Honestly i dont know too much about the HTC but i do have an iphone and let me tell you, it is the greatest thing ever. Its touch screen is the best i have ever used and it can literally do everything, plsu when you need it fixed you can just go to an apple store and they will make sure they fix it for you so the support is awesome. So i would probably have to say go with the iphone just because it has so much functionality and a great waranty

HTC is a good phone, Iphone also is a GREAT device. But I would never use an Iphone since its exclusive to AT&T and their 3G coverage sucks compared to Verizon.

Hi Jake,

Just one thing to help seeing as you have not posted to say which you have got...

The HTC Hero and the iPhone are the only phones currently available that do not use a pressure sensitive screen. As far as touch screen phones are concerned this is a massive advantage in that you get hardly any accidental "pocket calls".

HTC have attempted to incorporate many features that are more or less unique to this phone but you are left wondering whether they will catch on. The iPhone has the applications, many of which cost more money and the support that is second to none. So you are left with a simple choice:-
If you want the features in the phone that come as standard, don't want to be tied into ridiculous contracts and will use the phone for the next 2 or 3 years then HTC.
If you want to expand the phone and make it part of your life and not just a mobile telephone, irrespective of contract length and type then the Apple.

Just my thoughts having tested both...

My answer...

You guys in America should wait just a little while for the HTC HD2. I have one now (in Europe) and it's quite simply brilliant. On paper it's much better than the iphone - though I've never really used the iphone so I can't say for certain.

Yes Windows Mobile 6.5 isn't the greatest but it's customizable and HTC do a good job with HTC Sense to improve the UI. Also, remember that Windows Mobile 7 is due out this year and the hype is that it is going to be the savior of the WM platform.

The HD2 has a capacitive screen (the same as the iphone - though much bigger 4.3" v 3.5") and support multi-touch. It has a 1GHz processor with 576MB RAM and you lucky American boys and girls will get a whooping 1GB ROM.

Only thing is I think you guys will have it locked to just the T-Mobile network...

Casey

P.S. I don't work for HTC lol I just really like this device :blink: Here's a fairly decent review: http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/HTC-HD2-an...iew-r_2329.html

If I have been helping you and I do not reply within 48hours, feel free to send me a PM.

I think you would go for HTC.Those are with cool features.So many of my friends have the phones of HTC,and they are working really great.That is the main reason for choosing HTC.

I have had the Droid and am going to get the Nexus One in 10 days as soon as it comes it. The I3 is a great phone, but lacks the staying power, speed and flexibility of the new Droid phones. Open architecture is the future and will enable your phone to remain current with new software and creative applications from Dev.s. While HTC is top-shelf, the Nexus one is simply "incredible." 3.7 inch, AMOLED screen, 1 GHZ SnapDragon processor, and the list goes on. Here is what I just found from an IPhone owner about his decision to switch to the Nexus One "It's faster, It has better resolution and possibilities are endless on this phone. I felt confined on the iphone. no multitasking, minimal customization and I forced to use annoying apple software (itunes) I will never buy another iphone!!!" Plus, do you really want a phone where the manufacture (Apple) controls everything with an iron fist. Finally, you can get an unlocked version right now, or a Verizon compatible on the 24th. And also have no affiliation with the cell phone industry.
