    Personal opinion - I like having choice, so naturally, I will never own an iPhone.
    The first part of this post is rational. The second part makes no sense to me.

    Because you like having a choice, you automatically ignore one of them? WTF? And when you have 2 basic options, that means because you like to have a choice you choose to not have a choice.

    Dude.

    Give both of them an honest look, then make your choice. If you're a true Linux nerd through and through, then you will probably pick an Android phone just because of how everything works, but choosing before you review the product is kinda senseless isn't it?

    As a former fruit user both desktop and phone, as well as having sashayed back and forth with Android I still prefer Android and it has come ahead in leaps and bounds with ICS.

    I had a Motorola Atrix (after having an iPhone 4) before going back to the 4S in January this year and now? I am pretty bored with the 4S an iOS in general. Its jailbroken and tweaked but even then its still...well...boring...

    My Atrix is what I use as my main device now with the 4S getting used for the odd facetime call and iMessage (its only advantage IMO as I have a lot of US and Canadian friends with iPhones its just easy - YES depite there being a myriad of free alternatives!!)

    Widgets and being able to do what you want with this phone (not unlike GNU/Linux) is what I really like about Android. Android in some area's is definitely not as polished and working as well as iOS, but take the good with the bad as there are things (some apps as well) with iOS that that are not as good as Android.

    I think device choice is purely personal - if you like the way Android allows you to do things, cool...if you prefer iOS (because lets face it, out the box it just works) fine too IMO.

    Personally I just find iOS...boring...
    I have come to believe that iOS is tested by people who have had a few cocktails, hence the scandal of the prototype left in a bar. It actually is an ingenious testing field which incorporates a different perception of reality. In the end for the end user whether slightly inebriated or sober the end product is the same.

    What other software would you want to install?

    On iPhone you can chose browsers - Safari (which is pretty awesome) or Opera. Can also use online email clients. I believe you can also change the battery on the iPhone4. Also why would you want an SD card slot?!

    The Samsung has a USER replaceable battery, and an SD card slot is useful for expanding storage so you can take more than 10 HD videos with you.

    Also, there are more than 2 browsers which can be used on Android, including Firefox (in beta form).
    Can't think of anything profound or witty.

    Honestly this one is a no brainer, Android + Linux = Winner Chicken Dinner. Get a Samsung Galaxy S3 for the sole reason, the operating system is brilliantly flexible.
