    The Droid Razr is going on pre-order tomorrow, and as such, it seems Verizon is reducing the price for its older brother. The Bionic, according to the MAP sheet above, will be getting a $50 price drop from $299.99 to $249.99. This price drop is most likely not going to mean too much to you guys seeing as the last poll we did had many of you ready for the Galaxy Nexus but, at least now, the Bionic is a cheaper alternative.

    It doesn't sound nearly as nice as Droid Bionic.....hell outrageous the whole 4G lineup that could be the worst name..lol. I'm sure it will be a great phone though.

    Is it really that powerful?

    If I'm not mistaken it's the same cpu that's in the T-Mobile GS2 and HTC sensation.

    From my understanding Exynos @ 1.2GHz is better and the Mali 400 GPU is more powerful.

    I think what he is saying is that the HTC is more powerful than the Razr with a OMAP 4430 overclocked to 1.2 or the Nexus with the 4460 underclocked to 1.2. Who is running the Exynos?

    At least the specs for the HTC show a removable battery and a removable memory card.:biggrin: But the screen does not look as good.:icon_eek:

    Actually the RAZR has an OMAP 4460 at 1.2GHz just like the GN. Technically it's not even underclocked because 1.5GHz is the highest TI would clock the cpu. Doesn't mean it won't run higher either.

    Do you have some kind of discount with Verizon because I see $299 when I'm signed out and logged in to my account.

    Wow that is weird. I have 20% off my bill and 25% off accessories but I have never seen my discount apply to a phone itself before. I dunno what the deal is.

    Hey, well now you know next time you upgrade! And if you're rocking the D2 now, maybe you'll want the D4 which may be coming in a couple months...

    Nice. Well keep your eyes and ears open. Test them all out for yourself. Verizon has a lot of phones coming out in the next couple of months.

    It hasn't officially been announced and noone really know the specs for it, just rumors and they're really haven't even been many of those.

    Funny, like 2 months ago HTC was the phone to have and everyone hated Moto.

    You may be right, but since V$ doesn't have a phone that has a Exynos and a Mali in it that points kind moot. They passed on the phone with the Exyno for the GN, and then just to have it a few months before anyone else.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I was referring to. It's the most impressive looking device (spec wise, not physically) coming to VZW in the near future. It would be funny if this "underhyped" phone ends up being a "Rezounding" success *LOL*

    EDIT: As for the screen, it may not be AMOLED; however I would be perfectly happy with a 720p S-LCD screen. I am in the minority that HATE the overblown colors with AMOLED.

    If you are logged in, they shpow the phone prices with any discounts you may get already applied. When you are first available for an upgrade/extension, they give you like $30 credit and it goes up after that. Towards the end of a contract, you'll see a $50 credit, possibly more...
