well most discussion boards out there talk about opinions, not facts. Because if you ask me the R1 is a better bike than the gixxer.

if it was a stock iphone i would say yes. the JB iphone idknoooooo. My friend has the non sprint windows htc one (cant recall if its tmobi or verizon). It looks nice with the HD screen but i didnt like the operating system. Maybe after a week with it i would have a change of heart. The new iphone drops sometime june july. I've heard the sprint htc will be better than the others. my att contract is up in sept. Then i will choose if i am gonna upgrade to Iphone 4g or htc evo. Droid is out for me.

Only if what you want is a 4G smartphone running on the Android platform running on the Verizon network.

If those are your criteria, then yes. It does.

Define the "hands down winning criteria" and we can answer your question

The iPhone has been out for years and it's no surprise that people are still trying to compare it to newly released phones.

Get over it. Every phone is different and once you know what you need/want from a phone is when you'll easily be able to understand which phone is the best choice for you.

So its locked that the next iphone is guaranteed to have 4g? (i dont believe in apple so i dont keep up on it that much like im sure some of yall do)

Its on Tmobile, the HD2, and its the soon to be outdated windows 6.5 , and yeh the new EVO will be Droid. But to me: Google > Apple

The EVO is going to be running to sprint

Um, somebody give me the stamped (certified) features of the June release iphone, and i can tell u why the EVO is better. The info I have is what is certified to be released next month.

I thought that Apple is only making an announcement in June/July? Anyways, to answer, I'm sticking to my 3GS, although the HTC EVO is nice(on paper at least)

Im just trying to help some people out.
The ones who have been brainwashed by apple. Just letting them know there are other phones to suit their needs.

Just innocent discussion here bro, no need to get thongs all tied up in a bunch.

I don't know where you think iPhone owners are 'brainwashed' or why you feel compelled at convincing people that there are other phones out there which are better (based solely off your opinion) for them.

Do you need convincing yourself? It sounds like you don't want to buy the EVO unless you have a crowd of people praising it over an iPhone, why else would you create this thread on the basis you just gave me?

Regardless of what the specs are of the upcoming iPhone I can assure you that many people will purchase it purely due to popularity, ease of use, and the large backbone structure that Apple has grown behind all of their products.

I am by no means trying to convince anyone to buy an iPhone or proclaim why certain iPhone features are better compared to that of a Droid phone. Frankly I'm not here to do someones 'dirty work' and if someone is willing to spend the time to own/operate/pay for a cell phone then they are certainly capable of researching what they need out of it.

As a note, NO phone is 4G, considering the final spec isn't even done yet, what sprint calls 4g, is a transition protocol, similar to the edge protocol between 2g and 3g.

As for which phone is superior, people are correct, it's opinion, but the key differentiation is the interface, and ease of use...in that respect, it's well regarded that the iPhone wins.

It's also telling that after now 3 years of iPhone, each new smartphone is wondered to be the iPhone killer...and it hasn't happened yet. Someone said it a year or two ago, apple has a good 1-2 YEAR head start in perfecting it's interface, OS, app availability and market, and that's effectively insurmountable.

I dont understand what you mean.

When the EVO phone is released in June, it will definately be 4g(as well as 3G). No if ands or buts about it.

OK what exactly is an iphone killer? Because theres several other phones that are better than the iphone.

And did a scientist declare the iphone to be the best phone out or something? Not sure what you're basing it off of, sales or something? Because im sure theres way more HOnda accords sold out here than a $300,000 Phantom. DOesnt mean the accord is better than it because it outsold it..........

And amazing how some folks think only Apple can make a easy to use phone, I mean really....
