    I use Android Forums cause it was the one I saw first. I am interested to hear other people's replies. It seems this site had less people and traffic. Good or bad?

    I visit both on a daily basis, in addition to the T-Mobile G1 Forums.

    Is there overlap? What's the signal to noise ratio? Why do you like/dislike each?

    And if you had to pick just one...which would it be?

    Androidforums (hmm...I wonder why?)

    Phandroid. Ok, it's not a forum and it is under the same ownership as AF, but I have the RSS feed.

    I actually get the AndroidGuys feed as well. Generally it's repeat info. AG and Phandroid generally post the same info. Sometime AG does first and sometimes Phandroid does first.

    I subscribe to Phandroid's RSS too. Good point. Was just thinking of "forums" but news and info is another good thing to review.

    It is totally biased. I personally will account for that as I read the posts and results. I was curious about how people are moving through the android world.

    Honestly, I use them both. Since most others do not, I get a wider swath of information.

    I use xda developers (they is SUPER nerds there! They're working on tether apps and how to make the G1 toast hotdog buns!) and then I am here.
    I was banned from the AndroidCommunity for being a total pest.

    Primarily I use Google to search news on android and verizon and from there visit many different sites. The sites I visit frequently are google (various blogs), here, twitter, cnet, boy genius report, howard forums, xda developers, engadget, gizmodo, along with the occasional tech crunch and slash dot news. I haven't visited android community much.
