Summary: Just three months after Verizon launched the Droid 3 last July, buyer's remorse set in: the Droid 4 would add a speedy Verizon LTE connection, a edge-lit keyboard and a slick RAZR-like design, it seemed, long before owners of the existing handset would see their two-year contract end.
Pros: Great keyboard, Fast LTE connection, Solid, sleek build
Cons: Iffy battery life, No removable battery, Sub-par display, Loads of software bloat
Summary: Features: Dual camera design; dual video recording capatibilty! Multiple connectivity options on all three network types – not bad at all, Moto! HDMI port that allows external viewing tethering. MP3 / WAV / WMA / eAAC+ audio player; MP4 / H.263 / H.264 / WMV video player.
Excerpt: The name may have branched off to cover various Android devices on Verizon, but the core of the Droid line will always be the keyboarded slider. Today, we will be taking a look at the fourth generation of the purebred slider Droids, coming straight from Motorola.
Conclusion: I can only recommend the Motorola Droid 4 if you want a slide-out keyboard. Due to the keyboard, the phone is bulky and heavy. Plus, it gets mediocre battery life and has a disappointing camera. For most, the keyboard-less Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is a better option. It's lighter, slimmer and gets much better battery life.
Summary: Motorola's DROID 4 is the best phone on the market for those who need a QWERTY keyboard-equipped device. Outside of that niche, the DROID 4 fails to impress next to the RAZR, Galaxy Nexus, or iPhone...
Conclusion: When it comes down to it, this phone might not be exciting. Thin. Or sexy. But it is the only 4G Android smartphone currently available that has a sliding keyboard. And the keyboard is a nice one at that. Most Android fans will probably overlook this model, but if you prefer entering data on a physical keyboard over tapping on a touch screen, the Motorola Droid 4 should make you happy.
Pros: Very nice keyboard, Good camera
Cons: Battery is not user replaceable, microSD card not included, Only 960x540 resolution
