If the DROID Bionic Ends Up Being Verizon’s Version of the Motorola Photon 4G, Will You Be Disappointed?

All talk around these parts has been about the DROID Bionic lately, since well, it was announced almost 8 months ago and was supposed to be the device to change the Verizon world.  Since Motorola and Verizon can’t seem to get it to work properly with 4G LTE though, companies like Sprint have swept in to release a phone that many are thinking is exactly what we’ll see from the Bionic, the Photon 4G.  I’m just wondering if we’ll all be disappointed by the time it gets here if indeed it does end up being nothing but a prettier version of Sprint’s beastly 4G phone?  

We’ve been handed the the Photon 4G training guide (in the gallery below) by our friends at Motorola and I’ve got to tell you, that I don’t see the Bionic ending up any different except in the looks, processor and price departments.  We are fully expecting the Bionic to run on an OMAP4 dual-core processor, retail for somewhere around $299 on-contract, and have a much more refined look than this jagged-edged thing that’s headed to Sprint.

But the other specs all appear to matchup:  8MP camera, front VGA camera (2MP has been rumored, but would surprise us), 4.3″ screen (4.5″ rumored, but unlikely), 1GB RAM, 4G, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), HDMI-out, webtop app and accessories, and the newest version of Blur that can be found on the DROID3.

Or is it possible that Verizon and Motorola have a surprise up their sleeves?  It’s pretty obvious that the Photon 4G has a super impressive set of specs, but the Bionic has been lifted to this status that would be hard for any device to live up to.  Are you OK with the Bionic being Verizon’s Photon or do you want more?  I’d love a surprise to be packed in like a 4.5″ screen that’s not a PenTile matrix or upgraded front shooter, just not sure either are happening.

What do you guys think?

*Note – the spec list below says 720p for the Photon, but that’s clearly wrong.

    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted

    Absolutely I would be disappointed and I wouldn’t understand why anyone wouldn’t be.. After all the delays afters all the design changes after this bull crap and it’s basically we get the hand me down of what another carrier has already has and we have to pay more for it??? Are you really asking a silly question like that? Not to mention Verizon customers have not gotten any other choices in the department of 4g and Dual Core you’ve had to either get one or the other because of the Bionic was and still is supposed to be the first Dual Core Flagship device so all the people who wanted to upgrade to something that powerful but couldn’t. And then when it’s finally released we get exactly the same phone as the other carrier has had now.

     Why wouldn’t people be disappointed that’s BS? I’ll wait for something else or completely jump carriers. Every other carrier has had at least something in the form of DC and 4g but not VZW. We’ve had to wait or go ahead and get into a 2 year agreement with one or the either because of the Bionic. I will be rather pissed if this is exactly what we are being given. Plus after all these delays SOMETHING has to be wrong with it! So we may very well be not only getting the Photon/Targa/Bionic/Atrix but a rather buggy one at that and no kickstand at that WTF??? All this time and couldn’t find the time to add one? Motorola sucks big floppy donkey D*CK with their locked bootloaders and delaying BS. It should have more ram,higher resolution, a faster processor, better cam front and back plus a kickstand unlocked bootloader, a free additional battery,car dock,webtop dock all for 200 bucks after all this shit that VZW and Motorola has done. Who’s with me?? If not here I come Samsung or HTC and I’ll be like MOTO who? I mean after 8 months what’s another couple, but I’m sure VZW when the first quad core phones start coming they’ll make sure that we won’t see one until 2020.

    I hope everyone realized I’m exaggerating for the most part, but I will be extremely disappointed if we are given the same phone after all the hype of it changing the phone world and being something everyone will be jealous of blah blah blah and then they finally reveal the product and say “Tada here’s the NEEEWWW PHOT… I mean ATRI.. OOPS DAMN IT what’s this piece of SH*T phone called again?” ” Oh the Bionic!” Interviewer – “Tell us what set this apart from the Atrix and Photon 4g.” Sanjay replies “The name. No more comments.”

    I think the writing style of DL is becoming more butthurt by the day, the Photon is amazing (on paper) why would you be dissapointed if it came out on Verizon? Oh because your cognitive dissonance is on par with that of Appleites. Just my two.

    Look dont play with me right now Kellex; we have already seen the docs and accessories to the Bionic. So this has to be a long shot! This phone may come to Verizon, but not as the Bionic…… I hope!

    Ditto on the 4.5 inch non pentile good quality HD screen. If the screen is pentile/sucks then I’ll be very disappointed.

    • This is officially the first comment I’ve seen where someone is looking past the Bionic and the GSII……

  • So you don’t want Droid 3 with LTE/1gb ram but you want the SG2 with LTE right???

    Same shit. There’s nothing special about any of these phones. Not yet at least.

  • I never understood the hype behind Galaxy s2…

    Crappy Atrix already benchmarks the same with GB.

    Whooptie fucken dooo. The only improvement is the Camera/video.

  • If you think it’s much faster then you’ll really be disappointed.

  • It will still be better than anything Verizon has so what’s the big deal?

    Go buy yourself an LG revolution instead.

  • I actually kinda dig the ‘jagged-edged’ look…..I think it goes well with the Droid brand image.

  • Legoturte92

    I feel like I’m starting to expect a Windwaker release of the phone. Like when they first showed a trailer of the next Zelda for GCN it was amazing and they ended up doing something completely different, but it still was amazing. I’m starting to expect them releasing something that is no where near what we think the Bionic is and just hoping for a huge spec increase. If it comes true I would love to see a bunch of people stop complaining about the screen or the ffc especially if it’s a huge step up of what we think.

