I know my complaints are nothing new with VZW and Moto but here it goes anyways, I've been patiently waiting for this phone or any 4G Dual Core phone to come out on Verizon, so today I walked down to my local VZW store (Atlantic Terminal - Brooklyn) to check out the vaunted Bionic. I have never been so disappointed with a phone. Over the past few months I've tried out a bunch of dual core phones from other carriers including the HTC Sensation and the LG G2X. Each of these other phones have been so vastly superior to the Bionic. So here is my initial reaction: 1. The feel of the Bionic is one of cheap plastic with no real easy way to hold it, HTC and LG just have a far better "feel" to them, one that is "solid"; 2. The form factor is basically non-existent an unimaginative, like they blatantly combined the Droid X2 and the Droid 3, with nothing new; 3. The Blur interface is non-intuitive and very sterile; 4. The sheer amount of bloatware that VZW has installed actually boggled my mind; 5. All three Bionic units I played with exhibited a glitch lag when scrolling between home screens and in the app drawer. 6. When scrolling through each homes screen and each various page, there was a brief pixelation of whatever image was on that screen before it sharpened up, which drove me crazy. All I can say is that after a 9-month wait for this phone to come out, I was expecting a lot more in terms of feel, streamlining, form factor, and operation. Overall, this phone was extremely disappointing. Perhaps its just that moto phones have never suited my needs. Count me in with the group that will be patiently (or impatiently) awaiting whatever the next phones from Samsung HTC and LG will bring.
