    MobileBurn have the Droid Bionic, and shared a full hands-on demo video of the device. Their first impressions of the device seem to indicate that it is very much like a Droid X2 except with LTE. They were very happy with the performance of the phone, but didn't share any benchmarks, yet. Here's a few quick quotes from some of their first impressions,
    They also said,
    From their initial impressions, the phone is a solid but not stellar device. They seemed impressed with its upload speeds, and they indicated that the 1735mAh battery should give you plenty of juice for normal use. They plan to do a full test and review of the device later. You can see the phone in action yourself in the video above, and part two is below.

    Indeed. They went and pulled the Phone when it was "ready" to change things up and now it's going to be released and there is noticeable lag. I dunno. I was REALLY holding out for this phone, sitting on my NE2 but, I think I'm going to wait and at least see what the other new phones bring to the table.

    Not a huge wow factor for me either. I have a very fast DroidX and just dont really see any need to get this phone. If it at least had a bit larger 720p display, I would probably get it.

    I'm just hoping that the lag is just because of blur (or whatever Moto wants to call it now)...since it's already rooted, might perform better after Launcherpro

    I think I'll wait a bit to see the views of people on this forum to see some real world tests. I'm still thinking about getting this though.

    I am getting the Bionic, but just based on the rumored specs The Prime is clearly superior to the Vigor.

    It would have been nice if he took a picture with the cam or showed a picture taken to make sure it doesn't take crap pictures like my D2.

    This my Ne2 is up next month, gives plenty of time for people to root and clean up the phone see how it really performs. And for the price to come down :D

    Far too expen$ive for what I've seen in the vid. Drop it by $150 and it might get my attention.
