    I have had my Droid Incredible for a long time and it has been a great phone. Have been eligible for an upgrade for awhile and decided to finally upgrade to something new.

    I made a snap decision and ordered a Bionic that should be here Tuesday. I have the 14 day period and have started second guessing myself. Wondering if I should have gone with the Charge for the Amoled screen.

    I think both phones do all that I need, but screen quality is pretty important to me. Should I get the Charge instead? Other phones to consider? I want to stay within the Android line for sure, so I dont plan on getting an Iphone.

    What do you guys think?

    If you're choosing from what is currently available, Bionic is the only way to go. If you can wait until the end of the year, you should have other comparable choices.

    Right now if I was forced to pick I would get the bionic. I would want to wait till December to see what's out though.

    Rocken that SSX 2.1 !

    The Bionic should be here Tuesday. I will mess with it for a week or so and then decide. If I absolutely love it, I will just keep it.

    Aguy at work has the Charge, and I dig the screen.. Havent gotten to really see the Bionic screen, so I hope it is great too. The guy I do know with the Charge doesnt seem particularly happy with the speed and other factors on the Charge, but they are likely both more than I need.

    I doubt I will root it, I never have my Droid Incredible.

    Never really found the need.

    If you're keen on screen quality and like the Charge's screen, then you'll be disappointed with the Bionic's.

    Definitely give it a test run, but within 2 months you'll have a few more options with some screens comparable to the Charge's but with better hardware.

    But if you're outside a lot, nothing beats the Bionic's screen visibility in sunlight.
