Discussion in 'iPhone' started by Kathie63, Nov 25, 2010.
All this semi-trolling from both sides is really getting tiresome. Just my two cents.
I was out playing around with HTC and found I will stay with my iphone, Hoping Apple gives us some goodies for iphone 5
The irony in Ltzguy is hilarious. I love it.
Above we have a guy who has admittedly failed to deliver between his expectations and choices made regarding Droid.
Aside: List price for the iPhone4 starts at $659, so what's your point. A subsidy is critical to your selection? Verizon has the Incredible for $149. You can sell your iP4 as a further subsidy and if you get it, I'll root and install CM and Swype for you, only if you promise to come back here and post of your experience.
Anyway I’m guessing his failure was due to bad timing and/or price motivations. To that I say,
Whatever the case, he felt shafted and now he is vehemently and blindly anti-Droid. And really I’m not the only one that sees it.
So he goes from Droid to iPhone, is here to validate said choice and has no room for other’s here that have a position other than full on fan-atic.
Buddy, I have both the N1 and 2xiP4. For a thread such as this, at least between you and I, I can contribute more than just a flat out troll. Also to your comment above, my iP4s are nicely JB'd, no I've not been shafted by Apple and I'm one of the first to extoll the advantages cracking said phone.
Check my record. Despite my admission to hating Steve Jobs I am objective enough about these things that I will select an iDevice for someone if I honestly feel it will serve that person better. A bit of a hoity toity comment I admit, but in my line of work and as a general influencer of tech choices amongst my circles, its something that I actually have to be responsible for.
Finally, I do try to be constructive and respectful about my posts in this iPhone forum but please remember that there actually are iPhone owners here that do not necessarily share your view on either iPhone/Apple or Droid.
In reflection of your tone with me, "you are dismissed" :dft011:wicked_smile
Trust me... it does nowhere near as good of a job. This coming from an iphone user since the first one. Not trying to make converts, just expressing my opinion. They are both great phones and this forum is the most polite, which is why folks feel comfortable posting.
This is really my only complaint with the iPhone 4. I tested a Nexus One for a week, and my phone at the time (3GS) was far superior, in my opinion. Since testing it, I have no interest in Android phones.
I've found a temporary solution for the Bluetooth problems on the iPhone 4. In my experience, it seems to have a one month half-life of usability. It works well for a while, but the range gradually decreases and distortion (muffled sound) increases over time. A restore to factory settings will temporarily repair it, but resetting all settings has the same effect and it's much easier. It only takes a few minutes to put your settings back in. It's a bit of a hassle to have to do this monthly, but it's better than dealing with the frustrating Bluetooth problems, especially if you use it a lot.
Please try to remain civil. I'll remind everyone else here to do the same, no matter what side of this debate you're on.
I'm with him this is getting boring I doubt the androids will win in an iPhone forum
It really doesn't matter who "wins" and who "loses." I just see this debate degenerating into posturing and veiled insults on both sides. If it continues I'll shut it down. I really don't want to do that, though.
Come on chief, do not do that now! My wife is enjoying it.
We'll see how it goes. :dft010:smiling
Lol, we are just having a little fun altho we might have gotten a little carried away! I'll just sit back for now tho. I see he is happy with his device and that's all that matters. I was just having a little fun!
I also use Google search on my iPhone 4. After saying "call Home Depot", it gives my the nearest one to my location. After that, I only have to tap on the number to call it. Works just as well..... As far as speak to text goes, I use an app called "Dragon Dictation", works the same way. I speak into it, hit done, and I have the option to send what I said directly to sms, email, facebook, or twitter.......
I'm glad that you are happy with your Droid, as it is really nice, however, the iPhone has plenty of apps. that will accomplish the same thing in the end. So, I would say, the iPhone, and Android are BOTH very good at doing what they do. What it comes down to, is a matter of what works the best for the customers...... Cheers Mate!
It just comes down to for what u r using the phone. The voice recognition in the N1 may be better. I've always been frustrated w any v recog. Last night I tried using it to search for something (dunno if ip4 does that) but then it called a random friend who didn't even sound like what I said. And half the other froyo stuff n root, I just got some of the JB lingo for iPhone but it gives average people headaches.
OK. Can appreciate your spirit and tone here.
As for previous comments about "win". No, that doesn't make any sense, this is an iPhone forum.
Just a different position on the spectrum, had zero involvement here till we got our iPhones, would like to push at the walled garden and at times keep things accurate at least based on my own hands on experience.
Must also confess there isn't an Android equivalent to EIC. XDA is a huge board, at this moment 8179 online with 3695 being members. EIC, 3565 & 61. EAndroid, 163 & 9. But I use XDA as a tech resource. It's really a dev board so the threads aren't anywhere as fun as here.
BTW. If you're curious heres a link to a "should I buy an iPhone" thread from XDA's recently launched iPhone web.
At this stage I'm guessing most members are cross platform but tending to be pro Droid given the XDA connection, the thread is professional and discussing the best fit for the OP.
edit: anyway to make that link hyper from the iCafe app?

What carrier are you with? I just looked at USC's Droid offering and the Desire & Galaxy are their top Droids. Don't touch the other units or you will be disappointed, having had the ip4. Would also recommend rooting either as the website says those units are running 2.1 whereas 2.2 is more likely to satisfy you. What is it that you need from a phone?

Ok had total booze induced battle w good girlfriend about HTC 4G vs ip4 n yes her photos on FB loaded a bit faster (could've been network) bc both on 3G bc she doesn't even get 4G where we live. But then her battery died later n that was the end of conversation. She charged her phone this morning, n I charged mine yesterday (all my troubles seemed so far away) n my other friends were like his is smaller (for once a good thing) now I m trolling n rocking aphex twin station on pandora going like mwah ha ha ha. Yeah I gotta get rid of the ip4 quick to get Evo...yeah right. Oh ps I told her to turn brightness down that had to've been it right? How can u argue about what phone's better when urs is dead mwah ha heh.
i had a 3G and than went for a desire, 3 months later sold it and bought a iP4 nothing comes close... its the little things to be fir i couldnt get on with with desire
1. i couldnt type on the keyboard- keys too close together
2. browser links - always hit a small link on iPhone and it magicall gets it right the desire always went someplace else. hated that
3. market is soooo poor compared to the app store
But she still won the 'argument' I bet. Just ask her! Hhahaaa
