    You've got to be kidding me. This is the single most annoying problem that I have with my D1 (except with the D1, the delays can be 30 seconds or more and happen very often). I can't believe that newer phones like the D3 still have a similar problem. Come on Google, can't you design a better way to cache the application icons?

    I'd really like to hear about the Droid Bionic's laptop dock. They say that it runs the full Firefox, but I would also like to know if it can run other apps. If the laptop dock could run my Remote Desktop app, that would be excellent!

    Probably the same as the Atrix dock which can do anything the phone can do on the laptop dock.

    This is from another person. I can't believe how many people got early access to the Bionic! From the looks of the screen, the battery icon is actually STRAIT! :D

    Here's his story.

    And his video.

    How's the camera quality?

    Does it have the homescreen bug?

    Does it have redraw or lag problems like the D3?

    Does it have a notification light?

    How is it outside?

    This is everything as of when this post was made.

    First, thanks for the videos. The phone looks nice. Confirms my interest for sure.

    How much do the benchmarks he ran correlate with real world use? The SGSII blew it away, more than I would have expected.

    The pentile issue is there on the extreme close up, but it's hard to tell if it's better at normal viewing distance.

    Now I'm waiting on people having these long enough to report on the battery life. :)

    The Bionic runs at a higher resolution then the GSII so its going to benchmark lower.

    So a higher resolution dilutes the benchmarks scores in a way?

    Yep. Plus, the Exynos is .2GHz higher. Imagine how the OMAP4 will preform when it's overclocked.

    I didn't bother to post the Quadrant benchmarks, cause Quadrant sucks. It doesn't test all of the cores, so that's useless.

    CF-Bench is the best.

    I mean look at benchmark scores of the iPhone 4 vs. the iPhone 3GS. You would think the 3GS was the better phone. That screen res plays a part in some benchmarks.

    And like it was mentioned....Quadrant is unreliable now. Maybe the Pro version that breaks down the individual parts is better. Even then....Quadrant can be manipulated. Alot of us learned last year that file and file system edits, mods, hacks can get you some inflated scores on Quadrant.

    A better judge is comparing the Bionic to another dual core phone with the same screen res like the Atrix, Photon, Droid X2, Droid 3, EVO 3D, Sensation. And probably phones with 1GB ram to make it even more even.

    Or just use a better benchmark tool than Quadrant...lol

    Camera quality looks very good.

    So is the 1 ghz dualcore omap processor on the Bionic better than the 1.2 tegra dualcore?

    Can you guys find out about sound and speakerphone quality? Also, does bluetooth work well?

  23. tehsusenoh

    tehsusenoh Android Expert

    I'd say yes. But maybe I'm just saying that because I don't like the Tegra 2 outside of tablets.

    OMAP is the king.

    It's a shame that the Bionic didn't get the 4460 or 4470. Would have blown away every other phone on the market if it had it.
