My wife recently got the Droid Bionic and this is her first smartphone. She is a bit frustrated with the phone and I was hoping the members here could help. Please note, I would like to keep her phone as close to stock as possible as she isn't the most tech savvy person when it comes to these things.
1> She doesn't like all the bloatware installed on the phone and would like a way to remove various icons from the application menu. What is the easist way to do this?
2> She would like a bit more battery life out of the phone. I have read on the forums from folks who talk about underclocking the CPU to increase battery life. She isn't running any major apps, so I don't think she needs the full performance of the phone.
What I was wondering is if this can all be fixed by rooting the phone, or are we looking at needing a custom ROM? Also, since I am not 100% clear on rooting, after I root the phone, when she uses it, will she still be using the phone under root where she could accidentally break it? If I remember correct, after rooting the phone I can manually delete apps from the phone; I am unsure though how to underclock the CPU.
If anyone could point me to some good resources or give me some instructions I would really appreciate it. I just want her to love her phone as much as I love mine. Although my love for my little R2 Unit is fading as I am longing for a D4.
