New smart phones

    I am eligible for an upgrade and looking around the market to see what's available. Have the iPhone 4 and have had iPhones for a while now, and have no real issue with them, but I'm certainly not married to Apple products.

    Just looking for advice on the phones themselves. I know we've had old threads on this topic, but the market changes so often I didn't see the harm in starting a new one. So what phone do you prefer and why?

    Just upgraded to iPhone 4 almost a year ago. No complaints ... didn't get enough memory, but that's because I like my music (portable, that is ... still doesn't compare to popping in a CD and upsetting the neighbors ... ).

    Is the 4S or 5 really that much better? The 4 does everything I could realistically ask ...

    I love my Droid Razr, for what it's worth.

    I'll second IJAG's love for Droid Razrs.

    I upgraded from a Droid 2 to a Droid Razr Maxx in November (and Mr. Rosie got his very first smart phone at the same time, the Razr.) For looks, I think the Razrs look much more elegant than the iPhones. At a recent family get-together, many of us had our phones out - half had iPhones, half had Razrs and the iPhones looked like old little bricks: Smaller screen, twice as thick.

    And speaking of screens, I have never seen a brand of phones with so many broken screens as iPhones. I chaperone several youth events from small to large. My observations show the kids with iPhones always seem to have broken screens, and some adults with iPhones have broken phone screens as well.

    For "to-do" abilities, I have found Droids to do just as much as the touted iPhones, and you don't have to deal with iTunes. (I abhor iTunes!) Backing up music or pictures is a snap on the Droid, just connect it to your computer and copy the files to your puter - no different than using a jump drive. There are just as many apps out there for Android-based OSs now, as well.

    Bottom line, I highly recommend Android-based phones over iPhones, especially the Razrs. Added bonus to Razrs is toughness - gorilla glass screen and Kevlar body.

    JR and I got our first smartphones last year and went with the Galaxy Nexus. Really, really love it.
