Sprint Galaxy S2 phone "Epic 4G Touch" - which happens to have one of the most powerful cpu/gpu combos of any phone (best of the galaxy s2's) and exceptional battery, weight, build quality, looks. Basically it has the whole package. Everything about it is superior to the iPhone, except maybe the outer materials - although that is subjective. I actually prefer the lighter hard plastics as they are incredibly light and durable. Some might like glass and metal. It's all opinion.

    I also have had access to every single model iPhone from the beginning up to the latest 4S, as my wife is in love with them. I have to say that while most of them appear to be of high build quality, we have had many many problems with shoddy components. Every single model I've bought for her has had major defects: speakers going completely dead, mic going dead, screen dying, antenna issues, battery issues, and most recently her iPhone 4's camera hardware failed out of the blue (how, I do not know), so I upgraded her to the 4S. She has now been having software problems. It never ends. I won't even get into the glaring OS flaws, and the complete lock down of the interface.

    She is now wanting to change to a Galaxy S2 or a Galaxy Nexus, as she has experienced the hardware and played with both stock gingerbread, custom gingerbread ROMs, ICS leaks, new ICS ROMs. Every time she plays with my phone she goes back to her tiny iPhone and is left wanting.

    We've decided to sell off her iPhone 4S and get her a Galaxy Nexus. She loves the stock ICS interface and the superior customization. I never thought I would see the day that she would no longer have an Apple iPhone, but that day has come and it is sweet.

    So it's not really a question of "Android vs. iPhone". You can compare Android to iOS, or you can compare specific phones like the Samsung Galaxy S2 line vs. the iPhone 4S. From my personal comparisons there is no question that Android OS is superior, and that the high end Samsung handsets are by far superior. There's no question about it.

    I'm loving this Razr! Not too hard and help is only a forum away. I can't wait until it gets the ICS update.

    Blackberry

    I can't see Blackberry option in the poll. If there is blackberry in the list then i will be voted for it. But, my second choice i.e. Android (i have voted on it).

    I prefer iOS. Android isn't bad either, but the support cycle for android devices is too short, for example Samsung dropping updates after 1 year.

    I wouldn't be confident to buy an Android device these days knowing that manufacturers load it with bloatware and update so slow.

    I use both a lot, but from a developer point of view I prefer iOS. It helps a lot when you know your apps work without any issues anywhere.
