ios or android?
 
i'm assuming a fair amount of members are into technology, so i pose you with this question. should i keep the droid razr i got last sunday or return it and get an iphone 4s?

i got the razr because i would have had to wait 2 weeks for the iphones to come back in stock, so i can go back this weekend and get one and return the android or should i keep it?

i use a mac so i thought icloud woud be nice, but i've been backing up all my files to google the last couple weeks and it's just as good with the exception that it's not all in one place.

the one problem with the razr is battery life- it sucks on this phone. i'm barely averaging 12 hours with the data off 90% of the time. i was turned off of by the galaxy nexus since it's only getting about 6 hours. besides this one problem it's an awesome phone, nonetheless.

the camera isn't as good as the iphones, but it's good enough for me i guess. hdr capture would be nice though.

theres an extended battery i can get, but then i lose the kevlar backplate and my phone case won't fit anymore. another benefit to the droid is the nanocoating- when i was outside earlier it was snowing and it was nice using my phone and not having to worry about it getting damaged by the moisture.

so back to my original question, what should i do? you guys make the decision for me!

I myself am in the same dilemma. I can't decide between the 4s, ThunderBolt, or the Bionic. From what I've read the battery life on the 4s is still an issue so that might not solve your problem. If I had a Mac I'd prob get the 4s. How do you like the Android OS for being an MP3 player? I'd like to not carry an MP3 player and a phone as well and I think that might turn me to the 4S for those reasons.

return it and get the galaxy nexus or galaxy s2. Android is much more fun, you can customize it in so many different ways.

my friend has the bionic and it is a great phone, its the reason i let myself give android a try.

the stock android player was shit, i downloaded google music which is better. however, the organization is not as good as an ipods (for example, i have the "500 top alternative songs of all time" collection, and selecting it through the artist tab takes you to all 500 songs, versus just the ones by that artist on the ipod).

I'm getting a Rezound instead of the Galaxy Nexus. Plus, if you wouldn't have gotten the razr most Android phones you can simply get a spare battery and just swap it out when you drain the other one. I love android and won't use anything else. But, a spare battery is a must.

Just made the switch to the 4s lets just say Android can fucking blow me. Battery life is better, runs smoother, works with my Macbook, etc. etc. I view Android like I do a PC something I will never own again in my life.

What phone did you have?

my wife has an htc inspire and its fuckin awesome. killer camera, never freezes or crashes. and it was a hundred bucks!

the bad thing about andriod is that if you get a good phone the reason is pure luck.nothing else. many of my friends have horror stories about andriod and the andriod market. google actually doesn't do too bad considering they have to make an OS thats completely compatible to every hardware manufacturer that runs andriod which there are tons.

apple on the other hand always makes the device and the OS on everything they make and always have...well, except for some shitty clones years ago. so its much more compatible because they make the hardware and the software. im prob gonna get a 4S soon for that reason…

just my 2 cents…

There are top tier android phones, and their are cheap crappy android phones. Its easy to tell by the hardware which ones are going to be good and which ones you should stay away from.
