Andrew, the "better" radio depends mostly on individual 
preferences...they all receive, and they all transmit...

A few, maybe10 years ago, five of us from North Shores ARC in San 
Diego tested those two and as I remember a couple of "yaysus", and 
the IC 900 was voted "the best"....

I'm 89, poor hearing, and have been on the ham satellites since Oscar 
7, and have to admit that I favor Kenwoods....

HRO in San Diego let me take several radios home before I chose the 
IC910...perhaps you could do the same...
