    I have a DROID X. My wife is interested in the iPHONE.

    1) We were told by VERIZON that if the iPHONE gets wet, or is stolen, that the insurance company will NOT cover the cost of replacing the phone.

    2) That the iPHONE only has 25,000 apps, and the DROID X has 85,000 + apps.

    3) WHat is the reason that YOU went with the iPHONE, vs the DROID X ??

    ( OH, items #1 and #2 were told to us by our VERIZON salesman).

    Thanx

    Dang the sales people will say anything. The iPhone has the most apps of any of them last I heard thought it was above 300,000. I decided to try iOS out because I had a droid incredible and the android OS just seems unfinished and battery life sucked.

    1. Aslong as you have apple care protection you should be fine.

    2. Download iTunes and take a look at the app store for yourself.

    3. iOS 5 coming out, not having apps that might carry viruses or something, and how the phone looks

    That's absurd. Maybe he meant to say 250,000 for iPhone, which is a little more accurate; as for the 85,000 on Android Market... I have no idea what he may have meant cus that is way off and there's no plausible mistake I can see he made.

    If you're asking us question #3, I'll give you an answer...
    The Droid X is a freakin' brick. Thing is massive in my opinion and the buttons look tacky to me. Also, I'm one of those iPhone users who has an unexplained dislike for Android phones, so I would never get one anyways...

    It's funny how smartphones have become such a war; not just in the marketplace, but also to the users. I see so many Android users who absolutely hate iOS for no apparent reason, iOS who hate Android for no reason - I don't hate Android, I just don't care for it - and BlackBerry users I have noticed on forums and such hate iOS as well(although I've read otherwise, as BB users are flocking to iPhones).

    I've personally heard of very few cases where Apple replaced at no cost an iPhone covered by Apple Care in the case of catastrophic water damage. But of course your mileage may vary

    Apple Care normally does not.cover damage, loss, theft, etc. It is merely a warranty extension to cover defects. HOWEVER, my experience with Apple is that if you go into the store sad and you explain what happened without getting angry or pushy, they will often take care of you in some way or another.

    As for apps, I think the actual number is really irrelevant at this point. There are more for the iPhone, but there are so many different apps that do the same thing, counting them is pointless. Both have WAY more apps than anyone will ever need. Think of it like the iPhone has 100 calculator apps and Android only has 50 to chose from...lol! I just pulled those numbers out of.a dark place, btw.

    I like the iPhone for the battery life, but in most other respects, I find myself liking the Thunderbolt more. Mostly because internet and mobile hot spot are top priority for me. I would never buy another 3G phone now that I've seen close to 40 MBPS...lol. So, yeah, I think the iPhone is a great device, but on VZW anyway, it is outclassed right now...at least for my wants and needs. It's a lot more level playing field when comparing to the Droid X.

    Anyway, I would say the main reason to get the iPhone is simplicity. It's like an appliance; you turn it on and use it. If that is what your wife wants then go for it.

    Everyone has pretty much answered questions 1 & 2 for you...therefore my answer to Q3.

    - App variety and quality
    - Build quality and design
    - battery
    - OS
    - Ease of use

    Those are my reasons for choosing iPhone over Android or anything else on the current market.

    I think she should try it and get whatever she likes. We are all different and like what we like for own reasons or maybe we don't even know why we like or dislike something else.

    But I think they are all good and all have some bad or different mixed in.

    Oh, I'm NOT picking out a phone for her. I'm smarter than that !! ;-) We were just discussing them and I thought I'd ask actual owners.

    Do you know anyone that has one? Has she tried one in a store? It's good to get opinions also as sometimes just playing with one for a short while doesn't let you know everything about it but it will come down to if she likes it.

    It would probably help if she had some specific questions to ask about it.

    Yes you are a smart man not to choose for her LOL.
