My Brother installed a game on his Droid only to find out later it was key logger. He did not do any banking on his phone but his Facebook profile got hacked. Pretty crappy of Google to let stuff like that slide on Google Play.

Found it easier to use iOS and had less crashes early on. But now both systems are equal but a bit more configurable with Android. The one thing I like more about iOS is that it plays well with apple hardware and for messaging. Also really like apple's App Store which is much better than Google Play and Windows Market. Once apple builds more versions of the iPhone the. They they will begin to gain more market share. One more thing is the support for iPhones and software is awesome. Much better than google support and updates.

Exactly, all it is just screen size, then they got the biggest upgrade in history judging from surveys and whoever planned to upgrade.
