iOS Versus Droid

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 02:00 AM

"The topic of smartphone operating systems can be as divisive as politics or the Mac vs. PC debate. (Just add snide comments about dropped calls.) We delved into our Teach Hunch About You (THAY) questions to figure out what we can learn about Android vs. iPhone users, and our friends at Column Five Media performed some of their infographic magic on the resulting data."

I know, I know, the graphic says Droid vs. iOS, but I am kind of biased the other way, which makes sense since iOS owners are 39% more likely to be high maintenance. At least according to this latest Teach Hunch survey. I prefer to think of it as leading the way, which also makes sense since iOS owners are 27% more likely to lead. I found this an interesting read, entertaining if nothing else.

Droid Versus iPhone 4, Does Size Matter to You?

I thought this was an interesting comparison of the sizes of the two devices. There are several more posted at Engadget. And David Pogue has a few things to say about the Droid X in this video.

Just Like an iPhone! Well, Not Quite...

"Now there's a nicely-documented fact that you can throw back in the face of that annoying friend of yours who got a Verizon Droid and who keeps saying 'It's just like an iPhone!'"

The photo shows examples of when they tried to draw straight lines, and as you can see the iPhone (far left) has the straightest lines of the four. Interesting that they relate this problem with quality of the screen and the way it processes commands, something I never really thought about until I read in the article the quote "quick keyboard use and light flicks on the screen really push the limits of the touch panel's ability to sense." It just brings home the reality of just how advanced the iPhone truly is. Not that this little detail would deter me from buying one of the other phones if I really had a problem with AT&T. I have a couple co-workers that have Droids and I like the form factor, however I'm quite happy with my iPhone and it's advantages (multi-touch for one). Always good to have competition though, just makes everyone better. Oh, you can read the test results here.
