Most likely the Bionic, but after waiting this long- why not a couple more weeks to be sure you are happy for two years? Both the Bionic and the Function will be great devices- wait on them both and let the best dual-core monster win!! Would be curious to see which one you would pick!!

Plastic my friend is more durable than metal....and you'd better hope iphone5 is better because SGSII been out for a couple months now. Apples had plenty of time to add more features. Even if iphone5 beats this phone (which i doubt) SGS3 is soon to come my friend so no worries here :)

The Galaxy SII has become almost a mythical creature these days. I mean I have the EVO 3D good phone but thinking about getting the PHOTON 4G for internal memory and better media options. The Galaxy S2 being from Samsung worries me though because of the updates I still have an epic 4g with froyo.
