    My HTC ThunderBolt screen shattered yesterday. I have an up grade I can use. So I decided to go use it to get a Bionic. Any info from the people who use it everyday let me know what you think of it

    I love mine .. but I'm sure you can tell by the other threads, other phones are coming out too :) It's a choice only you can make. Want a great phone now, or wait till next week and see what the Samsung officially is?

    I don't feel like waiting, but like with the insurance claim for my TB. I'm getting it for $250 OTD I have a good friend that works at Verizon. So I figure that's a good deal right?

    Well its cheaper than $299 but Costco has it cheaper if you can find one... I paid $260 at vzw store since costco was sold out. Either way I like it a lot.

    I'm not a member at Costco. And $250 for the phone, screen protector, and car charger. So I can't *****. I think I'm also goin to go with a case or otter box due to me having bad hands lol

    For me, there's nothing on the market now that is even close to the Bionic. Rock-solid build, excellent performance, super stable, and thoughtful usability.

    It simply is a joy to use, very fast, couldn't have asked for anything better in my opinion. Extremely happy--and just waiting for my Costco goodies to arrive in the mail now.

    The Bionic is an awesome phone! I've had great luck and great battery life with mine. (I didnt want to wait any more either!)

    I love my bionic. It feels substantial in my hands, that being said don't expect a perfect, flawless phone. Android itself will have strange glitches and bugs especially with a flagship device. Give Moto and google some time and they will iron out the kinks then you'll have a kick a$$ phone.

    And with that being said, watch the news section shortly about Google launching ICS sooner than most expect :D

    You can get the Bionic for $149 now, I wouldn't get a Bionic right now. You're literally 10 days from seeing the Vigor in stores and 3 weeks from seeing the Galaxy Nexus.

    What he said. It all depends on what you want. Please bear in mind that there are new phones coming out that may be better, but if you waited for the best phone it may take a while.

    That being said I came from an unrooted OG Droid so this is really great....for me. Of course if I was going by what I need vs what I want I'd still have my Moto e815. :blink:

    Exactly. If I wait for the Nexus who knows what everyone will be talking about that will be coming soon. If I want to wait for the newest phone out I'll just be waiting forever..

    If your going to wait for the latest and greatest phone, you'll be waiting a long time. The bionic is an awesome phone that will be able to hold its own against pretty much anything for years to come.

    I herd that Prime wont be out for awhile like in 2012.

    And as for rooting it I'm not sure yet. If I do it will be for the free tethering, deblot , and better setting for better battery life.

    So anyway I'm very happy with the Bionic. Way better support then the HTC Thunderbolt. So how many hours are people getting on this phone and factory battery no root.
