    I don't understand the logic. There will always be a better phone right around the corner. Soon we'll see something better than the Razr. At the time, the Bionic was the best phone. Now it's the Razr. Why is that Motorola's fault? Their job is to build phones and keep improving. Should they sit on their thumbs and not release phones so previous model owners don't get butt-hurt?

    ^^^this times a thousand!!

    Its kind of embarrassing to see so many people whining because Motorola dares to continue to try and make better phones. "its too soon, its too soon" kinda ridiculous IMO

    Remember when the OG Droid ran at 550mhz and then had an update? Maybe they will do the same for the bionic.
    While I am disappointed that a better device is out so soon because I also would have waited, I'm still happy with my phone.

    So because it is a little newer that automatically makes it better? A handful of phones came out after I got the d1 and in my opinion none of them came close to fitting my needs better. Better is always subjective. You bought the bionic so either live with that decision or pony up some more money for a new phone

    Agreed. Its the nature of android. You'll always find a better phone. While it sucks for the bionic owners there really is no reason why Motorola should replace bionics with razrs

    LMAO , all the manufacturers should do this , this is bull , I payed $2000 for my new computer and weeks later Intel launches Sandy Bridge , I demand a free upgrade . I payed $38.000 for my car and only months after they have a new model , I demand a upograde to the new model . I bought Battlefield 2 and now they gonna release 3 ? What is this ? Government shoud put some regulations into place to stop technical development , at least for 2 years at a time . And today was the last straw , I bought a chicken burrito from this place cause they didn't had stake , today I stop at the same place and they have steak , WTF , I demand a free steak burrito .

    IF I wanted to switch it would be the Nexus, not the Razr (just don't like the idea of not being able to change the battery). But as the Bionic works for me, I'm not going to jump.

    It doesn't suck for this Bionic owner; this is a great phone which has been bug free for me since launch day.

    It's natural for smartyphone geeks to get antsy and excited when new devices come out; it's also a fundamental that we live in a materialistic, consumer - driven culture, as do the corporate monoliths that help us perpetuate said culture.

    Ultimately, we made our choice; in a perfect world, we'd all be happy - as it is, some won't be. Such is life.

    I will say logic dictates that the Razr was largely through development when the ad campaign the OP in the linked post above complains about came out; in the end, this really isn't relevant either, though.

    I agree with all of the above. I was in a different circumstance however because my Droid Incredible stopped working and I had no other choice but to upgrade my phone or lose my unlimited data plan by going with an older phone as a placeholder. This happened the day after the Bionic came out, so of course I just upgraded for the sake of getting a new phone that worked. Now it sucks because I couldn't return the phone because I had no other phone to use, and devices like the Nexus Prime were on the horizon, so I was stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    Now don't get me wrong, the Bionic is awesome and I love this device and I would still keep it even if I was offered the "switch". But I also imagine that there were people in my situation as well who feel shafted.

    I'm not changing phones, even if they gave it to me for free.
