Motorola Droid Bionic New Speeds Impress: Plus No Battery Worries

The Motorola Droid Bionic is one of the smartphones that have been most hotly-anticipated and it has been a long wait for many. As we draw nearer to a release we’re still hearing more that makes us even more enthusiastic about this Android smartphone coming to Verizon. Today it seems a tester who has had their hands on the Bionic has conducted some new speed tests and the results were pretty impressive. Along with that it seems there will be no need for any worries about the battery performance on the Droid Bionic.

Just in the last few days we’ve had new leaked photos of the Bionic, received FCC news confirming the display size of 4.3-inches and then yesterday our Tim Ollason gave us news about the large battery that had been revealed. Todays news on notable speeds comes to us from Kevin Krause over on Phandroid who has been supplied with yet another new image, this time of the Bionic running an app from SpeedTest.net, which seems to show significant download and upload speeds. The image was sourced from YodaDroid over on Android Forums. Although it’s not clear whether the speed results come from WiFi or the 4G LTE radio on the Bionic, either way it’s looking pretty nifty.

What’s more it seems that big battery that we told you about earlier gives a whopping performance. Until now there have been some serious concerns about 4G LTE handsets and battery life but its reported that the Droid Bionic, with moderate use, will see a battery life of over 15 hours. That should certainly assuage those who are eager for the Bionic but still concerned about battery performance. Bear in mind the Bionic will also have a dual-core processor whereas the HTC Thunderbolt 4G LTE handset for Verizon, which only had a single-core processor, disappointed many with its poor battery life.

Meanwhile Kellex over on Droid-Life also reports on this latest news about the Bionic and points out that news today about an LTE Galaxy S II will now be giving many consumers a headache trying to choose their next smartphone. We also told about a Sprint 4G variant of the Galaxy S II and earlier today spoke how carriers this time around fighting for customers of the next iPhone means healthy competition and benefits for consumers, so the choices continue to expand.

What are your thoughts on this latest news about speeds and battery life on the Droid Bionic? Has this confirmed that this will be your next choice of smartphone or maybe you’re tempted by the Galaxy II or iPhone 5? Let us know with your comments.
