Motorola Droid 4 Review

Rating: ★★★½☆

Motorola adds yet another new phone to the Droid series phones – the Motorola Droid 4. The phones measures 127 x 67.3 x 12.7mm and weighs 178.9g. The phone has a very sturdy appeal and the exterior is made up of water-repellant technology. However it is not fully waterproof.

The Motorola Droid 4 has a very large sized capacitive touchscreen display that measures 4 inches. It comes with a display resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. Below the display, you can find four capacitive Android buttons. Located above the display is the front-facing camera of 1.3MP and it is powerful enough to record 720p videos. The power button and volume controllers have soft response. On the left edge of the phone, you can find the microUSB and the microHDMI slots. At the rear, there is a 8MP camera. The physical QWERTY is one of the main USPs of this phone. It’s very easy to use and you can create content and navigate quite easily through it.

The Motorola Droid 4 runs on Android v2.3.6 Gingerbread and on top of it you get the MOTOBLUR user interface. Quite a downer we say when leading brands are switching to Android Ice-cream Sandwich OS. However, you can upgrade to the latest version of Android OS in near future. The Droid 4 is powered by 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. It has a PowerVR SGX540 GPU. There is 1GB RAM onboard. The internal memory of the Droid 4 is 16GB and comes with an external storage capability of 32GB.

The 8MP camera of the Droid 4 is accompanied with features like autofocus and LED flash. We noticed a bluish hue in all the snapped photos. The LED flash does not do much when it comes to taking photos in dim lighting. The Droid 4 is capable of recording 1080p HD videos at 29fps. The video is not that great but audio clarity is quite good. The music player supports all known formats and comes with numerous equalizer settings. You can enjoy high resolution videos on the phone and most of the video formats including DivX and XviD formats are supported.

Thanks to the 4G LTE connectivity, you can enjoy lightning fast internet browsing experience. You will not experience slowness even when browsing heavy web pages. Flash content loads pretty fast and you get to experience top quality browsing experience. Other connectivity features include Wi-Fi, aGPS, and Bluetooth 4.0. The standard Li-Ion 1785mAh battery gives a standby time of 204 hours and talk time of over 12 hours.

What is MOTOBLUR?

Most of the recent Motorola smartphones such as Motorola DROID X, Motorola MILESTONE 2 come with MOTOBLUR user interface. Many people do not know what MOTOBLUR is. If you have noticed carefully, MOTOBLUR UI is only available on Android phones. This user interface was developed by Motorola as a replacement user interface for Android UI. It is mainly focused on increasing the social networking capabilities of the phone.

MOTOBLUR brings to you a wide range of social networking widgets such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and various RSS feeds such as weather and news updates. When you purchase a Motorola phone with the MOTOBLUR feature and turn it on, you are asked to create a MOTOBLUR account. Unless you create an account, you won’t gain access to the main screen of the phone. The account information is stored on Motorola servers. However, the newer phones all users to create the MOTOBLUR account later.

Motorola’s MOTOBLUR user interface brings updates from your friends, photos and their posts right on the homescreen which is the easiest way to view them. You do not have to go through logins and you do not have to open any apps; right from your homescreen you can do it all. Not only this, it also takes the backup of your valuable data on a continual basis. All the essential information such as contacts will backed up automatically. It even lets you make use your computer to access your phone to lock or wipe off any information from your phone securely. MOTOBLUR on GPS enabled phones lets you find your lost phone without even installing any app or doing any setup. The Battery manager helps in saving the battery life of your phone. By customizing the power consumption of your phone, it lets you cut down on your battery usage considerably. This way you can talk more through your phone without worrying about charging it.

Here are some of the MOTOBLUR enabled smartphones: Cliq 2, Bravo, Flipside, Flipout, Charm, Backflip, Cliq XT, Defy, Devour, and Cliq. Motorola has announced that they might discontinue the MOTOBLUR user interface because the recent and forthcoming versions of Android will make custom user interfaces redundant.
