With Bionic, I got data drop issue from day 1. UI was much better and overall much faster device but I couldn't wait for ICS OTA update. Way toooooooo slow.... I worked for Samsung before and I know how they work. Maybe Moto guys go home at 6 regardless of project progress but Samsung guys aren't... At least their manage make sure process is in line with schedule.
Anyway, I am now with Galaxy S3 and it doesn't show day and night difference but overall experience is much improved. Even with standard battery, battery life is on par or superior than that of Moto extended battery. Faster, 2G memory leaves much room after all the apps I installed. bigger and better screen, lighter weight... Nothing is worse than Moto. Even Radio.. Moto's own LTE can't beat Qualcomm's LTE baseband.
I am not sure what future lies in front of Moto. Though there's financial backup from Google, can they be competitive again? From Razor Maxx HD coming in Oct or Nov, I am not sure.. Samsung may have another one coming at that time for big holiday season.
Bye bye moto. good old friend but far behind the trend.
I would say the droid bionic because of hardware and is durable.
Droid bionic because of build.
Droid bionic have close stock look on the OS in ICS leak .
It seem smoother then my droid razr on ICS, base on my experience. I yet to get bugs on it.
Droid bionic have smooth and nice os,apps work fine and qhd look it amazing.
Droid bionic have nice battery life.
Droid bionic have micro-hdmi port doesnt need extra piece like s3 to have it on.
Samsung galaxy s3
Samsung galaxy s3 have better camera based on sensor or lense it have.
Samsung galaxy have feather like thinnest of any galaxy s line ( get droid razr if u want thinner devices.)
Samsung galaxy s3 have nice natural touchwiz interface.
Samsung galaxy s3 have better resolution do to HD and Super Amoled screen.
Samsung galaxy s3 have decent battery life time compare to bionic
Everything else can be a toss up on both devices.
Con of samsung is the plastic look and feel.
Samsung user interface look like iphonish ripoff still.
Con of Moto is the camera isnt as nice in certain situation.
FYI I use my bionic with ICS leak rom the last build from moto not rooted for 1 week.
My friends S3 for about a few days and it wasnt to impressive like the commercial make it seem.
I would say if you coming from dual core phone to wait for Droid Razr HD.
Or just wait for Samsung galaxy s4 for Next Summer or Early Fall.

FYI- The GS3 is plenty durable. May not be "moto tough" but it is formidable none the less.
My girlfriend does and i play it all the time. Im not to impress by it and I play with my droid bionic have leak ICS OS to me it much smoother then my droid razr. That I sold due to the screen being crack . Droid razr was smooth on gingerbread but ICS was a disaster compare to bionic.
I didnt say that it wasnt and 2 gb of ram is only good for games and video. User interface seem the same on my test on bionic and S3 . And if the bionic rooted is basicly the same speed as droid razr or razr maxx. Because, Moto basicly overclock 1000 mhz (dual core to 1.2 ghz on the phone with the same chip on bionic.
I personally love the Motorola had bad experience with galaxy s1 and did month trial with a friend about s2. Personally, didnt like it and if i want latest and greatest. I can wait for 1 year or so to do it with Moto. Not blame them, when Carriers is notorious for delaying them for new device and Google is to blame for the update with Future Android OS.
Especially, Google like holding for 3 months the new OS. Especially, to the Nexus line then allow Carriers or Manufacture to touch it afterword. Like that; they can hype their phone and make people buy into ecosystem
