keep iphone 4s and c what happens with the Droid Razr
go get the bionic and c if u can exchange for droid razr when it comes out
just stick with the iphone 4s and pay full price for iphone 5 LTE
Heres my situation, unfortunately verizon is making me sign a contract so i continue receiving my discount on the plan im on. Im still grandfathered into the unlimited data so thats a nice thing.
I had the iphone 4 but yesterday i traded it for the droid bionic. I have 9 days left if i want to go back to the droid bionic
Here is my dilemma
-4g LTE down here is blazing fast
- the ability to save pdfs etc and remote access to my desktop (although i can do this with the iphone with team viewer, i cant tranfer files to the iphone)
- doesnt have iTalk- i use this app EVERYDAY to record all of my lectures, but i reference them may be 2-3 times a week. The bionic doesnt have a irecord feature, and if it does, the mic is crappy and it cant record.
- The battery life stinks vs iphone.
- no personal assistant like siri
- massive ugly pentile qhd display (but its massive) so typing is easier
- call quality is not as good as the iphone
- can do everything iphone can without jailbreak
- no macbook sync, like back up of text messages etc
- Terrible camera
- fantastic camcorder
The iphone 4s
- iTalk! Best app in the world records all my lectures
- Cheaper than the droid bionic by 30 unless i get the 32gb which i might.
- No 4G
- Better display
- smaller screen
-Syncs with my macbook
- amazing camera and camcorder
- No facetime unless on wifi
- No HQ youtube unless on wifi
- Cant save PDFs or docs unless your jailbroken
One should note, i do have an extrenal lecture recorder, but its very tiresome to keep updating the lecture onto the desktop then sync it to my phone because it is time consuming. The iphone was great in the sense all my lectures and everything were on one device.
Really i cant decide between the two, and some help would be greatly appreciated. Also, i am limited to verizon because its cheaper than sprint for me and sprint has bad reception down here.
ii have had both, and right now i have the iphone 4s, siri is pretty good but you know what 4g data is absolutely amazing. The fact is italk is the most important app, but i cant seem to find something reliable and equivalent on android.
in general android is muchhhhhh less stable than iOS.
What should i do guys?
Should i even wait for the droid HD or the HTC vigor, i had to sign a contract so really in the next week or so i need to pick and finalize a phone.
i am drooling over 4g tho.
My advice; if you can wait a week, hold off until Android 4.0 and the Galaxy Nexus are announced next Tuesday evening. That'll provide a better comparison between iOS and Android. Plus, if the rumors are true, the Nexus should blow away just about anything else on the market.

Given the fact that you have to have iTalk, I think you should go with the iPhone. And you can save PDF files into iBooks, when you open them you should have an option to view in iBooks. When you view them in iBooks, it saves them automatically.
As far as docs go, all I can say us box.net. Download the app on your iPhone and sign up for a free account and they will GIVE you 50 gb of cloud storage accessible from any computer. They're only doing it for a short time though. This is for iOS devices ONLY!!!

The Box.net deal is great, I got it with my WebOS device. But keep in mind, the account they give you doesn't support SSL or encrypted storage, so it really shouldn't be used for anything sensitive.

But heres a MASSIVE deal breaker, i have used 4 gb of data this month, granted im on the unlimited plan, verizon throttles at 2gb!!!!
What should i do?
Also, what about editing docs and excel and sending them away? i hate the fact we cant face time over 3g too.
I personally have not experienced any throttling at 2GB.
I don't see how it's a real "deal breaker" considering that most of the other carriers have limited plans. It's either have "unlimited" and be throttled at a certain amount, or have a limited plan and pay per GB the second you go over a predefined amount. The choice is yours.
You listed out the pros and cons well. I do enjoy lte speeds but battery life suffers. I love HQ youtube and no buffering especially when on 4G.
Just gotta bring power wherever you go.
< thunderbolt user. Pondering getting the bionic or wait for the next best thing.
