CNET pits the HTC DROID Incredible against the iPhone 3GS and determines that the Incredible is "The best phone we've seen". The kicker, just like I've been saying since the release of the iPhone, was call quality. Going into the final round, the phones were essentially tied in terms of overall features, construction, performance, etc. It was that crappy AT&T network that lost the iPhone the top spot. That's the #1 reason why I don't own an iPhone. Of course there's about 10 other reason that are just as important to me, but the #1 reason is still that it runs only on the horrible AT&T network. 

Check out the full prizefight on YouTube.

I must say that the Droid Incredible has many advantages over the iPhone 3GS that were not even mentioned in the review, so I think the Droid Incredible really beats the pants off the iPhone 3GS. The new version of the iPhone released today is a different story. Supposedly it has some major improvements in speed, multitasking, and battery life. IMHO, battery life is the only advantage the iPhone currently enjoys over the Droid Incredible.

Since day 1 of the iPhone's release I've been saying that the #1 problem with it and most other cell phones these days is that they are terrible at their primary purpose of voice communication. They've essentially taken something that used to be a reliable and sometimes pleasant experience on landlines and turned it into a crapshoot that actually causes anxiety to the point that I think we need a new classification for "communication anxiety", defined as the anxiousness caused by not knowing if you will be able to complete a conversation with someone over a given communications medium.  Anyway, that's a whole other topic.
