    I finally messed with a razr. A guy at work had one and I messed with it for a few minutes. They're really similar. I do like the feel of the bionic better. The razr is wider and you can tell. Its also really light. Almost too light for my taste. I noticed I was handling it like Id hold a baby lol. Im sure its something I'd get used to though. Camera? Exactly the same one with a faster shutter. Still takes a bit to focus but a big improvement. His biggest complaint so far? No removable battery. Would I trade? Nope. I like what I have and playing with the razr made me like it more. I must admit I even had some buyers remorse when I saw the razr was coming out. Its gone now. :)

    I've had my bionic since the week it was released and I still love this phone. I agree with most of the OP's post except for the part about the camera. It's terrible. I'm still not gonna return my phone over a terrible camera but it does bug me that it is worse than my OG Droid. I dont expect it to match my stand alone camera but it should be better. Still a great phone though.

    Thank you for providing this input. Am certain some will find this thread helpful. It would be more helpful if everyone responding would give reasons for their choices. Thanks for taking the time to post this.

    Ah too bad I have no upgrade :( but I will say that hypothetically speaking as if I did the Bionic and the Razr would both be on my short list.

    Straight up I would say that the bionic has a gorgeous screen and I wouldn't mind the technicalities of the Pentile layout in order to get the better outdoor viewing and claimed battery life extension.

    Other than that, as you said, many of the other features are arbitrary since they are fairly much the same on both phones.

    The Razr is dead sexy. I was very impressed when I saw it in person and was certainly wowed by the thinness of the thing. I would get the Razr just for its looks. Especially since I'm pretty confident it would otherwise function as a smartphone should. It's cool that the back is made of kevlar but in all seriousness I wouldn't have noticed if that wasn't advertised as a feature of the phone. So the thinness is the main attraction in my opinion.

    Ultimately I might prefer the Bionic over the Razr because of the better screen on the Bionic (in my, of course controversial, opinion). But I can't help but say I love the form factor that Moto has going on with that Razr.

    One thing I failed to mention as a "plus" for the RAZR is Smart Actions. At least to some it would be a plus. But it wouldn't surprise me at all if the Bionic ended up with Smart Actions too. Regardless, Tasker blows Smart Actions away, and can be run on either device, today. Based on what I've seen on the RAZR, Smart Actions would be much easier to setup for the average user, partly because of the interface, but mostly due to the limited (by comparison) functionality.

    Us CU Buff fans here in Boulder are so proud that a Husker Fan could come to such a stellar conclusion on their own ;-) Just had to do that!

    Am I the only one who just DOESN'T like the shape/feel of the Razr? I guess it looks high tech enough, but it's so damn wide/long and light. If that's what you're into then it's definitely a plus, but in the wise words of the courageous and humble Will Smith...."I feel like I'm gonna break this damn thing!"

    I played with it last weekend and it felt extremely solid. I actually noticed that before the thinness. I don't particularly like the RAZR and I don't plan on getting one but delicate is not my first impression of the phone.
