And Yet Another Set of DROID Bionic Pictures Appears in the Wild

Shortly after seeing one of the first videos of the DROID Bionic in the wild, we received a brand new set of pictures that take us deeper inside.  As you can see from the gallery, the Bionic is still receiving software updates to fix any last minute bugs before the phone is released to the masses on September 8.  Also included is a glimpse at potential battery life (down 10% in 3 hours), the About screen (which shows Android 2.3.4), the SIM card/SD stacked slot, and its hotspot app.

Is there anything we don’t know about this phone anymore?  Fun, fun.  

Cheers ___!

    Half of you idiots that are saying how bad this phone sucks are just gonna run out and get it so just sit back, have nice warm glass of shut the hell up and enjoy the damn phone. Regardless of if it’s better than stuff that is coming out in 5 years or not……IT’S BETTER THAN THE DAMN OG!

  • Wes Watson

    Awwww man!   Is that another battery door like the Droid 3?  I can’t stand removing the back on this Droid 3 – it feels like its going to break in half every time.  This looks like almost the same style of door 🙁  Motorola; it’s just a bad design!!!  Stop already!

    • Anonymous

      It’s a highly flexible rubberized plastic.  You can bend it in half and it won’t break.

  • I just p a i d $21.87 for an i P a d 2-64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasonîc Lumîx GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS.I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://BídsFírst.Com

    I had another chance yesterday to play with this phone some more yesterday and it is almost awesome. The screen and locked bootloader is the deal breaker for me. I have owned and used just about all the motor droids but I have moved onto the Nexus S so it might be unfair to compare screens. No matter how many fancy animations they slap on blur it will always be blur, slow and a resource hog and it will only be a matter of time before one gets tired of it.

    Hopefully this thing gets rooted soon after release and does not take as long as the D3. I doubt that the bootloader will ever get unlocked going by the history of all the other droids besides the original.

    I was hoping for a reason to come back to Moto and Verizon but this is not it yet.

    Please Moto, use better screens and lets not lock down the devices so much. At the very least please give the users a chance to root D3 so the Bionic has a chance.

    You know what i find funny?  All the hate on PenTile and sucking on the AMOLED+ teet.  Now for the funny part.  The industry is moving to PenTile (yes even Samsung).  Granted the screens are still developing and it’s not a surprise that with each revision things get a little better, which is why i believe my friend when he tells me the Bionic screen is much better than the DX2.  I don’t post here, mainly because there is no point getting into a fanboy/flame fest with people i don’t know, but i just wanted to put this out there for you guys.  Hopefully you will do some research and see that PenTile is getting better and will be on more and more devices, including those precious HD screens you all have been pining for.

      Almost all screens are pentile, it just depends on what form is used…

    • Guest

      i do agree maybe the pentile on the droidx2, which is my device its not as good as the pentile that htc use. They are making it better on every device  droid 3 for example and now the droid bionic. They know that pentile saves battery and that is one of the reasons they are going with this technology.

    why do i have a feeling that VZW will only have this one for the month of september or longer and the VZW won’t get the GSII til October

    It is a moto, so just because it says 90% it doesn’t mean it is.  It could be between 85 and 94%.  So it could be better or worse than indicated.  Also, the screen was off that entire time, so 3 hours/10% with ZERO usage is a little below par for me.  I guess we will see soon enough.

    • Previous pictures of the Bionic show it reporting 1% increments.

    Is it me or the back cover looks cheap?

    • Anonymous

      LTE radios vs. Thickness, etc.

      Kind of cheap looking, but compared to what though? I like this over the clacky, shiny, scratchy, smudgy cheap plastics of Samsung units. Is it straight up plastic or soft touch coated aluminum like their older phones? Looks plastic

  • For those talking about the screen and how bad it looks I don’t think the screen is the problem. Looking at the second picture the word “Motorola” looks like somebody tried to rub it out. My guess there using a bad camera or they edit the pictures after they took them and the lost a lot of the picture quality.

    if release is on sept 8, preorder should start this thurs? or next thurs?

It’s always very great and jam-packed with amusement for me personally and my office co-workers to search your web site at the least thrice per week to read through the new things you have got.

      if u gotta look at your phone that close to your face, i don’t think any screen technology matters.

