So, trying to get a handle on your thoughts regarding your Bionic. I've read a fair amount of the threads here and gotten a feel for the phone, but of course, it's not the same as having and using one. My basics - heavy phone user (40-60 calls / day). Heavy email user. ON the road a lot so the phone gets used plenty. My DX typically would run out of battery about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way through the day. Display is always the biggest battery hog, even though I keep screen brightness at it's lowest setting. SO battery life is key, but I am not getting an extended battery - the phone needs to be somewhat sleek as it's always in my pocket, car. I'm debating on whether to get a Bionic or, gasp, the iPhone 5. I had an OG Droid which I rooted, and now the Droid X which is not rooted (because I honestly don't have a lot of time to spend loading every new ROM that comes along). I do appreciate the large screen of the DX since I'm always reading / composing emails, using the map, the browser, etc. I've really enjoyed the android forum, but my DX really has dissolved into a swirling puddle of absolute crap - stock email program stopped retrieving then sending emails. Running Exchange now and that's really slow, takes 20-25 seconds pressing send until the email screen goes away. Phone gets very slow, locks up at times, and other issues (like dialing a number from the recent phone calls list and having it dial a number that's 8 away in the list!). And on. I remember my OG Droid starting to exhibit similar symptoms before I rooted it (and even some of the ROMS doing the same) and even the same all the way back to my Droid Eris. Is this an issue with the Android platform? Does it slow down over time like a windows computer? That drives me crazy. I haven't rooted a phone in over a year, but I'm sure it's easier now than ever back when the OG Droid was first rooted) so I'm not opposed to rooting again if it means better performance, as long as I don't lose Microsoft Exchange capabiity. How is the battery life? I read it's possible to disable 4G to conserve battery. How is the screen? Does it smudge less than the Droid X (also drives me crazy). How is the call quality? I read that the volume of the call is pretty low...is it lower than a DX? That would be a deal breaker. Is the vibration in silent mode any stronger? It was useless in the OG Droid and DX. I know there will be few iPhone fans here, but looking forward to being talked into (or out of!) a Bionic!
