My sister loves the Iphone, her husband loves the droid.. which one is better and why?
I've never used the Droid so I can't really contribute to this thread lol. I do like the Iphone though.
iPhone is better for games. Thats all I can say.
Yes I am aware that phones aren't made for games.
The iPhone in my opinion. The Droid has a better camera and some have slide out keyboards, but I prefer Apple products more.
Can't really say to be honest. I had an iPod Touch for awhile, but all I have for a phone at the moment is an LG slider phone. But I do like the iOS format on the iPod Touch.
I have the newest iPhone and I have never used a Droid so I can't compare them to each other. I don't think it comes down to which is "best" but rather which phone satisfies your own personal needs.
The android operating system is far superior to the iphone operating system. It's not as simple as saying Droid and Ipone either, because droid is just the name of one specific phone that has android. Though, iphones only have Iphone OS, so it's perfectly reasonable to just say Iphone.
Phones can be made for games! 12 years that Gameloft exists.
Says a 14 year old who's got tiny fingers.
The Droid is good for people who like customizing. But let's be honest, is that really that big of a deal? Iphone is superior in every other category.
That would be your opinion. And a wrong one.
iPods can be customized. You can move apps around anywhere you choose. You can create random folders for them. You can set your own backgrounds for the lock screen and background screen. You can customize alot, those are the obvious.
You do all that on an Android plusyou can add widgets that display information such as weather, Facebook, calendar appointments, unread messages, Twitter, Facebook, news, music controls, sports scores, toggles such as WiFi and Bluetooth, and more on the Android homescreen. You can choose to use a different web browser, SMS application or music player if you so desire. You can change the keyboard if you want a different one such as Swype. And that's just some of the customization options you can do on Android that you can't do on an iPhone.
Android 1, iPhone 0.
Android can be installed on your home computer as a stand-alone operating system. (no, not emulated, you don't even have to have a phone to install it)
Android's source code can be legally edited and distributed as a Linux operating system
Android can be ported to a diverse range of other devices and be embedded in other cool technologies such as Sony Internet Television, Automobiles, The new PlayStation phone, (title pending) Tablet PC's such as Dell Streak (among many others)
Android Can handle ~ 98% of the web as just as well as a desktop
Android can run on prepaid phones eliminating need for strict contracts
Android has a much more flexible application market, which means the ideas behind applications are almost limitless (so, what if more = more chance for bug, act like an adult and be smart enough to judge)
Android has more carrier options, which means more freedom for android users
Android is fully hackable for your enjoyment (if you so desire )
Android has better connectivity to other devices
Android has better and more specific multitasking support
Android can even be installed on an Iphone. (though it's illegal, not because you're installing Android but because Apple says it's a no no and it's against their TOU)
Android is opensource Duh.
In conclusion for what is just displayed right here
Android 10+ Iphone 0

Haha Nick. That's not the obvious........that's it.
But customization is a pretty minor issue. Iphone still rapes Android.
If you've actually owned an Android phone, you'd quickly find that customization is a major issue. And the iPhone notification system is absolute garbage, Android rapes the iPhone in that department too. Oh, and my Android phone doesn't drop calls if I touch it in the wrong spot. The iPhone is a piece of shit.
Expandable Storage? Point goes to Droid.
Larger Screen? Point goes to Droid.
5MP camera vs 8MP camera? Point goes to Droid.
Dual LED flash vs single flash? Point goes to Droid.
Total Talk Time? Point goes to Droid.
Adobe Flash? Point goes to Droid.
HDMI-capable? Point goes to Droid.
iPhone rapes what?
It rapes this:
On second thought, maybe not. I bet that one doesn't drop calls if you hold it the wrong way.
I take it by the lack of rational (read: ANY) responses from the iPhone side that they don't have anything as a rebuttal.
On a related note:
