    I didn't get the Bionic b/c i'm editing for the Galaxy Nexus/Droid Prime (might be different phones, find out Oct 11th). The thing with the Bionic is b/c they edited too long to release it. It should have been Verizon's Atrix but they made it different then realized that it easy better then halls the phones released at that time, tried to fix it and then released it 6 months too late.
    During the time the Bionic was getting fixed the Prime/Galaxy Nexus rumors/hints started and most ppl stopped carrying about the Bobbin, myself included.
    Just my opinion, no hate just saying.

    I know we waited. My point is that you can always find a phone to wait for that will be "better" than what you currently have. Unfortunately, they don't always live up to their hype. Just look at the parade of phones that came out between the release of the OG Droid and the Bionic. Some didn't last 4 or 5 months before being discontinued. I researched it a good bit before I started my wait for the Bionic, and am glad this is the one I jumped on. If the Bionic never gets any smoother or more powerful than it is right now, I could easily live with this phone until I am eligible for NE2 again.

    Anyone know what Radio Shacks return policy is?? Got my bionic on sept 15th. If its 30 days Im good, Ill just go back to my droid 1. If its 15 days, not so good. That said, I had a samsung droid charge that I was very unimpressed with. So sort of leery about getting another samsung. Does this one at least have a notification led?

    I don't think anyone knows if the Samsung prime has a led yet. Not to many details like that have been released.

    The no led was a BIG turn off with the charge. I assumed all phones had that. I totally relied on that with my droid 1. I have no idea how iphone user get along not knowing if they have a new message or not when the screen is off.

    My biggest gripe with the Bionic is the camera. I do like to take pictures whether its a sunset, wildlife, or a drunken night with friends. I think we all can agree that the camera on the bionic has a lot to desire.

    I fired up my X and used the camera quick. I hit the camera icon and it fired right up. I hit the shutter button and it fired right away. I really miss that!

    Even the camera on the OG Droid was better than on the bionic.

    Maybe I can grab the .apk for the camera from the X? The FFC wont work but until the update, maybe that would be better?
