Well, if an IM program is the defining software you're after, and BB Messenger fits your needs, then I guess you're right. Trouble is, social media is a LOT more than IMing. It is essentially web content first and foremost, and as you indicate they are crazy slow when it comes to web browsing.

Now granted, the last BB I used was two years old. I have not even seen their newest one, but I know the reviews for the Storm and Storm 2 weren't all that great...so I have no reason to think I'm too far off base here.

Blackberry's are also way better for corporations because you can setup tons of them at once over a very short period of time.

Sure, this is why BB's are best for corporations. They are not the best for the corporate users, however, they are best for the corporate IT staff. Now that's no small matter if you have to manage hundreds of devices, believe me I know. Tools exist for provisioning iPhones now, but RIM is still the king in that regard.
Quote:
Also blackberry's receive their emails as soon as they reach your inbox where iphone only checks for them once every couple of minutes (15 is the minimum amount of time between checks if I'm not mistaken) and android only recieves the email immediately if it is from gmail.

Incorrect. I receive my corporate e-mail on my iPhone before it even hits my desktop inbox! Slow message propagation was a significant problem when I was piloting Good for Enterprise on the iPhone; but with iPhone 4's security features, there is no reason to use Good anymore. So I'm using standard ActiveSynch, and e-mails get to me immediately, just like with a BlackBerry.

I have a Motorola Droid 1 as my family is on Verizon. Shortly after getting my Droid I started working at AT&T so to better know about the product I got myself an iPhone 4, so at the time I have 2 phones. I have my droid rooted and I've played with all the ROMS, kernals, overclocking and everything to do under the rooted scene, heres my take. Android is not currently at the level iOS is, they do some things better than iOS, but iOS has the cleaner, smoother package at the moment. Nothing on Android so far can beat zooming on an iPhone, its too smooth at this time, the whole OS is very smooth and a big part is they develop the OS specifically for one set of hardware. The closest Android is to iPhone right now is the Nexus S, but it's not quite there in my opinion, I very much look forward to the next Nexus phone as it should be very very good. But for now I'm tired of seeing iPhone bashed so heavily on this forum, I don't agree with alot of things Apple does, but you can't deny the iPhone is a good product, I just think there is alot of people who "have" to hate Apple because they're mainstream.

iOs was cool, but i like the way android works so... yeah... it was a good switch.

Your are harsh here, it's not true that you can't make a phone call with iPhone on AT&T.

if you knew what you were talking about then you wouldn't make statement s like this


i can go for 3 days on 1 charge on my evo with a new kernel on mine....

This.

I have my evo, I love it. Sadly recently battery life has become horrible, I can kill it in 2 hours with light texting. I did the conditioning thing after reading about it on the android forums before I picked up my phone. Oh well its a beastly phone, I'd get a "dumb phone" if I wanted excellent battery life.

I did pick of one of these tho. They are great when I am somewhere and need some extra power. I just keep it in my laptop bag or backpack.

I even have a 750mAH pack thats even smaller (1x3in and about 1/4" thick). If I power off my phone I get like a 45% charge which is nice since its small enough to keep in my pocket.

Oh and currently I did this battery test with Fresh 3.3 and no kernel. With a good kernel battery life was alot better.

Wait... Did no one read the source?? How could you read that without making fun of its author?? The piece is riddled with misspellings and conclusions without any supporting evidence! It's a terrible excuse for news! I'll go produce a poorly written blog and post it as a news source here...

With that said, I love my iPhone 4. From my dealings with Android, I feel that it is not nearly as cohesive as iOS.

Not everyone will flash a new kernel but it really brought things over the top for me.

Bottom line is I know from all the thread in the beginning that people with bad battery life didn't perform a proper break in.. I know this because at my job three people purchased EVOs after I had gotten mine. Two close members of my family and four very close friends bought them as well. I made sure everyone broke them in properly and they all have great battery life. biggrin.gif

Are you talking great as in 2 and a half days of heavy usage like I got with my iphone 4 or great as in 12-15 hours of moderate usage like I sometimes get with my EVO? That is before I got the 3500mah battery that makes it the perfect phone because I can use it all day and not have to charge it.
