Motorola Droid RAZR Review
Simple Mobile Review
16 November 2011
Excerpt: OK, let’s get this out of the way right up front: This phone is so thin it could almost double for a letter-opener. I have to admit that I had my worries that I would break the device in half, […]
Motorola Droid RAZR Reviewed: Cutting Edge of Android?
15 November 2011
Excerpt: Motorola pulled up their bootstraps and made it out of the trenches when they first released the RAZR in 2004. They did it again with the Droid series through Verizon. Now they've merged the two to form the Droid RAZR. Will it succeed just the same?
Conclusion: No doubt, the Motorola Droid RAZR on Verizon is one of the most unique and sexy phones we've seen. And despite its extreme thinness, it's strong with the help of a metal frame, Corning Gorilla Glass and a Kevlar back. But it's a wide phone, and I suggest that you fondle one in person unless you have large mitts. The phone might be too wide for comfort for those who have smaller to average size hands.
Pros: Super-slim, sexy and unique design. Great quality materials, excellent voice.
Cons: Non-removable battery and LTE weren't meant to be together.
Conclusion: If you like it’s looks and size, the Motorola Droid Razr is a great option for those on the hunt for a powerful, fully-featured smartphone this holiday season. With a dual-core processor, a big colorful Super AMOLED screen, good battery life, 4G LTE connectivity, and a thin profile, it’s a great option. The only thing we don’t know is how it will compare to the Galaxy Nexus.
Pros: Thin design, Good battery life, Bright Super AMOLED screen, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) coming by early 2012, Verizon's 4G LTE network rocks
Cons: Design is logo heavy, Power and volume buttons are small, NinjaBlur interface is lifeless, Smart Actions and MotoCast need work, Camera is weak
Conclusion: The RAZR is a good phone. It is also an incredibly thin phone. But it is not a small phone. People with small hands will find the 4.3″ display feels larger than the spec sheet would claim, meaning simple actions such as hopping between a the on-screen keyboard and hopping to the top of the display to tap a button will often end up being a miniature juggling show.
Droid RAZR vs Galaxy S2 – Motorola exceeds expectations on every front
9 November 2011
Conclusion: The Droid RAZR certainly matches and even outmatches the Galaxy S2, which is impressive considering it’s a Motorola device, and it can definitely replace it as the flagship phone, especially if Motorola does the marketing right. I think the RAZR is even better than the new Galaxy Nexus, and with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it will be one of the best high end smartphones for a long time.
Conclusion: Bringing us back to memory lane, there's no arguing that the original Motorola RAZR was an iconic device that's seemingly forever ingrained into our minds, but on top of that, it showed us the kind of ingenuity behind Motorola. As the story goes, the RAZR eventually exhausted its ride, but Motorola managed to reignite that fire with the original Motorola DROID from a couple years ago.
Pros: Stand-out design, materials and build quality, Clear calling quality, 4G LTE connectivity with great speeds, Motorola Webtop functionality and microHDMI
Cons: Not running Android 4.0 ICS out of the box, Screen is great, but with so-so pixel density, Camera and camcorder are not top-notch
Conclusion: There's plenty to like about the DROID RAZR. The display is superb, performance is swift and Motorola's commitment to Ice Cream Sandwich is, in these times of Android fragmentation, welcome. Although thanks to the "hump" Motorola's thinness claims aren't entirely true, the DROID RAZR is certainly slim and easy to pocket. Unfortunately, like the original RAZR, there are also compromises made to achieve a slimline package.
The Droid RAZR is a legitimate feat of hardware engineering — but is it your next phone?
7 November 2011
Summary: So is the Droid RAZR worth Motorola’s marketing blitz? Is it the phone to get? Well, probably not. While the hardware engineering required to stuff the internals of the Bionic into the thinnest smartphone design on the market is nothing short of amazing, the compromise on display quality needed to get there simply isn’t worth it.
