    Hello to my old Bionic friends!!

    Just thought I'd stop in, am rather curious as to how the Bionic is doing these days. Unfortunately my connection issues got MUCH worse after .902 and I had no choice but to switch to the Rezound back in Febuary or so. While it's a great phone, I have to admit....I really miss my Bionic. The feel, the extended battery, the screen....everything. The rezound works, but it just doesn't fit ME as well as the Bionic did. I also miss Zumocast and MotoPrint. Sure there are alternatives, but they just don't seem to work as well or be as simple as Zumocast/Motoprint. Damn shame...


    Btw, I cannot emphasize enough how much I miss the Bionic screen. Sure, at first glance others seem "brighter" or "crisper," but the tradeoff in day time viewing and battery life is just not worth it. Bionic was full brightness all day, 4g, auto syncs, pretty much the whole setup. I have to take all the proper "battery saving steps" with my Rezound just to make it through the day. Screen is only at 25% brightness, is almost invisible when outdoors, and has a bleed over light effect from the bottom buttons on black screens. Man I miss my Bionic...

    Anyways, what's the word? Have things gotten any better? Reception? Camera? Anything? Or have we just moved on and accepted the few, yet significant, problems?

    .905 is the current version and ICS is "just around the corner." There are 5 ICS leaks if you want it now, but the problem with the last one is that you can't go back to .905 if you want to, you can only go forward.

    Did .905 make a difference? Any significant changes? Good or bad?

    Personally I didn't have problems with any version, but .905 seemed to help others.

    Right now the threads are discussing the different ICS leaks. On some phones ICS has kicked the speed up to 1,200 Mhz, but not everyone. If you do get 1,200 Mhz, battery life seems to drop.

    6.7.235 is the latest ICS leak (the one you can't go back to .905) and people really like it, but others are staying on 6.7.232 as they can go back.

    Actually six leaks. 2031, 2033, 229, 230, 232 & 235. Although most people stay away from 235 since there is no way back to stock. Most people i would guess are on 232 as it the next best more current leak and is the best in my experience.

    Guys, not sure what the deal is but I've been on ics. 235 3 weeks now and not one single problem. Nada. Stop to consider all these different "custom" roms and rooting proceedures you go through? Just asking so don't bite back too hard.

    235 has been out almost two weeks.

    What custom roms? The leaks are not considered custom roms.

    What question are you asking?

    You turned your back on the bionic for the rezound??? Get out of here.

    Jk question though, aside from the data drop issues, do you find the rezound to be a big improvement over the bionic?
