I wouldnt say I am an expert with the Bionic's camera, but I would say that when I take my time and frame a good shot, that the camera is inferior to the one on my HTC Incredible. The shots come out very grainy, even in decent lighting. I would consider the camera mediocre at best, especially given the asking price of the Bionic. Overall, I like the Bionic fairly well, but it doesnt feel nearly as polished as I expected for the price they want for it. And I agree with you guys that it is easy to get caught up in the "grass is always greener" syndrome when dealing with modern Smartphone technology. My thought in this particular instance is that there are apparently several devices expected to be released in the next quarter that are going to be basically 1/2 to 1 generation ahead of the Bionic. My thoughts, after using the Bionic for 10 days or so, are that I would rather get in on the front end of the coming batch, as opposed to the tail end of this one. If the Bionic had blown me away, I would have just kept it until my next upgrade. And dealt with any apparent deficiencies relative to the Vigor/Prime etc batch of phones that are coming in the next 60-90 days. But, it didnt blow me away. It was pretty decent. The call quality was about the same as my Incredible. The reception was identical (there is a weak area about 5 miles north of where I work, and I was hoping the Bionic might somehow be superior, but it was identical) Build quality of the phone, from my short trial, is excellent, I'd say a notch above my HTC Incredible. (which I think is very good) Overall speed of the phone, seems identical. I am no expert, but I thought somehow the Dual core would make an appreciable difference. If it did, it was not something I could distinguish, short of quadrant score, where it is far superior to my Inc. Just not something I could tell. Screen quality is a pro/con deal. The incredible (Amoled) has better colors and just a richer picture. But the Bionic, despite a lot of gripes from others, has a really good screen with a lot of upside. Yes, I can see some "pixelation" when reading text, but it isnt that big a deal. The biggest upside is viewing the screen outside. It is easily viewed in BRIGHT, direct sunlight. This is a big deal to a lot of people, including me. Overall, I would say the Incredible has a better screen when viewed in most circumstances, but outside it is no contest. That is my basic review of the Bionic. After owning it a week and a half or so, I think it is a good phone with good specs. But, given some of the phones in the pipeline that appear to be coming out in the next month or two, I dont want to get stuck with it and regret not spending the same money for an appreciably better device. If I had any serious issues with my Incredible and needed a new phone now, I'd likely keep the Bionic. My Incredible is still good to go, and a damn good phone (my favorite yet overall) so I am going to keep using it and see what evolves.
