Ask someone w/ a droid 2 when they're getting ice cream sandwich. Motorola isn't supporting that phone any more, and I'm sure it's the same for many of them
I just embarrassed myself with this post
iPhones run smoother in general, and are a little more stable and predictable in terms of apps (since there really is only one or two iphone variants ever introduced each year for developers to worry about....in the case of the 4s, there was one period, I think). There are more apps in the app store. Many people (including me) already had an itunes music library that could be easily synced to the phone. Accessories are ubiquitous.
Androids have larger screen sizes, are a little more customize-able, give you access to the filesystem (can I save an email attachment on an iPhone?), have removable memory and batteries for the most part (a handful do not).....the gap in music syncing has really closed with the Google Play Music app.....Android phones come in innumerable sizes and designs (including qwerty/slider that some prefer). Does iOS have widgets? I'm not sure, and for some that's not a big deal.
To each his own, and I think there are benefits to both. As for this court case, Sammy is seemingly run by idiots and got what they deserved to an extent. That doesn't mean Apple is about to crush Android though.
Fair enough, although I couldn't imagine my phone running any smoother than it does.
As far as apps, I can't remember the last time I wanted an app and there was only an Apple version.
I don't care about music on my phone at all, but I can see that as a distinct apple advantage, but again that's part of the cult, if you can get them off the IV drip of itunes then it's probably a push.
Good list. The iphone is also incredibly easy to use and intuitive in design. It just works well. (compared to the awfulness of itunes).
if you have an android phone and you're not flashing custom ROMs you're not doing it right. especially if you have a nexus
Carriers and manufacturers would rather you buy a new phone than upgrade the old one. That's a big part of the problem. The unlocked Nexus phones get good support.
Also, android owners do look forward to the new OS and sometimes the phone just can't handle it. I don't know of many iOS users who say, "D@mn, I have to have iOS 5/6." When they get that new iOS, sometimes features are left out unnecessarily.
This is one of the differences between the two: Android is a third party OS while iOS/qnx are not. It is a lot easier to coordinate the two when 1) you make the hardware and 2) there are only 2-3 different phones to support and test.
That's all fine and well, but my point all along is Android phones and Apple phones have basically the same issues
i'm pretty sure i already made this statement earlier in the thread, or in the android thread, and i tried to convince you there.
latest OS software w/ performance and gui tweaks, free tethering (not sure if root is needed for this anymore), better battery life, etc
(not real but don't you wish it was?)

That's awesome if true (which it isn't but let's pretend it is).

article today which I read early and will try to find when i have a few minutes later has samsung ditching android for all msoft products. i don't buy it, but would be interesting. the new samsung windows 8 devices look awesome!
Japan feels differently...
BTW, my personal decision will go between the new iPhone and whatever kick ass LTE phone Sprint has coming up. I would like NFC communications, LTE Voice, and HDMI out if possible. My Samsung Epic running Ice Cream Sandwich is starting to show its age.
From Yahoo! News: A Tokyo court on Friday dismissed Apple Inc.'s claim that Samsung had infringed on its patent — the latest ruling in the global legal battle over smartphones that pits the two technology titans against each other.
