    I'm leaning towards the SII. Screen, processor ,RAM, aesthetics, touchwiz 4.0 a complete package

    I wouldn't worry preach. They clearly have plans for the Galaxy line-up.

    Although Quadrants do not mean much to some People. This phone did not do that well. It scored a 1421. Way below what the Bionic scored...

    I'm in the same position as many of you: which awesome upcoming 4G Verizon Android to get?

    Definitely have been leaning towards the Bionic for the DDR2 RAM, qHD screen, big ol 1930 mAh battery, HDMI out, and Tegra 2 chip. Also, my friend's Droid X takes awesome photos, so I'm assuming the Bionic will meet or beat that.

    The Galaxy II has some sweet specs and a nice form factor, but I figure if I'm going to drop a few hundred bucks on a smartphone, it might as well play my Netflix videos. It's been officially stated that Tegra II and Snapdragon will have Netflix support in the near future. The Galaxy SII might get a Tegra II and might get a Samsung processor, so it's a bit of a crapshoot.

    I'm also quite impatient at this point, as I'm suffering through life with a "dumb" phone:) and I'd like to start a Verizon contract before they take away unlimited data, so I will probably get the Bionic if it comes out first.

    Just my 2 cents. What do you guys think?

    I don't know what you are watching on Youtube but if you do a quick search on Google you can find a bunch of tests from reliable sources like AndroidCentral , Phandroid etc. and you can clearly see the S2 being the winner . Samsung does make some really good processors , don't forget , they make the A4 for Apple and most of the chips and memory modules in other smartphones . The old Hummingbird is still one of the best 1Ghz single core CPU .

    I'm not sure all of the preproduction phones have been optimized for quadrant, or that quadrant is always optimized for the new phones. There's a newer benchmark program called smartbench in the market and it's supposed to be much more updated for new phones (multicore) and looks like it gives a more accurate representation of what your processor is doing. I hope at least one of the moderators checks it out and writes an opinion.:motdroidhoriz:

    The Bionic was not Optimized and scored a higher quadrant then this phone.. All the videos I looked at of this phone have it scoring a low score. If you seen one having it score as high as the Bionic or better... Please Post it!!!!

    If the s2 has an unlocked bootloader the decision will be really easy for me.

    Yup, definitely S2 over bionic in my opinion. Samsung does hardware right, fascinate (ungimped) has been the best hardware in VZW's lineup. Software, now that is a different story. Hope this ends up being true. You seem pretty damned sure CK...hopeful...

    If you look at the Egypt benchmark where the Hummingbird is actually beating the Exynos. Thats a big clue the drivers and software are not up to speed. Exynos is supposed to be 5x as powerful as their last chipset.

    So wait until some production units hit and these numbers will be even more impressive
