MobileBurn have the Droid Bionic, and shared a full hands-on demo video of the device. Their first impressions of the device seem to indicate that it is very much like a Droid X2 except with LTE. They were very happy with the performance of the phone, but didn't share any benchmarks, yet. Here's a few quick quotes from some of their first impressions,
They also said,The phone's low weight is enabled, in part, by the lack of metal parts on the BIONIC, which is different from the Motorola DROID phones of the past. The BIONIC is put together well, but it doesn't feel quite as solid as say a DROID X2, and the plastic construction doesn't seem fitting a phone of its stature (or price tag).
From their initial impressions, the phone is a solid but not stellar device. They seemed impressed with its upload speeds, and they indicated that the 1735mAh battery should give you plenty of juice for normal use. They plan to do a full test and review of the device later. You can see the phone in action yourself in the video above, and part two is below.Performance-wise, the DROID BIONIC is no slouch, thanks to its dual-core, 1GHz OMAP processor and 1GB of RAM. The BIONIC is the first 4G LTE smartphone to launch with Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, and it runs Motorola's custom interface on top of that. The interface is very similar to what we saw on the DROID 3, though Motorola has updated and tuned it for better performance on the BIONIC. Motorola's new interface offers a lot of 3D flourishes and effects when panning through home screens, swiping through the app tray, and moving widgets around. These effects are purely for show, and don't really serve any practical purpose, but they didn't seem to slow the phone down at all - at least not so far.
