    Virtually the same phone, but the bionic has a screen you can read in direct sunlight and a removable battery.

    So IMO the bionic is the better of the two.

    Yes, but if its after 15 days, she'll get a refurbished one.

    I prefer the Razr because of the screen and more development, but the Bionic is a great phone too. It gets better battery than my OG Razr.

    i would not say one is better than the other. Thats a matter of personal preference. depends on what you are looking for .
    they are both great phones IMO.

    Battery life with the extended battery in the Bionic is leaps and bound over the RAZR. The Maxx is a totally different story. But as was said they are essentially the same phone I'm a different wrapper. One is not necessarily better than the other. Both are berry solid devices.

    If you can, hold both and see how they feel in your hand. You're the one that's going to be using it.

    Plus, you can't remove the razors battery.... Bionic you can. Plus when ICS comes out for the Bionic, the Bionic will be completely awesome!

    For me ( I got my Bionic after the Razr was out) the deal breaker with the Razr was the weird colors on the display, especially the white. Looking back, I'm glad that the display bugged me because the battery certainly would have. Another +1 for the Bionic.

    The biggest differences between the two phones are the screen and the ability to pull the battery and swap it out. The common opinion is that the Razor has a better looking screen under normal lighting conditions but when viewing the screen in direct sunlight the Razors screen is going to look really dark and hard to see where as the Bionics screen, while not perfect, will be a lot brighter and easier to see.

    - The big advantage of being able to pull the battery on the Bionic is that you can swap it with another battery or an extended battery. However if you're talking about the Razor Maxx then that has a great battery in it so it would not need to be swapped out with an extended battery.

    - An advantage with the Razor is that it has Ice Cream Sandwich but the Bionic will be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich very soon.

    - From the ICS leaks for the Bionic it looks as though the processor is going to be sped up from 1 Ghz to 1.2 Ghz to match the speed of the Razor.

    - The Razor is also a thinner phone if that's important to you.

    Other than that they're pretty much the same from what I know.

    The battery itself won't actually increase in size. However,top the operating system will more effectively use the battery within the phone. On ICS I can get about 15 hours or so with the bionics battery without having to charge it. It'll depend on your cellular signal, WiFi, and usage.

    I never used the bionic, but if that screen is anything like the x2 screen, it wouldn't work out for me. After my x2 i vowed to never get another motorola lol (my x2s screen was terrible for me). I doooo love my RAZR, that being saif if the bionics screen is ok for you, it's a lot cheaper and the ability to remove the battery is huge imho

    No I flashed one of the leaks onto it. I would strongly suggest just waiting for the ICS update to come out - it should be just a few weeks now.

    And there are 4 extended batteries available for the Bionic. Two are made by Mugen; one is small enough to fit in the OEM space while the other is very thick. Seidio makes one that's slightly smaller than the largest Mugen.

    IMHO, the best one to get is the Motorola extended battery. For one thing, the software and Motorola accessories are designed with that battery in mind. The other thing is, at $25, it's the cheapest one.
