US Galaxy S II (S2) vs Droid Bionic: August Release, Your Pick

Finally, news that many Americans had been waiting for, came through yesterday that the Samsung Galaxy S II (S2) smartphone will be released despite rumor that it would not land at all. Over the last few months we’ve been bringing you as much information as possible in relation to the Galaxy S2 to keep you in the picture, be it comparisons to help you make that important decision, speed tests, accessories, which retailers to go to and so on.

Other countries such as the UK, Korea, India, Australia and many more are now reaping the benefits of the new Sammy offering but another due to release the same time may steal the coveted crown away. Bring on the Motorola Droid Bionic.

Both smartphones have already been put side by side but as the month of August looms upon us, it brings us to question what handset you will be purchasing? Just yesterday, Matt here at OSM spoke about the Samsung coming sometime next month and the Droid Bionic is rumored to be coming August 4th so if true, the Bionic may head out before the Galaxy S2.

This morning we brought you news that a leaked Motorola page had been spotted which was advertising the Bionic as well as a price of $299.99, this brings it into line with the Samsung Droid Charge. The page will be live the first week of August and with an official tweet from Motorola just a short while back stating that the Bionic was on course for arrival, it finally looks like the months of waiting are now nearly over.

Its a job to know how both handsets will fair in what is becoming a frenzied smartphone war, the Galaxy S2 and Droid Bionic specs if they do not change will include a 4.3-inch screen, 8MP rear camera, again if not tampered with 1.2GHz dual-core processors, but if we take a closer look at the Motorola there are other temptations to consider. For example touch sensitive controls, accelerometer sensor, fantastic biometric fingerprint reader and Motoblur UI, big 1930mAh battery all of which at times are overlooked.

Tell us what your money’s on? Would you prefer the Galaxy S2 or the Droid Bionic for the taking? Or are you a Apple fan in which case you may be waiting for the new iPhone 5?

    I’d prefer the SGS2 if it is 4G but I’ll go with which ever one hits the market first.

    THIS ARTICLE IS ERRONEOUSLY CITING THAT THE ALLEGED LEAKED DROID BIONIC PAGE IS REAL. IT IS FAKE! REAL QUICK WAY TO TELL IS LOOK AT THE FINE PRINT ON THE BOTTOM OF THE DROID DOES “LEAKED” IMAGE. YOU’LL SEE, “SAMSUNG” WRITTEN THERE. IT IS EVIDENT THAT SOMEONE USED THE SAMSUNG DROID CHARGE WEB PAGE AND DOCTORED IT.

    I waited this long and would have taken a S2 a month ago, but now I kind of think of it as old technology handed down from India and Europe. Hoping that the Bionic or iPhone 5 will blow it away. So will wait for them. Unless we get an updated S2 with something new.
