    Hi all, I am up for an update in June and will probably be going to school out of the country next year, so a global ready android seems to be the best option for me at the time. Will either of these phones have dual-mode capabilities? LTE is a requirement for me, as my city will have coverage when I return in March, otherwise I would happily buy the Inc 2.

    I'm actually a big Apple fan, but playing with my friends Droid Charge the other day, as well as my above dilemma might have convinced me to change (while I haven't ever even owned a smartphone :eek:).

    Also, I am trying to find differences between the Bionic and Galaxy. Is there one that comes better equipped than the other, UI's aside?

    There is really no world phones with gsm/cdma/lte in the works nor will be available in a long time. Frequency and technology is simply too fragmented for a solid world phone to be created. With carriers moving to 4g technologies, the markets will only become harder for 1 phone, then easier. Sorry, but that is how the technology works.

    The latest bionic stats has it as a solid cmda, and samsung has really gotten out of the dual phone market, think the last one was in 2008.

    Personally, I would go to the country you are living in, buy a phone there.

    If you insist on getting a new phone before you leave, I would go with the samsung.
