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.

Screen is easy to read, Impressive promised battery life, somewhat slow in speed tests
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 distur... Full review
Wears Kevlar, but still falls prey to the bullet of poor performance
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 RA... Full review
Great performance in an odd package
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... Full review
A great combination of old school design concepts and new smartphone tech
A good looking, high-end Android phone that will get you noticed
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. 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... Full review
Excels and prevails at combining style and substance
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 mode... Full review
It's super thin, but it's as wide as a freight truck
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... Full review
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...!!Less
