The newly released iPhone 4 is having some troubles in the press at the moment and may face some resistance from the new Droid X. If Apple do not resolve these iPhone 4 problems, unsure likely customers may move over to Motorola’s new Droid X as their communication device of option. There are some similarities and differences to think. This includes the operating system iOS 4.0 from Apple and the alternating Android 2.1, complete with Moto blur from Motorola. Apple’s iOS4 is a proprietary operating system, and only allows software that is first accepted by Apple, and made available from Apple’s online store. In the meantime, however, Android is an open source platform, and allows developers to freely develop new software and plug-ins for the operating system.
The memory from the iPhone is 512MB in the Droid X. The iPhone 4 weights 4.8 ounces, while the Droid X is 5.4 ounces.The iPhone keyboard is onscreen. The Droid X also utilize an onscreen keyboard, but also takes gain of SWYPE technology. Mostly, SWYPE allow users to drag their finger across the screen, touching all of the letters that fit in in a particular word, without lifting their finger. This device then automatically detects the word that the user was “swyping.”
On-board storage has iPhone as an easy winner with a choice of either 16GB or 32GB, even as its rival only offers one option of 8GB. The Droid X, though, comes with a 16GB MicroSD card built-in, bumping its default storage capacity to 24GB. Storage hungry users can also upgrade the microSD card, making the DroidX capable of conduct more overall data storage than the iPhone4.
Screen size gives the iPhone 3.5 inches, and 4.3 inches from the Droid, clearly making the Droid X a better choice for users that need lots of screen real estate. The Screen resolution, however, is far better from the iPhone 4 with 640 x 960 pixels, compared to 480 x 854 pixels. Compare to cameras, the iPhone 4 offers a 5MP camera with LED flash, at the same time Droid X offers an 8MP camera with a dual LED flash. The iPhone 4 offers a touch-to-focus feature, while the Droid X repeatedly focuses on human faces.Both phones have inspiring specs and features. but, the iPhone 4’s recent trouble is it will be interesting to see how many consumers opt for the Droid X vs the iPhone 4.
