Although Apple iPhone has giant steps ahead of Verizon Droid in terms of the operating systems which had fixed a lot of bugs in the past years and the crisp multi-touch technology, Droid has huge potential to keep it close with Apple. However, average consumers may find Droid's operating system which is created by Google not as user-friendly as the iPhone since it is a Linux environment.

      Having had both the iPhone and the Android, I have to give kudos to the Android for flexibility, and the iPhone for ease of use.
