DROID Bionic Gets Lengthy Video Walk-through: Wallpapers, Speed and a Minor Bug Included

YouTube Preview Image

By the time this phone arrives on September 8, there won’t be any surprises left thanks to a couple of brave tipsters who continue to feed us magic.  What we have here is another clip of the DROID Bionic that gives us a peep at what the static and live wallpapers look like, along with more LTE speed tests and an odd home screen bug.

And while this video like all Bionic videos these days, will receive plenty of hate, there is one thing that is clear after watching this – this phone appears to be incredibly fast.  Only some real hands-on time will tell the true story though.  Here’s to hoping that Blur doesn’t bog down its dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM like it seems to do with every other phone.

Cheers ___!

    Where can I get the dump system with all the wallpapers..?

  • This is what I hate about Moto devices & I’ve had 2 already and they all had glitches just like this one. Can you live with them Yes do you want to No. For 250 or 300 bucks I want a quality device. Yes they have come a long way but why not come a long way in the laboratories and in the testing phase of the phones life. Why must this phone show up on youtube and in customer’s hands with glitches? Really this isn’t the Bionic, the original Bionic was killed and they put another phone in its place and labeled it the Bionic. This device was rushed to match or come close to the release date of the original bionic which equals a bad over all experience. Just my 2 cents

    You know … Here;s the thing.

    We can all say that Motoblur is really nice and fast, now.

    Well, sure, because the damn hardware has increased to be able to, and still run the OS as well.

    So, that said … as fast as it is now, with blur, how about a showing of it without? 
    (For those who might want it that way …..    🙂    )

    It would scream!

    I think this new version of motoblur is sick… I went from eh because of thickness to I’m getting it now.. no more waiting, and after using a charger.. I NEED 25mb down… CYA DX

  • I am pleasantly surprised at how fast this thing is. Never was a fan of
    TI OMAPs, but this new dual-core chip seems quite snappy. More on the
    Bionic at my blog: http://wp.me/p1BlyQ-57.

    • I’ve been a fan of the OMAP since I got my original droid.  Few mobile processors have shown the headroom capabilities that the lil OMAP in this thing has.  Not saying other processors are bad, just stating evidence of how strong this lil monster has been.  I’m hoping the dual core OMAPs have the same potential.

      Why? It’s clock-for-clock faster than the Snapdragons, the Tegra’s and the Sammy Exynos chips. (and it’s the only sop NetFlix approved:D)

    Is it just me, or is that not very impressive? It doesn’t look any faster than the Droid X running CyanogenMod. Although, when (if?) CM gets ported to the Bionic it should be quite an improvement. BTW…very boring video. Perhaps I’m not easily amused, but four minutes of live wallpapers and Blur bugs don’t really do it for me.

    Hate to say it since I’ve been looking forward to an upgrade, but count me out of buying anything else from this company 🙁
