Motorola and Verizon Wireless showed off the first smartphone Droid Bionic at CES 2011. Now, almost nine months later, this high-speed smartphone finally hit the market. It was the first phone to run on Verizon’s 4G network, but it just might be best.
Verizon says taht Motorola Droid Bionic is the thinnest 4G phone, measuring just 0.43 inches thick. It’s a bit bulky side, though, as Bionic Droid stands 5 cm tall by 2.6 inches wide. That’s just about the same size as the Motorola Sprint 4G photon, and is big enough to make a very small aspect iPhone 4 in comparison. As 4G Photon, weighs 5.6 oz Bionic Droid.
While they are the same size, Bionic Droid and 4G Photon are significantly different in shape. If the Photon 4G sports an angular look, Bionic Droid is a more traditional rectangular phone. That’s not a bad thing, however: his face shining glass, slightly curved edges and soft-touch back gray, Bionic Droid is beautiful.
The front screen of the phone is dominated by its 4.3-inch qHD, which has a resolution of 960 by 540 pixels. Screen is certainly large and very bright – is equipped with a coating that makes it easier to see outdoors – text and images looked beautiful clear. But even with high resolution, this screen can not compare with the iPhone Display retina. When viewed side by side, text and images on the Droid Bionic slightly pixilated and grainy were compared with their looks good on display iPhone 4.
Below the display, Droid Bionic has four touch sensitive buttons: menu, home, back, and search. Like the touch screen itself, the buttons are nicely responsive – and they are more attractive than physical buttons that some Android phones such as Samsung Conquer 4G sport.
Bionic Droid includes some standard fare media, such as a basic media player, access to Amazon MP3 downloads, and a YouTube application. You also NFL Mobile App, which allows you to watch live video, access fantasy teams, and more. In addition, phone support DLNA so you can connect to compatible devices such as set-top box.
What’s even more impressive, however, is included in the phone application ZumoCast. It provides remote access to files stored on your PC. When you run the application on your phone and PC at the same time, you can access content wirelessly from your desktop, including documents, photos, videos, music and playlists right on your phone. It is an incredibly convenient way to share content between devices.
