    or does anyone else think the Droid Bionic is the biggest POS they ever bought for a phone?

    I actually like my Bionic a lot. I may be the weirdo here, but I was thankful it had a locked boot loader. I think every Android newby should have a locked boot loader. As a result I was able to safely learn what I know now, with the risk of a hard brick. Now that Ive graduated to an unlocked boot loader I know what to do to not brick my phone. Also, I think it got a bad deal because they released the Razr right on its heels.

    Maybe because mine is still stock? Mine is so laggy ever since going to ICS and now JellyBean. ICS actually got better after awhile but now I think I am back to the lag again. Been on JB for about a month now (?) and did a factory reset and cleared cache. Just sooooooo slow to do stuff like read a text message or make a call, get the keyboard to come up. etc.

    Mine's going strong. Once the data drop issues got solved it's been flawless. I did just buy a new battery. After 20 months the original battery was only good for half a day. But a $9.99 OEM battery from Amazon has solved that problem.

    Agreed, the lag on ICS and Jelly Bean is unbearable. Did factory reset. Got bad agin. Verizon is slow on getting HTC ONE, so I am stuck for awhile. I think Motorola did a bad job on the JB and ICS ports

    I still love my bionic. It is better than ever on jb. Just the fact that they are still developing ROMs and such for the bionic tells me that I'm not the only one that still loves it. Long live bionic.
