    If you love your Thunderbolt and love how HTC's phones work with Sense and all that, the Razr won't be much better (if at all) for you than the Bionic was. It has some slightly better specs and a better screen, but will still have Moto's UI on it.

    The Bionic is a great device.
    If you didnt like the Bionic you probably wont like the RAZR, it's essentially the same device in a different package. The hardware is identical except the screen which has not yet been seen out in the wild and the CPU is the exact same just clocked very slightly higher, which wont make any noticeable difference.

    Was it the battery life of the Bionic that you hated, or something else?

    I currently have the bionic. I was pis*ed as all madness when I saw the razr announcement. So I pulled out my mastercard and said "this is going to hurt me more than its going to hurt you!" and preordered the RAZR. I am very excited, and I think they should have just cancelled the bionic and released the razr instead. I mean I do love my extended battery and all, but the RAZR is what the bionic should have been. I have gazelle sending my my box on one hand, and vzw sending my razr later next week on the other, so its all good.

    If making and recieving calls is the most important factor to you, then I would pick the razr. moto is known for thei radio patents. Their devices have the best recpetion in the industry, and they are the best at being the actual phone which is the primary reason most people buy them in the first place. I had a thunderbolt. I HATED that phone. I will never purchase another product from that company. Their phones have been proven by me and many others to be inferior in reception, call quality, and signal retention. They are more unreliable, buggy, and seriously not worth the pain and suffering one goes through to "fix" them with rooting/roming/hacking just to get to work as good as competing divices.

    I strongly suggest against getting another HTC device if you care about the phone part. Also if updates, support, and reliability are important to you then stay away from them.

    I realize all this sounds baised but I was one of the guys who was hankering for the blunderbolt back when it was just a baby rumor in september of last year! I was EAGER to get that phone!

    My bionic is far superior in the reception department to my coworkers HTC devices. We are all on verizon. My friends(both att and verizon) whom own HTC devices get inferior recpetion to other devices. It is NOT just how the phone displays signal strenth(as in the number of bars), it is the radios, patents, and how the phone talks to the tower.

    Just forwarning you mate!

    good luck...

    I have been torn on this issue since the Razr was announced. :blink: One of my concerns is the battery. Had the original Razr and experienced major battery problems within the first year. :mad:

    Might wait until a few reviews are out on the Razr and will compare.

    HTC makes amazing phones, the thunderbolt or the blundernolt some say was probably there worse phone ever. Not like every company's perfect cough... Droid X2 ... most of HTC phones are great. The incredible line is known fore performance stability and great user interface .

    I live in a high desert area, and even though in town Verizon is great, when you start getting out in the fringe areas, it starts showing which phones are really phones and which are bricks.
    That is one reason why the fascinate I had for a few days was just that, a fascinate I had for a few days. It was terrible. So, I went to Moto, and have no complaints. It pulls a signal where the fascinate did nothing but look like a piece of plastic.
    However, I have a few friends with Dincs. I believe both are Dinc 1s, but could be mistaken. They pull signals where my moto pullls signals and sound just as good as my moto (Droid X). In fact, in one area, a Dinc can pull 3G, and my Moto can't.

    So, as much as I understand that moto is famous for radios (had them in my government vehicles for many years), I also believe, the Dinc was just as good.

    I cannot speak for the TB since this area is only 3G, and I know of no one who went with a TB.

    But now it comes down to the fact that all high-end phones from Verizon appear to be LTE capable, so even if LTE is never used, to get a high-end phone, an LTE phone is needed.

    But I sure will look closely at the rezound as wells as the Razr. And I still say the biggest fault with the Razr is you cannot (easily) remove the battery.

    battery life

    Perhaps your setting were messed up. My bionic has great battery life and i mean that. I am a heavy user.
    i bought the extended battery and my bionic has lasted two days and change.
    The regular battery lasted me about 16hrs
    I already ordered the razr coming on the 10th of nov.
    nuff said.
    oh and for all you android moto users check your bills found out yesterday that those preloaded games apps charger you 6.99 for
    subscribing to the game. Ever if you delete the game it will still bill you. You have to manually unsubscribe.
    its under data charges in you verizon bill????

    blur is not as big or intrusive as sense either. Motorola has really listened to its customers. Blur is getting smaller, and less intrusive with each successive generation. It has been said that it is the closest thing to vanilla as you can get without having to buy a samsung phone(meh!). Seriously go into the device and look how book the UI is... Sense is MUCH larger. It is pretty, and much of its additions are fairly functional(like the application scroller in the pull down bar) but for the most part it just slows it down too much for my taste. Oh well each to their own i guess! :icon_ lala:
