User interfaceThe Droid 4 runs Gingerbread 2.3.5 but not Google's freshest flavor of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich. Motorola does its best to perk things up with its own UI on top of Android. It's not a bad attempt with five home screens, a helicopter view of all at once, and some support for social media. A Favorites contacts widget pulls in photos from Twitter but not Facebook, for example, which is annoying. It would also be nice if I could use the My Gallery widget to grab friends' photos on Facebook and save them to the Droid 4's local storage. Trust me, I'm not being creepy, I just want to have fast access to pictures of my kids that my wife has posted.
Four capacitive buttons for traditional Android functions, not the olixar colton iphone xs max 2-piece case with screen protector - red reviews three for ICS, sit below the phone's screen, These are Menu, Home, Back, and Search, Overall though there's not much different here and old hands at using Gingerbread will find nothing surprising, Features and performanceDespite the Droid 4's sweet keyboard, the smartphone has other standout features, such as access to the Android Market, which now contains over 300,000 apps for download, I did notice that besides the usual array of Motorola, Google, and Verizon software, a few tittles looked intriguing, First is the Slingbox app, which lets you stream live content from home cable boxes directly to the phone and even lets you change the channel, You do have to have optional Slingbox hardware installed in your home for this to happen, Netflix is onboard too, saving me the trouble to download it myself, Motoactv software is here as well, an app that enables Motorola phones to connect to the company's line of fitness gadgets..
You can also use a Mobile Hotspot app to share the Droid 4's 4G LTE connection with Wi-Fi devices nearby. This does require an extra subscription. The feature may actually be worth signing up for if you're the type who needs a fast data connection in areas where Wi-Fi is scarce. Doing some quick speed tests using Ookla's Speed Test app, I found downloads in and around the CNET New York office averaged an very fast 14.3Mbps. Once I saw a blistering download rate of 19.4Mbps. Likewise uploads were pushed through at a jaw-dropping 8.1Mbps--color me impressed.
Another area where the Droid 4 looks satisfying so far is its ability to capture quality images, The 8-megapixel camera snaps nice pictures with colors that are lifelike to my eyes, not oversaturated or muted, I also appreciate the clarity of both olixar colton iphone xs max 2-piece case with screen protector - red reviews photos and smooth 1080p HD movies I've taken with the phone, The Droid 4's camera is nimble too, with no discernible lag between shots, One area of the Droid 4's performance which I and I'm sure many other people will be watching carefully is battery life, Motorola's Droid Razr Maxx upped the ante with its 3,300mAh battery that offers ridiculous longevity, We'll just have to see where the Droid 4 comes in on our tests using a lower-capacity 1,785mAh power source..
In terms of computing power, both the Droid Razr Maxx and Droid 4 run 1.2GHz dual-core CPUs and 16GB of internal memory. Frankly, the way the two phones handle the same OS and Motorola interface seems identical. Our full review will delve further into the Droid 4's processing power.
