    - The Rezound has one of the best cameras on any phone right now (including the front camera)
    - The Rezound comes with expensive earbuds for free, which can be sold even if you dont want them
    - 64 Gig SD cards have been confirmed to work on the Rezound...I dont know if that is true for the Bionic

    I cant think of anything the bionic does better than the Rezound. I think the Rezound even beats it in benchmarks. The only reason to get a Bionic over a Rezound at all IMO is because it is cheaper.
    Or if you want to see the screen in direct sunlight at 0% with sunglasses on.

    I never have problems viewing in Sunlight. This is a myth.

    Even if it wasnt, it still would not be worth the trade IMO. A slightly brighter screen is not worth sacrificing a 720p resolution and a pixel density even better than the iPhone.

    Its actually not a myth.

    But I digress. If you want to have a 720p screen with better dpi than an IPhone's "retina" display, then you should get a Rezound.

    I used the following equation to determine this:
    My own eyes > rumor and hearsay

    When I use it outside I never have the problems seeing it in sunlight that I did with my droid 1. If I have any complaints it is that the glass is too reflective, not that the display is too dim. I've never been in a situation where I could not see it clearly outside.

    I didn't say you COULDN'T see it EVER. I said you couldn't see it at 0% brightness, which is where I like to keep my phone for maximum battery savings. Since I COULD not see my D1 at 0% with sunglasses on, one of a few things may have happened;

    A: My sunglasses are darker than yours
    B: You didn't have the screen at 0%
    C: I shouldn't be able to drive legally

    You are correct...I missed the 0% thing.

    I never have any phone at 0% brightness. Even indoors. I've never been that hard up for battery savings I guess. I generally keep my screen off unless I am actually using it. I did the same thing with my Droid 1. That has saved me more on battery life than turning down my screen brightness ever did.

    Also...If you raise the Rezound's brightness to the same level that the Bionic is at 0%, I think it is possible that the battery consumption would be the same anyway. Or possibly negligible.

    All this is moot to me now of course. I have the extended battery. I can go 24 hours between charges most of the time, and I can go a 14 hours easy with heavy use.

    How does the Bionic not compete with current tier1 phones? Care to explain that?

    I would vehemently disagree with that statement. If you don't like it, cool. But you gotta back up a statement like that. You said there's nothing it does that the others don't. FM radio? There's one for you.

    The Bionic is every bit as good as every other phone out there. On top of that, it's become cool to hate the Bionic, so while some are overlooking it you can swoop in and get a top level phone for cheap.

    And please don't bring up the camera. I'm not using my phone as a professional photographers camera. The Bionic is just fine for a smartphone's camera. Also the headphones are a gimmick. It's funny that the Rezound has to suck people in with "expensive" headphones. Who doesn't already own headphones for crying out loud?

    Um...I thought I already did that back in Post #30. The main way is the display. All the tier1 phones except 1 are 720p.

    I did that already. You need to read the entire thread.

    The rezound does have an FM radio. However I would disagree with your implication that the FM radio makes it preferable to a phone with a 720p display. LOL

    No, it isnt. I have already given several examples. Explain to me why the examples I gave in post #30 do not count.

    There is a good reason it is cheap. Just sayin.

    No need to get all bent out of shape over it. Bionic owners get so defensive over this. All phones become obsolete, usually within 6 months. When the quad core phones come out in May or whatever the current tier1 phones will not longer be tier1 either. And the Rezound will join the bionic in the bargain bin.
