HTC Desire HD vs iPhone 4


Best of both worlds. Hard to decide when it comes down to it.

The HTC Desire HD (I still can't wait to get one)
Pros
  • Beautiful form factor. (Who wouldn't want a 4.3" screen?)
  • SRS and Dolby supported.
  • Latest flagship for the Android camp.
  • Updated HTC Sense UI
  • Seamless integration with social media - You can view all your FaceBook, Twitter updates fused into your Address books. What a touch.
Cons
  • A terrible battery life - one site claimed only 5 hours of usage.
  • Insufficient Media capabilities (how do you fight against Apple's iPod features??)
  • Some say a washed out screen resolution, when compared to the HTC Desire.
  • Heavy? (I'm on the fence with this one. Seriously, how heavy is 164g?)

The Apple iPhone 4
Pros
  • Its an iPhone. (Guess that says it all)
  • Retina display. Having used one for a brief period of time. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The screen made everything look beautiful. Almost 3D popping out beautiful.
  • Sleeker form factor, glass front and back (not necessarily a great plus point)
  • FaceTime.
  • Better camera capabilities (than the 3GS)
  • I could go on here, but really, you DON'T know about the iPhone 4? You must have been born yesterday.
Cons
  • Arguably, the iPhone 3GS would be good enough. It does everything the 4 can do, especially in terms of the new iOS 4.
  • Glass body isn't quite smash-proof. But then, what phone is right?
  • Must sync with iTunes for everything.
Its a tough choice.
Both cost SGD888 (or BND)(if you're gunning for the 16GB iPhone 4 that is), both offer the latest from both camps. It really does come down to this question; Which camp do you support?
