Samsung Galaxy S2 vs. Droid Bionic, Verizon LTE Winner?

It was thought that Motorola’s Droid Bionic would be the first dual-core handset to use Verizon’s LTE network. But as we reported almost a week ago the handset is being delayed, so what will Verizon customers decide to buy now. The Samsung Galaxy S2 is an impressive looking handset, but is not thought to support LTE.

Comparing the Samsung Galaxy S2 vs the Droid Bionic will consumers choose a Verizon LTE handset as the winner? When Motorola announced the Bionic was being delayed they commented on making several enhancements to the handset. Some think this could be to upgrade the processor from 1GHz to 1.2 GHz.

This is similar to what Samsung has recently done with the Galaxy S2, and with a more powerful processor will bring the Bionic up to the level of the HTC Sensation. There is also the HTC Thunderbolt that might not have a dual-core processor, but it is still a worthy handset.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 besides its processor comes with a 4.27-inch 800 x 480 Super AMOLED Plus display. It also has an 8-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel shooter on the front, and supports 1080p video playback and recording. It will also run on Androids 3.0 Gingerbread.

Motorola’s Droid Bionic has a 4.3-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen, and also has an 8-megapixel camera. But as the handset has been delayed so Motorola can make changes specs must be changing for the better.

So when both handsets are available would having LTE capabilities make you pick the Bionic over the Galaxy S2?

    At this point, whatever comes out first for LTE 4G… and I'm even paying full retail (mid-contract)….I'm sick of my Palm Pre Plus!

    4G makes all the difference in the world. Although I've been waiting for the Galaxy S2, I'd pick the Bionic based simply on the 4G feature (since almost all other factors are fairly equal between the 2 handsets). Why in the world wouldn't Samsung make the Galaxy S2 a 4G phone?

    No 4G means No Sale to me. I'm not signing up for another 2 year contract on 3G in a 4G/LTE world.
