DROID Bionic Pops Up in Video, Shows Off Boot Animation, New Blur and Speed

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYN6ZPGOiIU[/youtube]

Up until now, we have really just had a bunch of blurry cam shots of the DROID Bionic showing the same info that our sources have been telling us for months.  But thanks to a video just posted by our homies over at Phandroid, we finally get some live action.  The first thing you’ll notice is the boot animation which is essentially the same animation we saw back in May, so nothing incredibly new there.

We do however, get a look at the Bionic’s new Blur that many of you have become familiar with thanks to the DROID3.  One thing I noticed though, is the speed at which this tipster was able to grab an icon and bounce it between screens.  The DROID3 can accomplish a similar task, but that 1GB of RAM in the Bionic appears to make those transitions so much smoother.

The bootup time also seems to be above-average.  We did see a home screen redraw in there and a laggy app drawer at first press, but that was just seconds after the phone had initially booted up and is usually expected.

There is an LTE speed test in there too at 1-bar coverage; nothing to get too excited about.

What do you guys think?  Still torn?

Cheers Raj and Todd!

    I’m not impressed with the speed test shown.  I had expected to see 14+Mbps at 4G.  Looks good but is is worth $299.  I don’t see the value.

  • okay, not once did i see any proof this is a bionic in the video. show me the proof.

    I don’t understand the design philosophy behind that lock screen. It looks so.. off to the left. The unlock icon is tucked all the way to the left. It doesn’t help that the digital clock and date are left-aligned as well. 

    Meanwhile, the ringer/sound icon is 40% smaller (why?) and floating off center to the right. The best excuse of this aesthetically unappealing layout that I can think of is ergonomics, where they try to not push the icons too far to the right edge in hopes to make it easier for a right-handed person to swipe the icons from left to right using their thumb. 

    But in doing so, they have killed a rather sleek looking interface. Yes, form should follow function, but they could’ve certainly made it cleaner and more pleasing to the eye. Well, a designer’s eye, that is.

  • I must show appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this particular issue. Right after exploring throughout the world wide web and meeting tricks that were not helpful, I was thinking my life was well over. Being alive minus the approaches to the problems you’ve resolved through the article is a crucial case, and ones which could have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I had not noticed the website. Your actual mastery and kindness in playing with all the pieces was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a solution like this. It’s possible to now relish my future. Thanks very much for your professional and result oriented guide. I won’t think twice to refer your web sites to any person who should get direction on this matter.

    If this phone has any kind of home screen redraw issues, I will be very very disappointed, especially since it has 1 GB of RAM. Might very well be a deal breaker.

    Blur is still awful.  Cyanogen is where it’s at!  
    If moto wants to continue to lock bootloaders for absolutely no reason at all, they will fall behind.  If this were unlocked, I would be there on launch day, cash in pocket, ready to buy one, no questions asked.  But I WILL NOT purchase anything that does not encompass the open, free spirit that has allowed Android to thrive.  I bought a Xoom, because it’s unlocked.  It’s just that simple.

      Cyanogen is overrated, I wasn’t impressed with it other than the theme engine integration.

    Wow! That lag was horrible. Waited how long for this? 

  • Meh. Doesn’t seem any faster than my Nexus S. Still has lag getting to the homescreen. I am unimpressed, honestly.

  • What’s up with the bootloader on this phone?  Locked, encrypted, unlockable, etc?  This is my main concern if I’m going to get the phone or not.

    I for one am impressed with the speed of Blur and the animations. I think the display will be a deal breaker when I see this in person though. We’ll see…

    Idk why many of you are talking about this redraw and delay, maybe its because I currently have an env3 and cant wait to get my hands on this but everything I saw in the video was fine. If you guys are honestly going to complain about millisecond delays and start up times on this phone than you are just desperate to find something wrong with it. And why the hell would you be complaining about the start up time anyway, how often do you honestly turn on your phone? and even if you are constantly turning it off for some reason do you really need to use it 5 seconds after you hit the power button??

    Like the boot animation. Question, what’s up with Verizon and their marketing/advertising department, this should be everywhere over commercials, billboards, etc., this should be up everywhere but I bet the average consumer has no idea about this device.

    • Greg

      Verizon and Motorola are the worst for marketing. I totally agree with you on this. if it wasn’t for us Droid users, a lot of people wouldn’t know anything about their products until long after they are released. They need a whole new Marketing director.

      • Legoturte92

        They had a great marketing with the Droid X and that’s about it. They had that scavenger hunt which was fun too.

          Are you kidding?  The OG Droid’s commercials were the greatest of all time.

    • joba

      I dont know too much about marketing and stuff but It seems to be that when there are huge releases there is way less advertising for it than you would expect. Take the movie Avatar for example, the biggest box office movie of all time and they didnt spend a lick of advertising on it until week before its release

    • Anonymous

      The iHype happened, Verizon is all up in crApple’s ass.  Their Droid brand plays second fiddle now, they made one average commercial for the Charge which I’ve only seen a handful of times and basically ignored the X2 and Droid 3 altogether.

    Ill wait and see if it gets rooted and bootloader unlocked before I buy.

    • babadush

      pretty much

  • I gotta say, it does start up pretty fast and the new blur does look nice.

    But if I know blurr, it will be laggy for no reason, and it will still redraw after you do anything.

    Nexus Prime or GTFO

  • Trooper

    Not torn at all.  Unimpressed and late to the game.  Thanks for the phail Moto.

    • how is it late to the game if it is the first duel core LTE phone?

