    I think with all the problems the bionic "had", alot of people left it for a different phone. I'm on the 901 accidental update and my bionic is great now. It's what it should have been from day 1. I will keep the bionic because I like it now and because I can't get an upgrade for at least 18 months. I just hope it gets some more interest from the devs now that all the issues seem to be getting resolved. I can't comment on the razr since I've never touched one but I have read on here that it is a great phone. To the previous poster, yes, I would imagine the nexus is a great phone as well. I never touched one of those either.

    RAZR is a mild upgrade over the Bionic hardware wise. It's clocked higher but it's the same processor. I'm not sure if the dev community has managed to overclock the Bionic yet or not.

    The Bionic is priced better and is probably a greater value as neither of these phones are bad.

    Stylistically the RAZR is arguably nicer to look at and hold unless your hands are exceptionally large then the lack of depth will make the wideness feel strange.

    Accessories for the RAZR are better and cheaper from what I've read. This could be because Motorola and Verizon are obviously favoring the RAZR over the Bionic.

    I'd say the RAZR is better but you really can't go bad with either or the Galaxy Nexus.

    The screen on my bionic is brighter then the screen on the Razr. However the screen on the razr has a blue green hue that I don't care for. Luke amy phone, I suppose i'd get used to it. The race is so thin and has the camera hump. That combination has caused a cracked screen way higher then usual.

    The Nexus has a beautiful screen but feels cheap. And it's a pen tile screen. I can't believe Sammy didn't put a Super Amoled Plus screen on their flagship phone.

    So at the end of the day, i'll keep my bionic.

    The OTA to 5.5.893 has vastly improved my Bionic. Now if Verizon could become "Americas most dependable network..."

    It also depends on what YOU want out of a phone. What do you plan to do with it? No matter what you pick, a better one will come out.

    If power is a concern, the Razr has a non-removable battery, while the Bionic and (I presume) the Nexus has extended batteries.

    Bionic. Cheaper 149.99. Same hardware as nex and rzr. Screen is way better in sunlight. 32gb. No touch screen problems. No oversaturated colors and blue tint. Removable sd card and batt. Couple good roms. Overclocking is coming along. And its getting ics. No brainer imho. But deff go try em all at the store. All good phones.

    I own both and love them fOr different reasons but... I prefer my Razr over my bionic! The screen is better as qhd super amoled adv... The battery is replicable though not as easily...and the set up its more well thought out... Better camera hardware on three Razr is a plus as well.
    The internal water resistant nano coating ford those of us that work out side is a definate peace off mind giver.
    With the stiffness of the phone, there is little chance of a flex break/crack issue... Especially with its internal aluminum frame work.

    I do not have any blur tint or oversaturation, held side by side my Razr has better visibility/contrast.(in or out of the sunlight). Lol I don't have to pull my battery cover to get too my sd card, it's right there next to my micro Sim card. And it has the same processor but not cameras... Or screen tech...
    Battery use is about the same, if, you root and recalibrate the bionic.
    I'd not give up either for a gnex but I leave the house with my Razr and the Bionic with my wife. She is just as happy with the arrangement, lol.

    I have a Bionic, my brother has the Razor. Having used both they are about the same. The real decider is opinion or personal preference. I like that when the phone has a problem I can pop my battery out of the Bionc. My brother can't. His screen is clearer, but neither of us watch movies on our phone so what difference does that make. Let's face it they have almost identical specs and run the same OS, how different could they be? Look at them in the store and know in 3 months whatever you buy will be old hat.

    My 2c worth.

    Agree ! All personal fit and style! If cost is an issue though? Feel good about not missing too much with the bionic!
