For those dying to see the Motorola DROID RAZR HD in action, today is your lucky day. Over at YouTube, some tutorial videos for the device have leaked which means you get to see the UI, the display and the rest of the phone in action. The videos are designed to show users of the device how to handle certain features of the phone. If a picture is worth a thousand words, these videos speak volumes.
My eyes can't handle the white text on black background. I had to buy a bunch of third party apps to re-configure ICS on my RAZR to get back to black text on white background. I hope Moto provides configuration options on the RAZR HD.
Well it's not that... its just I like the ones on the Razr, how there's a space between both the screen and the edge of the device.
It sorda messes up with videos too, since a lot of developers don't hide the icons when in full screen mode... so you'll be seeing the buttons while watching a video. And then a 720p display doesn't actually have a 16:9 (or 9:16) aspect ratio because the buttons.
I just never really got used to them on Honeycomb (now ICS) on my GTab.
well, well, well, hello beautiful. I've seen both the Atrix HD and the Photon Q 4G LTE and was impressed with both of them but more so with the Photon. this should be a real Beast. can't wait to learn more about Specs and Special Features. :D

Ive had upgrade eligibility for 8 months now, almost got a RAZR MAXX. But I think this will be worth the wait, especially since motorola said they will support bootloader unlocking on all future devices.

NO im def getting this RAZR HD im set.
Photon Q.. no thanks, I only buy High-End. Im not a huge fan of sliders and I woulda made the exception but, the screen resolution does not meet my standards, and the locked/sealed SIM card is a Joke (defeats the whole purpose of having a SIM) The jury is still out on the Camera.
I already got to my training and tried one hands on. Bottom line: Photon Q is just better garbage than the original Photon. I'll pass.
I'll be in line at Verizon for the RAZR HD though cant wait.

Why would it? Pentile really isn't that noticable with such high resoltuions. Though I have heard about there being a blue or yellow tint when viewing white colors on S-Amoled, so that may be a problem. They should use ColorBoost, that's what they used for the Atrix HD and Photon Q after all.
You are partially correct, this technology was a joint venture between Sony and Samsung (50/50 ownership). But if you remember a while back, Sony sold their ownership to Samsung making them the Sole proprietor of S-LCD.
However, it was never 100% Sonys, but since all Sony phones have S-LCDs and Samsung uses AMOLED, I can see how that can be assumed.

Looks nice... Man, it would be so disappointing if this were to only have an S4 and 1 GB of RAM. At least match it up with the GS3 Moto. Or let it come out with JB out of the box, that would be a nice trade-off I suppose.

388 ppi? That means you won't be able to see about 80 of the pixels that are in every inch. People don't seem to realize, the average human eye can't see pixels past 300ppi, so you really can't tell the difference between 300 or 450 ppi. You're graphics are just working harder to push pixels you can't even see, which is useless.

Dude, zooming defeats the whole purpose of more PPI. 388 is rediculous dont you get it. Have you even looked at an iPhone retina? you have to squint and hold it like 6 inches from your face to see the itty bitty letters.
Gaming at 388 would need a serious graphics chip and huge battery (not to mention thermal issues like the iPad3)

All merges together 400ppi. PVR sgx 543mp8 or a Mali 400mp8 gpu overclocked to 577ghz along with
1580-1020 resolution will be the stuff of dreams.. withalong side air vents
on side of the phone, so it cools down.

Look, you completely missed my point. At 388ppi, you wouldn't be able to even see those extra 88 pixels. Why would you waste graphics power and battery life of pixels you can't even see? Its pointless.
all HTC did was beat Moto to the market with a next gen handset, Moto's first next gen handset in the states was the Atrix HD which matches the One X, yeah, Samsung barely beats Motorola in specs, Motorola's OMAP4 devices were barely under Samsung's Exynos 4210 powered devices the OMAP4 powered devices offered LTE support but i still gave Samsung the win and the One X benches better than the US SIII variants now explain to me how what i said was wrong.

The Original Evo, when it came out (in its time) totally beat everything that motorola had out. It wasnt till the RAZR that Moto surpassed HTC but even then Samsung had better specs. Even Right Now the entire HTC ONE line (including the EVO LTE) are better.
KingKurogiii I kno your a Moto fan but cmon, dont be too obsessed there is healthy competition out there.

That's true, the One series is better than Moto's line-up currently. But here's the thing, the One Series is HTC's flagships for the year. Moto hasn't gotten their flagship out yet. Yes, the One X and S beat the Razr, but the Razr is Moto's flagship for LAST year. When they get the Razr HD out, Moto will be on top of HTC again

Im sure they will. No doubt that with all the changes Google is making at Motorola they will very likely even beat Samsung. But at the moment, both the GS3 and HTC One have better Specs and I know this may ruffle some feathers but Even Sony has some good specs that can compete with Moto's CURRENT line up.
My comment was in response to KingK that claimed HTC has never beat Motorola in specs, which, according to your comment, you agree, so thanks for backing me up.
well that's not what i meant. when they were released don't matter so much as when they were relevant. the phones that Motorola puts out to compete with companies like HTC and Samsung usually puts them in second place due to their use of OMAP SoCs which until recently were always ahead of the curb from Snapdragons.
if that's the kind of comparison you want to do then last year HTC was doing just as bad by not having a dual-core handset like Motorola had the Atrix 4G at he time and the Tegra II is way better than the S2 and the Hummingbird. same kind of comparison, different time frame. see how ridiculous it is?
i'm not biased but i like Motorola for a reason. maybe you missed the parts where i put Motorola second in terms of specs next to Samsung because of FACT. i just have a carefully thought out idea of who is the best in terms of specs. if Samsung made phones with better build quality, better reliability in terms of wireless reception and a UI that has more in common with Stock Android then guess what? i'd have a Samsung.

Dude you are TOTALLY biased. are you kidding? Every Motorola article you are ALL over it glorifying MOTO.
I even told you how I cant wait for the RAZR HD, but for some reason nobody can say anything good about HTC???
Why is it so hard for you to accept that the HTC One series is clearly better, EVERYBODY knows it its not even up for debate. If you were truly unbiased you would say something more along the lines: "Yes the HTC ONE is currently a better phone, however, I beleive the RAZR HD will beat it and HTC wont respond with a better phone for a while"
but saying "HTC has never had better specs" is the whole reason we are having this discussion.
why would the One X be better?
i mean i like Motorola more but in terms of anything that's not subjective HTC isn't really offering anything more compelling than anybody else out there. i mean i said it was faster than the US SIII, what more do you want from me?
