In this review, I will talk about Droid Bionic by Motorola.
When Droid Bionic made its appearance at CES 2011, it seemed big, thick and the overall appear of the phone was bulky however, to our surprise, the design of the phone was nothing like that.
The prototype of the phone released was rather more like Photon 4G. Droid Bionic is a sleek phone, measuring up to 5 inches in length, 2.63 inches in width and in terms of thickness, the phone measures to 0.43 inches.
Even though the phone isn’t tiny, it is definitely slimmer. The phone is marked by attractiveness alongside being slim. The phone has a chin towards the bottom end like the HTC Desire, giving the phone a polished appeal and making the grip of the phone easy. The phone weighs 5.6 ounces but putting into consideration the size of the phone, the weight is okay.
Now in the review, I will discuss the features of the phone.
Droid Bionic has a 4.3’’ qHD display screen. The screen appears to be clear, sharp and bright. The screen boasts a resolution of 960×540 pixels, which is definitely sharp but not really as great as Super AMOLDED display screens.
The phone makes use of Coming Gorilla glass, which puts forward a dual-layer anti-ruminative coating. The screen appears to be slightly washed out if placed under shiny light but otherwise, it is great.
Navigation on Droid Bionic is one of its standout factors. The phone runs on a 1 gigahertz processor, as a result of which, flipping between apps and screens was very smooth. The processor on the phone is T1 rather than Nvidia, which is a bit of a surprise but the overall performance of the phone is great; it is quick, responsive and fast. Multi-tasking on the phone is also a very easy and comfortable task.
Droid Bionic uses a toned down edition of Motoblur as its interface; there are widgets of social networking available, a linked gallery, which does not require a specific log in name or any setup. The phone runs on Android 2.3 and the phone has a 1GB RAM.
Now the review will talk about the phone’s camera.
There is a front-facing VGA camera right above the screen, suitable for video calling purposes. On the back end, there is the main camera of the phone which has a sole LED flash.
The camera is of 8 megapixels. The results appear to be impressive; the quality of the photos was also pretty decent. Pictures appeared to be sharp while the coloring of the pictures was pretty accurate.
Moreover, once switched to video recording mode, the phone is capable of recording videos at 1080p. The phone comes in support of HDMI mirroring mode, enabling you to watch the contents of your phone on the television, and also a DLNA, which enables content streaming with other devices that are DLNA enabled.
Now the review will discuss the other features of the phone.
Droid Bionic is definitely a powerful phone. Running on Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, the browser of the phone comes in complete support for HTML 5 and Adobe flash.
Pages that are Flash-heavy can be accessed without much lagging, which is another pleaser. The phone comes in support of Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth of course. There are other features and apps which includes the Amazon Kindle Application for Android, VideoSurf, Google Talk, Google Maps, Latitude, Books, Slacker and various others.
To finish off my review, I would say that Droid Bionic is definitely a phone you don’t want to miss considering. It is powerful, very solid in terms of performance and a phone that has the potentiality of putting other smartphones in serious jeopardy in the near future.
