Unmistakably a Motorola handset and yet like no other, design-wise, Motorola seems to have hit the mark with their new RAZR.

The Motorola DROID RAZR is a 4G LTE-capable version of the Motorola RAZR. It's thinner than almost any phone on the market and solidly constructed. The DROID RAZR is very fast, up to 10 times faster than the 3G version, but battery life is "razor-thin" also.

Our consumer testers liked how comfortable it was to hold the HTC Droid Incredible 2 in their hands and to their ears, as well how easy reading was on its 4-inch super LCD display. This smartphone was intuitive to navigate and we found it simple to remove the battery (if necessary). Picture quality from the 8-megapixel camera was good and calls on the network were very clear. Volunteers commented on the rugged feel of the phone, making them feel confident in the durability and build of the phone. Some pointed out the phone’s minimalist design — all black with few lines to disturb the feel. It ships with Android 2.2 out of the box, so some of the usability feels a bit dated. The Incredible is a solid choice for those who want Android at a more reasonable price.

The Motorola RAZR is definitely made to look different and it does make heads turn. It is a good device as far as telephony is concerned and the ramped up multimedia features give it a few more brownie points. However, the laggy performance issues need immediate attention. Being a flagship product, it is priced at Rs 33,500, which combined with the lacklustre performance, takes away most of the fun.

Thin and lightweight design, no user-replaceable battery, 4G connectivity

There's a lot to like about the Droid RAZR, but there are also a few drawbacks. We really like the thin design of the device and the fact that it's significantly lighter than many of today's phones. We also love the gorgeous 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced qHD display that offers a resolution of 540 x 960.

Some of the durability features built into the Droid RAZR are also very nice. This phone features a scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass display as well as a water repellent nanocoating that is designed to protect even the internal components of the phone from spills. The Droid RAZR's back panel is made with Kevlar fiber for extra durability as well.

Although there's a lot to like about the Droid RAZR, we really wish the phone had a removable and user-replaceable battery. We feel every Android phone should offer a removable battery. In addition, the Droid RAZR's battery didn't always last as long as we would have liked, particularly when streaming lots of content at 4G speeds. If the Droid RAZR had a user-replaceable battery, at least power users could be assured of added usability time by swapping batteries in the middle of the day.

We're also anxious for the Droid RAZR to get Android 4.0. Although no release date for this update has been set, we're hoping updates to this new version of Android will begin rolling out sooner rather than later now that the Galaxy Nexus has officially launched (the first phone to feature Android 4.0).

The Smart Actions features found on the Droid RAZR were also quite handy, and could be used to help the phone conserve battery life. We found this app to be useful in a variety of situations and appreciated having a phone that would automatically silence the ringer in certain locations and perform other tasks for us automatically.

Overall, the Droid RAZR has a lot of good features and a really sleek, beautiful design. We feel battery life on the Droid RAZR may be a weak point for some (particularly when 4G is enabled), but also realize that some users may not demand as much from their phone as we do. In those situations, the Droid RAZR's battery life may be a non-issue. There are also guides from XDA-Developers and others that offer many suggestions and methods for significantly improving the phone's battery life, such as changing background data usage. With plenty of power, a gorgeous thin and lightweight design, and plenty of useful features, the Droid RAZR lives up to the RAZR name and the expectations users have with Motorola's legacy of cellphones and smartphones.

The Droid Razr has no aesthetic merits other than its thinness, but performance is admirable. The phone feels snappy and very responsive, typing is great, and the phone's camera is acceptable. We will admit that there were some Ice Cream Sandwich features we enjoyed on the Galaxy Nexus that we missed on the Droid Razr, such as the card view of running applications. Hopefully the new OS will come to the Droid Razr sooner rather than later.

A nice enough phone with a very slim design, but it asks a high price for specs not that far beyond its predecessors

The Motorola Droid RAZR is in a unique and unenviable position. On its own merits, it beats everything else that Verizon has to offer, and certainly establishes itself as Motorola's best smartphone to date. The only other option currently on the market that's competitive is the Samsung Galaxy S II.

