    With the "leak" from Verizon that the Bionic and Galaxy S2 will likely be both dropping around May I am having trouble deciding which phone to get. I was set on the Bionic as I like the build of Moto phones, but the specs on the Galaxy S2 have really caught my attention.

    The Galaxy has more ram and a better ffc, but the Bionic seems to have the better processor. Decisions, decisions.

    Exynos is right up there with the Tegra 2....

    TI OMAP, Exynos and Tegra 2 are hands down the best processors in the biz. Can't go wrong with any of them.

    From benchmarks and spec sheet Exynos is superior to Tegra 2 , it has a better GPU , supports DDR3 compared to DDR2 on Tegra 2 and NEON media processing engine .
    Galaxy 2 also has a superior Super Amoled Plus screen that needs less power , has double the amount of RAM . it's thinner , lighter , it has a gyroscope , from previews a better camera , it's not a Motorola .

    I would pick neither. Hold out for stock vzw device. Panda dropped a hint in his last poem. Hears to hoping for vzw nexus.

    You just had to ask me this didn't you? Lol

    This is such a tough call. I was just saying in the mod forums that I was very disappointed that the SII wasn't coming to Verizon but it made my decision easier. Now that its announced I am literally torn betweeen the Targa and SII but i am leaning towards the SII at this moment. This will be the best Android handset of 2011 in my opinion with the Targa right on its heels.

    I just don't know to be perfectly honest. What a hard decision this will be.

    I was staunchly for the Bionic but now after hearing the galaxy s2 is coming to VZW and reading up on the specs, i think i might actually go with the sammy. what do you guys think the dev community is gonna be like for it? and does samsung lock their bootloaders? I literally have no knowledge of samsung phones.