  • jnt

    The Bionic has been delayed so long that hype has built it up to something that it’s not – something tremendously greater than the Atrix or Photon.  It will be *slightly* better, but there won’t be any big surprises.  It will be over-hyped by Verizon marketing b/c 90% of the general public has no idea of anything different, but we’ll all know better b/c we’ve been following this for roughly 8 months.  Maybe it will come with some additional accessory or something, but the phone itself won’t be a huge step up from the Atrix or Photon.  Props to AT&T for getting the Atrix “line” way ahead of everybody else…

    I think I’ve worried myself to death over phone specs now.  I think I’m just going to hang on to my DX until someone comes out with a phone that can go 2 days with battery life on moderate usage.

    • Rob

      Hope your Droid X lasts a very, VERY long time!

    • jnt

      The Inc2 can get pretty darn close… best battery life on any Android phone, out of the box, to date… and I’ve owned a lot. (D1, Dinc, DX, DX2, Tbolt, OptV, Triumph)

  • i wont be mad by the photon 4g i think is the best looking 4g phone out there

  • Most phones i kind of wanted ends up on verizon…. Be nice for sprint to have more hit phones out more . But i would like to try this if its the “” sprint version”” 

  • Well  It’s pretty obvious that the Photon 4G has a super impressive set of specs, but the Bionic has been lifted to this status that would be hard for any device to live up to…Glad to read..I like your blog very much..

  • Shocker

    I’m still rockin’ the X1 because every time there is a talk about a new game changing phone on the horizon, by the time it gets released not only does it not seem like anything special, there’s already a new buzz about some other game changing phone once again just over the horizon. 

    I’m so over the phone game it’s not funny.

    … i would rate a droid 3 over a SGII, because of the build quality

    • droidlvr

      think about this meta, the build quality of a droid 3 , with the tech of a SGII. BIONIC FTW

  • All this time, i though motorola (DX) I’ve owned was sufficient… but after getting Droid Charge (which has compatible or less spec) runs better at everything… especially screen quality…
     
    I’ve returned this DX 4 times for defect, and my friend returned it for 5 times… and I wouldn’t really rely on Motorola’s quality.. quality to start with and the quality to follow upon..
     
    After all, many of my friends agree that we would not buy motorola for a while..

    tHE DROID bIONIC WILL BE MY GIRLFRIEND, YALL JELLY?

  • I’m starting to think that it isn’t gonna live up to the hype. I want it to be the greatest thing since muenster cheese, but im having a feeling its gonna be an upgraded X2 with 4GLTE..  But I would love for it to be some crazy Beast that puts other phones to shame.. Verizon, and we the customers need stellar phone for once, all these other guys have been pushing out good ones. All the hype over the Droid Charge, and look how that turned out…

    Honestly I consider myself a loyal Bionic fan. I REALLY want to pick up the bionic, but if August begins drawing to a close w/o even a release date… I’m switching to sprint and picking up the HTC Evo 3D. 1.2 GHZ dual-core 4G phone with a 4.3″ **3D** screen? Why wait?

    Any phone that moto makes with that garbage pentile screen i will never buy…ill keep my 3g TB with my crappy batt

    I actually like the looks of the Photon….Sprint,ehh? …hmmm

  • snoop5

    ok….. i can see that most people would by a phone for the features, and not for what a phone is for anyway. I buy motorola because it works it has signal majority of the time, call quality is good and the phones last,at least to me they are better, my wife and son have a fascinate a friend has the TB and they all complain constantly. we can all be in the same place and my DX is the only one working, to me thats what a phone is for to talk on.  But maybe its just me. 

  • I have to point out my appreciation for your kind-heartedness in support of men who must have assistance with in this area of interest. Your special commitment to passing the solution across ended up being pretty valuable and has in every case permitted guys like me to arrive at their objectives. Your own valuable help implies this much to me and extremely more to my office colleagues. Many thanks; from each one of us.

    The Motorola Atrix is just a tad behind the supposed super cool Bionic and it’s 8 months old.  WTH has Motorola been doing?  A new processor, yea, but same memory, same docking station, about the same speed.  The Xoom is still a mess.  The Photon will be the same as the Bionic, but if they wait much longer, they will not be the best phone.  Heck you can get the Atrix for $49!  So you get to pay $250 privilege for a tad faster and on Verizon!

    And Samsung should be cleaning up with the Galaxy II, but can’t get it together in the US for wherever reason.

    Sheese…

    • DBK

      Different memory, different OS, different UI, different radio, different form factor, different processor, different kind of docking station, bigger, and faster.

      Well past the Atrix and most other current phones is what I think you meant to say.

      The Photon is essentially a slightly upgraded Atrix, the Bionic is not.

    If the picture of the revised Bionic compared to the Defy can be anything to go by, than after some simple math, its evident the screen size will be 4.3 inches, not 4.5… Just my .02

  • B3dtim3

    Ive used the phone before. It is e OMAP4, and 4.3 inches. The new motoblur isn’t even that bad… the phone is very sexy and I think everyone is going to like it. Also…. because Verizon’s 4G is 4 tines faster… is it even fair to say they’re the same phone even if they appear that way? Not to mention OMAP4 is much faster than Tegra 2…

  • droidlvr

    the anticipation of this phone is keeping me up at night. Is this normal?

    • Your info better be legit you better not be blowin smoke up my ass. Which I think you are

      • droidlvr

        no man this is real talk, why do you think it’s been delayed for so long? also, verizon is counting on the bionic to be the next level in tech, dual core cpu with lte. after the bionic it’s simply faster cpu and lte. this bionic is on the same level as the OG droid. verizon is counting on that.

