I had to bail on my Droid bionic as well for similar reasons. I opted for a Moto X from Verizon, and haven't looked back. The Moto X is compact, smooth, easy to hold, extremely fast, and does exactly what I want. Honestly, this is in a completely different class from the Droid bionic. Apps snap open without delay or lag, the camera launches quickly with a double flick of the wrist, and the Touchless Control, while a bit overrated, works well and has been quite useful. And the battery life rocks. Leaving both WiFi and Mobile Data enabled 24x7, I get battery lifes well over a day (24+ hours.) No more Greenify or Juice Defender Ultimate needed.
Probably the most important thing to me is that I no longer spend hours tweaking and futzing to eek out battery life. I just use it.
The Droid bionic saw some very great days, and it has been solid and faithful for a long time. It was just time to move on.
