Oh the mighty RAZR brand has returned. Except this time Verizon has decided to make it more powerful, faster, stronger, and above all “smarter”. Yes we have see the rise of this once legendary brand of phone, the phone that once took the world by storm. Will it do it again, I doubt it but hey that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good phone.
The Motorola DROID RAZR is another member of the ever growing DROID family. This one happens to be the thinnest phone in the world (at least at this moment, give it 2 months lol), and boy is this phone thin. Though it is thin, it is kind of wide when compared to other Android phones, it is as if someone put a wide body car customization kit on this phone aftermarket. Though it is wide, after a little bit, it really isn’t that bad to hold. While I don’t claim to have huge hands, they are big enough where it isn’t a bother. But if you have tiny mitts, this might now be the phone for you.
Once you get past the thinnest, the phone does have this nice Kevlar backing that feels nice to touch. I’ve always said that a nice rubber back is the way to go, but I could get use to this Kevlar business! Upfront, it is all screen. Large and in charge this screen is and it gets down to business. If you have used the DROID Bionic, then you’ll be familiar with this device, just with more screen to use.
I’m not going to go to deep into the experience on this one. Just picture my review of the Motorola DROID Bionic, and then add a couple inches of screen space. MOTOBLUR is still better on these devices (Bionic and now RAZR) than those of the past and I enjoyed using the DROID RAZR just as much as the Bionic. 4G LTE is of course awesome and my overall experience was great. If I was on Verizon Wireless, the Motorola DROID RAZR would probably be one of a few I would have a hard time deciding on. Man this is just a far cry from back when I was on Verizon. Back them, I would die waiting for a cool phone to drop for them, and now VZW is the house of cool devices!
Overall this is a DROID to be proud of. Will it reach the heights or it ancestral namesake? Probably now, but then again Motorola isn’t releasing this phone on every carrier like before. If it did, the Motorola DROID RAZR would be a force to be reckon with.
But despite it limitation to only one carrier, this is an impressive phone none the less. If your on Verizon Wireless, I would give this a serious consideration. I know it is going to rough with the Galaxy Nexus coming but give it a look.
