No Spring-assist slider

This phone looks very nice. I've been in a Verizon store and reviewed this phone in person. I am not a big fan of the curvy design, and it is too plain looking (the LG Spectrum looks much better in comparison), and it is a bit thick - which is expected for a phone with a full keyboard, hope it will help for longer battery life as well - but otherwise it looks very good.

Especially the keyboard has a great feel when typing, although there should be more space between the keys.

But what bothers me very much is the slider mechanism. There is no "spring assist" - unlike every other slider phone on the market - which makes the Droid 4 sliding up and down cumbersome, and does not provide the quality feel that I tend to expect from such a hig...
I have seen several forums where people complain about the lack of spring assist, but I just don't get it.

My Touch Pro2 had a spring-assisted slider, and my new Droid 4 does not, but it is super-easy to slide open and closed, and I do it with one ...
I recently upgraded from a Droid 2 to a Droid 4. The lack of spring assist is for a reason. Spring assited sliders have one major flaw, and that is no long lasting durability. Over time, through excessive use, any spring will eventually lose it's "spr...

Micro-USB chargers

My Droid 4 came with a wall charger that has 5.1 volts and 850mAmp output via a micro-USB cable plugged into it. That cable can be removed and plugged into a computer to charge as well.

I have a charger from my old HTC Touch Pro2 that has 5 volts and 1000mAmp output via a mini-USB cable that plugs into the charger.

If I buy a micro-USB cable and plug that into the HTC charger, will it work with my Droid 4 to charge it SAFELY?

Googling this issue raises doubts that Moto is behaving with any "standard" micro-USB being able to charge their phones.
Yes, it will work. The voltage is key - the phone will only draw as many mAmps as necessary but if it's insufficient, it won't charge at all. 0.1 volts seems more than in tolerance for a phone to charge.

CDMA support

Sad was hopiong this would be a global ready phone (GSM). phone has SIM slot. Am genuinely disappointed.
Check the News tab above. There is GSM capability, and Verizon confirmed that they plan to enable it at a later date. Phone Scoop broke that news. Smile

With that said, in general, all LTE phones have a SIM slot. So when it comes to LTE phones, a SI...
