Question Cell phone suggestions - Verizon - September 15, 2011, 10:14 AM

You guys seem to have a good handle on inside tech.

I have Verizon - I will not switch carriers.

I'm currently rocking an original Motorola Droid. I was holding off for the Droid Bionic and now that its out am thinking about picking one up.

I heard that there are a few other impressive phones coming out soon though and wanted to get some opinions.

Thanks

I still have my OG Droid as well. I'm waiting on the Nexus/Samsung Prime or whatever they will call it. Scheduled to be out sometime in November hopefully.

If you do decide to get the Bionic (or something else soon) check out Radio Shack (RadioShack and Verizon Making Sweet Music Together on September 15, Cutting $100 Off of Select Smartphones - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog) and/or Amazon's pricing.

iPhone 5 is coming in October. Sprint stores have blacked out all time off for employees for the month of October as to prepare for the release of he iPhone 5. Someone within best buy also leaked a phone release document showing either a release date or a pre-order date of the 6th for the iPhone 5. I'm definitely partial to the iPhone since I own one, but I've also owned an original droit, droid x, and an HTc thunderbolt. The iPhone is head and shoulders above those phones and with the battery life of the new dual core and 4G phones, i can't imagine buying one of them over an iPhone 5.

I'm up for a renewal in about 30 days. I'm looking at the HTC Thunderbolt. Looks good, thin, big screen and is 4g.

Beware of the thunderbolt. The battery life is about 4-6 hours if you are in 4G coverage. Then when you get the extended battery it becomes a beast of a phone to handle. I bought one when they came out and returned it within 2 weeks.

Bionic looks nice.

Thinking about not taking advantage of locking myself into a contract and just buying the phone outright.

*leaves to check C/L*

Just found a recent review on the Bionic. Looks promising.

Review: Droid Bionic is a winner
