Motorola Droid Bionic Shows Off Blistering Data Speeds

By  |  37 Comments

We know the Motorola Droid Bionic is going to be fast. After all, it’s going to be the first dual-core smartphone running on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. And just in case you needed some more proof, another photo of the Droid Bionic has surfaced today showing off some of the fastest data speeds that I’ve ever seen attained on Big Red’s network.

No, there isn’t drool coming out of my mouth just yet, I live in San Francisco and service is still spotty at best, but I am extremely excited and those of you looking forward to this phone should be as well. Well, at least those of you who live in an area that is covered by Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

As for the device itself, we still don’t have an official release date but we do know that Motorola is working to ensure the Droid Bionic is going to meet the expectations of customers. I think battery life is the number one thing and from the sound of things, they have done a great job.

There’s also the possibility that Motorola’s new found partnership with Google will work wonders for the Droid Bionic’s future.I think the Droid Bionic we’ve heard about for months now will be the same Droid Bionic at launch but there could be some awesome things coming up just around the bend.

This phone is shaping up to be awesome folks and I hope you’re at least considering it.

    If Motorola delays the launch again and the Bionic is available on in early, early September the phone might as well be shelved. At this point I think everyone’s patients is wearing thin.

      Sounds like the SG2 will be dropping not too long from now either. As long as its within a month or so from the bionic im going to wait and see the SG2. Why not…at this point.

        I  paid $23.88 for an i Pad 2 32-GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic 

        Lumiix GF 1 Camera that we got for $ 38.41 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I 

        will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I 

        also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $ 635 which only cost me $ 61.74 to 

        buy. Here is the website we use to get it al from,

      I think people will wait. They keep putting it off month by month, so that just make people say what’s one more month i’ve waited this long

      You’re assuming the vast majority of the population even follows Droid releases. The people giving an opinion one way or another are a niche group. Until a release date is announced and it receives mainstream buzz, virtually no one will care.

      Dude, I agree more…but seriously, can you please learn how to spell?  It’s PATIENCE…not patients….and you think you can handle a smart phone?

        oh big deal, you try typing real quick between meetings. No everyone can sit around doing nothing all day. Spelling hasn’t counted since middle school.

    I will wait, I have had several Moto phones from the StarTac to the little grey looking startac to the razor and many, many nextel direct connect phone, then fast foward to the future where I tried windows mobile palm 700wx and 750wx and the samsung i760 and the htc crap handheld windows mobile non-touch screen phone and they all caused me issues. now in the most recent past I’ve went from an Orginal Droid to the Droidx now a Droid x2 and I will wait for the Bionic to surface and rear it’s massive head.

    I m like everyone else….. this phone wont be a day 1 buy for me now. Gonna wait a few weeks and see whats around the corner…..might as well at this point.

    Why wouldnt you wait?  go get another phone and be dissapointed and mad because you couldnt wait a couple of months “delayed” (soley off rumor dates).  But one poster makes a good point if we’ve waited this long might as well wait to see if the GS2 can outperform.

    I for one can wait till the rumored Sept 8th date

    I’m waiting to see what comes out in Sepetember and October and then make a decision.  The HTC Vigor sounds like a winner to me.

    I think this is going to be a very stable phone that will not crash often. To me this phone is taking a apple aproach in that they  are trying to cover every base well in regards to battery life the use interface and twaeks with the os. The other thing is the sprint proton is close to the bionic in specs but this one will have more polish.

    Does dual core really help with the 4G speed?

      nope

      • Coolioman

        That’s what I was trying to tell my friend! It has nothing to do with connection or data speed, just processing power.

        • Corymcnutt

          08/16/2011 at 7:20 pm

          “Just” processing power; thats very important!  The LTE speed is fast enough.

    • Eric Principato

      I doubt it’s the dual core that’s helping with the raw speed. It would certainly help stabilize high speed media streams though. 

    • That19guy

      08/16/2011 at 10:21 pm

      I think in a way yes. In the way that it will help keep up with the processing of the data coming in. Say if its a slower processor ( or single core) then the 4g speeds wont look that impressive maybe the phone wont keep up.. i think

      • cletus jones

        08/17/2011 at 3:26 am

        All correct. The 4g speeds will get the porn TO the phone in a snap, how fast the pics actually load on the page is all on the processor. Dual core is more efficient.

    I refuse to get excited over the idea that “better battery life” justifies a 9 month delay.  That’s laughable.  Again, it has to come with 720p, Tegra3, a Laptop Dock or something similar to make it worth the wait.  (and for the record, I’ll never believe that the rumored TI OMAP processor is as good as the Tegra.  nVidia has been pushing the envelope on processor’s for over 10 years.  TI has been….making PCMCIA card readers?)

    What is bionic about the Droid Bionic? I was hoping it would have a fingerprint scanner like the Motorola Atrix, but I haven’t found one article that says that it does. So again I ask, “What is bionic about the Droid Bionic?

    I learned my lesson… I went and got Droid Charge by Samsung and 2 days later called verizon for a return kit. Droid X has always been totally reliable. I use well over 3000 Min a month and use my phone constantly all day. I am an installer for Directv so i need my GPS, calling, bluetooth, and most important my 3G to work allways. X never failed Charge was constantly dropping service and i would have to start over when closing work orders. And i could go almost a whole day without a charge on my motorola and the Samsung needed charged every 3 Hrs with my usage. I will never stray away from Motorolas Droids again!!!!!
