    I have recently purchased Motorola Xprt. I only picked it up because it’s the first android phone by sprint that’s also GSM compatible (I travel so I need it).

    However as soon as I purchased, I saw a much better Photon 4G phone which is sprint’s 2nd GSM android phone.

    Now I am confused whether to return this not knowing when photon 4g will be released. I can only keep my phone for 3 more weeks so not sure if I should return it or keep it.

    Any advise?

    Sam.
