Anyone worried about the 3 year old GPU, no sd-card slot, lack of removable battery?

I'm not a Samsung fan, but I hope it will be a great phone. I have a bad feeling that when it is released it will be trashed by the reviewers and deemed a failure like every phone has for a while now.

No phone will ever be good enough to please most of the users as I think we expect way to much out of these devices.

Well from that bench not to worried about hardware.....now.

To me there is ALOT to like about this phone.

SCREEN....its going to be beautiful, and HUGE but yet still the same size as the bionic(besides height).
ICS.....Thats going to be fun to play with for a couple of months. Plus all of its dual core know how goodness!
TONS of dev support. With out this, this phone wouldnt go anywhere.
Unlocked from the get go. Bring on the power saving gov's and OC/UV kernels. I expect 2.0ghz stable out of this phone and 20 hour battery life!!!!
World wide release.....EVEN MORE dev support! :icon_ lala: PLUS if they get it first, we probably wont even see any bugs. they will be fixed as soon as we get it due to EU feedback.

Google updates! First to get them, guaranteed to get jelly bean! :hail:

Whats not to like?

Droid X and X2 where good phones in my opinion and I liked both, reviewers told us they were trash
my Droid 2 was a good phone, reviewers said it was trash
my Droid Bionic is a great phone, almost perfect with the new updates applied, reviewers say its worse than trash and users are retarded for buying it
the Razr has not been released yet and reviewers have already deemed it a colossal failure


They are putting everything and I mean everything on the Nexus, and I have a bad feeling it wont be able to live up to the Cray Supercomputer expectations they are dumping on it. Complaints are already showing up about the age of the internal hardware.

the minority with problems on their phones are usually the vocal ones, so you always hear the bad things and not that often the good things. such is the human nature.

Very very true, it just tends to make you cynical when you buy a phone and everything about it on the net and tech podcasts is how its such a huge failure and you should have waited for X phone instead.

Like I said I love my Bionic it is a great phone and I don't regret buying it. I am even looking at the Lapdock 100 to go with it. I tried the Bionic's Lapdock but the phone was not ready yet, 5.7.893 makes some real good changes to the webdock program. The lapdock 100 is going for 199.00 which might be acceptable for me where the 300.00 price point was just too high.

I was hyped about this phone. Now I'm a lil discouraged about the GPU....OG droid it is.

If that's the case I would suggest you stick with the OG indefinitely, you seem the type that's never going to be happy with what's coming out and always waiting for what's on the horizon. That's fine though, to each his own.

I agree i always posted about the Bionics many fails and not the few good things about it When it wasnt freezing and needing a battery pull it was pretty fast also insane call quality.:blink:

Its kinda sad. The Bionic was hyped so much it was a super disappointment when we found the software was just not ready yet. I have to say with the new update I finally feel its darn close to perfect. Last night I ran a benchmark on mine and it falls just under the Razr and Galaxy Nexus.

If we could figure out how to get the processor to run at its true speed 1.2 Ghz than it would be neck and neck with the Razr. Not sure why Moto underclocked the chip.

Whoa the Bionic is not a bad phone. It's definitely not a disappointment. I could see myself with it for two years. The software has bugs like any phone does. You just need to give Moto time to fix them. The Bionic just came out in September. Benchmarks don't mean anything anymore. Dual core and any type of HD screen screw with benchmarks. And Moto didn't underclock the processor on the Bionic, they actually overclocked the 4430 on the RAZR because if you go look at TI's specs and website, you'll find that they clock the OMAP 4430 at a MAXIMUM of 1GHz. I have a feeling two different development groups were working on the Bionic and the RAZR with only the software being the common grounds.

Remember that leak of the moto site way back in spring (I think?). We knew about all the phones (in their rendered development stage) and that they would look like (in general) and we had a general idea of when they would be released. Because the Olympus got scrapped for the Targa, I believe Moto had the had originally had devs and engineers go from the Olympus to going from scratch on the Targa instead of just focusing on the RAZR. but that's my theory. My point is that these are two different phones developed at two different times probably by two different teams. The Bionic and RAZR are in the same market but appeal to a slightly different set of people.

Everyone complains, including you.
