Not worth the hassle

  • Excerpt: I wouldn't waste my money on this phone. I think it was released too soon because of all the problems I've read online. I've had 5 of these phones in less than 2 years. I want able to finish my 2 year contract because of the issues, I had to take my mom's upgrade to get a Galaxy s4. The common problems I've experienced with this phone were the battery never fully charging or saying is charging when the battery number goes down, no 4G at all, calls randomly being dropped,...
  • Pros: QWERTY keyboard, Camera
  • Cons: Battery refusing to charge, Recent upgrade caused no more 4G, Inability to multitask when making a phone call, Slow Internet (probably because of 3G)

I dont have it, but pros and cons of D4, thank you!

  • Summary: Ive heard that the camera is very high in quality. Ive heard that the full qwerty keyboard is great to the touch. And the most reason I want this phone is because I HAVE TO HAVE A FULL KEYBOARD. Plus, I want the touch feature. Is there any phone that youd recommend with touch AND full qwerty physical keyboard? Ive heard that the battery life is ok, not as good as the Droid Raxz Maxx, but it is alright. Ive heard that the screen isnt as clear as people want it to be.
  • Pros: I dont actully have this D4, but I really want to get it.
  • Cons: I dont actully have this D4, but I really want to get it.

Overall a good phone.

  • Summary: I still like the phone given the problem, but if it happens again where i have to go with out a phone until I can get to a store, i will be trading out.
  • Pros: Front and back camera is nice to be able to skype. I love the keyboard and it is super quick. I would like to be able to get an extended battery, but so far the battery life has sufficed for me.
  • Cons: No removable battery. I have had the phone for 3 days,and right now i am staring at a frozen screen which i or verizon tech supp. can not fix. I have to wait to go back to store and get replaced. Needs a reset button to avoid this.

Wow what a great a keyboard....on the same old phone.

  • Summary: Motorola and Samsung should get together and creat a really great physical keyboard slider. Samsung did a great job with the Stratosphere, its asthetics are SOOOO much better than the clunky Droid 4. Yes the Droid 4 looks like a smaller version of the Razor, also a clunky square phone but its uninspiring. The keyboard is great, one of the best, I must say but thats about it.
  • Pros: Keyboard is the best ever.
  • Cons: Same old lackluster screen, bulky, blocky, thick

Power Users Beware

  • Summary: Unless QWERTY is your personal divinity, "this is not the Droid you are looking for".
  • Pros: Swift - Dual Core and fast processor make a big difference. , 4G LTE is a wonderful improvement--but a battery hog. , Key Pad is well made and operates smoothly., Good screen, albeit no AMOLED., UI seems better than I am used to.
  • Cons: BATTERY IS NOT SUFFICIENT FOR INTENSIVE USE. After just a couple of hours, you can SEE the battery level declining. It will not last a full day for me. , There is a little "play" between keyboard and screen. It is obnoxious.
