I like my Bionic. I've had the og droid, the droid x, and now this one. I bought the extended battery for it and it's great. I get over a full day with regular use and about 24 hours with moderate. No problems with reliability so far. I think a lot of problems people are having with reboots and such may stem from apps rather than the Bionics design because mine has been rock solid, jmo. I love the fact that I can see the screen very well outdoors, you know real life use. That's important to me because I use it not only in the office but also for a lot of outdoor activities... GPS locks extremely fast. Apps launch and execute extremely fast. Call quality above average. Noise reduction from wind excellent. It's a solid device. Motorola usually supports their products well so expect updates. I have not rooted because I just don't see the benefits of rooting for the Bionic yet. Out of the box and even with motoblur it's an excellent ui imo. Overall I'm happy with my decision to buy the Bionic. It's easily good for the next two years if you look at it from a realistic useability standpoint and not the best on paper specs. Sometime those paper specs amount to no more than bragging rights in the real world.
