Default Iphone vs i8910?

Ok so just wondering what people think. I went through the specs roughly of both phones and found this, here is what i think is better on the iphone, or at least features that the i8910 does not have. Now my question is, which one is better?
Iphone 4 gen:
  • More megapixel screen, sharper display. (TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors 640 x 960 pixels, 3.5 inches) (Vs i8910: AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 360 x 640 pixels, 3.7 inches)
  • Higher fps on hd (30fps vs 24fps)
  • Acutal video calling that works (facetime) even if only through wifi, not sure in europe of i8910 works with video calling without fring (have not found fring to work with video calling yet, if u do let me know)
  • HD Video editing
  • Wifi Wireless N

I8910:
  • Better camera (8mp vs 5mp) also I think the panoramic mode rocks. (Geo-tagging, face, smile and blink detection, image stabilization, wide dynamic range, ISO 1600) (Vs iphone: Touch focus, geo-tagging)
  • Custom firmware (hx ftw. lol)
  • Can customize a lot more with firmware, and nokia ovi store and such.
  • Surround sound
  • FM Radio

Now looking at the specs, 1 I dont see a point to upgrade, as in video from what i see does not break a phone, 2 the i8910 had a lot of what the iphone just came out with 1 1/2 years ago... Not sure but from what i see other than the screen, 30fps hd video, video calling, and video editing i dont see i iphone beating the i8910. Your takes?

That's like comparing a 1 year old apple to a brand new orange.

But okay, I'll bite: I would never consider it. I hate the os (no real homescreen out of the box, even touchwiz shows more information), hardware issues (yellow spots, reception when holding the phone), glass back (why use something brittle like glass? Just take a look at Gizmodo...), still no real multitasking...no, thanks.

Not that the i8910 is the better phone in general, but I expect some more steps forward with my new phone.

I will wait for the next 4"+ high dpi Super-AMOLED Android 2.x phone with 1 GB RAM and all bells and whistles. Early next year I guess.

what do you mean? the i8910's video calling works just fine and is compatible with most of the hundreds of millions of 3G phones already out there. While Apple's version is only compatible with iPhone4s

hi,
to be honest ,our phone is much better then the others,we do have the best hd video,best photo,.....
now people are complaining about the reception of the iphone 4 ,this is what bbc reported:
BBC News - Users report 'fault' on iPhone 4

and another fault wich is the display http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPhon...ws.asp?c=21715

Anyway i think i'll get the latest nokia n8 or i'll keep i8910.

god luck !!!!!

And updating the iPhone OS isn't that helpful either, as it runs in slow motion on the 3g. On the other hand, you can run Android 2.1 on a frigging G1.

But both systems at least have an update possibility, that's why mee won't go back to a Nokia phone. Or Samsung's Bada for that matter. Samsung's Android devices can be rooted at least.

After reading articles on techcrunch and gizmodo, it seems like the new iPhone body is a complete design failure.

That would be okay for companies with the output of Samsung or HTC, but if you only have one phone in the line-up, you should make sure it doesn't shatter that easily and that it's possible to, you know, make a call with the damn phone when you hold it in your hand. Back to the drawing board.

no, networks in the USA don't support the standard version of video calling. I have no idea why.
