When I bought my wife an iPhone, it was day and night how much better iOS was than Android. I could actually type quickly, not have a laggy keyboard and lots of corrections. And even after 4 months of heavy use by my wife, the phone is still as fast and stable as it was out of the box. That's what I want.
December cannot come fast enough. Dang you VZW and your upgrade rules!
What Android phone did you have? Honestly, Android is like Windows XP now. All phones have much more power than is required to run the OS.
And you don't have
to run custom roms and you don't have
to root it. Maybe you shouldn't have been messing around with those things. Gingerbread stock runs great on all devices made within the past year.
