Best Android Phone on ATT?
I am sick of this iPhone and want an Android based phone, which is the best as far as durability, quality, and spec wise that they offer right now?
The 2 that i have been looking at are the Samsung Captivate and the HTC Aria?
Is there one i missed, or what is your opinion on these 2 phones?

The Captivate is better than the Aria in my opinion, captivate is 1ghz proc. and ari is 600mhz , not saying that is the only thing to consider.
the captivate screen is much better, Aria is very tiny, which makes texting and surfing not so enjoyable, but since the screen isnt that great the processer speed makes it pretty quick since it doesnt need to work as hard.
But just on Screen size alone 3.2 vs 4" ,,plus the fact its Super AMOLED is a huge difference, and from the reviews i heard the Aria chews through battery. so if i am going to have to choose between two devices, it would be the Captivate hands down

I like the larger size of the captivate and the overall specs but am not a huge fan of touchwiz. Tough choice. Both are good phones. If I had to choose I would switch carriers.LOL. seriously I guess I would pic the captivate based on the overall specs of the phone.

I just got the captivate, had an iphone, the captivate has stunning hd vid and is speedy and way more options, however the gps is a little off but that doesnt bother me because I dont use it anyways, got one in my truck if I need one..but IMO the captivate is there best option now...

If it helps any, I was a very loyal blackberry user who just converted to the vivid. I love it and will never go back. My kids have apple and this phone (and os) does so much more than apple can do. My opinion of apple is that they r for lemmings and ppl who really want it plug n play and don't want to tweak things. I love tweaking and customizing. I am very happy with my vivid. Only complaint is battery life. But unlike apple, I can switch mine out.

However, when you want to actually do things with it beyond the basic that's where the realization sets in that "Oh, I can't do that because it's an iPhone".
Don't get me wrong, I own an iPhone 4, but it simply for my uses can't do what I need it to do and can do with my GNex.
Back on topic though, probably go for the Note. I'm personally against it due to its size (like the Dell Streak it's too small to be a tablet yet too big to be a phone IMO) but if you don't wanna pay for a GSM GNex, do it. That, or "maybe" the One X.

"it just works" seems to be the apple user's programmed reply. I have been told it over and over again. I want to set things to work the way I want them to work. Truth be told, I enjoy it. As for battery, if my daughter's apple is an example (just got a new one) my vivid holds a charge longer than hers. She has to have it plugged in much of her time at home. And still, I can swap out my battery if need be.
