I went to Verizon last Friday and spent time with both phones. I like them both and could not decide which to get. The sales rep actually was leading me more towards the Droid 3. Mostly because 4G is not fully rolled out in this area. The phones seemed to perform pretty close to the same when I messed with them. (No 4G in the store I was at.) There is 4G around me, but not right where I live. It's not a big deal as I would use wifi at home anyway. The keyboard on the Droid 3 is great, but not a deal breaker to not have it. I am just wondering if having double the RAM and slightly bigger screen is worth the extra $100. I can go straight to the Verizon store and trade for the Bionic. Has anyone used both these devices that can give me some advice? Any help is appreciated. I will have another upgrade available this time next year so I only have to make this phone last a year really if I want to. Thank you.
