Just picked up the new Droid 4 on Friday. I am impressed and pleased with the phone, but battery life has always been an issue for me--and I know problems of that nature are bound to happen eventually. I have heard conflicting reports regarding this latter issue. On one side I have heard that although a sticker on the battery of the D4 says "CANNOT BE REMOVED", you can remove it "if you really wanted to." Can anyone here offer me some clarification on this? If it is possible to remove, it provides me reason enough to remain optimistic for any potential battery packs in the future. If not, that is a problem to me considering this is a 4G phone.
Despite how happy I am with the D4, the DRMaxx remains intriguing to me. How wonderful it must be to never have to painstakingly worry if and when your battery will die. Coming off some crappy battery life phones, this may be worth it to me. The other side of me says that this alone is reason enough to exercise my 2 week trial of the D4 and opt for the Maxx.
The keyboard on the D4 is incredible. I'm coming over from a D2, which I got used to typing on after some practice, but this requires no "getting used to" feeling at all. It is fantastic in every way....perfect, really. So I need some help guys! Do I sacrifice an incredible keyboard and typing experience on the D4, shell out an extra $100 and return it for a DRMaxx? Will I be pissed off after a while and miss the D4's keyboard if I get the Maxx? Or will the extra battery life be worth it no matter what? Any input is appreciated. Thanks!
*Just to note: I realize that the Razr Maxx has a better screen than the D4, but screen resolution is really not that much of an issue for me. I do not watch a lot of movies or play a lot of games on my phone.
