    I'm pretty sure Samsung sells more than Moto. Most DSLR now-a-days come with high saturation settings as default, and you have to change it back to normal. Looks a lot better to have a nice poppy cherry red than a dull redish-orange. Just because you like having a low quality screen doesn't mean everyone else does.

    Okay, since you say the pentile display is "low quality" I assume your saying you hate your X2 screen (which is lower density than the D3) and that every other phone ever made (besides samsung of course) has a VERY VERY LOW quality screen. Must not be on the Bionic bandwagon either because it will also be pentile. Since when is a 720p display "low quality"? qhd = similar to 720p (not exact) And your also calling me a liar, since I have had BOTH devices and didn't hesitate getting a D3 because the difference wasn't enough to pay double for.

    In the end, it doesn't matter. Its not coming to verizon and it's a stupid choice on their part.

    Keep calling me a liar it wont change the facts of what I saw with my own eyes. Didn't know you could change display settings on the samsung devices, I just learned something new.

    I think it's funny how first the unannounced and unknown SGSII was going to smoke the unreleased Bionic, and now people are suggesting waiting for the unannounced and unknown Vigor which will "surely" smoke the unreleased Bionic.

    I think it's funnier that you don't realize the SGSII came onto the market in May and it still beats the Bionic other than 4g LTE that still hasn't been released.

    I'm not a samsung fan, most of their phones are straight plastic, but the Bionic is late as hell to the party.

    I suspect a hardware change, a slider with a QWERTY. And maybe even more than just that. I dont think they want to consider it a Galaxy S2 anymore with a slider because Samsung just yesterday established a new naming convention for their phones:

    Here is a link

    W = A mid tier device like the Samsung Galaxy W
    R = Just one tier below the premium devices. Normally cuts a little horsepower to bring the price down some. Like the Samsung Galaxy R
    S = Flagship power phones. We all know this. Galaxy S, Galaxy S2 etc etc
    M = Budget phone basically.
    Y = Absolute entry level, lower than M.


    Pro = A phone with a QWERTY like the Galaxy M Pro
    Plus = Update of an older model. Like the Galaxy S Plus which was a Galaxy S with a faster processor.
    LTE = Obvious.


    So with the rumors saying Verizon has an 'extremely similar to the S2' coming in place of the S2 itself, Its just making me think its going to be a Samsung Galaxy S2+, or maybe a Samsung Galaxy S2+ LTE Pro. That would technically according to Samsungs new naming scheme make it a different line, but only barely.

    This also leads me to all the rumors about the GT-I9250 4.65 inch screen phone rumored to be the Prime and all of the mixed signals we keep getting about the Prime having either a 4.5 inch screen or a 4.65 inch screen. We all know when Samsung released the last Nexus Phone they then released a modified version of the same phone called the Galaxy. Pretty much the same hardware, but minor differences, like expandable memory, but with no flash on the camera, it also ran Touchwiz instead of pure Google, but the Galaxy S weighed less than the Nexus. But all in all, it was the same phone. Im wondering if the official Nexus Prime is 4.5, and the GT-I9250 is Samsungs un-pure variant of it with a larger screen that will launch later. However the GT-I9250 has been leaked to launch in the final week of November, so if it is a Prime variant, that would mean the Prime is launching before then.

    This seems to be Verizons M.O. as of late. I love my Thunderbolt but it should have been out 6 months earlier.

    He word liar never came out if my mouth(or fingers). If you really thing a penile screen is better than a smiled you are only foolingyours.
    Even if the colors are a little over saturated, id rather take that than something being dull. The green in the market has more white than green. I have a x2 I know from experience.

    Why must it always be a pissing contest with Android phones? My screen is better then your screen, mine is 1.2 or 1.5 or 1gz of ram, and mine can do this and yours can't!!! iphone users are united and bashes Android as a whole.. An Android kingdom divided...We should stop bashing other people because of the phones they want and just be happy with the phone you have. If I do not have a problem with the pentile screen it is my right if you have a problem with the screen it is your right. Just stop trying to force another who disagree with you to see your way... This is really ridiculous to me.. Apple fan boys would look at this thread and laugh at the immaturity that goes on here. Are we children? Cant we just be happy with our choice of phones and stop bashing someone else choice. The Great thing about Android is we have a choice!!!

    I've been thinking about dropping Verizon and going to Sprint because I'm paying a buttload of money for unlimited everything.

    If the S2 or Bioinic had come out within the last month, I might have been lured into buying one of them (and thus renewing my contract with Verizon).

    At this point, neither phone is out and it won't be that long until my contract lapses and I might as well let it expire since I could be saving somewhere around $40 a month with Sprint.

    In a way, I'm happy that there have been all of these delays because it has made my decision to drop Verizon so much easier. I will miss the awesome service but where I live, Sprint is pretty good.
