may i ask where you work and what you do? is it for some droid website or something. and i said that i had an og droid incredible and the battery life sucked that is probably the most comparable droid to an iphone, screen size, processor, and battery size, and the iphone is much better i played madden pretty much all day today and i still have over 20 percent not much over but still i think that is pretty good.
now if you compare something with a much larger screen size and smaller battery then yes that is not a fair comparison, but overall the battery life on all droids is sub par, they need to stop putting out new phones every week and make the things that the user really needs better.
to op, if you like a full keyboard then it is a no brainer to get the droid 3, but that will also add thickness. i think it really comes down to what UI you like best. i always liked IOS and that is why i have one, plus the hardware is so damn sexy.
inb4 hate for glass back and how it breaks easily
