IPhone can't stand on its own! And you need the WiFis for videochat. And my battery is replaceable. Memory too.

No one mentioned flash surprisingly. I always tell a friend to go on YouTube and they hit the app. Then I show them the actual site. Jealously then hits.

And the iPhone is a great multimedia device, not really a great phone

Re: Unique android apps/features (vs iphone)

Android is better, especially the Evo, because to execute a soft reset, jam the volume down key in and press the on/off button on the right. Dang thing reset 5 times last night before it was noted the volume down key was jammed in. Excellent feature!

Re: Unique android apps/features (vs iphone)

Android is open source, hackable, customizable, powerful, and generally kicks ass in every arena.

Plus you don't look like a hipster tool using an Android phone.

Re: Unique android apps/features (vs iphone)

iPhone users prefer to smell like women while Android users prefer to smell like men. Got to say that I do prefer to smell like a man since I am one.

DigitalOne - iPhone users smell like girls and eat chicken

Re: Unique android apps/features (vs iphone)

I had the hardest time programming my number into a friend's Iphone. Yet every other phone I pick up is so simple....

Re: Unique android apps/features (vs iphone)

My recent conversation with my friend who thinks his iPhone is the best phone in the world (and actually works for Apple)

My questions-

Is your iPhone screen this large?
Do you have an 8mp camera?
Do you have HDMI out?
Do you have a 1ghz cpu?
Can you overclock your cpu to 1.2ghz?
Do you have 1gig of memory?
Do you have a replaceable battery?
Do you have Dual flash for your camera and camcorder?
Do you have removable media cards?
Do you have 5 point multi-touch?
Do you get 60fps?
Can you play flash?
Do you have live wallpaper?
Do you have customizable home screens?
Do you have widgets?
Can you download music for free?
Do you have Google Turn-by-Turn Nav with voice prompts?
Can you send emails, sms, etc with nothing more than your voice?
Can you download apps from other sources?
Can you video chat while in the passenger seat of someones car away from wifi?
Do you have the same 9mb download speed I have on 4g?
Do you have a wireless access point?
Do you have an unlimited plan for $69?
Can you do anything without having to have iTunes installed?
Can you root your phone without the worry of Apple bricking it?


His answer to everything was "No"

I then asked him-

Name one thing that your iPhone can do that my EVO can't do or can't do better?

His answer was "I don't know" (remember, this is an Apple employee)

I then asked him-

Why do you have an iPhone then?


No answer.... Just a dumb blank stare as he started to realize that maybe he really didn't have the greatest phone in the world.

I told him "It's alright... when you go back to work Monday and drink some more of that cool-aid... You will once again have the Greatest Phone in the World!"

Re: Unique android apps/features (vs iphone)

Hilarious!

As far as adding to the list of what Android has/does better than the iPhone, I must say the notification system. I think its superior to a popup interrupting whatever screen you are on, I like the way they stay tucked away in the taskbar until you want to address each individual notification at which point you can do very quickly.
