    Hmmm.... So I really have to decide if I really want the razr. I'm happy with the bionic it's just that the razr seems better other than the fixed battery.
    Thanks for the heads up...

    You could always sell your current device (whatever it is at the time) and put that towards the retail price of the phone. Not necessarily the ideal solution, but it's an option.

    You laid down the foundation with a blanket statement: "wouldnt downgrade my Bionic to a RAZR." without any fac... err opinions about another device that isn't even out yet.

    My big issue (and really the only one) is the lack of removing the battery. with all the ROM flashing i do ive been bootlooped before and have flashed on unstable ROMS onto my og droid..whats the easiest go to solution? battery pull!! not being able to do that turned me away from this phone in a heartbeat! sucks because this would be a beast of a phone if not for that single issue :/

    wow your post is about as useful as a fart in a hurricane, way to go. I'm honestly thinking about this myself and am pretty sure I'm just going to hold onto the bionic... we'll see though

    agreed.... unless a phone came w an extended battery as stock I'd never consider a non-removeable battery... I'm at peace not having to worry about constantly charging

    I wouldn't switch for the razr. People have already hit on the non removable battery issue, so I won't cover that. Instead, ask yourself if you'll be OK with the battery draining quicker than the bionic. The screen on the razr is bound to chew through battery at least a tad quicker. Also, I still wonder how it'll hold up in direct sunlight as opposed to the bionic's stellar view. If your concern leans more towards the processor... The razr's slight bump will be hardly noticeable, if at all. I'd also consider the fact that the bionic already has a great dev community backing it.

    In reality though, if I were in the same boat as you and not quite happy with my bionic, I'd take it back and wait on the nexus. Simply for the fact that it's unlocked and verizon can't screw with it. We hope.

    I'd trade my perfect working Bionic for a RAZR - I prefer thin and light and have charging available everywhere I am.

    To clarify on what someone else said, in my experience after I did the refund they told me I wasn't allowed to change back. This was from an Incredible 2 to an X2. At the time I didn't know the X2 sucked/would take so long to get partly fixed. Anyways this is what happened to me, I thought it was ridiculous but they insisted it was policy. Take the risk of exchanging it out and being forced to keep the new phone or getting the refund?
