After a week of using the Droid Bionic by Motorola I figured I should give you my final thoughts. If you remember about 5 days ago for my initial review HERE, I thought the Bionic was a great device. I’m still feeling the same way. I think the Bionic may be the top of the line 4G device available right now from Verizon. The dual core processor has the most power and the best battery life. With moderate use I continued to get 12 hours out of a charge. Light us I managed 16 hours one day. (These were both mixed use 4G/3G/Wi-Fi) On days I took lots of pictures my battery life did drop by several hours.
The screen was impressive. The screen is a qHD screen and is probably 2nd only to the Droid Charge. Photos were clean and crisp and video’s were easy to watch.
The Bionic runs well on Android 2.3.4. While putting it through its paces I was unable to get the phone to freeze or lock up. All the apps that I used ran great with no force closes.
Of the 16GB of internal storage I was kind of disappointed by the fact that I could only use half of that for my videos’, music, and other items. The rest is saved for apps on other things that Motorola felt important to have dedicated space for.
The Bionic is a very thin phone, and thanks to the dual core processor, it can stay that way. There is no need for an extended battery.
All in all the Motorola Droid Bionic is a great device. As I said before I was not a fan of Motorola phones due to the Q9M Windows Smart Phone. Motorola has redeemed themselves with this phone. The Android operating system is easy and intuitive to use and the Bionics’ touch screen is very responsive to use.
I would recommend this phone to anyone wanting to get into a 4G smart phone right now. Even after a week of use I prefer the Bionic over my Thunderbolt due to battery life and screen clarity. The only thing missing for me on the Bionic is the HTC Kick Stand. Other than that I give the Bionic 4 out of 5 stars due to ease of use, battery life, and screen clarity.
The Motorola Droid Bionic is available right now from Verizon Wireless and Verizon Wireless.com for 299.99 on a new 2 year agreement.
