    Compare Character Count (LEN) between 2 cells

    I need to compare character count between 2 cells with a simple TRUE/FALSE result. For example, if A1 has 8 characters and A2 has 8 characters, A3 would be TRUE. Variations of the following doesn't seem to work and I'm stuck:

    A1: jfmd773udi
    A2: pik83tq2zx
    A3: TRUE

    =if(LEN(A1),LEN(A2),"TRUE","FALSE")

    A quick formula would be appreciated!!
