    I guess I don't understand why everyone has such a problem with the new razr coming out so soon after the bionic. I mean come on. The phones are not the same and will appeal to different people. The razr has some really cool innovations to it, but then so does the bionic. People who work outside will more than likely shy away from the razr because of the screen. Women will proly move to the razr because its thinner. Honestly if you do a little research on the amoled screen you will realize that it has downfalls to it just like any other screen does.

    The point is, the bionic came out late. Motorola isn't going to push back the release date of the razr just to make a bunch of bellyachers on the internet happy. Who knows, the razr could have its share of issues and quirks, which I gurantee it will.

    I'm honestly thrilled with the new technology coming out. I'm glad there are a lot of phones to chose from. I'm perfectly happy with the bionic and will be until I upgrade in two years. You guys that are upset because your precious new phone isn't the biggest badest thing out there need to grow up. The razr has plenty of things in its design to make someone choose another phone over it, and we haven't even gotten it into our hands yet. Just because the bionic doesn't have the fastest processor, or the fastest camera, or won't beem you up to nebulon 5, doesn't make it a bad phone, so just FREAKING CHILL OUT!

    instant obsolesence

    first let me clarify that i love my Bionic
    and maybe the Razr will turn out to be a bust

    but imagine:
    you go to your fave bagel store, and they sell u a bagel from the bin - you pay for it and bite in - it's ok, but tastes like yesterday's leftovers
    right after you pay, they pull a fresh batch outta the oven and the customer behind you gets a hot fresh bagel for the same price you paid for your day-old one
    wouldn't it bother you that they knew there was a hot fresh batch in the oven even as they took your money for the stale one?
    next time you wanted a bagel, would you go back to the same place, or would you maybe go to the bagel store next door instead?

    this isn't about another company launching a better phone soon after the Bionic - it's about motorola withholding info from its own customers just long enough to unload their old model (which they probably should have just cancelled anyway knowing it would be delayed for months and that the Razr was just about ready to go)

    so next time i have a choice between a motorola and another brand, which will i choose?
    they unloaded a bionic on me, but they lost my brand loyalty forever

    I gotta disagree with your analogy. to me the Bionic in no way "tastes like yesterday's leftovers"
    to use your example, if I got a bagel from the bin, and it was delicious and everything I wanted in a bagel, I wouldn't care if they brought out a fresh batch right after. as long as I enjoyed my bagel, that's what counts. And that's what the bionic is...it does what I want and is delicious, so I really don't care what comes out soon.
    The problem seems to be people taking a bite out of their bagel, thinking "this is delicious" but as soon as they see the newer bagels, all off a sudden theirs isn't so tasty anymore. Its called buyers remorse.

    After carrying Motorola radios for over 30 years at work, I tried a Palm Treo as my first smart phone. OK at the time but nothing memorable. I rooted and OC'd my Droid 1. It was rock solid. My great granddaughter still using for "Talking Tom," "Talking Rex," etc. I looked forward to my Bionic and it works flawlessly. I rooted it an installed "leaked update." It fixed the slow camara. The only connctivity issue I ever saw with blue tooth. Havn't seen any problem or issue since I updated. When I'm looking for my next phone it will an Android and Motorola will be one of my considerations

    If I had to choose between the two phones, I'd take the bionic.

    Some people have different taste. Some people will toast there bagel and some are happy to just nuke it in a microwave.

    Gah... Not this again. ;) Moto released the Bionic because the public really wanted it. Their real phone in mind was of course the Razr. For everyone complaining that the Bionic is forgotten, I was watching some stuff on Hulu and of course a couple of the corney Bionic commercials came on. I've also seen several bill boards. I doubt the general public even really knows fully about the Razr yet.
    Here's what it all boils down to... We love in a free market system, caveat emptor. Nobody forced you to get the Bionic! :)

    The only correct way to look at the baegal analogy is to by the day old one and get back in line until you get back to the front and get the new batch long after theirs were thrown out

    Love my Bionic thankfully Motorola didn't cancel it & the finished product looks better than the one they showed in April 2011...also I've never seen 2 bagel shops next door to each other....also who would want to stand in line waiting for a fresh bagel in September if they said the next batch was coming in out of the oven in November....just sayin this is a bad analogy, on a side note I did have a bagel this morning, with regular philly cream cheese-yes it was delicious.

    If we're gonna use the bagel analogy, then the Bionic situation would be the bagel that was promised with cinnamon and raisins, and lots of yummy cream cheese piled on it, but what you got was something that wasn't baked all the way through and has bugs in other parts. But the "nice" parts taste like the best bagel ever! You just can't enjoy the whole thing.

    The Razr is getting the same hype that the Bionic got, but I have no reason to expect it will be any better than the Bionic,... it comes from the same bakery as the Bionic did.

    Someone call the health inspectors!!

    I think it depends on what your experience is with a device-if it appeals to you visually, does what you want when you want it to or better and the things that are buggy or broken are either not noticeable or of no concern to you/not an inconvenience to you then it wins the prize as the best device ever to you lol

    However if you get the device and it has HTC sense & you are not a fan or your new droid 3 makes maniac mansion's theme music sound like it came off blue ray then you're more apt to say it's junk...also bagel with cinnamon & raisins? Eww I knew someone out there had to be buying those or the stores wouldn't make them-I'm just not sure how you are buying bagels all over the U.S. each morning & I've never seen you...

    Sorry that came out pretty confusing it was supposed to be saying the analogy is useless because they release these things so quickly that everytime you buy one there's a new one a few days/weeks later which is true for all phone manufactures its just usually not on the same carrier. This time it was. Assume when I bought my thunderbolt that I yelled at HTC and said hey you released a new evo and I just bought a phone give me it. For this to make since.we have to assume the evo would work on Verizon but the point is the same does this situation aggrivate me slightly I would rather keep my bionic sounds like the real way to fix this is for Verizon to have a longer exchange period hope that makes more sense

    I look at it this way, if you don't like your Bionic, sell it on eBay and get a new phone. Simple as that. Join that message board and stop posting nonsense on this one. The next newest and greatest thing is ALWAYS going to be right around the corner. You had better get used to that or you're going to spend the rest of your life miserable chasing technology. Good luck with your new phone.

    I will be ditching this phone, but why do you feel the need to want me to stop talking about my Bionic's problems? Grow up! This isnt about "our team" vs. "their team". What do you care so much if I let others know about Bionic problems before they buy one? What do you care if someone buys a different phone other than the Bionic?

    Its ridiculous how offended some of y'all get if anyone says they dont like this phone, even if they have very valid reasons.
