For Android users I would suggest a "where to buy an iphone app"
Why would they trade down?
On the plus side, although android phones have less versatile screens
Mine uses a full battery with moderate use in about 12 hours. You can smoke a full charge in 7 hours without trying too hard and the worst I've had was just under 6 hours with consistently heavy use. It is slightly better than a 3Gs but not enough to shout about to be honest as it's also slightly heavier. There just isn't a big enough difference, in terms of battery life at least, to really call it between either one. I've not had a play with the iPhone 4 yet, so won't comment. Suffice to say the non-removable memory is flaw enough to kill the idea of an iPhone for me....this also means that they use a lot less power (much less) than an Iphone, so this is good for outdoor types.
Android phones are also very much quicker to load and operate than Iphones. For example, and average Iphone 3Gs can take 19 seconds to load its 'app store' app, while an average android phone can do the same in less than one second. That is a major difference in operating speed! Andoid phones will often have a better signal in any given area than an average IPhone. Another example (on the same network) is a valley that I often go to, where I have no signal, while my son (on an android) not only has phone signal, but can log onto the net too.
Edited to add: "You'll need an app to go to the toilet next FPS!"
There are already apps for this lol, including ones where you can describe your stools and share it with other phone users around the world! ...How bizarre.
Thats a great bit of advice mate, just done that, and the amount of stuff that was on that bit at the bottom was unbelievable, thanks alloy mate.Tip to extend battery life on iphones. (latest software)
press menu button twice. This opens panel at the bottom of the screen showing applications running in the background. keep a finger on an icon until a minus sign appears. touch the minus sign to close these items running in the background. With these applications closed, the battery will last longer. The applications simply open again when selected.
I complained to the Apple store about my 3gs battery life, they said turn off 3G when you don't need it, it has made a slight improvement.
home screen>settings>general>network> enable 3G - switch off
