What You Need To Know
The Droid Bionic 4G LTE weighs just 5.6 ounces but somehow feels heavier.
The capacitive function buttons are a nice tuoch.
The back of the Droid Bionic has a nice rubbery feel for grip, but there's something about this phone that just felt a little too bulky.
The Bionic has a 4.3" QHD display with a great resolution.
Colors were vibrant and the detail was really there.
The touch screen was very responsive, including scrolling up and down compared to previous Droids.
Thanks to the screen size, apps and web browsing never felt too crowded.
The 8 megapixel camera also shoots 1080p video.
Still images looked pretty good with accurate colors but there was some picture noise.
Honestly, we were expecting a bit better out of the camera.
The video looked okay and recording had a little problem with autofocusing in the middle of shots.
The footage looked a bit choppy when shooting moving objects.
The Droid Bionic has a dual core processor and the 4G LTE network, making it blazing fast during daily use.
Opening and running apps was fast and we experienced no crashing over the week of testing.
