I dont understand why people are jumping on this phone like there is no tomorrow.

1) It is an ipod as a phone, i would never have that.

2) The difference between the 4 and the previous versions are the front facing camera (only wi-fi capable) and the single LED flash. The 3GS will have the iOS 4 so ...ya

3) People should know better, there is going to be a 4g, then 4gs, stop wasting your money when you know apple is holding out on the good stuff so you keep wasting your money whenever something new comes out.

4) Android does it BETTER, yes it does, EVERY SINGLE THING. i dont care for 100,000 and i doubt anyone else will be downloading that many either.

5) VGA front camera only can be used on wi-fi, rediculous. (well i guess...

This is just my thoughts on android, but the only thing holding android back is ease of use. I know it's a powerful platform, but when you're trying to teach someone how to use an android based phone vs how to use an iPhone, they're going to lean more towards an iPhone because it seems more user friendly.

That's why people jump on it. Plus it's a good quality phone, regardless if you feel like they're late on features.

That is true. Thats whats a strong point about Android for me, the fact that there is a lot to learn and so much you can do. But some people just want the ipod operating system because its easier to work with. Its preference when it comes down to it.

I think it's complex in a sense that there is a lot of tricks and shortcuts to be learned. But thats what I like about it.

Your post is comical!

1)Why would you want 2 separate devices when you can have 2 in 1?

2)The differences between the 4 and 3GS are extensive. Better processor. 512MB RAM vs 256MB RAM. Better screen. Additional camera (Facetime may be WiFi only ATM but the camera is there regardless). Much better camera (resolution and sensor). Better build. Slimmer. Better battery. Just to name just a few.

3)Of course there will be new hardware every year and each year there will be a decision to make, but the jump from 3GS to 4 is significant more so than 3G to 3GS. Will there be an LTE iPhone next year? Possibly. But I wouldn't bet on it.

4)Won't get involved in fanboy posturing. Each will swear by his own platform so that is not debatable.

I guess you haven't noticed but I was comparing to the Evo because of the fact its better than the iphone versions to come. Also I have an ipod and I would never want it as a phone. its Strictly for car use. You haven't seen the display either how would you know? Tests have shown the naked eye can't see the difference, and I'm not surprised because the OS's UI isn't very graphic riched.

Please learn to read....he clearly stated he was AT WWDC. My iPod is strictly for car use too...I have a dock that I slip it into so I can hear all my music. Oh, and guess what happens when I get a call? The music fades away and I can answer...talk...hang up...and the music comes back on. What a concept. I am very sorry you lost your job at NASA.

Read phonescoop's review. Apparently there are several things the iphone 4 is much better at than other Android phones. The self-facing camera can still take pics without wi-fi, so I don't really see what your point is.

ok so your entitled to your own opinion.... but acting like your opinion is king is just ignorance. But they do say ignorance is bliss. I'll just let the numbers do the talking and 600,000 phones in just pre-order in a few hours on the first day!! just shows your wrong. Laughing Cool

That just shows how desperate people are to jump on the bandwagon. To tell me that I'm wrong because 600k people do it is bullshit because that's ignorance. The fact is Evo is better is every way but 1. Resolution, sadly no difference there. The question is, what does the iPhone do that the Evo can't do better? I'm waiting for your list so make one and reply

I'm not going to make a list... the evo is an awesome phone ive used it allot since I work for sprint... But bottom line is I prefer an iphone not because I'm a fanboi not because I want to look cool because its the best phone on att i don't have att because of the iphone Ive been a customer for 6 years Ive had every iphone and will continue too until there phones are no longer good phones bottom line they must be doing something right if 600k preorder and i guarantee thousands of people are going to wait inline wens night and all Thursday to order one... i dont understand if you hate the iphone so much why come to the one area all about the iphone to talk ****??? maybe because you want one yourself but cant get one on your carrier.... pleas...

Getting one is not an issue for me, I could have signed with ATT instead of getting an upgrade and evo. Why would i? There is nothing that makes an iPhone more superior, therefore I would be wasting my money by receiving less experience out of my phone. Any ways, you couldn't even name one aspect of the iPhone that's better than the Evo. People need to appreciate better phones out there instead of following the trend

Hilarious, the close minded Android clone tells me to have any open mind. FYI I have a Mac, a PC, as well as Android and Apple phones. How's that for open mind?

Why would I cry to Apple dude? Are you delusional or just really stupid?

Iphone advantages over EVO. (according to phonescoop's review)

1) Battery life!!! (how long can you go between charges without turning all the features off)
2) Screen resolution
3) Camera- megapixels not as high, but takes pictures better in different light levels and much quicker.
3) HD video- records video better than any other hd capable phone
4) Gaming- reviewer stated it rivals PSP and Nintendo DS
5) Ease of use
6) Internet page loading- said its faster than any other smartphone. He also said he was surprised 3g could go that fast.
7) Faster wi-fi: Newest version of wi-fi
Cool Media- itunes/iphone combo better than anything else on the market
9) Touchscreen- Seamless. NO lag. Best touchscreen on the market.
10) Noise cancella...

When people trash talk about the iPhone 4 they need to understand the specs and power this phone has... first off, yes the evo is a great phone, the Droid incredible is a great phone, the Samsung instinct was a great phone, the HTC touch pro 2 and hd were great phones... but u wanna know what they all had in common?

What makes the iPhone better than every other phone.

1) Go into a electronics store and you will see an isle dedicated to Apple products, everyone else is in one little section most likely together.

2) How many car manufacturers have Evo connections, 0. There are cars with iPhone/iPod connections to control your iPhone/iPod from the steering wheel. No aftermarket products needed.

3) Android is a great OS, but to be honest if you don't but it from Google, no telling when the update will come out for your phone. The manufacturer may decide they want you to buy the new model and not release an update for your phone.

4) How many companies are advertising an App for Android, just wait 10 minutes there will be one for Apple.

I ha...

1) there is an end cap dedicated to BEATS by DR DRE headphones doesnt make that the best headphones ever. There is an isle dedicated to snacks too, does that mean you need to pick up up while youre standing in the line too? that just shows that you HAVE to pick up your accessories or else what are you thinking if you own an iphone. an isle dedicated to anything doesnt mean its the best and you know it.

2) you are right about the aftermarket accessories with car connections, i went through that problem because my pioneer navi isnt compatible with anything but ipod, however, I WILL NEVER WANT TO USE MY PHONE AS MY MP3 SOURCE. no flexibilty while im driving meaning, picking up calls, playing music, speaker phone, its a hassle when your phon...

1) What the isle symbolizes is better support and acceptance commercially than any other platform including BlackBerry. There are more websites and manufacturers supporting Apple than any other cellphone company. Also with the data port of the iPhone it makes it easy to create products that can sell over a period of time instead of constantly retooling.

2) There is one operating system Android that has to be modified by every company and for every device that company makes. This was the problem with Windows Mobile, HTC would pick and choose what model they were going to support, this year the Evo is supported, next year it might not be, and you cannot install just any flavor of Android, you have to install that models version.

@GeekBro...don't sweat mikedachump...wasted energy. ANY person who cannot grasp the concept of having a PHONE that you can put in a cradle (in your car), listen to ANY of the music you have on it.....AND...if the PHONE rings, the music is magically and mysteriously muted, you answer your call...HANDS FREE...then hang up and the music magically starts back up....

Lets just say that we should ALL be happy NASA fired this chump.
