Tomorrow at 6AM I’ll have to get dressed, have breakfast, and go on a pwnage run while taking the SSAT (Secondary School Admissions Test for you peeps). It’s for applying to private schools, and I’ll be entering as a 9th grader (or 13-year-old gadget blogger). Wish me luck!
But that’s not the reason why I’m writing this. I’m writing a column here. An opinionated post. And they’ll appear more and more often, because what’s a proper tech site, a “blog” if you will, without posts straight from the authors internal wirings? And this is about the iPhone 4 (and then some). As much as friends, and other bloggers I’ve spoken to are shocked, I’ve never owned an iPhone. Not once. Nor have I ever owned an Android phone. Never. Nor have I ever owned a phone.
Yes, it’s true. All of my experience is mainly attributed to mainly computers. That, I own. But a smartphone, I haven’t. Mainly it’s been testing out the review units (that are always returned), providing up-to-date and crisp reviews to you readers that I found Android is on the march to become a perfect smartphone OS (even though it isn’t now). After hearing the iPhone 4 announcement, and comparing it to the EVO 4G, I came to the conclusion that after meeting up with a new EVO 4G owner in New York, that the battery is really that bad. I then turned towards the Droid Incredible, but then worried of the same. But then I saw the iPhone 4. I was spellbound. And I’m not an Apple Fanboy; I could give you a mile long list why I hate Apple and why I love them (mainly for the iPhone’s simplicity, that I’ve used time and time again).
The Droid X is an awesome looking device. After probably seeing it for a super split second, I also was in love with it. My choice might come down to the iPhone 4, and the Droid Xtreme (sorry Droid 2). You see, the iPhone 4 is the new standard of smartphones, while the DROID line and EVO 4G are the phones that say “Hey, this is how the future really looks like”!
It will simply come down to which one I like, personally. But that’ll never, ever, come into play in one of my reviews. The game of favoritism is for back players. To me, reviewing is mainly WYSIWYG, and I think it’s the only way humanoids can stay fair.
