Recently I splashed out and brought an ipod classic from trade me, I hadn't done any real research and found out when I got it that they can be unreliable and the hard drive can crap out (which it had) so I brought an ipod touch as it uses flash drive and from what I could work out was more reliable.
I love the ipod touch, the interface, itunes everything is easy to use and being that the is about 1 billion of them out there it is easy to learn about.
Cutting to the chase, I love the ipod touch and I am over the slow and limited Nokia 5800 that I have so I want to upgrade to a Iphone 3GS 32GB, this would be fine except when reading about them inevitably there draws a comparison and eventually argument about how crap iphones are and how good this $300 android phone is.
I like the ipod touch for ease of use, it feels nice to use and is fast at what it does.
Is this the same for the iphone?
Does as android for the same money as a second hand iphone offer the same user experience or is there a compromise to be had?
I am so freaking confused about the whole thing as any thread I read seems to end in a flaming war with the iphone user being labelled an apple-fan-boy and android user being labelled a geek!
All I want to know is how does the UI of the android for around $5-600 compare to an iphone 3GS?
BTW I don't need/ can't afford an iphone 4(or 5 when it comes out) and am happy to actually pay for my music and apps.
