One More Big Ol’ DROID Bionic Gallery Before the Weekend

As you probably read from our post earlier, DROID Bionic shipments and launch kits are arriving in stores today.  Reports from a variety of our sources have had their hands on the device and so far, seem to be very pleased with it.  Most are impressed, even surprised, by how light it feels in hand.  The phone apparently boots up incredibly fast and has little home screen redraw, something that bothered us immensely on the DROID3.  The camera is also supposed to be greatly improved – maybe that means they fixed the blue issue from the D3?

The screen is definitely a PenTile matrix, but depending on who you talk to and which picture you look at, it’s tough to tell how bad it is.  This is one of those times again, where we recommend you actually get your hands on the phone and decide for yourself.  Some love the screens that Motorola has chosen to use this year, while others would rather chew on a bar of soap.

What we have for you today though, is one more big ol’ gallery of pictures of the phone to take us into the weekend.  The phone will be here next week, which means we can get ready for the HTC Vigor, hopefully start to hear a ton of news on the DROID Prime and whether or not it exists, and then get prepared for the holiday device push.  Everyone breath and have a fantastic weekend.

Comparisons to the DX, some side angles, and another look at that sweet launch kit below.   

Cheers jikhead!

  • My husband and i were quite thankful that Jordan could complete his web research by way of the precious recommendations he had through your web pages. It’s not at all simplistic to just always be giving out techniques that some other people could have been selling. So we see we’ve got the writer to give thanks to for that. The main explanations you’ve made, the easy website navigation, the relationships you will make it easier to create – it’s most exceptional, and it is helping our son and us imagine that that subject is amusing, which is pretty indispensable. Thank you for all the pieces!

    I only reason home screen redraw has been “fixed” is the 1g of ram vs 500mb on the droid 3. Otherwise this phone is chalk full of bloat just like every other motorola phone. Kill all the motoblur processes in the d3 and you will notice the home screen redraws to be magically fixed as well.

    Wow!! A black rectangular Android phone. Never seen one of those before. How exciting. This will crush ____ (fill in the blank). I just _____ my _____ I’m so friggin’ excited. Yawnnnnnnnn………

  • My spouse and i got happy when John could finish off his homework out of the precious recommendations he discovered while using the web pages. It is now and again perplexing to just possibly be offering tips and hints which a number of people may have been selling. And we all do understand we’ve got the website owner to be grateful to because of that. The type of illustrations you have made, the easy blog menu, the relationships your site assist to foster – it’s many great, and it is aiding our son and the family feel that the concept is fun, and that’s highly essential. Thank you for all the pieces!

  • Thank you a lot for providing individuals with an exceptionally memorable opportunity to read from this website. It is often very amazing and also packed with a great time for me personally and my office mates to visit your site at minimum three times every week to read through the new things you have. And lastly, I am usually pleased with the very good information you give. Certain two ideas in this post are clearly the most suitable we have had.

    How do you think the bionic will respond with emulators? (PSX, n64) and do you think it’ll have enough juice to tackle a PS2 emulator?

  • I do not really like the fact that the lock screen button is on the left side. Might get annoying after awhile.

    I just went into a Verizon and there was no other customers around so they let me mess around with the BIONIC.  It was pretty cool good weight to it not super light but also not heavy like the TB.  Screen was not horrible but definitely was not as nice as my wife’s DINC 2.  Blur is there I hate it… So is a bunch of other VZW Bloatware that is completely useless.  But its a matter of preference I want Vanilla Android and thats it, if the bootloader does not get unlocked and I’m not able to load any custom ROMS I sorry but I’ll be waiting for something else…  But if this thing does get cracked then I would have no problem making it my next phone. My $.02

    I just got to see the Bionic at my local verizon store (girlfriends cousin is the manager) and i was impressed with how light it was compared to my storm 2.  It would take two bionics to equal the weight of my BB Storm 2. It wasnt activated so I couldnt do much else. The screen on it didnt seem too big or that bright but it was on the setup screen.

  • Lol at the T-Mobile and Sprint sales reps coming here just to bash a VZW phone.  I honestly don’t know if they’re wrong yet, but do you guys get a commission for every post or something?

      so r u saying that this pos will beat the gs2 in some way? what an idiot

    How can the speedd of the device make up for what you are looking at 100% of the time you are using it.  Maybe the speed will make up for it because you do not have to look at the screen for so long since the CPU is faster?

    • See this is easy for me.  Only VZW reaches my location.  Thus I have one provider to chose from.  I guarantee 90% of phones will use this screen, the other 10% will have no battery life.

    If the Prime is really going to VZ then I would have to say wait.  I switched over to the Nexus S and it has been great.  It’s nice to get updates right away.  Yesterday Google released Android 2.3.6 and my phone was downloading the update minutes after the Google release 🙂

    Had to switch carriers but worth it…

    The Bionic is an ugly and clunky phone with some serious flaws. I bet moto never even fixed all those bugs and problems they had almost half a year ago. Already in the intro video there’s a bug- next thing you know that overheating app will turn on almost all the time because the phone is flawed. Its a shame big red pass on the GS2 in order to give this thing a chance. GS2 would have outdone this phone in every way possible a shame 🙁

      “I bet”???? Careful, when you assume. You make an “ass” out of yourself…

    I must say the Bionic eye is pretty bad ass, the box is keeper….
