At CES earlier this year, Motorola dropped a trio of new Verizon handsets offering welcome improvements over the company's existing device selection. They were the now legendary Droid Razr Maxx, Droid Razr Purple, and Droid 4. Out of that lineup, it was the Droid 4 that initially grabbed my attention. Why, you ask? The simple answer is that it melds dual-core processing, a quality keyboard, Android, and Verizon LTE in one phone. That's the holy grail to some, at least for Android addicts who can't seem to live without a real physical QWERTY keyboard. Motorola seriously disappointed Droid fans with its Droid 3, which lacked the final puzzle piece, LTE data. Enter the Droid 4.
DesignIt's clear to me that the Droid 4 takes its design cues from other devices in Motorola's current 2012 lineup, The phone sports the black obelisk motif, complete with slightly rounded corners and beveled edges, as do the Droid Razr Maxx and Droid Razr, It's a classy look sure to fit in equally at the office or out on the town, There's no getting around, however, the large size of the Motorola Droid 4, I mean its girth stares at you right in the face practically begging for trouble, This bruiser measures 5 inches tall by 2.65 inches wide with a full thickness of half an inch, Weighing 6.31 iphone 8 iridescent naked tough case ounces, the Droid 4 is also hefty, Compared with the wafer-thin trend modern smartphones are taking, this handset stands out..
The trade-off for all that extra mass is just what makes it appeal to a very vocal set of Android users, a superb keyboard. Sliding the phone open reveals a gloriously engineered typing surface. While I admit keys are tightly packed together, travel is deep and buttons provide a deliciously rubberized tactile feel. Consisting of five rows, not merely four like on lesser devices, it has a dedicated number row on top. I also really dig the way the backlighting traces the outline of the Droid 4's squat rectangular keys. The spacebar goes on for what feels like miles and is easy to hit without looking down. The Droid 4's directional pad is nice as well and something you don't see often either.
To be clear, though, some things about the keyboard do bug me, First, there is no special key for ".com" or an emoticon button, Those are just minor quibbles, especially since there are keys for often-used punctuation marks such as comma, period, backslash, and equal sign iphone 8 iridescent naked tough case for all you math nerds out there (just kiddin', computation is cool), The majority of keys serve as secondary symbols too, One detractor is that to activate secondary functions, you need to hit the Shift key twice, This would be fine except that the button isn't marked yellow like all the secondary symbols are, At least a light on the left indicates when secondary functions are engaged..
For typing without the physical keyboard, the Droid 4 offers a stock Gingerbread virtual keyboard plus the Swype text input solution. Both are great to have on hand, especially the latter which allows for quick messages using just a finger to connect letters into words. I'm sure many out there won't mind the Droid 4's sharp 4-inch qHD (940x540-pixel resolution) screen. After just spending time with the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx's Super AMOLED display (4.3 inches, 940x540 pixels), I found myself craving its higher contrast and wider viewing angles. Still, the two devices boast the same resolution and I admit that watching the HQ trailer for the next "Spider-Man" flick on the Droid 4 was fun with web-slinging action shown in crisp detail.
