I would. Spec wise, it's just a huge leap forward. 4G, 1GB RAM, dual core, bigger screen and better keyboard. I could go on. In a perfect world, I would've kept the original Droid, but the hardware just can't keep up with the leaps in software sometimes.
d1<d4 .....the og droid is getting dated.. 600 mhz vs 1200mhz dual core...
d2 if running a custom rom>d4
going from a d2 to a d4 isnt that big of an upgrade unless you can get 4glte in you area. would i do it? no unless you have the 2 year upgrade... its not worth more than 200.

So do you think its worth going from a droid 2 to the droid 4?
Outside the "gee I got a new toy," I haven't seen any real difference in performance (yet.)
Of course, most of my "unproductive labor" is spent trying to put all the apps back in the "right" place.
The keyboard feels sightly larger and of course they moved things around a bit so you will have to pay attention (I only had a droid 2 for about 2 years so I got into some habits that aren't one for one with the 4)
Over the next few days I will be syncing contacts with my cars, re-pairing keyboards and headsets, finding new docking stations, holsters,etc...standard stuff.
I am not sure of the tradeoff between bigger screen and larger phone. Time will tell on that. Sometimes it feels like I am back in the early 90s as the phones keep getting bigger...othertimes my poor eyes are thankful!
Someone (I think it was VZW) preloaded a bunch of apps that I will have to go thru and purge as needed.
So, is it worth it???? So far..no..but ask again in a month!!!
The Motorola Droid 4 will be the fourth entry into Verizon and Motorola's Droid lineup. Following in the footsteps of previous models, the phone will feature a slide-out five-row QWERTY keyboard (most resembling that of the Droid 3). Other spec... Read More
