Review: Motorola Droid 4 for Verizon Wireless

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  2  

Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

The Droid 4 uses the same set up we've seen on previous Android devices from Motorola. The phone application itself is a stock Android calling tool. Motorola uses some new colors to spruce it up a little, but in-call features are unaltered from stock Android, and are simple to use.

The main contact application is stock Android, but Motorola installed its cool home screen widget for your favorites. At the top of the central home panel, you'll notice four empty boxes at the top, with what appear to be other boxes stacked behind them. These are your contact favorites. Drag the set of boxes down, and the stacks will open up to show you a grid of your top 20 contacts, complete with photo ID. Tap the photo of your contact, and it will open a drop-down menu that offers a handful of quick actions, such as calling them, messaging them, or sending them a Facebook message.

As with any Android device, you can set up shortcuts to contacts directly on the home screen panels.
