I must admit that this is the smoothest my bionic has been. Job update may be more under the hood stuff, bit that is fine by me @ this point.
I use the extended battery and it seems to be working just fine. Typing is so much better. I do not know why, but it is. In ICS, the keyboard would slowly freeze up while typing , then let go and drop everything in.
Used the webdock today. Awesome.
We should be given the phone of our choice for free given all the collective crap that we've had to put up with over the past almost 18 months!
Good night and be well everyone.

Typing is much better, a lot faster and accurate.
The overall speed of app switching is the best it's ever been
battery life seems great
pretty nice update though i thought a new interface was in this edition? don't really see to many new cool features...
Have to admit it is a bit snappier with JB. But it also was snappy with ICS. Then started slowing down to a crawl. Hope it doesn't do this with JB. Battery life is the same for me. A full day and 1/2 moderate use on extended battery. couple things that I hate is the power off button. Wish I could find a way to not ask me again if im sure I want to power down. O well. Still a bionic with new lease on life. Till my subscription is up.
"If it was easy, then you would beable to do it" Duh
The things you talk about have nothing to do with battery life and if you stopped for a second to think about it, you'd have known that. Having 5 Android phones makes you no expert or qualify you to give any advice (obviously). Don't even know why you think the rest of us just crawled from under a rock and this is our first encounter with cellphones.
The myth about Android OS "settling" has been debunked over and over again on this forum alone, do yourself a favor and search about it, maybe you could end up learning something new...
There are basically two reasons why a phone will use more power with a new OS (if screen brightness is equal):
1. The new OS uses the processor/antenna more.
2. Apps are not optimized for the new OS (use more processor time, loops, hang-ups etc).
The myth about Android "settling in a few days" stems from the second case, when app developers publish updates optimizing their apps for the new OS. All of a sudden the battery becomes better, but it has nothing to do with the OS itself.
