    You're asking if an android based phone is better then the iPhone on an apple fan site :rolleyes:

    Get the iPhone, its a better phone and the OS is better.

    Without defining your needs, your expectations and preferences, its impossible to tell what is better for your needs.

    Its your money and your decision, get the one you want.

    Device selection (and the word "better") is highly subjective. You need to tell us what your needs/wants are if you want recommendations that are relevant to you. Otherwise, compare the specs and read up both and see which one seems like it suits you best -- same as shopping for anything else, really.

    Again, highly subjective. Do your friend's needs/wants and other preferences exactly match yours? As always, consider the source. One person disliking something doesn't automatically mean that the next person will automatically dislike it for the same reasons as well. Have you not noticed this in real life? Pay attention to how people prefer different foods, colors, cars, etc etc. It's no different with smartphones. No one smartphone is best for every single person out there. Anyone that tells you otherwise is in marketing for the product or a fanboy blindy recommending their preferred choice to everyone.

    For some, the 4s is a better choice. For others the Sensation XE is a better choice. None of your posts give us enough information to give you meaningful feedback. Ask your friends about the specifics regarding their complaints and see if they're relevant to you.

    Every product has problems. Spend some time on some HTC discussion forums and you'll definitely hear about problems. Don't rely solely on forum posts for assessing problems. Every discussion forum has posts with problems. People don't post when everything's working fine with no problems. They post when they have problems. Again, always consider the source.

    I'll tell you quite honestly the problem I had with my HTC Evo 4G, I have several friends that have it and they've also run into the same thing. At first the phone's are great, but then a few months go by, you get HTC updates, you get base Android updates and you get carrier updates. After a few rounds, you had a glitchy phone that ran like crap!! Even rooting it and using a custom ROM never got it to run like new, again.

    With the iPhone, all updates are incorporated into the OS. They aren't just slapped on top of each other. I watched my closest friend using his iPhone 4, which was older than my Evo, without any hassles and made up my mind to switch, as soon as it hit Sprint.
