Infographic: BIONIC vs. iPhone vs. Thunderbolt

Last week, we tossed together a quick chart that compared the DROID BIONIC, i*hone 4, and HTC Thunderbolt to give you all an idea of how incredible the new 4G LTE Android phones are on Verizon, but to also show that the much anticipated arrival of the Apple’s current phone is not worth wasting an upgrade on. ย Well fresh of the heals of our work, site Skattertech put together a giant infographic which displays our thoughts in even greater detail. ย In fact, when you see the number of red X’s on this thing for the i*hone, you should be running as fast and as far as you can from that February 10th date.

Full infographic after the break. ย

    Im not quite sure I understand the internal storage part. In some way/shape/form can all 3 phones have a sd or micro sd card … or are some just the actual phones memory?

    I’ve had the thunderbolt for a week. I think it just might be too much phone for me. I just want a good calendar, one or two apps and some music…I’m not into surfing on my phone. (I’ve always wished my itouch could be my phone and thought I was going to leep on the iphone, but waited for the T to come out.) I love the screen and much of the visual stuff on the Thunderbolt, I just don’t know if it’s worth searching to see how I can download my itunes and sync it with Outlook, etc. According to this, I’d be stupid to go to the iphone but it just so darn simple. I really like my Thunderbolt, but I just don’t know; do you really have to be a geek to get this phone the way you want it? I’ll use the next 7 days to decided. BTW.. “Heals” should be spelled, “Heels.”

  • Thunderbolts battery life is actually lower than in the chart. Now listed as 330 h Standby on verizon’s site

    According to BestBuy, the Thunderbolt’s dimensions are 123 x 67 x 14 mm – http://simulator.bestbuy.wdsserve.com/vdevice-bestbuy/common/

    Holy cow I am going to change the subject! I think this chart is off a little. Bionic doesn’t have front facing camera I don’t believe, but I think its video output is 1080p. The ONLY reason I’m hesitating on the Thunderbolt is the no mini HD out. I just like HTC better, thought the Bionic does seem to have many better specs overall. Kickstands kickass (Thunderbolt), come in handy suprisingly a nice thing to have. iphone really just shouldn’t be here as a comparison, not because I’m knocking it, just that it droid and ios phones are quite different. I like my itouch but would rather have droid os that iphone. Personal preference. Biggest thing for me – HD out has been a standard on most phones of this caliber why take it away? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am on the fence. I need to get off of AT&T and I want to move over to Verizon. I am currently an iPhone 3gs user and am thinking about moving over to Android. I know this is a droid forum so I want to hear some reasons to move over.
    I really like the swipe feature and the fact that flash can be played, but those are the biggest things for me. I’m concerned about syncing a mac with a droid, and the potential lack of fluidity, which I feel is great now with my laptop. That said, I am willing to give up some of that if droid is really that much better.
    Help convince me to move over. I love playing with a new gadget, but I don’t want to be stuck with something that I don’t want after that initial excitement wears off.

      Being an Android/Droid lover, this pains me to no end to say this (seriously, I think I am having a heart attack) but you should wait for the i*hone 5 to come to Verizon before switching. Even though Androids/Droids are obviously superior phones, the synchronicity between them and your (or any) Mac would be less than desirable. Of course, to throw a bone toward the Android/Droid gods, you could root one and use MIUI ROM, which mimics iOS and could help with the synchronicity. But don’t quote me on that.

      If you synchronicity is your game, then the i*hone 5 should be your phone of choice. However, if you like to root, and since you don’t mind to loose some of that sync, then an Android/Droid would do you nicely.

    Thanks for the comparison Kellex. Even though, for some reason, the iphone is getting all the attention in the comments this was also a really good comparison of the Bionic and Thunderbolt as well.

    Makes me glad I’m not up for a contract anytime soon because I want HTC but really am digging the Bionics specs and potential…

    I know I’ll get bashed for this, but I used to be all about android. This site alone has turned me off to it. All the iphone bashing made me look into it more, and I must say, thank you. All the negative comments have made me switch to iphone. Good job. Later android.

      As much as people persuade you to their opinion, don’t let it dissuade you from that fact also. Make an opinion on a subject based on its merits and not from hype or the power of suggestion. Hate on Android not because everyone is praising it or hating its competitors; but hate on it for what it actually is. Did we not learn anything from MLK day? =D

      Although, I must agree that there’s a lot of blind iPhone bashing on this site. It’s a Droid fan club online. I’d only wish they focus on the Android positives and not on the iPhone negatives.

    The problem with charts such as these is all they do is review the hardware. The most important thing in a phone these days is the software, its the software that makes even the OG iphone 2G run smoother than my overclocked droidx despite the droidx having much better hardware.

  • iOS vs. Android OS

    Unlike the iPhone or RIM’s BlackBerry, Android ships on a variety of phones from different makers, so you can’t generalize about the feature set you’re getting, just because a phone runs Android. For example, HTC has historically used cheaper, lower quality 16-bit displays compared to Motorola, while Samsung frequently opts for its own high quality AMOLED displays, although those have their own drawbacks related to use in bright daylight.

