    Hey all,

    So, within the next two weeks, I have a phone upgrade. And, I've been debating between 3 phones:

    HTC Aria
    Samsung Captivate
    iPhone 4

    I can't switch from AT&T, unfortunately. However, I think I've really ground it down to the HTC Aria and Samsung Captivate. I just can't decide between the two of them. I love HTC Sense UI, and I've heard the the Aria is actually faster than expected. The Captivate has a bigger screen, clearer resolution, Swype, and a faster processor (although, like I said, I heard there really isn't much of a difference). I've never exactly used Android before, but I've played around with it and hear it's great. I'm just afraid I won't like the TouchWiz 3.0 interface, and I'm clueless on how to root it to HTC Sense UI, or if it will be stable for that matter.

    Help?

    I am admittedly biased in this regard... so take this however you like...
    But please, for the love of all that is precious on this planet, avoid the Samsung.

    @CricticalCritc: What's so bad about the Samsung phone?

    @LOTR: But, I thought AT&T blocked the third-party applications on it...? That and it's just an add on, not really something I'd always use. lol

    Eiiinh..... AT&T with Android phones.... EIIIINNHHH......

    Either way, you're gonna want to root the Aria or Captivate to get an un-gimped market and allow for installing of what you want. AT&T butches their Android phones to such an extent I almost want to say get the apple product... o_O

    Switch to Sprint or Verizon and enjoy Android in its full glory.

    The Captivate is, otherwise, the top of the line. Hint: its internals are actually superior to the iPhone 4's (the iPhone 4 uses a chip from Samsung, the same chip that's iterated in Android handsets as the Hummingbird, only it's more powerful).
