June 12, 2021 | Maddy Rowe

The month of September is still dubbed the time when Apple’s iPhone 5 is due to make an appearance, but at the moment there are many other handsets such as the Galaxy S2 to get your head around. First up two phones that have engaged a huge amount of interest, are that of the Motorola Droid Bionic on Verizon and a new one from them, the Photon 4G being carried on Sprint.

To be fair the Galaxy S2 in some countries has now been released and has come with a mixed bag of reaction. There will no doubt be a percentage of you who have had no problems with the handset and class it has money well spent! On the otherhand as we reported yesterday, many of you have taken to social networking site Twitter and voiced the good with the bad, for example, yellow tinges to one side of the Galaxy S2′s screen, WiFi, GPS and so on.

So lets explore all three options. The first is of course the Galaxy S2 for those of you who are still not sure of its specs listing. Firstly it comes with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread OS, 8MP rear camera and so on.

Moving onto the second that of the Droid Bionic with 2.3 Gingerbread. So far we have had a little roller-coaster of a ride with this handset. News has changed in relation to its name with the possibility of it being called the Targa, enhanced features on arrival which is still rumored to be the summer, with new faster processor, bigger 8MP camera, 4.5-inch display therefore topping the scales compared to the Galaxy S2, web top connectivity and dock inclusion.

Lastly the Photon 4G on Sprint which in terms of news is the newest to the bunch. We know that its not due to arrive again until late summer, but so far the Photon 4G is looking like a big contender. Again running with 2.3 Gingerbread, the Motorola will include a 4.3-inch qHD display similar to that of the HTC Sensation, 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 8MP camera, but the possible selling point to this handset, is the global 4G connectivity as well as 3G.

At the present time in countries such as the UK, India, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong and so on, they have or about to experience the Galaxy S2 first hand, for the US that time is still to come. But with the Bionic and Photon to make an appearance in the not so distant future, is it right to say that the game play may change?
