    Phil confirmed the HD is in the hand of VZW testers right now. The phone looks sweet, but it personally hasn't changed my mind of getting the GS2. Maybe because the rumored specs don't warrant a longer wait, or maybe because the Bionic delay is so fresh in my mind... What does everyone else think?

    4g LTE, 4.5", microSD, 8mp 1080p rear, ffc, thin body. my third hand info tells me 720 screen, 4.3", and 2mp ffc, but take it with a grain of salt.

    Since both are Motorola, is probably get it before I would the bionic.

    not sure what you're saying, but the bionic is releasing soon, whereas the HD would likely be released around holiday season im guessing

    They are Motorola because the pic next to the bionic. If the bionic screen is as bad on the bionic as everyone says, id wait. If I get the bionic, Samsung or whatever, I'm not gonna be the first to get one. I wait to see if the bootloader is locked and issues. Motos first LTE phone scares me.

    Still on the Samsung Galaxy S II train. Unless something derails it I'm taking this sucker across country.

    No this hasn't changed my mind because I know this is still a little off. Myy options are still GSII, Vigor, and iPhone 5.

    I'm still up in the air, but I'm leaning towards the GS2.

    I was leaning towards the GS2. Having had the Fascinate & now the Charge, I can say the call quality is quite annoying. I may be willing to give up some Samsung goodness for Moto's awesome call quality.

    Not really. The likely release date is too far down the road, and the spec "boost" over the Bionic and SGSII isn't great enough to hold off for. For those choosing this device specifically because of the screen, remember that it's more than likely to have pentile. The higher resolution should help with pixelation, but it's impossible to tell how much or if it completely solves the issue.

    A little. I am in the camp of seeing the Bionic and S2 in my hands first before I make a decision. But if the S2 is out in September I will probably get that.

    The Droid HD does not seem like much of a spec bump over the Bionic. It will probably have a better screen, a thinner form factor, and better ffc. Other than that I don't see it being leaps and bounds better than the Bionic.

    I honestly think the SGSII is going to be the phone to beat performance wise all year. The Hercules got similar Quadrant scores as the SGSII, but I wonder if it'll perform similarly in real world usage. I also wonder if the SGSII's speed is due to the Exynos processor or really good coding/programming.

    I'd LOVE to know this answer as well. Problem is we have to wait for it to drop somewhere and somebody to benchmark it. Some good hands-on are always nice to see as well.

    Say what you will about the pentile screen, but it will probably increase battery life. It's not as bad as everyone is making it out to be, and it has a great upside.

    That's completely a matter of opinion.

    Moving on... Assuming the GS2 is 4G, that's my next phone, regardless of the Droid HD's existence.

    Guess I'm the one on the grassy knoll? Well since February so probably just a spectator. Anyways the processor should be a big concern to anyone worried about battery and performance... Which is everyone. So exynos would be best case though the Celox 1.5ghz would be speedy but eat lithium ion.

    I'm going to sit on my hands until I have a clear view of the SGS II. I'll look at the Bionic and the SGSII, read reviews and play with them and decide what is the best choice for me...It is quite obvious that this isn't going to be exactly the same phone that has made waves all over the world, so I'll sit in neutral until I have enough information to make a choice...

    Negative you're a grunt worthy of a combat action ribbon. 6 months is a long time to wait. Shows me your crazy like me lol.

    We do need some info on what kind of motor this thing is packing under the hood. Tegra 2? Exynos? Qualcomm?

    Not sure where you got that info, but that's false.

    The new samoled+ screens on the SGS2 are NOT pentile matrix displays.
