Pros: Power, speed and connectivity options are damn near unrivaled in the mobile space. Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread is current, and well-skinned. HDMI, expandable microSD, DLNA, oh my!
Cons: Unless you’re a baller, dropping this much coin on the Bionic and its accessories might leave you eating ramen noodles for a month. Battery life suuuuuucks. Peripherals don’t live up to their potential.
Conclusion: No doubt, the Droid Bionic by Motorola is Verizon's fastest phone with its dual core processor and LTE 4G combo. Despite 9 months of marketing and excitement, it's not a world-changing phone, but we put it at the top of Verizon's lineup of Android smartphones.
Pros: Fast phone with 4G LTE, large display, lots of optional peripherals.
Cons: Will set you back $100 more than non-LTE Verizon smartphones, battery life so-so, some bugs.
Summary: 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.
Conclusion: The DROID Bionic is hands down Verizon’s best Android handset to date. And now that it’s become common knowledge that VZW is passing on the upcoming Galaxy S II, the Bionic looks like it’s your best bet for at least another month or two (or three).
Conclusion: Google is paying around $12.5 billion for Motorola – roughly the price of 2083 Bionic Men. It’s buying a company that has regained some, if not quite all, of its mobile mojo, cranking out macho, well-built Droid handsets with manic enthusiasm.
