    the screen is made differently than phones like the droid2. I don't know the specifics, but if you compare the screens from an older droid to the bionic, it just isn't quite as sharp. But I'm a nitpicker, and it's definitely manageable.

    How soon after Ice Cream Sandwhich comes out do you think Bionic will get the update?

    I really just want to wait for the prime, but I'm too damn impulsive...

    been charging for over 90 minutes and i went from 15% to 40%.

    and here's a tip. If you REALLY want to see the screen at its worse, load up the camera app and do some quick panning.:frown: It's definitely not pretty, but the still image comes out looking great!

    Got mine and have to say I'm loving the speed of the phone and the 4g speed of the internet. I had the best rep at the verizon store. By the time I walked out at 1030, they had alreayd sold 12 and that was only opening at 9.

    Just got back from the store. All went smooth until.....it tried to activate on the network. I spent 15 minutes to the point it first tried and walked out an hour and a half later with it activated on voice (but still at this moment no data). It wasn't just mine, either. There were 6 of us all standing around while the employees frantically tried to come up with a solution.

    That solution ended up being an employee activating our SIM cards in his Thunderbolt. All that being said it is charging so I haven't gotten a chance to go through it yet. :)

    Yeah apparently there have been a lot of problems activing them. Might be the servers but no one really knows.

    I am in the west coast.. So I am hoping can someone answer this question for me.. What do you guys think of the color? Do you like it better than Samsung's amoled screen?


    That is the only reason I want to wait for the Prime. I have got an hour before costco opens .. so please answer quick would greatly appreciate it :)

    Got mine this morning, been great so far. Did 8.7mb/s download first test on 4G!

    Very snappy, just working on getting everything I want from my OG droid to this. Sad to retire the OG droid :(.

    if you want to use your phone in sunlight you will HATE the SuperAMOLED screens.
    qHD handles direct sunlight much better.

    The car dock for bionic is much nicer than the DX one as well. Has a typical great speaker on the back like the rest of the Moto phones.

    Netflix definitely works and great. I just watched an old X-Men episode from the 90's cartoon and it worked awesome! No lag or buffering whatsoever!

    yes, netflix works for sure. I have not been able to get the stock Zumocast to play any of the movies stored on my hard drive though. I dont know what format Zumocast supports.

    I picked mine up at the Vzw store today. Got HD dock, car screen/GPS mount, lap-dock and a holster. $$$ cha-ching for my sales rep. My first impression is that 4G (which we have in Austin TX now - official date is 9/15 btw) is nice & fast for re-downloading all my apps!

    I got mine as soon as the store opened. It is Sweet! It actually seems like its getting faster as I've been using it.

    They had a deal at Vzw for today only where you can get the extended battery for half off ($25) so I grabbed that too.
