    HTC G2 appearance wise look like the Nexus 2, but hardware it's a different beast.

    i just saw this HSPA+ result from androidcentral and i cant believe....

    T-mobile might have the worst coverage, but where i live, it's pretty damage good and comparable to Sprint 4G. But seeing this, it totally blew my mind away. Is it possible??

    The G2 is supposed to have a 14.4Mbps cell connection. So that would be at the absolute top of the range. Seems unlikely unless you're standing under the cell tower in an HSPA+ coverage area. It might be a little bit of a gag. Maybe someone did the test on Wi-Fi then toggled it off for the pic.

    I don't believe in these tests anymore.

    I've been using mobilespeedtest.com's 7MB test for the past few weeks, and I keep getting in the teens range of my Nexus One.

    I've even gone up to 23000+ kbps...

    Just now I got 19512 kbps.

    Something's up.

    Funny thing is, if you read Android Central no one believes that screen shot...imagine if I tried to make a case that I get faster speeds with my N1?

    They'd MAC ban me for life. lol.

    EDIT:

    Alright, so I just used the SpeedTest.net app and it gave me a much more believable number.

    Came out to 2,068 down and 1,323 up.

    EDIT 2:

    MobileSpeedTest.com measures speeds in kilobits, not kilobytes.

    So my 19512 kilobits comes out to about 2400 kilobytes per second.
