Motorola RAZR2 V9m Verizon Review

The Motorola Razr2 V9m is the newest addition to the popular Razr line for Verizon, which is also being sold by Sprint, Alltel, and US Cellular. Other variations include the HSDPA V9 for AT&T and GSM V8 for T-Mobile. The Razr2 is a completely new design, with aspects taken from the original Razr V3, Krzr, and Maxx Ve. The V9m is designed to give an emotional response from the consumer, with its large external display, fashionable high-luster stainless steal construction, and super thin body. Despite the phone being quite stylish, we felt that Motorola spent too much time on the “look” of the phone and not enough time on the “features”. Because of this, we believe the V9m to be only a slight upgrade from the Maxx Ve.

The Retail Package includes the Razr2 V9m Phone, 770 mAh Battery, Wall Charger, 2.5mm-to-MicroUSB Adapter, and User Manual.

which hightech junkie would want this? There's nothing high-tech about it, quite the opposite actually! Good review though! Reinforces my opinion that the V9 is not a phone for me! Thanks Phonearena! :D

yah, you are proly one of those people who went out and bought and iphone for $600. The Razr 2 has 3G, MMS, a music player that supports many formats, a micro SD card slot, crystal talk, an external touch screen, excellent design quality, aGPS, WAP 2.0, bluetooth 2.0. I mean, what more could u possibly want? The phone is stacked, and for $150 on verizon right now, it is a steal! I would like to see what you object about this phone so much, and it is the V9m, not the V9..

This is the kind of review I was looking for before I bought mine in September of 07. I lucked out and I went ahread and bought it, and I am very pleased. Of course, mine is flashed with native Motorola firmware and I must say this fully debunks the comment above mine, it was just a case of Verizon crippling.
