Motorola Droid Bionic

 

The Droid Bionic is a superfast Android phone that combines dual-core power with Verizon's sizzling 4G LTE network.

The Droid Bionic is definitely the fastest 4G LTE phone yet, and it's our new top smartphone pick for Verizon Wireless. The $299 price is steep, but you get dual-core power and blazing data speeds, plus a bevy of useful apps. We also like the qHD...

First dual-core 4G LTE phone ; Motorola's widgets rock ; 32GB storage out of the box ; Large 4.3-inch screen ; Blazing fast Verizon 4G LTE

Short battery life due to 4G ; Poor screen quality ; Camera does not impress ; Bland NinjaBlur user interface ; Poorly placed power, volume buttons

If you're looking for a 4G LTE phone that isn't already outdated, the Droid Bionic is the phone for you.

Droid Bionic Review: A Shape-Shifter With Some Baggage

 

Moto's premise is simple: Our phones are increasingly becoming more powerful, useful and versatile in our everyday lives. Why not allow them to adapt -- or transform, if you will -- to what we need them to be in different situations?

Power, speed and connectivity options are damn near unrivaled in the mobile space. Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread is current, and well-skinned. HDMI, expandable microSD, DLNA, oh my

Unless you’re a baller, dropping this much coin on the Bionic and its accessories might leave you eating ramen noodles for a month. Battery life suuuuuucks. Peripherals don't live up to their potential

Motorola Droid Bionic - A Quick Preview

DROID BIONIC Review

 

Smartphone users are a demanding lot. Give them the latest version of Android, big displays and 4G LTE connectivity, and they ask for a dual-core processor as well. Until now it's been too much to ask of Verizon, but all that changed with the arrival...

Meanwhile, there are faster phones on the horizon. Samsung’s freshly-announced Galaxy S II variants for the US market promise faster processors, while Verizon likely has it’s own fresh superphones just around the corner too. Nonetheless, if you want...

Vibrant screen ; Good performance ; LTE

Still a bit chunky ; Expensive ; A little late to the party

Motorola's Droid Bionic is the first LTE device with a dual-core processor. It's a great phone, but not quite top-shelf material.

Motorola Droid Bionic: Full-Featured, Fast, and Expensive

 

It feels as if we've waited an eternity (well, about nine months) for the Motorola Droid Bionic (s superspeedy LTE network makes for one fast phone. But the Bionic falls short in its display and call quality, making that high price tag seem a bit...

Dual-core and Verizon 4G is a speedy combination ; Assortment of entertainment and business features ; HD 1080p video capture ; Lots of compatible accessories

Pricey ; Call quality is uneven ; Display disappoints

The long-awaited Droid Bionic is blazing fast and has a slew of great entertainment and business features, but the high price might make it a hard sell.

Battery life is lacking ; Software bugs can cause problems ; Pricey
