Motorola Droid RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD review
22 October 2012
Excerpt: Last year, Motorola relaunched its RAZR brand with a pair of new smartphones, the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR Maxx for Verizon Wireless. While the resurrected RAZRs impressed with solid build quality and remarkable thinness (for the time, at least), they were saddled with disappointing displays and...
Pros: Bright display, Good battery life, Minimal software tweaks, Bright display, Great battery life, Minimal software tweaks
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,...
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: Boasting one of the strongest batteries of the bunch (12.5 hours of talk time and 8.5 days of standby, according to Motorola), the Droid Razr appeals to the serious multitasker. It features 4G capability, a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and a 4.3-inch super AMOLED advanced GHD display.
Pros: Good display, Good picture and video quality, Screen is easy to read, Impressive promised battery life
Cons: Somewhat slow in speed tests, Very large footprint, Somewhat heavy, Can’t remove battery
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE radio means fast, fast, fast data connection speeds. Chassis boasts engineering feats of strength that puts even the fiercest competition to shame. Decent battery life (for a 4G device, that is) at 10.5 hours under normal use.
Cons: The 0 price tag isn’t exactly “giving away the razors,” if you catch our drift. Peripherals remain largely pointless.
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.
Pros: Super-slim, sexy and unique design. Great quality materials, excellent voice.
Cons: Non-removable battery and LTE weren't meant to be together.
Excerpt: 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...
Summary: The Motorola Droid RAZR is easily one of the best smartphones on any network, thanks to its ultra-thin but strong design and beautiful Super AMOLED Advanced display. The smartphone is also noticeably faster than the Droid Bionic, and it makes the most of its blazing 4G speeds with useful apps such...

Summary: If you can live with its large size and sometimes awkward feel, the Motorola RAZR is one of the best Android smartphones released this year. It combines a brilliant and vibrant screen in a unique frame, and tops off the package with slick and intuitive software that aids the user experience.
Pros: Fantastic 4.3in display, Excellent performance and slick software, Included Motorola apps add value
Cons: Large size is uncomfortable to hold, Feels top heavy due to "bump" design, Non-removable battery
Summary: Motorola’s RAZR is an impressive performer, with no one fault major enough to undermine a solid Android smartphone experience. However, despite some clever native app work, we can’t help but think that the RAZR would have benefited from Ice Cream Sandwich support, something that early adopters are...
