More importantly, iOS v. 4.3.3 (with the ability to disable iTracker) is now available for download from Apple.

I think the voice recognition software Apple uses on ios4 is very good. When making voice calls or BT calls - It Nails It. I would like to see them use this more - like on the Android phones. Every input opportunity has a speaker as an input method as well as keyboard options... I just tried to switch to Android but came back to iphone4 due to bad battery life, call quality, no cut and paste - on Android, and the voice recognition on Android is inferior to Apple iphone - in my opinion.

I switched from the iPhone 4 to the Evo and I'm never coming back. Are you kidding? Call quality sucks on AT&T and I always had to hold the phone "just right" or else the antenna would cut my bars down to ZERO.

I love the Google Voice Actions, IOS4 has nothing on it. And I have no problems using cut/copy and paste on my Evo, what world do you live in?

I have an iPhone and sell Android and iPhone.... Androids definitely have copy/paste, better voice recognition (more features), the SAME battery life (you're going to have to charge any smart phone at the end of the day), the call quality is the same... It comes down to a matter of preference for the OS. That's it.

I really like that Apple is catching up in the voice recognition world. Androids is far more developed and has better features.

Although, if you're some place noisy (bars, concert, listening to music, friends talking in the background, restaurants, school, etc)... Basically, if you are anywhere but in a quiet-ish area it will be frustrating and not worth the time to use. Sometimes its just easier to type it.

Android has more features than iOS , more options , browsing matches are close , But the big point is Apple has a looooot of apps than android ! Previous Test : iOS 380000 Apps And Android 250000 , not to mention that you can get apps from cydia than you can modify your iPhone to match the android interface and options ' Trust there is more !
