    Anyone know which has the lowest memory consumption, and which has the highest power consumption? Or something like that?

    Thanks

    Android=Linux, just with some proprietary and custom UI stuff going on.

    Currently, I'm sure that running stock iPhone OS will give you the best battery life. I'm not sure about the space each take up.

    Well from my personal experience Android's battery seemed to drain a little bit more then what my iDevice does. It really depends though. If you have a big theme on your iDevice your battery is going to suffer. If you have Android running the new Sense UI then it is going to drain more.

    There's a huge difference.

    I know that some armature builds of Android for non-android devices have problem with battery measuring, you should check it out
