Motorola Droid 4 review


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

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 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 (Verizon Wireless) review:


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 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...

Motorola Droid 4 Review: 4G LTE, Keyboard, Dual-Core Power


The new Motorola Droid 4 takes Verizon's flagship Android line and adds an updated design, faster processor, and 4G LTE. But is that enough to make it a worthwhile upgrade? We put the D4 through its paces to see what the verdict is.

Great keyboard ; Comfortable design

Non-removable battery ; Lacks predecessor's international roaming ; Marginal screen

It has decent specs, including 4G LTE, but there are other devices just as good in that department, and the Droid 4 offers nothing else particularly special to the user. I’m sure that it’ll find a useful niche for some people, but if you can wait, I’d...

Motorola Droid 4 Review: 4G LTE, Keyboard, Dual-Core Power


Unfortunately, since the Droid 4 is not guaranteed waterproof -- and because Verizon's PR firm was expecting it back in a week -- I decided not to do the kind of serious water testing I'd gone through on the last waterproof smartphone I handled

Great keyboard ; Comfortable design

Non-removable battery ; Loses D3's international roaming ; Marginal screen

A serviceable device, and one which is the only option right now for a keyboard device with 4G LTE. But discriminating users will want to wait for the next generation

Verizon Motorola Droid 4 Review


The Droid 4 has gotten almost everything right: it's sized right for a phone that includes a keyboard and feels very durable, has acceptable battery life, a fast processor, and a nice display. It is Gingerbread OS is disappointing, but still functions...

Best slide-out keyboard around ; Great call quality ; Has a microSD card slot for expandability

Non-removable battery ; Lower resolution display than competing phones ; Doesn't run Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich (yet?) ; Doesn't come with headphones or microsdcard

The Droid 4 has gotten almost everything right: it's sized right for a phone that includes a keyboard and feels very durable, has acceptable battery life, a fast processor, and a nice display. While the Gingerbread OS is disappointing, the device still...

Verizon Wireless Motorola DROID 4 Review – Need a QWERTY?


As its name so clearly implies, the DROID 4 is the fourth such device in Motorola slide-out QWERTY keyboard family of phones. Each one typically offers mid-range to high-end hardware at an affordable price point, but the DROID 2 and…
