    Not sure I'm ready to say that the GS II beats the Bionic, since it has not been officially established whether the Verizon version of the S II will have LTE. If it does have LTE, then it appears to match up well to the Bionic.

    Hardware aside, I'm curious as to whether the Moto UI will truly be significantly improved over previous Moto phones.

    Not only do we not know if the U.S. GS2 will have a Tegra 2 or Exynos....now there is rumors the T Mobile version might have a Snapdragon....

    Samsung Hercules confirmed as a T-Mobile Galaxy S II variant -- Engadget

    And I'm still waiting for these benchmarks where it destroyed the Droid 3...and that one Antutu benchmark someone put up of the Bionic ..looks to me the Bionic is a close 2nd in that specific benchmark.

    If the Bionic gets better reception....that wont be better in all ways. Sometime we have to look at the overall picture...not just the glitz n glamor.

    you guys crack me up with this GSII talk of how it wipes the floor with the Bionic. You don't even know what it's gonna have in it. To wait and see is very smart but to automatically assume it is so much better than the Bionic is really just sad. No LTE and most of you won't get it and the ones that do will probably hold on to it no more than a year. The Bionic has specs that will carry people for 2 yrs with no problem.
    So what Im saying is don't come on the Bionic thread ranting how the Bionic sucks and the GSII is the S*** if you don't even know what the S*** is.

    If verizon does get the GSII, do you honestly think they'll somehow make it worse potermac?

    If not, then yes we do know what it does already. It's been tested against the Bionic and it's beat it by 10-20%. Check the benchmarks done by beta testers.

    the only way the bionic could beat the gs2 would be if they really dumbed it down alot cant see why it wont be 4g guess we gotta wait a few weeks and see

    That's what I am saying. Wait and see. And do you really thing benchmarks will even be noticed in day to day use. The GSII will not be noticeably better than the Bionic. That I know for sure. With the Bionics specs it will definitely be a powerhouse ( unless it's a dud of a phone) Haha

    ok lets agree to disagree lol and if we wanna go by rumors they were also talking about bumping up the processors just to compete with the iphone5 which is supposed to drop around the same time so let us wait and see

    Don't take this wrong, because I agree with you benchmarks are about worthless.

    But, the GSII is over 3 months old now and it will be 4 months old by the time we get the Bionic and when the Bionic is released, the GSII will out perform the hardware in the Bionic.

    A 4 month old device in a lower price range, beating a flagship device

    The Bionic will probably be an amazing phone, I'll probably end up getting it myself to be honest, but we can't just ignore the facts.

    Sorry all, Carlie my dog pissed in my cheerios this morning. I think I am just stressed also because my D1 is getting worse by the day.
    One thing I was thinking about with the Iphone is if it did come with 4g, wouldn't that hurt at&t considering verizon has a way better lte market? Would apple do that to them?
