MSNBC has released the results from a comparison test (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/41485079/ns/technology_and_science-wireless/)of a handful of upcoming and current 4G Android smartphones. Based strictly on speed alone, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G emerged as the winner with an average peak download speed of 7.81Mbps. AT&Tís HTC Inspire 4G came in last, but the EVO Shift 4G made a valiant effort to claim the bottom spot.
You will notice no Verizon 4G phone makes the comparison. Once you throw LTE into the mix, we get the feeling the scales may tip in that direction. While this bodes well for the Galaxy S 4G, head over to our in-depth look at the current state of 4G Android phones (http://phandroid.com/2011/02/04/which-4g-android-phone-is-best-4g-wars/)to see where we rank it.

Thing about Verizon is that they may not have the peak download speeds that AT&T and other HSPA+ carriers have, but they have far more consistent coverage with more consistent data rates as well.