      • Lol good question bra…haters gonna hate

  • Is this running Ice Cream Sandwich, the screen transitions when moving an icon look exactly like Honeycomb???????

    • nope, 2.3.4 I think, also with a new version of blurr

  • skinja

    This phone was awesome 6 months ago. Now it is just good. The only thing this phone offers that is unique is LTE and dual core in the same phone.

    And a big drawback may be that pentile screen. I need to see a bionic screen in person since it is supposed to be better than the DX2.

    Nope. Please learn how Android manages memory resources before posting misinformation like this. If it’s faster then the software has been changed to allow faster page transitions.

    Speaking of which… why the hell don’t we have a release date for this thing yet? Something seems a bit strange about that. No heavy marketing ahead of the launch? No tacky Motorola teaser commercials with an astronaut circling the sun as a bionic arm wields itself from beneath his suit, thereby making him able to save himself, his crew, and his business from surefire annihilation?

    Something is definitely off…

        All I’m saying is, pick up the phone and use it before knowing whether or not its going to have redraw. The droid 3 has redraw because the ram cant handle blur -probably- AND the redraw problems are probably nothing compared to my OG

    • Anonymous

      big ass titties LOL

  • PyroHoltz

    I like that background.

  • Here’s what you will all experience with the “new blur”.  There will be a delay going back to the homescreen.  And there will be homescreen redraws.  They will not last long however because the 4430 is speedy as hell, but they will be there.  Task switching takes WAY to long.  Instead of it bringing up the last 8 used like every other phone, it will bring up the app drawer, except it will be grouped as “recently used” instead of all your apps.  And the animation it will take to get there adds more time waiting for the phone to fumble around.  

    The home launcher for blur will weigh about 40mb.  Way too bloated.  There will be countless amounts of crapware, but worse, the crapware will auto load itself into your RAM, further hurting the performance.  

    You will spend many days actually really liking the home launcher.  It’s very pretty.  But in the end, you will throw your favorite 3rd party launcher on, and the performance increase you will see will be so dramatic that you will not be able to help but to keep the 3rd party launcher on.  Only, the quick contacts widget that you fell in love with on the blur launcher will not work with your 3rd party launcher.  You will search endlessly on the market for something similar, only to come up empty handed.

    Every once in a while you will uninstall the 3rd party launcher and go back to stock, just because the stock launcher is so slick, and that quick contacts widget is so slick that you want to show it off.  But you will miss the lightning performance of the 3rd party launcher, and you will grow tired of back-to-the-homescreen lag/redraws, and eventually come back to it.  

    Yes my sons and daughters, these are the days that lie ahead for you…

      • I like LP as much as the next guy, but we haven’t seen an update in like a year.  Carnales is too busy with that music app.  Plus, the quick contacts widget is coded into blur somehow, I don’t think it can come loose, but I hope!

      If your talking about home launchers use pandahome. I know it’s not LPP but you can skin all of your apps of the bloatware you dont want to look at or hid it like on my Droid3. And there will be bloatware but damn did you have to go all Edgar Allen Poe on it?

    • Anthony

      This is so true at least with the droid 3 that I own. Lets hope that extra ram really make that much of a difference and the crap ware loads it down. Great comment!

    • Anonymous

      Holding the home button is supposed to bring up the last apps used, only difference is that it’s via Moto’s app drawer instead of the default android hovering list of 8 but it’s still the last used apps.  Not sure what the problem is unless it’s strictly because of what you consider to be lag getting there.  You can disable those fancy animations that take up time, you know that right?  Settings > Display > Animation

      The new blur launcher performance wasn’t any slower than LP when I played with a D3 either, in fact it was smoother; I did notice the redraws though and a slight delay when opening the app list but then the Bionic also has twice the ram.

    After that initial slowness, it didn’t seem to have any of the redraw problems like the Droid 3.  When it finally drops, you should do a side-to-side comparison of the speed.

    43 seconds to start up and finish loading the SD card not including the time before the video where it had already been initiated to start up.

    Still not impressed with this phone. I’ll wait to try it at the store.

    • Thats what happens when you release a phone every 3 months under the same operating system.  The technology can only go so far.  If I were a major player in Android, I would release maybe 2 high end phones per year and 2 low end with no variations in design based on carriers.  Its impossible to ever achieve in type of scale when you have so many different products, with different names.  It gets confusing for the end user.

      Kudos to Samsung, for getting it right with the Galaxy S line and their marketing, sales strategies around it.

      • The choice is one of the reasons that Android is so much better than that fruity brand that limits you to “maybe 2 high end phones per year”. Actually it might be “2 low end phones per year”.

        • Stelv81

          Android is becoming fragmented though and they are releasing too many junky phones instead of releasing fewer quality phones. They need to spend a little more time on phones so they are not half baked at release.

        i used to say the smae thing until i installed Synergy ROM last week. My battery life is basically doubled

          Yup Synergy FTW plus the newest radio leak is killer. Instant switch between 4G and 3G. Saves on all the battery that was wasted looking for a signal

      • how do u do that if you just upgraded the tbolt 5 months ago bye it out right for 600+

        download the leaked gb. Increases the battery life so much more than original. Night and day difference.

        It doesn’t matter, they were waiting to make that comment anyway because of the qHD display and have already determined that it must be a bad display because it isn’t a Super Duper AMOLED HD Prime XL Plus 2 Pro display from Samsung.

  • I need this device. Seeing the red eye made me remember how I loved watching the boot animation when I bought my D1 in Nov 2009.
