[deleted post]Firstly, your best bet is actually going into a mobile phone store, use both phones and go for one that you feel comfortable with. Also, if you buy one and are not too happy with it, you can always return it and go for the other.
Yes both iPhone and Android OS are very good. Android is growing and is available in the HTC's you seem to like, the Apple OS is now 3 years old and so many Apps! I like the simplicity of the iPhone as I really dont feel the need for a confusing UI, that can ruin your phone experience. Also bear in mind that the iPhone has proven to be very succesful, despite what the minority of haters think.
If its a choice of Apps, a simple UI, but a very effective touchscreen smartphone, then the iPhone is a brilliant choice. If a choice of Apps plays second to the things such as a camera flash or flash on your browser, basically you want more detail, then have a look at the HTC.
I personally was indecisive before like yourself, didnt believe the iPhone was as good as it was due remarks made by haters, went for a highly spec Samsung phone and ended up disliking the phone. I then got the iPhone earlier this year and I am 100% happy!! I have downloaded so many Apps, can watch TV on my phone via the Apps and browser, have used the phone for different functionalities, basically I love it!

You can either have it officially locked by the network provider (which is what I did here in the UK, by o2) buy it unlocked or have it jailbroken, The iPhone uses the same size sim card as all other brands do so you will have no problems there.
Anonymous, 19 May 2010lol i work for a mobile company (can't say).... love ur comment "Those words you use are ... moreLOL A lot of us stick up for the iPhone as IMO, and for millions of other users im sure, its a great phone and too many haters come here time after time saying their brand is better. It appears that a lot of these bashers (im not saying you personally so you too dont get all defensive ha ha) are jealous or angry at Apple for no reason. I can only put this down to either them not having the iPhone or sheer crazyness!!! Why else keep coming back?
Now onto iPhone users. Its different if we ALL went around phone bashing in different forums. But thats only a handle of iPhone users, not all.
My friend, if the iphone was that bad, surely we would have returned it shortly after buying it? Most mobile phone companies offer a return period, as you should well know. And its popularity would have decreased as word of mouth IS the biggest form of advertising. Specs wise it cant match other phones (my previous phone outdid the iPhone in specs) but overall user experience is where the iPhone excels. Again millions of happy customers says it all. And Apple didnt exactly hold us by our throats forcing us to buy the iPhone, it was done by choice :)
The iPhone wont please everyone of course. There isnt a single mobile that will please everyone! In your opinion you may find the Nokia N900 as the best phone. From experience of using the N900, I didnt like it at all, regardless of its specs. But thats down to the individual user. But I wont go to Nokia and bash it!
Steve Jobs hasnt ripped me off. Id feel more ripped off buying a brand recommended by an iPhone hater and not getting the same user satisfaction as the iPhone :)
i am looking to buy this phon. i heard that it is locked one. if i go india i need to use the sim card in india. is it possible to use different sim cards like all other phones. please reply me. is worth for money or i will be a looser.
I'm having problems connecting my iphone 3gs with my laptop and other brand using bluetooth. It won't just connect even when the laptop is paired with it.Has anybody experienced this! i nd help

Out of 17 staff... only 1 is using the iphone... we all tried it... its pretty average, so we don't bother with it. I'm not dissing the product, don't get all defensive about it.....
Anyway, back to the "haters issue" i don't hate the phone. The followers is the problem... they (including yourself) get all defensive like you own part of the company lol. Apple is clearly ripping off all their loyal consumers. You guys pay premium price for a product which is clearly worth half. Steve jobs is laughing all the way to the bank, while you defend his over priced product.... peace ;)
well...i was a nokia fan and used nearly all their top order mobiles...recently i bot apple to give it a try...and am writing this jst cos i really got stunned by its perfomance...and the apps and graphics..thy cud have put a gud pixel camera and screen with better resolution...still once u use u cant complain abt this phone...am in luv with it...and for those all who's complaining...buy watever tech magazine and check watever site...u'll find iphone as best smartphone and highly recommended one...especially 3gs.
I had iphone 3g n i loved it bt nw im getting 3gs in a week n cant wait for that moment to come. iphone rocks

A majority of iPhone owners just want to talk about the phone here but if haters come here OF COURSE we will say how good the phone is. Why wouldnt we? Those words you use are clearly from someone who has never used an iPhone. Thats a typical iPhone hater trait.
Yeah you get a few that go into other brand forums saying that the iPhone is better, but they are just as bad the iPhone haters.
But back onto "Average Phone". Thats your opinion mate, if you actually use the phone rather than base it on others comments (hence the iDont comment) im sure you will see different.
Anyway Peace again :)

Its difficult to relate to an iPhone hater as they live in this imaginary world where Apple is the enemy. I mean hopefully one day they will wake up and realise that all this anger is just over a mobile phone. I have some hope for some of them.
like i sayed before.i dont hate the iphone.i hate its price.its very good phone.but for that price omg........
for that money i could buy a laptop and a better phone.
and for tha phone that i sayed its made of gold.its not just for io dont know what prince from i dont know where.in my country nokia 6700 gold(18k)its in the stores.at about 350-400 euro
to who hate iPhone....who cares...? every one has his/her own choice. unless you (haters) are providing us what fone you like.

I ain't debating about the phone :) iDont (sorry lol) really care about the capabilities of the product.... it's the iCrap (lol) coming from the followers.
My eyes are wide open my friend. You should of gone to specsavers :)

They twist facts, make up stories, and deny the obvious so they could justify themselves. It never affects iphone sales though. They're just being annoying. Best way to deal with them is to ignore them and report them to the moderator.

You know there will be iPhone owners. iPhone owners, like myself, clearly appreciate the phone. But amoungst the debates, comes the haters. People who dont like the fact we have an iPhone, therefore get angry and call us "iSheep". There is more hate than love here as the iPhone haters continue to come back time n time again.
Its an imaginary world for the iPhone haters. Its clear jealousy and anger on their part. Why else come back time after time after time.........???

This isnt a mobile phone war, its called debate over a handset. There is no such thing as iSheep. There is a thing called the iDont list, which brainwashes people into hating the iPhone. If you can somehow drift away from that list, you will open your eyes a bit more.
Peace to you as well :)
