So, after debating on it for a few more days I did cave in and get the Droid Bionic. After having it for about a week now and taking it with me to Austin City Limits I am very satisfied so far. It is definitely fast and does have very good battery life. With 4G off I was able to use my phone for my normal usage from noon to 3AM and manage to still have some battery life when I got home.
That normal usage included pics, emails, lots of texts, facebook, Gator Country posts and there might have been a call or two in there.
Also, having switched over from the original Droid I had some concerns about going to the all digital keyboard however the conversion has been pretty easy. Perhaps the larger size of the phone has made it easier to type on the touch screen than it was on my previous phone.
All in all worth the purchase in my opinion and the decision was made a bit easier after a good night at Red Rock Casino.
