    New phone for Christmas?

    My contract is up, and with all these low prices on so many phones, I obviously should get a new one. I have the Bionic right now and I kind of can't stand it.. the touch screen is acting up all the time, random restarts, slow, etc. I want a phone with a physical keyboard, but there isn't many out there. The Droid 4 is an option, but I hear the battery life is awful. I want a phone with a good keyboard, and decent battery life, but that seems to hard to find.. What phone would you all recommend?
    Happy holidays

    I second the Maxx HD.

    It is somewhat difficult to text on the Bionic, with my big thumbs. Will texting be any easier or the same?

    I had the Droid 1 as my first android phone and it was great, the physical keyboard was amazing, then I bought an extended battery and my battery lasted forever. I wish I could do the same with the Droid 4, but you can't remove the battery. Should I just go back to my original Droid? It was the best phone I ever used, it's just out dated now..

    Going back to the droid would definitely be a painful experience imo. I love that phone but it's just WAY too dated

    The battery life in a Droid 4 is the worst I have ever had in any smartphone. I couldn't get through a whole day of use from that thing without having charge it. I loved the fact that I had a real keyboard. The move to a touch screen keyboard wasn't that bad for me and I have big hands/fingers.
