    I agree that Sense is heads and shoulders above the rest. It adds so much to the Android experience. I just don't know if I have the patience to wait for a LTE dual core HTC device (other than the TB). There's nothing on the horizon and I'm so ready to move on from my D1. But I may be able to wait.

    Sense is nice but the problem is it is getting huge. 3.0 on the Evo 3d takes up more than half of the 1gb ram out of the box.

    Samsung Exynos vs OMAP 4 vs Nvidia Tegra 2: Benchmarked

    There. OMAP 4 wins majority of the benchmarks.

    Since the Sprint version, the Within, is going to have Wimax, wouldn't the Verizon version, Function, have LTE? I think it's the only way to really compete between the different carriers. I mean, if you had to choice between Sprint WiMax and Verizon 3G, I know I'd go for the WiMax...

    I agree with this guy ^

    Until I can get my hands on both phones and actually use them I won't say that one is better then the other. It will however sway my opinion some if the SG2 doesn't have LTE. So unless I totally hate the Bionic then I would go with it. But again we will see. Sounds like they might be coming out around the same time as well. Exciting time for smartphones. dancedroid

    As far as benchmarks are concerned, keep in mind screen resolution. The lg optimus 3d benches higher than the droid3 with the same chipset. Most sources say its likely due to lower screen resolution.

    "4g" for other carriers i'd say is likely, but LTE is not. The droid3 has a "4g" version in canada, but its still not lte.

    is GS2 ram ddr1? Will be interesting to see the difference with similarly clocked cpu's with the differing ram types (assuming bionic will be 4460)

    The Samsung Galaxy S II, or Function is definitely on my list. I have read all the speculation on if it has 4G or not, but I can’t justify it because of size.
    If Samsung can fit 4g into the Charge, they could definitely fit it into the Function. The Charge is 4.16 oz and at .46” thin is one of the thinnest/lightest smart phones available.
    By the way, the Thunderbolt is the heaviest at 6.23 oz and the thickest at .56” (even the new Droid 3 with its slide out keyboard is thinner and lighter).
    It will be interesting to get both the Bionic and the Function final specs and compare them.

    Yea so the OMAP4 is faster when clocked at the same speed, and when they have the same resolution.

    Damn! So, are you telling me that the Evo 3D comes with 1gb of RAM but only half of it is useable to the phone owner?!?!?

    If that's the case, HTC needs to start upping the internal storage.

    I was thinking they need to cut more fat off Sense. Lol.

    A few extra seconds..that's what happened when my buddy who just got a t-bolt and I did a comparison. I'm due for an upgrade in 3 weeks and I was checking the LTE speed vs. 3g. He runs a t-bolt and I have an OG Droid. We both loaded google and went to the same website at the same time. His phone beat mine by about 3 seconds. We did that for about 8 different websites and it was pretty consistent every time. Granted...I don't need 4G, I get online on my phone maybe 2 or 3 times a day to check scores, the weather or what not...so 4G to me is not a deal breaker. I would rather be able to move through my apps and my phone quickly rather than move over the internet quickly, but that is just me. My buddy lives on his 4G for his work, so LTE is a benefit to him....me, not so much. It is all a matter of preference.
