I know about Hytera. It's the radio I'd be looking at if I was the least bit interested in DMR, but I wouldn't buy any of the others. Chinese radios in general will have to come along way before I'll be interested in buying one.

The discussion here started out about dual band radios.
As for me, I'm gonna wait the six month shake down, like N4KVE said, and buy a dual band CCR.
Yes we can all extol the quality of commercial equipment. I own a couple of XPR's and use them on 440 all the time.
But I just don't want to carry two radios.

Default Comparison of DMR radios

I found a link to this blogger's comparison of DMR radios today. It has a nice table of features for each radio.

I just got an Anytone AT-D868UV in the mail yesterday and so far I'm very impressed. Still have a lot to learn but compared to my single band TYT MB-380 its got tons more features.

For me the software was very intuitive and did everything I needed. I grabbed a premade code plug for my area then added some personal stuff and it was off and running.

I also have the 868, I love it,, every now and then they come out with a bum firmware or a CPS but they correct it pretty fast,
