Motorola DROID BIONIC and ATRIX to have power management bugs?
With the release of the Motorola ATRIX for AT&T and DROID BIONIC for Verizon to be right around the corner, it's disheartening to hear that the devices might be released with major Power Management bugs. Posts over on Howard Forums have stated the Power Management bug can cause a wide variety of issues, including overheating (even while in idle), power fluctuations affecting RF signal performance, and cold boot issues. Other Motorola insiders on the board are saying these issues are being kept quiet as the company obviously wants to get it fixed before the final units make it to store shelves. Over on the Electronista site, they have posted an official response from Motorola PR denying the issue completely and saying there is no power management or overheating problems on the two devices. All we can hope for at this point is that the power management bugs will be fixed before the two phones are released, as it would be a shame for them to have these issues while in paying customer's hands.

Wow, sounds like someone wants to sabotage Motorola's sales by spreading unsubstantiated rumors. Here are two incredibly powerful phones, unreleased and still under development, and there's a "bug"; if it's even true, it's not a bug, it's an issue that hasn't been reprogrammed yet.

Well if it is true, and Motorola does fix the issue AT&T customers can expect to never receive the update for the fix.

Yeah, the power management bug is called Android OS. I've never seen an OS gobble up battery life like Android does, no matter how lightly you use it.

Currently if you talk on the iphone 5 for over thirty seconds it will combust and shoot shards of glass/tatanium threw your skull at speeds over the speed of light.

Luckily no one in the world has one.


close one.

nah, if the iphone 5 had a bug, it would be the "it accidentally DOESNT hang up on people" bug.. lol.

if this bug is there at release, then its important. manufacturing and coding issues before release are every day events, and not important.

err... I remember many saying the same thing I said and i backup any device with "flaws" before its even released then only one finding it disturbing where the biased apple fanboys saying this was a mayor issue because the iPad provides a better battery performance...

this will be an issue if the phone(any) its shipped with this "bug"

"variety of issues, including overhearing (even while in idle)"....

That's just as important as a typo in an unpublished book.

well if there is a bug and its going to be released... it probobly wont be on the bionic but on the attrix. seeing as the attrix is going to be released a over month before the bionic. by the time the bionic comes out the problem will be more than likelly fixed and this will be a big problem for att.

...this is the motorola i remember hating with a passion b4 the droids came out.

oh well, its not a bug if its not released yet. it's a prototype. If people acted like this when the wright brothers were inventing flight we'd still b taking a sailboat to europe. chill the hell out phonearena....we dont care.
