Motorola Droid 4 Review

Motorola Droid 4 Review

The Motorola Droid 4’s best-in-class physical keyboard and fast 4G LTE speeds make it the top Android slider phone on the market.

4 stars
(4 out of 5)

Though many smartphone users prefer typing on a real physical keyboard to tapping on a flat touchscreen, the more advanced 4G handsets don’t have one. Last fall, Samsung released the first 4G LTE Slider in the Stratosphere, which had a fairly good keyboard but 2010-era specs such as a slow-moving single-core processor, a mere 800 x 480 screen and a standard-def camera. With the $199 Droid 4, Motorola and Verizon are finally offering keyboard lovers modern amenities such as a dual core CPU, a qHD screen, and an 8-MP camera. Add in a slew of useful apps and the Droid 4 is a truly compelling choice for users who need to do a lot of text entry.
