    How is the droid 4 keyboard compared to the 3? I have had every droid besides the 4 and I love the 3 the best. Don't see the 4 being a big enough upgrade from the 3 to get it. Will probably get the maxx hd when I can upgrade seeing that I had the casio commando in between and was ok with just the touch screen. Wishing they would come out with a maxx 5. That would be my dream phone

    The keyboard is a significant improvement from the 3 to the 4 IMHO, and also the value of 4G can't be emphasized enough. If you live in a 4G market, I'd seriously consider the D4

    Just got 4g around here last week. How is the battery life with the new ICS update?

    I really love Android with QWERTY keyboard. It's nice if the QWERTY design to match a gamepad to beat XPERIA Play form factor plus give it a stylus support with 5" size. It become ultimate android for sure :)

    I went from Droid to Droid 3 to Droid 4. Each was a significant improvement over the one before it. The advantages the Droid 4 has over the Droid 3 make it a great upgrade even if the keyboard wasn't better (it is). 4G, twice the ram, official ICS and announced JB upgrade...... I liked my Droid 3......love my Droid 4.

    Personaly I thought the 3 was the best I've had all of them from the og to 4. The only improvements are a better front camera, webtop, more ram, and cool keyboard lights. I wasn't a huge fan of the 4, mostly because I had a massive 4000mah extended battery for my d3, and the d4 had 1750mah of 'nonremoveable' bs. The only thing that held the battery in was a sticker and a screw. if you could have put a bigger battery in the 4 I would have loved it. So I got rid of it for a galaxy nexus and I really miss my keyboard now

    You should hold off until the BlackBerry 10 series comes out. The keyboards, both physical and touch, are going to be the best on the market. Also, BlackBerry 10 will support Android apps. Even now BlackBerry still has the best keyboard (both physical and touch), its just that BlackBerry doesn't have enough apps and their phones are currently too slow to be desirable. From what I've been reading, BlackBerry10 will change all that.

    Btw, I love touch. Physical keyboards have always given me a headache.

    Wow, at first I thought you were just crazy but now! At least, it'll just be a small subset of apps that can be converted to crackberry. Google should just buy them out too.

    Samsung Stratosphere II.

    1.2 GHZ Dual Core Krait w/ 1GB RAM and 5 row QWERTY and 4" AMOLED.
    Removable battery and microsd slot
    GSM+LTE+CDMA

    To me, this is where the Droid owners should head. Yes, the build quality is doubtful to be on par with the Droid series, but it has the oomph and versatility that the Droid 4 doesn't have. I can't imagine the Droid 5 having a removable battery, so I will probably be getting a StratII as my next phone.

    Wow, gsm? What's the retail on one of those cause that might be the first phone it'd buy full price in order to move it to t-Mobile.

    I came across that here, and I've heard elsewhere that the StratII will be a global phone.
    Samsung Stratosphere II specs

    Now, whether it can/will be unlockable, I have no idea.

    I too am planning on buying it at full price to preserve my unlimited data + low minutes + no texting plan. I'll come out ahead after less than a year (vs. free w/ contract), and my current Strat1 needs a kick in the pants.... Arm A8 single core has run its course.
