Motorola Bionic (Verizon)
The Bionic launched earlier this month at Verizon for $299 plus a two-year contract. Our review found the Bionic to be more of a Droid X upgrade than a smashing new model to carry Motorola to greatness.
That said, the dual-core processor combined with Verizon's 4G LTE network made for the fastest phone we've ever tested.
The Bionic is not the same phone introduced in Las Vegas in January. That model was more like the AT&T Atrix and powered by Nvidia's Tegra 2 processor. Somewhere along the way Motorola killed the original and went with a more Droid X type design.And while 4G LTE phones have been big electricity hogs as with the HTC Thunderbolt, Motorola made this less of an issue by putting a much bigger battery in the Bionic. The Bionic might not be the phone Motorola originally had in mind, but it is one of the Android elite available now.
