Round Robin: Android Casey's iPhone Video Review

[This is an official Smartphone Experts Round Robin post! Every day you reply here, you're automatically entered for a chance to win an iPhone 3G, Case-Mate Naked Case, and Motorola H9 Bluetooth Headset! Full contest rules here!]

Everything is going according to Smartphone Round Robin's designs: While I've been learning the ways of the Android, Casey shows the iPhone is still strong in him.

Head on over to Android Central, and be sure to tell him what you think: his own council should he keep, or do you find that it is he who is mistaken... about a great many things?

Remember, each SPE site is giving away their signature smartphone and accessories, so it's not just an iPhone 3G up for grabs! Every day you comment on Casey's video, or my thread in the Android Central Forum, you get two more chances to win a T-Mobile Android G1, along with a BlueAnt Z9 Bluetooth Headset, and SPE Screen Protectors!

Glenn says:

Jhauser says:

I have to say that I love this Round Robin. There is a ton of valuable insight, as each phone has their own strengths and weaknesses.

Tim says:

These are always the best reviews, you really get a good comparison of devices.

Andrea says:

I thought that win the G1 came out, I might regret my iPhone 3G decision, but I haven't at all. I love my iPhone.

Dimietriev says:

I have to agree with Andrea. Android needs some more hardware, other than this.

James says:

posting from my iPhone, and I still like the iPhone over the g1... I just can't wait for flash to come to the iPhone.

tmadsen says:

I think that the G1 could be pretty amazing when the bugs are all worked out. I'm personally not a fan of the design of the phone itself, but Android is really sweet.

cafe_civet says:

I feel like Android still has a ways to go. Not convinced about the hardware either.

andrew says:

The G1 isn't that bad but still far away from the iphone.

schartzr says:

Not at all impressed with the G1

Alfie B says:

I thought if anyone could unseat Apple as THE PHONE to have, I thought it would be google, but I just dont think its happening. It does not that the same sexy look

Phil says:

I would pick the iPhone anyday

Bla1ze says:

Nice review video, Android is really the only competittion out there for iPhone imo for what the OS does and what the iPhone does, but iPhone has the "looks" down, G1 is a sad looking device imo, bring more Android devices with better looks to them and Android may gain market share in the long run. I still can't believe the G1 is a HTC device.

Abdala says:

I would pick the Iphone over the G1, but the G1 is still a good device.

Alex Radu says:

I left him a bunch of application recommendationa. You iPhone users should add any that you think really use the iPhone's full potential (accelerometer, multi-touch, gps, etc...)

MrDude says:

heh, looks like Casey really love the IPhone

PhilR8 says:

The G1 still has an advantage over the iPhone: the hardware QWERTY. I gotta check out the SureClick on the blackberry storm (which is kind of a hybrid hardware/software keyboard, to be fair) but right now, hardware qwerty is the way to go.

.M.E. says:

pass a new iPhone my way please !!

WatersWest says:

Android is still a work in progress. I'll stick with iPhone for now. Thanks for the review!

yoyobo says:

iPhone or Bold still a good toss up, but Android has a nice spot in third for now. Android looks good with the flash 10 coming out.

hunter mcnabb says:

lovvvvvvveeee the iphone. i want one :)

Firas says:

I love it and have to agree there is no comparison. Great review. The matt finish alone makes it a dull phone.

Smudged says:

I've got to get a new phone in Jan so I'm anxious to see who comes out on top!

Patrick says:

I've really been torn on if I should get an iPhone, G1, or BB Storm. Although I'm sure I can't go wrong with any of these fine options, this video has me convinced it's pretty hard to beat the iPhone!

Jordan Hanna says:

please I need to win this.

MrDude says:

iPhone definately has its perks and sleekness.

Jordan Hanna says:

To make it short, iphone wins, every time

Jordan Hanna says:

man ive posted every single post, every single day i gotta win

Jeff says:

The YouTube frame above settles the dispute by itself. The iPhone is much more attractive. The chin on the G1 detracts from it's appearance. It should be interesting to see what other type of designs utilize Android - anything has to be better than the G1.

Static Invasion says:

The G1 is just a trimmed down Sidekick. Flipping open is just too old school. My friend has one and hates it. He loves my iPhone but is stuck with T-Mo for a while. Oh well.

Jordan Hanna says:

Well it's better than the voyager

Static Invasion says:

I'm for the bigger screen and smaller phone. That's way more high tech!

Static Invasion says:

Click my name to see the real winner. It's the Motorola i560. So sexy and even has an antennae for a stronger signal. Amazing!

Jordan Hanna says:

Iphone still kicks it's but. Ue just jealous.

Jordan Hanna says:

I need the phone of the gods.

Jordan Hanna says:

If I win I'll be interneally greatfully

Jordan Hanna says:

I need the jphone, jesusphone

KLutes says:

I think that the G1 as a whole doesn't feel together yet and that future iterations of this operating system and hardware combos will feel more robust, integrated and together.

Jordan Hanna says:

this phone is bbeeaauuttiiffuull!!
