    The 4.5 inch inspire looks so cool, however, running 2.2 is just a downer. Android needs to pick it up a bit in the UI department. The Honeycomb is definitely an improvement, but still can't touch WP7.

    I'm probably gonna get the new Samsung with the 4.5 inch screen but i'll keep my wp7 also. I'm getting used to it but hopefully they get some updates going. Either we all win with ios, android, or wp7(imo).

    I got mine on Sunday and it's nice, but not sure it's nice enough to keep yet.

    I'm holding out for the c&p update, hopefully brings other updates.

    One thing I noticed is the battery drained over night, while I was sleeping. The battery was around 80% or better.

    The touchscreen seems unresponsive at times or lags up. I'll hit a letter , it doesn't show up and two seconds after I hit it again, the same letter pops up twice.

    App wise, all I really need/want is my chase banking app, which was scheduled to come out shortly, but has been pushed back to an unknown time frame.

    The touchscreen responsiveness is the most important part to me having an iPhone, loving it and having a Nexus One and hating it (for that reason). I love the huge screen. I thought the iPhone 4 was perfect in size, but the extra screen realty on the focus is a plus.

    The tiles are nice, but it's almost like an iPhone with push notifications. You get an indicator with how many notifications are waiting for you in app on the icon of the app with the iPhone, so both do the same, differently.

    I don't like comparing either, but some things you do have to compare, especially if it's something you wanted/needed/loved about another phone.

    Only reason I haven't made another device my primary other than the iPhone is because of the touchscreen being so responsive and no other phone having the same amount with an almost perfect auto-correction.

    Being able to check your messages on the phone (xbl) is cool, but until they allow for voice to be heard and recorded, it's not that big of a deal. I can easily bookmark the xbl page in a browser or even certain apps like Raptr for the iPhone.

    I pretty much have all the major platforms out now... WebOS with a Pre, iOS with an iPhone, Android with a Nexus One, BlackBerry OS with a Torch & 9700 and now wp7 with the focus.

    I'm thinking of going back into the store and exchanging the device. Seems a bit sluggish and takes quite a bit of time to load apps.

    Good luck with your choice :) but I think you and I both know there is no perfect phone :( I'm also an ex Android/iPhone/BB user.. and still can't figure out which one I like best. Well, it isn't Android, I do know that much.

    Honeycomb is for tablets only.

    i meant for another focus... my boy has one and never mentions any sluggish behavior.

    i will more than likely keep it, i just may not use it as much or make it my primary if my issues aren't resolved.

    I dont know if they'll ever "allow" for voice to be heard, like I mentioned early XBL party chats and voice messages use a different audio codec. And the notifcation of new messages on the live tile is another + for the OS

    That hasn't actually been confirmed yet, but it does seem to be the case, which is pretty sucky to be honest.

    but that doesn't explain why they wouldn't allow voice to be heard or sent...

    am i missing something? sorry, i'm new to the whole wp7 world.
