The rear of the device features a battery cover that engulfs the entire back of the phone in a soft-touch rubberized finish.

The display and touch performance on the Motorola Droid Bionic is possibly the best of any Android device I have used. It just goes to show how much of a difference it makes when the hardware and software work perfectly together. Each tap is instantly recorded, and swiping from one home screen to the next -- something that performed terribly on the Droid 3 for me -- flows incredibly well on the Droid Bionic. Touch performance isn't as good as on Apple's iOS, but it's getting so close that it doesn't really matter anymore.

The screen itself looks exactly like Motorola's other qHD offerings. It's a PenTile display that will be incredibly frustrating to around 1% of the people who own it; most people don't notice and don't care. The resolution is great, the display is bright and colors look good, though whites don't appear to be perfect white thanks to the PenTile display.