    Thus, while “iPhone” conveys a clear meaning about what features and standard of quality are going to be available, “Android” does not; it only refers to the shared code used across a variety of extremely different products from very different manufacturers, making the brand nearly meaningless to shoppers.

    Another major difference among various Android models is the version of Android OS they use. Many new phones ship with an old version, and won’t be updated within three to six months of the next Google release. Many cheaper models ship with software that is a year old, and users can’t typically install their own software updates in the same way iPhone users can. Verizon’s lineup (apart from the low end models) are just now getting around to all being updated to Android 2.2 (Samsung models are getting their updates this week). But Android 2.2 Froyo was released last summer, and Google has since released Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

    Verizon’s Android updates are not only slow to roll out, but are also packed with third party trial-ware and other apps users can’t easily remove. That only aggravates the problem of Android licensees typically installing less memory on their phones than Apple does, as well as Android’s less sophisticated use of storage memory compared to Apple’s iOS.

    Android does offer some competitive strengths over Apple’s iPhone. Android users will be quick to point out that their phones can run content created in Adobe Flash. Again, that’s only true for some models, as Flash Player requires Android OS 2.2. While that came out the middle of last year, many of Verizon’s phones still ship with OS 2.1 and don’t offer available updates.

    Those that can install the player are still stuck with the core problem of running Flash on mobile devices: it’s simply not optimized for mobile use, and most content developed in Flash was intended for playback on desktop PCs, and subsequently doesn’t work well on a mobile device. Still, for users with casual needs for access Flash content, Android offers something iOS doesn’t.

    Verizon also offers some Android models for free, or even in “buy one, get one” offers intended to sell smartphone contracts. Its cheapest iPhone option will be $199 with a contract, providing a minor barrier for some users interested in upgrading to a smartphone. To get a cheaper iPhone, users will have to opt for AT&T’s $49 iPhone 3GS. Of course, the Android products Verizon offers for significantly less than the iPhone 4 are also very low end models, as detailed below.

    However, even Verizon’s best Android models don’t match iPhone 4’s Retina Display, installed memory, camera features (most notably its front facing FaceTime camera), and video output features. Combined with other elements of the iOS ecosystem (including Apple’s far superior iPhone App Store, iTunes and compatibility with iPad), Apple’s rapidly rolled out frequent software updates for iOS, all the same features of Verizon’s network without the junkware, and a consistent, hardware optimized experience managed by a single vendor, and Verizon now has a very clear and obvious flagship smartphone to promote.

        • sov1et

          The issue isn’t the iTunes program itself. It’s the fact that a phone has to be tethered to a program on the computer to function at all. I mean, why do we need iTunes to activate a phone? And for syncing data too. Android is self-sufficient; does not need a computer at all to do what you need and want to do.

    2.) The iPhone has quite a few Turn by Turn navigation options. You just have to pay for them.

      Not all of them. There are free turn by turn navigation apps that are highly rated like Mapquest 4 Mobile.

  • Josh

    Guys, I am a what you call an “Android Fanboy” (Got an OG Droid and Droid X), but a couple days ago I was at my friends house and got a first-person look at his entertainment center and computer network. He has a 46″ LED with Apple TV, new Macbook Air, iPad, 2x iPhones, and Airplay adapters throughout his house. I was thoroughly impressed at what all this stuff could do and how it interfaced. Whether it was streaming video/music/movies or whatever to the apple TV from any device or sending music to the Airplay system, I thought it was pretty badass. I have A LOT more respect for Apple after seeing his setup. I’m not aware of any Android based system that can do anything so easily and reliably. I know you guys will flame away, but if the next gen of dual-core phones and the Xoom tablet don’t impress me and after seeing his system, I am considering jumping ship to Apple.

Not sure if you frequently go to websites like engadget and read the garbage that is published on there. Couple that with the fact that the iPhone 4 is blindly regarded as the best phone out there when it actually isn’t means people will naturally strongly fight back against the colossal Apple marketing machine.

    I have one question…can the Bionic play games hooked up to TV thru HDMI? I like the idea having to play
    game on TV using BIONIC as controller. Does anyone know that it can do that?

    • According to what I know, HDMI is only for viewing pictures and videos on T.V.

        there’s an app called RealHDMI that allows you to use the HDMI out for anything. The only catch is the phone’s screen freezes when you activate the HDMI out (at least it does on the DX) so that you have to kinda “guess” where you’re supposed to touch. I didn’t find it that difficult to work with, especially if you freeze the screen how you need it (with emulator controls or keyboard still visable). The phone overheats really quickly doing this though.

  • Android has 200k apps…not 100k..and that was announced at least 3 weeks ago…
    Android devices also have duel flash.
    Android rooted devices also last longer than they originally do [ if you use black notification bars, task killers etc]..so if bionic lasts 8 hours ..make it 10+ hours if rooted

  • VZ iPhone. It Begins.

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL, Kellex, you crack me up!!!! Man, you are so desperate and boy, you are reaching aren’t you?

    So now that exclusive contract with AT&T is over and now VZW is getting the currently existing iPhone makes this comparison legit huh? With devices that are yet to be out, most likely in summer when next gen iPhone comes out as well?

