The Motorola RAZR is back, and it has been redesigned into a brand new phone. It is the thinnest smartphone on the market at only 7.1mm at its thinnest end. The phone is constructed with aluminum and Kevlar, while the touchscreen is made of Gorilla Glass. This makes the Motorola RAZR one of the most durable phones out there despite its thin profile.
The phone features a dual core processor running at an impressive 1.2GHz processor. This allows the Gingerbread 2.3.5 operating system to function without any hiccups even if several apps are open at once. 8GB of internal storage along with a 16GB SD card give the phone plenty of storage for apps, videos, and music. While the phone is not quite as snappy as the Samsung Galaxy S II or the iPhone 4S, it is still one of the top performers on the market. The screen is a Super AMOLED panel, which offers plenty of sharpness and contrast. It is not as good as the panel featured on the iPhone 4S though, but is still good enough for most users.
4G is also offered and if the service is available in your city, you will enjoy extremely fast download speeds and be able to stream HD quality video without any waiting period. However, using the phone can be a pain if you are not a fan of Motorola's tweaks to the Android operating system. Many of the menu systems are confusing and feature distracting animations. Previous users of Android will get the hang of it pretty easily, but a first time user might find the user interface to be confusing.
