    The Bionic is a joke of a phone…I’m sorry but I have not seen a product that was so poorly implemented to the public before.

      Do you actually have one? I love mine.

        My fiance had one…it is terrible. Constant data drops, poor battery life, almost a non-existent dev community. I had Verizon exchange it for a Rezound.

    The Bionic may have had some quirks when it first launched but the last few updates have all but straightened out the issues it once had. My brother has one and it is a great phone. The dev support isn’t too shabby either. I think the size of the Bionic is it’s best asset. I own the Rezound and the size of the Rezound is what drew me to it and all it’s great specs.

    The file download has been blocked because of too much traffic going through the phandroid account. :(

    The manual update worked great for me this evening. It would show “download unsuccessful” if I tried to download directly but I signed up for Dropbox and used the app. Thanks, worked perfect!
