The Motorola Droid Bionic is a 4G LTE and a dual-core processor all wrapped up into one small and ultra-thin package. The first phone of its kind, it is set to revolutionise the smartphone industry. Not only does the Droid Bionic look good, it can also be converted into a laptop.
The 4G is super-fast internet on call and, did I mention, it converts into a laptop? For business users there are a lot of useful business applications loaded onto the phone. It comes with a lot of built in storage – 38GB so this makes it a big boy. The call quality is excellent and, if you switch the LTE off, the battery life is fairly decent – about ten hours or so. The high speed 4G connection makes video talking a breeze and this phone integrates with Google Talk perfectly.
The screen quality is not so great. The clarity of pictures here is not the greatest. The screen is however very light and this makes it easy to read even in bright sunlight. With all features turned on the battery life is pretty bad but that is understandable – the applications will guzzle power. If you are going to use it a lot, expect it to give up around about halfway through the afternoon. The camera seemed to be okay but not the best on the market. The colours were not as saturated as they should have been. Clarity was pretty good. The video mode leaves a lot to be desired – the camera seems to battle to focus and find the correct speed. While the idea of a proper keyboard is great, it has been badly executed here – the keyboard is poorly made and difficult to use. The overall experience of the keyboard meant that it was easier to use the phone itself.
Should You Get It?
That really depends on what you are looking for from your phone. Call quality is great and the internet speed is hard to beat so for business people, it may be a worthwhile investment. It almost seems as though the phone was made with features geared towards business people. The screen and web keyboard really let this phone down though so it may be worthwhile to wait and see what the new IPhone 5 will offer.
