Pros Nice refined product with style. No dropped calls, not one.
Cons To many apple limitations. No 4G speeds. 3G speeds were very slow on verizon (no fault to apple)
Summary Great product in apples 4th gen iphone. BUT after experiencing slow data speeds around 300kps on verizon's 3G network, I had enough.
"Love Apple!!"on by akaram14
Pros The pro is that it is apple! It is so user friendly its ridicuous! Great screen and there really is an "app" for everything! The touch screen is great, and the phone is so fast!
Cons Few things I don't like that will hopefully come out with the upgrade coming. Explained below.
Summary Cons: I don't like how you don't get time stamps on every single text. really annoying, almost considered jail breaking my phone to have this feature, but I decided against it. There is no LED light flash, which was weird switching from a blackberry, but you learn to get used to it. It sucks that you can't add memory or change the battery, but I havent even come close to using half of my memory (you can store things your not using at the time on your computer), and because of the kind of battery that is in the phone, you can charge it at any level during the day and it will still be "healthy" for the battery. I would recommend downloading a battery application, this helps keep your battery healthy longer.
Summary: I love this phone! It definitely took me a while to get used to the whole notification system, and having to download different email applications to get push notifications, but I'm getting used to it. Although so many people think that the droid is better than the iphone(and who knows it might be) I just love apple. Both phones are great and it really comes down to your own personal preference. I was debating between the droid thunderbolt and this phone, I finally decided on the iphone. why not? we have been waiting for this phone for FOREVER! why would we change our mind now. Just like any phone, you get used to everything. I do however love how the droids have the notifications on the top and you can slide them down. But the droid is an open source device, and things you download could be bad for your phone. Great great phone!! I would definitely recommend it!
Pros The speed the looks the feel
Cons Havent found any yet
Pros The iOS is superior and very quick and consistent. Camera and video very nice interface and takes nice pics. Hardware is simply beautiful and very sturdy, almost heavy, but in a good way. Syncs nicely with all my other Apple products (via mobile me).
Cons #1- No voice to text feature that Android has done quite well. Any field where you could type, you could speak it.
#2- Turn by turn voice navigation. Free.
#3- Really miss the missed call/alert notifications. Flashing LED's or sounds for missed calls
Summary iPhone (Verizon) update. Day 6.
In general I am quite happy but there are some things I am missing from the Android platform.
#1- I really did get used to, and use, the voice to text feature that Android has done quite well. Any field where you could type, you could speak it. Not just texting.
#2- Turn by turn voice navigation. Free. I understand that the Verizon iPhone is getting, or has this feature but it is like 32 bucks a year. Android has this and really does it quite nicely for free.
#3- Really miss the missed call/alert notifications. On Android, you can set it to make a noise, say every 5 minutes, if you miss a text or a call. And-or the led will flash so that you can see you missed something without having to wake phone.
Not saying these are deal breakers, but I am a bit disappointed they aren't available, to my knowledge, on iPhone.
Things I really like...
The iOS is superior and very quick and consistent. Camera and video very nice interface and takes nice pics. Hardware is simply beautiful and very sturdy, almost heavy, but in a good way. Syncs nicely with all my other Apple products (via mobile me). Cool to change calendar on iPad and see it here.
That's the latest.
PS.. Typed all of this on the iPhone and it seems to be a better texting experience than Android.
Also... Any iPhone users put there that know of ways or apps to do any of the above...please let me know.
Pros The phone is well built. It doesn't have the cheap plastic feel you see with some Droids. The reception is good. I haven't had one dropped call yet. The voice on both ends is great. The internet is plenty fast. Overall, a high-quality phone.
Cons My biggest complaint would have to be the battery. If there is one thing Apple and the various Droid phone companies need to steal from Blackberry, it is the battery life. But the IPhone battery life is better than the Droids I've seen.
Summary I have been a religious Blackberry user for many years. My wife has also loved her Motorola Droid. However, the Verizon IPhone 4 is by far the best phone I've seen with Verizon. The Verizon IPhone 4 is truly a finished product.
