Does it do voice and data?

moosc says:

if your in 4g it will but no data over 3g

jaydeebee24 says:

uh, no? that's completely wrong. yes for voice. data over 1x, 3G, and 4G (where available).

unless your comment was meant as a joke or something.

envizion says:

i think the original poster meant simultaneous voice and data. it only works on 4g for bionic.

jaydeebee24 says:

ahh, yes. that would make sense.

koolbon says:

It seems like this person is doing something he is not supposed to be doing... awfully quiet. :)

AusFest says:

Holy bloatware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks VZW

envizion says:

not really a issue anymore considering the phone is root method is discovered already even before release

AnGeLFaCe77 says:

The device is packing 1g if ram anyways

It's starting to look like Verizon doesn't want to sell me anymore Android phones. The It's starting to be as bad as a PC with so much resource hogging crap on our devices. I know we can root and freeze this garbage and I do, and but we shouldn't have to. The Nexus line will be my next purchase even if I have to go to another carrier. Luckily I live in an area with good coverage for all four carriers.

GrillMouster says:

It's WORSE than a PC, because on a PC you can uninstall the bloatware. On these phones you have to root before you can uninstall the bloat, and doing so causes problems installing future updates. Crazy.

GrillMouster says:

Reading the title if this post, I thought "hands-on love" was one of those surprise features Motorola touted. I'd consider buythat the Bionic if they added that.

sick dude...just sick

Johnly says:

cant wait for him to load them apps and widgets as stated by him in the thread! Go B!

gmonkey88 says:

City ID? that app needs to die.

KQCrackberry says:

Why on earth would Motorola use a side-to-side app drawer on the Bionic? The rolodex-style slide was the best part of the Droid phones... it set them apart from the iPoop and the Samsung androids.

patfactorx says:

you can change it... its a setting

Having a 120+ apps I find it much easier for me using side scrolling as I have a better idea what screen it is actually on.
I've used both but I keep finding myself preferring this one.
Launchers are so easily replaced with endless customizations to suit anyone's needs so no need to complain anymore. This is what makes Android great.

gadgetpimpin says:

There's cameras in every room in a Verizon wireless building..... I would be quiet too.

pDoG says:

Anyone else notice the gingerbread-esque screen off animation? Interesting...

Cubfan says:

Just like on the photon. In fact, if you turn off the launcher and use something different, this may be the closest to a true GB experience outside the Nexus line. Or you can root and do CM7 or something (if it becomes available for the Bionic).

Cubfan says:

Same ugly white menus that cripple the Photon where on the higher res screen, you get half the screen black. Looks like a strong phone for Verizon if the LTE doesn't drain the battery in an hour. If only it had a kickstand.

Chris4434 says:

Why does everyone keep talking about this phone, it's nothing special? The design is hideous as is the packaging. I don't understand why Verizon keeps trying to market the Droid phones to SiFi nerds with no concept of taste.

cornbread16 says:

I have to agree

Everyone is treating this phone as if it's some kinda revolutionary device

It's a Droid X2

And all these stupid videos and promos for a phone that's already been on the market design wise

And why does moto make such ugly phones?

Can they make an attractive thin phone?

But yes I don't see the need for all these teaser videos as if this phone is setting some kinda new tech standards

mooserman says:

What company do you think makes attractive phones? Htc phones all look identical and samsung looks like the iphone... At least moto is semi original, plus I personally like the rugged look of moto designs. Also FYI it has a ti omap dual core cpu, not a tegra 2 like the dx2. And this is the first dual core 4g phone...

pDoG says:

Its a wonderful phone, BUT does not deserve all this hoplah. I'm sure people can agree.

bladerunn3r says:

Wow. Awesome design, awesome packaging. I totally understand why everyone is talking about this phone, and why Verizon is marketing the hell out of this to people with taste. This is a revolutionary device. Can't wait to pick one up.

bladerunn3r says:

Revolutionary device? You fool - in 36 months this phone will be outdated and forgotten. And in 2014, when I get my octo-core 6G flying super-phone I going to laugh at you for buying the Bionic. FAIL!

thevoice says:

In 36 months it will be time for an upgrade anyways. If it can stay relevant for 3 years then that's awesome. I think you just sold me this phone thanks.
