Pros Very Fast. This is my first android based smartphone (coming from a blackberry curve), and I'm impressed with all the customization features and the speed. Internet works great as well, even with your regular 3g network. Great video and pictures.
Cons The only problem I've had with this phone is it does have kind of a weak battery, and it's non-replaceable. That's a real bummer. I get through my day (7am-11pm) at a moderate usage and it needs its charger by 11pm.
Summary Overall, I love this phone. All the great apps, awesome features, fluid movement between menus and great picture and video, plus the physical keyboard (pretty back light too) make up for the somewhat lacking battery. Also on the topic of batteries, what's with the ridiculously short charging cable? Maybe they have a longer after market one, but I wish Motorola had their cable a little longer stock. Anyway if at least it had only had a changeable battery i'd be giving it a 5 star rating.
Pros Physical Keyboard
Cons Motorola does a solid job on the hardware, the Motorola software is lacking.
Summary The best option if you want a physical keyboard from verizon.
Pros Keyboard is the best ever.
Cons Same old lackluster screen, bulky, blocky, thick
Summary Motorola and Samsung should get together and creat a really great physical keyboard slider. Samsung did a great job with the Stratosphere, its asthetics are SOOOO much better than the clunky Droid 4. Yes the Droid 4 looks like a smaller version of the Razor, also a clunky square phone but its uninspiring. The keyboard is great, one of the best, I must say but thats about it. So if you're willing to spend $200 bucks for a little keyboard on a Droid X screen with 4G then knock yourself out. I'll pass.
Pros Swift - Dual Core and fast processor make a big difference.
4G LTE is a wonderful improvement--but a battery hog.
Key Pad is well made and operates smoothly.
Good screen, albeit no AMOLED.
UI seems better than I am used to.
Cons BATTERY IS NOT SUFFICIENT FOR INTENSIVE USE. After just a couple of hours, you can SEE the battery level declining. It will not last a full day for me.
There is a little "play" between keyboard and screen. It is obnoxious.
Summary Unless QWERTY is your personal divinity, "this is not the Droid you are looking for".I had one. The battery was not removable. A "pin" like tool is given with the unit, but only to remove the battery COVER. The battery itself is NOT removable. I SWALLOWED THE SAME STORY: "removable battery". NOT SO. I confirmed this with tech.s on phone and also when I swapped it out for a RazrMaxx.
Razr Maxx rocks.

This deficit is unacceptable to a power user.
