Great phone overall but big email bug

BillSamuel, CNET
24 February 2013
  • Summary: Generally this has been reviewed as the best smart phone with a physical keyboard. It has a major defect in processing emails, but in pretty much all other respects is great.
  • Pros: Great keyboard, Very fast, 4-G
  • Cons: Emails do not clear out when you have downloaded them and they are no longer on the server. Since there is no batch delete capability, you have to delete each and every email by bringing it up and hitting the delete button. Poor design.

Great, besides battery

  • Excerpt: I've had my Droid 4 for 6 months or so, and for the most part, I am happy with it. Despite everyone I know trying to convince me that keyboards are going to be obsolete and that I should get one without, I went with my gut anyway. I upgraded from a Droid 2, so I was used tot he keyboard. When you use your phone for emailing and extensive texting, a physical keyboard is a must, and there aren't many options. The keyboard itself is easy to use, and I rarely mistype.

  • Cons: -Short battery life, -Bulky(but thats to be expected of a slide-out), -Crappy included charger (the cord is like 3 feet long)

"Good phone to make the jump from blackberry.."

Rassilon26, CNET
8 March 2012
  • Pros: Great keyboard, big screen, not as heavy as it looks, solid build, great 4G connection, nice internet browsing, and very good as an actual phone..
  • Cons: Battery is okay but it will drain under heavy use.. Not a deal breaker but keep an eye on it.. For this type of phone the battery is pretty good.. Don't compare it's battery to the Razar Maxx.. You'll you cry. Camera is nothing to write home about.

Good phone to make the jump from blackberry..

Rassilon26, CNET
8 March 2012
  • Summary: I've been on blackberry's since 2006.. This is my first touch screen phone.. I so badly wanted to get into virtual keyboarding but I can't do it.. I need a physical keyboard for the heavy typing I do on the go.. So comparing the Droid 4 to my recently given up Blackberry bold was my first step.. Droid 4 easily out does the Bold. The keyboard is actually better than the bold which I couldn't believe..
  • Pros: Great keyboard, big screen, not as heavy as it looks, solid build, great 4G connection, nice internet browsing, and very good as an actual phone..
  • Cons: Battery is okay but it will drain under heavy use.. Not a deal breaker but keep an eye on it.. For this type of phone the battery is pretty good.. Don't compare it's battery to the Razar Maxx.. You'll you cry., Camera is nothing to write home about.

Super fast, awesome physical keyboard, ~15 hour battery

mrhayes3, CNET

  • Summary: Overall, I love this phone. All the great apps, awesome features, fluid movement between menus and great picture and video, plus the physical keyboard (pretty back light too) make up for the somewhat lacking battery. Also on the topic of batteries, what's with the ridiculously short charging cable? Maybe they have a longer after market one, but I wish Motorola had their cable a little longer stock.
  • Pros: Very Fast. This is my first android based smartphone (coming from a blackberry curve), and I'm impressed with all the customization features and the speed. Internet works great as well, even with your regular 3g network. Great video and pictures.
  • Cons: The only problem I've had with this phone is it does have kind of a weak battery, and it's non-replaceable. That's a real bummer. I get through my day (7am-11pm) at a moderate usage and it needs its charger by 11pm.
