    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?

    Don't know about the bionic, but someone should stop by & offer more help. Just stopping by to say welcome to DF.

    Did you know that Verizon is an old Indian word? It means: too much bloatware

    Welcome to Droid Forums!! Good luck with the Bionic if that is the way you go:biggrin:

    If you are referring to that odd post that is no longer there, it was just SPAM :)

    Kinda thought it was. And yes the bionic is the way I'm going, just as long as the price doesn't jump up from where I'm buying it from
