I just got an android Motorola Droid x. And I really Like it.


I got Several Emulators and AWESOME apps for it. There are so
many.

And Since Its Powered By Google. YOU GET FREE GPS with it threw Google Maps.

Not Sure about HTC droid phones Other Then i know the Motorola Normaly Has High End Battery's And will give you longer lasting life.

Yeah I noticed there were emulators on both, so I guess it can't be too bad either way I go, I guess it beats playing Sudoku and Snakes on my current phone.

As previously said, Android (in my opinion, at least) surpasses iOS in terms of everything but games, excluding emulators. The creator of the emulators for iOS hasn't updated them to work well with iOS4, while Android's emulators are as good, if not better than, ones on a computer.

Battery wise, neither are too great, but I'd say iPhone wins. But there are car chargers for both, so no matter really. Display wise, obviously the iPhone's Retina Display wins, but I can't see Android's screens not getting better in the near future.

If you are going to get an Android, don't get a cheap one. Fragmentation is an issue, but mainly on the lower to middle end handsets. Rumor has it the Nexus S (as it's currently called) will launch soon enough, and that'd be the phone to get when it does; it'll be Google's development phone, meaning that it gets all the latest updates the quickest, it will run the smoothest, and will have so many root options as time passes, much like its predecessor.

tl;dr, I vote Android.

I say Android...but there are a lot of different models which vary a lot. For example I love my Motorala Droid, but I can't stand using my Dad's HTC model.

So its probably best for you to just check them all out...see what feels best but my vote goes to Android.

The only thing With Emu's is unless u can change it. Your Restricted to TWO touch points. Meaning 1 on the directional pad. and your choice of 1 button

SO Alot Of Super Nintendo games are out. Sega Emu Is better for phone play I been playing sonic. because all that is, Is forward or down and all buttons are jump...

And prob the most ideal would be the GBA emu Because Of it only having a Directional Pad and 2 buttons.

And this is What i come to. But i only owned the phone for 2 weeks. so i dont know everything about it yet so if there are ways to get the emus / phone to recognize more touch points i dont know.

Thank you very much for the feed back and all, but another quick question...

Does anyone have experience with the Windows Phone or BlackBerry, and how do they compare to the IPhone/Android?
