Droid Bionic Benchmarked: How Fast Is It? (video)

We previewed the Motorola Droid Bionic at CES, held our breath over the rumors and long delays, and then recently finally cast off the box and put our hands on the super-sleek release version of this now-mythic device. So what’s left?

Well, after so much anticipation, it’s fitting that we dig in and check out this smartphone’s performance to see if it lives up to the hype. So what can a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB Ram, and 4.3 qHD screen do in the “real world” of the Technobuffalo benchmark tests? I ran my favorite Quadrant benchmarking tool to find out.

The Bionic did a very respectable job, although it didn’t top the list. At a Quadrant score of 2,202, it beat out both the Nexus One and the Moto Droid X, but other recent advanced smartphones still outperformed it:

Samsung Galaxy S II: 3,053
Atrix 4G: 2,616
Droid X2: 2,453
T-Mobile G2x: 2,379
Droid Charge: 975
