    They will always have a deal after its been out for a while. I've always signed 1 year contracts because I get bored of my phone and want the hottest and latest. But now that I have a 2 yr contract ugh I will prob pick up a nexus in a year or something comparable for around 300 off of craigslist or ebay. So far my d4 is worth the 150 I paid. I wouldn't mind a razr maxx but I love the keyboard even though the screen is meh.

    That was one of my dislikes,how awkward the screen was. The Eris is small and fits in my hand/pocket perfectly. I do miss having physical keys to type on but I've never liked holding my phone open with two hands,like an old fashioned gameboy. my thumb by itself is fast but I miss typing without looking on the front npad but that's pretty impossible on a full touchscreen. Maybe its not just the price but for that much it should be like a personal gd assistant,doing all the typing, replying and it should be a perfect mesh not settling since its far from free. I guess what can other Droid models do compared to these razrs,since they're the virtually siblings.
    That streaming from my desktop seems to be a real favorite but sounds like a battery killer or at least laggy--and does it work if my pc is off? I don't game much on my phone or look at videos like YouTube or trailers. I guess it comes down to not liking change I suppose but handling the D4 was awkward but if they were $20 images of two hundred I probably wouldn't be finding excuses. I really would like to get one just to have a fast phone but maybe I should try rooting the Eris first I just never understood what the advantages & risks were;would it be like just goin through msconfig to clear all the start up crap?

    Coming from a Droid Eris myself, I have no idea how the hell you were actually able to type that up and send it using the Eris. And after coming over to the D4.... I still have no idea how you were actually able to type that, and I can assure you that it will be a MILLION times easier with the D4.

    My Eris was soooo slow and just plain horrible. Couldn't run apps, it was slow, was difficult to use... I think it is def worth it. Plus i got it for $150!

    I could try for the $150 from best buy like that other guy said but I trust BB less than Verizon store,but I have that double upgrade. Eris was only crazy slow for me if I had fifteen apps running but I use advanced task killer so usually only have three open at once. Mp3 player slows it down if I'm multi tasking or receiving a text,that lags it a bunch.
    But doesn't the D4 have the same crappy battery as the regular razr? Or is it like the maxx with a keyboard

    if only it were a maxx with a keyboard, i'd love it more. but no, its battery is 5mAh more than the razr. not much of a difference at all.

    What features matter to you most? Storage? Reception? Display?

    IMO, the Droid4 is not really worth $200 unless you absolutely need a great hardware keyboard. It's keyboard does kick ass.

    But if you dont care about the keyboard I would really recommend passing on it and going with the Galaxy nexus, Rezound, Razr Maxx or LG Spectrum. I'd rather have any of those phones than a Droid 4.

    (Bonus: I think all of those phones are cheaper than the Droid4 as well)

    good points and it basically does boil down to if you want a keyboard. if that is the case then you will like it. vzw price says 200 but i got mine for 150 in store an have seen a lot of people that go to vzw get it for 150. the screen isnt great like the others mentioned but it is quick i havent noticed any lag. go to the vzw and compare the phones you might be interested in feature wise and got from there. and if you dont need a KB then Razr ,Rezound or nexus might be your next phone.
