    i'm a tech geek. So in one word.. no. But it shall suffice. I waited a long time for it... and shall suffer longer with it...lol. But will I splurge on the next great device? Yes.

    I'm a big time tech geek and I have no quarrels with it thus far.
    Then again I knew going into it that no device is a magic elixir right out of the box. ALL devices like this need patches.. and the Bionic will get a good one in a few weeks to smooth out all the minor annoyances.

    We have different tastes. I need mine to be headache free... or close to it. Nothing ever will be but we can wish can't we? And yes.. speeding wheels you are correct. But given the time they pulled it from the market to perfect it... it should have been less annoying. Wouldn't you think. My OG had less issues on release than this unfortunately. But alas.. it was not fast enough. I am the type of guy who buys a brand new STI and if the interior makes just a hint of noise when driving off the lot. Back it goes for another one. Spoiled? Yes,....lol. I am a tech brat then..haha.

    The OG had TONS more issues than the Bionic has.
    They had to push out an emergency patch 4 weeks after release because of all the problems.
    The 2.0.1 patch fixed a myriad of issues that most of us were dealing with when that one was first released.

    Bad is being charged for data when not getting data half of the time. Sometimes airplane toggle and battery pull won't bring back 3g/4glte for me... in the exact same spot where my og catches fine. OTA will fix it. I know. But until then verizon should reimburse me... and all of the others... half of a month's worth of charges. This is something that should not bother me... but it does. :(

    I'm something of a geek - I'm happy with it. I've been fortunate and haven't had many problems with it. A few little things here and there, but nothing major.

    Get an iphone? Seriously.. those things a near bulletproof.

    Every Android device Ive had has experienced some kind of bugs here and there.. Heck, they're still releases bugfix updates for the Droid X and that thing has been out forever.

    If you're the kind of person who's OCD about build quality and attention to detail, it's hard to beat Apple Products.

    Only thing mine suffered from was camera auto focus. But maybe I was lucky. The Ota cured that. If there was more... I did not encounter any since day one. Oh I take that back. My volume rocker got stuck down. And I did get a new one the next day.

    Very true Crazed. I am ocd unfortunately. Everyone in my family has one. My fiance swears by hers. But I can't support the business practice of Apple. A whole other story in itself..lol.

    So to eat my words everyone... I might be happy after the Nov OTA. But hate the fact that I still can't go on fb 50% of the time.. and is still being charged for it :(. Too bad my m17 x can't fit in my pocket..lol.

    Totally happy with my phone. Looking forward to having this for a while. Trying to get my wife to get one, she has an og and is fighting me. I'll will in the end though.

    Phone has been great for me. I've had no bugs, freezes, reboots, or anything. The phone is extremely fast, the display is great even though some complain, it does have its advantages especially with outside viewing. It would be hard to find a phone that offers functionality that this phone doesn't offer, and it does everything well. As for the battery, obviously under heavy use one can expect the battery to not last very long. Right now I'm rooted and have frozen a few apps and with wifi/4g turned off my phone dropped less than 5% in 8 hours with no use, and it easily last all day with moderate use only turning on the data when i need it. my uptime today was 20 hours, and i had 40% left. Some will say you shouldn't have to micro manage the battery which i agree with but this is the same on every android device out there IMO. I'm making do, a small sacrifice for a powerful phone.

    Love mine. Just got it yesterday. After reading these forums I was not expecting much for battery life. So far seems about the same as my rooted droid 1.

    This phone is super fast and smooth. I haven't even been in a 4G area yet.

    Love it.

    got mine on release day and loving it ever since. I rooted it immediately, and am running DroidTh3ory's "ReBlurred" rom, that has the Atrix camera and fixed the bugs associated with the release of the Bionic. I really could not ask for a better phone :)

    Got mine on Day 1. Love it.
    Zero problems. So fast, everything responds instantly. Amazing screen.
    It's a keeper for me.
