    Droid Bionic vs. Galaxy S3

    So today on these forums, I went to the s3 page and saw that the s3 might not be what it was hyped up to be. Alot of crashes and glitches and what not. But.. if you had a bionic with the official ice cream sandwich on it, and an S3 in front of you. Which would you choose.

    I think that decision would come down to a lot of things... hardware, build quality, personal preference, and my mood.

    The s3 has 2 gigs of ram, the s4 processor, an HD screen.. just to name a few features...

    Negatives... touchwiz, but it has some good points to it too. Build quality, durability which could be taken as the same thing as build quality.

    Bionic, build quality.. radios,

    Negatives, its a year old. Outdated tech..

    Lots of ways to look at this...

    Personally... I would get neither.. especially with the hd's on the horizon.

    The s3 isnt much better than the bionic in all honosty. What i do like about the s3 is how huge the display is. Thats also the reason i like the galaxy nexus.

    A lot of crashes and glitches and what not? I'm not sure what you're seeing, but there's not any more of that with the S3 than there is with any other phone. In fact, I'd say there's less of that with the S3 than there is with many other phones. Most people go to forums in order to find answers to problems they're having, so you're almost always going to see more negative posts than positive posts with any device. Users who aren't having problems aren't going to constantly post threads saying that they're not having problems. The S3 isn't without its faults, but it's a solid device, and arguably the best phone that's available on Verizon right now.

    And having owned both phones, in my opinion the S3 is the better phone. That's not to say that the Bionic is a bad phone, and that's not to say that the S3 would be a huge leap forward for someone who has the Bionic, but the S3 trumps the Bionic in pretty much every aspect.

    The s3 is a solid device. The issue that is plaguing it on all 4 carriers including international was battery drain that was related to the radios. A software update fixed many of the issues. I am struggling because the s3/note 2 is an awesome device that is future ready but Motorola has the best radios and build of them all. Its basically trying to decide among the bests what to buy. And that is awesome considering 2-3 years ago there really were not a lot of options on vzw for Android.

    I'd take the S3's camera over the Bionic's for sure. I'd also take the HD screen and S4 processor. Other than that, It's a tossup in my mind. Though the S3 will likely have JB sooner, and JB is pretty slick.

    Nothing to be sorry about. I was just saying that, like with most phones, much of what you're reading about often represents the exception to the rule. Believe me, if the S3 had major, widespread issues, I'd be one of the first to bash it. I change phones like it's no one's business, and I have no loyalty to a phone because of its brand or the fact the I own it.

    No battery drain issues for me, the radio (while a bit weaker than most Motorolas I've owner) is solid, and I feel the build quality is unfairly characterized. It's not the tank that many Motorolas are, but there's something to be said for the flexibility it has in a fall versus the rigid design of something like the Bionic.

    Believe me, I had major reservations with he S3 based upon my experiences with Samsung devices on Verizon. I also have been far more impressed with Motorola than any other Android phone manufacturer overall and was hesitant to give up the MAXX. But I've been nothing but impressed and pleasantly surprised by the S3. It's also making me even more excited about the Note 2.

    Man late november is going to be interesting for android geeks. I can see us now at the store trying to compare the note 2 to the htc phablet and razr maxx hd. They will have the razor maxx hd set up over by the razr section, note 2 with the nexus gs3 and other sammy, and the htc phablet (which I am going to call it the droid incredible hd) with other htc devices and we will be in the store running back and forth working up a sweat lol. I can already see my dialogue with vzw csr now.

    "can yall unplug these so I can compare these phones side by side".
    CSR: "sorry sir we cant do that they are there for security reasons">
    (whips out wallet and keys) "here are my keys and wallet so you know I am not going any where"
    CSR: "Sir we can't do that"
    (In the Joe from family guy voice) "COME ON!! disconnect THESE PHONES RIGHT NOW !!!! YEA!!!!"



    Its bad to have the cops escorting you out of vzw over phones .
