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.
Excerpt: When Motorola first launched its original, iconic Razr phone in 2004, it set the bar for thin. Big surprise: Seven-plus years later, thin is still very much in. Eager to show its design chops haven’t withered, Motorola has brought the Razr brand back, pasting it onto an Android phone that’s beautiful, extremely slim and remarkably powerful. Sort of like a ’60s-era Twiggy, only transported to 2011 and juiced out of her gourd on Muscle Milk.

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
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.
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 as MotoCast.

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
