LOL - some of you will know what I mean when I say that I'm *ELATED* to be the FIRST person in my area code to get the Bionic.
Kind of funny, the official Verizon store is roughly 65 miles away, so first thing after dropping my kids off at school, I broke the speed barrier to be there before they opened the doors. I got there first and was hanging out on the curb and all kinds of people started showing up waiting for the Bionic.
Couldn't tell you just how many people ended up with one and how many got turned away, but I was the first one in half my state!! (my state is split into only 2 area codes, literally in half)
Now, after a full day of work, time to play, but the short time I've had it, I've made several calls -everything comes through VERY clear, VERY responsive (impressive speed and visuals considering I just came from a 1.25GHz overclocked D1), the texts come through and send out quickly even though there's no actual 3G here yet. I did get to download a file in the 4GLTE location I purchased it and hit just a hair over 18Mbps download speed... VERY nice for a phone!
The battery life so far is unremarkable. I've taken 14 phone calls, 1 of them was an hour-long, as well as 11 text, watched Black Label Society's Overlord video on YouTube, and my battery level is at 70% (via Settings > About Phone > Status) - BUT, I did turn off everything that I wasn't using, like Google Networks, sync, and the like...
Now off to configure it for the rest of the night...
