    No click screen.

    No 10 minute reboots.

    iPhone is better. I'll list the ways Storm is better because it's faster.

    Better security if you're on BES, otherwise it's the same, BIS vs SSL.
    Blinking LED light.
    Customizable themes
    Better notifications.
    Click screen if you like that.

    Just about everything else is better on iPhone. I'll list a couple of my personal favorite features on my i4.

    Screen. Everything else looks like unfocused now.
    Apps for everything, mostly free or under $10.
    iPod (the media player on the Torch is a poor copy)
    Browser, still the best browser especially combined with the screen.
    Most responsive touch interface around and no lag, unless you like that.

    There's still a gazillion other reasons, like Class 7 HSDPA, but it would get too long.

    Its depends on what model of iPhone you are talking about. But in general, iPhone is considered better.

    The Storm2 doesn't even compare to IP4
    3.2 MP vs. 5 MP Camera
    Way faster processor
    IP4 has 3 times the screen resolution
    Better hardware quality
    480 x 360 video recording vs. 720p HD quality
    And the list goes on

    The S2 can compare to the 3G and 3Gs however. S2 has slightly better screen and camera, processor, ect are all comparable. The form factor and functionality is based on opinion.

    Very good post, valid points. The S2 may compare with the 3G, but the i4 blows it away.

    Had both, the iPhone's keyboard is way more accurate.

    Can a humble S2 user chime in here?

    SurePress is what made it possible for me to venture into the touch screen jungle. Without it I'd have stuck with a Curve or Bold. Also, customization.

    Anyhow, the points listed here are all true. iPhone is better specs and performance wise. Don't forget that the browser for S2 is inferior to the iPhone's.

    However, just play around with both to give yourself a fair chance. If you like one over the other, by all means go ahead.

    Alright here I am .. S2 Users well as I was as of yesterday.

    I won't bash on BlackBerrys because their platform is nice but the S2 itself has some bugs in it.

    I got tired and frustrated being on calls take the phone away from my face to see call time or something and it was blacked out, or if I looked ait and would say some module not loaded.

    My bottom 4 buttons would stick continuously. You have no idea how frustrating it is until your leaving a voicemail and you have to pull your battery because you can't hang up.

    Videos are pixelated.

    The S2 is great if you want email and txt, even the surepress technolgy is great.

    I'll tell you the kicker for me was when RIM said Sorry no OS6 for the Storm2. My phone was 7 months old. Not even a year and RIM turned their back on it. Apple on the other hand still is coming out with OS updates on their platforms.

    It's nit picky stuff but those were my gripes!

    I'm not Apple fan boy but when it comes to comparing it to the Storm 2, I'm going to have to go with the iPhone.

    the updates... that so called iOS4 slowed down both my 3G and 3GS...
    and it took me years... to downgrade it back to 3.0
    Apple shouldn't have offered the OS4 upgrade to all 3G owners..
    there's no BIG benefit.. except for the folder options..

    Unless you unlock it and use it on AT&T. The phone is a quad band GSM device along with CDMA.

    I guess so, but the option is there, and you can upgrade if you want.

    Also, El Jobs-o addressed the issues and the fix is coming at the end of the week, which should fix any of these issues.

    But we'll see.
