    I started with the og droid, then went to a droid x. Both of those phones were good. But, I bought my bionic on launch day and it is just spectacular. All the complaining about the screen amazes me. It's the most viewable screen in sunlight that I have had by far and the phone just flat flys. 4g speeds too, I have had a best of 38700 down and 14000 up. That rocks. It is so fluid I just can't imagine why I will care if a faster phone comes out later. For my use this thing kicks butt for sure.

    I love mine too by far the best phone i've ever owned. I feel no need to ROM, de-blur, change launcher or anything. Root and i'm good until 5g comes out lol

    Same here - some bugs I'd like to see worked out but it's terrific. Love the stock launcher. And this forum is terrific, have found two apps I never knew about that work perfectly on the Bionic.

    I agree with SSHGuru... There are a few bugs I'd like to have fixed but all in all, I'm totally satisfied. Not sure if others feel this way, but with its larger size, it's almost like a small tablet/phone combo... Heck, it's like a computer with a "phone" built in... lol!

    I feel good knowing I'll have this phone for the next two years. I fell in love with my OG Droid and I feel like I'm going to get more of the same great reliability. My Bionic has been rock solid so far.

    Love mine to. I know better phones are coming, but the bionic will still hang with them imho. Should keep me happy for a while. :reddroid:

    This is by far the best phone I have owned so far. Every phone will have pros and cons. I am working on a short review of the phone. The only huge complaint I have is battery life but I feel moto will release a fix for better battery life in the future. It is 4G so I cannot complain to much considering the speeds I get. I am not sure why some do not like the screen but I personally love it. Once I set the brightness to my desire I was happy. The screen is tough as nails (gorilla scratch free). I dont panic when putting this phone in my pocket so I dont have to wear it around like a fanny pack dancedroid

    Seriously no offense to the people who can't help but complain about this phone, but smartphones are like economics. You have to look at the patterns.

    Please, give me one flagship phone in the past year that didn't have any problems. Be it the screen, camera tinge, battery issues, weak feel, dropped calls, AUDIO SKIPS AND POPS (looking at you X2), or just plain laggy. This is part of the new phone process. Yes, I agree "well I shouldn't have to settle for a $300 phone," but if you hold that mentality, you're going to be disappointed with every $300 phone you get. I imagine this trend will continue for AT LEAST another year. There's always going to be something. Just like video games. There's always bugs and it takes a few patches to really get everything worked out.

    I'm interested to see what happens with the new iphone. This will be an ultimate test for it's true reliability. But, you always have those outliers. So even if it is perfect, still guarantee all others won't be. Trust me, I'm android and PC 100%, but I'm not going to be in denial and go into a furious rage because apple releases a decent product. But, that discussion is for another day....or every day at every minute just somewhere else.

    I really like my BIONIC but there are a few tiny issues with mine. First of all the alarm is so quiet I slept through it. When I set it and adjust the volume setting it's very loud but when the actual alarm goes off it is quiet. Second the led only flashes one time so if I miss the initial blink I have no idea that I have a message. Third no matter what Ringtone I set for a contact it only plays my default tone.

    Hopefully these will get fixed or I will figure a way around them.

    Until there is a fix, there are better alarm apps and for the LED, Light Flow fixed those issues for me!

    Since last summer i have been through so many phones it amazes me. First i had the storm for a year up until last summer, than i bought an og droid from my neighbor for 30$ and loved it for a while, in march i bought an iphone 4 because i got impatient waiting for the thunderbolt but 10 days later the bolt came out so i swapped to that. Then i fried the software in my bolt unplugging it from my computer while it was mounted as a disk drive and they sent me a refurbished one that was absolute garbage and pretty much disfunctional so i complained to verizon and got them to send me a charge which i have no complaints about with the exception of it being a little laggy at times. Now i used my girlfriends upgrade and got myself a bionic and i have to say this phone feels like a keeper. There really isnt anything about it i can complain about. The battery life is great if your in a 3g area. I get about 14-16 hours out of it with 3g on all day with 15 minute pushes on my emails and moderate use. If you turn off data when your not using it the phone can easily get you through a day. Im on 50% right now and ive had the phone off the charger for 1day 2 hours 36mins which is great. Its wayy faster than the charge was and although the screen isnt as nice, it is designed to save battery so no complaints (and to be honest when the brightness is up it looks great anyway). Overall i love this phone like everyone else in this thread. Great job moto imo.

    The Alarm when it goes off is soft but increases to max volume. I like it that way but thought the same as you when I got it.

    Get K-9 Mail - the LED will flash for as long as you didn't check the mail and you can choose colors - it's the best email app for your phone.
