I currently switched from an iphone 4 to an android. Personally I liked the iphone for the simplicity and not having force closes or having to pull the battery. But android is nice for customizing your phone to how you want. Either way android or iphone...both phones are awesome depending on what you want in a phone. I've had iphone 3g, 3gs, and iphone 4 and I've had many of the Android phones as well. Plus, Nobody nees to bash steve jobs....his creation of the iphone was obviously genius because apple made billions of dollars from it....and i dont know if apple haters are just jealous or what but damn...everyone needs to calm down. everyone has their right to their own opinion...either way both android and iphone are awesome smartphones.... something to think about too....apple's phones and OS even though they arent as advanced, as android fans say....but they are still just as successful or more successful than android...even with all of androids phones and advancements....

What if I bought the iPhone 4 because I believed that it would level the field in terms of user customization in the next iOS update? Because I totally did. And I totally expected that - like many many many others. And that totally didn't happen. So now I'm totally disappointed, and totally pissed when the iSheep refer to iOS 5 as the greatest innovation ever since the dawn of industrial age.

Ok, well maybe your salesman should have sent you to look at an Android. You can change your wallpaper. With the new iOS, they are making it WAY EASIER to get notifications, emails, facebook, and that twitter garbage. Anyways, if you like customization, get an Android. But those phones need some serious software revamping. My buddy has an iPhone 4, and he pretty much does everything I do in a given day, and I charge my phone at least twice when I am over there. It is annoying. I just want to get my information, and get off of the phone. With an Android, you constantly turn off data, GPS, WiFi... WHY?!?! It is way too frustrating. I MIGHT take a look at the GSII, but I am waiting for the iPhone 5, no questions asked.

Sounds like you didn't know anything about Apple. Every person who is familiar with Apple knows they like to control their devices to improve the user experience. Getting an Apple device so you can customize is silly at best and really just ignorant. You should be upset with yourself not Apple.

Dj21o - I'm not even going to respond to that. taco50 - I also know - or at least have known - that when it comes to features and innovation (oh, how ironic) Apple used to be at the top. Now, they are just copying others. And not even fully doing that. Widgets are innovative. So are live wallpapers. And yet Android has them - and Apple does not. Heck, Apple cannot even say that widgets are useless - when they implemented them themselves in MacOS X.

I have been coming on this site for years. I read articles but never looked at the comments until a month or so ago, and I can't believe what I'm seeing. Having a preference about a specific device or company is one thing, but most of what I see here is pure hyperbole and "fanboy-ism" to the highest degree, and it's really sad. Complete disclosure: I have owned 3 Blackberrys and 2 (soon to be 3) Android decives.I respect Apple products for their simplicity, reliability, and ease-of-use, but will never own one because I'm not a fan of the Apple ecosystem, and I also enjoy the freedom Android provides. I admit that Android is not perfect by any means, but it's perfect for me. If Apple products, or Blackberry products, or Windows Mobile, Nokia, WebOS products are more your spped, then by all means use what you like, But all this constant bickering and "my phone's better than yours", "your cell provider sucks" bull is overdone and childish. NONE of you is getting a cut of any profilts from these companies, and none of you should be blindly pledging your allegance to or willing to fight to the death for any of these companies. At the end of the day, they just want your money. You are a consumer, nothing more. Get over yourselves, stop being idiots and exercise your right to use your brains.

I don't understand why people keep saying that without Apple android wouldn't exist. That's completely untrue. Maybe it wouldn't have existed at the time that it came out, but all of these mobile OS's would have eventually been created. No matter who did it first.
