    Ill have to go back in this week and retest with pictures. It was definitely a couple MB difference though. The tb was getting in the 20s, and the charge and rfevolution weren't toughing that. Ill reconfirm this week and snoop around.

The processor shouldn't matter and both should be using the same standard Ethernet controller as well. I think an LTE radio should be an LTE radio. I don't think there is such a thing as different LTE speed rated radios.
    Who says the LTE radio is the same. Has anyone verified that the LTE radio in the Thunderbolt is the exact mfg, model, revision as the one in the Charge. Also for the Bionic didn't Motorola decide to make their own LTE radio. I wouldn't think there would be a super huge different in performance but noticeable might be possible.

    Also even with the same exact LTE radio chip, you still have different baseband software between phones. Some phones have received several modem software upgrades that help increase the performance.

    Folks are pointing out the latency with those speeds....didnt notice that before. Guess thats a good thing too. Would that be a modem thing or server thing? Guess its hard to say unless you do side by side tests with 2 phones on the same server?
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    latency is partially dependent on the server. Typically the less distance and step required to reach the server the better ping you will get. If you ping a server in china it's gonna be around 1000ms or more. But two phone side by side hitting the same tower and both using the same test server in my mind is a good comparison.

    Actually my wife has a charge and we have seen speeds up to 36mps. It just depends on the network and when you run the test.

    A Droid Bionic evolved into a Rezound which then evolved into a Nexus! Running whatever Rom I'm feeling for the day.

    Not necessarily. From the Anandtech reviews, it seems like the LG Revolution's LTE radio doesn't perform quite as well as the Charge's did and I think the Thunderbolt as well. The only way to know is to test them in the same location on the same server, though. LG uses their own LG-manufactured baseband for their LTE radio, though.

    Somewhat of an unrelated question, but I'm assuming it will be possible to change the color of the blue status bar.
