    I'm not returning mine. I bought mine on release day. If anything I'll sell it for this but we'll see.

    Wait and see for me! I'm sure this thread will attract another round of Bionic hate/ers. Thanks for that.

    I returned my bionic for two reasons: 1. All the annoying bugs- i had 4 different bionics all with different bugs. 2. The PRIME =D

    It's becoming quite apparent of just how much the hype over the latest round of new phones exceeded the reality in what they actually deliver, when the Bionic, with all of it's annoying bugs and problems, is the real King of The Hill as of now.

    Apple couldn't deliver, Samsung hasn't delivered to Verizon's LTE market, and now the latest round of badass phones is being put off until next year.

    I'm not thrilled to the core that my Bionic has all sorts of weird issues, but when its working, it is pretty fun to use...

    But as an embedded firmware engineer that sees as many issues as the Bionic has and STILL it's the best out there?... wow, the mobile phone industry really could use my services.

    ^Have you returned a couple Bionics trying to get a bug free version? Come on up to Minnesota, a buddy and I have bug free phones so maybe it's regional?! lol

    These threads make me second guess being a part of this forum. We can go on and on about wanting the next best phone. You'll never have it. You'll have obsolete hardware months after you buy it. I hate threads that attract H8trs!

    They are merely a pissing contest. Lets see more threads about development rather than kids buy phones and getting buyers remorse and wanting whats next. This is what's wrong with the country today. We're just spoiled.
    I liked it better when only devs would create new threads. Now anyone desperate for a little attention starts one after another after another. Some dumber than the next. Finding useful information on this particular forum has been non-existent.

    This thread should be named "How not to shop for a smart phone"

    Guess it's time to start hanging out at Rootwiki

    Sticking with the OG droid til Something worth buying comes out!

    Somebody needs to start some more stupid bionic threads.. so your returning your phone for the prime which you'll probably return for whatever is next.. does there really need to be an "official" thread about it. I've never laid hands on the bionic and I pretty much hate it.

    That's good. You're one of the group that loves it. I don't actually have anything against the bionic I'm just tired of thread after thread... most of them pointless. Personally, 4g is really far down on my list of priorities. I'm sure the bionic is a great device but I like the screen size and keyboard of my d3.

    Nexus Dual Core 4G LTE will be outdated in months? Hardly think that. Nexus phones don't get outdated quickly look at the nexus one for example beast of a phone till dual core hit. Not counting the atrix cuz that's a piece of junk.

    Now this thread is gonna turn into "Who loves their droid more". By no means do I have buyers remorse. As soon as I bought the bionic I knew something better was going to be out just like everything else in technology. From only having my bionic for almost 3 days, there are things that I love about it and things that I don't but I knew that when I bought it. When I first bought my OG droid dancedroid, that thing was buggy as hell and I started wondering what I got myself into. After I had it for awhile and some OTA's came out for it I became a supporter for android. The bionic is in its infancy as far as software but give it time and it will be one beastly of a device able to keep up with just about anything on the market for years to come. Just my 2 cents.

    It doesn't matter, by the time the Prime comes out, the next "huge" phone will have been announced, and we will see all of the" Prime is out dated and running old software blah blah blah " rants just like the Bionic.....IT'S A PHONE...GET OVER IT. I can only imagine that those people who wait for the next best phone are waiting for the next best car and are still driving Pintos. :)
