We all can. But we'd likely give different answers I think the iPhone is better. The reviews I read, the pundits I trust all agree that the iPhone remains the best designed -hardware and software- phone. The entire system is better conceived, better designed, better implemented. And it costs the same or less than any other smartphone. But that's me. My biases are well know around here . Some here will agree; some will disagree. So let me reframe the question. What matters more to you: best carrier, best phone, or best price? If carrier, get your preferred Android phone on Verizon. Otherwise, buy an iPhone 4 on AT&T. And if cost trumps all, get a free-with-contract smartphone on Sprint or T-Mobile. And if you want the best Android phone, you want to buy the flavor of the month. I think the incredible is outdated by android standards and you should get the latest, a Nexus S or Galaxy or Droid Pro, I think. And of course: spend some time in the store playing with the phones. Look at what your friends have. Happy shopping!