    • Tbh I can’t see nothing from these screenshots…I wouldn’t go by pictures from a leak to see how good or bad it is…I think most people as of now are just saying this so they can justify to themselves as to why not purchase the device

      • Interstellarmind

        my justification for not buying it will be the htc vigor or nexus prime.

  • Anyone else tired of seeing this phone and that phone ‘coming soon’? We’ve been in quite a dead spot for some time now. Then I see Samsung spouting about the GSII how great that is and it’s all over the world and it’s ‘coming’ to the US. That one ticks me off the most. Everyone has the thing but us?? There’s alot of marketing failure all over this. Whoever’s first would probably make a killing on sales. But seems no one wants to be first and instead are satisfied to join the ‘horde’ all coming out at similar times. That’s foolishness and bad business. If I own Motorola,I’m commanding my marketing group to get that phone out NOW!! They risk losing alot of $$ otherwise….

    Sorry moto, u and I… No more strings attached

  • Author freaked me out a bit, thought it read “down to 10% in 3 hours”…….phew, it’s only down 10% in 3 hours >.<

  • Droidbot

    Here’s one question for all those haters. Why are you even commenting on a Droid bionic blog if u hate and are waiting for the next bug phone which will also be delayed. Bunch if hypocrites. You with playing with the phone once it hits the store just like everyone else so quit your whining hatred.

    • Guest

      I agree with you, specially people like this one 1bad69z28, who come to every droid post to talk shit about the droid bionic. Even though, he will be the first one playing with it when it hit the stores. 1bad69z28you are miserable.

  • Android86

    ya I’m still skeptical about the battery life…  My Motorola Droid X
    has been on for 8 hours 58 min 11 sec. I’m only down to 80%.  Here’s the
    list on my Battery Usage screen.

    Display 44%
    phone idle 25%
    Cell Standby 20%
    voice calls 3%
    Android OS 3%
    Browser 3%

    little
    more usage than the bionic and I’ve only used 10% more battery.  We
    shall see in the near future about this “battery life” they proclaim.
    haha

    • Anonymous

      I got a droid x, and i have the extended battery from motorola got in at 6am and got off at 6pm.. lots of browsing the web off and on, 10 minutes worth of gaming (during break), display on lowest setting 42%, phone idle 12%, cell standby 10% android system 5%, game 4%, facebook 3%, go launcher 2%.. my batterry after no charging and 12 hour shift at 20%.  Not too bad after a twelve hour shift.. oh and some texting.

    • Yea you must have everything off including synching

    • my OG droid with original battery lasts the whole day…but if I watch a movie, it’ll die in about 2 hours…..

    The screen didn’t use any battery, you gotta love that. I’m not going to be holding the phone up to one eye so a little grain is a small price to pay for the battery life.

    This is an upgrade monster, ICS here it comes….

  • FortitudineVincimus

    “(down 10% in 3 hours),”

    how do you figure? your assuming that 1 screen that says 2:54:07 up time was taken at the same time as the 90% icon photo? Also IF that is even true, notice how nothing was actually done or used in that 2:54:07.

    Shame on you for assuming that and posting that sentence. 

    • Anonymous

      Absolutely true. And using 10% in three hours of screen off standby time is nothing to be impressed by. My incredible loses maybe 10% in 8-10 hours overnight. Granted, it’s not LTE, but it’s also a 1300 mAh battery and hasn’t been reported as having stellar battery life like the Bionic..

      • Dash Speeds

        Really? Because my Incredible suckes down a good 10% an hour on cell standby.

    getting more and more excited for this phone with every pic/video leak 😀

  • I would like to show some appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of this challenge. Because of checking throughout the world-wide-web and coming across strategies which were not productive, I assumed my life was gone. Being alive devoid of the approaches to the difficulties you have fixed through this review is a crucial case, and the kind that could have negatively affected my career if I hadn’t noticed your web site. That ability and kindness in playing with the whole thing was very helpful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such a stuff like this. I am able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for this professional and result oriented help. I will not be reluctant to recommend the sites to any individual who should receive tips about this area.

  • Carlito Pr787

    screen looks nice

  • DO NOT WANT.

    And all you people going from a Thunderbolt to the Bionic… seriously??!  Why bother…?

    • Have you played with a thunderbolt before pretty easy answer

    • Q

      Because the Thunderbolt is flaming pile of garbage and I need a phone that works?

