    It looks like the specs have been leaked for the Droid 4 I guess the phone will be coming out earlier then expected with these types of specs.

    Screen is not AMOLED either (specsheet says TFT screen which is LCD). Lets hope its not the screen from D3, but a normal RGB stripe screen! I rather have SLCD screen like on ATRIX 2 instead pentile AMOLED. Interesting beast - global (unfortunately no mention of 850/1900 WCDMA band this time around). Single band LTE (Canadian LTE devices all have 700/1700/2100). Not quite as global as D3 and even D2 Global, but better than nothing. I wonder if there will be non-US version released too, even without LTE radio. I'd take it over my buggy updateless XT860 with crappy looking screen and measy half gig RAM. Not, if it has the same screen as D3!

    I haven't seen the screen on the D3 - is it worse than the screen on the D1?

    D1/2 screen is much higher quality than D3. D3 beside using the dreaded pentile matrix RGBW configuration (which essentially means actual pixels are 33% less than the classic RGB stripe matrix) has uneven backlight (I've been through 2 phones suffering this more or less). D2G screen not only has better colors, crisper lines but has higher pixel density (when you account for the pentile) despite D3 being qHD. The only pluses D3 has over D1/2/g when it comes to display is the excellent visibility in daylight (very bright display) and reduced power consumption (longer battery life with display on). D3 is great in displaying black and white text and photos - if that can be accounted as plus :)

    Thanks for the info! Bummer about the screen. Hopefully the D4 won't be the same but I'm not getting my hopes up

    D1: 169g
    D2G: 173g
    D4: 179g

    Damn it will be lol, as I'm holding my D1 right now I thank its heavy. Why so much more weight when they are making it with a non removable battery. Don't make sense to me so they should go ahead and put a removable one in it.

    Well they haven't said it's non-removable. And if you look at Leaked Droid 4 Specs shows a "key" to open the back cover. Which may get to a removable battery. Or maybe just to get to the SD an SIM card.
    If there is a non-removable battery, wouldn't it have been easier to put the SIM and SD card on the side with a cover over it? That's how my old Env2 worked the SD card. Never a problem to get to or just leave as is, since it didn't poke out and you couldn't get to it unless you slide off the cover of the SD slot (the cover was attached to the phone so it was never lost either).

    But yes, it's going to be more heavy. I agree the D1 is heavy. Anytime I pick up anyone elses phone, I can't believe how light their phone is.

    It's been confirmed multiple times to have non-removable battery.
