Hey guys Verizon needs to replace my Thunderbolt and after so many replacements they offered me a bionic. Would it be a good choice over my Bolt? We have S-off and Unlocked bootloader.

Pros of bionic:
Dual core 1.0ghz
1gb ram
Lots of great devs

Cons:
Stock has blur
Locked bootloader
And it's moto so probably no stock ics for about a year

another PRO for Bionic is killer long battery life since the .901 update, .902 is killer battery life also.

Yeah this one's a no brainer. Get the bionic.

Regarding the above cons:

Hexec workaround was recently posted allowing for custom kernels. This was really the last issue caused by the locked bootloader. In less than a month it will be old news

There are CM9, AOKP, AOSP, and MIUI variants of ICS available now and improving daily. Who needs stock ICS?

My buddy has a tbolt and there's no comparison in the speed, responsiveness and battery life.

#slickmoves fo sho!!!

Well I told her I use the extended battery on my thunderbolt and told her that 4G phones have poor battery life. So she said ok free extended battery.
And now I'm getting $40 from a coworker for the thunderbolts extended battery and the verizon case I had. :thumbup:
