With the smartphone category one of the fastest growing in consumer electronics, LG wants to increase its slice of the wireless action. The company recently announced new cell phones, including the sleek Optimus Black. Featuring a 4-inch display using technology that LG calls “NOVA,” the Optimus Black promises a bright display with high efficiency. New from Motorola is the DROID Bionic, which continues the popular DROID line of Android phones on Verizon Wireless. Both the Motorola DROID Bionic and the LG Optimus Black have some excellent features, but how do they compare against each other?

Key Differences

  • Display: The Motorola DROID Bionic will have a 4.3-inch LCD display, while the LG Optimus Black measures in at 4.0 inches. The big news is LG’s NOVA display technology, which the company claims will be twice the brightness of AMOLED displays while also being twice as efficient. LG says the Optimus Black will last all day on a battery charge because of the display’s superior efficiency. The resolution of the LG Optimus Black’s display is not known at the time this is written. At 540 x 960 pixels, the DROID Bionic ups the ante for display resolution on Android cell phones, and its larger screen may make long-term viewing (of a movie, for example) more comfortable on the DROID Bionic than on the LG Optimus Black.
  • Operating system: Both the DROID Bionic and the LG Optimus Black will run Android 2.2, and both companies promise an upgrade to Android 2.3.
  • Processor and RAM: Both the Motorola DROID Bionic and the LG Optimus Black feature dual-core 1GHz processors, and will be among the first cell phones to run with dual-core processors. The Motorola DROID Bionic will have 512MB of RAM, while the RAM in the LG Optimus Black is not yet known.
  • Keyboard: Both the Motorola DROID Bionic and the LG Optimus Black will have on-screen virtual QWERTY keyboards.
  • Storage Space: The Motorola DROID Bionic will ship with 16GB of onboard memory, and has a microSD slot that will accommodate memory cards up to 32GB. The onboard storage space in the LG Optimus Black is not yet known.
  • Camera: The Motorola DROID Bionic will have an 8-megapixel still-image camera, and will be able to shoot 720p HD video. The resolution of the main camera on the LG Optimus Black has not yet been revealed, but LG says the phone will be able to shoot 1080p HD video. Both phones have front-facing cameras, with the Motorola DROID Bionic clocking in at VGA resolution (640 x 480), and the LG Optimus Black will have a 2-megapixel device.
  • Battery life: The Motorola DROID Bionic will have a 1,930 mAh lithium-ion battery and the LG Optimus Black will have a 1,500 mAh battery. Hoswever, LG claims that its new NOVA display technology will make the Optimus Black more efficient than other phones.
