Verizon iPhone 4 vs DROID 2 Global
Granted that there is very little static heard with both phones, we actually prefer using the Motorola DROID 2 Global for voice calls partly because its earpiece and speakerphone have better output over the Apple iPhone 4. Specifically, it’s stronger in tone which ultimately makes conversations more than audible to the ear, however, the iPhone 4 still provides an acceptable experience – but its output isn’t as strong.

Taking them around to various places, we did notice during our testing that the Motorola DROID 2 Global offers better signal strength over the iPhone 4. In most instances, we found the iPhone 4 to display fewer signal bars over the DROID 2 Global, but neither dropped phone calls.

Battery life easily goes to the iPhone 4 as we managed to obtain 1 ½ days of normal usage – which is better than the less than single day usage of the DROID 2 Global. Despite that, light users should still be able to get at least a solid day of normal usage on the handset, but the clear winner in the battery life department is the iPhone 4.


Conclusion:

Depending on your specific needs, either handset would make the perfect solution since they offer plenty of rich features that are complemented by their responsive nature. With the Verizon iPhone 4, we love its high-class design, detailed Retina Display, simplistic platform experience, video chat capabilities, and its focus on multimedia. Oppositely, the Motorola DROID 2 Global offers the convenience factor with its physical keyboard, global capabilities that enables it to be taken abroad, and the depth of enhancements with Android 2.2 Froyo. Ultimately, you can’t go wrong with either device, especially when they’re both priced at $199.99 with a contract right now.
