We did a quick test of the Motorola Droid Bionic's video-recording capabilities to let you see what the phone's 1080p HD video looks like. This was taken around noon on a nice sunny day in San Francisco outside the CNET offices.

We have to say the quality looks pretty good for a smartphone. Color is good and it looks sharp for the most part. However, as you can see, our hands shook a little bit, and it showed. The stability isn't really that great, and there are the occasional artifacts. We'll look into getting more video samples from other 1080p HD video capture phones like the Samsung Galaxy S II and the HTC Sensation to see how they compare.

Our colleague Seth Rosenblatt, shot his Windows 8 First Look with a Droid Bionic, so you can check that out for further evaluation.

The Droid Bionic is Verizon's first 4G LTE phone to have 1080p HD video capture, and also the first to have both 4G and a dual-core processor. It ships with Android 2.3.4 and features a 4.3-inch qHD display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a front-facing VGA camera, 16GB of internal storage (plus it comes with a 16GB microSD card), and more.
