joey301's review of the Motorola Droid Bionic

original version, submitted Sep 12, 2011, 10:02 AM:

I really like my Bionic

I am coming off of the original Droid. I have had the Bionic now since the day they came out, so only 3 or 4 days. So far, I have not had any problems with it and I am hoping that continues. I think the screen display is fine. I like the additional memory that I have compared to the Droid so I don't have to worry if I have room for apps. And, of course, I like the speed. I like that its a large phone, it makes reading email a lot easier than it was on the Droid. My battery seems to last a full day with moderate usage, I turn off features I am not using.

Sometimes, I think I would be better off with a 4G tablet, and go back to a simple phone, but that is not the path I took with my latest Verizon contract. I have to get use to the multiple home screens, but so far, I have plenty of space on them, and I like to keep the center one free of clutter anyway so that I can see my background picture. I think its a little difficult getting the icons on the screen of my choice, they tend to jump around for me a bit.

I do not use this phone for work, so I don't require any of those features.

As always, I think data prices are too high.

Pros-
Large Screen
Fast
Lots of memory
Easy to Customize with lots of options

Cons-
I don't like the keyboard, I think its harder to type as accurately as i could on the Droid
Verizon said I could void my warranty if I scratch the screen, so I had to use a cover...I hate those things.

Worst phone ever

I ended up hating this phone. It would never connect to data. Verizon's response to my complaints was terrible. I ended up swapping it 2 times but each replacement was just as bad. On the final swap they gave me the Charge,
