    Well I traded my Iphone 4 for a two week old Bionic today, and man this is a fast phone! So far I love it! Only thing i see is you can really kill a battery fast with it but I've had Droids before and this was expected.. I do have one question I read today where they say Task killers can actually hurt phones with the registery on the phone? Im sure this is a big debate but what do most of you think should I use one or not? Like one guy said think about how many Droid phones are out there if the HTC and Motorola thought they needed a app kiler wouldnt the phone come with one by now?

  2. Task killers are a bad idea.

    If you want to prevent tasks from running the recommended approach is to use Titanium Backup Pro on a root-ed Bionic and "freeze" them. See ... Bionic - All Things Root - Android Forums ... for more information.

    (BTW ... you didn't "give up the iPhone4" you "graduated".)

    For battery life issues getting the extended battery can fix that. I use mine constantly and at the end of the day I normally have 35-45% remaining. The built in task manager is also pretty good. I have pretty much everything set to auto-end.

    Just get the extended battery, rather than worrying about killing tasks.

    The extended battery is great. I also try to close out of all apps when moving on to next app by backing out of them...this also really seemed to help battery life. I'm usually good for 12+ hours (more if not in 4g area)

    Bought the extended battery Saturday , much better!! Thing I liked the most didn't really add much size to phone... now if I could just find some better cases then the only one Verizon sold..

    Most likely not (positively):). Get the Motorola extended battery. It is worth the extra as some of the aftermarket batteries cause problems and do not report levels properly. The shell/holster case from Verizon for the bionic extended battery works well.
