    I am not in a 4G coverage area.

    I like my DX for most of what I do so other than 4G what would I gain?

    The Bionic is a bit faster than the X but if you don't have 4g and are happy with the X I would hold off for now there are plenty of good things coming in the next few months. And faster processors coming next year.

    I went from DX to Bionic and I love it
    But then again I am in a large 4G area so I may be swayed by the sheer speed of the experience.

    The phone itself is an upgrade tho.

    Thanks folks, that's what I thought I would hear :)

    I think I'll hold off a bit, the Prime is looking to be interesting.

    I upgraded to a Bionic and it is very nice and faster .. 3G in my area and actually never had 4G kick in anywhere .. there is always a better phone out there the next day and it will always be that way.

    I got the Bionic for the faster speed. I DON'T have 4G/LTE in my area. May get it next year. I HAD the Droid X. Loved it. I miss it. The camera on the X was 10000000000000% better. But I'm hoping FW updates will help fix some of the SW issues on the Bionic in that way. I guess 2 reasons for me. 1 The display. Yeah it's a PenTile. But outside viewing is TERRIFIC! Speed. I NEVER have to FC any apps or have the phone get sluggish. As for 4G. I'm content myself with 3G. Does everything I need PERFECTLY. Speed it blows the X out of the water.

    Just want to be crystal clear, "outside viewing" meaning sunny day, and the screen can be viewed clearly?

    If you're content yourself with 3G wait till you get that baby in a 4G area. Be sure to have fire retardant gloves on, though.

    I couldn't see the display on my X while outside in any kind of weather (sunny, cloudy). With the Bionic, you can see it while the sun is shining directly on to the display! I also think the B is a pretty big step up from the X. I have both and to me they dont compare. The B is sooo smooth and fast and next gen feeling!

    Your area wont have 4g within the next 2 years?

    I had the dx and I have to agree the bionic is way smoother.... I enjoy the upgraded blur and quick contacts widgets .. also my dx would always heat up especially while charging... I couldn't get the bionic hot if I tried!

    You would gain dual core cpu, HDMI mirroring and zumocast to name a few. I have an X also, and have been sorely tempted to upgrade, but like you I am not in a 4G coverage area. So, I'm holding steady for now and intend to upgrade to the next model. Rumors are it will be the Motorola Droid Razr. I've had my Droid X for almost 1.5 years and it has sold me on Motorola.
