I got the iPhone on release and used it up until the 15th when I got the Droid X. I can tell you that I'm not a fan of Android but what I am a fan of is how the Droid seems to instantly connect a call. When dialing out on the iPhone it seemed to take forever for the phone to start ringing. I would literally have to look at the phone to make sure I dialed my contact. Is this common for anyone else? Now on the Droid, the call seems to be ringing before I even get the phone to my ear; it's literally that fast. Is this an attribute to the phone or to Verizon's network? For the record, I could not replicate the death grip signal drop. I did purchase and use a case for protective purposes though.
