    It's a very simple solution - they have beautiful stores in nearly all malls across the U.S.

    Wait.... never mind.

    The problem comes in that I will not know whether this battery will hold up until a few months after I will have made a jump to a new phone - Razr or GNex... Then again, another issue could pop up that would otherwise redirect my wallet in another direction - say for instance... a problem with dropping data connections...

    I have summed it up with:

    If you want an extended battery with really good life, go Bionic.
    If you want a much thinner form factor with sufficient battery life for a standard battery, go RAZR.

    If you REALLY REALLY hate Pentile, go RAZR (although I believe it's still pentile, the SAMOLED drowns the effect out). But there are things I like about the Bionic's screen over the RAZR (such as accurate reproduction, brighter screen, etc).

    If you hate both, go with the Samsung. If you love being wired with chargers, go with the HTC (I kid, I kid).

    I had to take the extended battery off - it was like a brick. The only thing it was good for was never running out of juice and self defense.

    But I don't think I woud say the Bionic was that bad.

    I stated why I like the screen more in my post. I also got used to the extended battery pretty quick.

    It's all in the eye of the beholder.

    From page 55 of the RAZR manual

    Crash recovery
    In the unlikely event that your smartphone stops
    responding to touches and key presses, try a forced
    reboot—press and hold both Power and the down
    volume key for 10 seconds.

    I measured and weighed the regular battery and extended battery. The regular battery is 1/8" thick and weighs 1.1 oz. The extended battery is 1/4" thick and weighs 2.1 oz. The original thickness of the Bionic is 1/2" so adding 1/8" doesn't even make it almost 3/4" much less 1".

    Don't forget about the extended battery cover. I don't think its 1" total, but it definitely adds more than 1/8".

    With the extended battery cover on, the phone is 5/8" thick (which is less than 3/4").
