    I've had the Fascinate for just over a day. I must say that I'm already lovin' this phone.

    I came over from the Blackberry Bold which I had for 3 weeks. The battery started draining so quickly that it couldn't keep a charge for more than 4 or 5 hours. This was after a terrible experience with the BB Storm a while back. I regret to say that BB lost a customer on Friday.

    I also tried the Droid X several weeks ago. Great phone, but it just wasn't for me. It was too big, plus the screen colors were a bit dull.

    Anyway, back to the Fascinate.....

    *The size is just right. (overall size and screen dimensions)
    *I really like the fact that it has a built-in task manager.
    *The camera is great
    *Bing doesn't bother me, because Google maps, nav, and voice search are available
    *Of course, the screen is awesome.

    The only "negative" thing I can say is the GPS takes a little long to get a lock. But, waiting a few extra seconds is fine by me.

    Not that this should matter in your selection of any electronic device, but I was really surprised that the user review score on CNET was so low. (3 out of 5) Of course, people were rating it 1-star just because of Bing.

    Since I just got this phone, I have a lot of customizing and app loading to do. So before I go, Thanks to all on this site that reviewed and commented on the phone!

    Install launcher pro it will make your phone faster. The fascinate is the best phone Verizon has now IMO.
