Conclusion: So it's pretty much all good with the Motorola RAZR i, especially if you can stomach the macho design. The screen has great viewing angles, the UI is innovative being more user friendly than other Android phones and the camera delivers decent, albeit slightly noisy pictures. Add solid performance and class-leading battery life into the mix and you can consider us impressed.
Pros: Great battery life, Fast camera capture, Intuitive UI
Cons: Masculine design, Occasional UI stutter, Pricey on launch
Conclusion: The call quality with the Motorola RAZR i is well above the average. The volume of the earpiece is very decent and the voice tones it emits have quite a lot of depth, which makes them sound a bit more natural. On the other side of the line, our voice is delivered loud and clear, with only a slight, yet not too annoying hint of digitizing, probably due to the secondary microphone actively reducing background noise.
Pros: Extremely compact for a 4.3-inch smartphone, Good call quality
Cons: Photo quality could have been a lot better, The custom interface is meh
Summary: Intel’s removed any lingering concerns we had about letting it power our phone, and the Motorola RAZR i is the most enjoyable smartphone the company has released in the UK for several years. Is that enough to tempt you away from surefire mid-range wins like the HTC One S? Not quite: HTC’s build quality and guaranteed app and software update support makes it the preferable option if you want a medium-sized phone that’s not made by Apple.
Excerpt: Can the Motorola Razr i take on the likes of the iPhone 5 , Samung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X? It's certainly going to try and with popular models such as the Razr and Motorola Razr Maxx laying the ground work, the latest model has got plenty to live up to.
Pros: Great battery life, Big screen/body ratio, Rugged build
Conclusion: The Motorola RAZR i is a great mid-range handset that offers good performance and ergonomics for its price. The inclusion of expandable memory, NFC and a hardware camera button are particular highlights. However, aside from understandable trade offs like the non-HD screen and lack of 4G, there is one sore point which is more of a concern: its app compatibility. Its superfast Intel chip may blow away much of the competition but it also won't work with some apps.
Pros: Impressive edge to edge screen, Fast Intel processor, Great ergonomics
Cons: Screen isn't HD, Not compatible with every app on the Play Store, Slightly clunky design
Summary: At a reasonable price point and with solid performance, this 4.3 incher from Motorola packs a punch in the mid-range market. A 2GHz Intel processor is the star of this show, but the striking design will earn fans, too.
Excerpt: To be honest when Motorola first announced they were going to launch a new handset we were instantly drawn to thoughts of a Quad-based power house to take on the might of the Samsung Galaxy S III or the HTC One X .
