The highly anticipated Droid Bionic has finally landed in the hands of the public and I personally don’t think they will be disappointed. I was lucky enough to have a roommate that decided to go and grab the newly bit of awesomeness that is android. Then I stole it from him and whipped up a nice review video below.

Now at first glance, it’s a pretty sleek and sexy phone. It’s light, it holds nicely in the hand, and basically just looks like a shinier Droid X. Now with that, it’s definitely a big step up from the Droid X and Droid X2. With the 1 GHz dual core processor, the phone just flies. I mean it literally flies. I was scrolling through the home screens and the thing grew wings and flew out of my hands! Ok I over embellish, but seriously, the smoothness and quickness is very nice. The 3D transitions between screens and app drawer is a nice touch, which I think your basic android phone user will love. Going through apps and web browsing, there is really no lag at all, so that mixed with the 4G LTE  you’re in for a fast paced user experience. Basically the phone is on crack!

I’m not the biggest fan of the MotoBlur UI, and even after playing with the new version I’m still not a big fan of it. Don’t get me wrong, they have made some great improvements to it, it’s just not my brand of whiskey. The 3D interface really pops. The social stream has a new look to it as well as a contacts widget that makes your phone look like it has a stack of pictures stuck inside it. The 8 MP camera is something that is exciting people, but might be a little disappointed by it. Some of the pictures I took kinda came out a little grainy so a little bit of a let down but not a total disappointment. Speaking of disappointments, what is up Motorola??? Downgrading the screen resolution? Are you nuts? Yes they have downgraded the screen resolution I guess to help with battery life and help with the smoothness of the phone. It’s not that bad of a flaw, but if you do look closely at the screen you see the little pixels. Comparing it to the Droid X’s screen, its pretty noticeable. Now don’t moan and groan just yet, the phone still has its greatness, and just watch my video review. I think you will agree with me. Also I think you’ll agree that my hair looks terrible.

So, do I recommend the Droid Bionic? Yeah I do. I really think this phone is a big step into the dual processor phones and will take on the iPhone 5 in hand to hand smartphone combat, coming out with barely a scratch. It’s only a matter of time before this devices are going to take over the world, so pick your phone your going to be a slave to!

    God damn you’re fucking annoying. That is the last time I watch any of your videos.

    Seriously man, Can you do like a grown up version of this video ? I am sorry to say but the showcase here really is the phone and not YOU.

    That was the stupidest video I’ve ever seen. I couldn’t even finish it. I can’t believe that shit was allowed to be posted. You make me not want that phone at all. If I were Motorola I’d be pissed off and you would be getting a cease and desist letter that prevents you from ever publicly reviewing another one of my products again This letter would be hand delivered so after you finish reading it you can get the shit beat out of you. Fuck off loser.

    Well this is a typical California person’s review al la gamercore over at phandroid; they are just very different people. Its not a bad video or review so don’t bash. All in all sorta funny and interesting. I kinda want one but think I will wait on the Droid Prime.
