Droid BIONIC / Zumocast.. I'm in love!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, picked up the Bionic the other day (Yeah, little late on the punch because they wouldn't let use employee's get one till they sold like 50 so I had to pimp it out so I could get one. )

The phone - Love it, absolutely love it. It's almost as if it has everything anyone or anything could ever want and use. (Except it didn't come with the cool robot arms like in the commercial that make you breakfast.. )

The whole dual-core concept of the OMAP processors are really nice, and don't get as hot as the original DX did (Lol 114* F horror story.)

You can really tell a difference between the past devices that had less RAM, but it's not a major OMG experience, still very nice.

The screen has gotten a lot better IMO, some will argue that it sucks, (SGS2 / 4S users don't need to chime in here. ) Still looks very clear, vivid, crisp, and clear.

Camera - Can't tell a world of difference, but can still tell a difference, very impressed. HDMI mirroring is also got a lot better since the original DX and other devices.

Battery life has also became very nice and acceptable for it being a 4G phone, and considering the hardware, I was expecting terrible battery life but surprisingly, 12 hours off the charger with calls, texts, internet browsing, games, and some sweet Zumocast action, only at 15%. Not bad at all. (LG Revolution? LOL)

And finally, ZUMOCAST! :happys mil Loving Zumocast, was expecting much, much, less out of the application and program. But that has all changed. Streaming is a absolute dream, everything is organized, streams A LOT better than I anticipated. Even on 3G streaming is really nice, yeah, on some of my movies and such it takes a minute to buffer, but afterwards, silk!

Very impressed with the overall design of the phone, and the new MotoApps and all that jazz. Didn't see a thread for it, so I figured I'd chime in and just rant about the lovely experience(s) I've had and am continuing to have!


So for those of you on Big Red who have an upgrade or have one coming up, this phone is highly recommended! Although I'm sure this thread will get crapped on and flooded with SGS2/4S and Nexus Prime people, just take it as a good read and if you own a Bionic/Droid3 or another phone that supports Zumocast or other Media Streaming software, feel free to post up and share, and give us your experience with the software.

I've heard of tons of issues with the bionic and there are many unhappy owners who regret their choices.

The only issue that has come to my attention and I have experienced is losing 3G and I'll have to go into Airplane mode to fix it. But it hasn't done it anymore so far.

That's odd, I haven't heard any complaints except for the 3G issue, that sucks, because the phone is awesome. But, every person will how their own experience and preference.