    Man, you sure are desperately reaching Kellex! but hey! this is your site after all, but doesn’t justify this pathetic attempt of making Androids look superior.

    All this proves is once again, trembling in fear of having the #1 smartphone in today’s industry, joining the VZW family among the Androids.

    You’re right about one thing, I am going to stay away from Feb. 10 release date cause I’m going to wait for the next lineup of phones that are coming out within the vicinity of June/July release, which includes these BIONIC, Thunderbolt, and iPhone 5…NOT iPhone 4.

    What a child you are to be comparing an existing phone with the upcoming phone? Actually, it’s more of a compliment to Apple considering you’re making a gesture that even existing iPhone can be compared to upcoming Androids.

    Why am I in here at Droid Life? Because I’m a proud existing owner of Droid, who happens to admire the iPhone just as much. Actually, a lot more since it perfectly fits my personal preference. So as I come in here to learn more about Android phones and so forth and see such poor attempt of discrediting the iPhone, I can’t help but to laugh and just shake my head side to side by the level of your maturity.

    I go to AppleInsider sites and other Apple forum sites just as much for same reason, to learn more about what’s going on with the iPhone, but never do I post or make such comments that bash on Android users! Btw, this excludes you Kellex cause I don’t ever recall you insulting or calling people names because they’re fan of the iPhone.

    You’re great in what you do, but not when it comes to the iPhone. Stick to what your good at please and make this comparison again when it actually counts, not because last year’s model that’s been a complete success on its own has now come on board with your precious little Androids to the big red.

      You people just don’t understand, do you? This comparison is for phones that are coming out around the same time this year to help potential buyers make an educated decision. It’s not i*hone bashing, it’s i*hone 4 bashing because there will be better options at that time. He’s trying to help the iSheep not waste their upgrade on the Fruit 4 and instead either use it on the superior droids that are coming out or wait till the Fruit 5 is released (which would probably be more on par with the phones available at Verizon at that time). He’s actually doing you iSheep a favor, so go get back on Lord Jobs iRod and STFU, already.

      • VZ iPhone. It Begins.

        you can STFU cause my point is that Thunderbolt and Bionic won’t be out anytime soon and will most likely be closer to iPhone 5 release you dumb ass!

          actually htc come out like earmy march and bionic early april so thats close and the iphone 5 wont be out till next year january so you make no sense buddy

            If you had half a brain and followed CES, you would of heard them confirm beginning of Q2 for the bionic and late Q1 for the Thunderbolt, which means early march for the Thunderbolt and early April for the Bionic. Facts. Now go play in traffic.

            All I gotta say is, everyone that made a pledge of NEVER owning an iPhone in the future and will forever be a loyal owner of Androids better stick to their words! You know who you are and if you ever end up with an iPhone, better keep your head down and continue walking that path of hall of shame for being nothing but a follower and spineless.

    Ok, comment away but here’s my problem. The iPhone 4 that’s being put out next month has been tested for a year now. They said it themselves. Why couldn’t they in that time install a new chip or processor to make it actually seem worthwhile or more interesting? Don’t tell me it’s not possible or doesn’t make sense because that’s a cop-out (sp). Apple has had plenty of time to prepare an exclusive or updated version of the iPhone 4 and they haven’t. Apple is relying on the sheepish nature of people and expecting them to jump on the wagon and say look I got one too now. And I could totally see Apple pulling a jerk move like either selling a 4G iPhone 5 in July. Or making an iPhone 5 exclusive to AT&T. Something like that. I spent some time with a i4 and I didn’t like it. The display is amazing and vibrant but I can’t stand the UI. It’s the same as my iPod 3 (again, I have used an i4) and ever since I touched an android phone, I haven’t looked back. Also without a case on the phone I felt like it was going to slip out of my hand and the sleek sharp edges didn’t really feel that great against my ear. The comparison charts do nothing for me. Each person needs to experience these devices themselves to see what they like. Simplicity or customization. There’s more differences yes but when it came down to it, that’s what I based my decision on and android truly blows away anything that apple does in the customization aspect. As for updates, Apple does maybe one major update a year. As an android user, I think it’s pretty selfish to complain when we get 2 or 3 in a year. And yes the waiting sucks but it is what it is folks. True yes, I want the update as quick as everyone else but I have a Fascinate with 2.1 and I’m happy as can be. If you get an i4, good for you. Enjoy it for me, will ya? Because there’s not a chance in the world that I’m giving up on android. I like to have my cake and eat it too.

    Just wanted to make a comment about some the remarks I have been reading. I am not a Iphone basher, but I will say this. I understand where people are coming from on “stop bashing i phone” but when you start bashing droids you are just insecure as you are claiming Droid heads to be. To kind of echo what Kellex said about spending time with iphone and the Ipod, it is not that these devices aren’t any good (if they were all bad we wouldn’t be discussing this) but Apple is too limited (closed) for a lot of us and me. This is the same reason I don’t owe a Mac. I am sure they as great as everyone think they are, but only true benefit I can see is for who only buy apple products. then they can sync seemlessly. No software or games I buy even run on apple, and I build my owe computers for less.

