Battery: No, but why do you need to pull out the battery on an Android phone? Oh yeah, when you need to swap out a new battery after 4 hours (Thunderbolt) or to fix it after it's frozen up (most Android phones)

iTunes: Either love it or hate it, but it's a great easy way to get your media on your device or to legally acquire new content.

Jailbreaking: A two minute process and easily reversible so as to not void the warranty, I don't get what the complaint is there. If you had a warranty turned down because you jailbroke it, you are an idiot and simply didn't think. Has nobody ever rooted their Android phone before?

What features, specifically are subpar? The processor and memory? Perhaps, but iOS 5 is so much more efficient of an OS than Android that it really doesn't NEED the faster processor to be faster than a high-end Android- but engadget's recent benchmark tests prove this better than my words ever could.

As for the whole name business, it's not Apple's fault that assumptive people thought the 4 was a 4G capable phone. It was simply the fourth iPhone. As for the lack of 4G- It's not that Apple isn't capable of implementing 4G capability, it simply doesn't want to yet because they are proud of their battery life, which in my experience is better than any Android phone I've yet to see. We all know how LTE affects phone battery life (Thunderbolt). So yeah, it's a trade off. Do you want to suffer from crappier internet speeds or crappier battery life? Pick your poison.

As for Verizon and AT&T's expensive plans, it's available on Sprint as well, so again not sure where the validity of that argument is.

- From a person who's owned three Androids, a WebOS phone, a Crackberry and an iPhone.
