    You sure about that? That's what everyone was saying about the Bionic 6 months ago.

    I think you're giving the phone makers too much credit where the clearly don't deserve it.

    By November, it should be amply clear if the Dinara is going to release by Christmas.

    I'm sure that phones coming out in September are better than the ones released 3 months ago. and I'm sure the phones released 3 months ago are better than the ones released 3 months before that. regardless of what is being said about the bionic, or what has happened with that particular phone, the fact is that there will always be something better coming 3 months down the road.

    But you KNEW about the Bionic 6 months before the Charge and the Incredible2 and whatever else is out there, so you were already planning on ignoring these phones because something more badass was coming out, right?

    What's wrong with making the same choice about the Dinara?

    Ignoring the Bionic in favor of the Dinara is the same as ignoring the Charge and X2 and Droid3 in favor of the Bionic.

    Droid Bionic

    From what I have noticed including myself, most people waiting on the bionic do not want to wait any longer. They will get the bionic or whatever phone released around the same time that can compete with the bionic. An extra month wait will seem too long for many bionic followers to jump on the vigor bandwagon. Many of them previously assumed Aug 4 was the release date so it already feels like a suffering wait. Many of these people have the OG Droid and are dying to get away from the 256MB ram limit.

    How much better than the vigor could the dinara possibly be? It will probably still have a pentile screen, maybe the same processing power. It looks to me with that release date that the vigor is the phone to get if you're sitting on a upgrade. I really like moto phones and was dead set on bionic, but the thought of dual 1.5 and 720p is too much not to wait an extra month for. It really seems that moto will lose out big time compared to what they could have had with a release date of tomorrow. I know everyone debates if this phone was really even delayed since they always said summer, but whatever held up the launch will end up costing moto.

    BIONIC!
    #16
    The bionic is my august 13th birthday present, obviously it its going to be a bit late. But I'll probably be buying a bionic on day one unless there are very firm release dates that say one of these really badass phones will be out in the very very near future...

    I actually agree with you 100% I am not at all trying to say you shouldn't skip the bionic and wait for the dinara. If the dinara looks like the phone you will really like, then by all means you should wait and get it. All I'm saying is that by the time dinara comes out, something better will be rumored, and if you are going to continually wait to get a phone because something better has been announced you will never get a phone. That's why at some point you will just have to say "this is the phone i want right now" and take the plunge.

    Definitely would have bought it day one had it been out a month ago. But as you said, the Stratosphere could be the SGII 4G(which everyone said wouldn't happen) and even if it's not I think I want the SGII because of it's screen and CPU performance.

    X2 and d3 doesn't have 4g. Either you are deadset on 4g or you are not which desides on which class of phones one would consider. There are only 3 lte phones right now and I just don't like either one. All of them are either missing something that I want or they have something I don't want. I just think the current selection is poor.

    If the x2 or D3 had lte then I would not be here posting right now.

    I generally agree with everything you said and think now the vigor is most likely the phone worth taking the plunge for. I mean the specs alone dictate that, but I just read about the unlocked bootloader and now I'm really hoping that 10/5 release date is accurate.

    Bionic - 1.0ghz dual core < Vigor - 1.5ghz dual core
    Bionic - pentile screen < Vigor 720p
    Bionic - locked bootloader vs Vigor unlocked bootloader
    < a month difference in release date (assuming ign doc is accurate)

    That's an awful big improvement for less than a month of waiting...

    I really hope though by 10/5 that I'm not making a similar argument for the prime lol.
