I looked at the Bionic in the VZW store today, and I have to say it was pretty sweet. Very fast, apps change instantly, no lag. The shutter on the camera was a bit slow. 4G speeds were great. I have read about some possible problems with noise using earphones during video playback, but I did not have headphones to test it with. I am sitting on the fence right now. My OG Droid from launch day Nov 2009 with SS/gingerbread has similar functionality but laggy compared to the Bionic (duh...) I can probably live with it for a few months more if necessary.
If I wait for the Prime, what will Ice Cream Sandwich bring to the Android experience that Gingerbread lacks?
