Motorola Droid Razr HD — The Razr’s back, and it’s better than ever
8 March 2014
Conclusion: Overall, we see no reason to fault the Motorola Droid Razr HD at all. It’s got nearly all the top specs: NFC, HD screen, Android 4.0 (and it’s ready for Android 4.0 Jelly Bean by the end of the year) and a solid design encased in Kevlar. Would we like to have seen a quad core processor in there?
Conclusion: It’s an unusual proposition to come across and for the most part the biggest shortcoming of the Motorola RAZR HD is its timing. It’s certainly one of the most well built phones we’ve encountered in recent months and the battery life is phenomenal, particularly when it has to deal with 4G usage;...
Pros: Good build quality, Amazing battery life, 4G (LTE) capability
Cons: Design will divide consumers, Weaker specs for a flagship, Expensive
Summary: The RAZR HD is the latest phone from Motorola . Tagged as the “All Day Phone”, 4G capable, with a Kevlar body, internal and external splash guard protection, Corning Gorilla Glass and a 2500mAh battery, the RAZR HD really is built to be a hard-wearing and efficient phone.
Pros: Strong Build, Great in-hand feel, 4G/LTE, 4.7″ screen in a compact body, Easy to set up out of the box, Close to Stock Android experience (light overlay, rather than heavily entwined skin), Pricepoint – $720 RRP, 2530 mAh battery, Micro SD card slot (up to 32Gb), Multi-colour LED Notification, Ho...
Summary: A really very comprehensive offering from Motorola, the Razr HD is the best Razr to date. However, it doesn't quite have the upper-level clout to compete with its rivals, particularly at such a high price point.
Pros: Well built, Close to stock Android, Good all round performer
Cons: On the heavy side, Unsightly back panel texture, Pentile display
Conclusion: The Motorola name may not have the hip cache of Apple, Samsung or even Sony, but on the evidence of the Razr HD the US company is perfectly capable of producing a very fine Android smartphone.
Pros: Sharp 720p HD Super AMOLED screen, solid build quality, decent battery life
Conclusion: The Motorola Razr HD is not a bad phone by any means, offering an excellent screen, albeit not on a par with the Sony Xperia Z, and a unique design, albeit not quite as nice as the HTC One. That's the problem with the Razr HD.
Pros: Excellent battery life, good design, minimalist Android skin.
Cons: Poor camera, difficult to hold, performance can be laggy., The price.
Conclusion: Overall, it is hard not to come out in favour of the Motorola RAZR HD. Inside and out, there are some very alluring features. The specs may not be able to match up to the bleeding edge flagship devices of 2013, but there if you’re not too concerned about that then there’s an awful lot to like here.
Summary: Review written by Charlotte Kertrestel Although all the focus on Motorola has been on the next Google collaboration we could see later this year, it doesn’t mean that we’ve written off Motorola’s existing range of smartphones just yet.
Summary: Motorola's flagship handset comes with underwhelming specs
Pros: Good battery life, Simple OS, MicroSD slot, The battery life is by far the most impressive thing about the Motorola Razr HD. It's almost become accepted (and acceptable) that a phone will need charging pretty much daily, but this handset bucks that trend. You're still not likely to get more than ...
Cons: Low specs for price, Uncomfortable build, Poor video camera, The core specs are its main downfall. They're not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but they're also not really good enough to justify such a high price tag. The video camera also isn't the best we've seen and the angular design of...
Excerpt: With our RAZR HD review coming around the time that HTC, Sony and Samsung are unleashing their big guns for 2013, it could seem like a blast from the past. In terms of specification and price the new RAZR HD is a great alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S3 - though given how excellent the S3 still...
