So I am having a small dilema .... And I would like your input

I have a smartphone (Sony Xperia U) BUT I also have a spare iPhone (3GS) at home.

Touchscreen is not something that comes naturally to me but I do know that its the future and soon everything will be touchscreen, so I might as well start getting used to it.

So, which phone will people recommend? An iPhone or Android? (I am very simple when it comes to phones - all I need it to be pretty and be able to send a message and call - checking my email is ok, but not a must)

Hello Goodbye:
KE, last December I made the "quantum leap" from a cellphone to a smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 920.  I had to because it was necessary to link to my computer in my office to access patient files, write notes in hospital charts, send prescriptions, receive pages while on call, etc.

The nokia Lumia is a Windowsphone which is compatible with the electronic record system used at my hospitals.  I like how it syncs with my office computer.  I was able to get used to the touchscreen very quickly.  But I understand how you feel.  I wish I could go on using my cellphone for just telephone call the way I did in the past.  Things are changing rapidly and i think you'll enjoy being able to use GPS, email, text and browse the internet, and take pictures with your smartphone.  Your SONY smartphone is highly-rated and you should be having fun with it.

I prefer Android to iphone, Im not keen on Apple products as you seem to have to go through itunes to move things around

apple products are good though its just I prefer to work with android

I have a Samsung Galaxy and a Samsung Galaxy Tablet 2, more than happy with them.

My experience is that Windows and Apple-products are not going together very well. I bought an iPod some years ago and found out that I could only upload songs via iTunes. And iTunes is a very complex program in my opinion. I found it very difficult to get the songs I wanted on the iPod in the way I wanted it. I am working with a Android phone (HTC Sense), a simple thing but it works well and goes well with Windows.

I agree with you Cor, I put movies straight onto my android very easily, just grag & drop , it works just like an external hard drive, but when Ive tried to do it on my wifes Apple's I end up frustrated due to itunes, Im just not 'Apple minded' I guess.

Also a big drawback to iphone/ipads for me is the fact that they have no SD slot so A) they are not expandable memorywise and B) its harder to load stuff into the memory
