Currently I run a Motorola Bionic (stock ROM-unrooted) using Verizon as my carrier, I have an opportunity to pick up a rooted/ROM'd (CM10) Galaxy Nexus for less than $100 with all the original equipment and a spare extended life battery. (Verizon is the carrier also)

I know it isn't the latest nor greatest but how much of a step up from the Bionic is it?? Anything I need to check out specifically as a possible problem indicator?

I have already asked if it was overclocked and it appears well maintained.

Thoughts???

Thank You.

what kind of moto bionic is it? there are 3 models
edit: I must say under 100$ is a good deal (even better that it has all of the original equipment)

In my opinion, GNex is by no means a bad phone, but if you're not a ROM maniac, choosing it today is somewhat pointless, especially when compared to your Bionic (Bionic uses OMAP4430 while GNex uses OMAP4460, not much of a difference).
Why not the Verizon Moto G anyway? Also $100, not much better specs, but longer supported (support for GNex is already discontinued)

Thanks Andy, I'm on a grandfathered unlimited plan and unfortunately also poor but looking for an inexpensive phone to replace my Bionic. I can't afford the latest & greatest at retail prices and can't afford to lose my unlimited plan (10-20GB per month).

Guess I'm really just looking for something different as I've ran the Bionic for almost 3 years.

Oops, I forgot MotoG is $100 only when a new contract is applied... If you're just looking for a fresh experience, GNex is a nice choice, especially with all accessories intact. Gotta flash all the ROMs out there!