    Wow, that’s a monster battery in the Bionic, especially considering it weighs less than the TB. Unless HTC learns from the DInc rom’s out there I would have to assume it’ll have the worst battery life of any 4G phone released. I’ve seen both the stock EVO and DInc in action, not pretty.
    As for which is better does it really matter? Fanboys will buy it based on the logo and the rest of us will try the phones and buy what is best for us. However I have to say the prospect of buying an iPhone seems extraordinarily slim, more focusing on the two Androids.

  • Anonymous

    These comparisons are great, but in all fairness, the iPhone you are comparing against the next gen Android phones is not the iPhone that will be released in the timeframe that the Bionic is released.

    If the Thunderbolt is truly release in the same timeframe that the VZW iPhone is released, then it is a fair comparison…but, it certainly is not for the Bionic as that phone is nowhere near release. I would expect that Apple will have very competitive hardware to put up as competition against the premier Android devices this Summer.

    • Slacker0305

      But that phone probably wont be available for Verizon until this time next year.

            Both of your statements are spot on…but, not in the same context.

            It is true that you can’t accurately compare facts to rumors.
            It is also true that we can only compare what we have in the here and now.

            However, it is useless to make a comparison at all unless you have all of the information. If you truly believe that Apple won’t have Summer competition, then the posted comparison is valid.

            Steve Jobs said that hardware capabilities were ahead of the carriers’/network capabilities. With LTE getting ripe, do you really think that Apple won’t be all over it?

            You cannot compare these two phones to something that does not yet exist. When the i5 does come out to Verizon, then it can be compared to their other new releases and current phones. If you’re in the market for a new smartphone now, are you really going to buy something put out almost a year ago? I wouldn’t and most others wouldn’t either. They are going to be looking at the newest phones. And if they are in the market for an iphone only, they’d be smart to wait until the summer.

            There will always be something better coming. We all know this. This chart is comparing current releases from Verizon. It’s not useless. It’s helpful for those in the market for a new smartphone now.

            Current releases? When are the Thunderbolt and Bionic set to release?

            About a month to six weeks. Which is significantly before Jobs announces what features you won’t be getting on the i5.

            Hmmm. I have read that Bionic releases Q2. I would expect that Apple will, strategically, have an announcement by then.

    I currently own the OG and love it. I have it rooted and am running PEv4 with a gingerbread theme. I’m overclocked at 1.1Ghz and damn if it ain’t fast. More often than not I have the personal in person support of Tim-O-tato himself so its not like I don’t have access to anything. Let me just get this straight, I don’t have a fanboyistic view into the whole iphone vs android fight.

    I am personally switching to iphone for the best part about it: the app store. But Devidevver, android is open sourced and supports any android app no matter what it is! And? The problem is that argument itself. Is that all you can say? Unfortunately the iphones app store just has better apps overall. The fact that all of the apps go through the apple filter just guarantees consistency as opposed to the android market filled with fart apps, wallpaper apps, and japanese girl apps. Let’s just set this right, the android market is stagnant, really stagnant.

    Oh and saying the UI was designed for a toddler, bad argument. Its called approachability and that’s how you make the big bucks. If my 11 year old sister can own an understand an itouch, they’ve got her money just like that! P.S. she knows how to work my droid.

      Um, the dude in charge of Apple’s app store got his start making fart apps for the iPhone. I’m dead serious about this.

      So, 200,000 apps on Android vs. 300,000 apps on iOS. Is there really a tangible difference? Sorry that you don’t want to sound like a fanboy, but you do.

      I don’t think the comparison chart is fair. I am an avid Android fan and am NOT a fan of Apple i*anything. However, I agree with Joe. Once the 4G version of the i*hone comes out (most likely the i*hone 5 since there is no ingenuity when it comes to naming devices), there really is no comparison.
      i*hone is simply a downgrade – period and end of story.

      • Joker

        there is no lte iphone 5 already confirmed and verizon wont get iphone 5 until a year from february so whats your point do some research

        • Sp4rxx

          derr duh derr – you didn’t actually understand what i typed did you? The i*hone CURRENTLY is a downgrade because of it being old hardware. It still uses 3G. If TRUE comparisons to the CURRENT i*hone would be the available, you would compare Droids that are 3G-only now. Comparing the NEWEST technology to the OLDER technology is not a fair comparison. When (I say “when” because you know Apple will come out with a newer version) the i*hone reaches 4G speeds and hardware specs comparable to the new phones, then this chart would be an accurate comparison.

      The Swype row seems appropriate to me. The i*hon’es stock keyboard doesn’t have comparable swyping functionality, and Swype can not be easily installed if it is not preinstalled (unfortunately).

      For fans of Swype this may be an important distinction when determining what to buy.

            Trying to justify your walled garden by saying consumers are too stupid to be able to understand how to shop for app if the are made available anywhere else but a site you control and collect 30% is ridiculous and offensive (see j*bs comments)

            And Android still canโ€™t compete with apple sales? Multiple devices against just one? You may iSheep me Blah Blah Blah, but Android and Apple OS differ in its own ways. NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. But the ones that started it all was Apple. So Iโ€™d say, stop with the iCraps and write a letter to Steve Jobs thanking him for the amazing devices him and apple made. Because in the end, it makes GREAT competition for Google and with good competition comes better devices.

