Marco Arment on smartphones:
Smartphones have too many subjective criteria, and even the measurable stats don’t always yield a definite answer on what’s better. If you want a huge screen, you’ll get a huge phone, so is a larger screen size a good thing or not? Fast 4G network access kills battery life, so is 4G a good feature for you? Do you want the best normal camera, or a lower-quality 3D camera? Do you want any particular apps or games that are only available on one platform? Do you need a kickstand? (Do they still make those?) These all depend on your priorities.
Emphasis mine. When people ask me if they should get an iPhone, I always tell them that I can’t answer that for them. Choosing a phone is way to much of a personal choice that depends on personal factors. The things I would rang with highest importance are not likely the same things someone else might.