    • Mike Johnson

      true, the TB is a POS but I agree with Sporty. We’re always being told that the very-next-best-thing is right-around-the-corner and then finally we’re offered some junk like the TB and the ‘ very-next-best-thing is right-around-the-corner’ cycle begins anew. I should probably dump my TB for the Bionic or should I wait for Sammy’s GSII or do I really wait for the mythical Verizon Prime. such bullshit

  • DO NOT WANT.

    • Anthony Alves

      DO NOT CARE.

  • Erica Marchand

    OOOOO these pictures are getting me more excited as we speak. Now Im done drooling over the Bionic, it’s time to unroot my Thunderbolt so I can have Verizon send me a new one that doesn’t randomly turn off and constantly loose 4G :/

    and as far as a nexus device coming to Verizon I’m not holding my breathe on that one. Verizon has been millions marketing the Droid name, along with HTC sense with the thunderbolt I don’t see them getting a nexus device. especially if its going to be a samsung device, I just rather not. Not to mention Vzw has always been a huge fan of the bloatware, I wish they didn’t but they do.

  • Darat532

    I have primarily all Motorola phones but I think the Droid Bionic is too little too late. The phone is already dated before it is released. With all the 720P screens and 1.5Ghz dual core and 1.5Ghz quad core processors getting ready to be released I think this phone is going to flop hard. I feel it was inexcusable for Motorola and Verizon to not even advertise the Droid 3 (which is a very good qwerty phone) just to make the Droid Bionic more desirable.
    My next purchases will be Samsung, HTC and LG until Motorola gets their act together and puts out class leading phones.

    • Q

      When are all these 720P 1.5Ghz phones being released?

      • Darat532

        There is the HTC Vigor that has a dual core 1.5 Ghz with 720P screen that is due in October.

        There is the nexus Prime that has a dual core 1.5 Ghz with 720P Super Amoled due in October / November

        There is the LG Optimus Pro that is due by the end of year that has a quad core 1.5 Ghz with 720P Amoled Screen

        Just to name 3 

        • Alex Schechter

          says who???? this is all just speculation!

        • All garunteed on VZW?

        • Not one thing you said was fact its all speculation…you keep playing that waiting game and please let me know how it turns out

        • Q

          And you’re sure all these devices are coming out within those timeframes?  We have barely seen ANYTHING at all from those phones.  All we know is rumored specs.  Look at how long it’s taking the Bionic to come out and we’re actually getting solid info on that phone.  We havent even begun getting solid rumors on these upcoming phones.  

          Im done waiting.  Bionic or bust.

          • Anonymous

            WELL SAID!!!!

          • Manny

            We have barely seen anything at all because it is months before they come out. What we know about the Bionic is rumored specs, too. Send me a link to where Verizon/Motorola directly confirm that it’ll have a 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP camera, etc. You act like phone carriers hype up a product months before release. That’d be a horrible approach. “Buy our Nexus Prime! Coming out in 2-4 months to a phone carrier near you!” I, personally, will be waiting for December to roll around to see the next generation of phones. I’d understand not waiting if it was 5 or 6 months away, but for something right around the corner that has a 50% better processor and Ice Cream Sandwich.. well, I don’t see why you wouldn’t give it a try. This is coming from an OG Droid owner whose phone is on it’s last leg.

          • What you mean its on the best buy website that’s pretty confirmed to me and its not 50% increase in power

    According to the 2nd photo you get less then 3 hours on a full charge?

    • According to the photo you only drop 10% percent in battery life in 3 hours and I would say that’s pretty good

      • NSBJJ

        So the photo shows it’s been used for almost three hours with a full battery.  Correct?

  • Pennywise

    OMG that screen looks HORRIBLE in those pics, TERRIBLE I can’t read anything through all the PENTILE – IT’S HORRIFIC!!!  I one time read the word PENTILE so this is DEALBREAKER.  I’m getting all of the phones that aren’t out yet that we don’t know anything about or when they’ll be available WOOOT

            , I päid $21.41 for an íPad 2.64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasoníc Lumíx GF 1 Cámera that we got for $38.79 there arriving tomorrow by UP S.I will never pay such expensive retail príces in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LCD T V to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.

          says WHO? please link me. Otherwise, I’m going to buy an actual phone instead of waiting for a hypothetical one. It should last me for a year, just like the OG did.

