I have the iphone and to be honest is great but if what you want some practical the android telephones are great also they have flash support. also, have to consider that iphone is developing new technology now so is in transision to something completely new with the OS 4 and the, not so far away, Iphone g4. so if you want to stick to something really stable an android based phone is the best option

Apple iPhone is the best one to go for, or Apple iPad any one is the best you can choose

Droid is newer than the iPhone 3GS. You may consider the next generation iPhone if you would like because for sure I must say that the features of it would be definitely more updated and better compared to the older generation and the Moto Droid. It would be release late June or up to early July.

Hey, The first thing you need to figure out is how much you are willing to spend on your phone. Also, what are the features that are most important to you? Do you use your phone to take pictures? If so you need one with a good camera, flash and zoom. If you like playing games you need to make sure you have a lot of available apps to download. Of course since it's a phone you also need the call quality to be excellent. I personally have an iphone. I like that I can download all the apps and play millions of games. I do not like the fact that I have to pay apple more above and beyond what they charged me for the phone. I also do not think the call quality and network coverage is that great. Other phones on the same network work much better. Apple also does not have flash enabled and that is very annoying because I like to watch videos on the go online and I can't do that. Apple also has a very restrictive policy in terms of their OS and upgrading and features. I hate the camera and even with the flash I don't know if my picture quality will be good enough. I don't have a stand alone camera and so I need a good one on my phone. The music player is nice and pretty similar to the ipod interface. Very convenient and easy to use. Personally, I feel the android based phones are the best buy as of now. Given a choice I would wait for a month and go in for the HTC Evo on sprint. It has all the features a smart phone should have and much much more. It has the best possible screen resolution and and HD output so you can view your videos on your tv. The apps on the android market place are also very good and developers are realizing it's a new and less restrictive platform. There are loads of apps there but they still don't have as many as the apple store does. But, there will definitely be new ones coming up everyday. The UI on the Evo is also very good and it is definitely much better than the rumoured iPhone 4G. Well the next iphone isn't 4G so more on that later. If your only choice is between the droid and the iPhone I would get the iPhone. But you need to be aware of the fact that there will be a new phone from Apple releasing in another 3 months or so. So your 3G or 3Gs will become quite obsolete in terms of accessories etc. So you will have to be prepared to scout on ebay and amazon for accessories as they will not be available in store. I would suuggest you go to sites like gizmodo, engadget, gsmarena and cnet in order to read more about both the phones and see if they actually have all the features you want and also read on what other who have the phone feel. All tehse sites have very good reviews. Hope you find a great phone.
