"The most gorgeous, "simply works phone" available."5.0 starson by Rearden73
Pros: Best display on the market by a very long shot. Incredible app selection, and you can trust them. Seamless and simple activation and syncing with existing iTunes. Fantastic speaker volume and clarity.
Cons: None. The drawbacks others would consider cons, I wouldn't use.
Summary: Perhaps the reason there are no cons listed above is because I've been using such an inferior device for a couple of years. It's been a long wait, but my Verizon iPhone has finally arrived...and exceeded all expectations. I already have two more bars of reception in my house than with my old device. The retina display is simply the most beautiful display available. Honestly, in side-by-side tests, when you scroll through a Droid screen and then scroll through an iPhone screen, the Droid looks awful. Anyone who thinks different is kidding themselves. The data speeds on the 3G connection are as fast as on my iPod touch connected to wi-fi. I would rarely find myself needing simultaneous talk and data, so I can't list that as a con. Sure it'd be nice to have, but if I get to the point when I need to do that much at once, I've got other problems. As many Apple fans know, much of the appeal of the iPhone is quite simply that it's a very sophisticated-looking and extraordinarily elegant piece of electronics. It's...just...beautiful. I know that the competition has increased greatly during the years I've waited for this, but I've seriously seen nothing in a Droid that can make me want one over an iPhone. The Droid's screen ratios are unattractive, they're too big, clunky, etc... The resolution makes scrolling look choppy.
For me, this is the best phone on the market, and its elegance and ease-of-use still stand head and shoulders above any other device.
