    Hey all,

    I currently have a thunderbolt and I am getting kinda tired of it. I want to switch phones but I do not want to use my upgrade so I was thinking about buying a Bionic from an online retailer. Is it still worth it to do so? Is the phone still pretty fast for most of you? How is the battery life with and without the extended battery? Can the phone last normal wear and tear? I love my thunderbolt but I find that I am getting old and tired of it and it is slowing down.

    Thanks everyone

    It is a good phone and will soon get ICS which will make it better. The battery life should be much better than the Thunderbolt. I always use the extended battery because it fits in all the docks.
    You can go to Swappa (Android) Buy and sell gently used Android devices and find some real bargains.

    I would also say go for it. It's pretty zippy even on Gingerbread and mine had survived a fall to a textured metal floor from about 5-6 feet. Put a dent in the metal top cover of the phone (I thought it was hard plastic, but guess not because it didn't chip), but otherwise still perfect. I would recommend an extended battery since they are cheap if you don't mind the added bulk, but mine goes about 3 hours with decent use and some gaming.

    Oh, and it has an SLCD screen, not Super AMOLED. I'd consider it far superior since it doesn't have the ugly green tint issue, like on many newer phones. That's just a personal opinion though.
