    Hey all. Yes, I do have a confession. I like my Rezound, and I don't care too much for the RAZR, but it is also another great smartphone. People are talking very heavily about the Nexus. It's supposed to be one of the most powerful, sought out android phone of this year. Many people are basically making their phone buying decisions based particularly off of the success or failure of THAT phone. They treat it like it is the first smart phone to ever live. They treat it like people treated the very first iphone before it came out.

    A part of me is sick of all the hype. A part of me wants that phone to crash and burn. Not because I like my Rezound. At this point in my fury, I would rather people by a RAZR or a Rezound rather than the Nexus. They are even calling it one of the big 3 right now...but no normal consumer has yet to play with it for a while to get a true feel of what it's really like. Remember the Bionic hype? For the most part it was a fail. I like to see phones succeed this day in age because people put up hard earned money for these devices. It's not the company itself that makes me hate. It's the many people who have never touch it, but swear up and down that it will be the Da Vinci of all android phones that make me hate.

    So yes, it's a rare feeling for me....but I'm a hater. I hate the hype. If it wasn't so hyped, I'd say. "Wow, seems like a nice phone. Can't wait to see what it's like." Now I don't even care, because I'd feel almost as bad as an iSheep (I used to be one)

    No responses necessary. I just had to vent a lil to a community haha.
    Bad mouth me if you want. I don't care. It's funny to me. Mwahahahahaha! :icon_ devil:

    That's pretty much how I felt about the razr before it came out...everyone saying that those of us who bought a bionic were fools and that the razr would be perfect.

    Frankly, though, the bionic was not a failure. It is an excellent phone. Some had problems, but they are getting fixed. I didn't buy mine expecting it to be perfect right away, but I know it is going to get better, and it is still an amazing platform just the way it is.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to the nexus just so I can get a look at ICS before I get it on my phone.

    after the failure that was the bionic for anybody not in a heavy 4G area that doesn't travel... this is perfectly acceptable. I think once the hype dies down on the Nexus the ReZound will start shining a bit more. The biggest thing the RZ has going for it against the nexus is the 720p, as with any nexus device the factory EASILY unlockable bootloader is it's biggest draw.... which means nadda to joe blow, just us techies. What helps the nexus is that it is receiving iphone like advertising. The typical "soulless droid" image does not draw many people to a phone, and guess what, just the specs of it aren't going to either. The only thing that got the Droid going for people was the raw power image of being able to do anything. I'll vent with you cause I was one of the sheep that flocked to the bionic only to be seriously shattered and disappointed.

    I originally wasn't even considering the bionic, but my GF fell to the hype and like any good boyfriend (haha) I followed. It wasn't a total failure like LaurelRaven said, but it didn't live up to the hype. I had to root my Bionic for it to act half right. Lol. With the problems that it had, plus the screen, I had to give it up. I think the screen was the tipping point for me. If the phone isn't going to act right, then at least have one of the best screens out there. I wasn't too fond of Super Amoled either because it was a bit too yellow or green at some points. But super amoled is still a nice looking picture.

    The hype of what people assume a device will be is what kills me. Lets hope ICS is a great improvement and that when other companies get it, it will be stable and have some really great innovations. I'm still wanting some google wallet love.

    I've heard a lot of people complain about the Bionic screen, but I have to admit...I just don't see what the problem is. I actually like the Bionic's screen better than the RAZR, because I feel the colors are better and the screen is brighter. Also, I like being able to see the screen in the sun light.

    I hear alot about how pixelated it is, but again, I don't see it, at least not without putting it up an inch away from my face.

    But, everyone is different. I'd also say that every Bionic, it seems, is a little different :blink: I didn't need to root to get mine behaving right, but it did take some messing around with my apps and so forth before I got it really where I like it, and the extended battery makes a huge difference.

    Anyway, the few issues I still have from time to time, I'm looking forward to the OTA coming this month for that.

    I initially didn't have a problem with the screen. But I what happened was I was at the airport looking at things on my laptop....the same youtube videos. Yes, a laptop shouldnt be compared to a smartphone, but it just looked like how it should lool. I realized for the longest time i have been looking at the Bionic with horse blinders on, or beer goggles. So now when I play videos on the rezound and put them next to my laptop with the same video, it is highly comparable. The colors were good in the bionic, but it was the pixelation that got me. and the screen door look. Like you I like the screen better than the Razr screen. The razr screen needs to be green/yellow tweaked. If they ever did that, than the super amoled would be the best screen hands down.

    My BIL bought the Bionic just before the Razr and Rezound came out (I told him to wait but he didnt) and I cannot look at his screen now after the Rezound!! I can totally see a difference. Plus talk about a beast of a phone, that thing is HUGE!!!!! lol I think the biggest issue with the Bionic was delays!! It was delayed a lot, and it seems the Galaxy Nexus is in a way following suit. Even though no official date is out the rumored dates have been going on for what seems like forever!!
    In all honesty if the GN was made by someone else other then Samsung I probably would have waited for it to compare to the Rezound. I think just for the fact of it being a Samsung phone it will have some major issues which is unfortunate!

    A friend of mine has the Bionic and to be honest, if I was stuck with it (for lack of a better way to say it) I wouldn't be unhappy. It's got a nice feel in the hand and I don't see the screen as being an issue at all.

    I think some people are just never happy.

    bionic does feel nice in my hand. I actually like it better than the RAZR feeling. The phone wasn't a bad phone....when it's working right. I had disappearing apps, disappearing data connections, random reboots, and freezes. If I never had any of those issues, then I might be able to overlook the screen. the screen isn't bad, but it ain't the rezound screen. colors were good though. Just once in a while I noticed the pentile look. Had to root my bionic for it to act half right. It's a shame that I had to root it to get it to that point.
