    Iphone?

    Hey guys. My family is thinking about getting Iphones but I don't know if i want to pay for it. My family would pay for the plan but I would have to buy out of my contract with Us Cellular and buy the Iphone. What are some major advantages and disadvantages of the Iphone, and if you don't think I should get the Iphone is there another phone I should get?

    If you're not getting the iPhone I would get the Samsung Galaxy SII or Galaxy Nexus.

    ^ Ravallo beat me to it. Do not get the iPhone, you're better off with the Galaxy Nexus or, if you want play around a bit to get ICS, Galaxy SII. Alternatively if you don't care much about ICS and just want power, LG Optimus 2X is pretty cool when it comes to gfx performance. On the other hand you could just wait a bit for the next gen phones that come with ICS and Tegra 3 or with the new Esynox

    What possible advantages does it have? From the first link:

    Large screen with a purity of high-and the clarity of wonderful viewing, even under the sun. It supports the touch capacitive capacitive, which provides the highest sensitivity to touch at the touch of a finger with support for touch multiplayer, and are resistant to scratching by a very high, is sensitive to the movement of the device acceleromotor sensor with enormous potential, is sensitive to near the phone to your ear active scrolling.

    Store the programs via Apple Store with a huge number of programs and games. It has an aattractive design and polished the speed of response and ease in implementing the tasks. Any iPod with the iPod built-in multimedia features, known as operator, a mini operating system from Mac OSX .10 – Apple Safari browser with built-in device, the entrance to 3.5 mm headset, built-in compass in the 3Gs, large internal memory.

    > most new higher-end Android phones beat the iPhone'e screen hands down. Seen the Galaxy SII? No? Maybe you live under a rock.
    > Apple Store - already debated this so many times in the past. Android's market has pretty much the same basic apps and is more prosperous.
    > iOS <<<<< Android (check the general thread from a few days ago)

    > compass = who doesn't have that?
    > 3G/4G = who doesn't have that?
    > large internal memory = who doesn't have that?

    From the second link:

    > Hardware - This is probably the main iPhone advantage.
    Bull-fucking-shit. I would like to see you run a UE game at 1080p via HDMI on an iphone /akak
    > Camera – The iPhone 4 has a pretty good camera if you’ve got enough light.
    Herp derp?
    > Podcast apps
    Seriously? iCatcher < half the shit out there
    > iTunes remote
    VLC, Media Player classic, Youtube, you can even turn your Android into a full system remote. iTunes remote is a joke. iTunes itself is a joke and shitty.
    > Polish
    Someone never heard of CM7, MUI or any non-stock roms, derp.

    What I said about roms.

    Don't get the IPhone. Everything Alen said.

    Also the case of durability... IPhone is terribad. If you drop your IPhone by accident just once, screen might break, or edges might be be damaged. Just what I know. Happened to a friend. One fall of the IPhone to ground and the IPhone screen was slightly broken.