        • Guest

          way more better than the original droid of maybe a tied lol the droid kicked ass bad though when verizon first got it

    I’ve never understood the hype behind the Bionic in the first place.  It is an Atrix with LTE and OMAP CPU vs Tegra 2. 

    Nice phone (without the inevitable MotoBLUR and crapware from Verizon) but nothing to get overly excited about.

    • Just curios what does it take too get you “excited”?

      • Anonymous

        Something new and different. When it comes to Android phones there are pretty much three categories for me. Excellent/new, Meh, and Crap.  Meh is for the multitude of phones that are competent, don’t do anything new, and just meet what should be standard. Exciting is for something that is new that just game out. The Optimus 2X was new when it first came out because it was the first dual core phone. Same with the Atrix.  The SGS II has the SuperAMOLED screen, is dual core, and flies performance wise, more than any other phone.

        The Bionic just isn’t exciting to me.  Maybe if it does have good battery life with LTE that will change.  Or if they do something truly new.  But if it is just the Atrix or DROID 3 with LTE I am not interested.  Others can be and should, it should be a good phone. Just not anything to be hyped about.

        • DBK

          So unless it can give you a blow job, you couldn’t care less. Now I understand, you’re a phanboy (since you believe in that kind of “magic”). Makes total sense now.

          • Anonymous

            Hey, a blowjob would be nice, but isn’t required.  A phone I’m hyped about has to do something different (at this point different would ironically be a stock, unlocked Android device) or just hit every stat perfectly and excel at everything it does (like the SGS2). If it doesn’t do that, there are plenty of competent phones that are OK, but flawed in someway and don’t warrant excitement. I’m not saying don’t buy them, just don’t hype them and do overblown stories on them. 

            The Bionic IMO is falling into that second category. I don’t see anything to really be excited about here.  if it ends up the way I think it will it will be a good phone, but will have some issues that make it not stack up to something like the Galaxy S 2. 

            On second thought, part of my lukewarm attitude on the Bionic probably stems from my state not having access to LTE which makes it pretty much a non factor in my buying decision.  I can see people being excited for that as long as it hits the other areas well.

    • DBK

      Bionic and Atrix…..two completely different phones. New Blur is amazing and 4G actually works and doesn’t (supposedly) kill the battery. You can go away now.

      • Anonymous

        I’ve used new Blur, it isn’t amazing. It is better than what it was, but not amazing. Still has some screen redraw and some lag issues (although for the most part is quick on the DROID 3), still has superfluous social networking options that duplicate when you install the official app, and is still a useless layer on top of an already good OS (although that is true of all manufacturer skins.  If I had to rank the skins I’d put it at number two, over Sense but below the new Touchwiz.  It beats Sense because it isn’t as heavy and it loses to Touchwiz since Touchwiz has the toggles in notification bar and besides trying to take the iPhone icon style it is very light.

        I don’t know what you’re talking about 4G actually working, does it not work on the DROID Charge or Thunderbolt?  Did I miss this story?  It not killing battery is yet to be seen, all these LTE phones suck when comes to battery life, hopefully the Bionic will be different.

        Overall, stop being such a defensive fanboy.  I didn’t say the phone sucked. I said it wasn’t that exciting.  It is an Atrix with an LTE radio and OMAP vs Tegra 2.  IIRC the Atrix even got the new Blur (may just be a reskin rather than anything else though).  It will still have the same issues, I can pretty much write the review now:

        -Screen sucks but is large and supposedly light on battery (due to being Pentile)
        -Is mostly lag free but still has some inexplicable lag now and then (especially when coming from the camera)
        -Webtop is a cool idea but still laggy and generally sucks
        -LTE is OMGWTF awesome but also kills battery
        -Phone keeps the same DROID aesthetic and Motorola build quality but is fairly thick and heavy
        -Blur is improved but still not great
        -Has metric ton of unremovable bloatware and the bootloader is still locked (Motorola of course promises to unlock it “where carriers allow” which of course translates to “if it happens at all, it isn’t happening on Verizon”

        So like I said, not exciting.

        • DBK

          The new Blur is amazing. Period. Touchwiz sucks and always will. The newer Blur that will be on the Bionic is even better. I’ve have yet to experience any lag and neither have the other D3 owners I know. And if there is lag, it is minutely marginal. All phones will lag somewhat, so it is not an issue.

          Atrix got the current Blur not the new Blur.
          4G = consistent disconnecting/reconnecting and occasional network crashing
          The Tegras don’t work well with the LTE, the OMAP does.
          There is nothing wrong with Pentile, especially the newer one that the Bionic will sport. Haters gonna hate.
          The new webtop is improved and performs the way it should.
          The Bionic is thinner than most, if not all, Moto phones. It’s neither thick nor heavy. The D3 is proof of that.
          Blur is vastly improved and performs and looks similar to Honeycomb. It is great.
          Bootloaders should be (according to them) unlocked by end of the year. It is not an issue since you can root and ROM.
          Agreed about bloat, but can be removed through rooting. Thus not an issue.

          Overall, stop being such an idiotic, close-minded hater. And like I said, The Atrix and the Bionic are very different phones. And the Bionic is indeed exciting. You can go and play in traffic now.

          • Anonymous

            New Blur is OK, period. Touchwiz sucks, but is light and doesn’t get in the way, the best I can hope for in a skin.  There is minimal lag, but lag and homescreen redraw none the less.  Look through threads for the D3 and you’ll see it.  Not to mention random reboot issues.

            Didn’t know that about the Atrix, heard it got a new color scheme and all that, but wasn’t sure what version of the skin it has.

