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 Motorola RAZR i is a smartphone that combines the best of both worlds: although it packs a relatively big 4.3-inch display, it is extremely compact by today's standards. In fact, together with its RAZR M variant, it is the smallest 4.3-inch smartphone one can currently find on the market. At the same time, it delivers the performance one would expect out of a contemporary mid-range handset, and might even rival some of the current high-ends in that aspect.
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: Moto's latest handset has Intel inside and promises to take you to the edge
Pros: Good size and weight, Big, vibrant screen, Intel Inside, Reasonable price, Fluid Android skin, The fact that you can expand the storage by up to 64GB makes this an attractive option. And it's an easy phone to use without too much customisation to confuse Android newbies. Plus, it works well as a phone, with good signal, and provides you with a top notch, fast internet service.
Cons: Design divides opinion, Low pixel density, Poor vibration, Only seven home screens, The camera performed well in good light, but we were left disappointed in anything other than perfect conditions. The Motorola Razr i isn't an LTE handset, so when that starts rolling out on EE this year and other networks in a few months time, if you've signed up for 24 months, you may find yourself feeling a little cheated and behind the times. Although Jelly Bean is now being rolled...
Summary: Those wondering whether or not an Intel-powered smartphone can deliver the goods will have their questions answered by the RAZR i. It’s a powerful, fast phone with a beautiful screen that, despite some interface quirks, is a solid performer. It doesn’t quite hit the highs of the Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPhone 5, but as Motorola’s first attempt at an Intel-powered handset, it’s a very promising start indeed.
Summary: Review written by Charlotte Kertrestel The Motorola Razr i is a mid-range smartphone that you might not have come across until now. But with a relatively low price tag, and monthly deals starting from just £15.50, we’re eager to discover whether this Motorola device could be a hidden gem… The Motorola Razr i has a manageable 4.3 inch screen, as with other similarly priced smartphones in its range such as the HTC One S and Huawei Ascend P1.
Conclusion: For what's essentially a midrange Android, the RAZR i manages to pack in a lot for the price. The screen is beautiful and the performance is reassuringly speedy. Add to that a pretty good 8 megapixel camera and better than average battery life, and you've got a very decent smartphone contender.
Pros: Fast Intel processor, terrific screen, slim good looks
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 .
