Motorola RAZR V XT889

Motorola announced a pair of new handsets for China Telecom, but it is one model in particular that is attracting attention, the Motorola RAZR V XT889. No, it is not the 4.3 inch screen that is capturing the stares; these days a 4.3 inch display is common, unlike the older days when the HTC HD2's 4.3 inch screen was blowing minds. And no, the 8MP camera on back isn't extraordinary, especially when Google's wholly owned subsidiary has already shipped handsets to the region with 13MP shooters. So what is it about the design of the Motorola RAZR V XT889 that has construction workers whistling at it? Hint: It isn't the Kevlar back which has become a trademark for the line.

First, there is the sharper corners on the device, unlike the rounded ones seen in past models. Additionally, the glass screen does not cover the entire front of the model. The glass stops well before reaching the top and the bottom of the unit, revealing a grill for the earpiece. What do you MotoDroid fans think of this new look? Simply type your comment in the box below. By the way, the device launches in China on June 15th with Android 4.0 already already installed out of the box.

It looks like the Bionic. I prefer the looks of the RAZR.

Looks definitely like an upgraded Bionic design.

+1 for preferring the look of the RAZR. I hope this isn't the trend for the RAZR HD.

Looks interesting, but at the same time it looks rather large as in larger than the Razr Maxx which makes no sense unless that phone has a larger screen. Motorola needs to find a way to keep their solid construction with a design that maximizes as much screen space as possible no need to get larger than the Razr Maxx, possibly an aspect ratio witch to the width of the SGSII series would be nice.

The kind of audio quality this thing should pump out with a speaker that big would make the size worth it if indeed it is bigger than the xt910/912

Even China gets the RAZR. I'm still mad that VERIZON is the only carrier that carries the RAZR and Motorola won't put it on AT&T/Sprint nor T-Mobile.

Looks like a DX with less usable screen space... so, not sure why this is a big deal?? Besides ICS out of the box, it looks / sounds midrange for today's standards. Personally I think the RAZR looks better.

Approved! Now come with a better camera, screen, 2gb of ram, and quad-core TI chip and I will sell my soul lol.

Way too much bezel. I want a slab of nothing but screen... 4.3" would be fine if it was HD and was to the edge of the phone.

Good looks? It looks like a black rectangle. Which is about what 99% of all phones look like now... okay, maybe a little lower percentage number if you change the color to white or cyan or pebble blue.
Either way, it's a rectangular brick because that's the form factor that works.

Also, if that's a 4.3" display, then that phone is pretty damn big. Look at the huge bezel space.
