Droid Bionic and iPhone 5 the real choice, not Galaxy S2

By Updated on

Right now the hottest phone measured by Internet chatter is the Samsung Galaxy S2, which has been compared with a few devices including the HTC Sensation and iPhone 4. The amount of choice buyers have is unbelievable, and only sets a stage for more confusion when looking for the next “Smart” phone.

Apple’s next phone will be later than usual this year, and is surrounded with rumors, normal for a new iPhone, but this year will be the most competitive yet for Apple and their iPhone 5 (aka 4S) will need to pull out all the stops. The device is said to launch around the same time as the Droid Bionic, a device that is tipped to be the biggest challenger to Apple.

Some comments from our readers have gone as far to call the iPhone a “religious” choice, and not one thought out. We understand that Apple buyers can become extremely loyal to the brand, but this is also built by trust in a product. Apple follow a trend of being late to new technology but aim to release a new device when the bugs are worked out, although the signal problems in iPhone 4 lost Apple that title.

What is the logical choice for a new phone in 2011? Is it the Galaxy S2 (aka S II), iPhone 5 or Droid Bionic?

NFC is a feature some buyers want, although the tech is still very new. The Samsung Galaxy S2 was thought to have NFC in the UK, although this later turned out to be untrue. HTC Sense alone is enough for some people, which leads them with an easy choice of the HTC Sensation.

Motorola say they have listened to “compelling feedback” when designing the DROID BIONIC LTE phone, and they are confident the new functionality will win over many consumers.

So of the three, which will be in your pocket this year?

    What a terrible title for such an uninformative article.  What makes the Droid Bionic and the iPhone 5 the real choices?  I am willing to bet they will both fall short of the Samsung Galaxy S2.

      I highly doubt that the S2 will be able to contend with the Bionic & probably won’t be able to compete with the Iphone 5 either. Tough luck

        Where are you getting your information?  As it stands the Bionic’s specs already fall short of the Galaxy S2 and even though Motorola is promising to beef it up in some areas, it will most likely match the specs of the S2 at best.  As far as the rumored iPhone 5, it is proposed to meet the specs of the S2, however it’s being release 5 to 6 months after the S2.  Fail!

          I agree with KvnJames79 completely. 

          I think Sonny Causey and the author of this article (Daniel Chubb) are being paid to plant such stories online. After all, Facebook tried it by hiring a PR firm to write false stories about Google. It’s really cheap that they resort to such tactics. 
          And the quality of the article is abysmal at best. I think sites such as these need to be blacklisted.

    I guess then the Galaxy S3 slated for this fall is being disregarded?  It will most likely trump both the Bionic and iPhone 5.

    ummm…..so this writer put this unconvincing title for this retarded article, and he didn’t even prove anything in detail. He must be one of the Apple’s special-agent-for-gs2-depopularization-be4-its-launch or something. Sad…
