I have the droid charge which I love.. My sister got the droid bionic which is newer. . Very similar to my phone. . I also liked that one.. Most smart phones do the same stuff and in the end your likely to be happy with whatever you choose. Droids tend to have more free apps than the iphone if that is important to you, but ive heard iphones batteries (at least the older iphone) tend to last a bit longer than a droid. However aby smartphone will drain thr battery more quickly than your used to with a reg phone. And if you turn off thr search for 4G option on your droid (not all have his feature so double check) it saves big time on ypur battery!

You can turn it off on the iPhone as well.

I think it's a preference of how the phone feels to you. Rychelle go check out your options in person: droid, iPhone, whatever. And see what feels good to you.

I meant not all droids have the feature to turn off the "Searching for 4G " option Brooke. And it can really drain a battery!

Oh, that sucks. It really does drain the battery, on any phone. I use wireless whenever I can for my phone!

i Just got the iPhone 4, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  I've had it for a week and couldn't imagine anything else.  I was never big on apps too, until I got the phone.  It's awesome.  I feel like a little kid again LOL

 Adam uses t he household wireless for his iphone all the time and he gets good battery life.  He only searches for 4G when he is away from the house.

My DH has the iPhone 4G and he is a huge fan. I can't wait until my contract is up so I can get an iPhone too :)