            Do we have any proof of Tegras and LTE not playing nice?  I’ve heard some rumor of that and it would explain the delay in the Xoom getting LTE, but AFAIK there haven’t been any Tegra LTE devices.  The Galaxy Tab will probably be the first one.

            Pentile is a compromise. Gets a higher resolution and supposedly lower battery draw at the expense of being not as good visually.  I have no problem with it and I’ve used both the Droid X2 and the DROID 3.  It is at the bottom of the pile quality wise, but is still perfectly serviceable.

            Nice to see you know the future and can tell how good the webtop is, especially since the only webtop enabled phone out right now is a cool gimmick at best.  Do you work for Motorola or Verizon and have some inside track on the Bionic that we don’t?

            I personally have no issue with the size of the DROID 3 or the probable size of the Bionic, I’m just saying that will be a point of contention for some. I’ve personally loved the solid boxy feeling of Motorola’s devices. They just don’t make slim, light products (RAZR not counting)

            I’ll believe the bootloader unlock when I see it. They’ve left themselves plenty of wiggle room.  It is true that a locked bootloader doesn’t make root impossible, it just makes it harder.  For phones that started on Froyo there are some root exploits that are well known and easy to find, but phones that start on Gingerbread have had less luck.  For instance the DROID X is easy to root on Froyo, but if you update to Gingerbread the only way to root is downgrade to Froyo and then install a custom, already rooted Gingerbread ROM. The DROID 3 which started on Gingerbread has been resistent to all known exploits so far, and I’d put money on the DROID X2 being the same way once its Gingerbread update starts rolling out.  With an unlocked bootloader the process of rooting is much easier.

            I’m not closeminded, just not a fanboy of Motorola. They have some serious flaws and have had some disappointing releases as of late.  Hopefully that changes, they have the best build quality in the business.

  • droidlvr

    martelus, the screen is 4.5″ therefore the screen is of higher resolution. you guyas will splooge once u know the specs.

    • Anonymous

      I’ve used the phone next to my DX. It’s 4.3 inches.

  • Martelus

    I guess all I want is a different screen, an OMAP 4460 1.2-1.5 ghz dual core processor. Also a camera with better low light performance and unlocked bootloader (though the new blur isn’t too bad IMO). If bionic really wanted to separate itself from the pack, it would need all that, at least. (Maybe not the screen, but what the hell.)

    In any case its still a cool looking phone that will still perform well even if its a droid3 with lte and ill be happy with it when it comes out. Not gonna lose sleep over it if it never did though.

      I was thinking the same just because moto butchered gingerbread on the droid x and they won’t acknowledge it.  Guaranteed a reboot when walking and playing music.  But every since CM7 (and now MIUI) was released I have none of those moto gingerbread issues.  It’s not perfect but CM7 has been running like a champ and hopefully we will see other roms based on it.  

      But I have deeper problems with the iphone 5. 1. No LTE (rumor)2. Still 3.5 inches (rumor)3. Non replaceable battery4. No SD card or flash support5. Plain old OS from 2007 with no ability to really change it (going from Stock to CM7 to MIUI is night and day difference). 6. Because Steve Jobs and Apple sucks.  

      Moto needs to unlock the bootloader and leave Android stock.

      ROFL!  You’re sick of the Bionic hype?  Really?  …………really?  Because from where I’m standing the iPhone’s hype is about ten times more annoying.

  • can we talk about the galaxy s II now? Just sayin…

      we are on the verge of an amazing phone, that’s why so much Bionic chat.

    Well i tried w8n on the Bionic…couldn’t w8 anymore so I got the thunderbolt & Rooted it & put dat new BAMF 2.3.4 gingerbread Rom on it & clocked it @ 1.805 ghz….quadrant running 3300 plus vzw LTE ITS AMAZING!….Awe almost forgot I had 2 get the bigger battery

    • You know BAMF has a mod on it to fake your quadrant scores because 1.  I never achieved anything above 2100 even on BAMF and 2.  They stated before on one of there rom threads that they modified the ROM so quadrant will always pull a fake high score.

    This phone has eluded so many people for so long. It was the best of the best when they first announced it, and now it seems like other carriers have comparable phones on the market. By the time this makes it out, we’ll all be lusting over phones coming up during the holiday season. It would be naive for any of us to think that there won’t be even better phones on VZW in the coming months besides the Bionic..

  • whats pointless is you commenting in here without anything useful to add to the conversation bro

  • your going to be waiting a long time because there will always be a next super phone

    I have a friend who knows someone who works for Motorola. Evidently the Bionic will have an updated version of Blur, even different from the version on the D3. As Nemacysts has stated, it has a 3d look to it that will make your jaws drop.

    • jaw drops

    • Guest

      dammmmmmm now i am excite it i thought it was going to have the same blur as droid 3 apparently not 🙂 Like i say this fools motorolla can make a perfect phone if they want they make the most difficult thing in the phone, which is built quality great speakers software its nothing for them. IF they make the bionic perfect or the photon they will not sell any dinara phones when it comes out

  • ScottyfromGA

    whoever is running Verizon needs to listen to this…or anyone else that has said this before me, “STOP BRINGING OUT NEW PHONES EVERY 2 DAYS!!”  I get the latest, greatest hunk of phone and then I read an article that puts mine to POS status before I even get to fling my first Angry Bird.  I understand how computers are all obsolete before you buy them off the shelve, and phones probably ride that same ribbon, but come on…..don’t bring out a beast like the Bionic and then topped it 2 minutes later with the Galaxy S 2.  WTF….6 kickass phones a year would be awesome!

