Motorola Droid Razr Review
28 May 2012
Summary: It connects the Razr to your networked PC wirelessly, so you can stream media or transfer files to and from your phone from anywhere. If you like a large display, the Droid Razr gives you a whole lotta smartphone with little downside. While the $300 price tag (with contract) sits at the high end, healthy competition all but ensures that deals will be available sooner rather than later.
Pros: Excellent, large display; high-end CPU and graphics; 32GB memory; 4G LTE with mobile hotspot capability.
Cons: Nonremovable battery; occasional bugs; small buttons and large frame make for difficult one-handed use.
Excerpt: In the third quarter of 2004 Motorola made history by releasing the most popular flip phone which took the world by storm. Thin, with sharp lines, this clamshell device would become a fashion icon and sell more than 130 million units in it’s four year lifespan. That devices was the Motorola RAZR. Several variations of the RAZR would follow but none of them would match the original in sales.
Prada Phone by LG 3.0 vs Motorola Droid RAZR – not much difference in style, a wide gap in price
3 January 2012
Excerpt: Just a few days ago, Prada and LG announced another result of their partnership – the Prada Phone by LG 3.0 smartphone (yes, I know it’s a mouthful). You may remember their first two phones, the first of which had a capacitive display before the iPhone (but no smart OS to speak of). Well, the third one is a full-fledged smartphone, packing power and running Android inside a beautiful housing. But is it worth the premium cost?
Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX review: Verizon’s smartest smartphone is still a tough sell
The Boy Genius Report
25 December 2011
Conclusion: The DROID RAZR MAXX features solid, attractive hardware and Motorola’s Smart Actions feature makes it one of the smartest smartphones I’ve ever used. Even still, I can’t in good conscience recommend this device when Verizon Wireless offers the Samsung Galaxy Nexus at the same $299.99 price point.
Pros: The most obvious benefit of the DROID RAZR MAXX compared to similar smartphones is the battery. It is nothing short of an engineering feat that Motorola managed to pack a 3,300 mAh battery into this fantastically slim smartphone. To stress just how remarkable this accomplishment is, consider this: the battery in the RAZR MAXX is 32% larger than the battery in Samsung’s humongous Galaxy Note smartphone, which is significantly larger than the RAZR at 5.78 x 3.27 x 0.38-...
Cons: I won’t mince words here: I don’t like Motorola’s Android UI at all. One of several benefits the Android platform has over rivals such as iOS, BlackBerry OS and Windows Phone is choice. Whereas users of each of the aforementioned operating systems will see nearly identical user experiences regardless of which handset they choose, Android fans enjoy a number of options. There are pure Google phones like the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus, several HTC devices utilize the firm...
Excerpt: The battle for “World’s Thinnest” presses on with the release of Motorola’s latest flagship. Resurrecting the name of a phone that became an icon, the RAZR is back, but aside from the name, it bears little resemblance to the phone-in-skinny-jeans of 2004. The new RAZR, or the XT910 as Motorola define it, is an Android slate measuring a trim 7.1mm at its thinnest point, handily eclipsing the Galaxy S II’s now portly 8.49mm figure.
Summary: The Droid RAZR ; a name that both excites and worries us. The old clamshell RAZR was once a great phone that set the bar for all feature phones of its time. But a reluctance by Motorola to move on from the basic shape cast them into near bankruptcy as each and every new phone became a simple repeat of the last. Now many years later the “RAZR” name is back with an indistinguishable face and a feature set that demands respect.
LG Nitro HD vs Motorola Droid RAZR – internal specs are the same, but the design is very different
19 December 2011
Conclusion: On the inside, things are more or less equal between the two phones. Both of them have the usual collection of hardware features, including GPS, Wifi N, Bluetooth EDR, HDMI out via separate ports, 3.5mm audio jack, DLNA, an assortment of sensors, and of course a 4G LTE radio (which drains the battery pretty damn quickly on both of them, as well) and two cameras – an 8 megapixels unit on the back and a 1.3 megapixels front facing camera, on each device.
