Well look at what we have here. It appears as though just a day before its official unveiling that the faster, thinner, smarter, and stronger Motorola DROID RAZR leaked temporarily on the manufacturer’s teaser site, all but confirming its appearance…

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

This would be just THAT much better if it had ICS but oh well. I still feel bad for Bionic owners, not only did they have to wait 6-7 months for it to finally come out but only 2 months later is it's successor lol.

Meet the REAL Droid X 2, with proper LTE.

It ain't pretty, but it's uniquely Motorola.

My friend bought Bionic 2 weeks ago I should told him wait but he needed a new phone, now is too late for Razr.

The Bionic is still a great device. This phone's only real seeming advantage will be its thinness. Just saying.

And if the rumors are correct, a superior screen, which counts for half the user experience in my book.

I've actually gotten used to the Pentile on my Atrix. I only really notice the pixelation if I look for it anymore. Color reproduction is extremely sharp though.

But that's the point... if you buy a top of the line phone like the Bionic, you shouldn't have to "get used to" anything. If I'm paying $300, I shouldn't have to compromise.

Just admit it, Moto fans - a 4.3" PenTile LCD was a bad idea.

I agree I did not like the pixilation on the Bionic. I'm hopping the RAZR will have a noticeably less pixilated screen.

If the rumors of water resistance are true I'm picking it up with out a doubt.

Okay, fair enough. I was a little disappointed with the Pentile display on the Atrix at first too. And if I had to pay 300 bucks for a phone I wouldn't want to feel like I just stepped back a year and a half in screen tech. I believe there were some behind the scenes advantages to Pentile though, which may be why Motorola experimented with it this year. Clearly if they're dropping it for future phones they're paying attention to customer feedback.

It's not even just that, but it's SUPER AMOLED on a qHD display. That has never been done before and it will make a huge advantage. Super Amoled is gorgeous, even if it's not "plus" its still soooooo much better than normal LCD displays.

And from what I understand, it also has a overlocked processor at 1.2ghz which is what 20 some percent faster?

And again, it'll be the first LTE phone that isnt a brick and even compared to non LTE phones, it is still very thin.

So yea kuds to Motorola for stepping it up and basically saying "we are sorry for the huge delay with the Bionic, here's something now and much better"


NOW with that said, if you are already over your 14 day period with your Bionic(im sorry!) it's still a decent phone for sure. But if you have not gotten a Bionic or are still under the 14 day period. Then return it and wait to get this one.

BESIDES ITS THE SECOND COMING OF THE RAZR. The most popular name in cell phones PERIOD.

the thinness, the Kevlar body, the possible OMAP4460 and the SA qHD display. i would've rather spent my $300 on the RAZR than the Bionic which just came out less than a month ago. T-T

Exactly what I'm saying. The RAZR has every advantage over the Bionic and will probably be the same price, if not cheaper.

I've always liked Motorola's design aesthetics. Sure, they're not traditionally pretty, but they have character. It's like a girl who has a nose that's just a smidge too long, but has deep, lovely eyes and a beautiful smile.

This phone looks like it'll be kickass, a worthy sub for the SGS2 for Verizon. I just hope they don't overprice it. Sell it for 250 tops.

I like the design. If it wasn't for the superior features and immediate ICS of the Droid Prime (plus google will probably subsidize the cost a bit) I'd consider this harder. The Slimness, LTE, the water resistance, seems like a really nice phone overall.

Ah yes, right. Thank you. :) the release of the DROID Razr won't make the Bionic an automatic s**t sandwich. I agree. :)

but it'll still make you sick if you paid the same $300 for it that the RAZR will cost.

Although great indeed an event.. VW is going to have a great lineup of Android devices..let us not forget...HTC Rezound/Vigor....Nexus Prime with. ICS...those will be heavy hitters to contend with...going to be hard choices to make for all.

Hell, if we can kick the flame wars in the ass and keep them to a minimum, that'll be fantastic.