    • Kianjudah

      Amen bro. The rate at which new phones, particularly Android phones, are coming is just ridiculous! That just simply cannot be a good thing for Android.  

  • EDGE

    Sick of it.  Sick of Moto making promises and not fulfilling them (Xoom & Bionic).  Sick of Vz and their data BS.  Sick of the industry releasing fake 4G*  that costs the wireless providers less per MB while they charge us more**.

    I want a phone that works when I turn it on.  I don’t want to be told how to use it or how fast I’m allowed to pull data from one site over another.  When I buy it, it’s mine.  No agreements for 2 years.  No locked bootloaders.  No putting crap on my phone that I will never use.  NO spying on me and what I do with my phone.

    Motorola rebadging a phone and calling it great?  Just icing on the cake that is motorola.  I’ll stop buying phones until someone (not moto) delivers a superior alternative to my Droid X.  It has been a great phone but still not reliable.

    *AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon all call it 4G when it’s not!!!  See ITU-R standards for 4G. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4G

    **Gurnani, CIO Verizon (7/20/2011) advised the Verizon employees that they will be able to deliver 4G at a lower cost than any previous technology.

    I have a feeling I’m going to be let down. I am due for an upgrade right now. I want the galaxy s2 right now but that isn’t going to happen so what now? The Bionic? Here is where I stand on the Bionic, as long as blur is on it and can’t be removed out of the box I won’t buy it. At least I could root the sgs2 right now if I got it. I am lost to tell you the truth…I mean what are the og droid guys like me going to do? Can a phone inspire us like the Droid did? If their is a phone that can, show me. Until then I just don’t know what to do..Who knows maybe the Bionic will be better than what I’m thinking?..

    • The Bionic is rumored to be running a newer version of Blur that isn’t on the Photon, called Blur 3D.  Its going to have a similiar look to Honeycomb mixed together with Gingerbread.  I saw some leaked photos a while back thanks to a friend that works for an android blog, he wasn’t allowed to keep them posted since there apparently was only device being tested with that version at the time.  It looks pretty slick so far and I’ve seen what it looks like on the Droid X (the gingerbread update for Blur that is) if Blur went from craptastic Ninjablur to Gingerblur I can’t wait to see the final result of Blur 3D.

      • Anonymous

        You do make a great point that Blur, even though it was once the worst thing Motorola did to their smartphones, but that blur can change and it has changed. I still hold it against moto to this day for putting blur on these android phones but I have not used one in awhile. I think I’m best to not assume I will hate it until I try it…lets all hope the bionic is a true stunner!

          blur on the droid x with gingerbread its not bad it has some minor bugs but still niceee doesnt droid 3 came out with the latest motoblur?

    • Djstar2k2

      i feel u! nuttin remotely vanilla on vrz! dkwas next maybe sprint wilol have something w/ a kb and vanilla that aint low end

  • Now to reply to the article, if its like the Photon, minus the kickstand and ugly design. I think the Bionic will be better.  The design of the Bionic from what I’ve seen is alot nicer and slick looking. it even has a nice fake bronze edge to make it look even more appealing.  I was hoping for a 4.5″ screen though 🙁

    • Guest

      the bionic looks very slick and it has the hump, which it is helpful

  • Just as I thought, the Desktop dock had 3 USB ports for a reason and its going to be used to connect to monitors to use as a computer, instead of relying on a portable laptopdock. pretty slick.  I might actually get the Bionic now  I was waiting for the Galaxy SII but i keep hearing rumors it might not have LTE 🙁

    • droidlvr

      Nemacysts is correct, it has webtop capabilities basically making it like a laptop, oh yea with windows integration as well later on!

    Kind of random but, anybody miss the marketing the OG Droid, Droid X and Droid Incredible had? I just saw some of the commercials on youtube and it made me miss my Droid.

  • The S2 with some LTE love would be the phone for me. An unlocked bootloader, a gorgeous screen, awesome camera (not a fan of Moto’s camera, my DX disappoints me), slim and sexy. 

  • I love the Moto Photon =( I might switch to sprint just for it if the bionic is a let down.

      • or secretly getting it online when it launches on the website before the stores lol  Better than dealing with “would you like to get the screen protector, you can save this much if you buy this and this and this” or  asking personal questions about what you might do with your phone and then use that as an excuse to get some attachments to the sale.  THIS is why online shopping is far superior to going in a store.  Stores are mainly good for returns and getting additional stuff later on, not with the main sale since they pester you to death to get accessories or something else.  I hate that kind of shopping experience.  I’ll get the thing first, try it out and if i like it and NEED the accessories, i’ll be back or better yet come to the store to see what they look like in person and then rub it in there face that I’ll be buying online because they pester the hell out of me.  THERE’s my RANT! lol

    I think we should all go rake our rock gardens until August 3rd and then come back here at that point and see if the Bionic is going to launch the next day or not. If it does, we’ll all have saved ourselves a lot of stress and frustration, and if it doesn’t, we’ll have saved up enough inner peace to grin and bear it. Kellex will gladly do all the suffering for us.

  • RW-1

    This is what one gets when there is no real news out there on either phone ….

    I’m already devastated…

  • YES!

  • Every post I read about the Bionic, I see comments slamming the phone for having Pentile.  I have been following this phone since April, and the ONLY time I’ve heard  on it was when it was Pentile was when Kellex threw the idea out after the DX2 showed up.  I would like to know where these “experts” are getting their info. Motorola hasn’t said anything about it, nor has Verizon, nor has an actual phone showed up except in a blurry picture in June and Accessory pics from Amazon.  

