Nexus One vs iPhone 3GS vs Droid vs Pre: The Definitive Comparison

Illustration for article titled Nexus One vs iPhone 3GS vs Droid vs Pre: The Definitive Comparison

If you're looking for the definitive comparison table between the Google Nexus One, Apple iPhone 3GS, Motorola Droid, and Palm Pre, here you have it. From storage capacity to price to plans. Guess who wins (you'll probably be wrong).


My impression is that nobody clearly wins. Each of these phones have their own strengths and weaknesses, but there's still not a definitive one. My favorite is still the iPhone just because the user interface design and the amazing applications—it's not the number, but when you have 126,000 apps, inevitably you are going to have some amazingly good apps in each software category. However, in terms of specs, things are not that clear at all. At the end, it's still a matter of personal preference. [Billshrink—Thanks Ricky]

There's a lot of mistakes on that chart. First of all, the App Store currently has 140,000 apps.


The cheapest iPhone is $99, not $199. The iPhone does multi-tasking for native apps, but not for third party apps. They should specify the difference.

Why isn't the high capacity 32 GB flash option presented for the iPhone? Why the heck is it in parenthesis? And why no Multi-touch category? As we all know, Android doesn't have Multi-touch.

Whoever made this chart was obviously stacking things against the iPhone.
