Motorola DROID 4 unboxing
Donning that typical packaging design akin to the DROID series, it doesn’t necessarily have the same luster as before seeing its metallic-like appearance has been overdone – and by overdone, we mean to the point excessive. Sure it features a DROID eye wielding image of the handset on its front and back sides, but as a whole, it lacks the allure to justify itself as something from a prominent line in the Android family. Moreover, there’s nothing out of the ordinary included with the device inside of the box, which consists of its usual set of documentation, microUSB cable, and wall charger. Interestingly, there’s one particular accessory included that catches us off guard. Regarded as the “removal tool,” it reminds us of the iPhone’s SIM card slot removal tool, but instead, it enables us to remove its rear cover.
Even before trying out the removal tool, we managed to get its back cover off completely with enough force – making us wonder why it’s even necessary to have the tool. Yet another surprise to us, its 1,785 mAh battery is not removable by the user, which is blatantly made known by the sticker covering everything. We won’t go into the specifics about the handset, seeing we’ve had plenty of time checking it out back at CES, but worth noting is the glowing landscape QWERTY keyboard that seems to somehow improve upon the design and layout of last year’s model. Certainly, we’re itching to play with this one, even with its less than premium feel. Don’t worry, we’ll have our in-depth review shortly! We promise!

people were probably complaining about getting the back off the Droid 3, it was a bitch to get off until you wore it down over time.

wow! non-removable battery? whyyy!? that actually takes a few points from this phone for me as a saw it as a significant advantage over the Razr. I also see this is running 2.3.6 out of the box.

Disappointed at the plastic sound it makes...

Dude. They included the removal tool for a reason. If you keep taking the cover off by brute force, you'll wear out the connector that locks it into place.

"qHD resolution is decent...we can see some things with it."
"SOME THINGS"? qHD on a 4 inch screen is excellent..and you can sure as hell see more than "some things" on it! You made it sound like the resolution is VGA or something...
