The iPhone has more apps than the Droid phone and is a bit thinner, but it lacks a physical keyboard, arguably an inferior screen, a worse camera, no support for Flash, and a lack of true multitasking, forcing app backgrounding. Apple is reportedly planning a price cut on a reduced memory iPhone 3GS (8 GB) to try to stay competitive.

Agree. My iphone does everything great but answer calls. I'm thinking of going to a different phone at the end of the contract and using it as an ipod touch.

Dropped calls and the iffy 3.0 update have been the primary pain-points with the iPhone for me.

Heck, with the 3.0 update, if I didn't reboot my phone, it would randomly stop receiving/alerting me about calls and texts. I felt so unloved :(

I walked into the Verizon store and will keep an eye on this phone. The navigation feature is awesome and I really hope it gets ported to the iPhone.

I am waiting to see where the next iPhone goes :)
