Droid Bionic vs Atrix 4G vs Droid Charge: 3 Of The Best

With the smartphone market hotting up on a monthly occurrence, its no doubt that for many of you, decisions are getting somewhat difficult with what phone to choose. Of course the iPhone 4/5 is and will no doubt be a popular choice for a large percentage of you, along with HTC’s Thunderbolt running on 4G LTE which was officially launched last week. But 3 handsets that are definitely worth a look and are in the running are the Motorola Droid Bionic, Motorola Atrix 4G and the Samsung Droid Charge (formerly known as the Stealth).

We have put together all 3 with a roundup of specs and possible release dates for 2 of them, to hopefully make that decision a little easier for you, and along the way we will link to other posts here at OSM. Firstly starting off with the Motorola Droid Bionic which since the start of this year has been a much talked about device. The handset which will be running on Verizon’s speedy 4G LTE network will include a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch screen with high resolution qHD which can be compared to Apple’s popular iPhone Retina display. Also included are 2 cameras 0.3MP front and 8MP rear, HD video recording along with 512MB of RAM, and one other feature that will be included will be that of the Webtop app which when used with a laptop dock, will give PC function-like features. Initially the phone will be launched with Android 2.2 but will eventually be upgraded to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. With this in mind examiner.com has reported that rumor has it the Bionic‘s release date will be on or around the 21st April.

This brings us nicely onto yet another Motorola offering, that of the Atrix 4G. Initially launched on AT&T last month, there is news that Sprint will be joining the carrier competition with a CDMA version. In terms of specifications the handset includes yet another 1GHz dual-core processor, that of Tegra-2, 4-inch capacitive touchscreen display, again Webtop app, 5MP rear facing camera with LED flash, 1024MB of RAM as well as a pretty interesting feature of the keyboard dock which can be purchased as an optional extra. When the handset is positioned into the dock, it automatically becomes a fully working keyboard making it into a 11.6-inch display. Presently the phone is available to purchase but keep an eye out for an announcement from Sprint who will also support WiMAX 4G.

And lastly the Samsung Droid Charge or Stealth as it was known up until later on today. Again classed as a big Android 2.2 smartphone contender, the device will run on 4G LTE the first of Samsung’s series of phones to run on this, along with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor. Other features include a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1.3MP front facing camera and 8MP rear, 8GB of internal memory, the only downside to this phone has got to be the lack of dual-core processor which many customers seem to be steering towards. Just today we gave you news on the handset being available to pre-order at retailer Costco, from March 24th with an expected release of April 7th.

Tell us your thoughts. Have you got one of these 3 in mind, if so what’s tempted you into your decision? Let us know.

    Love the Idea of a dual core proccesor, wish Samsung would have put one in the Charge (Stealth). For a verizon customer like myself I'd go with the Motorola Bionic, although I do beleive the Motorola Atrix is a better phone. For me it will be between the Stealth and the Bionic, I think the fact that the Bionic has that Tegra dual core processor in it will give it the nod. As of now I am just waiting to see them both

    My Droid X has been an incredible device. Based on my X experience, it's a not contest. It will have to be the Bionic until the Moto Targa is released later on this year with quad core. Then I will switch to the Targa. I hate giving up the incredible form factor of the X. But the higher screen resolution and dual core processor are just to hard to resist. However, I still think the X is one of the best phones on the market. I can't think of anything other than the Bionic I would trade it for (yes including the iPhone you apple fan boys). The combination very nice large screen and good battery life have been great for me.

    Put the best of all of them into one phone. Better yet, make the Droid Bionic with increased RAM and rootable and you'd have a perfect phone. Not too thrilled with the 512 mb of RAM. Very low. Other than that, a perfect phone
