So, I was google searching to dig for more information on the Photon (particularly other "deals" out there) and I came across a thread that was started in the lounge regarding a comprehensive benchmark: http://androidforums.com/android-lounge/360485-nenamarks-mysterious-androids.html#post2860698 One of the "mysterious" androids is the Photon 4G (MB855). I really don't know how good Nenamarks is at really determining speed, but thought I'd post since I know many were interested in this. The Photon didn't do "bad," but it didn't necessarily do too well compared to some of the other "new" phones. Droid 3, Sensation 4G, Optimus 2X, SGS II, Nexus s. http://nena.se/nenamark/view?version=2 Benchmarks really don't matter to me (obviously because the initial benchmarks for the EVO 4G weren't that great either). What matters most to me is 1 year down the line or even 2 years down the line, I just hope the phone performs with just as much (or even slightly less) speed as it had right out of the box.
