I wholeheartedly stand by all of my initial impressions posted in this thread:
Bionic build 5.9.901....Initial impressions......and what we know so far
It's been an overwhelming success. If you go through the threads pertaining to this build, you'll see that about 9 out of 10 people say this build solves all their problems and finally brings the Bionic to a point that it actually lives up to the hype.
After 2 1/2 weeks running the 901 build, I have yet to experience ANY data drops (other than nationwide outages).
It's still running extremely well, very snappy, and its stable.
It still has excellent battery life, although I did calibrate my battery after I flashed it. I can easily get through a workday with moderate use leaving 4Glte and Bluetooth running.
Bottom line: If you haven't tried this yet, TRY IT!!!!! Especially if you didn't give it a good honest shot after trying the first time. I've said it before and I'll say it again, you CANNOT judge a build in just a few minutes. Just the fact that VZW has had so many network issues lately is a reason to give it more than just a few minutes. Otherwise, how are you going to know if it's the network or the phone causing problems.
As a side note: VZW has DEFINITELY upgraded the network in my area in the last couple of days. Areas in my house that I was lucky to get a 4G signal in a week ago, I'm now getting almost a full signal in. When I did a speed test before, i was lucky to pull a 4-5 MBit download and 1 MBit upload. Doing a speed test now in the same spot, I average 25-28 MBit download and 10-12 MBit upload.
Things are definitely looking up for us guys!!!! Hang in there!!!
