What Phone Should You Go With?

Let’s face it, nowadays if you’re in the market for a new cell phone there are 2 options: iPhone or Android phone. No longer is your phone just a phone, it’s an mp3 player, media device, social networking tool, gps, text messenger, contact list, address book, camera and so much more. Reception and display are features that are expected and not luxuries. Applications are going to drive phone sales going forward and not features.

When it comes to free apps Apple’s iTunes store just has Android beat. By sheer numbers and of course a head start didn’t hurt either. When it comes to the app store money talks to developers. Android is still viewed as the open source phone where free apps are just expected by the community. But free stuff never brings out the good talent. In retrospect iPhone users will ultimately end up spending that $1 or $2 a month on that useful application. Why not? It’s only a dollar right?

It’s going to come down to what you’re willing to spend on a monthly basis. If you’re prepared to get an iPhone you’re going to be spending more than the average user. If you’re looking for the cheaper option you’re going to go with the Android phone.

    I don’t go by numbers. I go by which has the apps I want. Google Voice? A free NES emulator? Not on the iPhone.