    • Anonymous

      All of Moto’s new high end phones have had the pentile screens, it’s very unlikely that this will be any different. Having said that, the pentile complaining is mostly hyperbole, it’s not nearly as bad as they make it out to be, in fact it’s barely noticeable on the Droid 3 but that also has a smaller screen which affects quality.

  • droidlvr

    I heard that the Bionics screen will have a higher resolution than the droid 3. Kellex, can you confirm that?

    For those who will wait for the SGII….me being one of them:
    I still believe that the SGII will most likely be 3G when (or if) if comes out next month. Samsung DOESN’T NEED TO CHANGE IT TO 4G LTE….They have sold over 3 million already, I’m sure it is not a priority since they can get a “4g” on Sprint – ATT w/out too much trouble compared to LTE for Verizon.

    Gg Motorola

  • At CES, the Bionic was going to be my next phone. Instead, I went with the Thunderbolt. I’m so sick of Moto’s delays, and they REALLY pissed me off with the Xoom debacle. I purchased a Xoom on day one, and STILL no LTE upgrade. Moto has really dropped the ball with LTE, and the investors are not happy. I buy all my phones at full retail, but there’s nothing really compelling about the Bionic at this point. Dual core OMAP…ok, that’s nice, but hardly a game changer (first LTE dual core, yes, but really doesn’t make a huge difference…)

    -Pentile screen
    -Locked bootloader
    -MotoBlur (even the new version is the worst of all the manufacturer skins).

    It’s sad that I’m saying this, because I have long been a Moto fanboy. OG Droid was my first android phone, followed by a Droid 2 and Xoom. Motorola has really disappointed me, and I won’t be giving them my business any time soon. I’ll wait for HTC to release a kickass superphone on VZW.

          Blind much? The new Blur is amazing and easily better than any of the other current skins. Stock is still the way to go, but if a skin is unavoidable, than the new Blur is the way to go.

            what is the skin that google uses many people love the stock. what is the big difference

          • DBK

            People like stock because it runs faster than skinned. And it’s simpler to navigate. It feels more their own. Lots of anti-corporate sentiment. I like stock, but with a custom ROM. Stock on it’s own is not very pleasing to the eyes and and can get dull quick.

      Sorry but Motorola is where it’s at for hardware and build quality and their new blur (MAP) is just as good as touchwiz.  The only thing that makes the GSII stand out is its screen, otherwise the Bionic is as good or better and no, I don’t consider being a couple millimeters thinner to be anything worth mentioning considering these phones are already thinner than your finger.

      • TomHolmes

        If the current version of Blur slapped your mother, crapped on your carpet and put your hamster in the microwave for three minutes on high, then it would be “as good as” TouchWiz. As it is, Blur beats TouchWiz like a rented mule.

      i take built quality over software if moto wants they can build a skin better than htc. The new mirror mode in the motorolla phones are nice so stop the hate. My friend has the htc sensation and its a hot phone but droid x 3 it has better chip and faster even with one core

    i really dont get what makes one android phone better then the next, it seems every one that came out in the last 3 months is basically the same phone with simple minor variants and a fancy plastic casing. It so much better back when android was still new and phones like the og droid and the incredible were game changing, now it seems manufactures put out a phone every couple of weeks or so just to say relevant. I think the companies need to slow down and focas on quality over quantify because this system of market saturation seems silly and counter productive

      I think the Galaxy S II has been game changing. I mean it’s been out a couple of months, and no other phone can still compete with it. It’s still the fastest phone out there, and I don’t understand why manufacturers haven’t set it as the standard for new dual cores.
      I was planning on getting the Bionic, but after owning the Droid X 2, unless they use a different screen I won’t be getting it.
      I used to think Droid Life was exagerating on the screen quality, but after getting one for free, I’m ready to sell it just after 1 week of use. I can’t belive how much the screen actually bothers me, yes it’s very bright, but it’s not enough compensation for such an aweful screen. I must say that the X2 is the worst phone I’ve ever owned, the only thing that I like about it is the desing, and the radio which has been working very good for me.
      I’m honestly hoping the bionic doesn’t share the same screen, or I will just have to keep waiting.
      Galaxy S II LTE *fingers crossed* (Hey, one can dream)

      • Mr_Snrub

        Agreed.  WiFi is so prevalent anyways that I’m gonna wait it out a little longer for the GSII even though it’s only 3G.  I can’t help but think the Bionic is really nothing more than the DX2 with LTE.  As much as I thought I wanted 4G I’d rather wait until Samsung rolls out its GS3 next year rather than opting for Moto’s newest candy coated turd.

        • Binglut9

          Yea but what else do you want in a phone! Its got screen real estate, dual core, gb of ram, Ffc, I mean what else is there? I would like an nfc chip but still what else can a company due this is what verizon customers have been waiting for

          • John

            No pentile screen would be a good start.  It’s a cop out.  Moto can’t make a phone with good battery life, so they resort to crappy screens that draw less power, but suffer greatly in other departments.  I will never buy a pentile screen.

        Wait, the X2 is the worst phone you’ve ever owned simply because of the screen?  Exaggerate much?

        • Cake

          No, I’m not exagerating. It is the worst phone I’ve owned. In the last 1 1/2 years with Verizon I’ve had 4 OG, 1 Droid 2 Global, 2 Droid Incredibles and 4 Sasmung Fascinates. The bad screen, Moto Blur, and the overall slowness of the phone make me wish I had chosen the Incredible 2 instead. However I chose the Droid X 2 because it was selling for more than the Incredible. I’ll be posting it on eBay pretty soon.
          You might like the X2 but I don’t, however I don’t hate it either. That’s why I’m hoping the Bionic won’t have the same screen, and though it won’t be no Exinos (GS II), the OMAP4 will be faster than the Tegra 2.
          I’m putting high hopes on the Bionic, and hoping that the full gig of ram will be usable, unlike the Atrix where at lauch half of it was reserved for the WebTop.

