    someone stole it off my Desk at work when i went on a Smoke break. and so many people work in my building , its impossible to know who it was. :( even with *find my phone* it gave me like a 20mille radius ( where it so happens that half the employs live ) and dint have strong enough proof to accuse any one :(

    Don't forget to account for non-square pixels, which is actually quite common.

    has anyone else ever gotten rid of their windows phone or picked up something else and just ended up missing it?

    Yes, twice. Once for the Atrix and the second time for the Galaxy S II. I came back both times.

    I've thought about going back to an iPhone, but then I used my iPad or iPod touch, saw the grid, and thought "wow, this is boring as ****."

    Good point. I would like to bring up, the iPhone display is among the most "fat" aspect ratios. 960x640 (~ 16:11 or something around that). Vs the common qHD on android phones of 960x540 (16:9). Also vs the 800x480 (~16:9.5).

    So maybe if they made the screen narrower and taller, it would be "larger MOAR INCHEZ," lol :P Based on rough quesstimate math, it's about the same area as an 3.8" 800x480 display, and nearly the same surface area as a 960x540 4" display :)
    Resolution has nothing to do with screen area. A iPhone 3.5" screen has a surface area of 5.25" sq. A 3.8" screen, regardless of resolution, has a surface area of 6.27" sq., and a 4.3" screen a surface area of 7.998" sq. The Titan's 4.7" screen has a surface area of 9.56: sq. The Titan's screen has 82% more viewing area than an iPhone.

    I was thinking of getting a Vivid because of the LTE support. Went to look at it twice, once at an ATT store, once at Best Buy. Both times the phone crashed in my hand and had to restart. ATT I tried to open one of the native apps (don't recall which) and at Best Buy I hit the home button. That kept me from switching.

    That is not exactly true. For the sake of what I think is being discussed here. Screen resolution has a direct correlation to the aspect ratio, which in turn affects the dimensions of the screen. In this way, resolution does also affect screen area because of their relationship to one another.

    This is exactly why Samsung can fit a 3.7" display into a form factor that is almost exactly the same as the iPhone 4. I had both (returned Flash for a Focus S) and did a direct comparison. The overall dimensions are so close it's scary. The width of the screens are almost identical but the Flash is taller in portrait mode.

    Also, just measuring the viewing area could be misleading as well. If you have a large screen at a low resolution, you could actually fit less information on the display than a smaller screen with a higher resolution.

    I do get your point, but I think he was just trying to say that aspect ratio can adversely affect screen size. In marketing, we all know reality is not as important as how it looks or sounds. Just look at all the people who claim that WP7 needs a dual-core to be competitive. That is truly being a slave to marketing. A little research sometimes goes a long way.

    Lol, I love Apple, and would of bought an iPhone 4 (I don't like the 4S for some reason!?), but the small screen is actually a turnoff. High resolution, low screen real estate. Sort of how I prefer 14" 1366x768 display over 11.6" 1366x768 display :(

    That, and except for sharper texts, I feel the 3.5" display forced Apple to basically waste space on the ultra-high resolution of the Retina display.
    I've had the iPhone 4 since day 1 and now I've had the Titan for a week. I love both of them but if I had to get rid of one, it would definitely be the iPhone. It's a great phone, and I highly recommend it to anyone who asks, but I've had an iPhone for 4 years and the interface hasn't really changed much in that time. Now I just find it boring and Windows Phone is exactly what I'm looking for.

    I'll have to agree here. For the majority of the past years, I've been using iPhones. Tried a few phones in between such as Blackberries and Palm Pre (best OS software at the time before HP acquired, but lacked hardware). Always went back to the iPhone.

    Bought a used Focus over a week ago and used it for a week when I got some water damaged to the battery so I had to use the iPhone 4 that I kept around. Was not happy at all. I loved the screen on the Focus. The colors and deep blacks. The completely different OS. I'll be getting my replacement battery tomorrow and can't wait to get back into the Focus and WP7. I'll still have the iPhone 4, as a back up and music player lol

    Not hating on the iPhone or iOS but after many years, I'd like to try something completely new and WP7 was it. I'd still recommend an iPhone to anyone who has never owned one but I'd also suggest a WP7 of course.

    I'm surprised that Apple hasn't changed the look of the OS very much at all since its inception. The word on the street is that next year will finally bring a significant overhaul to iOS.
