Then don't say its better.

What you were saying was the iPhone is definitively better, and that regardless of personal preference its simply the better phone. If you prefer one to the other say "I like the iPhone better", not "the iPhone is better". Say "I like the features of iOS", not "iOS has better features than Android".

You could say, "The iPhone is better than a Blackberry" and that would be perfectly fine, or "The iPhone is better than a Nokia Smartphone", but if you want to say "The iPhone is better than Android", then you'll need some objective evidence.

if you must stay on ATT, and the unlim interweb, wont transfer to any other phones. I guess go with iFail4. IF you can keep unlim interweb with other phone I say Captivate or Wp7 as can run android also.

No, I don't need any objective evidence. Fact is whether or not the iPhone is better is subjective and based on a personal preference.

IMO iPhone is better than Android. That is my personal view. What you think is irrelevant.

You continue going back and forth with me, and I understand, you have a need to defend your inferior product you wasted your money on.


I'm kidding! XD

I prefer Android. I don't find the iphone to be an inferior product per se, but I would rather be able to tinker more with my phone, and as such, android is a better platform for me.

If you really don't care about diving into the features of your phone, rooting, and fully customizing nearly every aspect of it, then I guess that the iphone is just dandy for you. If you want the phone that honestly and truly belongs to you, go with (a non-Motorola) Android headset.

Honestly if you liked the iPhone 3g a lot it makes sense to get an iPhone 4. It will be a very smooth transition for you. Anyway I would look into the Windows Phone 7 phones because it looks like it could really take off and my first recommendation would be Android but I heart AT&T has crippled their Android phones.

Anyway to summerize:
iPhone 4
Windows Phone 7 phones
Android phones (what I prefer but it's all I know)

I expect some android love from ATT after the iphone hits verizon. They don't want to cut into their iPhone profits so they have hamstrung its biggest competition, as well as not pursuing higher-end motorola or HTC devices, who are both the heavy hitters in the smartphone arena, and have been for years.
