    It nothing short of amazing. I have played with the Thunderbolt and Charge and this blows them away. I had a DROID and loved it. This has the same feeling for me.

    Some people complain about the screen but I love that I can read it in bright sunlight.

    My only complaints is with build quality. Outside of that everything else can be fixed with a software update.

    The phone is freaking amazing nonetheless. LTE is crazy and I cannot believe how the phone works. Had an OG DROID and this thing blows it out of the water performance wise.

    Not sure what you mean about build quality. This thing seems solid. Unless your referring to what others are saying about the screen being a poor choice, but that is still up for debate as I can't seem to see the fuss.

    build quality on mine is perfect. Moto is known for it's excellent build quailty, and I think the Bionic carries that reputation well.

    Even tho I only can get 3G currently, I've noticed that web pages load a lot faster than my OG. I can't imagine 4G :)

    Fantastic phone. Fast as you will ever get. The back can be creaky thought if you are neurotic like me ;-)

    Same. I'm very impressed with the build and weight. I love that solid beveled glass on the display. Awesome!

    Simply amazing. Coming from an Env touch I'm absolutely blown away. I was supposed to be getting some rest about 4 hrs ago. Guess what I'm still up doing? :happy:
    Feels like the Bionic is controlling me...I think I may be a machine guys...

    Isn't sad that Iphone 5 is going to still be on 3G? lol ...

    Driod Bionic camera sucks... *super sad face*

    Everything else, is epic.

    This phone might get outdated by new phones coming out soon, but with the name like Bionic it'll always be known. :icon_ banana:

    Yeah, I'm coming from the OG DROID & I am totally blown away! Despite a few minor issues (which is to be expected with any new phone release), I am definitely satisfied.

    I'm picky when it comes to build quality. The display tech doesn't bother me (though I see what they're talking about). It's just how the phone feels. To me both the OG and DX feel solid to me. I like a heavy feeling phone. Most of the stuff on the Bionic seems plastic to me.

    The other issue I have is with the battery cover. If I put my finger by the hump and lightly press on it there is a popping sound. I've notice most phones with covers like this (Incredible) does this.

    Finally, the screen does bother me. But not in the display. It seems to be common for it to move or wiggle. I made a topic about it here. While I don't believe it is anything to be considered about (not like it'll get caught and tear off) it is still an annoyance.

    Those are my only real issues with the build.

    Either way I believe you'll be happy. Prime is still deep in rumor land anyways. Bionic is actually here :)