          • Dredamanfoo2

            While I agree that competition does make for better devices like the Bionics, Thunderbolts, and Atrixs of the world, I honestly believe that people are as attached to the fruit factory as they are because when the i*hone came out the only real choices were that and RIM products. There were no options. Now that android is up and dominating, (and I have charts to prove that we are indeed dominating both in sales and in popularity among both consumers AND developers) there are those who chose to use an i*hone who are stuck in the days when there were no choises. In their mind, there isn’t, never has been, and never will be anything better than the fruit factory. Oh, and nobody should thank steve j*bs for anything because Google had been working on their OS before the i*hone was even released. With or without the i*hone, Google would have released Android.

            If android is more popular for developers, then why do most of our apps lack so many important features that the iphone counterparts have. I’m thinking of facebook and scorecenter mostly. Can’t get push notifications on either. Pretty much the only things I like about the iphone are its pop-up notifications, and that it doesn’t include bloatware and stupid UI’s from phone manufacturers. Now, I realize google prides itself in being open, and it can’t really put its foot down to stop things like blur and sense. It just sucks that we have to deal with it.

          • try updating those apps. there also apps to remove bloatware and for it’s UI, it’s easily replaceable do a search on launchers and count the numbers and you’ll get what i mean

            I check the updates on my apps at least twice a day, it’s like a habit haha. As far as UI goes, I already use launcher pro, plus have my phone rooted and got rid of bloatware (at least I did at one point, it probably came back but I don’t care). I guess my point was I shouldn’t need to do all those things to get the real android experience. I’ve even put different roms on to try legit 2.2 on my X, but it just ends up too buggy. I love android, don’t get me wrong. I just want to see major apps improve and I’ll be happy as can be.

            The Facebook App for Android gets push notifications and has for a long long time.

          • Erdabbs

            If android is more popular for developers, then why do most of our apps lack so many important features that the iphone counterparts have. I’m thinking of facebook and scorecenter mostly. Can’t get push notifications on either. Pretty much the only things I like about the iphone are its pop-up notifications, and that it doesn’t include bloatware and stupid UI’s from phone manufacturers. Now, I realize google prides itself in being open, and it can’t really put its foot down to stop things like blur and sense. It just sucks that we have to deal with it.

            Dude, again your just so misinformed. Please do some research before posting. First I believe that Apple did, Yes, did set the trend, Everyone on the planet already knows this BUT, another OS has come out to rival Apple and put them down to sleep. and I am sure there will be better deveices out there form the competition between both compaies and I am sure there will be another powerhouse that will rival Google and Apple. And I totally agree that both technologies has it’s pros and cons. BUT you change you comments every other post and stop TROLLING TROLL lol And, please get your facts straight CNN, Forrester, and the rest of the free world all know that Android has out sold the iCrap.

            I agree. Apple did start it all with the Iphones. But google took the Iphone, improved it with many more features, and called it a Droid

            “But the ones that started it all was Apple” -THIS I do not agreed even though I own an iPhone. The lots of touch screen hardware for phones are patented by Motorola, the software portion of multi touch idea seems to have been seen first in Microsoft Surface, Apple even claim they are first in the something like swapping the screen. I used my Sony and it has a similar function with a dial years years back. I think they are just a more comprehensive collection of goodies at the right time. Most of the functions they have are everywhere but in bit and pieces with other competitors at the time. There are something really the first they have is none user changable battery. Right before I got my iPhone, I have a Blackjack II, for the purpose of a phone, I like a lot more than the iPhone but then why do I choose the iPhone at the time? a biggger screen than the Samsung nor the motoroa at the time. It’s not that they don’t have touch, they are jsut smaller for they did not expect people would not buy phone as expensive as a computer like nowaday ifans or the droid-fans.

            i don’t own an iphone but all of the hate and name calling towards the iphone is kind of putting me off. i can’t tell whether your trying to convince yourselves or everyone else that android is better. and i’m willing to bet that the majority of you own an ipod touch. if there was no iphone there would be no android. most of the stuff listed here is pointless and the average user doesn’t care in the least. side loading apps? almost everything goes to iphone first so no need and is really only good for stealing downloaded apk files (not something to brag about). how much memory do you need on a phone? especially when your apps are not saved there. widgets and live wallpapers are serious battery drains. even rooting sounds like it’s only good for making up for the lack of support for the OS by everyone involved in it besides google. android fans are starting to sound more and more like nazis or drunken sports fans.

            I don’t own an iPod anything. I’m also not an android fanboy either, merely just a tech hound. iOS is old tech and if the 5ht gen iPhone doesn’t change, it will continue to be old tech. Android was born before iOS.

            Android wouldn’t have progressed with out apple. Everyone is building off of what apple started. Thats not a bad thing its just a race to see who progresses faster now. It’s what our world is based on, competition.

            agreed…. but iOS is behind and if the 5th gen doesn’t make some major changes it will be left with only apple fanboys sitting at their computers waiting for their phones to sync with iTunes. I would LOVE to see apple come out with something different.

