    Using the iPhone after using my iPad for just a few hours makes the iPhone feel older, outdated, less capable, and a worse experience. We may be spoiled by the noticeably higher quality 9.7" display, aluminum chassis, in-browser video, and better apps. I wonder if I'm the only one who feels that the iPhone is almost outdated after using my iPad for just a few hours. Maybe iPhone XL3GS will change that ;).

    Oh totally. I got a phone call on Saturday after using my iPad for 5 or 6 hours and was like "Damn this thing looks clunky." I even scrolled through the Internet and apps and was thinking about how primitive it looks after being on the iPad for less than a few days. This thing is downright transformative.

    The problem is we were using our iPhones for desktop tasks. i changed what apps I sync to my iPhone use it's strengths in navigation, looking up information on the go, and communications, and a few light games. Some iPhone apps just don't make sense for a phone.

    LOL, I have the exactly same feelings as all the posters above.

    I, too, changed the tasks for my iPhone to more suit it's phone-ness. But boy, did the iPad change my perception of my iPhone 3GS.

    Yeah, it's really weird to use the iPhone after using the iPad for a while. The iPhone almost feels cheap.

    Well, that's why the fourth generation iPhone is on its way. Don't worry, guys, it'll fix your weird feelings and perceptions instantly. LOL

    My iPhone feels like my iPhone too me. No love has been lost. I think people have a problem compartmentalizing gadgets, especially ones that operate in a similar way but have a different function.

    Baseball:Softball, iPhone:iPad.
