I vote for Android. I like the freedom.

To me its crazy what can be done with a android platform. The Rom Dev community at RootzWiki, cyanogenmod, XDA, alone is enough for me to never touch a iPhone.
Sure if you are the type that doesn't want to mess with phone the iPhone may temporarily be the best. For me its night and day, Android FTW!

Are you serious? Mr. Gowri's section of the review was the only part that you could argue was even slightly biased.

I got it on launch day and haven't found a single thing to complain about yet, though I can certainly see where others could have a different preference. It's not a perfect phone, but it is perfect for what I want and so far it's been fast and bug-free.

Manufacturers that BLOAT the UI they put over Android *cough* HTC *cough*, I could see how it could get laggy, but Touchwiz is pretty snappy once you clean the crap they load off the home screens.

Me, I personally run AOKP, and my phone is incredibly fast (although, some of it's insane snapiness could be attributed to the fact that it runs at 2GHz constantly tongue.gif), and I would never give it.

Plus, I absolutely LOVE the HD Super AMOLED screen.

I vote for android too, but Google (android) is not equal to freedom.

I never bought an iPhone, people are just stupid that continue to buy this expensive mobile phone.

Same crap that Apple makes for every Iphone is the same design. Nuff said. And the fact that the Samsung Galaxy s3 is better then what Apple could ever make; makes Apple look 10000x as bad. teaching.gif

blinksmiley.gif I guess you haven't even bothered to read what's inside the new phone or seen the comparisons?

maps =/= just works

camera =/= just works
anodizing =/= just works

Map works for most. Wifi was a bug on Verizon's part. Camera just works in 99% of cases and has the same issues as many other cameras. Anodizing was a fail though IMO, Apple could've done better.

But yea, suffice it to say that this iPhone launch did not go off without a hitch.

Maps varies by region. WiFi is fine. Camera is fine. Eh the scratching sucks but it's more durable.
