    Doesn't surprise me that, all else equal, the Bionic won due to LTE. Verizon's 4G is superior to our 4G right now. I prefer my data cheaper and uncapped, however, even if I don't use that much of it.

    Agreed, I would rather wait a few extra seconds for slow data that I can use all day without worrying about overage charges over pricey LTE any day.

    Same here, Im definitely in the power user group as one app I use uses on average around 6GB of data a month. That doesn't even include web browsing and online gaming.

    Is there an app that determines the amount of data you're using a month? I've always been curious what my usage is.

    There's a few something like data watchdog. The app I'm talking about though tells you right in the settings how much data its used.

    The reviewer does not like the cut off corners on the Photon. He is the first person I have heard say this. Everyone I hand my phone to loves the feel.

    Consider the source also....cnet :rolleyes:

    Try "ONAVO Lite". It is free and there is no paid version yet. You tell it your monthly data allowance and it creates a meter to let you know how much you've used. It also tells you which apps use how much data and breaks it down by day. It can also set certain apps to only use data when connected to wifi and alarms you if an app begins to go data crazy. Very cool.

    Verizon's LTE is having some MAJOR connectivity issues and it's gone down at least 3 times this year. It's annoying the CRAP out of people.

    Link to Op-Ed about it.

    Tried this, but a little more complicated than I was looking for. I just wanted an app that I could open up and it would show me the amount of data usage (pulling information from the phone) without my having to set anything up. Not sure if that type of app exists, but the only reason I'm interested in this is out of curiosity.
