    Just went into my local VZW store and found a RAZR justing sitting behind the counter. The associate let me give it run through the ringer. It is fast! It booted faster than most of the apps on my DX load. The phone died but the associates said they had been using it for 6 hours of heavy use. I still have not made up my mind on the RAZR v Nexus v Rezound but seeing this phone and handling it made it a much closer race.

    I am torn between the HTZ REZOUND, and DROID RAZR.. Currently I have the Droid X.. I like the fact that the RAZR is thin, Kevlar Backing, and is splash proof.... Lack of changeable battery is a key factor.. Is the Micro SD Card Slot on the Side? It is coming with the 16gb? If I get I will prob install 32gb from my droid X ... -Sean

    6 hours with heavy use? I guess that's not bad. I could barely get half that with my Thunderbolt with heavy use. Did you find out exactly what kind of heavy use the Verizon rep was talking about? Was it always on 4g?

    Yes, the Micro SD slot will be on the side next to the SIM card slot. They're accessible by opening a small door. It's coming with a 16 gb sd card. Also, if you're really concerned about not being able to reboot the phone when it freezes due to the sealed battery, I wouldn't worry because it's going to have some kind of button combination to hard boot the phone.

    The SD card was "easily" accessible. The door is probably a necessary evil. It was hard to peel away but, it is easier than having to do a battery pull like you have to on the DX.

    I couldn't they asked me not to. And since they told me when the stock was coming in and how I could get one early I thought I should oblige.

    No pics causes most to send up the Bull S*** flag on such claims...

    You're right. I was just letting everyone know so they could check their stores to see if they had it too if they really wanted to see it.

    I didn't think to take a picture because my OG Droid is pretty laggy right now so I didn't even think to use it as a camera. Also I'm more interested in the Nexus so it wasn't that important for me.

    I'll probably go back tomorrow and take a picture.

    I have to return a bunch of Bionic accessories that Verizon mistakenly sent, so I'll check my store tomorrow.

    The reps already had a model with the display lock attached, and there was an open space...

    How did the build quality feel and even though you didn't get to use it long is it significantly faster than stock X2 both using 3g I guess what I mean is it worth using my upgrade for it in your opinion.

    Who even said that it was fully charged before that?! they could of started using it straight out of the box at half charge! Let's try and not get hung up too too much on the details. It'll drive us all mad!

    I'm sure you're asking the OP but if anyone has any questions or wants a picture of something specific let me know. Like I said, probably going to VZW tomorrow.

    Also, I doubt anyone cares but Verizon has an accessory bundle for $330 I think it was.

    As for the feel of this device? It feels rather solid, light, and well built.
    Looking forward to receiving mine next week.

    Hey if possible, take some pictures of the RAZR next to an X2 and/or a Bionic. I just wanna see the size differences cuz in all the pictures I've seen online, the RAZR looks really huge.

    Thanks.

    just got done playing with it too great phone definitely buying it on friday and the lady confirmed that i have to wait until 11:11 dumb! The phone felt great and its very good quality the screen is great and no lag at all the camera does take awhile to take the picture unlike the rezound and gnex but other than that its a winner to me just have to see if the battery last long enough for me.

    Bionic Stats...

    5.02 x 2.63 x 0.43

    Stats of the others..

    HTC Rezound vs. Galaxy Nexus vs. Droid Razr: specs showdown

    Note the Razr is 5.15 x 2.71 x .028 So it's nearly the same size as the Bionic
    The Nexus is 5.4 x 2.70 x .035 which is the same width but way longer.

    The overseas reviews of the battery are very good but they only have 3G - so we have to wait for a true test when they come out.

    With the Nexus next to the RAZR both being off the Nexus looks amazing since it's all glass. However the glass does not have Gorilla Glass which is a major turnoff.

    Here are some pictures I took with the RAZR.

    Also some things I noticed; the screen on the Bionic was way brighter than the RAZR, white websites looked a bit gray, and both were on max brightness. Could be a bug because whenever I pressed the home button while in the browser, it would get brighter for a second.

    Not a fan of the power button. Feels a lot like camera buttons on other Motorola devices.
