Right now I'm looking at the iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S II, and HTC Titan. It seems like WP7 has most of the same apps or at least alternatives to apps I have on my iPhone, and Android has pretty much the same apps as my iPhone. Basically, I want to be able to sync up multiple mail accounts, browse forums, have turn-by-turn navigation, and be able to access dropbox. Those are main requirements. I've researched into them and it seems I can do them all with WP7, but I just want to get some input from WP7 users. Thanks.

I came from an iPhone 3G and there is absolutely nothing I miss. Except for Cube Runner.

I believe they're the same thing. IIRC.

Sweet, I have the LG quantum. The screen is great, the physical keyboard is amazing, and the core software is fantastic.

However, the app selection, and even the market itself, is a mess. I hope developers jump over to this platform eventually, because there is lots of potential.

Give it a couple weeks, after Mango updates, a ton of apps are missing because they haven't been updated for Mango, but they're slowly coming back.

I used to own the iPhone 4G until I bought the Samsung Focus, before mango update the phone was good, kinda sluggish but after the update it feels like a brand new phone. I do miss some apps from the iPhone but its not enough to make me dislike WP7. If you go for the Samsung Focus S it will be faster then mine and also have a front facing camera just like the 4G.

I went to the AT&T store during my lunch break and played with some phones. I really want to like WP7, but for some reason I just couldn't. It felt kinda... cluttered and confusing, which is weird since the UI is supposed to be clean and simple. Plus the marketplace kinda sucks IMO. The HTC Titan was nice, but I just felt it was too big. The Focus S was pretty nice too, but I just don't think WP7 is for me yet. The Galaxy S II was my favorite phone I played with. I just want something besides iOS, and I think for now I'm gonna go Android. Maybe by my next upgrade WP7 will be more to my liking.

I'm happy with my focus, its plenty fast for me and I don't feel the need for a front facing camera. I'm just happy that the Mango update fixed MicroSD card support for me.

After seeing a review like this, I would consider the Titan.
