    The original bionic they had at the ces show or whatever, before they decided to "scrap" it looked sooooo much better than this crap i honestly think. What the hell is motorola thinking, this one feels so cheap and looks so standard its embarrasing taking it out of my pocket. Id rather get a bluetooth headset. Only reason i got it cuz of the ram and it runs much smoother then my crap droid charge. I havent noticed anyone else complaining about the look of this one, so just wanted to see if its just me or others also liked the original design and look of the bionic?

    i feel like the new one is so plain, looks like a Droid x with touch capasitive keys rounded off a bit. I expected some major stuff the way they talked about this phone but it feels so exaggerated ... i mean the phone performance i agree its bomb but the just the look of it so many phones look so much nicer next to it i think

    I think the droidforums should put like a chat system of some sort so people won't make so many threads with post like this one.

    Love the look and feel. The only minor flaw is that it does not feel as strong and durable as previous Moto Droids. But overall it is a great phone and looks better than anything else out there imo.

    I say, if you want a phone for its looks get an iPhone. People will think you're cool. Its a phone, not an accessory. Get it for its performance and functionality.

    LOVE the look and feel of the Bionic.
    My ONLY gripe about the design is placing the power button on the upper left like they did.

    I pocket my phone in my left pocket thus my index finger naturally moves towards the upper right of the device.
    Middle was cool on the X but on the left is going to take some serious getting used to.

    People are seem to be missing one thing, the phone which is a durable build, and is LIGHTER, if you drop it, less chance something will break. Compare it to dropping lets say, a text book and a spiral notebook ... which is gonna hit the ground harder?

    Like it a lot. Only complaints are that the power button is on the left side instead of the usual top right side. Also, I think the LED notification light is too small and dim.

    I actually like the new power button, its not inset, so I dont have to go pushing down hard to reach it. As for the LED, I see no probs with it, works sufficiently for me.

    The old one from CES was so bloated and bulbous. The Targa version is true to the Droid line. It feels solid, uses glass and metal and not all plastics and is so much lighter than expected. I am using the extended battery and that is adding quite a bit to the weight though haha

    I actually like the way the phone looks with and without the extended battery. It's a no lose situation imo.

    I actually went to the store to see it as well. My tb was actually smoother, although that phone had higher data speeds. As far as feel goes I understand what ur saying. It did feel cheap, and I thought the charge did as well. It felt like a very light phone also and plastic. Personally, I prefer heavy phones. My phone is heavier than most and I love that. I actually hope the next android I get is a little heavier than my tb.
    The screen on the bionic was so so...better in sunlight obviously, brighter, and from what I've read better battery but pixelation is pretty clear and it did bother me after a while.

    Unlike the OP, I was actually impressed when I first picked up the Bionic. It looked better in person. It's very light too.

    I don't have it yet nor have I even physically looked at it or touched it. I am hearing it is lighter, but isn't the build not as good as the Original? Is Bionic all plastic now whereas the OG Droid was mostly metal? I would think the Bionic would sustain more scratches?? Again, just questioning what I hear in reviews. Thanks.

    Well if the original poster hates the phone so much then just why the hell did you buy it? The ignorance of some people in this new world never fails to astound me.
