Default Tour/Javelin comparisons

Please Login to Remove!

I own both the Javelin and the Tour and am a little disappointed in the Tour it seems slower than the Javelin. I know they are different sizes but the Tour feels much larger. Would love to have anyone's opinion on what their experience has been.

Could it be the different OS versions? ... Hardware spec wise aren't the two incredible similar?

I happen to like the 8900 running on AT&T much better then the Tour. Reason being, it's just seems to have a little more pep when scrolling around and what not. Apps open up instantly, and the phone is just dead on as clear as you can get. Size wise is not an issue for me, Tour is a little thicker, but still feels good in the hand. The rubber sides and carbon fiber on the Tour are cool as well. However I'd take the 8900 over the Tour because of call quality issues with the Tour, and because the 8900 never presented any real sluggeshness, even out of the box. Curious to see what others have to say, but it's going to be scarse, because you would have to have 2 lines since the 8900 is GSM, and the Tour is CDMA.

Just my 2 cents... But I would think a CDMA 3G BB would have more pep then a GSM one running on edge. Very interesting!
