    I currently have an iphone 3GS with ATT and my contract is up. I'm anxious to get the hell away from ATT and get onto Verizon.

    I was thinking of getting the Thunderbolt, but decided to wait for one of the dual-core phones (I had my eye on the Samsung Galaxy S2, which looks like a monster). Now all the dual-core phones seem to be getting delayed...or, the ones that are coming out are inferior to the Thunderbolt in one important way or another (for example, smaller screen - a big screen is important to me).

    So my question is: Is it worth it to wait for a dual-core phone? Exactly how big of a difference would I see between a Thunderbolt and a dual-core? What would I be missing out on, specifically? Is it just the speed at which applications open?

    Re: Single vs. Dual Core Processors

    When I was messing around with the bionic at CES it honestly didn't seem that much faster than the thunderbolt. (keep in mind that the unit I had didn't have the final software on it) This is because programs aren't coded to take advantage of both cores yet. The only way you're going to see better performance is when you are doing multiple things at once and you have a lot of programs running. You may see better performance from applications that use a lot of CPU power as well.

    I was wondering about the same thing. Thanks tavenger5 for clarifying that.

    I have just read from an article that the LG Optimus 2X is now Guinness World Records first dual-core smartphone. Looking at the phone's specs on timtechs it actually looks nice. Have you considered this model yet?
