i didnt buy an iphone when it first came out because it was hella expensive, didn't have gps, didn't have 3g, didn't have mms; to be honest i could talk for days about the original iphones problems.

then they came out with the 3G model and I wanted to get one but wasn't eligible for an upgrade yet

now i got one and i love it no homo.

how many heads got iphones?

Maybe add a poll?

For example,
what operating system do you prefer/use?
-OSX Apple/iPhone
-Windows Mobile
-Symbian
-Android
-Proprietary (Java)

I recently upgraded to the 3GS.  I bought the OG iPhone on the day it was released in 2007.  I used it until I upgraded.  My wife is now using the OG iPhone.

I loved the OG and love the 3GS.  The OG didn't have problems... it simply had some limitations and lacked features other phones had.  My iPhone has always worked great.

c'mon son. the OG iPhone has no 3g, no gps, you have to use an adapter to use your own headphones, no a2dp bluetooth (there is a hack now that allows this), and some other shit i can't even remember right now.

the only two things i like about it is the phone housing (they should of kept it like that) and it has the ability to downgrade your baseband/software to whatever you want. you can downgrade to the earliest firmware and use iliberty and change the IMEI to whatever you want. if i were to sell drugs, i'd use an OG iPhone with prepay sim cards and change the IMEI every other day

ComScore:
American Consumers Considering Android Almost as Often as iPhone

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/androidguyscom/~3/OxqHkLYT3c4/


American consumers are slowly starting to wake up to Android as a smart phone platform to consider.
A new ComScore survey reveals some very interesting results concerning our favorite mobile operating system.
The first figure we learn is that 17% of US consumers planning to buy a smartphone in the next three months are considering Android handsets.
Compared to iPhones 20%, we’ll take that figure.
Habits and usage between the two platforms are nearly mirror images of each other. Here’s a look at how consumers are using their phones.

(iPhone – Android)
Mobile Media: 94% vs. 92% (80% for average smartphone user)
E-mail: 87% vs. 63% (70%)
News/Info Browser: 83% vs. 82% (65%)
Any App: 83% vs. 82% (59%)
Social Networking: 58% vs. 52% (43%)
Instant Messenger: 43% vs. 46% (37%)

Another stat that we’re pretty happy to learn of is that 22% of mobile users had heard of Android back in August 2009.
Three months and a million Droid commercials later, that number has risen to 37% awareness!
That’s almost 2 out of every 5 mobile users cognizant of Android.
Already.
What is your reaction to the findings?
Are the numbers more or less what you expected?
Where do you think Android will be in another quarter?
Next year?

I don't like the current phones that use Android. Android looks cartoonish and hasn't had the time to have as many apps as the iphone. I like the potential Android has but in it's current state I simply don't want it.

Android >>> iphone

unsuccessful troll is unsuccessful

How am I trolling ?  Android is the future.

Pro and cons on Android VS os X (iPhone) ?


1: BrowsingLet me first say I do like the Safari browser on the iPhone. Itís fast, itís reliable, itís stable. But flexible? Flash? Monopolistic? Yes Safari is the only browser for the iPhone, and that browser still does not do Flash. However, the Android browser is one of the best browsers on the mobile market. On my HTC Hero, I have Opera Mini, Dolphin, and the default Browser. I havenít used Opera Mini since I used it a couple of times upon installation. Dolphin is outstanding, with its use of Tabs and Gestures. But the default Android browser just canít be beat. It usually loads pages faster than Safari, has Flash support, and simply does everything a browser should do.

2: DesktopInstead of just having icons littering your phoneís desktop (like the iPhone), the Android phone adds widgets to the desktop. These widgets tend to have an actual purpose. For example:

The Twitter Widget allows you to update your Twitter status from your mobile desktop.
The People Widget allows you to enable different actions for different contacts right from your desktop (say you want to call your wife with a single click and text your child from a single click).
The Messages Widget allows you to instantly see your email from the desktop.
The Android desktop is on a completely different level from the iPhone desktop. To compare them is actually unfair. Apples to …clairs as it were.

3: ConnectivityOn one of the ďpagesĒ of my Hero desktop, I have four buttons:

Turn on/off bluetooth
Turn on/off Wifi
Turn on/off Mobile Network
Turn on/off GPS
These buttons let you instantly switch on or off the various connectivity options, which will go a long way toward conserving battery life. There is also an app in the Market called Y5, which will turn off Wi-Fi automatically when no known wireless network is available. To do any of this on the iPhone, you have to go into the Settings screen and navigate your way around the various options.

4: PC connectionUnlike the iPhone, you donít need to have iTunes to manage your phone. Now, I say this with a bit of a chewed-up tongue because Android canít sync with the Linux desktop yet. Thatís okay for now. But Android can mount the SD card so that it is usable (via drag and drop) by any operating system. On this you can add music and files, which will then be usable on the phone. Simple.

