Motorola Droid Razr Review
28 May 2012
Excerpt: THE MARKETING BLITZ swirling around the Droid Razr’s launch drive home these twin selling points: thin, yet powerful. This wafer of a smartphone measures just over a quarter of an inch thick along most of its chassis before filling out at the top where the camera lens and flash; speaker; and HDMI, USB, and headphone jacks reside.
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.
Summary: The Droid RAZR is one of those rare phones that qualifies as a leap forward in hardware design and engineering. Sure, other handsets have higher-resolution displays and faster processors, but only the Droid RAZR squeezes a full set of competitive state-of-the-art specs and an LTE radio into a body just .28-inches thick — a profile thinner than any other modern smartphone available.
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
Conclusion: While we don’t actually know the price for the Prada Phone by LG 3.0, we know it’s going to be high – quite a lot higher than the most expensive mainstream Android phone, actually. But I don’t see why anyone would choose it over the Droid RAZR (or the Galaxy Nexus, for that matter, but that’s another talk) – with the same overall performance, more hardware features, better display and a great and durable design, the RAZR can easily compete with the LG Prada Phone –...
Conclusion: There's a lot to like about the Droid RAZR, but there are also a few drawbacks. We really like the thin design of the device and the fact that it's significantly lighter than many of today's phones. We also love the gorgeous 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced qHD display that offers a resolution of 540 x 960. Some of the durability features built into the Droid RAZR are also very nice.
Pros: 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced qHD (540 x 960) display, Thin and lightweight design, 4G connectivity
Cons: No user-replaceable battery, No Android 4.0—yet, Battery life is a bit of a mixed bag
Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX review: Verizon’s smartest smartphone is still a tough sell
The Boy Genius Report
21 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: Motorola’s DROID RAZR takes two of Motorola’s most successful phones series and merges them together. In particular, the DROID RAZR brings the prowess of the DROID series and ...
Pros: Very unique aluminum design with Kevlar back; 4G LTE and dual-core powered, large 4.3″ AMOLED display; plenty of business chops and available accessories; does a good job of handling both social media and important business features.
Cons: Subpar battery life; mediocre camera; PenTile display; body is a bit of a grease magnet; battery is not removable.
