    Customizing your own IPhone according to your personality and taste is better than having an ordinary design because it will show what type of person are you when it comes to your equipment or gadget.

    Iphone still looks like being ahead in terms of design and applications. Android is catching up though and variety plus pricing should make droids work out better for the masses. The speed of development is great with both systems though and the applications contain anything from slot machines to angry birds – so user enjoy the benefits of fierce competition.
