iPhone 4 Not For You: Four Android Alternatives

Apple’s new iPhone 4 – which was revealed on Monday during the WWDC 2010 Apple keynote – may “change everything,” but that doesn’t mean that it’s the phone for everyone. It may feature a slimmed-down profile and a high resolution “retina display,” but it lacks in other ways.

As reported in an interesting networkworld.com article by JR Raphael, just like previous iPhone incarnations, the iPhone 4 lacks an open and uncensored app market, customization controls and other features that are available on Android-powered alternatives.

Over at networkworld.com, they have compiled a list of four solid iPhone 4 alternatives, which is based on PCWorld’s in-house mobile phone reviews. And the handset at the very top of the list is the HTC Droid Incredible, which is currently PCWorld’s top ranking smartphone.

This phone features a 3.7-inch AMOLED display, runs on a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and an 8-megapixel camera. It ships with Android 2.1, but is apparently expected to be upgraded to Android 2.2 sometime in the future. Next on the list is the HTC EVO 4G.

The HTC EVO 4G is one powerful phone, and offers the promise of superspeedy 4G data speeds. It features an 8-megapixel camera in the back, and a 1.3-megapixel camera at the front. But the most distinguishing feature has to be its 4.3-inch, 800×480 WVGA display.

The Google Nexus One – which features a 3.7-inch, 800×480 AMOLED display and a 5-megapixel camera – is also on the list of alternatives, as is the Motorola Droid. The Motorola Droid features a 3.7-inch display, a slide-out keyboard and runs on a 550MHz processor.