But at the same time, the RAZR is overshadowed by the impending launch of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, featuring twice as much memory and an HD-quality screen. The Droid RAZR takes virtually the exact same specs of the Droid Bionic, and shoehorns them into a thinner design with an AMOLED screen. That's a decent evolutionary update, but not a revolutionary one. With other devices on the horizon that push the envelope further, that takes a lot of luster off of it.

If the RAZR were priced at $200, as most high-end smartphones used to be, it might have a definite advantage over upcoming competitors. But as it stands, the savvy buyer will wait awhile before they make a choice. A little time will let either the RAZR drop in price, and the competition to be evaluated.

I am not convinced that the Droid RAZR is the best phone on Verizon Wireless as was claimed at the launch of this device. Between the HTC Rezound and the upcoming Galaxy Nexus, the Droid RAZR certainly has some competition on Big Red. The impressive thing, however, is that the phone has more than enough power to compete with the other handsets, even without Android 4.0.

The Motorola Razr is powerful and impressive, but so are a lot of other high-end handsets that are out on the market at the moment. It can match rival devices from the likes of HTC and Samsung in terms of processing power and display-quality but it doesn’t stand head and shoulders above them. If what you’re after is a good looking, high-end Android phone that will get noticed then the Razr could be worth considering but, apart from that, there isn’t  a great deal to worry Motorola’s rivals.

The Razr offerers so much with one hand, then bats it away with the other

We don't usually feel confused by a phone. But the Razr offerers so much with one hand, then bats it away with the other. We like the unusual design.

We don't usually feel confused by a phone. But the Razr offerers so much with one hand, then bats it away with the other. We like the unusual design. Motorola hasn't just "done an Apple" and built a clone phone. What it's done is thought about the style and design, and put together something that impresses from the moment you hold it.

We like the screen, although we're not crazy about AMOLED, we quickly found that it was bright, clear and detailed. The 256ppi 4.3-inch screen is not, technically, that high resolution, but it didn't look especially coarse to us, and we soon settled in to its typical AMOLED green tone. Gamers will love the vibrancy of the colours too, which are very impressive. We still think that the iPhone and HTC Sensation have the best screens on the market - the iPhone wins, because of its high resolution IPS  display - but the Razr doesn't disappoint either.

The Droid RAZR excels and prevails at combining style and substance. It just does it at a hefty cost. Verizon’s LTE network is guaranteed to have you downloading and streaming content at ridiculously fast speed rates, while the dual-core will ensure brisk results on the productive end. The redesign is both hit and miss, as the phone’s slimness is remarkably attractive. On the other hand, its sealed back becomes a major problem should a battery issue arise.

Luckily with the assistance of the Smart Actions feature, the new RAZR can do what it never could with previous models: hold a charge. But again, the phone’s biggest vice is the price tag. $300 for a phone that offers niche upgrades and near-identical performance to that of other Verizon-Android offerings is pretty steep, and will force consumers to check out more affordable selections.

It's super thin, but it's as wide as a freight truck

from Business Insider (4 years ago)

The RAZR certainly has the brains to compete with the incoming Galaxy Nexus, and it has the form factor to beat the HTC Rezound.

The RAZR certainly has the brains to compete with the incoming Galaxy Nexus, and it has the form factor to beat the HTC Rezound. But that doesn't mean the Rezound, which feels like a brick compared to the RAZR, doesn't feel a little more ergonomic to hold in your hand.

So the RAZR feels a bit awkward. It's super thin, but it's as wide as a freight truck. Like I mentioned, the screen is pretty unimpressive.

And worst of all, the phone is $299.99 on a two-year contract. I can basically guarantee that in a couple months, it will have dropped at least $100 in price. Why go for an overpriced phone like the RAZR when the iPhone 4S is available for $199.99? Unless you require the "thinnest phone," of course.

Its thinness and light weight makes its size (4.3") very forgiving and easy to carry around!

Coming from the Nokia E66, I was concerned about how I would carry around a phone with a huge 4.3" screen! However, the Droid RAZR is amazingly lightweight and thin, so you almost don't feel any weight whether it's on your hip or in your shirt pocket. Screen is super-bright and sharp, performance is very snappy, and the 'desktop' is uncluttered--the Motoblur is pretty transparent! Battery life is averaging 2 days of moderate use--Facebook (incl. following news feeds), email, and basic PDA activities. I've been using it for a little over a week, and I love it...!!
