    got the phone. its deff a change from my bionic. upgraded the radios but signal still sucks. i live in a fringe area so tbe samsung radios are not so hot for me. the bionic got ALOT better signal. batterlife is pretty rough too. gonna flash franco's kernal and see if that helps battery life

    Yeah the radios are pretty weak, and it'll show since you're in a fringe area. Battery life can be greatly improved by ROM and different kernel. Hope you can live with the signal though

    Whenever you get frustrated with the radio/batteries, just look at a pretty picture on the screen. That should at least provide some temporary relief. ;)

    its still better than my bionic was before the last update radio wise. the battery however is not even close. i use my phone for music at the gym also and had to switch back to my ipod. that screen is very nice though and the camera is a huge improvement. i figure it cant do anything but get better with time

    thats strange, jsut tried do got to cwm recovery and got the red triange. im rooted and recovery is installed

    reflashed it and it went.

    Screen brightness is the biggest battery killer, just fyi.
