CNET Prizefight: Motorola Droid vs. Apple iPhone 3GS - CNET.com
But look at what gave the iPhone the win. It won on styling, which is subjective. Put me on that panel and another guy, or girl, that like rugged bad a$$ looking devices and the outcome would have been different.
It was a tie and the iPhone won on a subjective category.

Glad to see the Droid got a fair shot at least. I believe this is the first time the iPhone has ever been tied??? I think the 4.0 the Droid received in round 4 was a little low and I agree with cereal that style is subjective. Personally, I think the iPhone style is played out and the Droid is refreshing.

Style is certainly subjective. I do like the style of the iPhone better, but that's just me. One thing the iPhone has going for it is an abundance of accessories. I'm sure the droid will be getting quite a few more, but it may never catch up because in the next year or so a completely new Android phone will be out to replace the droid. Since these devices are first and foremost a cell phone, the call quality is the most important feature. AT&T is the reason that I will never own an iPhone. If the iPhone was on Verizon we probably wouldn't even be talking about the droid.

If Verizon had the iPhone where would the Droid come in? Second place probably. The only thing that holds the iPhone back is ATT's limp 3G network around Arizona.Samsung Galaxy Nexus, iPad2 and iMac. Former BB 8100 and 8900 owner.

I mess with my friends iphones all the time. And I have played with a driod as well. I will say the iphone is still such a neat phone especially when you factor in how much more responsive it was from day 1 compared to storm 1 day 1 which was years later. My biggest factor is well AT&T, I cant talk for everyone but their network coverage is complete garbage over here and all o my friends with iphones drop calls everyday. I have never dropped a call on verizon other then to my AT&T friends. I am not a fan of VZW's pricing but you know what here in NJ, I went to Vegas, Florida and even Dominica Republic and have never had a dropped call issue. I would think making and receiving phone calls would factor in for what 80% of your score for rating a phone? lol

Even if VZW had the iPhone, I'd still be using a Droid.
Now if VZW had the iPhone in the beginning, the Droid may not have come to pass because when people have the iPhone they get into the mindset of "this is the best, we can't do better" but VZW/Moto/Google did in my eyes. For some people the iPhone is a better device but not for me (regardless of the network), Droid FTW8330 > 9530 > DROID

Cnet has always been bias towards the iphone and to a certain extent the BBs. An unfair comparison. Droid would demolish the iphone on screen resolution alone. Anyone wanna bet?

Not enough experience with the Droid.
They have all been playing with the iPhone for a couple of years and the Droid a few hours, if that. Not a fair comparison. The more I use the Droid, the more I discover it can do. Frankly, they only needed a tie breaker because they did not know enough about the web browsing features of the Droid and ranked that too low. They gave the iPhone credit for things it will have in the future against things the Droid has now! I say, this fight was fixed. They made the Droid take a fall.If I'm not here when you call, it's because I'm...gnfishin!
