jlly_rnchr saidOk, moment of truth, is it better/worse/about the same as the iPhone? I was considering switching to AT&T just to get the iPhone, but if the Droid is just as good (or almost), I'll save myself the hassle.
It's only 200$, right?
I also have an Ipod Touch so here is my review:
As others have said the ipod interface is a little better. I like web browsing on Ipod better because I can stretch windows larger--the Droid I have to double tap and it doesn't always go where I want it to.
The Droid's voice recognition technology is amazing. I just say "call ______" and it will call them. I can say "find local restaurants" and it searches google maps and within seconds I have a listing. Keep in mind I live in a town with fewer than 400 people and work in a town with fewer than 2000. To get a street level view, to me, well it blew me away.
I also rarely use the keyboard because the keys are small, but the virtual keyboard gives word options when txting so it makes replying much faster.
As for everything else, it does play mp3s very well and runs similar apps to what I have on my Ipod.
It will automatically switch to my home wifi network rather than use 3g. Though the 3g is still pretty fast.
As far as Verizon goes, I'm not a fan. I was with Alltel and got bought out by Verizion--their coverage in rural areas is superior to ATT's non-existant coverage. I have yet to drop a call.
Is it better than an Iphone? Hard to say it's hands down better, but it does what an Iphone does (and more) and has better coverage.
