    Of hearing in every review how thick and bulky the bionic is, did I get a different bionic than everyone else, cause mine is pretty darn thin, has anyone else noticed that when a new phone comes out thats thinner than the one before it, it automatically becomes the better performing phone even with similar specs, I've come to realize alot of these big sites that review phones are all morons and really don't have a clue what there doing, I honestly think they just go by which phone looks the best and is the thinnest.oh and how can anyone say the epic touch is better than the bionic, have they used Wimax? its basically 3g, doesn't come close to lte, people rave about how light it is, well yea its made out of cheap flimsy plastic.people love the screen, well I guess they had to catch the eye of the consumer to take attention off the fact that it prob cost them $5 to make and you can tell just by holding it.ok I'm done

    I agree. The only reason why I got the Bionic was cuz LTE. The Bionic is a little bulky and thick.

    I think it depends on which GS2. I personally liked the original design but the Epic 4g touch is too wide for my taste. I like the width of the Bionic and the depth and length isn't too bad either. I still think it's one of the best form factors on a phone. IMO, I love the gorilla glass and how it's contoured to the phone gives it a fancy smancy look. :D

    Most that find it bulky is because they have added the extended battery, but i have large hands and i prefer bigger bulky and heavier, to thin and too light would be flying off my hands constantly.

    I 100% agree.

    I got the OG Droid due to its heft and bulk.

    I like the phone feeling that I actually own something heavy.

    I'd have to say what the terms "better" and "best" are subjective to the person forming the opinion.

    We have a live unit of T-Mobile's SGS2 at our kiosk, and I've spent a lot of time with it. I can't call it a better device. Real world speeds aren't better than the Bionic despite having a 500MHz clock speed higher. That, plus the screen will also drain the battery significantly more. Also, I'd have to say that Touchwiz 4 isn't any better than whatever version of Blur (or whatever they're calling it, now) is running on the Bionic. Screen transitions aren't as crisp as I would have though.

    Also, it seems to have issues keeping it's 4G signal. Not just our unit, but the ones we've sold as well.
