    I would not hesitate but I really want to wait for something with a newer technology screen..correct me if I am wrong but wont the Super AMOLED (or any flavor of them) use far less battery?

    The big advantages of the bionic screen should be less strain on the battery and easier to see in the daylight.

    I had some hands on time with the Bionic last week in Dallas and I can tell you that Moto has improved the qHD screen quite a bit since the X2 was released. It's still not a vivid as a SAMOLED, but it's far superior in sunlight.

    Really....do you feel better now?

    This is an internet forum, a place to discuss topics and ask questions.

    eh... a bit.

    I agree with discussing, but not asking something that could easily looked up. If you had said:

    "After doing some research, most sources say that pentiles are more battery efficient than Super AMOLED screens, but it seems like because of blank and blank and blank, I think that Super AMOLED should be more efficient, what do you think?"

    Then yes you are encouraging a discussion. What you did was come in and ask us to do the research for you.
