    Well, there's no real need to check these forums for the next month or so...

    Thanks to Moto's repeated delays, I'm just going to wait till the Bionic is released, and what ever "super phone" is due out around the same time and make my decision then. I was all ready to pre-order on the 28th but I'm exhausted with this whole process.

    Anyone else in the same boat?

    I may stick around for the released specs and I'll be certainly keeping up with the Prime and that other phone that we can't mention in this section of the forums.

    The September Bionic release has pretty much sealed the deal with me to go with the SGS2, even with a similar launch timeframe.

    Same here. Unless there are huge delays with the SGS2, which is entirely possible, I'll be heading in that direction.

    I'm interested in what information if any we will get Aug 7 from the FCC. I just don't believe the SGSII is coming to Verizon anytime soon. I haven't even heard of FCC docs released yet except for the version going to AT&T. What is the average time that a phone is released after submission to the FCC???

    for me, it still depends on if the sgs2 has lte, which is unlikely. I will get the prime if we see news about it coming soon. I always wanted a nexus...

    You guys gotta realise that there will always be a better phone coming out! You gotta stop the waiting game nd just go with one eventually. I personally am not a huge fan of samsungs, and honestly what's so much better with the GS2 compared to the bionic anyways? They look like the same specs to me! Except bionic appears to have a bigger battery. I'm stickiing beside the bionic

    Well we don't know how big the Bionic battery will be. But the specs are not that far off. GS2 has 1.2 GHZ processor. We don't know but I have a feeling the Bionic will only be 1.0 GHZ, though some would argue that OMAP is better then the tegra 2. GS2 has NFC. Also the super amoled plus would appeal to me more. Biggest advantage to me would be the unlocked bootloader, because i suspect the Bionic's will be locked. But if GS2 has no LTE then I am not interested nor would I wait on this phone if it comes much longer than the Bionic.

    It's probably just as well. Most of the big phones will be released in or by September. We'll get to see how they size up with each other and get the best.

    I would have to agree with this thread.... The Bionic forum has just officially died or is on life support. Just waiting on some more official news to kick it back to life.............

    Bigtime.. wow.. went from refresh every minute to see a new post to.. crickets.

    Oh well, guess that will make the wait go faster since we're not all obsessing over this infernal device here.

    But then again, how long can we really stay away? I'm guessing when Motorola FINALLY lets the cat fully out of the bag we'll see this forum active again.

    What do you mean they crippled it? Because I honestly don't know. I actually have a fascinate.

    Oh big deal. I had the phone debinged & debloated in a few minutes after taking it home. It had sounded like they cripple the hardware in the phone.

    Don't forget all other Galaxy s models had 16 gb internal storage while the fascinete only has 2.

    how long did it take you to get froyo? how's gb looking? that's the big concern i have, and what i thought was meant by "crippling" - the lag in updating the OS.

    Why is the bionic such a god in the phone market right now? I understand the LTE and dual core, but some people are going crazy about it.

    you answered your own question (almost) - it was going to be the only LTE dual core device on the nation's biggest network (at least initially).

    to all those talking about 1.2 vs 1.0ghz it's really just a silly argument. Most likely if the GS2 has LTE they will clock it down to 1.0 to save battery life. The 4430 can run just as stable at 1.2 just as well, if you want more performance and less battery life you can clock it up to 1.2 or down to 1.0 yourselves it's up to you. If I end up getting the gs2, and for some reason sammy decides to use 1.2 as a selling point I will just end up clocking down to 1.0 anyways. The difference in performance of a dual core 1.0 and 1.2 is too meaningless to lose battery life on a phone with LTE. Go try playing with a dual core tegra device, there's absolutely no lag at all, so what the point of putting it to 1.2 if there already is NO lag? Now yes there are tasks every once in a while like backing up with TiBU or a high graphics game, and when that time comes just clock it back up to 1.2.

    I don't know anything about the galaxy s model except for the fascinate version. When I got the fascinate only eclair was the highest version for stock. But a few minutes after I got it home I had a debinged, debloated froyo rom. Eventually I went to a better rom that had a voodoo kernel and it is wicked nice. My point is that with unlocked bootloader and a good developement community you can have a phone that is upside down different from stock. It is amazing how much the oems could learn from the developers. It is hard to imagine the bionic will have this ability or if it will get it in a reasonable time. Moto might unlock it but for all we know it would happen two months before our next upgrade. With all that in mind I still have a strong desire for the bionic. I still think it is worth considering.