            One thing leads to another. If we lived in a world where everyone was happy with the same thing, there would only be one computer in the world, one TV, one couch, etc.With one thing there would never be competition and then there would never be as much pressure ton continue innovating. We should thank Apple for the iphone, because without their closed-policy and lack of customization, Android probably wouldn’t be what it is today. Thank you Apple no hating here simply gratitude for being the bridge to an opened sourced OS.

Lol At least at Verizon either fix it or bring me another brand new phone. And, if the first “Fanboy Genius” can’t fix your iCrap then you have to wait for a more senior “Genius” LMFAO How sad.

            I will have to say that Yes, Apple started it all and thier technology is good BUT, some of the parctices from “Steve O” is BS. It’s all about strapping you in to his buisiness model of making nmoney off you and his way only. Limit of Freedom. Verizon is and the other carriers do the same but not like “Steve O”

            So please take that iCrap phone stuff to you fan boy page elsewhere. Oh btw Don’t compare a D1 to your junkie iCrap we all know the D1 (As Godfather Like, that it is :)) Doesn’t have the specs anymore, but can still whoop Ass when rooted. Lets see your ICrap take on a EVO or the ugly Atrix, HTC Thunderbolt.

            not exactly a high point, but if the phone freezes up you can manually remove the battery. Comes in handy when experimenting with the phone’s settings.

Just because YOU can’t find an application for it, doesn’t mean someone else cant or wont want it.

            A lot of us have several batteries which we keep charged and change out daily. Not only does it give you a hard start once a day which keeps your phone running great but when you are on a lot of business calls the spare battery in your purse is a life saver.

            I carry 3 spare batteries because when I travel and use my Droid heavily, by the end of the 2-day journey when I may or may not have had an opportunity to re-charge more than one battery, I don’t want my business to be caught short. They’re inexpensive anyway, so there’s no point in not having at least one spare with you at all time.

            I carry an extra battery, fully charged, all the time. I can’t afford for my phone to die on me in the middle of a work day. So I always make sure I have a charged extra battery just in case. AND I’ve needed it A LOT!

      • I agree with Tyler… Yes apple makes a phone every year, and they are sure to be behind in specs 6months through. However, people fail to realize is that iphones are quality pieces and they work really well and have great battery life.

        A chart cannot tell you how pleasant something is to use. iPhones still have the smoothest touch interface of all phones. It didn’t even list the # of current aps available.

        • Anonymous

          I agree with Daniel, a bigger battery does not mean longer battery life, it still depends on the software. The chart is again bias towards the android phones. First of all, each category cannot be equally weighted, apps are going to be where you spend most of your time on your phone therefore the 300,000 is extremely important. Second, you knock the iphone for not having turn by turn built in, yet you give android face chat when (I don’t think) android has built in chat, so android should lost points on this too. While android may have larger cameras, iPhones pictures come out nicer. I am not going to say what my personal preference is on phones, I have both a droid X and an iphone, but I think that if we are going to compare we need a good comparison. The post is not to inform but rather to bash.

            What a joke. Have you ever heard of the point of diminishing returns? Please tell me what you would do with 50 million dollars that you could not do with 30 million dollars? What apps do you use on an iPhone that do not exist on Android? Maybe 5. And I could pull 5 apps that exist on Android that do not exist on the iPhone.

            Turn by turn is something Android has been enjoying for over a year now. Android 2.3 has video chat built in. Stop calling video calling face time. That is a marketing term. Like the word Droid.

            The iPhone has a great 5MP camera on it. It say it is better than Android cameras is meaningless. It is better than all 5MP cameras on Android phones but the EPIC 4G and Droid X both have better cameras than the iPhone.

            The iPhone is a great phone. It always has been. Thing is, this is not 2008 anymore. There is competition and choices that show up the iPhone for the simple fact that they are released more than once a year. There are Android choices that are only a few weeks old and not 10 months old.

            Then why exactly do you care how many cores you have, generally the biggest performance gains are going to be seen in gaming. While there are a couple of good android games, there are far more in the app store. If you would read my post, you would see that I said face CHAT, not facetime. I guess I could have said look in to the camera in your phone while another person on another phone looks into their camera, the two video streams are broadcast to each other so they can talk live and see each others faces, but face chat seemed simpler. Look at iphone photos vs droid x photos (and remember I had a droid x), iPhone is far superior.

            Finally, who cares if the iPhone only comes out once every year, unless your upgrade cycle is every few weeks, then you will not get the really cool new handsets anyways.

          • Anonymous

            might ought to wipe the smudge marks off your droid x then, b/c I also have both an iphone4 and a droid X and the DX takes as good or better pictures. It has better macro, better panorama, and 8MP Widescreen resolution. Maybe you’re telling me the pictures look better on your RETINA display? Because the DX pictures look a lot better when I’ve posted them on the web or when I’m looking at them in HiDef on my flatscreen via HDMI out that the iphone doesn’t support?

          • Anonymous

            Sure there is a point of dimishing return when it comes to app number. The majority of the apps on all platforms are worthless. That being said iPhone has indisbutably the best apps even ignoring size and their stupid curation policies. I’d still count the App Store as a positive.

