iPhone 4 In Showdown With Droid X

PCWorld: iPhone 4 In Showdown With Droid X

PC World compares specs and puts the two phone models through their paces. Results? iPhone wins on performance, Android on total cost of ownership.

“Retina display! 8-megapixel camera! Video calls! HDMI port! The last few days have seen lots of shouting from proponents of the hot phones of the minute, the Apple iPhone 4 and Motorola Droid X. Which phone really delivers the best experience? We got our hands on both and tested them in seven categories: cost of ownership, storage, connection speeds, still and video image capture, display and resolution, operating system and multitasking and media playback.

The iPhone 4 won the majority of our battles–but barely. Both phones are incredibly fast, have superb displays and come loaded with multimedia features. Some of our tests however, like OS and media playback, really come down to personal preference. On the other hand, our display, still camera and camcorder tests clearly prove that the iPhone 4 is stronger in these categories. And the iPhone won our data speed and voice quality tests, though these were confined to San Francisco. The results could be different in other parts of the country.”
