Description

The Motorola RAZR is the GSM version of the DROID RAZR, which proved that the company can still make sexy handsets, since it came as the thinnest smartphone around if we don't count the camera part. Kevlar, steel and aluminum accents fuse to create a handset that is a worthy successor to the extremely popular RAZR line. Add a 4.3" qHD Super AMOLED Advanced screen and a powerful dual-core chipset, and the Motorola DROID RAZR has successfully taken the RAZR paradigm to the new Android smartphone realities.

Display

  • Physical size:
    • 4.3 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 540 x 960 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 256 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
