Motorola RAZR Review

Motorola is also among the top contenders when we talk about smartphones and to accelerate their sale and growth in the global market Motorola is now trying to use old tactics that provided them with the success they were looking for. This year Motorola has decided to come up with their new smartphone that belongs to the most popular RAZR family. The all new Motorola Droid RAZR is certainly going to resurrect the RAZR series once again in the market. It was in the year 2004 when Motorola made a global impact with their RAZR V3 but now they are trying the same experiment with Droid RAZR.

Motorola RAZR Hardware

Motorola claims that the new RAZR that they have launched is thin and sleek like the early RAZR models but the fact is that the new smartphone is thicker than the Samsung Galaxy S2. However, on the outside Motorola has come up with new features that really makes this phone stand out from the rest. The shell of the Droid RAZR is made up from aluminum, Kevlar and Gorilla glass and therefore it looks tougher rather than having a premium feel to it. However, users can be sure that the phone will not shatter into pieces when they drop it for the first time. Inside the Motorola RAZR is TI OMAP 4430 dual core mobile processor which is one of the best mobile processors in the market. It has Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread which means that users can enjoy the best Android experience on this smartphone.

Motorola RAZR Display

On the front, Motorola RAZR has 4.3 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen. To protect the screen from damages and scratches Motorola has incorporated Corning Gorilla glass. The screen resolution is really great and sharp and therefore you can see great pictures on your Motorola RAZR screen. However, the screen resolution is not great when compared with other smartphones in the same range and therefore Motorola Droid RAZR certainly disappoints in the display department.

Motorola RAZR Battery Life

Motorola RAZR is certainly loaded with many features and therefore it comes with non-removable 1780 mAh battery that can deliver 8.5 days of standby time and 12.5 hours of talktime. However, these figures are only what Motorola claims and there are many critics that claim that the number of hours are quite less when they test it. This could be because of the large screen that the RAZR sports in the front. If you are looking for a good smartphone with longer battery life then you can certainly go for RAZR but you will always need to carry the charger along with you as the battery cannot be removed.

Motorola RAZR Software

If you have been using Motorola phones earlier you will be familiar with the operating system and software available. However, it will be tough for the first time users to understand the software and will take some time to get the hands on it. However, the Android users will have certain options to understand how to make use of the smartphone. The all new RAZR comes with certain pre-installed apps that can help users to make use of their Motorola RAZR in a better way. The smartphone also has QuickOffice, MotoPrint and Citrix and Smart Actions. Motorola has purposely added Smart Actions to extend the battery life of the smartphone.

Motorola RAZR Camera

Like various other smartphones available in the market, the new Motorola Droid RAZR comes with 8 megapixel camera on the rear side. The camera is really good and it can click some decent pictures which is surprising. On the other hand, it also captures 1080p videos which are below average quality.


The new Motorola RAZR certainly impresses the users but only in certain departments and therefore Motorola will have to think hard on incorporating better features that can create the same kind of sensation that made their V3 RAZR the best selling phone in the world.
