    And dual core seems cool and all, but I'm not sure how much it would actually benefit me, over losing HTC
    Well what happens if you lose HTC? and honestly, I would go in and ask someone in the closest verizon store and see if they can do anything for you.
    Edit: Oh wow for some reason my brain completely missed the HTC sense > Blur.
    Have you seen the new videos of the Bionics blur? Most don't even call it blur anymore, its more like a general customization of the UI for gingerbread, that or im completely confused right now.. Well, if you havent seen them.
    oo lazy to find the other one

    That looks pretty cool. But do you think they could let me do the exchange after 15 days? I don't want to wind up being screwed haha

    I don't think they will, they are really strict when it comes to the 15 day rule cuz I tried 1 day after as well to switch my old fascinate for the X a while back and they didn't let me.

    And to answer your question of things the tbolt has over bionic are

    Tbolt has HTC sense which always the biggest plus to me (not a fan of motoblur or touchwiz)
    Tbolt has a 1.3mp ffc compared to the bionic vga ffc.
    Tbolt has a useful kickstand
    Tbolt is still the only phone that can call and use data simultaneously on Verizon through 3g.

    And besides the bionic being dualcore, a bit more RAM, a little higher resolution screen, the other specs are about the same. 4.3" display, 8mp camera with hd vid record, on 4glte, etc.

    Just weigh out what's important to you.

    HTC will always be my Android phone and i will show my thunderbolt some love until my next upgrade next September

    Thanks a lot for that info, so the only advantage of the bionic is the dual core? What exactly do you use the dual core for anyway?

    Everything the phone does, whenever you touch the screen, turn on the screen, go web browsing, play games, take/open pictures it uses the processor so a dual core phone will make all of those and more faster, and I believe the bionic has a more capable GPU, the video card portion, so it should be able to handle better quality games and be able to play higher quality video.

    So it makes it a little snappier in general?
    Edit: and if I wanted to switch to the bionic, I can return the tbolt within 14 days and I will still have the upgrade right?

    Yea everything will be faster. Dual core will be able to process the 4G speeds better also so you will have a better experience with those speeds. Yes you can return out in 14 days and get your upgrade back. That's what I plan to do when out comes out. Just to try it out but will wait for the vigor or nexus prime.

    The case maybe but not the battery.

    You should just keep the TBOLT though man...

    The Bionic honestly won't be worth it - both phones are 4g so there won't be a lot of difference.

    And if you return it it's not gonna be cheap.... You'll have 35 restock fee, 50 more for the Bionic, and you'll be stuck with extended battery.
