My iPhone4's call quality was dying and I did not want to upgrade to Siri right when I knew iPhone5 was due in 3 months, but I couldn't wait that long. I bit the bullet and got the cheapest Android whose specs I could tolerate. I
Who has the bad apps? The Android Market or iTunes? I just switched to Android month ago after 5 years of iPhone. Did I jump ship just in time?
Today the 26 June 2012, I've been able to upgrade my HTC Evo 3D to ICS. I checked if there was any updates and upon the confirmation upgraded using my ADSL WIFI connection. The size is about 280MB, all went smoothly and seamlessly. After a couple of restarts, bingo, my phone was given a new lease of life. Certainly a big improvement and most welcomed one too, just perfect. Please note that mine is a non-contract carrier free phone and I live in Beirut Lebanon. So maybe you guys living in the region could start checking to see if your area is included. Cheers HTC and a big thumbs up.

R... moreto be honest, after being an iPhone user since 2009 I was impressed with apps up until the store was flooded with shoddy knock-offs and falsely misleading apps that didn't do a thing that they stated to do.
I work for a telco and I try to remain neutral to all handsets and companies but with Androids refudnable market and the broader optimization of the apps I fell in love with the market. Still happy with Apples iTunes store but not happy about misleading paid apps.
That's why prefer nexus over any Android phone. And pls Google with JP make your own phone not two version for one phone like Galaxy nexus one update by Google and other one update through Samsung!
To be completely honest iPhone has more useful apps than android and a lot of games as well. Rightfully so I own a HTC Vivid on At&t coming off of the iPhone 4S. And my user experience on the vivid was about 60% better than the 4S. Siri got old after a week and I found myself bored of the phone in less than 2 weeks. My vivid runs 4.0.3 and I can say the only thing I hate about ics is the fact that apps optimize before loadup leading to some slow boot times. I own a PS3 so I rarely play games on my phone and when I do want that mobile gaming I use my xoom for the larger screen real estate. Saying that I would never recommend android to someone new to smartphones, however if you want an experience closer to that of your desktop, easy file sharing, downloading of files without 3rd party apps, customization and overall control of the phone, easy battery removal and expanded storage android is definately a must have.

I hardly seen any FC in latest ICS. Actually never seen.
Also, plenty quality apps in Play Store now, most App Store developer is coming to Android now and don't forget plenty of great developer for Google previously.
I doubt you really own a Android phone, or you are really to dumb to use a real smartphone.

[deleted post]ohh really ? initially i had Black Note then i sold it brought white color since white looks more attractive and i found the same issues with both fone, so u mean to say all the phones have software issues. I am not an idiot like to use the phone while always software issues. thats say the quality of Androids.. Come on boss, grow up before simply complaining, im a user and complaining about the output im getting after using the mobile for 6 months.. Ive used iphone2g, and then 3gs and then 4 and i never found any such issues. Quality products shows quality always..! u cant deny the fact.

I'm a very unhappy iPad2 owner, all those stupid apps are there for people to activate a website when u can do it with a web browser and bookmarks, and they call it quality.
And all the dumb steps I need to go through connecting to my PC to do regular stuffs like coping and transferring.
Now, please tell me how is the play store different?
Name me some non-customizing quality apps which I need to have on an android phone.
AnonD-12162, 22 Jun 2012Mr. i have no reason to lie here , i have shifted from Iphone to S2 and to Note , give me ur e... moreIf u still have your iPhone, sell your S2 and Note, go back to app store, simple as that !!
Name me some of the very good apps that I can't do without for my iPad2, please...
I can't see what you see in that store filled with 90% of kid's stuffs.
The only good that my iPad2 is for surfing the webs.

What makes you different ? You all act like a little child!
I'm proud android smartphone owner since 2009, but I've never in my live tell how stupid or dump IPhone is, or those one who have it! Comeon, smartphones are for smart people.
Be more grown uo, and be careful whit your comments.
I haven't bought a phone with ICS 4.0 yet , and now the it is almost the time JB starts to release . Can't caught up with technology nowadays. Better use my old phone .
