    Like a lot of you who bought the Bionic on launch day, I have an upgrade this May. I love the Bionic, but I'm also pumped to get the latest and greatest this summer. What phones are you guys looking forward to getting then? The two I'm eyeing right now are the secretive Moto "X phone" and the SGS4. I'd love for Motorola to put something out that pushes the boundaries and can challenge Samsung. Nothing comes close to Moto build quality IMHO. Any other upcoming phones you've heard about coming out soon?

    right now I'm only considering the s4 and note 2

    I haven't been impressed w the moto build quality in the last 3 I had but that's not why I'm leaving moto

    The Note 2 is pretty great all around. I'm sure I'll be tempted by the Note 3 tho!

    Im starting to consider what my next one will be also. Looking at the s4, maybe some other options will come up. I have an upgrade available in March, and 2 in June. Think I will take the March one, and get my parents new phones together in June.

    I may get another maxx or an m in march. Then again i may wait until i/o and see if the x gets announced. I hope the x comes out in lte since it's also supposed to be on google play.

    With out a doubt I am dumping Motorola for a Samsung. This Bionic has been a huge letdown.

    Yeah, I'm also looking at Samsung this time around. If the prospected specs are to be believed, the S4 sounds like it is going to be the one to beat.

    I got VZW to give me an early upgrade a couple weeks ago and got a DNA.
    I couldn't be happier. The Note2 is just too big to be a comfortable pocket device and every SIII I've played with has been laggy.

    Trying really hard to save my march upgrade until google i/o to see if the xphone launches with (or without) klp. Shouldn't be too hard. I do have 2 bionics and a maxx to screw with. :)

    If the X is everything they said it would be, that will be my next phone! Even tho my upgrade is in May too, I can wait a bit longer. My Bionic is working just fine. (except my battery isn't lasting quite as long as it used to.)

    I am definitely waiting for the Moto X Phone, or at least waiting to see if it will have LTE or not... If it doesn't have LTE I will be extremely disappointed! That will probably send me over to the SGS4 or Note 3 depending on what is out and available.

    I'm pretty happy still with my Bionic, especially after getting Hashes CM10.1 up and running on it! =)

    Considering the X Phone is a few months away still, and plus the fact it's 2013, a phone out of Verizon and Motorola without LTE would be a rare sight.

    Basically, I'm sure it'll have LTE.

    Got annoyed with my RAZR maxx and jumped back on my bionic for a while. The RAZR isn't even close. Period. Now there's no way I'm burning my march upgrade before the x comes out. No Motorola arm 4 phone is as good as the bionic and even the 2nd gen razrs aren't an order of magnitude better. Incremental increases only. I think the x will be like going d1 to bionic all over again.

    so torn on this. Would love to get the S4 or something else new but then I have to give up my grandfathered in unlimited data :( Though not sure how long they will let me keep it anyway.

    Like others, I'm thinking SGS4 or Moto X phone. The Note 3 would be OK, but seriously - I carry my phone in a belt holster. Will they have one for the 6.3" Note 3?

    of course... Samsung always have a huge list of accessories... it being that big is a bigger reason to make a belt holster

    I was horribly disappointed with the support for the Bionic (and most Motorola devices, to be quite honest.) Though I've been a loyal Motorola guy, I'm strongly considering jumping ship to the S4, given the specs. Still, though, I'm torn. I wish we had more concrete information on the X Phone so that I can be sure.

    So basically, it's either the S4 or the mysterious X device.
