I don't understand how it's any different? Bootstrapper unlocks the bootloader so that custom ROMs can be installed.

As for Android, it's a great platform; the problem is it's so customizable that handset manufacturers and carriers just can't resist throwing a bunch of crap on top of it. This is where most people's problems come from, ironically enough. Of course, for most phones, fixing that is just a root away...
I read through so many of those auto correct nightmares, rofl. I get moments like that every single day.

I say iPhone for sure. I've had the first gen and after that decided to try an evo. That piece of crap went back and I went and got the iPhone 4. All the people I know spout off all the awesome specs of their android but none of their phones just freaking work the way it should, rooted or not. A 3 jiggahertz processor does me no good when your phone runs glitchy as **** and runs out of battery in less than a day. Truth.

Lol. That was funny, wish it was that easy. My phone would send messages that I sent days ago, to random people. Auto correct would be easier to explain since its instant..

You really don't understand. It doesn't unlock the bootloader. Motorola has block the ability to flash custom kernels. The roms you see now are just themed Froyo roms. They still retain their stock core from vzw/moto. Cyanogenmod is a complete custom rom with its own kernel. The new kernel gives you better abilities like better battery life and overclock/underclocking. Anyways ONLY Motorola can unlock the bootloader. No one has cracked and no one will be able to. The Droid X rom selection is rather pathetic compared to others, and now you know why.

Liberty 1.5 ROM for DroidX/2 offers overclocking/underclocking, and better battery life...

That isn't all new kernels offer.... all this 'bootstrapper' thing has done is give you a software workaround for your encrypted bootloader, nothing more, nothing less.

Im not a rom developer, and to be honest I don't how that works. I DO know this. Liberty does use a stock kernel. Overclock and battery life is just scratching the surface. Liberty improves battery life probably by de-bluring the phone and really bringing it back to vanilla android.

I didnt even read the thread or the post. Im putting in android as my decision. Purely by the question in the header.

android has tegra 2 . soon quad core
android has the hardware but not the gaming like the exclusive game titles that apple has. I also think the only worthwhile android phone I see worth getting, is going to be sony's psp phone. Allthough the company really needs to step the **** up and not piss so many people off with its garbage security like on ps network.

I own an iPhone 4 and to be honest, it could be better. I have a friend with a Galaxy S and to be honest, I kind of prefer it a little bit. It has a Gameboy Advance emulator with all the bells and whistles, it has expandable memory, the AMOLED screen looks amazing.

On the other hand, my iPhone is more responsive in general. It also has the App Store with a huge range of games and apps (more than can be said for the Android).

If you're looking for a phone to play phone-native games on, iPhone 4. The camera is also great and the LED flash is a godsend (the torch app is awesome in dark places - it's so damn bright!). If you want a phone with lots of memory, a nice screen and a lot of customizability, get an Android. I'd probably wait for the Galaxy S II, though.

This often leads to a bloated phone that is nigh on unusable, and only worth the money for the hackers. This is where an iphone is attractive, its fast, its clean and its a breeze to use (I mean at stock. Other android UI's, as well as stock are often inferior to the iOS in regards to usability).
2. the iOS takes almost full advantage of its hardware, unlike android (from what I've seen on stock phones), although the CPU is faster it doesn't mean it makes the phone 'faster'. That is why its buttery smooth, unlike the majority of android phones at stock.

You have to remember that these are the main reasons apple products are such a lure of modern consumers, they work, and they work well(unlike the majority of android phones). This may be different for the OP though since he may consider hacking it... I'd just thought I'd throw this perspective into the mix

Lol gets annoying when people are like "OMG cans ibseez ur iPhone??! What appsz doez u has!?!" seriously though both great phones, comes down to personal preference

Or wait for something amazing coming out like the sony psp phone

iOS - Runs pretty much exactly as it should with no effort. If you didn't want to change anything, there are no worries. I personally have my iPhone 4 jailbroken and with the apps I use from Cydia it is everything I need from my phone. I have a completely different texting interface, custom lock screens and a bunch of other tweaks to my liking. Not once have I wished for something that couldn't be done. I have in the past used emulators on my phone as well but I don't really care for those sorts of games on my phone.

Win Phone 7 - If you plan to have a phone that works well and doesn't need much tweaking, I would also recommend a Win Phone 7. The LG Quantum is a very solid phone with a great slide out keyboard. I love the interface as it is very refreshing from the 3D icons on a plate and endless scrolling menus that have become the norm. I never found the animations to be absurdly long and the way it interfaces information about contacts is great, linking their facebook, contact info, etc. all in one place.

Android - I have yet to see an android setup that is what I want stock. They are very easy to tweak (generally) and there are tons of options but you have to get it set up yourself.

As for hardware, I think there have been enough suggestions in the thread. The iPhone 4 and LG Quantum feel the most solid in my hand and so I prefer them.

Honestly, right now is a great time to buy a smartphone. People can whine, complain, and play the fanboy all day long but in the end, you can't really go wrong. You will find things you like and don't like about every single phone and every OS. For me, it comes down to this: Want it to work and have the 'popular apps' = iOS, want it for a phone and media device without any customizing = Win Phone 7, want to get inside, mess around, root it and flash it every 5 days = Android.


Good luck with your purchase!
