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
Summary: The Motorola Razr i is faster than a greased whippet, thanks to its 2GHz Intel processor, and the edge-hugging screen is novel. Only an average camera, fussy styling and a lack of the latest version of Android let it down.
Cons: Intel chip puts the kibosh on quick Android updates;. Average camera.
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: 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 .
Excerpt: There have been some predecessors, the Orange San Diego for example, but with the RAZR i slated to launch in Europe and Latin America, it has its sights set on a much larger market than the Orange-branded handset.
Pros: Battery performance, compact, solid build, plenty of power, some nice tweaks to UI
Cons: Intel hardware not compatible with all apps, screen could be better
