Anywhere I go, I have my phone in my hand. It is my lifeline. I get my e-mail, phone calls and even my work calls get forwarded there occasionally. But it’s more than that, it’s my camera, my phone book and even my grocery shopping list. So what phone will give you all the options and all the power you need? The Droid Bionic, which really can act like another limb, or another part of your brain.
Just like other Android phones, the Droid Bionic logs into your Google account easily, allowing you to grab your e-mail, calendar and contacts that you have already put online. The constant syncing means that you can get all of your up-to-date information from your computer or your phone and make changes on the go.
The Droid Bionic is fast. A 4G phone running on the Verizon Wireless network, the phone flies around the net through the built0in web browser. It also gives users the ability to use Skype, post pictures and video on the fly to sites like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr. Not to mention the fast speed combined with YouTube means constant entertainment for my kids, and sometime me! Stream music, play games and use the built-in GPS navigation as you move about town.
And go ahead, load it up with all of your apps. The phone can handle it. I filled it up with grocery shopping and coupon apps and never noticed any lag time when moving from app to app, or on the download.
The phone captures stunning 8 mp pictures and HD movies, for all those moments that happen on the go.
The Droid Bionic is the full package. If you are looking for a phone to manage your life, this one will certainly make the grade.
