Ok. Let me say a little about myself. Im a young male whos in college. I love tech and would consider myself a heavy user/i know some stuff about the x and Bionic. So most of my phone use is Web, texting, email, youtube, streaming music and maybe 3 phone calls a day. So im def more of "entertainment" user....That being said. Here is my take vs the Motorola Droid X. I LOVED my dorid X and it was the best phone a year ago. Did i HAVE to upgrade no, but did I want to. Yes Ill start with what I think is the "biggest" issues for most users..... The Display: The droid X display was fine. Never had and issue. It was kinda dim and hard to see in direct sunlight, but that was with most screens. The Bionic does the "PenTile Display". It does have "some" pixelation but IMHO it is very bright...I like it and it is fine reading pages and watching Netflix. Its something to get "used" to but not a negative at all. The hardware: I liked the metal feel and backing of the X. It was a VERY solid phone. I need a phone to last and work when I need it to. The new bionic is a lot more plasticly, but still feels VERY solid, espically in the otterbox case. No issues currently with the moto hardware. The soft touch buttons do take some getting used to, I currently dont like them Software: I was running custom ROMS on the X so that speaks for itself. It was a nice solid combo. The bionic is already rooted but there is no SBF currently availabe so I dont want to root it just yet. The current software is KINDA buggy, litttle annoying things that i hope an update will fix. Camera: I have used the X's camera, the blackberry 9930, and now the Bionic. The bionic is by far the best. Love the autofocus and pics are clear. Very happy with that. Video camera playback is a LITTLE jumpy in 1080p, but other than that its fine. Dual core comments: VERY snappy, quandrant does well, little lag and VERY VERY nice pinch to zoon in browser with NO checkerboarding. Best ive ever used in browsers. Battery life: I was running the X with apex RC3 and an extended VZW battery. (1930 mah) THe bionic comes with a 17-- map battery and seems to do well so far for a 4g/dual core phone. Overall its not too bad. Not GREAT, but maybe 7-9 hrs with A LOT of use (user specific, dont not quote please). OVERALL IMPRESSIONS: Its a solid device. Screen is differnet, BUT NOT BAD!!!! Dual core is great and seems very snappy. Batt life is ok as well. Is it worth $249.99 (sale price at VZW).....yes. In my opinion I am very happy. I will be ready when 4g comes to my area Its not like going from a flip phone to a SGSII, but it is a nice upgrade from the X. NOTE: This is ONLY after 2 days, most of which I have been in class, at a bar, asleep, or drunk (college baby) haha. I will know more over time Any specific questions and I will be glad to answer!! Thanks for reading my quick review!!!