          • palomosan

            I’m with you, I still have the OG then got the Dinc, now I have the Tbolt, MOTO needs to rethink their strategy if they want to sell millions of phone.

            general slowness? I just watched a comparison where that same chipset(in the Atrix) smoked the Sensation, and that same atrix was neck and next with the X2 in a seperate test. Yours had to have been a lemon if you could compare it to an original Dinc and D2G and find it slow…

          • The D2G actually had the fastest stock processor up until the X2 dual core.. it was pretty quick compared to most other Verizon phones

          • Anonymous

            that I’m well aware of, however it was by no means in a different league compared to contemporary single core phones. So to say it’s faster than a dX2? I’ll believe it when I see it

          • Cake

            Lol thanks for that, and like I’ve said Im not a happy X2 user. Maybe I was expecting too much seeing as how I was coming from a Fascinate clocked at 1.5ghz and GPU at 250mhz. It is actually a lot smoother than my X2, even running emulators. That’s why I want to be exited for the Bionic because it has the same GPU as the Fascinate only clocked at 300mhz.
            Maybe I was just expecting too much from a dual core, and hoping it would be faster tag my Rooted/Overclocked Fascinate.

            And Mrs Six unless you’ve used the phone, you can’t really experience how bad MOTOBLUR is and how much is slow downs the phone.

          • Where are you getting these GPU stats? I wish I knew more about what GPUs phones had and how they compare.

            I just watched a review of the “Galaxy R” on youtube, it runs a Tegra 2 and gets the same scores on Quadrant as the GSII, which makes me think much of that Exynos magic is file system tricks.

          Um.. newer moto phones have a different screen than your Droid X.. the DX2, D3, etc have pentile screens with a subpixel matrix that is very visible to the eye, and to some people (myself included), very annoying.  I will never, ever purchase a moto phone with a pentile screen because they are GARBAGE.

    • Tnvprofen

      I agree 100%. It is sad how fast they are pumping phones out. I would rather each oem put out 2 really sick phones a year then 4 mediocre phones. And specs aren’t everything. It comes down to user experience. Yeah it can have a quad core and a gig of ram but without a good user experience it’s worthless. Moto screens are sucking and their software no matter how much they have changed it is still trash. Right now. The galaxy 2 seems to be the only worthy phone even only being 3G. It’s very powerful and nice to look at. And reviewers have said that touchwiz is a nice touch. It’s the whole package.

      What happens is that the advances come in waves that last around 6 to 12 months.

      Before the Nexus One, every smartphone was under 600MHz (OG Droid was 550) single core with 3.7″ or less screens and physical keyboard (iPhone, BB Storm, Hero, Droid Eris were exceptions).

      The 800MHz Nexus One began the wave of 1GHz single core devices that were almost purely touch screen and started using higher quality Super AMOLED and Super LCD screens. Higher res, higher performance, more RAM and internal storage.

      The EVO 4G began the trend of HUGE touch screens and a multimedia focus, with higher RAM and internal storage for the purpose of movies and other high bandwidth data.

      This year was very loaded. Trends were as follows: 1) tablets, 2) 4G for non-Sprint carriers, 3) 1080p recording and playback, 4) 3D, 5) battery battery battery. We saw enhancements to AMOLED technology, SoC efficiency, and mobile RAM (now DDR2 rated). Dual core and more competition in the SoC space thanks to NVIDIA helped achieve this goal. They also tried to do mobile 3D, following last year’s emphasis on TV 3D.

      Next year’s trend is almost guaranteed to be about merging the tablet and smartphone together, especially with even bigger 4.5″+ screens (something that started earlier this year but will catch on very quickly) and flexible and foldable screens and devices (Kyocera Echo, the new Samsung, etc). There will also of course be improvements to speed and battery life, and LTE is going to boom with better radio technology and more ways to make use of that bandwidth.

      Long story short, these trends come in waves of multiple competing devices sold within six months of each other. Sometimes a company will begin the trend, such as HTC with its EVO line and Motorola with its dual core LTE Bionic, whereas others are aimed to beat out everyone else’s similar products, such as Motorola with its OG Droid (best of its wave of devices) and HTC’s Thunderbolt (was supposed to be the best single device of 2010, but is now the first and arguably best single core LTE device).

    I stopped caring about the Bionic on June 24th. I waited patiently for Verizon or Motorola to give me some glimmer of hope as to when the Bionic would be released and all I got was silence. So, with no alternative in site I turned off my trusty Droid X for the last time and purchased the EVO 3D. Thus far I’m enjoying it’s dual core, 3D, WiMax goodness all over NYC. I’m still a Verizon customer, and I may even finger bang the Bionic for a while after it’s released but I can’t see myself leaving the EVO 3D for it.

    Of course I’d be disappointed. Verizon hasn’t come out with a cutting edge phone since Original Droid. We have never gotten a pure Google phone (may never get), AT&T got a Moto dual core 4G long time ago (Atrix), Canada is getting Droid 3 4G phone, we’ll probably be the last to get the Samsung G2. All we had to look forward to was the Bionic, and now we find out that Sprint has Bionic before we even know the release date. WTF.

    What will be disappointing is if after all the delays and revisions that it still has extremely poor battery life. I think that Motorola saw the reception of the SGII and decided they needed to up their game. I could care less about webtop after seeing it on the Atrix.

