Summary: Physically, we love it. It’s perhaps a bit too wide and we did feel slightly silly using such a huge phone to take photos in public, but it’s different and solid enough that it’s always enjoyable to use. That said, the camera, software and screen aren’t quite as good as the options found on the Galaxy S II, or Xperia Arc, or many HTC models, so unless you’re a huge fan of its physical design there are no particularly killer reasons to actually own it.
Excerpt: After the success of the RAZR series of phones, Motorola is back (and killing it too!) with the RAZR2 V8. Globally – and I'm quoting official company sources here – the phone has sold around 100 million RAZRs already. My impression of the phone wasn’t far from the general gasps I got from friends and people around me. The phone does take the design bit to the next level, with a sturdy form factor and a beautiful, good-to-look-at and shiny exterior.
Summary: The calls with the V8 sounded well, as the it is a typical Motorola-branded handset. The call alert produces moderate volume for standard tunes and above average for mp3 tracks, which allows it to scream out the tune loud enough to make you notice a call even when it is somewhere in clothes; silent alert is about average strength-wise.
