:rofl3: newest and greatest phone on VZ and it still gets pwned by two six months old phones , six months in technology world is like what ? 25 years in human years ? :clap: great job VZ you are truly the greatest
^Yea it sure did get owned....cuz winning benchmarks is what all manufactures strive for....
Never mind Moto doing their own LTE chip.
*Looks at user name, type of phone, picture, and message....*
ws just to tide me over with a good phone, although the g2x had its problems onl prob now is gps is poor but different roms fix it lg just has no idea how to program either the tegra chip or android or both.
it may be tegra drivers and may be why the bionic changed processors.
But for the person tht said moto released at the right time. yeah its easy if you have the provider not offer the phones that are comparable. g2x,atrix,photon,sensation,evo3d, etc. many other comparable phones. think g2x is only one that matches up the best 8megs internal and 512 of ram hdmi and usb not mhl port. 4 inch screen but its not pentile. and i went and looked at it and cant understand why they would use that. it is obviously problematic i definatley noticed that my g2x screen was much clearer and crisper.
so while the bioinc is a fine device and probably sell tons. the people that say its old tech arent far off. there are many comparable devices that have been out for quite a while. and many as i had posted before were pushing but it has ddr2 and i just dont see anything in the benchmarks out that show it makes any noticable difference and is actaully lower than some others.
Unless people buy the bionic thinking the bootloadre is unlocked or didnt check the display to see if it doesnt bother them ahead of time i think they will be very happy with the device.
LTE- do we really need a phone that can do 22mbs down. as i said i get 8-10 down on tmobile and wish i could tell the phone to only do 5mb since i am tierd on tmobile and it justs burns through data faster. (many sites send video contact depending on determined speed-so you get a higher quality vid that you cant distinguish on the phone but burn the bandwidth) really what is 22mbps if you can only use it for an hour .
and the citrix server stuff on the bionic will be handy many especially busines users.
the webtop stuff is just a gimmick to me the price of the addons just arent comparable to what they offer. But for some this is the thing that noone else has and makes this a device that noone else has met.
and i think its known that moto seems to have the best reception on their phones.
so i think those that like it have as many reasons as those that dont.
but i have to laugh when people seem to get so mad that someone doesnt think the bionic is all that when they do.
its a phone most specs have been out on other phones for a while, this is just a fact if you like the bionic what do you care about those that dont.
the thing is many of us want a moto phone after having the droid and love the build quality the lack of problmes weve had with it. and are disapointed that this moto phone is not what we were looking for in an upgrade.
"thanks for calling bionic opinion hotline.. this is peggy"
Or like how the EVO 4G had its FPS capped. Do other phones have it capped too? An update uncapped it eventually.
And this doesnt include the benchmark tests that can be manipulated. Some are more reliable than others, or the pro version tells a better story than the free, standard version
Agree wholeheartedly jroc. As with anything data related; it can be manipulated. Also agree about the Phone A vs B point. Having said that..... it's a bit upsetting to see an older phone score leaps and bounds better than a brand new phone even though the technology is around the same age. This is not a case of 1st vs 2nd or 3rd; The Bionic is pretty far down that list for my own liking. NOT to say that the Bionic is not relevant for the market and not to say that it will not be able to secure it's place but, scores low enough for me to be cautious about it. I'd love the ability to have a few phones at one time so I was able to run my own tests and come up with my own results and not just benchies. The bottom line is; the Bionic is the new King in town and, as with all new kings in Tech; the reign is short lived. We as loyal subjects (or is it slaves?!?) have no choice but to succumb to it's gleaming red eye demanding that we part with our heard earned cash just to hold it.
Bionic scores are equal to my D3, obviously.
