    Not true. While I tend to agree with you that iPhone 4S/5 will not be 4G, no official statements have been made one way or the other.

    What I believe you are referring to is that some Apple officials implied that the 4G/LTE chips did not meet their design criteria. That statement was made several months ago, well before it went into production. Technology changes fast. Only Apple knows at this point - the rest of us will find out on 10/4.

    yeah probably what i was referring to which is what i said and he did say at that time that it would not be ready for the iphone 5. and if there was some new great leap in the chips i think wed know about it. but yup well find out oct 4th. My bet is no 4g and not because they couldnt do it. its because they need something to get the same people to buy again in 6 months without having to actually put out a whole new device.

    One thing to consider is how you use the phone. I am making many of the friends on iPhones or iPads jealous of my Bionic, since Android has so many speacial apps. I am in tech and Android has many more Monte Carlo, Chem lab and minerial type of programs. I can find data and formulas much faster from the Android software than they cna find on their iOS devices. The Android market is really best for tech people

    Your average person doesn't consider their needs when they buy a phone. If I had a dime for every person who uses their Android or iPhone for just calls, texts, and Facebook, I wouldn't need to work another day in my life. A lot of people buy a smart phone as some kind of status symbol. In reality, they could get by just fine with something much more basic and wouldn't miss a beat.

    You are absolutely correct. Most phones are just fashion items and people never figure out how to actually do things with them. Many times my wife or others will say why doesn't my phone have that. Than I will install it and show them how to use it. Most things are on both platforms iOS and Android, but not all. Many of the speciallized programs for science do not exist on the iPhone.

    return your droid and get an iFraud? You outta your mind? You can't take pics from a dirtbike, if that's what your doing. My buddys droid bionic takes very clear pictures, best I've seen from a phone ever. As for the "durable feel", my buddys felt great in my hands, more solid than my Droid 3. 4g, duel core, big screen, more ram, 1080p vids, duel LED flash, adobe flash, widgits, and all the rest of the stuff the Droid Bionic offers over the iphone, and you still consider returning it? Apple Fan, maybe?

    The best pictures you've seen from a phone camera? Apparently you haven't seen many phone cameras.

    I must have a bad phone because I can't hear any rattle, my battery door doesn't creak, and the camera focuses and snaps the picture immediately. Nighttime pictures are another story, takes awhile to focus and click and the pics suck in low light but daytime it's bam... focus/click. Using all the default settings.

    I still can't believe that nobody is complaining about the call clarity. Everyone that calls me sounds like they're talking through a pillow. I returned it today, thank god. Screw Verizon for charging me a restocking fee. The Droid X is still better than the Bionic. Bionic feels like crap and sounds like crap. I'm not buying another phone for a long time. Should have stuck with what works.

    My call quality was not bad but in the end I agree, I liked the Bionic but I love my X! Really gonna wait and take my time checking each new phone release because my X is perfection and if it was 4g, I would never upgrade.
