    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?

    I am returning my bionic. And going to see what is coming out in Q4.

    But not because of deficiency with my bionic. It has been flawless in the 10 days I've had it.

    I just want to use my upgrade on the latest and greatest. I love the bionic especially how easily you can see the screen outside in sunlight.

    But I am real interested in the prime and vigor. And whatever else comes out before Christmas. So, for once I am going to be patient.
    Bionic shipping Monday back to vz.

    IMO this is one of those "the grass is always greener" situations. If you wait a few weeks for the prime....why not wait a few more weeks for the Droid Razor/HD/whatever its called coming out by year end and then if you wait for that why not wait for the first Tegra 3 phones in early 2012. By the time you finally settle on a device you'll be into what could have been 6 months or so off a contract to get an even better/faster device sooner.

    As for me I have a Bionic (unrooted) and am patiently waiting for the OTA which will fix my only gripes with the device. After the OTA hits my only remaining concern for the Bionic is how long it may take to see Ice Cream Sandwich. I know Gingerbread saw many serious delays due to stability issues with the code (lets face it, until 2.3.3 GB wasnt even really usable and 2.3.4 finally made it good)....I just hope that the 4.0 release of ICS is rock stable so it can be ported quickly and easily.

    Umm..does anyone realize how fast the Bionic snaps photos? Its blazing..just as fast if not a lil faster than the iPhone 4. So idk but my Bionic is doing great. I love it and will keep it for a year and upgrade to something then.
