Motorola DROID 5 with hardware QWERTY, 4.3QWERTY-packing smartphones may be in for a bit of a revival as photos of the Motorola DROID 5 leaked along with some specs. In the photos, the DROID 5 is next to the Motorola Photon Q and the leaked specs make it out to be a small upgrade over the old phone. The screen of the DROID 5 is clearly...

Such BS manufacturers are trying to kill off qwerty keyboard phones by giving them crap hardware specs (like this). My last qwerty phone was so bad/froze/underpowered that I had to opt for the only phone I can properly hit the correct virtual keyboard buttons with - note 2. A smaller screen than that would drive me insane with incorrect inputs all day long. THERE IS A DEMAND FOR HIGH POWERED PHYSICAL QWERTY DEVICES, MANUFACTURERS!!! LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS

They stepped out of the routine and created the Note series which surprised many. Hell, they created a Zoom variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4... what was that? Has it sold anything? I have not heard anything or anyone actually wanting this device. They have stepped out, and taken chances. Why not take this one?

They would've sold a couple, i bet you that

Miss the Qwerty touch...Typing on the screen is not as fun as QWERTY.

i.e. basically choosing to ride the android boat.. just increase screen size and number of processors, increase screen size and number of processors, increase screen size and number of processors... nothing else.

i could never understand why not one manufacturer can create at least one high end=flagship=high specs phone with a hardware qwerty... there IS a market for this device... why not make it? Samsung makes 23432904732 phones a year, why not one with a hardware qwerty?
