Seems like the bionic was set to fail.

    Seems like in the latest threads section about half of the posts are regarding the bionic and about half of those threads are expressing displeasure. The funny thing is everyone keeps saying... "especially after we had to wait so long." You didn't HAVE TO wait for anything. You wanted the phone and you chose to wait. I realize we all love our phones and that's why were here but it sounds like some of you seem to think Motorola owes you something because you chose to wait. No matter how good an r&d team is they can't possibly text every possible aspect of every phone and make it meet everyones standards... otherwise there would be a whole lot of perfect phones on the market. There is a reason there are software updates and patches.

    indeed the wait was long and expectations just kept rising with the wait.

    I checked out the phone and was impressed, but not worth upgrading yet to me. ICS phones are coming fairly soon and I can definitely wait a bit longer. Does it mean I'll grab a phone with ICS? No, but I like to have more options when it does come time for me to upgrade, but for now my Incredible is more than enough.

    I'm not sure what you are talking about. There are some bugs that people are discovering and announcing. I think it is the baddest little mofo machine out personally. But it's all opinion. As long as your happy it's all good.

    I don't have one so I don't know of all the bugs. But that's kind of the point.. there are bugs and there are quite a few people who are questioning motos build quality (which I think is fantastic) and expecting a perfect product since it was delayed.

    +1^ I find the Bionic to be a fantastic device. This is my third Moto brilliant phone starting with the OG Droid that some people found bugs with. Moved to the Droid X, another sweet device that some had issues with. Now the Bionic. Since I'm not a big gamer nor am I in need of the best camera, with 4G speed and clear phone reception this is one baaddddd mobie-scobie.

    Will any device produce perfect nirvana out of the box??? May go seriously gray waiting. In the meantime, I'll continue to rock the Bionic and see if there's something that suits my fancy in about 18 months. Enjoy your droid of choice.

    IMO, people are having buyer's remorse after purchasing a phone, then seeing the Bionic. The Bionic is the next big thing, until the Vigor.
