    I was just wondering, Those of you coming from OG droids, or some of the newer droids,

    how is it adding up as far as speed, battery life, and essentials go?

    Do you still have to turn off certain things to preserve battery power? IE: Live wallpapers, 3D Stuff, etc?

    Let us all know...

    Upgrader from OG Droid. Fast - perhaps not the absolute top of the charts, but very fast. Battery life - don't know yet - it took 4.5 hours to charge the battery, which seems longer than what it took on my OG, but then it's a higher capacity battery. Essentials? Blockbuster, Citrix, and a host of VCAST apps you'll never use? Check.

    Will check back in when I know more about the battery...

    Got my new Bionic this morning, and got it set up to my likings for the most part. Unfortunately I only got to play with it for about an hour cuz I still gotta pack and load stuff for the move me and the wife, and kids are making. Battery wise its lasted 7 hours with the original charge from the box ( on 3g only though) and a couple calls and textile sprinkled with some light browsing. So far I am pleased.

    Got it... coming from the Droid3 ... it is way faster ... but i dont have any apps installed yet.. doesn't feel as rock hard as the og or the 3 .. light and slim.. feels sturdy enough i guess ... the lap dock is solid and sexy... and it charges the phone... cool

    500mb of free ram all the time with dual core and 4G is crazy... i cant even explain...
    We'll see after a couple days of use how it stands up...

    I'll check back ...

    Oops... I gadda change my signature .. ahhh whatever
