Review: Motorola Droid 4 for Verizon Wireless
The Droid 4 is crammed full of apps. There are 62 installed out of the box. That's absolutely ludicrous. You can get rid of some of them, but not all of them. A significant number of them are Motorola or Verizon-branded apps. The Motorola apps aren't so bad, such as the MOTOACTV application, which lets it pair with the MOTOACTV watch/MP3 player and fitness tool, or MOTOPRINT, which lets you print via Wi-Fi to networked printers.Bluetooth
The Droid 4's Bluetooth radio connects to phones, headsets, PCs, and speakers. I had no trouble pairing it with half a dozen different pieces of equipment. Phone calls placed through my car sounded really good, as did music played through Bluetooth stereo speakers. It works, and that's what we want.Clock
The Droid 4 has a large digital clock that's easily seen when the lock key is pressed. It is positioned in the top-left corner of the screen, and thanks to the good outdoor visibility of the Droid 4's screen, it is easy to tell the time no matter where you happen to be. The Droid 4 also has a clock widget for use on the home screen panels. This widget is widely customizable, but the lock screen clock is not.

The Droid 4 includes both Google Maps and VZNavigator. Both are capable navigation apps. Google Maps is easy to use, and ties in well to other Google services, such as Latitude and Places. VZNavigator doesn't do that, and costs $10 per month to use. VZNavigator's GPS performance is a little bit better and more accurate in my experience and better at handling dynamic traffic conditions. The Droid 4's GPS performance was good, and it was consistently able to locate me to within 10 meters in less than 30 seconds.
