So still no response on what the Droid can do that the iPhone can't. The next iPhone for for sure have at least HSPA+ 14.4Mbs which is twice as fast as the current model. Tethering at 14.4Mbs is plenty for most applications.

If that's what the iPhone 5 will look like and the specs are barely better than the iPhone 4 I might as well get the iPhone 4... That design just looks plain ugly to be honest.

Additionally your argument about customization is centered around "live" wallpaper and widgets... that's it. Doesn't seem very convincing that your Droid can do SOOOO much more than the iPhone 4. I'd rather have a static wallpaper and have 50% more battery life and widgets are cool and all but again... a huge battery drain and most people I know including myself get bored with the widgets anyway b/c they're so limited in functionality and would rather use a full featured app for mail, RSS feeds, weather, or whatever the widget may be displaying.

I have widgets on my iPhone 4 plus Dreamboard and winterboard are awesome! Plus there are so many HD themes made for just the Retina display that will rock just About any android theme.
When I look through tweaks on Cydia I am so amazed at how many there are. More than anyone would need to install on 1 phone that's for sure. But there are some really cool ones like sbsettings,sbrotator,flashlight that uses my iPhone's bright LED light right from my lockscreen. Animated boot logos that u can pick from 100s if not 1000s of them.

That act of jailbreaking in and of itself does in no way affect battery life. All it does is gain root access. Battery life is affected when the CPU is accessed in some way. Background processes are the huge battery drain which jailbreaking does not create any. Mobile substrate add-ons also do not affect battery... they access RAM which does not take up additional CPU cycles. After a user jailbreaks it is a common misconception that battery life goes down but this is explained by the fact that you are constantly modding your phone, tweaking it, downloading apps and themes from Cydia and just generally on it more then you would be otherwise. If you jailbreak and then do not access Cydia for ANYTHING and just use your phone as you normally would your battery life is the same. After a few weeks of tweaking your phone habits go back to normal and so does your battery life. This is why EVERY SINGLE TIME a new firmware comes out your have 20 threads started about battery life and then after a month people realize it's not the battery life.. its the fact that they never put their phone down after a new jailbreak. Hacktivation and unlocking however is a different story. If you hacktivate and your phone does not have vald certificates your phone will try and download them all day thus accessing the CPU and draining battery. This is why SAM was written.

On a side note, I'm surprised that people are actually responding to you, considering it's pretty difficult to read your illiterate responses.Do I brag about which phone I have in this space?

Thats not "doing" something that is just customizing the homescreen which if you jailbreak your iphone you can "customize "it to your hearts content! I have seen INCREDIBLE customization on iphones that they do not even LOOK like iphones anymore! Just check out the mods on this site itself! BUT if you are new phone user, the iphone requires VERY little or no training just to use it. My wife has an iphone 4 and I have a 3GS ! I just prefer the "feel" of the 3gs

on the side note: it would be nice if apple allowed the n64 emulator the one that they have for android on the iphone that would be amazing

Apple really is holding back on specs when it comes about specs samsung galaxy s2 has better performance, it has flash, has widgets and stuff... I have an iPhone 4 and when I use a dreamboard or widgets my iPhone starts lagging and crashing alot...just like droid phones. I hope apple steps it up alot if not I'm going to get a samsung galaxy s2...

I currently own an iPhone 4 but 2 weeks ago I purchased the Samsung Infuse 4G. So after trying "Android" for a couple of days, I returned it, why you may ask? It sucked so bad that it just could keep up with my iPhone 4 in every aspect. I'm not an Apple fanboy, I just prefer better technology and what accommodates me better. This is the way I see it; Apple > Android, enough said.
Pshh.. Don't even get me started with the Android fanboys at Sprint on how their so called "4G" is faster than the 3G on AT&T's iPhone because Sprint's 4G is seriously a joke -__-
Anyone else agree with me?

IOS rules with simplicity. But, it's been essentially the same for 4 years. (I personally hate that part of it, I would love to see it evolve into something new.) But, for good reason. It works, flawlessly. It's easy to use and hugely popular.
I ran my iPhone over putting a snow machine on a trailer, and I got an Atrix.
Android to me, feels like a pile of **** 4 feet high. It's messy, and just generally not that great. I have a pile of icons in one folder, half of which I don't even use. Hell, what are half of them even for? The market is a disaster. It's like going into a wal-mart the week of christmas. There is **** everywhere!
But, it does have it's good things too. I love the camera features on my Atrix. I love the AI (I'm a nerd like that.) on my Atrix. I personally find the battery life on my phone better then my iPhone 4 was, much better actually. I strangely like Android for some reason.
But I'm still getting the next-gen iPhone.

I wonder if the new iPod touch is going to take the direction of a mini iPad..

idk, i hope thats not that case, especially cause the home button, that looks so terrible, i like the rounded one, it makes pressing the home button feel natural i guess
