Summary: I've only had two smart phones in my life, the Droid and Droid 4. I only upgraded to the Droid 4 a few months ago after deciding I wanted something with a better camera and better battery life but that still had the slide-out keyboard.
Summary: It was "refurbished", but I had trouble with the keyboard, screen freezing, not hanging up after ending a call, and other things. My main complaint was that I paid extra for it because it was "refurbished" which should mean that it works like new, though not.
Summary: Let me preface this by saying this is not the first time I've owned this phone. I bought this one to replace my old DROID 4 that was just worn out. I loved it and thought I would get the same service out of this one.
All around terrible phone. I know its hard to part with ...

Summary: The phone lasted a whopping 3 months. It wouldn't recognize a charger unless you literally held it jammed in there. Freezes, crashes, repeat. Downloading music onto this phone is miserable and it resets all your playlists every time you do. Lousy camera. All around terrible phone.
Summary: received with no back & a dead battery,cost would be $35 to activate it to see if it even worked,not sure about battery or cost of new one,it says to not remove it,so don"t know how to test it or charge it,cheapest back I found was another $7.00 too.
Summary: Ended up returning to Motorola for a replacement as it would not hold a charge. Not sure what rocket scientist at Motorola decided to start making batteries PERMANENTLY attached to phone but he should be working in a donut shop.
Excerpt: I couldn't wait to buy the new Droid 4, having had and loved my Droid 2 for well over a year. I read the reviews and since I love having a physical keyboard, I was very excited. My first Droid 4 ran down its battery, despite tweaking everything to maximize the life, in only a few hours.
Pros: Keyboard is wonderful
Cons: Battery is beyond awful, Phone is buggy and not ready for release, Screen sucks
