First, I have this phone against my will. I started Droid, then D2. Skipped D3 and wanted D4, but can't deal with the little battery when I can't just change it. I can't charge much during the day like many. If they do come out with a D4 Maxx this thing will be likely be for sale.
Second, I now have a larger screen and there is no more room on the screen for Icons or widgets. Everything is just bigger, which would be great I guess if I had bad vision. I ran ADW before and had 7 screens which I will try, but I figure 5 screens on this larger phone should be able to fit about the same stuff. Just won't have as many dividers.
Third, I did a backup of every app I could on my D2 so I could just load them up on the new phone and save a lot of work. Biggest one is Tasker, I have a lot of things already setup on here and it will take me days to get it back to where it is, but when I try to restore it can't find it. Do I need to move it to the internal storage or some exact spot for it to work, where? Also, had this issue with Extreme Call Blocker, Gental Alarm, and can't remember the rest at the moment
Next, why did the get rid of the magnet activation for docking. Is there another easy way to have it switch to car dock. My girlfriend and I have the same magnet mounts in all 4 vehicles. So, it didn't matter what we were driving because we use the same mount in each one and it didn't cost an arm and a leg. Now she wants a different phone than me, so that means I will have to buy a mount for her car for when I drive it or remember to bring the car dock from one of mine? Coming from Droid 2's and I'm not a fan of that idea.
Also, ad in standard complaint about Verizon constantly adding more apps that are not needed and can't be removed without rooting. I say put all the apps they want on there. I bet some of the less tech people use and love some of them, but please let the rest of us remove them.
With all of that said, I think I can get use to the keyboard enough to keep the phone and the rest of the phone is insanely great. It is very fast and smooth. I'm up in the air about the size. I keep it in my pocket so I think I would prefer the 4" on the D4, but I would miss the size at the same time.
