DROID X Vs. iphone 4

2010-06-25, 15:32 PM

This article will make you believe that the iphone 4 is better than the Droid X... as they say, on paper the Droid is better, but not according to their tests.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/199844/iphone_4_vs_droid_x_a_headtohead_comparison.html

Look past the article, the comments of both Droid and iphone users who call out the article's writers as bias is where the truth lies.

Verizon Vs. at&t?

It's obvious that at&t and iphone are not a powerful combo...

Once again, Apple does it first, Android does it better

Tom, have you read in the news media today about the problems they're having with the iPhone4?   I couldn't be happier.  Of course, comparisons are inevitable.  Actually, I'm interested in a Droid 2, partially because of the improved keyboard and specs, but mostly because it's nearly identical to the Droid 1 and my wife probably won't notice the difference.  (If they'd just left the colors alone, it would be a lock.) - Mark

I haven't seen any of the recent problems they are having with the iphones, but it makes me chuckle to think about the people who waited in the lines and are now having problems! Any links to these articles?

I am also waiting patiently for the Droid 2, although I'm not overly extatic about some of the specs. I wish we would get some more infor on this 2 GHZ monster supposedly coming by the end of the year, specifically if it will also have a physical QWERTY! 2GHZ + Front/ Rear cam + Physical QWERTY + Android 2.3?? lol It's a lock, sign me up!! (Btw for anyone looking, I know nothing about an Android 2.3... just throwing hypotheticals out there).

If you look at all of the blogs on the Internet who reviewed the original Droid, there are so many points they missed *completely*, and they misled countless people to believe things were, well, beyond belief good.  The fact of the matter is, *all* of the bloggers are in a head-long rush to be the first to make reports/reviews on cell phones, and accuracy be darned.  It takes extended testing of a cell phone to know what it's truly all about, so be careful what/where you read your information and take a great deal of it with a grain of salt.  --- Dan

Certainly it should go without saying tht this all should be taken with a huge grain of salt. You're right though, only time will tell who the true performers are!

Death to the iPhone! It is exciting to see Android really come into it's own as a platform. I can't wait for the day when someone mentions an app, and people assume it is for Android rather that the iPhone.

Benny, *that* day is here, for many, especially for those of us who know true technology and appreciate the type and quality that Google continues to pump out to us and our Droid's.  As far as the general public realizing this, I don't think it's that far away either.  As I can see you are an Android believer as am I, seems it can be safely envisioned that everyone will be eating Android's dust within one year, JMHO  --- Dan

Just watching some television, saw this commercial come on tv.. it was a close up of a guy's eye. It started doing all of these weird things, and then the retina turned metal... and then I realized this was a Droid X commercial.... sure enough. I recognized it from the leaked commercial scripts from a couple weeks ago. It didn't give much, but it was a cool teaser.

I saw the same commercial, it sure lacked the impact   of the original Droid commercials (pun intended).  The original Droid commercials were simply genius for the demographics they were targeting.   --- Dan

Yeah, I miss those Stealth commercials!

This could be the grudge match par excellence.  But I really think the 2 platforms are appealing to 2 distinct subsets of consumers.  I'm sure Droid X and 2 will hold their own against iPhone 4.

I love the new eyeball commercials.

I still think iPhone is a heck of a device, but the better Android phones sure can look it in the eye (so to speak.... And the big screen on the Droid X is going to be a deal-closer for many people -- like me!

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

I really like the eyeball commercial too.  I think that I am going to hold out for the Droid 2.  I want a crack at that 2 GHZ processor!  The bigger screen would be nice too though.  I also read that the Droid 2 will come out with Gingerbread.  I think that I can wait a couple extra months for the faster phone.  This screen is big enough for me.

You may very well be right.  I just read an article here that states Motorola will be coming out with a 2 ghz phone by years end.  I may have mixed up the info with the Droid 2.  Anyway, I think that I might be getting me a Christmas present of a fast phone if that is the case.

Check this video out, getting a lot of attention in the viral world. And the guy who made it worked at Best Buy, they're all pissed... retards. This video is accurate and hilarious!!! It's EVO vs. iphone, but very relevant for Android users!!
