    RAZR MAxx. SMokes the Ifoner in speed, and has the most battery life of any phone out right now.

Google it and youll see a few threads and news articles about it. Basically a Droid Razr MAXX with even more upgrades. HD screen, better camera, 1.8 ghz processor, and possible 2 gb of RAM. same 3300MAh battery anf form factor.

    If your looking now. Raxr MAXX 100%

    reported time is June.. WAS April 12th, and no word obviously. now more sources say June. If you cant wait tho, Id go with the Razr. not sure what your time frame is., but it could be worth it. if the phone is great you can pick that up, maybe something else will be out by then, and or if something comes out, the razr maxx will drop in price.

    Iphone!

    Android v.s. Iphone Is like buying a domestic vehicle over an import. Resale value is pretty good on an iPhone. And you don't have to worry about upgrading to the newest and best every couple months. Just my .02

    You do what you want! :) I've had an iPhone since the original aluminum case kind. Haven't liked anything else.

    and Apple is sooo dependant on their own programs and software. they are nowhere near as open source as android.. example: music and movies must be in their format and play in their program.. android, i just drag and drop ANYTHING i want and it plays. music, movies, videos, and if i dont like the native players, i download something different. Iphone is more stable tho, ill give them that. and thats it.. lol

    If you want an iphone and don't mind waiting a few months, the 5 is supposed to release this fall. Out of the phones you have listed, Razor Maxx.

    And let the Apple/Android wars begin. Again...

    The RazR does not "smoke" the 4S...we tested that remember? Yours was a little quicker but I didn't have as good of service as you...Verizon is better than Sprint for sure although Sprint offers unlimited data at the cheapest flat rate!

    OP I say get either the RazR or 4S...best phones on the market and you'll be pleased with either one!

    Pleeeeeeeaaaaase......it's the carrier...not the phone. Your memory doesn't serve you well...stop sipping grandpas cough syrup! The IPhone is more user friendly than the Droids and is more reliable...

    That may be true, BUT it spends ALOT of time switching between 3 and 4G, searching if you will. And besides those 2 things, The Iphone does everything else way better, Call quality, Photo Quality, I studied the phones for a year and I consider the Iphone to be the best thing Ive ever bought. and Wait , the new Iphone is coming. If your set on a Droid then the Maxx is a great choice.
    Here in Ohio the 4G isnt at "ready to go" as VZW would have you believe.

    Id say the call quality is a tie, and the ifoners camera kicks the shit out of any other phone......i think....
