    New phone: Droid 3 vs Bionic vs Samsung GSII

    Hey everyone, I have a question that I'm hoping someone can provide some answers for. My two-year contract with Verizon expired recently and I'm in the market for a new phone. The phone I've had for the last two years was a Samsung Alias 2. Not a smartphone, but it kept me through college and day-to-day activities. Now I'm looking to get an Android phone and I need some help deciding which one. I've done my research but my younger brother (who shares our family verizon account with me) desperately needs his iPhone 4. So now he's hounding me to decide on a phone. My question (sorry for ranting) is what phone do I get? Should I get a Droid 3, wait 2 more weeks for the Bionic or possibly wait even longer for Samsung to release the GSII?

    Thanks for reading!

    Droid 3 if you want a more pocketable phone with a nice keyboard, GS2 if you want a 4G, super amoled+ phone.

    I would say the Droid 3 or GS2. The GS2 seems to be everything the Bionic is, but better.

    The Droid 3 is different than the other two with a keyboard, and 4inch display.

    I say wait till the Bionic comes out and play with both the D3 and that. I have a D3 and love it. Moto does have the best build quality.

    droid 3 if u want a keyboard.
    Bionic if a keyboard isn't necessary and you really want 4G (I think its just a gimmick really).
    SG2 if you can wait a month for it. Its really the most high end out of the three but that doesn't really matter unless your a heavy gamer.

    Honestly I think the Bionic is going to be disappointing for numerous reasons.

    Is the Galaxy S2 still supposed to be coming to the US with tegra2 instead of exynos?

    The bionic has 1gb, d3 has 512 and Gs2 has 1gb I believe. It doesn't really make a difference however, and I think I read that the bionics extra 512mb is dedicated to webtop anyways.

    I also had an Alias 2 before my Droid 3. I have always liked having a physical keyboard so it was a nice upgrade to get a bigger and better physical keyboard on the Droid 3. If you would rather have a slightly larger screen and use a soft keyboard then this isn't an advantage, but I like being able to have the option of a hardware keyboard which doesn't rob screen space like a soft keyboard.

    So im 6"3 and my hands are relatively big but does anyone find it somewhat difficult to type with the keyboard. It seems like it takes some effort to push down the keys.
    The Multi-touch keyboard seems to be easier to type on, but I haven't really tested it thoroughly to be able to compare the two.
    I guess the downside with the soft keyboard is it takes up a lot of space and you are a lot more likely to make mistakes while typing.

    Btw - Wow I just used the soft keyboard to type out that last few sentences and man did I get it done fast and with ease. No typos either. However I don't want to ditch the hard keyboard because well.. its taking up space on my phone and I don't want it to be useless :/
