    The Bionic was released two years ago today! I got mine on release day. Remember all the hype? And all the early network problems with data drops? Seems so long ago. I still have mine. It's awesome now. And with a $50 lapdock it's versatile as hell. Anyone else out there still hanging on?

    Still happy with mine, and I bought a backup Bionic on eBay. I'm not going to give up my Lapdock and car dock.

    Mine died on vacation, but I still have it. Can't seem to stomach throwing it away. =-/

    I got one 4 days after the release date. I was so excited to get a dual core phone! What I remember most was the insane troll invasion that happened here over the next 30 - 45 days. Man that was nuts!

    Mine was pretty much perfect as well. I really miss being able to see the display so well in the sun!

    My sentiments precisely, however according to reviewers the LGG2 has great visibility in the sunlight due to its brightness set at 450nit, or 150nit brighter than the GS4.

    I got mine on the 12th, 3 days after the release. While I enjoyed having it, I'll be letting it go in 14th.

    I bought mine on release day as well. It stopped working a little over a year from that day. Bought an asurion bionic for $100. But, shortly after that found a maxx on Craig's. My son still uses the bionic for his games. Mainly minecraft. ;)

    As a birthday present to my Bionic, I gave it an FDR yesterday. It is now happy as a clam.

    Yes, I resisted doing a FDR for about 18 months, despite multiple OS updates. Finally did one about 6 months ago. Don't know why I waited so long!

    I got mine on release day. Wasn't planning on it. My X bricked the night before for no reason. The data drops were horrible. After gingerbread the phone lagged horrible. I hated it....got the Note 2 and haven't looked back. Overall, the Bionic was a disappointment for me. Mine sits in a drawer as a backup.

    Bought mine on release day and its still running strong. Stock and rooted and i clear cache and dalvic about every 3 months and do an FDR about every six and its still just as snappy as day one.

    I stuck with it... ended up getting a Nexus 7 tablet last year to fulfill all my rooting and romming addictions so my phone wasn't my only android device anymore... this thing has really stood up over the years I must say... I have the side-leg cell phone pocket on all my pants (never buy a pair without one) and that pocket has been the reason why my Bionic remains perfect... I mean absolutely spotless without a scratch... I had my lapdock die on me right at the end of warranty and couldn't be repaired so they sent me a brand new one last September 11th... so it's in tip top shape also... I've got two extended batteries that I swap on weekends and they both give me awesome screen time and I still use my HD media dock with remote control all the time... I remember all the problems we had in the beginning but overall this phone has been very reliable (once I stopped taking it so seriously as a hacker device, that helped a lot)

    I've relly been eyeballing the galaxy note 3 as my next toy but i've become pretty attached to this damn thing... i'll miss bringing my lapdock along and seeing the looks on peoples faces when I snap in the phone and pop out the bluetooth mouse and beats pill for a full Dunkin Donuts - table top media session... life goes on I guess
