Droid vs iPhone

First, let’s discuss style. I think we can all agree that the Android is sort of a geeky man phone and the iPhone belongs in the pockets of the hipsteriest hipsters you know.

Round One: …Um…. Draw. I guess…

Let’s talk about accessibility — by which I mean: how open is it?

You know what, I don’t really know which is the winner in that situation either. On the one hand, you have the Android system and app market being upheld as more “open” (though you still have to root and ROM your phone in order to install your own systems on it, but whatever). On the other hand, you (theoretically) have the iPhone’s “we won’t put crap on our market” policy, which is good (in theory).

So I guess that’s like, half a point each? Let’s call it half a point each.

ROUND TWO: .5 vs .5

And now it’s… networks. Verizon & AT&T. Sprint vs. AT&T. ANYONE REALLY. Vs. A. T. And T.

I don’t want this to become a network showdown, since it’s the ANDROID AND iPHONE SMACKDOWN, but we have to say it:

Verizon (and whatever) is flat out better than AT&T.

Android is also on other providers, so if you hate Verizon? THAT’S OKAY.

Round Three: Android. Sort of. It’s more a win for Verizon though.

(Um. Uh.)

You know what?

You know what, guys?

They’re SMARTPHONES. They’re NOT ALL THAT different. You can get your e-mail on them and send texts and make phone calls — and at the end of the day, they essentially do the same shit.

So let’s just hug it out, okay?

  1. Does lose mobile street cred by calling all Android phones a Droid as thats just the brand name for Verizon’s line of Android phones…but get what you mean ;)

  2. Hey, Michael!

    I caught that at some point too — I did it because I have a Droid and it was sitting right in front of me, so that’s what I drew. And that’s just what I think of. Totally true though, technically a bloop!
