Mashwork put social media to work to figure out whether the Samsung Galaxy S II or Motorola Droid Bionic would be a bigger seller.
They analyzed over 14,000 opinions, and since April 1, interest in the Droid Bionic is diminishing down 11% to 4,738 opinions and the Samsung Galaxy S11 is up 11% with 10,090 opinions. Of course, interest in the Droid Bionic waned after it was delayed.
Mashwork also compared the specs of the two smartphones, claiming that both have rumored mid-July release dates, which we know are wrong. The Samsung Galaxy S II is expected to be named the Function at Verizon, the Attain at AT&T, and the Within at Sprint, with no known release dates, yet. The first Samsung Galaxy S line had staggered release dates. As for the Droid Bionic, the latest news is that it will be on the cover of the August Best Buy mobile buyers guide with a release date later than July.
The Samsung Galaxy S II is also available in other countries under the same name, confusing the sample set further.
It is an unequal comparison because the Droid Bionic will only be offered from Verizon and could be also considered the Motorola Photon from Sprint. The Mashwork specs don't mention that it is now suspected and hinted by Motorola that the Droid Bionic has a larger 4.5" touchscreen, unlocked bootloader and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Reviews are not available yet for either of the models. In the past, reviewers didn't like the amount of "bloatware" carriers added to the Samsung Galaxy S first series of the smartphones, which slowed them down.
What we do know is that both smartphones pack a lot of dual-core power and excitement. Which would you rather buy - Samsung Galaxy SII smartphone or Droid Bionic?