            And 2.3 doesn’t have video chat built in. You may be thinking of 3.0. 2.3 has SIP built in which is nice (although from what I hear it might not be that great on 3G)

            And the DROID X and Epic 4G do not have better cameras than the iPhone 4 in anything that possibly specs (except in MP size). In every review I’ve seen at best the cameras are equal in quality, but for most of the reviews I’ve seen the iPhone camera is the best non Nokia smartphone camera.

        While the iPhone has a smaller battery, it is far more efficient, and the HTC ThunderBolt has a super-LCD display, which is also very efficient. Both are very comparable, but i think the retina display combined with the iPhone battery is more efficient

            hey I gotta defend iPhone cause all you Android fan boys that bash on iPhone owners, users and can’t manage to coexist with each other.

            If I went on iphone forum sites and someone was being a jackass about their ownership of iPhone and cutting down on Android users, I would be saying the same thing.

            In addition, I don’t have to agree with everything that Kellex posts on this site and I will voice my opinion and say he is being childish when he makes such ridiculous comparison where we all know in the back of our minds what the real intention is behind this post in the first place. You can try and sugarcoat this post as being an innocent post, but when I break it down as I have on my original post, we all know this is nothing but a big taunt and child play.

            Let me repeat myself one last time cause it seems that most of the Android fans refuse to indulge on what my point is, all because of their biased feelings.

            Fact:

            Thunderbolt: possible street release date from what I’ve read seems to range from Jan. to March, or maybe April or May. Again, no solid confirmation date on its release.

            Bionic: possible street release date is projected to sometime in summer. maybe in may, june, july.

            iPhone 4: Released in summer of 2010. Available on VZW Feb. 10, 2011 (No mention of Thunderbolt or Bionic being released in this time of month)

            Apple’s annual consistent release on iOS updates/Hardware: June/July, which means next generation iPhone. Specs for the next gen iPhone? Currently developers are working on iOS 4.3 beta, which will come with the next iPad and iPhone so here’s a glimpse of some of the updates Apple is working on.

            Until 3 of these devices (Thunderbolt, Bionic, and iPhone 5) actually hit the public release date (ranging from possibly March – July) of being available to everyone, let’s not make any premature assumptions because that’s exactly what this is and sad sad attempt in having newcomers stir away from the iPhone.

          • VZ iPhone. It Begins.
          • You seriously need to stop trolling. You need to realize that we would not be bashing on the i*hone if you weren’t going around constantly trolling about it. You have a droid. Cool. This is obviously a android (more spificly droid) geared website and you seem to not like droids so LEAVE! You should be thankful that kellex hasn’t banned your IP yet

          • DBK

            Not away from the i*hone in general, just from the i*hone 4 since there are better phones coming out (e.g. i*hone 5). You and your kind are too entrenched in your “i*phone is bestest” mentality and are not willing to understand that.

            Let me straighten out your facts:

            Thunderbolt: early Q2 (early March)

            Bionic: Mid Q2 (early April)

            i*hone 4: Feb 10

            i*hone 5: possibly in summer

            And you fault us for making premature assumptions yet that is all you have been doing.

            GTFO already.

          • VZ iPhone. It Begins.

            if you don’t like it you can GTFO of my way. I don’t know how many times I have to say this, but until there’s a solid concrete, official release date of these phones, STFU already.

            I can claim to own anything i want on the internet. btw i own a private jet, and the thing gets great gas mileage! as far as anybody is concerned your trying to pull a B!tch move by claiming that you own one of the devices just so you think you have a right to speak on one of these forums and hoping that your opinion will be validated. NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR THIS GARBAGE this isn’t “IPHONE-LIFE.com”

          • And what is it I’m supposed to learn how to read? The fact the the iPhone is iteration 4 which is current on both providers? The fact the graphic only compares basic things and not actual specifics? Or the fact your psychic? Or maybe you know that the iPhone will magically be labeled iPhone4.5 for verizon?

        Yah I know right. Not only that but many of the categories on that chart are things that no one cares about. iPhone gets an X for Swype? Why can’t we apply the same for iPhone and give Android an X for each iPhone app that Android doesn’t have. Peggle, Plants vs Zombies, I Am T-Pain, iMovie, Game Center, etc. The fact that a phone from last year already matches phones that haven’t come out yet is proof that the iPhone is a superior product.

        • Dailynews252

          absolutely!

        • Michael

          Couldn’t agree more.

        • DBK

          If you bothered to give the chart a once over and actually made an attempt to understand it and the reasoning behind it, then you would know that the Fruit 4 not only doesn’t match the other phones coming out with it, but that it is seriously behind. The point of the chart was to dissuade iSheeps from being to hasty about going to the Fruit 4 and to wait for the Fruit 5. If you are too closed minded, or iBrainwashed, to see that than you don’t belong on this site or anywhere near it. Now please GTFO.

        • EC8CH

          Hmmm… I guess if you find I Am T-Pain as productive and useful as Swype you have proven your level of idiocy and are entitled to own an i*hone.

          Also… Swype isn’t simply an app that is or is not available on a certain platform. It is only officially being made available if it is preinstalled onto a device.

