    Honestly, calls probably make up 5% of the time when I am on my phone, if that.

    Oh nooooo I need good call quality on my phone. I mostly txt but I still talk on the phone whether it be for 2 minutes or an hour. No matter how "smart" smartphones get, its still a smartPHONE

    AWESOMEbolt

    No 4G killed this device. Otherwise probably perfect, I'm drying for a 4".

    I wouldn't worry about that. Motorola is known for great speaker and call quality.

    Not having 4G on the D3 is really pissing me off... I'm fine with 3G download speeds, but it's not really about that. 4G gives you ~10ms (50ms for establishing a connection) latency. 3G gives you at best 100ms, usually higher (up to 2seconds for establishing a connection). This is QUITE important in any online gaming or VoiP and very noticeably when browsing.

    Also, not being able to browse while on the phone is an archaic CDME limitation that I don't want to get stuck with for another year+.

    Motorola: Y U release already-outdated phone??

    maybe people should start spamming the crap out of moto for D3 to be 4g. maybe it will change their minds. lol

    it really doesnt make sense not to make it 4g. alot of people dont mind but with 4g being pushed i would think 3G would be kinda out dated sooner than later.

    idk. im certainly confused and a bit upset. i LOVED the idea of this phone.

    I will admit I would like it to be 4g but I prefer my phone's battery to allow me to use it. From everything I am reading 4G= poor battery. No point in having fast download speed if your phone can't stay on long enough to use it.

    For me here is what makes this phone my next one:

    • I have an upgrade available now and another available in 3 months
    • It's DUAL CORE!!!!
    • Physical Keyboard
    • 4 " Screen

    What I am starting to get confused on is everyone keeps calling the Bionic the "Targa" when if you look online the parts available for the Droid 3 are listed as "Targa". So.....isn't the Droid 3 the Targa?

    These pics are only of the sliding screen. The OG Droid pic doesn't show the hump either.

    Really looking forward to upgrading to this Droid from my OG. Lack of 4G isn't a deal killer for me.
