Android vs. iPhone

  1. 0
    Ok, I've read almost all the threads on here, and although I've seen lots of other comparisons, I haven't seen this one. Sound off please, on which OS you've found to be more helpful, comfortable to use, etc....
    I'm leaning towards Android anyway, b/c I am not eligible for an AT&T account at this time. But I'd still like to hear others' opinions.

    Thanks!

    I hear Verizon is coming out with an iPhone in early 2011. Perhaps that's an option? It seems as if the iPhone has more nursing apps options than Android, or at the very least the iPhone gets the apps long before Android. I am on Verizon and have an Android, but I may switch to an iPhone if the timing is right to upgrade.

    I have never used either, but I have had an iPod Touch for about two years and I love it dearly. The one thing I didn't like about the touch, mine's a 3rd gen, was that you can't run two apps at the same time. Apparently, they fixed that on the iPhone 4, so that's what I'm getting. My friend has an android phone and she complains about it a lot.

    Well, now that Verizon has confirmed the iPhone, I am happy to know that I stayed with them and have the option of getting one without leaving what I believe has been the most reliable cell phone carrier I have ever had since first getting a cell phone in 1999 (with Verizon since 2003). I decided to wait for the iPhone 5, that will be offered soon enough and it will be a more optimal time to upgrade.

    I like my present phone, but the battery really sucks. Also, iPhone apps are always developed before Android if ever. Tired of being 2nd best with the app developers.

    As far as applications go And that's only temporary, seeing as how the android market is a couple years younger. There are androids out there that blow the iphone away as far as hardware capabilities and specifications.


    Give the android app market some more time to mature, they're well on their way towards surpassing the iphone!




    But for current purposes, iphone of course. Android really doesn't have enough apps to compete in the medical genre!

    Right now I would not buy either. Both are due for a major upgrade in the Summer. Both should be going to a tegra 2 chip which screams and android will be going to honeycomb (new improved operating system) at about the same time. Next, verizon is going LTE (fast data connection) as I type and I want my next phone to have the best connection. Right now I have an iphone GS and love it. But I could easily switch to android. All the apps I use are also on the android system and some that I would like to use are not available on the iphone. If you buy right now or in a few weeks when verizon starts selling the iphone, you are going to be kicking yourself by Summer.

    Droid X: we love ours. When our friends with AT&T have no coverage, they ask to use our phones.
