I considered the Razr but REALLY don't like the non-removable battery and the blue hue was annoying.
A shame really. I like pretty much everything else about it!
So. Still pondering.
Anniversary date is 26th so got plenty of time to research.
Maybe the OTA for Bionic comes out before that.
Anybody get ICS for their Bionic yet?
Are there any custom ROMs that are better?
I'd rather not root if I don't have to, though I don't know if there is a way to truly back up ALL data without rooting.
I finally got mine! I upgraded from a D1. I'm pretty blown away at this point. I'm gonna keep toying around with it then decide how much to mod it. So far so good tho! loving the battery life compared to my 2 yr old battery on the D1. Charging every 45 mins. I can go all day at work running wifi without charging.
Droid Bionic : Safestrap v3: CM10 stock Jelly Bean (latest nightly)
OG Droid rooted
Project Elite GB v6.5 2.3.4 final
P.E LV 1 ghz v4 kernel (still tweaking)
Baseband version C_01.43.01p
Picked up mine today. Upgraded from a Samsung Omnia II (Windows Phone).
Really like the larger screen. I use mine a lot for Word/Excel and this phone is much better. Really looking forward to digging into this thing.
I picked up the Bionic a few days ago. I had the HTC Eris before that (rooted with Macdroids) the hacked rom worked great on the phone but the trackball broke and the phone just kept scrolling to the left out of control.
I purchased the extended battery with the phone (was only $25 for the bigger battery) and so far this phone is nice! The faster cpu, memory and screen is awesome. I miss the rooted part (wireless tether) but I had saved my old PDAnet from the old phone and it works on the bionic (I paid for that app awhile back)
It seems the battery status isn't reading right. on one hand it will say I only have 50% at the end of the day, but looking at the battery symbol on top of the screen shows more. Just wondering since I have the larger battery that the status is showing incorrectly.
I was also told when I bought it that there were some glitches in the software of the phone. So far I have not seen any issues with the phone.
I have returned to the store to look at the Rezound. The screen is the main reason to buy the Rezound. It's a 342 ppi (better then the Iphone). You mentioned the build quality. Well, imho, the Bionic is a better built device. It really just feels better in the hand. I have the extended battery so it's a bit heavy but I have big hands and I use the Iphone keypad with my Bionic so I don't mind the heft. I've dropped it twice from waste high. It didn't hurt it. I have a friend who dropped his in the crapper full of water. It came back to life after a few days and a bag of white rice.
I wish the Bionic would replace the screen it has (a Pen Tile screen) with the screen used in the ATT Atrix II screen (non Pen Tile). But really, the stock screen on the Bionic is a good screen. I'm just not sold on the Rezound over all. It just doesn't feel as good in the hand as the Bionic. And now that I've installed the OTA, 4g is constant. The camera works flawlessly. And my connection speeds are consistently 20 - 25 mbps up and 5 - 6 down (Phoenix, AZ).
How did you loose root? I am rooted forever root. Havent went back yet didnt figure I would get update yet anyway. I hope foreveroot works so I wont loose root. I talked to one of the devs DT he said when the OTA hits he will incorporate into a rom so we wont have to mess with it. Cant wait to get it though. I have a Thunderbolt and it does work well battery sucks though You are wright though I also have the extended battery in the Bionic and it does feel better in your hand than the TB. Hopefully the OTA will solve all the problems. I started getting better speed readings and better signal when Verizon towers went down and came up again.
Yeah, my D1 hit the pavement twice yesterday, thigh still firmly held in the belt clip that came loose.
No worse for wear.
I think u got your download/upload speeds backwards.
Was your 4g flakey before the ota?
I'm wondering, if I get one, if I should wait for the ota before rooting.
I noticed that the rezound was a bit faster that the bionic, at least in their stock states.
How much more uptime did u get with the bigger battery?
