    The Nexus isn't quite as good as the Bionic in the sun but it's not terrible either. I usually have my phone at about 50% bright and I can see it ok, if I kick it up to 75% + it's fine.

    I was actually debating on doing this exact same thing a couple weeks ago when I noticed Best Buy offering the Nexus for free. I'm actually starting to really wish I had taken advantage of that.

    Hello, the nexus does have its perks, but I need a good camera. Going from the bionic to a nexus is a giant step backwards in the camera depth. Also good luck with battery life. I've had my bionic since day 1 and it's been incredible. The only thing I had to do was get the extended battery. I've had an upgrade due for 4 months. But I've yet to find a phone that'll really knock my socks off. Even the galaxy s3.

    300mAh larger than stock is hardly an extended battery.

    Lol why? I just think that the extended battery from Verizon is not enough for this power user here...

    Those kind of batteries are tricky business. Sometimes they work great, and others times they royally mess up the phone.

    If it's going to look like it's pregnant, it's okay, since my DROID X looks pregnant too with its 3500 battery. :)

    Well the issue is the quality of those batteries, they are pure junk. Most times they drain just as fast as the stock standard battery.

    I have the oem extended battery and it is pretty impressive. Id say i get about 30% more juice out of it over the standard bat, which is a significant gain.

    I must agree with bionic_racer. I bought one of those cheap batteries with a wall charger. The charger was good, but the battery sucked. It gave me less than 3 hours of STAND BY. Buy an oem extended from the phone manufacturer. It's worth the extra few dollars.

    I have been pleased with the oem extended battery. It doesn't make the phone too bulky and adds signficant charge time.
