Review: Motorola Droid 4 for Verizon Wireless
The Droid 4 treads well-worn ground in the messaging department. Everything it offers, you've seen before on other phones. Stock Gmail, email, GTalk, and SMS tools are available and all do as fine as job as they have ever done.
The Droid 4 includes Verizon Wireless's generic instant messaging application. It supports AOL, Windows Live, and Yahoo. It's a decent little client, and offers the same user interface across IM networks so that you have a consistent experience no matter which one you happen to be using.
The biggest differentiator the Droid 4 has going for it when compared to Android handsets from HTC, Samsung, and LG is the Motorola-made widgets. There's a widget for updating your IM status; a catch-all social networking widget that lets you check Twitter and Facebook feeds from the home screen; a social status widget for updating your own status to Twitter and Facebook...you get the idea. There are also Google-made widgets for Latitude and Social Location. The social widget isn't too bad, and updates to both Facebook and Twitter flowed in smoothly.
