I currently use an iPhone, but hate ATT service, I'm wondering what the differences will be between the two?
The passion's screen is far superior. The passion's screen is 0.2" larger which isn't much but it will be noticeable. Much more importantly, the pixel count is almost triple that of the iphones. This creates unrivaled detail. Images will appear almost perfect. Finally, the passions screen is AMOLED. This means that the viewing angle is much better, blacks appear much darker and colours appear much brighter (colours certainly will not looked washed out unlike on the iphone). And AMOLED uses much less energy than TFTs (around 50% of the energy TFTs use) meaning that battery life is increased. The iPhone simply cannot compete with the passions beautiful screen.
Let's take a look at the processors. 1GHz vs 600MHz. I don't need to break it down anymore, it's clear who the victor is here. The passion destroys the iPhone when it comes to processors.
Lets look at the camera capabilities. the iPhone lacks a flash, making it impossible to take photos in any dark areas such as nightclubs or anywhere outside (or without a light) at night. Quite frankly, the iPhones photos are terrible. The Passion does have a flash and is 5MP and records at 720p. Thats 1280x720,or 921,600 pixels. The iPhone records at 320
@tarpoonbeach: but the fart apps would made up for the short coming. sorry, I can't help it,!lol'
Btw, I too,owned a iphone 3g,(was going to 3Gs but my 3Gs friend stopped me)oops,apple did (even though I paid for it) and i am getting rid of it come early 2010.(the milestone in canada officially) I finally realized that I am being controlled by apple,even down to the battery,I've to beg to have my battery changed?? (a whopping $110.00 and to wait for a week) because dictator Steve.J said so.Not anymore ! android has catches up and give me the freedom of choice. I don't need a glorified toy anymore, hi apple, do you know they MULTI-TASKING and a few awesome functionality to go with it? Really,Apple!, I suggest Steve check it out.
I know apple revolutionised the device and what have they done since then, beside 100,000 apps? Ok, from iphone 3g to 3gs big deal! a small changes. Sucking people into changing for the "S" and selling more of the same iphone to the same suckers and hardly worth it.
I believed given android the time, it is going to evolve into a awesome phone.The apps will definitely catches up too.(10,000)
Hey,at least I can have my cake and eat it too. It is call CUSTOMIZITION.
Oh, I can even, able, wow! to change my battery or carry 1or2 for spares just in case I got lost in the desert.LOL' ( there are no desert in canada to get lost, apple, you got my point)
Lastly, iphone users (me too) are so brain-washed into thinking that iphone is THE device and nothing could or will replaced it. They're so scare to venture out to try something new.Maybe Dictator Steve.J. will get mad and take their iphones away from them.lol'
I've yet to hear anything wrong or need improvement on the iphones even if apple kept the same platform or format for the next 10 years.The iphone users will obediently wait for the next whatever apple dishes out. I am sorry it true.
Android is much more user-friendly and more fun to use than the iPhone OS. Plus that Snapdragon CPU means absolutely no lag on the phone.
Not inevitably. Not all people want to fill up their screens with widgets.Thats wishful thinking.
The reason Iphones are so fast is they have a good processor but they dont multi task , and painting the home screen takes little to no horsepower.
With droid people seem to want to fill up there 3-7 home screens with every widget and feature while multi tasking up the ying yang,
Great as that is inevitably that leads to lag.
You're getting mixed up. The issue isn't that user experience varies, the issue is that some users have a poor experience due to lag/choppiness. If I install a bunch of programs on my PC and then it runs slow it's not the PCs fault, its mine and the same applies to phones. The solution to this problem isn't to stop users from installing programs that run in the background. The solution is to educate and advise users about installing certain programs.The downside of being able to do whatever you want with your phone is user experience will vary. Where as Iphone everyones experience is nearly identical by design.
The average person who has the phone will not have that many apps. It's power users who install many apps, and the good thing is that they're often the most informed users. So if it does lag they'll know how to fix it.Android Im sure will push new features, and functions that will push hardware every generation. Only careful, and smart users will have truly lag free experiences.
It turns out I was wrong. But still, 307,200 pixels per frame doesn't compare to 921,600. I think the best way to demonstrate this is to compare a 720p video to a 640x480 side by side.Iphone currently records at 640x480 30FPS and IMO considering the camera app currently destroys what is currently out there for android handsets. But hopefully the passion does do 720P and has better lowlight rendering. The "google Phone" test photos that they employees are putting up right now are terrible, so hopefully that is not the "passion" phone.....
