Motorola takes its fourth shot at the Droid that started it all with the Droid 4. For the QWERTY keyboard seeker, there's a lot to like about this LTE 4G smartphone for Verizon Wireless.

Motorola's "Droid" phones have always been about offering the best of both worlds: a touch screen and a real, physical keyboard on an Android device. The fourth-generation Droid lands on Verizon's network and is the best version yet, thanks to a wholly redesigned keyboard. For those who need real keys, the Droid 4 is likely to make you a more prolific mobile messenger. Here's why.

"That's a huge gap"

"but there is a bit too much space/air between the two halves of the phone. Held sideways up to my eyes like a pair of binoculars, I could read the text on my computer screen from several feet away through the phone. That's a huge gap."

Let me surmise why that might be.

For example, on my LG enV Touch (first and LAST LG anything) ... without a screen protector on the inside display, overtime, with the phone close, the keyboard will create small impressions on the inside screen ... as evident by the impressions on the screen protector, without which, they would be on the screen!

So, the gap you are referring to may be to prevent this, w/o out the need for a screen protector - at least for that purpose.

There's no inside screen though, the screen on all droids never comes in contact with the keyboard.
