Motorola Atrix 4G vs Droid Bionic: Which has the edge?

Although there’s a lot of attention on the next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 5, expected in June or July, we cannot forget the upcoming Android phones as some of them look particularly impressive. Two of the most notable are both from Motorola but for different networks. They are both 4G handsets and both will have dual-core processors, but which one edges it?

The phones we’re thinking of are the Motorola Atrix 4G, which will be released on AT&T and the Motorola Droid Bionic to be carried by Verizon. We’ve already published many articles on these upcoming phones so hit the following links for more details. For the Atrix 4G some of our posts include first details from CES 2011, a look at the Atrix vs. the Verizon iPhone in a 3G vs. 4G dilemma, specs and video, and a promo video. We’ve also given you details of a release date in March with pre-orders available from February 13, and price details.

For the Droid Bionic we’ve had a look at the Bionic vs. the Verizon iPhone vs. the Thunderbolt, a brief appearance listed on Amazon that was then taken down and an estimated release date at the end of the second quarter. Specs-wise the Atrix 4G and Droid Bionic phones are very similar as we’ve already noted, but we’ve found an article that may help you make up your mind if you’re tempted to either of these imposing handsets.

Kevin Krause over on Phandroid provides a useful look at various 4G Android handsets, two of which are the Atrix 4G and the Droid Bionic. Krause notes that there’s a good reason why everybody seems to be talking about the Atrix 4G, which will be the first dual-core handset launched for AT&T. The Atrix will have a huge 1GB of RAM and with the useful extra of a laptop dock that means you’ll be able to use the phone just like a laptop. The Droid Bionic is the only upcoming 4G phone that bears the Droid branding but where it differs, compared to the Atrix, is that it only has 512MB of RAM and has no docking facility.

Out of all the 4G phones compared in Krause’s article (others include the Samsung Galaxy S 4G, the HTC Inspire 4G and the HTC Thunderbolt), the Atrix and Droid Bionic come out tops but Krause feels the Atrix just has the edge, mainly because of the docking facility. However of course, if you have no desire to use the phone in that way and would rather be with Verizon than AT&T then the wait for the Droid Bionic will soon come round. What are your thoughts on these two noteworthy handsets from Motorola? Are you intending to purchase either and if so which one and why? We’d be interested to hear from you so please send us your comments on this.

  1. Bionic says:

    The Bionic because Verizon is way better than att and the ram is ddr2

  2. CBTT says:

    seriously? the better handset to the poorer network?? dock and twice as much ram, the atix wins, send it to verizon! (where 4g is actually 4g, not 3.5 g)

  3. Chris93036 says:

    forgot to mention the atrix has a fingerprint reader and the different motoblur skins for both phones.. the skin on the Atrix looks like what juinor high kids will go for.

  4. Stan says:

    Also isn't the Atrix a world phone as well???

  5. trob6969 says:

    Actually the atrix also has ddr2 ram…I don’t see why moto just doesn’t make the atrix available for BOTH networks. I’m sure they’d make a lot more money without the bionic.

  6. Stefano says:

    I prefer Unlocked Phones - when I travel overseas,,,will the Bionic take a French SIM card or a German SIM card- Of course NOT.. Atrix 4G Blows away the Bionic

  7. robert says:

    I like the idea and quick set-up of the docking port with the Atrix, but I’m already using my BB Storm as my IP server for my laptop (I tether my laptop to my Storm with a mini USB cable-and currently I have unlimited date usage on Verizon).

    If Verizon decides not to carry the upcoming Storm 3 (and I’d prefer the eventual Storm 4 that will run on the QNS system and will be able to use Adroid apps-adaptability will become the standard in the next two years with smartphones-listen up, folks at Apple), I’ll then give the Bionic a try since I don’t see myself becoming an AT&T customer when I already have Verizon and dropped calls happen to others but not to me.
