Different sound signatures. Non are 100% accurate, this is where Eq comes in.

That's one of iOS's weaknesses; there are times in the product cycle that the Android phones will be quite a bit better since new Android phones are released much more often.

I'm happen to upgrade every two years as well, but I'm not going to fart around for a few months to see what Apple brings to the table when I could go out today and get a better Android phone.

I'm saying that Apple releases ONE phone every 12-18 months. That's your option pool if you want iOS, whatever Apple tells you what you are going to buy. There's a new Android phone on the market every few days, with hundreds, if not thousands of units to choose from, as well as multiple carriers, instead of AT&T or (until recently) Verizon.

Oh I'm sorry, I use Sennheisers. And I've had a fair share of loaned cans like the Grado RS-1. Sennheiser HD650, Beyerdynamic DT770 among others.


Anyways, as the others have said it's a valid comparison to pit the iPhone 4 against the Android competition simply because Apple won't bother updating their product line at a more steady pace. And when the iPhone 4 was released, the Samsung Galaxy S went out head-to-head. And guess what, the SGS meets and sometimes exceeds the iPhone 4 in the specsheet. The PowerVR SGX540 on the Galaxy S for example beats out the SGX535 on the iPhone 4.

That's all true. This model seems to work pretty well for Apple. I'm perfectly happy upgrading every year or two to get what I feel is a better experience on iOS, regardless of whether you have a newer processor by a couple of months.

iOS is perfectly optimized for the iPhone 4 hardware, which one can never say about android. Apps pretty much open as soon as you touch them. Of course more powerful hardware is always desired, but I certainly don't long for it with the iPhone 4. I've never tried to do anything on my phone that made me think the hardware was inadequate. As many people have stated earlier in this thread, they thought the system was snappier with an iPhone 4 when compared to even newer android handsets.

At one point, I swear this was a discussion about operating systems...

I cannot deny that Android still lacks the smoothness and fluidity of iOS, however we should take into account that the platform has yet to implement full hardware acceleration. Apple's iOS has had HW optimization from the get-go, but Google has stated that the upcoming 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will feature this capability. With that, we can expect current and even old-gen Android phones to gain speed and performance once they receive this major update.

Add to that, Nvidia's Kal-El quad-core processor is right around the corner. Better capabilities thanks to better hardware.

Indeed, and the iPhone5 should be as fast, if not faster, than the SGS2.

No it's not, when the iPhone 5 is out, yes, it will be silly, but it's what I can go and buy now for the same/similar price as an Android phone.

...And the same with the 4? That's what people are saying, you can't say "Just wait a few months" because some people would rather buy now.

No, they shouldn't, but his point was that you can't say "Don't compare the iPhone4, compare to the iPhone 5!" when I can buy the iPhone 4 and a Galaxy S 2 right now, but not an iPhone 5.

I can say the exact same thing about my HTC Dream, that came out in America in 2008.
