Droid X vs. iPhone 4
June 27, 2010 13 Comments
Those of you in the same shoes as me trying to make a decision between Droid and iPhone 4, here is a comparison chart (courtesy of Mashable). Although, it’s not a complete chart, but a decent one comparing the two.
Perfect timing as I am just about to make a switch from G1 to either iPhone or Droid. The physical keyboard and screen size are the most important things for me.
It looks like both Droid and iPhone have many desirable features and some issues too, but my concern would be switching from T-mobile, to either Verizon (Droid) or At&t (iPhone). I think Verizon is as good as T-mobile, but not sure about At&t.
The Droid X was never meant to beat iPhone 4. At first glance, you can see the Droid X having a good match-up with the iPhone 4. But the issue here doesn’t lie on the specs, but rather on the user-experience.
As for the wireless part, keep in mind, the iPhone 4′s 802.11n support is only the 2.4GHz n variety. It doesn’t have support for the dual-band N variety…thus, if your wifi router is 802.11n 5GHz only, your iPhone will not take advantage of it.
Other thing you may want to keep in mind the Mashable chart failed to mention the Apps. Yet there is a mention of Flash for the Driod, but not HTML 5 for iPhone… also that the iPhone by far has way more available apps than the Driod.
I also wanted to see a little bit mention of CPU or RAM specs… nice beginners chart though.
