With the launch of the new IPhone about to hit us i would like to ask which is the best to have between it and the latest android phone>?

Since Harry hill is not here there will be no fighting.

The reason I ask is that I have a android and bound to get the comments that I should of waited for the IP5 launch from the likes of my brother etc.

Cheers, for reply, just to clarify, the reason i ask is not to argue with mates etc but generally interested if I should have waited.

I have the htc sense, but to be honest I didn't have a clue about phones and asked an ex for advice

I have an iPhone 3GS and I lurrrrve my phone, it's a 16gb I've had it nearly 2 years and I haven't run out of memory, the only downsides are you can't blutooth pics and stuff to your mates and there's no flash so u can take pics in the dark

Got to be iPhone, I had and abused my 1st one which was an iPhone 2g (I think) when that died I got an iPhone 4. Love it and wouldn't change it for anything. (apart from the iPhone 5).

iPhone 4 has an ultra bright flash also handy as a torch.

Also has a front camera.

It has a HD screen and is the only phone with that feature.

You can share via bluetooth via apps or iPhone to iPhone.

The 4 also has live video streaming.

yep, can do all them I think. 8mb cam and one on front.

Ok if you already have a Iphone or android then you will get the next one, afterall you know how it works but..

For someone new to phones which is the best to choose, the IP5 will be the latest on the market hence people will say that.
nice to have all these features but the apps that iphone user download most , according to my mates are power savers and most of the functions are turned off in order to save the battery life, this applies to androids as well.

To be honest I got my 1st iPhone as a fashion statement and I hated it until I got used to it.

Battery life is fine, I charge it once a day.

I now find it hard to use any other phone, I really fancied a Sony experia and when I eventually bought one it lasted 1 day then I got rid of it due to the screen looking horrible and not being able to use it properly.

My girlfriend has a blackberry and I have had a go of that and find it annoying so I wouldn't use another phone as like you said I'm now accustomed to it.

Being fair though I have to admit I've never had or entertained a HTC or any android/windows phones.

Mattlfc is the man to ask advice wink

Beta max tapes (for us oldies lol )

Personally I am not a fan of ios, I find it to be really limiting and expensive. Android is a much better os imo. I find that apple hardware is much better quality and better looking but you pay alot more for the privilege. Apple are starting to catch up a little on some of the other features such as cloud based services but even that is a charged service which is free on android.

I tend to find, if you are a gadget type of person, the iphone is best, if you are a techy and want a phone that does everything the iphone does with none of the limitations and you are not to bothered about the hardware, then android is best.

Fyi, android is currently outselling iphone 2 to 1. I would never get an iphone, they are to expensive

I prefer android, there are many reasons behind this such as it being an open source system and is more open to development for apps and the operating system its self, I recently purchased an android tablet over an iPad
