Motorola Droid Bionic sighting shows 4G, battery
Motorola's repeatedly leaked Droid Bionic has surfaced again and given an early indication of how well it will run in the field. The dual-core phone has no trouble pushing 4G speeds and was shown getting 20Mbps down and 5.5Mbps up on Verizon's network. Most LTE phones can reach these speeds in ideal conditions, but AndroidForums' YodaDroid proved this was possible on the Bionic elsewhere.
The battery life may be the more impressive, he added. Average use of the Bionic is said to give it about 15 hours of use with the LTE turned on. Samsung's Droid Charge usually gets just several hours, while the HTC Thunderbolt lasts just four to five hours.
Little mystery exists about the new Bionic, with even Motorola itself providing most details of the 4.3-inch flagship. Verizon is expected to ship the phone earlier in September.
