First thing first, iPhones users argument that Apple has bigger app store is by far the worst argument possible. Just because Apple has 500 fart apps, but Android only 100 is not a really good reason why Apple apps are more and better.
Why I picked HTC Desire over iPhone 4.
1. Flexibility and freedom.
- I can root my phone and gain super user rights which allow me to do pretty much everything I want. Including Titanium Backup, Rom change, hardware modification and on and on.
- Being able to choose between multiple home screens.
- I have iPod Touch 3rd. Plenty of apps, but the good once nearly always cost and I don't want to think about how much I've spent buying apps, until I got my Desire.
- Most of the apps are free, but in some cases you'll be stuck with ad's unless you buy the full version, while in some cases you get the complete apps for free but you can donate to the maker if you like the app.
- Plus the Apps from Google are great!
3. Multiply chose of phones
- Its not only one phone that runs Android, they are plenty. From the simple to the powerful. Dual core phones are out and the smartphones are more powerful than ever.
4. Your phone is exactly how you want it.
- You can modify almost anything (including the home screen like I mentioned earlier) - the choses are endless.
- How many carriers does iPhone have and how many does Android phones have (worldwide)?
6. Swap-able SD cards
- You can pick the size and speed.
- No need to explain that much more.
All in all I believe Android phones are for advanced users, iPhone is for everyone from the age of 11 to 90. The phone is so simple that nearly everyone can use them.
I'm working at a tiny office, most of the guys are up to date about pretty much everything tech related, including phones. Three of them have iPhone 4, seven of them (including me) are Android users. We have be arguing, fighting, there has been sweat and there has been blood (not really) - for a week we were sure that had started the WW3. Only thing the iPhoner's have that I envy is they're camera. I find the iPhone 4 camera and video being so much better and smoother than my Desire, but hopefully my Galaxy S II will fix that "issue".
