    Upgrading from my Droid2Global, which I got as a FRU replacement from Verizon for my Droid2 when I had a speaker issue. Still LOVED the D2G and passed it on, along with it's awesome CM7 ROM to my wife, who is slowly falling in love with how pink I was able to make the entire OS. Cannot wait for CM9 to function better on the D4 so I can ditch GB once and for all.

    coming from the original droid
    had it for nearly 2 years, great phone
    loved how the frame was some sort of metal

    but it finally went ape**** and the screen started jumping around and pressing random buttons and would lock up or restart for not apparent reason
    and sometimes when plugging in the usb it would restart into recovery mode

    oh and sometimes during the middle of calls it would hang up and start playing a random song from my memory card

    now im on the droid 4, skipped right over 2 and 3
    few quirks i dont like, but over all great device

    i wish the @ and ? were the primary on the keys instead of having to press shift to get them

    also whats the point of a caps lock when double pressing the shift does the same thing?
    and why dont the letter keys (qwerty) have alt characters?

    arent there 60ish buttons on a standard qwerty keyboard (minus the function and some others) and like 55ish on the droid4 keyboard? you'd think they could make them as similar as possible


    but enough complaining, great phone:hail:

    Got the D1 November 09 and it was, and still is a great phone. But, the D4 is a true upgrade to the D1. If a slider keyboard is important to you, the D4 will impress. Despite some reviews, I find the keyboard the best yet. Video and camera shots are very natural looking for the most part, and many helpful options. 4" screen is small by today's standards, but outshines the D1 screen. I'm over 3 months using the D4 and enjoy it every day. Check it out.

    RTM works better alone I think. Have used the outlook interface but it doesn't seem to sync just right. Uninstalled again. But I use the mail-in option for new RTM items through outlook.
    Right now I use the app and the browser version to schedule all my work including my whole team. Love it. Everyone has the app. I know when things got done.

    Absolutely love it!

    Lol I'm coming from several devices. But directly from a Touch Pro 2 from Verizon.

    I wanted to stay on vzw and actually wanted a Pro 7 but vzw wouldn't pick it up so i wait and waited. Till a device came out for me, I demoed the Droid 4 and decided it was time to move on. I needed a device that would allow me to be a mobile office, there are still things I miss about the tp2 but this is definitely an upgrade.

    Coming from the samsung transform ultra. Actually still using it to mess around with rooting and romming. It just wasn't capable of doing what I wanted to get out of it. Also boost sucks for service. Lol

    Came from a Sprint Touch Pro 2 -- which had a slightly better keyboard layout with slightly worse keypress execution and a much nicer tilt action for the screen when slid up.

    Overall, however, the Droid 4 is better. But there is no question that I wish a few of the TP2 features had been replicated on the Droid 4.

    leaving dead 18 month old D2G for D4

    screen failed on D2, found too many reports of same on Verizon forums. I just hope the one report of D4 doing that is a fluke. I'll be hot to use warranty this time.

    Had a Galaxy Nexus I paid full price for in January, got switched out to a Razr Maxx 4 months later because the GNex couldn't hold a 4G signal and finally to a Droid 4. I'm able to deal with the smaller screen. The hardware keyboard is fantastic.

    I had a Verizon Touch Pro 2 a couple of years ago. It was my favorite phone except for WinMo. I wish HTC would make a tilting screen phone with a 4.5" HD screen and ICS. I would buy it in a New York minute.
