    Razr maxx.

    The d4 leaves much to be desired.

    They are lying to you. The bionic is being phased slowly out, but there are still plenty of them around.

    The maxx is top dog right now. Its an excellent device. You can't go wrong with it.

    ^^^^^^^^^ They MAY be sold out right now due to the Father's Day sale, though. If you can get ahold of one, though, it's a real deal - if the maxx is top dog, the Bionic is next in line! I still like the idea of being able to replace my battery without risk of damage to my phone, in my experience they tend to start losing capacity right around the 1 year mark.

    EDIT: I especially like the fact that I can buy a new battery for my Bionic for right around $6.00 on Amazon.

    Comments for the above link seem to concur that these are the real deal, too!

    Lol, I'm not criticizing the bionic, I still use one. I love it. Its got awesome reception, and its probably the more rugged of the 2, your always hearing about screens on the razrs, but not that often on the bionic :)

    It's being retired in a certain way as it's now "free" with a 2-year contract so I presume people are jumping on the offer. The good news is that the Bionic Laptop was reduced from $199.99 to $49.97 (may be limited to in-store stock only).

    And it's nice that an update for the Bionic is coming out next week or so. Take a look at http://www.droidforums.net/forum/motorola-droid-bionic/211119-905-soak-test.html

    I have the OEM extended battery. It definitely competes with the MAXX and its $200 cheaper. The Bionic is just sold out. It'll be back.

    You know, I never even thought of the ruggedness. It is amazing how few busted screens you read about on Bionics. Maybe the RAZR is more prone to screen damage because the bezel around the screen is thinner? Now that you've pointed that fact out, i'm intrigued.

    Yea the bionic + the oem extended battery makes it very competitive with the r-maxx.

    And being 175 dollars cheaper you cant go wrong.
