Both Droid Bionic and Galaxy S2 Epic Touch 4G were recently launched. Both these Android-powered smartphones claim to have high-end software and hardware specifications.
While the Droid Bionic is priced at $299.99 on a two year contract with Verizon, Sprint's Epic Touch 4G is available for $199.99 on a two-year contract.
Here is a list of 5 reasons why Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic Touch 4G will outclass Motorola Droid Bionic.
The Droid Bionic sports a 4.3-inch qHD TFT display compared to Galaxy S2's 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display feature. In definition, qHD, a super LCD, refers to the resolution of a screen which, in this case, is 960x540. Super AMOLED plus are types of displays that stands for Super active matrix organic light emitting diode.
The Super AMOLED Plus displays have the ability to produce dark, rich, black levels and known for highly saturated colors. Moreover, while the edges are finer, text is sharper which makes it easier to read. The viewing angles in an AMOLED display are better as compared to qHD LCD display.
The Samsung Super AMOLED Plus at 180 degrees, reportedly, has the widest viewing angle compared to Super LCD's 160 degrees. A super LCD screen, as per quality, is better but fails to deliver the same experience as that of a Super AMOLED Plus or Retina display. The ability to reproduce colors and sharpness is also better on a Super AMOLED Plus screen.
As per the pricing of both the devices, the Galaxy Epic Touch 4G is cheaper than the Motorola Droid Bionic. The Samsung-made smartphone, which has comparatively more powerful features and specs, is at least $100 cheaper than the Bionic. Many retail giants are also offering the Epic Touch 4G for much cheaper price compared to Motorola Droid Bionic.
Both Droid Bionic and Galaxy S2 boast 1 GB RAM 16 GB storage, 1080p video capture support, 8 MP camera and powerful battery to complement the 4G speed. However, Epic 4G has a faster dual-core processor compared to Droid Bionic's 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP4430 chipset processor.
The Droid Bionic offers tiered data plans although it has powerful 4G LTE network. According to a previous Nielsen Co.'s analysis, data hungry consumers are on the rise and iPhone and Android users have downloaded apps, watched video or mobile TV and streamed online music in almost equal magnitude.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Epic 4G Touch is featured in Sprint's network. The smartphone, when combined with Sprint's unlimited data plans, will provide a powerful Internet for the customers on the ground-breaking multimedia phone.
Whereas the Epic Touch 4G has NFC (Near Field Communication) support, Droid Bionic lacks this feature. The NFC feature allows wireless exchange of data over distances of a few centimeters. This means that mobile phones can be used to pay for goods, store electronic tickets, download music and swap photos and business cards.
NFC is actually regarded as a replacement for bank cards we currently use, and making the smartphone a method of payment for purchases.
