lol i know..that's the point of the question.What i'm trying to figure out is what is one missin the other isn;t?I'll mess around with both next week to see what feels better (prob leaning toward the evo) but i need to know some of the apps/games one has that the other doesn't.I would a.ssume whenever somebody makes an app for the iphone somebody would make it for droid and the other way around.

basically i know i can get every app i would ever need with the iphone but i think i like the evo better.I don't want to get the evo and then not be able to get an app i want ot be able to use a site because they only have made it smooth on the iphone

Make sure ur phone software and firmware is up to date. Go to phone settings> System Upates> Firmware update/ HTC software update

Or make sure u have some sort of task manager and k!ll apps after you are done with them. Force close usually means too many things running at the same time so something has to close. Just a few steps we use in the store

In my opinion, the Evo 4G (and the Nexus 1, Droid Incredible, Motorola Droid) s**tS on the Fourth Generation iPhone.

I mean, I watched the video and this is what's new on the iPhone 4G:

1) It has glass on the front and back (who gives a f**k?)

2) It has an external antenna (who gives a f**k???)

3) It has a pretty screen (that's cool I guess but all of these smartphones have nice screens nowadays. Is the iPhone's going to be THAT much nicer that I really give a f**k. No.)

4) It has multi-tasking (but from I've heard, it's not even "real" multitasking)

5) It has a front facing camera (this is a cool feature for those who will actually use it).

6) It has a better battery (now THIS is a really good feature and definitely something to brag about, a.ssuming it lasts as long as they claim)

The iPhone still does not have real multitasking, doesn't have widgets, doesn't have the GUI capable of running widgets, doesn't have hotspot (tethering) connectivity out of the box, doesn't have the customizability of Android, it still isn't "open" (meaning, you can't video chat with non-iPhone users and you can't download non-market apps), AT&T still sucks, there's no HDMI out, there's no FREE turn-by-turn navigation (like with Android), of course, they don't have all of the Google integration, it doesn't support OTA updates, it doesn't allow PC-to-phone OTA updates/downloads, it only has a 3.5 screen, it still doesn't have a removable battery, there is no micro SD slot for upgradeable memory, it doesn't RUN ON A 4G NETWORK!!!!...shall I continue?

However, Apple is showing why they are really genious marketers. They have made a gorgeous phone and that's just about all they've done with the fourth generation iPhone. It's aesthetically appealing. That's it!!! And because of that, "hey, look at me" and "me too" motherf**kers will buy this s**t in droves.

By the way, if you think the iPhone is better because it has sold more, you really are dumb.

Apple fanboys (including sites like ZDNET) just DON'T have the ability to think objectively and it's really annoying.


Now, the improved battery life and front facing camera, those are noteworthy features. And, I'd even say multitasking is a noteworthy feature (if it wasn't a watered down Apple version of multitasking). EDIT: AND, I JUST FOUND OUT THAT THE VIDEO CHAT IS POSSIBLE ONLY ON WI-FI. HUGE FAIL. With Android, you can video chat via 3G, 4G, or WI-FI. So, I guess the most noteworthy new feature on the new iPhone is the improved battery. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Overall, the iPhone has always been an awesome device but they've been working on this fourth generation iPhone for how long and these are the only new features? And two of the three most noteworthy features (multitasking and video chat) are watered-down. Even with the newest iPhone iteration, there's still so much s**t that Android can do and Apple can't and that sucks.




Jason posted his WWDC iPhone 4 checklist today and now that we know all about the iPhone 4 I would have to say this checklist shows exactly why I am planning to skip this version of the iPhone and stick with my new Sprint HTC EVO 4G device. The HTC EVO 4G has everything on Jason’s list and more already up and running. It looks like the pace of Google has brought Android into the lead with Apple for innovation and excitement in the mobile space.

Looking at Jason’s list I would have to say that the most appealing features in the HTC EVO 4G over the iPhone 4 are the no limit multi-tasking, OTA updates, free navigation, Google Voice support, and WiFi mobile hotspot functionality. I would also add that Google leads the iPhone OS in the notifications system, multiple carrier support, customizable home screens, and removable battery. I do think Apple has a great OS though and think the long reported battery life, incredible display technology, better capacitive QWERTY keyboard performance, and better gaming support (6 axis motion looks slick) are compelling features of the new iPhone. As with any mobile phone, it is a personal preference that each of us has to make since one device doesn’t fit everyone’s needs and desires. I plan to stick with the HTC EVO 4G and cancel my Verizon Palm Pre Plus service soon.

I thought their Face Time app and functionality was a bit lame though with support only for iPhone 4 to iPhone 4 devices both connected over WiFi. With Fring you can call from your Android or Symbian phone to or from a regular computer running Skype and make these calls over the cellular or WiFi networks.

Point blank...the iphone will never...never run flash. Apple said they would never incorporate that into their mobile devices. Thus the iphone can't display every website out there. That's enough right there.

White HTC EVO 4G coming exclusively to Best Buy on July 11th, pre-orders start today

Jumpin' Jehosaphat! Just when you thought America's first 4G phone couldn't get any hotter, along comes this: a striking white version of the HTC EVO 4G (so much for that unavailable white iPhone 4, eh?). We've received confirmation that this here handset will be sold exclusively through Best Buy (as in, don't even bother heading to your local Sprint store), with the official launch date set for July 11th. We're told that Sprint will eventually gain access on August 8th, with other retailers snapping it up in September. If you somehow managed to hold off on snagging the existing black EVO 4G, you can get your pre-order in starting on June 18th -- yeah, today, Junior! We're a.ssuming the price will remain at $199.99 on a 2-year contract, but be sure to drop us a line if you wander in and find out otherwise.
