I've read the reviews about the Droid Bionic. Mostly they trashed it. The 9 month wait from some show until it was released. The Display and Battery Life. Yes, it had some problems early on but I'm running 5.9.902 and I want to tell you - IT's Stable and Awesome! My battery life is great! My display (Yes there is some raster and pixcellation) but I watch Netflix and Hulu Plus and I love the display (However, I wish that Motorola did the same thing as they did with the R2D2 Droid 2 - it has the BEST graphics processor and display). The Task Manager allows you to set programs to be shut down 2 minutes after display goes off saving battery life. The Night Time settings for battery power is the same one that I loved on the R2D2 Droid. I can go all day on a single charge and loose less than 10% of battery overnight. It's FAST! Very Fast. When I turn on 4G it blazes, but I keep 3G on most of the time because of the battery power issue. It's 3D! Using the stock wallpaper when shifting from screen to screen the icons go 3D. I love it! The display is Bright and uses less power than most other smart phones. Also the Droid Bionic has a FM Radio chip installed. Just install the APK from Motorola DROID 3 FM Radio APK Unlocks DROID Bionicís Capabilities and it will place the icon in your shortcuts. Why Motorola did not put the apk and icon in is a mystery, but it works great. Say what you will about the RAZR and Samsung phones but I'm totally sold on the Bionic as the BEST Motorola phone offered on the Verizon Network.
I've had a Blackberry 8330, a Motorola Original Droid, a R2D2 Droid 2 and I even have a HTC Thunderbolt and of all the phones the Droid Bionic is the fastest and best phone I've owned so far. Yes, I have a 2 year commitment to Verizon for the phone but I feel that the Bionic will serve me well for the next 2 years.
