Motorola RAZR Review

0. phoneArena 15 Nov 2011, 09:46 posted on

The company obviously banks on the iconic RAZR brand from times past, which received cult status with its game changing sharp looks and razor-thin profile. The Motorola RAZR of today carries the design tradition with its 7.1 mm waistline, and the exotic materials used for the chassis, like Kevlar. Are these enough for the Motorola RAZR to lure the spoiled smartphone shoppers, which have an excellent smartphone crop this holiday season? Read on to find out…

It's a ready made garbage
It doesn't have anything
Not even the google play
Unjustified rating PA
It must get 6 or something

Is this not EXACTLY the same as the one you reviewed a fey days ago?

But yes, this is probably the nest unlocked GSM smartphone you can buy until the Galaxy Nexus will arrive.

Yeah that was what I was thinking, I thought the Motorola Razr was a Verizon exclusive? I guess the Motorola "Droid" Razr is the one that's exclusive to Verizon. So it's good to know other carriers will have the Razr just like other carriers will have the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

"If you've read our DROID RAZR review, you wouldn't really need to read this one. Especially if you are in the States."

"The GSM version of Verizon’s DROID RAZR is called simply the Motorola RAZR, and is identical, except for the baseband radio, which allows it to work on AT&T and T-Mobile (2G only) in the US."

I hope those quotes from the article clear things up.

The second point in the list of cons is true for Android as a whole, even in dual core league (save few handsets)!! XD

im actually surprised it didnt get hit harder for the sub par camera.. as much as people use their phones as camera replacements, thats getting to be a pretty big issue. oh well, still looks like a darn solid device over all. :)

I don't know why but I can never find a smartphone review that looks OBJECTIVELY at the battery life. I really wish someone would come up with a range of battery tests. Do something like minimum battery life (brightness 50% using only 3G/4G streaming video) and then a real world test where its something like web browsing for 10 minutes at a time then 50 minutes idle until dead.

I bought the RAZR yesterday and coming from a DROID X... I loved my X but wanted a new phone, Thw RAZR feels way to wide and the text and stuff on the screen seems smaller and harder to read. Does anyone know if this is the same with the BIONIC??? Or a good phone they recommend?

Stuff is smaller cuz of the higher resolution.

If you have a PC, increase the resolution on your monitor and watch stuff shrink on screen.

How can you say it looks boring. It's the thinnest model out there. We are finally given a phone that doesn't look like all the other phones and it's boring?? The OS is terribad?? The OS is solid and very quick. I know, I have one.

Do you even have one, or are you just spewing whatever comes to your mind?

I've had Blackberrys, iphone 3gs, iphone 4, Droid X2, and now the Motorola Razr. By far, the Razr out performs all of them. The Razr is fast, smooth, and very good looking.

I finally found the phone I am content with. Nice job Motorola.
