Too little, too late. Droid X is calling...
Thanks for letting us know what phone you plan to buy don't forget to update us on when you decided to go from briefs to boxers. Thanx.
Did you see the Droid X "Tomorrow" teaser commercial? Since when did Verizon get so good at commercials? It was awesome.
There's a new sheriff in town and it's called Android OS. iPhones are old news. Sorry Apple fanboys, but the HTC Evo 4G is the best phone on the market right now.
Yes... a 4.3" monstrosity of a phone. Even the new iPhone, which is larger than the old ones, isn't as big as that. And, the apps that it offers are all available on the iPhone already. Love Google products, but the Droid X just isn't as good of a portable device as it could be. iPhone is still king because of everything it provides in a small form, but it sucks if you're in New York or California and are hoping to get good phone reception as well. As far as the iPhone4 recalls? Haven't heard anything about this at all and I'm extremely happy with mine and have absolutely no problems with it. Of course, I live in the DC Metro area and have great reception. Otherwise, apps load faster, new OS offers some nicer features for e-mail and Web, and my apps still kick arse.
Actually from purely gaming performance, which matters since the PSX emulator is around the corner. The Samsung Galaxy S destroys both the EVO 4 and Droid X, The Droid X could give it a run for it's money but the EVO 4 with it's snapdragon processor doesn't have anything of Samsungs hummingbird chip. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Sure that ain't the EVO 4 but the HTC desire if anything has better specs then the HTC EVO 4. Not to mention although the Samsung's screen is only 4inch which is still massive compared to an Iphone 4, it's colour depth and the technology the screen uses blows both HTC's and Motorola's screens out the water. @above I agree the Droid X ain't really compacted enough for alot of people, But the Iphone 4 ain't king Samsungs galaxy S destroys it in every way possible. It has a better screen sure the resolution is smaller but it beats it in every other way. It's about the same size and dimensions even though it's screen is vastly bigger. It's lighter then the Iphone, it's browser is better, it supports flash. The only thing the Iphone wins on is the app store.
That does look nice. The only problem is that in our area Sprint and T-Mobile are not good choices in cellphone providers. AT&T and Verizon are kind of the only options that work everywhere here, especially on the Metro and outlying regions. I do love their UI and the presence of the Google Bar as part of it built in. As far as compared to the iPhone, the processor and screen are definitely better but everything else is the same. I think all smartphones must come with a 720p video recording capability, though. I've used it a ton already on my iPhone and I've only had it a week and it works better than my old DV-disc camcorder ever did :p
Samsung's Galaxy line of smart phones looks more appealing to me, personally.
A droid phone is hacked, and has Cydia and Installous installed is when droid will look even remotely close to competing with my iPhone as far as I'm concerned. Granted I just got the iPhone 4 and the jailbreak has yet to be released. The day it is i'll be jailbreaking this baby and getting all those delicious apps for free. TomTom, NBA GamePass (or w/e that app is that lets you watch all nba games), a bajillion games and much much more. People may not agree, but a jailbroken iPhone > Any Phone hands down.
Just get a case, problem solved.
Its true !!! A ninja with an apple logo on his mask tried sneaking into my room to steal mine!!. However I only own a 3GS. . . Once he checked it he apologised for the interruption and then told me not to download music for free as it makes his master angry and left in a puff of smoke.
Weird. I was trolling the PS3 yesterday and last night I saw a ninja outside my window staring at me for like 20 seconds then he disappeared.
I imagine he must have been easy to spot though, right? Since he was probably all dressed in white? :P
He had an app for that :)
HTCs phone never have any problems like this driod > iphone
Everyone says that now. And then one day the Droid will have a problem and people will start attacking. I'm no fan of Apple but I observe these trends often. I think Apple makes solid hardware and software for the most part. The public irrationally hates successful companies. They want them to fail. One day Google will reach a greater level of success, and then people will want it to fail. So, you guys go ahead with your Doid > Iphone. Next time it will be ??? > Droid.
