Hey, im not sure if any of you noticed but i had a nexus one which was a great phone! but it seems the vibrant is much fast when loading pages and pulling in data on edge and 3g. It's hard to explain what i mean but it's just a little more powerful. anyone else notice this? when you download apps, especially on 3g.. it's like #pow! and installed... very zippy!

just wanted some opinions. I can't wait until a real rom is generated for this phone and they create a 3200 mah battery for this. IM BUYING IT lol

Also yall should try Skyfire browser from the market and set your browser to open as Desktop rather than android or iPhone. Even on edge, the pages open so fast!

check it out!

yea, the data seems quite zippy on the phone, even if the speed readings are a bit inconsistent. I did hit 5 Mbps in pasadena yesterday tho.

I too came from a n1 and yes this beats it in speeds. Even on edge with no bars is faster than my n1 with 2 bars... I just wish the signal bars wasn't wacky. Its throwing my thinking off...lol

The phone takes advantage of HSPA. That's probably what you're seeing.

Sent from my Vibrant using XDA app facing north...no, wait. southwest.

Coming from the Slide I couldn't even use the browser on Edge but on this Vibrant its really quick on Edge and I don't even need to switch it to 3G. Definitely a difference.
