Yup for two days and I really wanted to like it.With all due respect, I beg to differ @torque. Have you used Galaxy S?
From iOS4 onwards the iPhone supports multitasking. Yes the developer has to code the apps in such a way that they can use Apple's 7 identified processes but so what. Atleast my phone doesn't slow down no matter how many apps are open and the battery juice isnt sucked too.I agree that iPhone has one of the best user experiences, but thats the end of it. Some of the basic things are missing in that phone! One of them being multi-tasking.
I am not saying Galaxy S laggy, no not my a long shot. Its just that I expected more. I will give you an example: The Android's implementation of kinetic scroll is very choppy because apple implements inertia kinetic scroll which is far more usable. With all the hardware mumbo jumbo 1 GHz proc and the most powerful GPU in a mobile phone, the browser experience left a lot to be desired. The multi touch zoom was choppy and the phone stuttered whilst going through the web page and this compared to my 3GS which has more than 60 apps installed and comes with a 600 mhz only processor.With the release of Android 2.1, it has become one of the most stable platforms out there. What you have mentioned here is the Manufacturer and Carrier branding issues. The phone, especially Xperia (if not for the 1.6 impl.) and SGS, is not laggy, the implementation of a particular OEM/Carrier is.
Which is why I recommend that you spend some time with iPhone 3GS and use it like its meant to be used and if you have an eye for details, you wouldn't go back to Android ever!always bought phones for the features they offer but end up using it for making and receiving calls and texting the original two intended uses
