- Hi all,
I'm a new driod owner,just got the bionic. Love it so far. But I have some questions I'm hoping someone could answer.
Does rooting the phone void the warrentry?
what are the pros and cons of rooting?
any problem with deleting some of the useless app that are preloaded on the driod?
What are the best ways for extending the battery life? I usually been turning off wireless and BT and GPS when not needed, bit didn't know if there were any other tricks out there.
Please let me know if you have any other suggestions for anything else regarding the driod.
thanks all!10-06-2011 10:31 AM

I don't know how successful you would be at finding a non-Motorola battery with a cover that fits for under $30 anywhere else. Let alone one from a reputable seller.10-06-2011 12:19 PM
- IIRC, they said the extended battery was going to be on sale for 1 month after the release (don't know if that is really true). If that is, then the poster should probably buy the extended battery today or tomorrow before the time is up.

- I bought an additional standard Motorola Bionic battery from Amazon to carry around with me. I did this with my OG Droid as well. I don't like the additional weight of the extended battery. When the yellow bar starts to show on the battery meter I switch out. I've had my Bionic now since it was introduced and my battery is now getting close a full day before I come close to putting it on the charger. It really depends on how much you use it and how you use it. I do turn off 4G when I feel I don't need it ( like when the phone is sitting on my desk at work unused all day).10-06-2011 12:52 PM

- I would check out the Rooting forum for stuff about that. But yeah, it voids the warranty, but if you're smart they won't catch you. It's hard to tell if you did anything if you have a problem and unroot it before you walk in and try to fix it.
As for battery life, I have a task manager (which you really shouldn't use and I rarely do), Juice Defender is helpful as it turns off my data usage when the screen is off, and I also have an LTE switch (well it's a shortcut) that I use sometimes to turn off 4G when I'm not using it.10-06-2011 08:00 PM
