Don't get me wrong, I love my Storm. I have been using it on unlocked on ATT for a while now. Lately I have seen a few 8900 Curves and thought it might be nice to have one of those as well. Anyway, I dropped by the ATT store today and checked one out.
As I was looking at the phone, I notice how fast it seemed. Most noticeably I saw what seemd to be much faster browser speeds. I checked and made sure the Curve was on EDGE and not Wifi and then cleared the caches. I loaded up a couple of web pages on the Curve to check it out. I then loaded the same pages on my Storm with Crackman's V7.1. It wasn't close. The Curve was more than a few seconds faster.
Has the Storm browser always been an issue and slower? Am I seeing this because the Curve is made for ATT and I am hacking the Storm on to the ATT network? What do you guys think?
Sometimes I question even having this phone since I cannot switch networks and it just does not do everything right all the time. I may go totally back to the Curve 8900 if I can find a deal right now. I am not going to sign a contract for one though with the GSM Storm 2 and Onyx on the horizon.
