Bionic isn't that sweet. The two Verizon stores I frequent have gotten a lot of returns on it. More buggy than ........
I have friends there. They aren't happy with the complaints

Seems to happen with every new hyped phone. I know the TB had a TON of complaints when it first came out as well, and then went up drastically when MR1 update was released and the reboots started for a lot of folks.

People always think the grass is greener on the other side, but I was skeptical on the Bionic when it's release kept getting delayed, as that obviously meant there were unplanned kinks to work out with the device.

It's like anything else though, it's a sweet device on paper spec-wise, and I'm willing to bet 95%* of the people that have gotten one are quite happy with it, but when you move as many phones as Verizon does, a 5% return rate can seem like a lot of unhappy customers. I've been an early adopter of quite a few phones over the past few years, and the pattern seems the same each time -- generally you're gonna have to deal with a few bugs until the first update or two gets pushed out.

I'm not trying to refute what Jude is saying either...just providing my commentary on my experience.

*I'm not familiar enough with the Bionic to really gauge the amount of complaints. The 95% is nothing more than number I pulled out of thin air for sake of my example. It's nothing more than opinion and guestimation, and in no way should be regarded as a statement of fact.

There was no way anything that gets pulled and redesigned for hardware issues would lead to a reliable device... Also after using in the store I did not see anything special about the device other than the screen quality, everything else reminded of every other Droid Motorola has released..

Looks like the manufacturers is following (That iDevice) by just releasing the same device over and over again with just a add on or update added.. Why keep buying the same phone with just a firmware update? Just root and add it to the device you have it would be the same thing.

Well, it does have 4G and a dual-core processor, for example, so it is a definite upgrade hardware wise. It's not like you can just throw GB on an OG Droid and get the same thing you'll get out of the Bionic.

Moto gets +1 for specs, -5 for software and looks.

Admittedly it took HTC a minute to get the thunderbolt right, but I love it...well until a quad core HTC phone comes out...
