Sooo, call me crazy, but I actually wasn't all that impressed with the Galaxy Nexus or for that matter ICS. Not trying to start fights with Galaxy people, just giving my opinion... This first impression was based solely off of 15 minutes of playing around with the display model at a local VW store, which I know really isn't saying much. First I'll start with the build quality. The battery door looked like it was about to fall off from the way the security wire and charger were attached too it, not too promising. The phone itself felt light and good in my hand, but somehow the Bionic seems sturdier to me. The screen: Again, expecting to be blown away and it was just "alright". I was one of those people that absolutely HATED the pixelation on the Bionic's pentile display, but over time, it must have really grown on me. Side by side and with the GN's brightness turned down to that of my Bionic's (about 25%), the GN didn't look all that much better. The reds and greens on a webpage looked a little crisper on the GN but it really wasn't THAT big of a difference. 4G Speeds: Ran a Speed Test app side by side on both GN and my Bionic and the GN smoked my phone! Only ran it the one time but the GN did like 16mb down and 10mb up, where my Bionic only pulled 11mb down and 4.5mb up. I was actually pretty surprised by this. ICS: Not sure how big of a fan I'm going to be of ICS, even when it's ported to the Bionic. Something about the lack of a physical or virtual "menu" key doesn't sit very well with me. I felt like I was fumbling around trying to figure out how different screens worked and couldn't figure out how to get into advanced functions within those screens. Maybe I just don't know how to use it yet, but it didn't really feel all that "intuitive" to me. Camera: The camera was pretty sweet and took really nice fast pictures. A welcomed changed from the original Bionic's software. Since the update though, my Bionic's camera has been functioning much better. Bottom line, I really think that with our most recent update (which has helped resolve connection issues for me and camera issues), and with further updates in store, including a port to ICS, I don't really feel that the Bionic is that far behind the Nexus. I'm actually really happy with my phone lately but thought I was going to have a whole lot of Nexus Envy.... but after this most recent trip, I can say I'm still very satisfied with the Bionic, which is a really nice feeling. Thoughts? Comments? Flames?
