Hey everyone ...
This is a legitimate "help me out" post - meaning that I'm not ragging on Android or bashing anyone. I really want people to give me some real reasons why I should or should not ditch my Vibrant and/or Android in general.
I made the switch to Android (from a jailbroken first gen iPhone) when the Vibrant came out. Seemed like a kick-ass phone with lots of features and an awesome screen (and since I like to watch movies on my phone, a good screen is nice to have).
However, lately, I've felt that the apps on my phone like to crash alot, or just freeze up the phone period. Apps like The Weather Channel have NEVER worked great - always slow, and loading the Map feature really does crash the app 2 out of 3 times. Yahoo Fantasy Sports (a must-have for Fantasy Football) is very slow (even on wireless) and tends to crash about 2 out of 5 times.
I WANT to like Android - I really do. T-Mobile is a great service, and can't fathom switching to AT&T or Verizon for the iPhone simply because their rate plans are at LEAST $30 per month more than what I'm paying now. But, I can't get over the fact that my Vibrant seems to lag, crash or generally run poorly in instances where the iPhone, even on Edge, seemed to get the job done with less issues (though not very quickly, I admit).
And don't get me started on the battery life. I know it's a crazy-good screen on the Vibrant, but I can't get more than one day (14 hours) out of a charge with normal use. One of the main reasons I ditched the iPhone was the fact that mine was first-gen, so the battery was old and barely made it through a day. Now I'm finding with the Vibrant that I have to plug it in by 9:00 every night anyway.
Talk me out of going back to my first-gen iPhone, guys. Tell me 2.2 will fix some of the lag/crash problems I've noticed, or tell me I have a setting that needs tweaked, or my phone is defective. Tell me SOMETHING that will convince me to keep this Vibrant and keep Android as my main OS.
Thanks for any advice.
