I haven't used an Android but the people at work who have personal ones say they like them but find that they are buggy and need to be restarted frequently. The ones that have them like them because they can tinker more with them but even they say we shouldn't support them. It reminds me of the people who want to build their own PCs.

We don't support Android because of malware, lack of controls, and poor security model.

I know people complain about no LTE on the iPhone but all the LTE phones have horrible battery life. I'll be more excited about LTE when it is more widely available. Right now it is pointless unless you live in one of the areas that have it.

The iPhones prior to the 4 had minimally acceptable battery life but the 4s are very good. For people who want even more extended life there are very nice battery packs that the iPhones slip into. These add a surprisingly small amount of weight and size and are very comfortable. I don't use them because I find the battery life to be plenty for me.

I think the defining features of the iPhone 4S are the improved performance and Siri voice features. If Siri just proves to be speech to text like Dragon Naturally Speaking or the feature on Android phones then it won't be a big deal at all. However, if it is more like the IBM Watson computer that won on Jeopardy then it will truly be revolutionary. I won't really be able to know until the 4S is out and I can try it.

I think the 4S is a lot better than you describe.
