Excerpt: The Motorola Razer is the latest handset from the American telecommunications company, but as you'll see in this hands-on review, it's set to disappoint. Why you ask? Because in spite of the official launch of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich yesterday, alongside the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Motorola has confirmed that its 7.1 mm thick Android device will be powered by the older Android Gingerbread version 2.3.5 of the Google mobile OS.
Conclusion: The Motorola RAZR shows glimmers of brilliance throughout. There’s no getting away from the fact that the handset is heavily let down by the screen. That said, the inclusion of apps such as MOTOPRINT, Smart actions and MUSIC add huge amounts of function while the design is considered, sharp and elegant. Throw in a great camera and smooth performance and it’s easy to like Motorola’s latest flagship.
Pros: Design, Pre-installed apps, Camera performance, Battery-life
Cons: Screen performance, Some customisations unrefined, Default audio settings
Conclusion: Verizon's top-of-the-line feature phone packs terrific voice quality and decent multimedia features into a sumptuous body, though a dull interface takes some of the fun out of this handset's experience.
Pros: Excellent voice quality. Music player displays info on external screen.
Conclusion: Sprint's top-of-the-line feature phone looks and feels luxurious, and playing Sprint TV on the front screen is a fun trick. What's astonishing is that there are no included e-mail applications and some Java programs could be more stable.
Pros: Sprint TV on external screen. Very good voice quality. Allows all third-party Java programs.
Cons: Java stability and compatibility issues. Unimpressive camera. No official e-mail option.
Excerpt: Announced back in October, the Motorola Razr is Motorola Mobility's latest (European) high-end Android phone which shares some design DNA with the original Motorola Razr clam-shell phone. Running on Android 2.3.5 / Gingerbread , the Razr is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core/dual-channel RAM CPU. It supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and quadband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 850/900/1900/2100 MHz as well as WiFi b/g/n at 2.4 and 5 GHz and features aGPS.
Summary: Without doubt, the new Razr looks absolutely fantastic. Manages to pack in a lot of power in what Motorola calls "the world's slimmest phone". While it isn't bullet proof, you can still boast about the Kevlar layer on the rear panel! The only thing we say going against it is the price, when up against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy SII and the HTC Sensation, all offering similar performance. Maybe itï¿½s the looks!
Pros: Ultra slim design, Use of Kevlar adds a dash of carbon fibre-ish looks, Excellent Super AMOLED display, Good camera for stills and videos
Cons: Feels surprisingly big, Battery life isn't very good
