Default Motorola Droid Bionic! New Droid Smartphone!

Here is a photo of the Bionic that I took with my Droid X before I switched the memory card...





Here is a photo of my Droid X1 that I took with my Bionic.




There are a ton of new features than I am used to since the last phone. If I ignore a call a screen pops up and you can select from ac couple pre texted options to send out to the person that you just ignores the call from. Like "I will call you back in a couple minutes". Kinda nifty if you ask me..

When I start my day at 6am and going to bed at 12a I still have 40-50% Batt life left... My old phone would have been dead...

I still have my options for HDMI out... But now I can record videos and take photos in 1080p.

I like it a lot.

Cool... Just found out my Mother in law got a Bionic on the 8th too.

She says she is so much happier over that stupid iphone... Even though part of that frustration was a user issue. I know what she means.


She likes how much easier the Bionic is to use and how everything works like it should in comparison to the charge of which she gave to her oldest son.

Yeah I have had a 3GS. I liked android better because it is more customizable. Most of the apps that I get on Android are free and half of those free apps you have to pay to get on the iphone.
But they are apps that I need. I loved my X and I rooted it. It was a really good running phone... My wife uses it now.

I was about a inch away from getting a iPhone 4 at one point but the reviews on the construction of the phone bothered me. There is a glass back and the reviews say that it can crack in the cup holder of your car.


I am a landscaper and am pretty ruff on phones... I am on my 3rd Moto Android phone and they are still good to go...

iPhone still has there programs that still lock up. I feel like Android has passed them by and will only get better from here.

Good info. I'm still torn between an android and iphone. I've been offered a free iphone 3G to try out. Might give it a shot for a month and then go from there......

I sure can use some free stuff right now. I'll finally be able to try the bluetooth in my truck and also the OnStar app. I wish the Nox had bluetooth.....

Nope, it sure doesn't. Has all the other extras, just not that one.

Nope, no onstar. We might need to re-activate it, though, cuz I finally got my Iphone!

How did I ever survive without a smartphone???
