    New to the forum obviously, discovered it on my phone. My newbie retread question is....I'm due for an upgrade in 2 weeks. Due to financial restraints my options are limited to the Dinc2, Thunderbolt, Droid X2 and Bionic possibly. Which of these older phones would give me more bang for the buck, minusing the 3G vs. 4G comparison. I lean one way, the the next day the other, so needless to say I'm indecisive :) Help me out please!

    Welcome! I agree, out of all those the Bionic is the best bet.

    What makes Bionic the obvious choice, besides the fact that it's the newer one of the bunch?

    Ok, sounds like the bionic is my phone of choice. What if I were to compare it to the lucid? Would bionic still be better?