  • Mike Baustian

    Not sure how it could fall in the category of just being the Verizon version of the Photon if its going to have different cpu at the very least, to me that makes it a different phone. Not to mention we can clearly see physical differences. There is also the promise of “webtop capabilities unlike those we have already seen” with the Bionic, so I will hold hope that it is truly a flagship device when it launches, not just a version of the competition.

Almost every phone that was announced at CES is out now. So there is no excuse for the Bionic to be better then the Photon. Like I said I will still buy it since this is the only 2011 LTE phone coming this year for verizon.

        Absolutely.  If the Bionic turns out to be the Bugonic, I could give a sh** less if it is 4G.  Have your 4G speeds with a bucket of bugs.  I’ll rock out on a 3G phone which I’m hooked into wifi 90% of the time anyway with and enjoy something that works.  Seriously, if Moto has been delaying this phone, it isn’t because there is one or two *tiny* bugs with it….hell, Moto releases phones with that all the time without blinking.  There has to be something seriously f’d with this thing.  The longer they wait, the more it fades.  Surprisingly, Sammy should have jumped all over this and released the SG II.  They have missed a golden opportunity to take Moto down for the count.  With so many OG Droids dying before 2 years is even up, I’ll tell ya I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to tell Moto my disgust…..with my wallet.

    Yes and No… First and foremost I wanted this phone months ago… it takes away from the wow factor that you’re device isnt unique or cutting edge until the next guy can step up the bar. That said my OG is taking a beating.. I have contemplated giving up the quest and going with another piece of hardware. Disappointed or not, im in it for the long haul so I hope with little hope this device will be worth the wait.

    I too hope there’s a little cherry on the top of this properly released handicapped hardware twin to the photon. = )

      I knew this would happen, which is why I just bit the bullet and went for a Thunderbolt when I could have. My OG Droid was simply dying.

        It actually is… and the Bionic’s screen will look identical to the X2’s, which isn’t good. 
        Better screen-1.2GHZ dual core processor-Thinner/Lighter-Better cameras (probably)- MUCH better battery life (If its 3G, then it’ll have even better battery life)I mean the GS2 is just plain fast. Then again so is the D3 which will use the same processor as the Bionic, but its still competition. And there is a reason the Bionic still hasn’t released, and we don’t even know the real specs for sure. If the specs were truly amazing, we’d probably have heard them showing it off to get people more interested.  Because if the specs so far are true, it’ll just be a bigger Droid 3 without a keyboard. Also it’ll have 4G but that has its negative affects.

         It will be newer than the one on the D3. It will be very Honeycomb-like.

          Not from the leaked photos it’s not.  Looks exactly the same.

            It will be an even newer Blur. Kellex, among other trustworthy sources, have insinuated as much. The photos are just prototype/beta shots. You think they would really unveil the new Blur just yet?

            Doubtful, I don’t see Motorola developing their brand new software just for the Droid 3 only to change it again.  It might be slightly different here and there like webtop added but unlikely beyond that.

    if it doesn’t have the 4.5 inch screen i might just wait for the function super amoled plus ftw

      The Function won’t likely have a 4.5″ screen either.  Besides, I wouldn’t want to go any bigger than 4.3″ especially on a pentile display.  I’ll be very disappointed if it’s 4.5″.

        i meant that if i have to decide between the two phones at 4.3 in i will choose the function every time but if the bionic has 4.5inch then i will definitely consider it 

  • The difference, which is huge, is it will be the first dual core LTE phone. No one else’s 4G compares.

      The other difference is that it’ll cost $100 more and only be available on tiered data plans.
      As a Verizon customer I’m ticked off by their lackluster push for great LTE phones.  They had a chance to take AT&T and Sprint to the house and instead seem more intent on squeezing every drop of $$ they can from whatever subscribers they have.  
      It’s history repeating:  give the people an amazing phone and they will come in droves.  Give them locked down, crapware loaded phones on expensive contracts and then be puzzled why you are failing to repeat the iPhone’s success.

      • Tiered data plans? Not if you’re a current Verizon customer like most of us readers are.

          it is’t any help to all the people on AT&T I told to wait to switch for this “awesome” LTE phone on Verizon. What should I tell them now, knowing that they have unlimited plans on AT&T?  Is it worth switching once the Bionic drops knowing that Verizon is going to screw them up the wazoo with data fees once they start streaming Netflix?  

          And for everyone waiting to switch resting on their laurels that Verizon will allow unlimited data upgrades for current 3G phone owners, you best cash in while the chips are still in a winning position.  Even many 4G owners have gotten nice notices that their unlimited days are not going to be forever.

            They should just get an Atrix which is essentially a Bionic but without LTE and keep their unlimited plans.  It’s really a great phone since it got the big update and has been unlocked, there is a stock 2.3 rom available for it.  Or they could wait for the GS2.  Of course, there is the matter of AT&T’s 4G or rather lack thereof.

            At this moment the atrix its the best phone out there and then i would say droid 3 with the new omap and the mirror mode. I have to admit that the htc sensation its a beast htc should make one like that for verizon   but not plastic 🙂

          • DBK

            Droid 3 is the best phone out there right now. The Atrix doesn’t compare.

          • Guest

            if droid 3 has the dock it will been better

            Global ready > Dock

        The higher price does suck but that’s for a reason, LTE chips are new and expensive.  Also what Forte said.

        Only be available on tiered data plans? Wrong. You only get tiered data if you’re a new customer or an existing customer that didn’t have unlimited data before July 7th. I am locked into unlimited data till Verizon changes it again, hopefully not.

    Isn’t that basically what it is going to be though?
