    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:



    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.
    D3/bionic comparison.



    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.





    This is all he has shared so far.

    I just called my local stores... they never said they have it "in store" but they all had to check if there was a floor model. and one of the reps said that "its not for sale yet." I'll take that as, they have it but cant sell it.....

    Seems like a solid p-review.

    Look forward to some more video reviews cropping up.

    The X2's screen is much better than the X1's screen, by a long shot.

    Somehow I don't think you "played with it at a local store."

    I definitely beg to differ. I would never own the X2 and one of the big reasons (other than the music skipping issues), is the terrible screen. Brightness does not equal a good screen.
