I went to the store and checked out the phones. They had a Droid Bionic, Droid Razr Maxx and a Droid 4 right next to each other, which was great, because those are the three phones that I wanted to compare. I looked at the phones and while they were all impressive, I REALLY like the Droid 4. Some people may not like a bulky phone or see the need for a hardware keyboard, but I immediately pulled out the keyboard to try it out. It is amazing! The keyboard is great. The buttons are larger and have a better shape than the keys on my current Droid and there is even a row of numbers at the top so you don’t have to get all ALT happy when you’re typing in an address or phone number. I didn’t see any of the ghosting issues that have been talked about in reviews. I was actually impressed with the display. I like the way it looks.
My birthday is coming up very soon and I’ve been wanting to upgrade my Motorola Droid (original) for a while. Finally on Wednesday, I decided to check out the Droid 4 because I had heard both really good and really bad things about it and decided that I needed to see it for myself. As I went through the Verizon Wireless site and was pleasantly surprised to see that the Droid 4 was $100 off and the Droid Bionic was free! Because I had heard that the screen was not up to par on the Droid 4, I decided that I needed to go to the store and check it out myself.