          • P3droid

            Yeah, there is a phone named “NP” and it is real, and it will be out this year, not soon but this year. Specs for the phone are well known. Can’t say to much more as i’m already in trouble with Sammy legal.

          • Alex Schechter

            way to troll!

          • Icculus760

            If it’s the REAL P3Droid, I’m inclined to believe his rumorness

          • Up2Bcrazy

            He’s not being a troll moron he is speaking facts. And I will second his comments as I’ve gotten the same EXACT feedback from a contact I have as well who is actually working on and with the NP. 

            As far as the Bionic goes they can keep it. Moto is a day late and a dollar short on the release and within no time flat there will be other devices out that will blow it out of the water. The bootloader lock, bloatware…etc will be meaningless once some of these other VZW devices hit in short order.  

      • Anonymous

        Wrong, Moto’s phones are locked down regardless of carrier. Look at their phones on sprint and at&t. Locked down too. Just because the photon and atrix have since been unlocked doesn’t mean Moto isn’t sending their phones out locked down, so I doubt it’s really all Verizon’s fault as much as people like to blame them.

        • Alex Schechter

          Do those other carriers have so much bloatware like verizon? honestly I wouldn’t know. either way, there has never been a google phoen release on verizon.

          • And there was never a Google phone release on Sprint before the Nexus S 4G so that’s poor logic. I agree that I don’t think it will show at Verizon but your logic there is just awful.

        P3droid said the next Nexus was in fact gonna come to Verizon

        I love when some moron spreads that its all verizons fault bootloaders are locked, when they obviously sell phones that can be unlocked….ur an idiot

        • Teevo0108

          U should know that the motor photon 4g is unlocked also the Atrix so what is the problem with Verizon then Nothing but the zoom and the og droid that’s it. Motorola said it will be up to the carriers.

          • faber

            I’m fully aware, stop believing everything moto says. There are phones from other makers unlocked on verizon network. moto had unlocked two phones because of the huge back lash. verizon had started they will allow unlocked devices, how do you explain that?

          • faber

            Phandroid, Remember that article I posted a couple of hours ago about a Verizon rep who said that phones with unlocked bootloaders weren’t allowed on their network? Yea, they said that was a mistake. Stand down, folks.

          • faber

            The point is moto encrypts theirs to where it can’t be unlocked. Htc, unlocked. samsung, unlocked on and on

          • HTC was only unlocked because HTC gave away the key

          • faber

            Exactly

      • Anonymous

        Then why are moto’s locked on all carriers and none of the other phones(except htc recently but they are unlocking the bootloaders)?

      You seem to be confused as to what a brick looks like. But hey, feel free to show me those iPhone 4-size 4G dual-core phones you seem to enjoy over this. I’d be very interested in purchasing one.

      Also, what is this bloatware you speak of? I’m curious.

    • Well I would like a Phone built with an HTC style body, Samsung Super Amelod plus HD display, Samsung Galaxy S2 processor Speed, Nokia N8 12MP camera, Motorola durability, and a mix of HTC sense 3.5 with the new Blur mixed together, with the option to go Vanilla! and of course 4GLTE.
      But Guess What??   Santa Clause doesn’t give a shit about me, and He’ll never get me one.. I’ll probably get the same thing I got last year. an old StarTAC from the pawn shop, a roll of toilet paper, Alka Seltzer cold an Flu, and Fruit of the Loom boxer briefs that are one size too small, which cause major crack exposure, and serious chaffing..  
      So stop complaining!

      Too little, Too late, This device has lost it’s advantage about 6 months ago!!!  So long Bionic time to move on. this would’ve been a great device around Feb this year.

      • Dash Speeds

        Five months before the processor was even released to manufacturers? Riiiiiiiight…..

        • Anonymous

          But, take a look at the overall specs and the other OEM’s will have thier next devices out here in a couple of months if not sooner with all of the new next wave of 1.5ghz processors and specs. The Bionic should’ve been out earlier and would’ve dominated earlier this year. SOrry but HTC, SAmsung LG have moved on. I really think Verizon and Moto will give this device light marketing and advertising as they focus on thier next device. Verizon and Moto both know they missed the boat on this device with it’s late deploment.

            you missed the boat to go back to mexico stupid troller. This device will be great

    Why has there been no confirmed release date yet? We are weeks out from the September 8 date.

