    You might recall, in our review of the Motorola Droid Bionic we had to ding it half-a-star due to the pops and high-pitched whining present in its audio. Sometimes the audio problems were there, sometimes they weren't. It was odd and annoying. We weren't alone. Many, many others we experiencing the same problem -- and we let Motorola know. Some of us were told they'd address the problem in a future OTA update. Speaking of updates, Motorola says they've got one in testing that will include fixes for problems identified through "owner feedback" -- we have to hope it includes a resolution to ...

    If you're on Verizon and are considering a new smartphone, you're undoubtedly weighing the pros and cons of the new iPhone 4S and Motorola Droid Bionic. While the iPhone 4S brings a higher resolution display, high-end camera optics, Siri, and a dual-core CPU, the Droid Bionic can utilize 4G LTE to get the fastest internet possible and also has high-end camera optics and a dual-core CPU. The Droid Bionic also comes with a significantly larger 4.3" display compared to the 3.5" screen on the iPhone 4S, but the trade off is an increase in weight and size. In this video we compare ...

    The newly launched Motorola Droid Bionic which we recently reviewed is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the manufacturer has made the source code freely available online. If you feel like taking a closer look at the bits Motorola included in the OS, head over to the source link and grab your copy. Developers might not be able to unlock the bootloader but could extract or add cookies to the code or even make a stable overclocked ROM for all you hardcore tweakers out there!

    Ice Cream Sandwich is the next "big thing" in Android. We've been told that it combines all the advancements made in the Tablet and TV versions of Android (which is code named "Honeycomb") and brings all three back into one unified operating system, including the next iteration that will run on Android-powered smartphones. Motorola was the launch partner for Android-powered tablets, which run the Honeycomb version of the operating system. Being a "launch partner" has some pretty big perks. You get to work closely with Google and you get your hands on the code before everyone else. When ...

    In this face-off video we put the acclaimed Galaxy S 2 up against the best Verizon phone available at the moment, the Motorola Droid Bionic which operates with LTE. In terms of specs, the Galaxy S 2 has a higher-clocking processor, but the Droid Bionic has a higher resolution display. Beyond these two differences, pretty much everything else is the same, save for the built-in HDMI port on the Droid Bionic. In terms of hardware, the Droid Bionic is thicker and more heavy than the Galaxy S 2, but it feels a bit more sturdy in hand. Take a look at the comparison video where we cover gaming ...

    The Droid Bionic is the latest in high-end smartphones from Motorola for the Verizon network. In this in-depth, detailed video we'll look at all the built-in apps, the Bionic's UI, and run some benchmarks to see just how well this powerhouse of a phone performs. Benchmarks We start the video off with benchmarks: running Linpack Pro, Quadrant, and Smartbench 2011. We found that the Droid Bionic did not perform nearly as well as one would expect. This isn't a problem with the phone, rather, it's a problem with the benchmark utilities. Specifically, the current generation of benchmarks simply ...

    If you are into purchasing a Verizon-phone made by Motorola, Amazon is the place to go as they've got some great deals on the Motorola Droid Bionic and the Motorola Droid X2. Don't forget that if you get a Verizon-phone from Amazon, between September 16 and 11:59 p.m. PDT September 26, 2011, you'll also receive a $50 Amazon.com Gift Card code. Couple that with the $149.99 price tag on the Droid Bionic and the $0.01 on the Droid X2, you've got yourself a pretty good deal. Both prices mentioned above are valid with a two-year contract.

    Owners of the Droid Bionic are reporting widespread problems with the phone's audio output, resulting in a high-pitched squeal that is annoying many to no end. The problem is most noticeable when listening to audio with headphones. You won't hear anything when nothing's playing, but if you wait for a quiet portion (though with the phone still outputting audio), you may hear the distinctive whine for a few seconds. There as many theories for its presence as there are work-arounds to avoid it. One likely theory, though unfortunately one that doesn't sound fixable via software update, is that ...

    Motorola announced the Droid Bionic two weeks ago and the phone is available for purchase since September 8. We're currently reviewing the device (we've already got the unboxing and the hardware tour) which seems to be already booting CyanogenMod 7. Looking at the video below you'll see CyanogenMod 7 boot without a drop of sweat on the Droid Bionic. Work is in progress and there are many bugs plus plenty of things not working yet (like radio, charging, battery, graphics are a bit off, camera, audio and so on). On the bright side, touchscreen, accelerometer and adb are working and with the ...

    After a long, troubled road to release, Motorola's Droid Bionic is finally upon us. As Verizon subscribers begin to pick up the smartphone, we're hearing about some users running into problems with the Bionic's radio, and other users who have taken to tinkering with the phone and nearly have an alternate recovery ready to go. An issue with the Bionic's radio has been noticed by some users, where a situation presents itself in which the handset struggles to maintain a 4G connection, instead vacillating between 4G and 3G options, when it can even find a signal at all. All that work to get a ...

    The latest and greatest from Motorola and Verizon is the Droid Bionic. With its wedge-shaped chassis encasing some very high-end hardware, this is the smartphone the others are all envious of. In this video we'll take a look at the insides of this phone, and the exterior hardware. The first thing you'll notice about the Motorola Droid Bionic is that the battery cover isn't attached right out of the box. In fact, the panel itself is stored in its own zippered bag, separate from the phone. The battery also is not installed, nor is the LTE SIM card. Installing the LTE SIM is a little tricky, ...

    The latest and greatest from Motorola and Verizon is the Droid Bionic. With its wedge-shaped chassis encasing some very high-end hardware, this is the smartphone the others are all envious of. In this video we'll look around the box, inspect it's contents, and take a first look at the phone itself. The box itself is wrapped in a sleeve, inside is the box which has remarkably little information and very simple, clean branding. The top of the box is lifted off, under which you'll find the phone with an informative screen protector in place. This smartphone has the battery cover off and ...

    The Motorola Droid Bionic, available through Verizon Wireless, has an amazing 8MP camera (6MP in widescreen mode) that doubles as a 1080p HD video recorder. In this video I walk you through some close-ups, some quick motion, high-contrast, and distance shots to show you just how well this smartphone's camera performs. It should be noted that this video has not been edited in any way, it's as raw as we can get it so you can see exactly what the video looks like. What do you think? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below.
