    Droid 5 in new future?

    Was considering trading in my droid 1 for the droid 4 but with all the battery complaints and some questions about the screen I think I might wait. Has there been any mention of a droid 5 coming?

    If Moto actually keeps to their statement about slowing production, I would say either at the end of this year or Q1 of 2013. The only mention of a Droid 5 is that of people asking about it, honestly. Not being a douche. Nothing official or rumored has been relelased or "leaked."

    The D4 just released barely a month ago, doubt a D5 is being released anytime soon, but then again it's Moto so who knows. ICS hasn't even hit the D4 and once that does it's life cycle will increase.

    You should keep in mind that practically every current smartphone on the market has anecdotal reports of poor battery life. I would take them with a grain of salt. Smartphone battery life varies widely from person to person based on usage and app background data settings.

    I upgraded from the D1 to the D4 about a month ago and I'm very satisfied. My battery life is fantastic. It's true that the RGB pentile screen is not nearly as vivid and clear as an AMOLED screen would have been, but battery life and visibility in sunlight is better with pentile screens, and the pixelation is really only noticeable if you're actively looking for it.

    I'm sure there will be a D5, but I think that the any difference between the D4 and D5 won't be nearly as significant as the difference between the D4 and the D3.

    ICS is an automatic upgrade that comes right to the phone?

    I think you are confusing that with OTA. Ics is the code name for ice cream sandwich and 4.0 OS.

    No. gingerbread is on the D4. These are names of the operating systems from Android. Ics is the next operating system. Gingerbread is the current/previous one

    No, it will not be available on the D4 until at least mid-summer or beyond. That's what I have been hearing anyway. Still an awesome phone, and if you root and DL SetCPU from the market, battery issue solved. I rooted my phone a few weeks ago and have been getting 21+ hours on a single charge. Yeah, you read that right.
