    The SGS2 is coming to where in August? Verizon? Not bloody likely. Will it have room in it's anorexic casing for an LTE radio? Not bloody likely.

    Pass.

    Only if the SG2 is 4gLTE. If It is, its going to be a tough decision. If its only 3g, for me its a no brainer, its Bionic all the way!

    I've had very good luck with Moto over the last 10 years or so. They would have to beat me away with a stick.

    Only the sprint version has been leaked. And samsung just introduced the Charge...so, who knows if verizon is up to it. Besides, Verizon is still waiting on Samsung updates...which are almost are almost non-existent.

    Considering Verizon's track record of releasing phones and the current battle Samsung is dealing with (thanks Apple), don't expect a release on Verizon before 2012. The S2 will also not support Verizon's 4G LTE network unless they have completely redone the phone. So no, it will not challenge the Bionic in sales.

    I don't trust Samsung with their slow update process. Moto has been bad about delays in the past but they have updated devices very well.

    I know the SGSII is supposed to be more metallic, but I don't like the plastic that Samsung uses for their phones. Especially the variants on VZW.

    It's the Bionic for me all the way!

    No LTE for the SGII I bet, and that makes it a no brainer for the Bionic. Still, Motorola would be making a mistake of epic sizes if they let the Galaxy SII beat the Bionic out on the market.
