Make no mistake, there’s plenty to like about the DROID BIONIC. The combination of a dual-core processor and LTE adds up to a phone that’s fast in both performance and data access, while the solid display and HDMI connectivity mean it’s a good choice for multimedia playback. On the flip side, however, mediocre battery life and underwhelming stills performance from the camera take off some of the shine. quote

Motorola's Droid Bionic is the first LTE device with a dual-core processor. It's a great phone, but not quite top-shelf material.

The Motorola Droid Bionic has a nice slim and sleek design, with a 4.3-inch qHD display and the double whammy of a dual-core processor and Verizon 4G LTE support." However, "The Motorola Droid Bionic is saddled with Motorola's custom UI, which might not be for everyone.

The Droid Bionic is definitely the fastest 4G LTE phone yet, and it's our new top smartphone pick for Verizon Wireless. The $299 price is steep, but you get dual-core power and blazing data speeds, plus a bevy of useful apps. We also like the qHD screen and loud speakers.

The build quality is excellent, the software is clean and intuitive, and the addition of ZumoCast is terrific. The display, however, is a big disappointment. The overall speed of the Droid Bionic is almost enough to make up for that shortcoming, but the high price makes the phone a tough sell.

I was really excited to get a 4G dual core phone. Unfortunately it has the Motoblur UI. I had the first Motorola droid and the interface was okay but after having the HTC Incredible for a year and going to the new version of Motoblur I hate it. From auto correct on the keyboard turned off by...

The Verizon LTE data network has been amazing. That speed coupled with the dual core CPU and full gig of RAM make this device and absolute pleasure to use (even despite moto & vzw trying their best to overload it with customizations and bloatware) . Coming from an aged first generation...

People, it's 2013, DON'T BUY THE BIONICS UNLESS TERRORISTS HOLDS A GUN TO YOUR HEAD TO MAKE YOU SIGN CONTRACT FOR THE PHONE. This phone only had the issue of it eating batteries in the beginning, however, after the various Google updates and just attrition through time this device now randomly...

As far as android devices go, this is the best phone I've used. The keyboard accessory is non-responsive and sluggish, but the phone itself is lighting fast when not bogged down by android itself. Compare it to the smooth seamlessness of an iPhone and you'll see the difference immediately. I...

This phone was great for the first 6 months and then was complete garbage for the next 1+ years. It just runs slow and can barely load pages most of the time. It just freezes so much it makes it hard to use
