You get what you like, not what the other guy likes!
Nice overview, thanks for sharing and best of luck with your decision!
"Never take life to seriously, you'll never get out alive!"
Just my 2 cents.....I think alot of the negativity the bionic gets is from buyers remorse. Alot of people went and used an upgrade to get this phone then a few weeks later found out the razr was coming out. Lots easier to justify paying full price for it when you really "hate" the one you have, and convince yourself its worth the money. I've had some data issues with mine, but I've seen alot of talk with new razr owners saying the same. Hardware isn't different enough to matter to me. Software may make the razr "feel" faster and look cleaner, but again its software. I think the real story will be told when both phones have ics. In the grand scheme of things, next year this time both phones will be old and slow lol. Till then we wait till the nexus comes out and they start talking the razr down and saying its junk and forget about the bionic!

I'm still awaiting some decent feedback from those two who almost IMMEDIATELY went pro-Razr with 0 explanation. I don't care if you want one, but I'd also like to know why.
To add a few potential benefits to your list, which was excellent btw, personally I don't think I'd like a super skinny phone like that. I think it LOOKS snazzy, but I like to feel my phone in my pocket and not have to double check it's not my 5-Energy Gum box. I like a decent weight, makes me feel like it's a solid piece of equipment, even if it doesn't have a "kevlar backing" (which, no, doesn't stop bullets). Also they did a drop test for the razr and it fared just as well as other phones. Little dinged up on the corners, but still runs fine unless it's dropped multiple times.
So in this battle, I think it ultimately comes down to personal preference, as I've said all along. Do you want a skinny phone? Do you use your phone outside a lot? Do you have small hands? When it comes to everything else, there really is no point in comparing since it's basically the same thing.
Also, the ONLY thing I sort of disagree with is the data drops being exaggerated. It's a real issue, I barely experience it, but for those on fringe zones it can actually be a fairly common occurrence, which would piss me off too. Unless by exaggerated you mean the majority of people don't have this issue and it's mostly those that are angry who speak out about it, then I guess yeah it's exaggerated a bit.

Thanks Horcrux, this has been a issue for me telling the 2 apart. Uve summed it up very well. The Bionic won hands down to me, it can have a extended battery, it has a better screen and its cheaper, its a no brainer. If I don't get the GN the Bionic will be my next phone. Thanks again.
