    I went to my local Verizon store to mess around with the D3!!! Man this thing was fast and so smooth no lag at all. the 3d effect looked Great! Boy I want the Bionic more now then I ever did!!! Omap4 makes this one powerful phone!! When you click to go to the App draw it moves horizontally... Blur is much better but there is a lot of bloatware on it for Verizon!! Come on Verizon please release the Bionic early. I think I needed a bib I was slobbering so much over the D3. The guy tried to talk me into getting the D3. I told him I am waiting on the Bionic!!! He said he was too!!!

    bought a D3 for the wife 3 hours ago. Playing with it and its smokin. Just as a heads for those that plan to get one themselves or for a loved one. Make sure to turn off Global network and switch it to CDMA only if you don't have any plans of being outside of the US/Verizon coverage. Will drain the battery way faster trying to search for the GSM network. This phone I got my wife really is giving me a glimps into the bionics future and by god it looks bright.

    I just watched droid-life's video walkthrough of the D3 and its got me even more excited about the Bionic! I've been excited about this phone since January but after seeing What the D3 can do, its to a whole new level!

    I think it should be a requirement that if Verizon is going to give a phone, the name "DROID" in the title, it should come free of bloatware. When I think Droid, I think top of the line android phone, so it shouldn't come with all the crap Verizon puts on them. But anyways, the D3 does look awesome and we can only assume that Moto worked even harder on the Bionic.

    Give the d 3 a few days. My x 2 was fast for about a week then just one day I started getting a lot of force closes, reboots, and bad lag.

    Waiting patiently for my Bionic, NOT! I want one now! Wish they would release it early or give us some specific details on when. My Droid1 just doesn't cut it anymore!

    I'm with you bro. Honestly, if the D3 was a 4G phone I would probably wait until the Bionic is released just to see if it pushed the price of the D3 down and then make a choice between both of them.

    Verizon could have had the best slider on the market and candy-bar style. Hell, it probably still is the best slider.

    Same here my eris was awesome coming from an Alias 2 that barely worked and then it decided to be a woman (no offense) and only call certain people so I got a Fascinate and then days like today I had to restrain myself from tossing it out the window of my car after it started force closing everything

    I haven't made it into Verizon to mess with the D3 yet, but I have been doing some real world testing with the Charge and 4G - with the 14Mbps down I am getting the Bionic is going to be a beast

    I'm not the only one just seeing this in this thread, am I? Hold your horses cowboys, its release hasn't even been announced officially yet, so as far as we know this phone is 6 months away.

    Verizon has acknowledged it's existence, they wouldn't put up that dedicated Bionic page if it wasn't drawing near. Definitely not more than a month away. That Aug 4th release date is looking pretty probable

    More than likely if your phone slowed down and force closed after a week you probably had some bad apps causing it to do so.

    After seeing the video of the screen shortcomings on droid life, I'm not that excited about it.

    I went to verizon today to look at the D3. Unfortunately the only two demo units they had would not power on. It seems the setup they use to charge all the phone in that area was not in operation.

    I noticed a different model nearby popped up its low battery notification. I asked the woman near the entrance. She was like "I don't know. I don't handle inventory." I showed her what I was talking about and then she mention, "oh yeah she was working to fix a some problem".

    So that kinda made me mad that I wasted half an hour driving with Friday traffic.

    I stopped into Verizon yesterday to try the Droid 3. This is a very nice phone! The keyboard is the nicest I've used. The screen looked fine to me, but I didn't try any games. If it had 4g, I would have bought it. I'll wait and see the Bionic, but still will keep the D3 on my list.

    for the first week I had only 1 app, and that was angry birds. I find it hard to believe that angry birds messed up my phone. moto just sucks. Im praying the bionic will be different.

    I may just get the Droid 3, if the Bionics price is like to other LTE phones.
    Plus I heavily play emulators, and a keyboard would be very nice.

    You know what I think? I think you antagonized the angry birds even more until they became pissed off birds and that's what pushed them to the edge so they jacked up your phone up in a fit of rage! :icon_evil:
