Let's start this with a disclaimer: I do not believe there is significant meaning behind synthetic benchmarks in correlation with real-world use. We've seen, time and again, some high-scoring phones output questionable performance. In this regard, Samsung is one of the usual culprits, and despite having opted for some of the highest spec configurations on each and every one of their flagships, many of them still managed to lag.

Motorola Photon 4G Forums Added
It seems that Motorola enjoyed the success of the Atrix and the Bionic, and went ahead with the release of their latest Tegra dual core equipped mobile device. The Photon 4G is the manufacturer’s latest response to the high demand for 4G enabled devices. The Photon is loaded with many of the same powerful specs that its competitor’s carry: 8 MP camera with HD capabilities, 16 GB of internal storage, 1 GB of RAM, and a huge 4.3″ 540×960 screen for a crisp and clear multimedia experience. Also, it seems that Motorola decided to include a kick stand on the device as well (wonder where they got that idea from). As it is customary with this particular manufacturer, the device is locked, very locked. This sets the perfect environment for our devs to bring ideas to the table to try and unlock it.
So, if you have had a chance to play with one or if you are thinking about the possibility of getting this device, be sure to drop by and read some of the experiences from others as well as catch up on some of the latest developments.
