Motorola Droid 4 Review: Snappy Performance and a Great Keyboard

 

Packing a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and what was (at the time) the most recent version of Android, the original Motorola Droid stood for everything the iPhone wasn't. But Motorola's interest in QWERTY Android phones has slackened with each new model....

Excellent keyboard ; LTE Connectivity ; Speedy performance

Non-removable battery ; Display sharpness is lacking ; Below average camera

The Droid 4 is the phone to buy if you are looking for a physical keyboard, though the blurry display leaves some room for improvement.

Motorola Droid 4 review

 

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...

Great keyboard ; Fast LTE connection ; Solid, sleek build

Iffy battery life ; No removable battery ; Sub-par display ; Loads of software bloat

Motorola's Droid 4 seems to have it all: a fast dual-core processor, Verizon LTE, and a five-row QWERTY keyboard

Motorola Droid 4

 

Do you remember the Droid 3? It came out last July, bringing a fine update to the Droid line in almost every way. It had a dual-core processor, a slick new design, new software, and a new five-row keyboard. Unfortunately, Motorola underestimated the...

Amazing slide-out keyboard with number row ; 4G LTE connectivity ; Solid battery life ; Did we mention the keyboard

Poor screen quality ; Camera takes washed-out pictures ; NinjaBlur UI is ugly ; Power and volume buttons are awkward to press

If you want a phone that can tap into Verizon's 4G LTE network and you prefer a physical keyboard, then you can't go wrong with the Motorola Droid 4.

Motorola DROID 4 Review

 

Finally the one-two-three punches of Verizon's 4G LTE, a dual-core processor, and an 8 megapixel camera capable of 1080p video has come to the DROID line of QWERTY keyboard-having Android devices. Those of you who are die-hard fans of the DROID line...

This device certainly deserves to have a spot amongst the high-end line of Android devices at its release, but will be forgettable within a few months at the dawn of the quad-core smartphone and the start of the Ice Cream Sandwich having Androids being...

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. For a phone that single-handedly resuscitated the business prospects of its parent company, gave a much-needed boost to Google's fledgling Android and finally added a compelling product to Verizon's lineup, the Droid...

Top-notch QWERTY keyboard ; Responsive 4-inch qHD display ; Healthy battery life ; Fast LTE speeds

Non-removable 1,785mAh battery ; Clumsy backplate

As the latest addition to Verizon's red-eyed family, the Droid 4 improves upon its predecessors' keyboards, offering physical QWERTY fans one of the most refined experiences on the market.

Motorola Droid 4 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The original Motorola Droid was a truly phenomenal smartphone hit. It pushed the envelope by offering Android to the masses, complete with a rock-solid Verizon network connection and decent if not stellar physical keyboard. Since then, though, the...

Motorola's Droid 4 shows that a dual-core, 4G LTE Android slider phone with a QWERTY keyboard is possible. With fast data speeds and a great typing experience, the phone also serves up pleasing call quality over Verizon's network

By bartering its powerful components and swift data radio for a chassis of considerable size and heft, the Droid 4 proves that life is all about making trade-offs. It lacks the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, and its LCD screen lacks the...

Melding an excellent keyboard, swift LTE data, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor into one Android device, the Motorola Droid 4 is long overdue. Fans of the first Motorola Droid will find plenty to smile about here, but those who aren't married to a...

Motorola Droid 4 (Verizon Wireless)

 

Superb hardware keyboard. Fast. Good battery life. Very good call quality

Big and heavy. Doesn't run Android 4.0

The Motorola Droid 4 gives you top-notch Android power, fast Verizon LTE, and the very best QWERTY keyboard you'll find on a phone.

Motorola DROID 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Nexus

 

Very recently, the Motorola DROID 4 brought the spotlight back to one of platform's most prominent Android families, which is hardly a surprise considering that this model has been upgraded with 4G LTE connectivity and an even better keyboard....

Normally, newer devices gain a lot of attention for being fresh on the scene, as opposed to some other models that have been around for months. Yes, we adore that the DROID 4 is the supreme messaging device, and even better, its $200 on-contract...

Motorola DROID 4 vs Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX

 

Spitting out devices like no other, Motorola has blessed Verizon's lineup very recently with venerable devices in the DROID 4 and DROID RAZR MAXX. On one hand, you have a device with a killer keyboard for messaging, while the other relies on its...

Strolling down memory lane, it’s amazing to know that the DROID 4 is a descendant of the granddaddy Android device of them all, the original Motorola DROID, but in this day and age, the latest DROID-only branded device has seemingly passed on the flag...

Motorola DROID 4 Review

 

Taking care of business, the Motorola DROID 4 rightfully eases the concern from last time, while employing some of the necessary iterative improvements on the hardware side to keep it in good light with the company. Some have argued that the DROID line...

Fantastic keyboard ; Acceptable $199.99 on-contract price ; Great calling quality

Poor quality display ; Non-removable battery ; Below average battery life

Some will argue that the midas touch and allure of the DROID family has faded, as it seems as though the torch has been handed over to other more prominent devices like the DROID RAZR. However, when you think about it more, the original DROID family...