5: Multi-notificationOne of the issues Iíve always had with the iPhone is its notification system. Basically, it depends upon a single system that not all applications have access too. For instance, if you are a Twitterer, you can find out if you have updates only by opening the Twitter app on the iPhone. With Android, the apps have access to the notification system and can all report. The notification bar on the Android phone can alert you to new voice messages, email messages, Facebook notifications, new Gmail, new text messages, and much more. If an app has a notification, it can let you know quickly, and in the background.

6: Endless personalizationI hesitate to place this on the list because so many readers seem to think user-configuration is worthless. Itís not. The Android phone allows users to configure their mobile to look and behave exactly how they want it. If youíre a social network power user, you can have a screen for Facebook, one for Twitter, one for texting, and one for Flickr. Or if you are a business user, you can have a screen for contacts, for your calendar, for gmail, for email, for RSS, and more. Not only can you configure the desktop the way you want, you can configure the behavior of your phone. Set up default actions for different contacts ó even add an entirely different desktop, should you want. The possibilities are endless with the Android phone. With the iPhone, youíre pretty much limited to what Apple says.

7: MarketYes, Apple has an app for that. But so does Android. And chances are, the Android app is free and works as well (or better) than the iPhone app. And, believe it or not, there are thousands of apps in the Android Market. Apple does not (at least yet) have a patent on an application for just about everything. Give it time though. And installing applications on your Android phone is actually easier than it is on the iPhone. For free applications, you donít have to worry about entering a password every time you try to install anything. And you do not have to link to Appleís iTunes store to purchase applications from the Android Market. For those apps that have a price, you enter your information on the Google Market one time and youíre done.

8: Google integrationThis one is almost not fair, since Android was built with the intention of integrating with Google. But wow does it integrate well. Want to search Google? Simply click the search button, enter your search string, and youíre off and running. Did I mention Google Voice? Yes, the Android has an app for that.

9: Open SourceWhy does being open make Android better than iPhone? For the same reason that being open helps Linux: a planet full of developers with the ability to aid Androidís developers. Anyone can get access to the source of Android to better the system. This is also a double-edged sword, in that it allows those will less-than-ideal intentions to discover any weakness of the phone. But that can be seen as an indirect plus because when weaknesses are found in the open source community, they are quickly fixed. I assume that this tradition will extend to the Android phone. iPhone open? Youíre kidding right?

10: Open to carriersThis is yet another reason why Android is superior. If you want an iPhone (at least for the time being), you better be open to AT&T. If you donít like AT&T and you still want an iPhone, you better be open to doing a little jail breaking or move to another country. If you want an Android phone, you can join any number of carriers and have your choice of any number of outstanding phones using Android. No lock down.

Your takeWhat do you think: Are these reasons enough to get you to move from your iPhone to an Android phone? If not, tell us why you prefer the iPhone. And if you arenít sure, just grab an Android phone and play around with it. You might quickly change your mind

i've watched youtube videos where they put up a droid vs a 3gs and used their web browsers against each other (both were on 3G) and the iphone loaded pages quicker. yes android has flash which apple is retarded for not having. i could see it coming out sometime now since they have a nice competition brewing up with android and apple being pretty lax on their app store approvals lately.

iphone doesn't have widgets out of the box but if you really want them, there's a jailbreak app for that

the whole connectivity thing you brought up is a nonexistant issue for me because i use sbsettings to quickly toggle airplane mode, bluetooth, wifi, 3g, etc

you also don't have to use itunes to sync the iphone

i have my gripes about the push notification system on the iphone but you can have twitter notifications.. i get them all the time. plus if you want to get like a missed phone call or text notification in the background, there's a jailbreak app for that 8)

yeah android out of the box allows for a lot of customization but i can customize my iphone to my liking also after jailbreaking

because android is open source it makes it better than iphone? i like how it is open but it doesn't make it better solely from that. linux is open source and i still wouldnt use it over windows

and i read that google navigation is coming to the iphone soon so android won't have the leg up for much longer if it's true

quick question... what happens to your apps and stuff if you switch phones with ANDROID?

i know with the iPhone you can continue to transfer the apps over to as many devices you wish.... (as long as they are authorized)... can that be done with Android?

For example me and my Girlfriend share all our apps that we purchase by authorizing our accounts and also all the apps i had for my original iPhone go on my 3g and so forth... if i purchased an iPod touch they would work there as well....

anyone know how that works?

everyone seems to say that iTunes is what is bad for the iPhone... but i am the opposite i love the integration between them and being able to authorize accounts and being able to transfer not just your apps but music and movies from device to device.
