    I'll start off by saying that the iPhone 4 is the sexiest device I have ever seen. The incredible display, amazing build quality, and the new features of iOS4 make it a very appealing phone. But nobody can deny the unique features of Android that make it at least a viable option.

    I'd love to upgrade to the iPhone4 because of the new hardware, software, and features, but Android has many awesome features (Google Voice, Navigation, Goggles, etc.) that make it extremely appealing.

    What is keeping you from switching you to Android? I know this is an Apple forum, but please try to avoid giving blind, fanboy opinions.:D

    No. Switch if you want. Your decision does not affect anyone else here, therefore we don't care what product you buy.

    I know this is stupid, but the only reason I don't want to get an iPhone is because of the push notifications instead of the notification system on android.

    If you're trying to get people to make you stay with the iPhone, then you obviously want the iPhone 4. /thread

    No. Go get another phone on another network. It'll clear up the airways for me. The line on launch day will be that much shorter. See ya!

    -Apps. I have invested quite a lot of apps on iOS.
    -iTunes integration. I've been using iPods for years, so I'm used to Apple's tight integration with iTunes.
    -OS updates. iPhone 3G users will get iOS 4, despite missing features like multi-tasking. Compare that to Android users on 1.x handsets that were just released last year without any hints whether they would get an upgrade to 2.2 or not.
    -I'm on AT&T, and the only Android phones in the US that is usable with AT&T 3G are the moto Backflip and the Nexus One, and Google didn't even drop the Nexus One price a bit.

    Before I bought my 3GS, the best Android handset was T-Mobile myTouch 3G, and let's just say it's okay, but nowhere near the 3GS. Let's say if the same situation happened today and I was not heavily invested into the Apple eco-system, the Nexus One is a no-brainer.

    Google Voice - better than the iPhone's (at least for now - Apple just purchased voice search company Siri a few months ago), but that's not to say Apple's won't get better

    Google Navigation - it depends on your needs, but Navigon absolutely blows away anything Google can lay down - ignoring the steep price, Navigon (and other GPS apps) are way better, but again, it's what suites your needs

    What's Goggles?

    Other notes:
    - I can't trust Google with any of my data... they have WAY too many problems with that - it seems they can't keep their gritty hands off me
    - iOS is more polished/ user friendly
    - Android is far more prone to malicious apps, security problems, crashes, etc.
    - etc., etc.

    I could go on and on, but I really don't want too...

    Then get Android for now, and just wait until Apple improves their Push Notifications. It's as simple as that. And, yes, I do agree that that is a pretty dumb reason, but it should be getting better soon. Apple just hired Palm's WebOS guy who created the Push Notifications, so yeah...

    For now.
    Give Android a year/year and a half and I think the polish will be up there with Apple.

    You guys really are a sensitive bunch.

    I like the iPhone. I also like Android. What is so hard about telling me what you like about the iPhone? I'm tryng to make a decision with my purchase, not try to bad mouth the iPhone. Some of you are just ridiculous.

    Is it really so hard to make a list of what you think the iPhone does better?

    Are you an Android fanboy? And I doubt it will quite be at Apple's level either.

    Absolutely not, I love my 3G and plan on preordering the iPhone 4 on the 15th. But I do think Android is doing some cool stuff too. What's wrong with healthy competition?

    You're assuming Apple will be standing still with iOS 4 in those time frame. As good as Android is improving, we will see iOS improving too, and then there's WinPho7.
    2.2 is very promising though, especially with its free tethering feature. I wouldn't buy an Android phone today that is not guaranteed to get 2.2.

    No I shall not convince you, if you don't like the iPhone, get the Android and shut up about it and your comparisons... no one cares.
