    I called VZW today to get another bionic. After still having data issues and noticing some dead pixels asked the rep if I could get a fru razr that rep said no. So I asked to speak with a tier 2 tech manager. Asked her about the razr. She said no in no certain terms.
    Continued to say that the razr isnt comparable because it has the smart actions that the Bionic doesnt have (oh yeah pull the old apple 4s siri routine). That it isnt a TRUE dual core processor phone like the Razr is. I tried to say it was. But she said that's what Motorola told VZW directly. On quaderant tests for the Razr online showing the score over 2178 while the Bionic (atleast mine) only pulled 1560. I know the Razr has more cpu power. But it's only 200Mhz more. So what's the rep on about.

    Funny, about what you'd expect to hear from Verizon. As they say, sometimes it's better to say nothing and appear stupid than to say something to validate it ;-)

    Ditto. Its like the rep was doing all she could to put down my phone and praise glory to the Razr. I've read the specs on both. I know the Bionic and Razr run dual core chips. All Motorola did was OC the processor to get the extra 200 Mhz to make it 1.2 Ghz vs just 1.0. They did the same with the Droid 2 and Droid 2 Global.

    Funny bit. I told her it was the same processor only 200 Mhz more on the Razr. She said. "You may be right. It may have 200 GHZ more than the Razr". I thought oh wow.

    My Bionic just scored 2098 on the first run, and 2126 on the second. Sounds like you had a bad run. In other words, the Bionic is so close to the RAZR it's not funny. 200MHz is not much.

    And LOL at the "not real dual core" thing. The RAZR is slightly overclocked Bionic hardware in a different case. They share the exact same chipset, RAZR's is just clocked higher.

    No 200mhz isn't much at all. Im gonna test by Bionic again when i flash it to stock. See if some of the running apps are bringing the rating down.

    That sounds like some RAZR bias coming from Verizon and Motorola itself (if what she said is true).
