Corporate stores can not release early, but nothing stops franchisees.

Thanks bro.

What is the build quality like? I'm concerned about the plastic vs. the metal of the DX.

It seems to be quit solid so far. Very light coming from an og droid. No lags, and 4g is fast. Blur does not seem to be slowing anything down either.

Default **OFFICIAL**: I got my BIONIC Thread!

So one day away from "official launch day"!!!!
Im strating this thread to allow everyone who recieves their device to share in one location.
Once you get you device, feel free to add first thoughts, impressions and pictures! Maybe this will help people who are on the fence and would like lots of opinions from many users!
Hope everyone enjoys what Motorola/Verizon has created

NOTE: Please refrain from posting until you have a Bionic in your possesion!
Mods: Please sticky?

I can't give a good answer yet I keep messing with it and when I got it it was at 30%. Activating and syncing apps and contacts almost killed it , charged for 15-20 mins played again almost died after 45 mins. I have also been on 4g the whole time. I am charging now and will let you know more soon.

The screen is great. I already watched part of a movie from netflix crystal clear. Walked around in the sun looking at it with no problems.

Since the D3 uses the same tech and same resolution as the Bionic, the D3 will look brighter and sharper, since smaller display.

I know that's totally logical. It might be the phonecrush playing tricks on me but the display on the bionic seems a little brighter than my D3...to me.

I think you have a 1700 mAh battery which is 200 mAh more than my X....

Not saying it isn't, since I have not seen one in person I should have put "should".

You have a Droid 3 and getting a Bionic too or just checking it out?

Yeah, I got the D3 for work. The D3 is what made my mind up on the Bionic. The Bionic will be under my personal account. Maybe when the phonecrush wears off, I'll have more of an objective opinion.

For brightness.

FYI, you hurt your battery. You're suppose to initially charge the battery until a few hours after it's been fully charged. But, I don't think it did much damage.

Phone definitely looks great. I may skip the "buy from Costco for Prime exchange" plan and buy it from an online retailer for cheap.

Does it really hurt the battery that much? I mean, do you guys set timers as to how long to leave it on the charger for? All my phones in the past I just plugged in @ night when I went to bed and unplugged when I got up .... does it make that much of a difference?

Fill me in please.

I thought that was for older batteries. The new batteries don't have the "memory" problem that old batteries do and can be charged "as needed" and still retain their full capacity.