The Droid is made of plastic, so of course they're no signal issues. Too bad plastic phones suck. Have you tried the HTC Legend?
The Motorola Droid is made of metal. Get your facts straight.
doesn't change the fact the HTC touch EVO 4 id the best smartphone ever made
At Gago the EVO 4G is completely destroyed in speed and screen tech by the Samsung Galaxy S try to keep up with current tech EVO 4G is yesterdays news.
And it works fine, I've been a long time purchaser of he iPhones and they've never let me down...
Gizmodo again.... You guys do know that they have a vendetta against Apple. So take their Apple info with a grain of salt.
Seems a lot of people on N4G have a vendetta against Apple as well. I hate the lack of portability of their music/movies and their views on enabling flash, but can't really say anything bad about their phones at all. Very well-designed and perfect for people on the move with all that they feature. I've seen nothing coming from Verizon that will offer me the same level of use that I get out of my iPhone. When they do, I'll considering jumping ship for a better phone service, but not until then.
I don't usually say things like this but since the iPhone came out, it has just been Milked, Milked, Milked... Moooo!
Really? How so? They've released one new iPhone each year. How many Droid phones does Verizon have already? Four in less than a year. I don't think I understand what you're trying to say.
I don't own an Android neither heard of anything called Verizon (I'm guessing American phone comp), In the UK the iPhone is sold at a ridiculous price, with the new models costing over £100 more with such minor improvments... No doubt the new iPhone 4 is a massive improvment from the first generation iPhone, I feel these people have paid for a prototype, you can't even hold the phones in the right way for instance, its unfortunate for me because I heard it affects left hand holders most of the time. Well I'm happy with my BlackBerry.
***you can't even hold the phones in the right way for instance*** I own one and this was very important to me. So far, I've had no issues with this at all. As far as the pricing, it's $299 in the U.S. as well, but for me a very worthwhile purchase. You can get the 3GS for $99 now, though. These prices are actually lower than what I've paid for smartphones in the past. Blackberry's have their place, but they don't do the majority of what I look for in a smartphone and they have had a ton of issues with being easy to hack and loss of service issues on the East coast. I think the issues of overpricing in the UK with most technology is a huge issue, but one due to import laws unfortunately.
How is it milked? they release a new updated model each year, how many handsets have HTC or RIM released over the last four years? how many Android handsets have launched in the last 12 months? are Google milking it by your definition? I use my iPhone 4 in my left hand and I don't lose signal. I can make the signal bars drop but it hasn't dropped a phone call. To make the bars drop you have to really hold the phone tightly in an unnatural way so for most its not a problem. Before anyone accuses me of being an Apple fanboy this is my first iPhone and only my second Apple product - the first being an iPod nano a few years ago. My last handset was a Blackberry Storm which I had free on my Vodafone contract in the UK. I'd happily pay the extra for the iPhone 4 having now owned it for a few weeks. The email is great, on par with my old Blackberry but the web browser blows the Blackberry out of the water. Many sites did not display properly on my Blackberry but show up perfectly on my iPhone 4. A central app store that works - unlike RIM's which often made my Storm lock up when trying to use it and it was a chore to find anything because it was soo slow. Music playback is obviously better on the iPhone and syncing with my email, contacts and calendar is more straight-forward on my iPhone 4. I think the whole signal issue has been blow out of proportion by a few sites with an axe to grind - particularly Gizmondo so its no surprise to see them make an article based on one story from an unnamed source.
iPhones are good enough devices, I just don't like the platform.
A friend of mine got her a few days ago. The bezel and aluminum sides are exactly as Gizmodo prescribed. O_O
They better replace my iPhone 4. Stupid proximity sensor f'ing up my calls.
"Gizmodo writes" heh...they're still doing that thing huh? Still sour against Apple I see.
I was so going to get a HTC Evo over the iPhone 4 but then i saw the battery life, I went with the iPhone. Ill take 2 days over 8 hours anyday.
Curious to see what Apple will say on Friday.
