    Now that we know what the bionics specs are, I wonder if moto is going to change the name to "almost ordinary" . Let's face it, we were kept excited for 9 months for this?

    I asked this in the other 2 threads about the specs, but what kind of specs were you expecting to see? I mean, you have been following the leaks and everything for the past months right? Arent these basically the specs that have been thrown out for months? Why the suprise?

    I've been saying for months this thing is just a glorified, slightly souped up Atrix... the first "version" even was announced near the same time that AT&T got it.

    It's an awesome phone, mind you (as are the Atrix and Photon...) - but people are expecting this super phone that will blow our minds away and shock us with something new and revolutionary - overhype machine!

    Oh well...


    I admitted on another thread that the bionic will be the best compilation of currently available technology. It will only be people like me who can't ignore that:
    -the GSII destroyed the D3 in benchmark testing (bionic processor)
    -the D3 takes worse pictures than my D1 (bionic camera)
    -the D3's camcorder still suffers from stutter and skip (bionic video)
    -they will take over-saturated amoled colors vs a little more pixelation

    and will take a pass and wait on something cutting edge.

    We're upset because moto and the Verizon engineers took this long to put out a phone that doesn't blow us away! They make us wait for this! I'm sorry but the display is horrible(comparing to photon). HTC vigor here I come! My d1 is capable of lasting that long. I'm for one disappointed. A September release for what is a major let down. I don't care that its Verizons best 4g phone, their choices are a let down and I'm not getting stuck in a 2 year contract with this phone if those are in deed The specs.

    Is the Vigor 4G? When is that even supposed to be out? By the time that's on that's ready to be released, quad core phones will probably be ready to come out. You can play this game forever.

    You wanted a phone that would blow you away? Ummm.. Did you just start following the Bionic last week? I just think it's odd that everyone's crying over the specs when they pretty much already knew what the specs were gonna be.

    I think you are grossly missing the point! The specs would have been mind blowing months ago! To make us wait for technology that's been out for a while now and call it the best thing since sliced bread, give me a break. I WANT a new phone, I don't need one(thanks bugless) so yes I can wait. I'd rather give my money to HTC and their 720hd non pixelated goodness!
    Thank you

    To spend the kind of $ they are going to demand for the bionic and be locked into another 2 year contract, some of us just want something a little more than the best bits (questionable) from the last 6 months thrown together in one package.

    So 2 months ago you would have committed to the thing for 2 years, but now you wouldnt? if the device had came out two months ago and you had bought it, would you be lamenting your purchase today? What's really the difference between 2 months ago and today?

    Who said it was the best thing since sliced bread? I havent even seen any real promotional material or advertising at all from Verizon or Moto. The Bionic might be the victim of fanboy fantasies. It's as if everyone already has an idea in their head about the "perfect phone" that Moto is supposed to be building for them, and when they're faced with the reality of what the device might be, they're all disappointed.

    OK, see now I'm worked up. The bionic back in November was supposed to be an awesome phone, so indeed yes I would have bought it. Back in February there were no other dual core lte phones so that phone would have been cutting edge for a while. Then they scrapped the famous Etna in favor of another phone, the targa. So again we were made to wait. April, then may, then June, then July, will it be here August? Nope September. So yes it is a HUGE let down(if indeed those are the true specs). Hell the f*c*Ing evo 3d at least has something cool like 3d(will I ever use it? No, but it does make for a rather nice party favor). I'm not coming from a storm 1! No pun intended preach. I want something as cutting edge as the og Droid 1. Not yesterdays news.
    So for a company to be as ballsy as Motorola and have them expect me to wait in line for this thing and pay a premium for a phone with a horrible screen? No and I'm not just talking a different shade of green on a battery icon I mean my commador 64 had better resolution. The photons screen is utterly insulting.
    So in turn after a little drunk rambling I'd rather hold off a month or two and have more dual core choices.

    The GSII, an "older" phone, already blows the bionic out of the water in processor power, and quality of pictures and videos. Several people have run all of the benchmarks vs it's processor (via the D3) and it's no contest. Motorola has never ever offered the level of detail or smoothness offered in sammys multimedia (go compare the d3 to the charge). I can tone down a sammy pics admittedly over-saturated colors, but I can't make a motorola pic more sharp or a motorola video less choppy. I just won't pay a premium price when I know better hardware has already been in existence for some time. I'm not going to go to vzw, find out that the D3 takes worse pictures than my D1, and then pay top dollar for the bionic. That would make me question my own judgement (after already questioning why moto couldn't fix the cam/vid between the D1 and D3). Sorry this is rambling, but there's just one too many things going on with the bionic to part with my hard earned cash.

    And another thing!(told You I was worked up) the balls Motorola has to claim they have an even better phone coming out later this year that will kill the bionic and you want me to jump on this thing? I can't do It I'm sorry. I hope those specs are wrong I really do.

    I think the biggest point here is, Motorola is refusing to fix the problems their phones have. They make 3 phones in a row with bad screens and bad cameras, 2 of the most important things in a phone.

    For all we know the battery could be bad too and we know the CPU is already beat by the GSII, so what's the point?

    Why get a phone with a low quality screen/camera, just so we can download faster?

    Sorry Moto, we're not as dumb as you think we are.
