    I just viewed a D4 in store. The blurring is not from the screen. Its the jackass skin Moto is using. The D4 did blur out switching screens, but when I installed go launcher, that went away. The real problem is in the Youtube & gmail apps. Is it possible that moto is using a custom overlay here too?

    I put my D1 right next to it for comparison. My D1 youtube & gmail showed no blurring. Sad thing is the videos looked as good on my D1 as on the D4.

    i waited rather impatiently for months for the D4 to come out. After not being waited on at Worst Buy, i went across the street to the Verizon store and finally got to play with one. first thing i noticed was the blurry battery icon and then the rest of the blurry notification bar....i could have lived with that, but the blurry scrolling, terrible colors, even more horrible keyboard, and overall lag of the UI just killed it for me. My Og droid running CushZero was smoother and had a much more pleasing screen. The Razor Maxx caught my eye with it's smooth UI and sharp display. I hate not having a keyboard, but i do like having a large clear screen. when the razor's brighness is turned down, whites become more yellow, but they did a little bit on my old droid as well. Only one place in the whole city had a Maxx left, so i guess i got the last one in town. it's been 7 hours now and the battery is still at 100%...nice! only problem is that i know I'm going to drop this phone a lot because it's too thin and light to feel like your holding anything. The UI is really fast on the razor, but feels really outdated since now I'm used to the custom roms I've been running on my Og droid.

    Well, all I have to say is...thank god I didn't wait for this phone.

    Rocked Droid 1 and 2 Global, loved them to death. Sure I love the physical keyboard and the virtual keyboard on the GNex is still a little bit tough for me a month and a half in, but, this doesn't seem like it was worth the wait.

    Anyway, good luck with your phones, hope the bluish tints and blurry display are just defective phones that can be replaced.

    Phone screen isn't blurry and I see no bluish tint.

    I think people are really pulling hairs here.

    Ok, once you say the keyboard is "horrible" it's impossible to take any other critiques you have with the D4 seriously.

    I hope you're happy with the Max. I know I'm happy with the D4.

    I held the D4 next to a maxx yesterday and the maxx display blew it away. He!!, my D1 blew it away. Blacks arnt black, whites arnt white, etc... piss poor display. I've been waiting on this phone for a few months. What a waste. I am now trying to decide between nexus, maxx, or rezound. I really like the nexus display, but the maxx may win this battle.

    I'm finding it hard to believe people are having this response to the screen without either preconceived notions, bones to pick, or just bold-faced biased opinions in purpose of bashing the D4 or putting other phones on a pedestal. It's a qHD screen, not Amoled, we all know that and should expect the pros/cons that come with that. No surprises here on the screen.

    Any normal person who uses this phone would think the screen looks, well, like a fine, crisp screen. "Piss poor" isn't an apt representation of this screen. That's what I'd call a black and white Treo from 1999, not this phone.

    I seriously doubt we'll ever see a MAX version of the D4 - there's just no room for it. The Razor had the "hump" which naturally lent itself to getting filled-in with extra battery juice.

    I don't see another slider coming out for about a year with the D5 which will be quad core, more ram, and yes, a better screen.

    And I'll be loving the D4 until that comes out.

    Well compared to the 2 inch Samsung Alias 2 screen I'm coming from, this screen will probably look like heaven to me, lol.

    I love how all the haters are saying stay away from the Droid 4 and get the blah blah blah - all phones that don't have a physical keyboard!

    Who the heck wants to text and e-mail on a stupid touch screen all day? NOT ME! :p

    Believe me, I hear you about having to type on a touch screen, it was tough and still is tough getting used to.

    That said, I'm glad I didn't wait for this phone, one that I feel will be phased out rather quickly.
