The folks at PhoneArena got their lucky hands on the Droid Bionic prior to launch at treated us to some synthetic benchmarks of the device. Most of the results aren't mind-blowing, but are solid, putting the phone on par with the Droid 3. This isn't surprising because the primary guts of the two devices are very similar. Both use the same TI OMAP 1GHz Dual-core processor, but the Bionic comes in with 1GB Ram instead of the Droid 3's 512MB. This won't make much of a difference in some of the benchmarks, but we should see an improvement in performance in many apps and games on the Bionic. Here are the benchmark scores:
- Quadrant = between 2,098 and 2,389
- AnTutu benchmark app = 4,993 (performance was much better here, and closer to the LG Optimus 2x and SGS2, which is more indicative of the increased RAM)
- Ookala’s Speed Test app = 8.5Mbit/s and 2.0Mbits/s (during the morning when the LTE network was busiest) & 22Mbits/s download and 10.54Mbits/s upload (later in the day with less network saturation)
Those afternoon network speeds were very impressive! The overall impression of the phone's performance that was given was, "...the real life operation of the handset appears to be tight and responsive thus far."
It looks like the phone will be a solid and powerful addition to the Droid lineup.
