    Nice write up, thank you. I ordered next-day mine at 7:00am EST, figuring it would get here today. The delivery date shows Monday though so I have to wait a few extra days :frown:.

    Got my Droid 4 at Best Buy. Used the $50 coupon so price was the same as it would have been for me at Verizon but you get a longer exchange policy. I am comming from Droid 1 so this phone is crazy fast compared to that. I like the screen just fine but again, I am comming from Droid 1 so it is a major improvement. Lots more internal storage which is nice. I kept my 16 GB Micro SD card and did not upgrade to the 32 GB one. I barely used any of my 16 GB so did not see any reason to upgrade.

    Old chargers still work but have to get a new car mount and dock. I used my droid as my clock and alarm so now I don't have a clock by my bed anymore. Keyboard and speaker are very nice. Amazing the difference between downloading on 3g vs 4g. My Driod 1 batteries did not last a day so I got used to car charger, USB charger at work and I have a mobile charger as well.

    Only problem is all my game data was lost. My 9-innnings baseball, Home Run 3d and all my angry birds data is gone. Have to start over. I thought that was stored on SD card but I guess not. It is also loaded with tons of apps. Not as big a deal because of the increased storage but wow.

    -It's super fast. Like ridiculously fast coming from my OG.
    -The keyboard is incredibly good. The keys are big and spaced. The back lighting is about the coolest looking thing I've ever seen.
    -That said, it's a little difficult to slide it out.
    -The bloat ware is pretty bad. A couple of the apps are able to be removed, though.
    -The screen is beautiful. The only thing I dislike about it is that the whites aren't exactly white, but have a bluish tint.
    -And the one thing I just don't like about it is the vibrate in it. The vibrator on the OG was loud and strong, this one sounds weak and it sounds like it's rubbing up against something it shouldn't be when it goes off.
    -I have nothing to say about "Blur" since I use GO Launcher Ex.
    -Oh, and its fast!
    Coming from an OG, this is two giant leaps forward in terms of the speed and the keyboard. I haven't used it enough to comment on the battery life, though. And one more thing, I've had one data drop so far, but it only lasted for a few seconds.

    Its now called Alarm and you have to set the volume from within the app settings. Its still there, just takes a bit to get used to it.

    The screen is a higher res but the pixels per inch seems less than the OG Droid. The screen looks dithered to me, compared to the OG Droid, but I think most new phones look like that now.

    The speaker in this phone is amazing. I was very surprised at the sound that comes from this phones speakers.
