The first nice thing we noticed when testing out the smartphone's 8-megapixel camera is that the app launches very fast, even from a cold start. A single press of the dedicated camera button brings forth the interface in well under a second, allowing one to capture a photo almost instantly. In burst mode, 10 consecutive full-resolution images can be captured in about a second, which is really fast for a smartphone camera. Moreover, the software is intelligent enough to let the user know whether switching to HDR mode (high dynamics range) would be a good idea, and as our sample shots can prove, HDR photos taken with the Motorola RAZR i look quite presentable.

But as a whole, the quality of the photos is nothing extraordinary. Let's say that images look okay, as long as you don't zoom in on them all the way to 100%, as that is when all the graininess and absence of fine details get noticeable. The quality of the 1080p video that the smartphone can capture is identical – smooth as it runs at 30 frames per second, yet somewhat grainy at the same time.

Multimedia:

Listening to your favorite tunes is done using the Google Play Music app, which is the default Android 4.0 audio player. All in all, the app is decent as it is full of cool features, such as the ability to stream music you've uploaded to the cloud or purchased via Google Music (available only in the U.S. right now). You also get an equalizer with a bunch of presets, a bass booster and a stereo enhancer. Of course, lock screen controls and a home-screen widget come standard.

With support for 1080p videos and a 16:9 aspect ratio display of such size, watching videos and movies on the Motorola RAZR i is a pleasant experience. The stock video player can handle any popular video file format and codec, including DivX, H.264, and QuickTime, while being able to rewind and fast-forward instantly even when watching 1080p video.
