The Bionic has a 4.5 inch screen moron.

Thanks for all the speculation. It really helps me make decisions.

Shouldn’t the “Network” section mention 4G LTE? That’s a major decision making point for many people.

Also, the Droid Bionic has 16GB of storage, but it’s not expandable to 32GB, it supports up to a 32GB MicroSD card. So that makes 48GB of total storage space. Not 32GB.

You should get your facts straight before posting an article that people will be referring to for information.

The 4g is mentioned in the battery life section for the iPhone. ;)

Today is Wednesday March 7, 2012 and I am currently on my third bionic android since January 18, 2012. I have replaced the sim card card twice and talked to Verizon tech support again and again and doing the same things each time. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and thinking the outcome will be different. Verizon has continually tried to factory reset and even asked me not to install any applications which I did and still I get no internet connectivity. The “G’s” just disappear, sometimes the “G’s” stay but they are white and still non-responsive. I had to make a 1411 call today in order to contact a school in order to get their phone number as I could not get internet for navigation or address or phone number. Their service has been substandard at best some Verizon personnel promised to call back days later and didn’t. This has been a nightmare. 

It all started with the promise that it was a network upgrade to a possible interaction with my mac computer, this went on for fourteen days. By the way fourteen days is the grace period and after that I was told I was out of luck and they couldn’t do anything for me and the phone that didn’t work was basically my problem. The store I purchased the phone from Diamond Verizon Wireless at Park Place Mall never responded to my calls; dropped into the store three times and the manager was always out, never returned calls, texts, emails or hand written requests for a response. 

Buyer beware; Warning if you deal with the devil (Verizon) you are going to get burned. It is an election year and I guess promises, promises but if you want service you have come to the wrong place. Then again if you are looking for a great paper weight I would definitely recommend the Bionic.
