I got the Storm last night and I have to admit the screen blows away the iPhone. Camera is far better and I like the way the touch screen works. Far better for text messaging.
Battery life blows away the iPhone. I does feel heavy but I think thats is due to the better battery. The sound and screen quality are really far better then the iPhone. Of course this is only one persons opinion but I really like it so far.
OS works fine for me and unlike the iPhone I feel like I dont have to wait for three firmware patches for it to work correctly.
Now that I have this actually in my hand I would have to say the negative reviews at least so far I think are way off.
The touch screen is interesting not sure how well its going to hold up. The entire touch screen acts as one big button, as your fingers scroll across the screen it highlights or buttons just light up and you press. The entire screen moves. Works great just not sure hnow durable its going to be in the long run.
Network feels better then ATT
apple software integration >> all the advantages you just mentioned.
