    Thanks for the link to a thread that is unhelpful, hasn't been updated in almost 3 weeks, and only has six posts...

    I am curious to hear opinions as well. I have an upgrade in November, and although we are dealing with the updated tiered data BS, I am looking forward to getting a new phone as well.

    Nice failed attempt at righteous indignation well after the fact.

    That thread was just as relevant as this duplicate thread was when it was posted. And at the time the link was posted, this thread only had four posts, and it was even less helpful than that thread. There's no reason this entire conversation couldn't have been carried on in a thread that already existed about this exact topic. It's not a similar topic, it's the exact topic.

    Try taking a look at everything before making an uninformed post like that.

    I did. I read another thread that was much more outdated and unhelpful.

    You should read the OP of the thread you posted. It's asking for a comparison of the Bionic/Droid 3 to phones that have already been released. This thread asks which one people prefer between the two - same sort of topic, different takes.

    For me, I prefer this one. Is that okay with you or do I have to go post in the other thread?

    Aside from that, I'm curious to see which one people prefer out of the D3 and the Bionic and why. Thanks for any input.

    All I did was point out a thread with the same topic that the conversation could take place in (because duplicate threads are frowned upon) or that could offer other relevant information due to the similarities. There was no need for your comment about it, nor is there a need for you to ask sarcastic questions about where to post. My post was relevant to the topic. Your post calling out mine was not. Post wherever you like, just don't go making snide, off topic remarks that are only intended to try to stir something up. There's no need for it.

    I'm pretty good at sarcasm, and that sure looks like sarcasm to me: as a matter of fact that looks like the first instance of it in this thread.

    I appreciate you pointing everyone to another similar topic, but for me, it's not as relevant because I haven't had experience with a D2 or a DX2. So, if we could kindly get back to the topic of this thread, I would appreciate it.

    That's really the long and the short of it. The Bionic make take a step up on the processor clock speed (and maybe RAM), but what it really comes down to is the keyboard and 4G. The global aspect of the Droid 3 is important for me as well. A lot of the rest looks like it will be quite similar.

    Can't you almost look at 4G as a sort of investment though? I mean, I don't have 4G in my immediate area, but the next closest city does I believe. So wouldn't one want to get 4G due to the fact that it will most likely be greatly expanding over the next 2 years and that one would want to have a phone that supports it?

    4g is an investment, but I can go either way. I got caught up needing a 4g phone a while back, but after evaluating my usage it isn't a deal breaker if a phone doesn't have it for me. It will be different for every person. Other features are more important to me in a phone like battery life, tv/hmdi out, good memory management, nice screen, etc. Some people want a physical keyboard, some people want 4g.

    Thunderbolt!

    No other phones I really like right now. I had a d1 for about eight months. Dx for like 6. Incredible which verizon gave me free for a week didn't really use it. And now thunderbolt.

    I know why people love htc now. Aside from battery it's great.

    Motorola is good but all motorola phones I had were bad with photos, laggy a little. This is the first phone I hacked to be fair but even before that it's the smoothest phone I ever owned.

    I would not get a 3g phone now that 4g is being tiered. Take advantage of free 4g!

    I think most folks that dwell in these type of forums rarely keep a phone beyond one year ;)
