Hands On With The Bionic
This from someone on Another Forum . His Name is Joe the Insider and he has the Bionic. This what he has to say so far:
This is all he has shared so far.
Just got the launch kit today and was able to play with it. I will be doing more playing around later. Initial thoughts. The phone is extremely light and is actually pretty thin. The battery is 1730 mah and is pretty big. The screen is contoured on the edges and it comes with a 16gb microsd card. Power button is in a awkward spot though. Its on the left shoulder of the phone. Its a pretty big phone as well, its along the lines of the charge. I will report back soon on the screen. Start up is ridiculously fast, sound is surprisingly good. The back is plastic like the d3. The camera problem that was widely talked about this the d3 is a NON factor. It boots up right away with no lag. The pentile screen looks a little different, but to be honest I love the pentile screen. More on performance in a bit.Im still waiting for my manager to activate it, then I can do some tests. The glass on the screen is very nice, its hard to explain, but it compliments the actually screen. I want to stress that there is NO redraw. If your not familar with what that is, the d3 has an issue where after closing a app that's pretty heavy on ram or it would have to load all apps and widgets on the screen and it would take about 5 secs before it finished and was extremely annoying. As for the pentile.screen, I am noticing a better looking screen than the d3 and dx. The dark chrome is nice around the screen. Its actually a little lighter than the d3 when it comes to the color of the chrome.
Unfortunately I don't live in a 4g area yet, so this all based around 3g service. I will start running benchmarks and what not once i get it back.
You can switch from evdo/lte or just evdo. So yes you can turn off 4g.
Here quadrant scores. Any other ones you guys want me to try.
Continued from Earlier Post..
The bionic is thinner than the d3 and also lighter. As for the docks, as far as I know you don't need to get any plans with the docks. Their pretty much sold as an accessory. As for pricing, I was told $299 but don't hold me to that yet.
Here is more scores, I apologize for the quality. These were taken from my d3's camera.
The phone does have a LED light like almost all Motorola phones and yes, the vehicle dock charges the phone.
How's the camera quality?
Does it have the home screen bug?
Does it have redraw or lag problems like the D3?
Does it have a notification light?
How is it outside?
| Works great in sunlight. Even with polarized sunglasses you see great in portrait, not great in landscape, but you can still see it.
This is everything as of when this post was made.