  • Mauricio Sanchez

    Down 10% in 3 hours? My OGD goes down 10% in 3 minutes -__- I’m getting this, I don’t care. I want the Galaxy S 2, but… I feel the need to stay loyal to the DROID line of phones.

    • Dash Speeds

      Wow, skipped right over that bit. Hella impressive for an LTE phone, I know people with Thunderbolts that don’t last much longer than that on standby.

      • Cmrstang

        If you look at the usage stats the phone was obviously not being used. Cell standby 49% and Phone idle 49%. The display is not even on the list and we all know that is the biggest battery drain.

        • Dash Speeds

          Not on pentile screens, cell standby has been the biggest drain.

      • My TB is down 30% in 6 hours… 5% an hour, and that’s with normal usage–not terribly heavy, but still doing things on there. Even connected to 4G at some points in the past 6 hours. But I am still intrigued by the Bionic.

    • Blood

      Dam dude your droid must be broken.

      • Dash Speeds

        Probably not, I’m right there too, primed kernel and all…

        • Mauricio Sanchez

          Haha, I love you guys, I read that first comment and thought I had a screwed up phone or something. I mean, it doesn’t literally take 10 minutes, maybe half an hour, but to go down 10% in 3 hours… that’s insane.

          • Mine didas well and I thought it was the batter so i bought a new one and that battery drained at the same rate…

          • Mauricio Sanchez

            I did the same thing -__-

      • Mctypething

        Mine must be broken then too. Once I take it off the charger and start using it, I’m at 90% within 10 minutes.

        • Blood

          You must not be treating your droid right. I’m at 600 MHz on GPA 16 and it takes about 2 hours to go down 10%

          • Mauricio Sanchez

            Pete’s GPA ROMs have the best battery life, but… I need my Project Elite features, mannn 🙁

          • Anonymous

            agreed. the music lockscreen and all the extra features from CM7 keep my OG D1 semi competitive.

          • Mauricio Sanchez

            Exactly.

          • Mr.Joe

            600MHz=sluggish as hell when you actually want to use it.

      Dam dude your droid must be broken.

    • Anonymous

      It’s not that impressive. Looking at that screenshot you can see that the phone was sitting idle with the screen off the whole time. My D3 can do the same without a giant brick of a battery.

      If your OG loses battery that fast your battery is probably just losing it’s ability to hold a charge.

      • Yeah but with 4g it is impressive….if I did that with my stock bolt it probably be down to 40%..

        • Blood

          Well that’s because the thunderbolt was a failure. It’s a 1 year old version of the evo with lots of problems.

          • I agree the bolt is a pos

    • Nev elo Stone

      I feel the same way cause it seems the droid brand made android what it is today, only phone that can live up to the OGD   would be a droid branded nexus phone built by Moto of course

      • Guest

        could not say it any better but that’s if they put the goods inside the phone unlike og droid, which was just 256 of ram and 550 of ghz. It would of been nice if they made the droid x unlock for the people that enjoy plain vanilla skin etc. I am staying with the new blur

  • Anonymous

    sooo it does come with a 16 gb sd card? 

    • T Hall

      From what I have seen 16gb internal, and a 16gb micro.

      • hkklife

        Original reports were 32GB internal and no card but now it’s confirmed 16gb internal (I think split 7.x/7.x) and a 16gb card included.   2 years ago including a 16GB card on the OG Droid was revolutionary. But now, if it’s not 32GB I wouldn’t even bother with a card. I’d rather have more internal storage and let me bring my own card to the microSD slot.

        • So you would rather have nothing?

        • Anonymous

          16 GB internal is 32 times the amount of memory of the OG’s and 1 GB ram is 4 times the amount (plus it’s faster), also doubling the overall storage with a 16 GB card.  I think I’ll be fine.

          • Guest

            there are people that still feel that the og droid its better than this beast lol

      reports i’ve read including on this site say no sd included

      • Anonymous

        Actually, there was an article on this site recently with pictures of the manual stating it will come with a 16 GB card pre-installed.  Considering Verizon’s other 4G phones all came with one I’d say there’s a good chance this will as well, especially at a $300 price point.

        • Anonymous

          if you look here http://www.droid-life.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/bionic-specs.jpg it says nothing about any size being “pre-installed” …though i did find the article you’re referring to, so if this is the most up to date information…i stand corrected

    Seems to be pentile, but looks waaay better than the DX2 for some reason.
