    Default iPhone or Android..which do you prefer and why?

    Hi,

    What smart phone do you recommend based upon your experience running an online business...I'm thinking of replacing my internet phone as the costs would be similar but I would get more features.

    I like the ease of use of the iPhone, brilliant screen and long battery life but it doesn't have all the features of the Droid phones.

    Features I'd like..

    Ease of use
    Send and receive emails anywhere, anytime
    Take photos, videos (HD) anywhere, anytime.
    Mobile Hotspot (to use laptop on the go)
    Voice recorder
    Speaker phone
    Long battery life
    Memory card slot
    USB connectivity
    Touch screen
    Grace period (to check functionality)
    International reach
    Ability to automatically connect with Wi-Fi hot spots
    Ample storage space (pics, videos)
    Voice to text
    Different rings to differentiate customers from family members
    Application that switches off all unwanted programs running in background

    A smart phone costs $200-350 plus the data plan would cost $29.99/month since I'm already on a family plan (according to a Verizon sales person). Are these the true fees or do they add additional fees above 29.99/month?

    Feel free to recommend other useful features I haven't mentioned.


    Thank you.

    I've had both an android and an iPhone. After a few months I ended up sticking with the android and taking the iPhone back. Reasons 1) the iPhone could not sync with my Outlook calendar without uploading my entire calendar/contacts/tasks to iTunes and then downloading, which kept crashing my PC, and I didn't really want all that info uploaded to iTunes anyway. 2) the iPhone seems to be more for fun and games and social media, the android seems to be more for business. Yes, there are less apps for the 'droid but anything that is business-related seems to be available. 3) the coverage with the iPhone was miserable, my calls kept dropping even when I was right in the middle of town. I do not have that problem with the android phone.
    Hope that helps!

    I have the HTC Evo. It is freaking amazing. At first, I didn't think I would like the large screen of the Evo. Now I cannot imagine ever having a smaller phone. I have an iPod Touch too, which is basically the iPhone without the phone. I hate the smaller screen on there.

    Unless you are hooked on Apple products, I would go with Android. With Android you are not paying for the Apple name. You can get an even better phone for the same price or cheaper.

    Android is best as OS..

    hi
    the preference for android or iPhone purely depends upon the nature of work you intend to do on the phone but what me experience says after using both the phones is that iOS is much better as compared to an android
    reasons being
    1)speed of an iPhone remains same throughout the lifetime from the first day till its last day
    2)in any of the softwares used an iOS provides you more customisation options than an android could ever provide
    3)iPhone's battery life is much better than android because the apps on app store are much lighter than same apps on play store
    4)an iPhone's connectivity with wifi is faster and better and also it reaps better speed from modem than android
    5)for fun you could always boast in front of chicks with an iPhone than an android
    hope that helps
