    He arguments are really just dumb. Anyone that uses there phone while driving, should have their driving license permanently revoked.

    As for the rest, it is personal preferences. If you want a smaller phone, get a smaller phone. If you want high resolution, get a phone with higher resolution. If you want a phone that will run what ever you want, don't get an apple.

    I am pretty sure the driving was a joke..

    So what you are saying in your last statement is get a smaller phone if you want it smaller and a diff phone for a higher resolution? Isn't that what the iPhone provides, BOTH?

    By running whatever you want what do you mean?

    Well, lets say that I have a group of people I want to create an app for. Now if they have android, it is a pretty simple and easy program. Just create the app and have them run it.

    If you own apple, you either need to jail break ALL of the phones or you need to get apples approval.

    If you want to play a flash game online, good luck with the iphone. If you want to watch a youtube show, good luck.

    You can only run apple approved apps on the iphone, with out jail breaking. I can run any app only phone, just as it is.

    You want to remain in the kiddie pool and be fed what they give you, go with apple. If you want to do what ever you want, including custom roms, you just can not do it with apple.

    Anyone who uses a phone while driving should go to jail. Tristan is an idiot for ever considering using a phone while driving.

    There are also a number of android phones that can be for a large type of people. A phone for grandparents, kids, teens, moms and dads.

    Like HTC said "You don't need to get a phone, you need a phone that gets you"

    iPhone only has one type of phone, and you can't even customize it well.

    I think you're the only Android user I know that has that mentality.

    iPhone has a number of accessories I tell you that :D

    Where is the proof of this? Oh, and it might also be because that where it is free on the Android Market, you have to pay for it on the iPhone, and if you want to use it on other devices, you have to pay again.

    The iPhone 4S is actually one year behind all the other phones.

    Siri does give more of a personal feel to it. But Google still has more features. Personally I don't really care for voice command.

    The thing with Apple is that they blantantly copy something, yet they still tell people its new like the new antenna of the iPhone 4S

    Why would you stand in line for a phone anyways? You just wasted time and money. I think waiting in line for buying and expensive product is just stupid.

    Apple used to be a phone for social status. But not today. Almost everyone has an iPhone, so people really don't care about it.

    Bottom line, like you said it is user preference.

    If a person wants a phone, you should be able to help him in what he currently needs. Not all people need "to keep up with the Jones' " for the latest. It will be a losing battle.

    Majority of websites that are flash oriented will run on iPhones because of the way Adobe has been integrating html 5 into its flash programs. They simultaneously export now :) Youtube was a problem when the phone first came out, not anymore, google has adjusted.

    I guess you win with the flash games.. but how many of those do you play online and how many of them work properly without a mouse? Even flash websites require a mouse to work properly with phones touch screens. Not to mention flash websites load times on phones is ridiculous and the slow down is not acceptable.

    Now custom roms etc, that is usually people trying to add features to the phone that don't exist or upgrade to an OS that hasn't released yet because the phones are fragmented, so one could say jailbreaking is quite the same idea, adding features the phone doesn't have.