        Especially since the Evo is pretty much the same thing as the thunderbolt and has been out for as long as the iPhone right?? And better since it’s launch day, and that’s not just according to me. I think I recall Evo winning the prize fight, dog fight and most other showdowns it was in with iPhone……..BOOM, Roasted!

    • VZ iPhone. It Begins.

      Until Kellex knows how to make real comparison, us iPhone fans will always be around to defend it! Androids won’t even exist today if it wasn’t for the iPhone, yet all you so called Android fan boys are too arrogant to admit it, but hey, it is what it is. Deal with it and start trembling, cause it’s just a beginning now that it has surfaced to the big red.

        Actually, Android was being developed as early as 2005. Long before fapple ever announced their toy phone. Actually, even long before they denied straight up that they were going to make a phone.

        On top of that, you could argue that the i*hone wouldn’t be around if it weren’t for winmo, and we all know how worthless that OS is.

      Really? hmmm, then why would Droid-Life keep posting info about the iPhone if this is in fact an “Android Site” You seem to be the one thatโ€™s “silly” here. I will post in the topics that includes the *iPhone* if you donโ€™t want to take part then stay out of it. Dude these are only phones, I like both OSโ€™s but to cry and B*tch about only ONE OS is plane ridicules.

    • chris

      NO!!! please don’t discourage apple fans from coming to this site and attempting to bash droids. we all need some humor while on droid life. and watching apple fans act stupid on here is enough humor since they will lose everytime.

      Droid = FAIL
      iPhone = win

  • It’s difficult to measure, but my fear is that the 4G phones are going to be battery hogs.

    • Anonymous

      This is not meant to be sarcastic, what makes you think they will be?

    • guest

      The Bionic, at least, should actually be pretty decent on battery life because of the dual-core processor. It can run 2 processors at a lower frequency than 1 processor would have to run at in order to do the same thing.

      I run my X at 1.35ghz so a bionic at stock will probably get better battery life than my phone does now lol

    • from what I have heard 4G drains the EVO battery, but since then the developers, phone manufactures and so forth should have adjusted.

    Anybody lucky enough to know concretely when Vz /Htc is launching their device?

      We don’t know that. Only thing we know is an estimated time of end of Feb or early March.

        Thanks for the response. It feels like the leaks that we normally read all over, have dried up. An everything is iphone related. Before the iphone supporters become upset, I’m happy for you. I’m just missing reading more info on pending Android phones

    As always thanks for putting this together.

  • Kaboyer66

    I have to ask a question. I know this is a Droid site, and you are Droid biased but have you ever spent any amount of time with an iPhone, especially the iPhone 4? I said iPhone, not i*hone. Bear in mind, I have owned the OG, Ally, Incredible, Fascinate and the X. But, how much time have you spent with an iPhone??

    • Anonymous

      Enough time to know that it’s not for me. And to add to that, I bought an iPod Touch like 2 years ago before I even owned an Android phone and within about an hour, was bored to death with it. What draws me to Android, is the fact that it runs like a computer, not like an app jukebox.

        Well said. To me iOS devices feel like nothing but an iTunes portal. The entire experience is designed to simplify iTunes purchases. If your the kind of person that has spent hundreds or thousands of dollars on their iPod music/video library (and there is nothing wrong with that if you are) then iOS devices make complete sense. If your NOT that person then they make very little sense IMO.

        For serious. I don’t get all the love for iOS. It’s my freakin’ app drawer, only not as cool! (I have the 3D one.)

          your comment sounds a little sheepish also buddy.

    • I have a girlfriend, and 2 roommates with iPhone Phors. Where do I begin. To me it makes sense for my roommates to have them since I believe the iPhone was indeed designed for use by a toddler and in fact, my roommates clean up after themselves like my 3 year old nephew. /insert funny

      Don’t ask me about the fights I get into with the girlfriend. But you can’t have an intelligent argument with a 14 year old girl from Guam.

    • I have. It doesnt suck, but I found that the “intuitive” interface of the iPhone is overrated. It still lacks things I use a lot (widgets, live wallpapers). I dont like that I dont have an actual “desktop”. While I rarely use flash, when I DO need it I definitely miss it (I remembered that from when I had 2.1 on my Droid)…and flash is not always games and movies, some websites use it as an interface. Oh yeah, and the lack of a notification bar was something I missed a LOT.

      If I did not own an Android, I would own an iPhone. They are better than everything out there…except Android.

        My wife picked up a friend’s iPad, and after browsing a bit on the intertubes, she said, “where’s the back button?” ๐Ÿ˜€ “Intuitive” my foot.

        For the record, my wife is not technical by any stretch of the imagination. Her Sean Connery Droid would probably still be on 2.1 if I wasn’t married to her.

      I have spent hours upon hours playing with my neighbors iphones at our weekly get togethers just to make sure im not crazy and my imagination hasnt got the best of me with Android. The times when their phones aren’t in the shop, I have done numerous tests between them and my OG and DX and it hasn’t swayed me a bit. My neighbor is a Marine and has been given an OG droid as a government phone and prefers it over his iphone also but is stuck in a contract. From the bland OS that their three year old plays with to the magical new features like a camera flash and picture messaging last year…im not interested.
