iphone or droid?

{enter the "my memories suite" giveaway right here!}

so i've finally jumped on the bandwagon and got a white iphone 4s--my poor droid was dropped many times and had many cracks to prove it. sprint just recently got the iphone (friday, I believe?) and with my upgrade it wasn't TOO expensive for me to make the switch. a friend of mine asked me which i liked better my iphone or droid so i thought i'd do a quick comparison on here! i had an Evo (4g) so definitely not a bad phone, I actually really liked it. granted i'm still learning everything on the iphone i thought i knew it enough to compare the two:



iphone:

-better apps

-can sync your itunes

-layout is sleeker/straight forward (apple has a 
way of making things look cool)

-one word: Siri {i don't know how much i am
actually going to use her, but she's COOL}

-icloud

-better camera

droid:

-you can personalize the layout MUCH more
{layout/organization}


-while text messaging, if you want to go back an edit 
something you can tap the screen and then there are arrows 
to move the cursor where you want it (iPhone does not have that 
so it makes it more difficult to correct a miss 
spelled word or change something you've typed)

-can make groups for contacts

-more widgets {quicklinks}

-still has a good camera

putting aside the fact that the iPhone is the "cool" phone to have right now, they're both pretty great phones-you just have to decide what aspects of a phone you want more-do you like designing it to fit you or would you like to use it as an ipod? because other than that they're pretty similar

which do you have/what are y'alls opinion on them?

DROID!


I had the iPhone for 3 years and loved it. I then switched to a Droid (Samsung Infuse). I love it 100% better and I'm an Apple lover. The phone is faster, has a better camera, most of the apps are free, lots of customization. I hardly ever leave links to my blog on other people's, but here is a post, where I talk about it when I first got it.

Oh yeah. You can still use the Droid as an iPod, but it does not work with iTuens. I downloaded an App that allows my music to be downloaded to the phone over my wireless network. I forgot the name though.

I have a Droid & I CAN'T wait until my contract is up so I can get the iPhone! The droid I have always gives me problems. I'm a total apple fan. LOVE my mac too.

You can edit a text message. All you do is hold your finger where you need to edit and it bring allows your to begin typing or editing where ever you need to!

I have the iPhone 3GS and have had it for two years now. I really love it! I use it mainly for email, internet, and my music, so it does everything I need. When the iPhone 5 comes out, I'm going to upgrade :)

I've had the Droid X and now I have the iPhone4 and my vote is for the iPhone! I am obsessed with it, it's practically glued to my hand all day!

By the way, because I love reading your blog, I left you an award on mine!

Hope you have a good Friday!

Droid all the way! I can't get the iPhone becuase I have yucky Sprint as a provider but from what I've seen with my friends iPhones die fast and are way too complex. I prefer simplicity :)
Ps. Love your blog.
