Review: Motorola Droid Bionic

Form Basics Dock Extras Video Wrap-Up Comments  2  

The Droid Bionic is massive phone. Not only is the phone itself big, but the opportunity it presents is large, too. Motorola and Verizon are attempting - with the insane number of accessories and docks - to position the Droid Bionic as a potential laptop replacement device for the weary traveller. It's true, with the right mix of accessories, you can probably sneak away for a long weekend (or short business trip) without the need for a laptop, but there are plenty of trade-offs (size/expense of the laptop dock, limitations of Webtop mode, etc.)

The phone itself is mostly great. Network, voice call, and battery performance are the best of Verizon's LTE devices. The messaging features are robust, as are the music and video consumption apps. The biggest failing of the Droid Bionic is the camera, which is too slow and leads to mixed results. Other than the camera, the Bionic's dual-core processor means plenty of horsepower to accomplish all that you might wish to with the phone.

Would I recommend the Droid Bionic? Sure, to anyone but a dedicated shutterbug, it is the new King of the Hill at Verizon Wireless. It covers all the basics, and then some. Add in all the possible use cases created by the series of docks, and the Bionic can even so go far as to replace your entertainment center and laptop.

It may be pricey at $299, but the best of the best is never cheap.
