Froyo has made that irrelevant. Apps2sd.

#5 is pretty sketchy, lol. I'm sure there will be a fix or an update, I'm still on Gingerbread.

Lol yeah. Last thing they were looking at doing as a possible fix was porting over the recovery from the nexus one. I can't wait to for them to fix it because there won't be an official version of ICS for the captivate.


For anyone else looking at the iphone vs android, check out the amoled screens on the android phones. They are the plasma screens of phones. The galaxy nexus has a contrast ratio of 100,000:1. That's over 100 times better than your typical lcd tv (dynamic contrast ratio doesn't count).

$199. Never judge apple products by their initial price, which was $499 I believe for the 4s.

The 3gs is free, and the 4 that I have is only $99. This all assumes a 2 year contract.

Slightly off topic, but it's no longer unlimited, AFAIK. I sit in a closest staring at monitors all night for 8 hours, so I stream a lot of netflix and pandora. I was above 11gb one month before I found out one of the wireless networks at work will work with netflix. Anyways I was apparently in the top 5% of data users in my region, got a couple texts warning me about it, and they severely limited my speeds. Apparently our area is usually around 10gb, although other regions can limit your unlimited data to around 4 or 5gb.

But just a couple weeks ago I got a message saying that data usage is now capped at 3gb for the unlimited. So now they crank down our speeds over 3gb, although hopefully we still avoid overage charges.

This times one million. I ---- with my car, motorcycle, indoor and outdoor household projects, etc. I want my phone to work perfectly when I'm in my bed, on the toilet, or out drunk texting. The iphone does that perfectly.

Just rooted and ROM'ed my HTC Incredible to run CM7. Oh, and I have (true) unlimited data from Verizon that I can keep until Verizon breaks its promise or I decide to opt into one of their data tiers.

I'm with Fae. Had a iPhone3GS, now have a SGS2 and it's a pile of junk in comparison.

TouchWiz is a treanwreck of a UI, all the other ROM's i've tried don't hold a candle to iOS, MIUI isn't bad but it's still not great.

iOS just works

I'd happily swap anyone an iPhone4 for my SGS2...

Yes, has for years. Double tap the home button brings up all apps that are running in the background.

That's all the apps that iOS has paused and saved state, right?

So I get an email whilst playing GTA3 on my i device. I swap to the mail app and read the mail, GTA3 gets put in a paused state.

Why is this an issue for you? Why does it matter if the app is running in the background or not, you've only 1 screen to view anything anyway?!?

Here's a good summary.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/19983...for_users.html

The kicker:

The bottom line is that, in its visual implementation, Apple's handling of multitasking is more approachable and elegant. Android's multitasking has the advantage of working with all apps, but the way it's implemented lacks grace and vision.
That's it in a nutshell. You guys want to drive the Camry of the phone world, that's cool. That's all I'm saying. I'd rather have a PC than a Mac, and I'd rather have an Android than an iPhone.

But the weird part to me is that the iPhone is like the Camry...if Camry drivers, rather than being generally uninterested in all things automotive and only wanted a driving appliance, somehow became militant in their belief that the Camry was the greatest car ever designed and that it was the best car for everyone's purposes.

I don't mind people driving Camry's...but I'd get pretty tired of Camry fanboys, if such a thing existed.

It's funny how many people complain about this who have never experienced it and have never had an iPhone.
