    Wait and see how the Bionic is. What is wrong with your Thunderbolt?

    Trust me, thunderbolt wins. It definitely kills both.

    I don't care how dual core a phone is, the user experience has to be good.

    Spoken from experience with all three

    Besides the same issues most ppl had with the tb (rebooting & such) I just don't think the phone is user friendly. I've always has Motorola phones & don't care for htc's phones. I also read a press release from an htc rep saying they are holding the gingerbread release for tb because the phone has enough bugs they are working on & releasing 2.3 would cause a lot more at this point.

    Yup.. the dx was kinda ok but the new x2 and d3 are absolute crap.. if u want a phone keep the tb.. or wait for the bionic or sg2... Not sure why u don't like your bolt but maybe get a replacement.

    I know you prolly hate HTC at the moment. But imo the Inc2 is the most dependable android phone on Verizon now. 20 hrs average battery life, no lag, stable gb (after factory reset). The only bugs are the alarm clock and HTC mail, which third party apps can be downloaded for. Also the Droid 3 and x2 still have lag even though they are dual core because of poorly written software and low ram.

    I disagree that Moto takes bad pics. I tested the Droid Charge camera and it was actually less sharp than my D2G. Check out my pics on Twitpic "Patfactorx". Indoor shots for all phones aren't that great but Moto takes great outdoor photos

    From what I've been able to gather, I hear the htc devices actually have less ram for apps than the d3's new blur. Where sense uses more memory (like 200 some megs from what I hear) and moto's new blur uses much less. I could be totally wrong, but I remember seeing that somewhere. But the argument was htc had to add more ram to compensate for sense using too much memory.

    Now, if we talk root and rom'ing. I'll take d3's ddr2 memory over more memory. I can't even imagine how fast this thing would be with better written software, its so fast already.

    I'm still trying to find this lag people talk about on the d3. This thing is super quick.

    Totally agree with you on that. Had the og droid went to to the droid 2 then to the X and then pro. Verizon wouldn't give me anything but a moto device. Took an upgrade went htc couldn't be happier. They definitely made a quality phone here. Still waiting to root with gb update but the phonebis amazing from the first turn on.

    I think blur and the new sense both take up a lot of memory. Sense may use a little more but has more available on the inc2. The d3 could have benefited from more ram. I can have as much as 240 mb or so of free ram on the Inc2. But even when there are a lot of items in cache the phone still doesn't lag, and it is good to have items in cache anyways. I just feel that HTC software is better at optimizing speed and memory, than MOTO is. I don't think the d3 is a bad phone at all I just notice a little lag when comparing side by side with the Inc2. The x2 is even worse. But I don't want to bust on d3, it has a lot of good points too. I think the x2 is not good though.
