    Good bye bionic

    So, my work got me a Samsung galaxy S3, free of charge of course. I'm gonna finally get rid of this piece of junk 'flagship' Motorola phone. Constant 4G drops, quirky audio (digitized, volume sways). Gonna either put the bionic in my bench vice or take my 10lb sledge hammer to it, who knows maybe it'll work better after that. I'd like to say its been fun but it hasn't, what a disappointment this phone was.

    Or you could just install ICS on it, and probably have a BETTER device as far as RF quality goes than the S3. Whatever, if you're really going to smash it, send it to me instead. I'd be happy to pay shipping.

    I wouldn't say it would be better than the S3 at all. In fact, I laughed out loud to the suggestion that the Bionic will EVER have better radio frequency than any phone. Just as good perhaps, but definitely not better.

    I'd say the Bionic was an amazingly kick ass phone except for data drops. If it didn't have those, I'd definitely still have mine. Shame your experience was so terrible otherwise...

    Yep, and ICS eliminates the data drops. You can laugh all you want, the S3 has WEAK data compared to a Bionic running ICS.

    I'll pay for shipping + 10 dollars.
    PM me
    I like to watch debates, especially when they're fair!
    Another definition of ghey: When a self appointed "referee" decides to join a "debate" (that's okay) but then decides to end/close the "debate", only because both sides have valid points & he/she just can't win and/or doesn't want to hear the other opinions any longer...

    Sorry, I only check/subscribe to threads that I've started, not all the ones I've posted in , PM me instead.

    Well considering I speak from experience, fairly extensive experience too, I think I'll laugh harder. And I'll just leave it at that. Hope the OP has a better experience with their next device.

    I know you want to get revenge but really take a shot at ICS. If I had a spare phone I'd do it in a second. Just for the experience. Mine is a work phone so I just am not allowed to hack it otherwise I'd love to do that.

    Well then, your towers work differently than my local towers. Which proves one thing. It's not the devices. It's Verizon's patchwork network. A Motorola Bionic sitting here at my desk on ICS will get full bars. A Samsung Galaxy S3 on Verizon will get 2 bars. I had the two devices sitting in front of me last week, and that was my experience.
