Although Keaton might have portrayed a slightly better Batman, Bale was the overall best Batman and Bruce Wayne Imho.
His voice didn't annoy me until the 3rd one. But still I get it. To disguise himself and to come across as someone whose out to get people, he has to put on a voice. When the other Batmen didn't really change their voice at all (especially Clooney) that was silly Imo.
I found Bale to be the best. All the last batman films seem pathetic to me in comparison to Bale's batman. Except for the voice. Though its need id understandable it wasn't good for the entertainment aspect of it. Everything he said was made rather comical because of the voice change. Also I think Christopher Nolan's whole take on the films also upped Bale's Batman. His background story of Bruce Wayne and his journey to become batman is what took the series to a new level.
Definitely not a Bale/Nolan fan. I found the movies boring. The only thing that saved the second was Ledger's performance.
Bale was a tolerable Wayne, and an abysmal gravel voiced Batman.
This has put me in the minority since say one, but i'm okay with that.
I really DO respect the movies for what they brought to the genre, but i wont willingly watch them.

I really think it depends on what characteristics we want to compare and what Batman characteristic appeals to you. For me I always liked the mysterious shadowy spooky side of Batman. Therefore as far as looks go Keaton's Batman wins every time, as shown. However as a total package, so taking into account the darkness, the fighting & the action Bale's Batman is for me is better...
