At Loquient Tech Source, we have been successfully matching technology and customers together since 1994. We have learned a great deal over the decades and want to share what you should know before buying a device.
Functional vs. Fiddly
Total Flexibility vs. Constraints
Android and Droid phones do have a great deal of flexibility. You can flash your device with different versions of the Droid or Android operating system, configure almost every detail of the user experience, and find way to customize the home screen with add-in applications. The iPhone, while flashable with jailbreak versions of the operating system, is a bit less flexible. You void the warranty on your iPhone device if you flash using jailbreak applications. From our experience, it is best to stay with the OS provided by Apple unless you are an advanced user. For total flexibility in the iPhone vs Droid debate, the Droid wins.
I Want it Now vs. I Can Wait
Still waiting for Netflix on your Android or Droid device? You might be waiting a while. The bottom line, most companies develop for the iPhone platform first. You also see many upgraded features and interfaces for the iPhone before Droid or Android. If you have to have it now, the iPhone is your best bet. In this category of latest and greatest for iPhone vs Droid, the iPhones have it.
Bottom line, we like the iPhone device and recommend to friends and family. The interface is consistent and easy to use. Most can use with little to no training. iPhones are best for smartphone newbies who want consistent service without a great deal of user intervention.
