So Retarded

Evil or Very Mad I hate it when they try to compete with moto and razr thell never win Razz
There are so many phones that have tried to beat the RAZR and have succeeded.
ya i understand your comment, but you have to think, if you were samsung, or an other brand, wouldn't you want to top the most popular ( not best but popular) phone? but i do still understand that other manufacturer's should come out of something new ...

If you have had a RAZR or know anyone that does, they all say that they suck. Samsung has been an innovator in almost everything. So should nobody be allowed to come out with mp3 phones since Samsung made the first one?
Yes, other companies may not sell as many thin phones as the RAZR due to Motorola's popularity. However, the RAZR, regarding its quality, is absolutely terrible! One more time...Terrible! Working for CIngular, the RAZR phones have a higher return/e...

Motorola sucks. They still have OS issues. Plus, Samsung believes in testing their products and perfecting them before they put them on the market for sale. You need to really check your facts before you say Motorola is tops. The RAZR name will only l...

If any of u think that any company including samsung or moto or nokia or anyone else makes great phones right of the line is mistaken. All the makers out there keep releasing updates via firmwares all the time through the realease of their phones beca...

the Sanyo 6000 is 10mm thick and that came out lightyears before the gay razr came out. so moto didnt make anything up , they just spammed the word thin 2 million times and all the nubs went and bought it.

Yeah, 'cause Samsung has such a poor reputation compared to Motorola. That's called "sarcasm".

If You Don't Work in Wireless.... Shut Up!

For everyone here that's been battling on this message board about the Razr vs Samsung that doesn't work in wireless, you should really pipe down.
Any one that works in the wireless industry knows that, unfortunately, style almost always wins out over substance. In the case of the Razr, there are tons of phones out there that have tried to replicate the design and bolster the features, but none of these phones will ever reproduce the types of sales that the Razr has experienced in its 19 months that its been on the market.
When it comes to quality, there isn't a single GSM Samsung out there that can go pound for pound with the Razr when it comes to RF Performance. Just this year alone, I have sold more Razrs in the last 2 months, than the...

Okay thank you Motorola fanboy. Why don't you and Tuoluume (The SamSUCK fanboy) duke it out in the ring in Vegas.

I've worked in wireless for years, and I think that the Razr's RF is subpar at best.

if a person wants a high RF rating, they need to be in a nokia, hands down. but more people are more concerned with whats popular and whats "eyepopping". thats a ...

Samsung has the lowest return rate of any vender on Cingular Wireless.

The highest.

Motorola.

First off, what people SHOULD DO and what they ACTUALY DO are 2 different things. You say what they SHOULD DO and they'll ACTUALLY just get pissed at you.

Moving on. Comparing ANY CDMA phone to ANY GSM phone is an exercise in futility. You're co...

If we follow your logic, then every single phone that comes out from now on is based on the previous but "more stuff 2 it".

The phone that you are holding in your hand is...

i saw this phone @ newmobile.nl and gsmarena.com and it looks really nice... 1 cm thin!!! 10 mm that's 5 mm thinner than the crappy RAZR and look at all the features... memory card slot, bluetooth, edge, 2.0 mega pixel!!! can't beat that... another winner for a samsung... samsung you go!!!! you guys are the best
i hear you Very Happy
AMEN!! Smile
Razr is 2 years old. Obviously this is going to pack more features. Actually, Motorola's Capri and Canary have all the features you mentioned. They won't be as thin, but how much thinner than razr do you really need to be, and how much thinner befo...

WHO BUYS THESE THINGS!?!

ive been wondering this for a while...

who buys these expensive, high end phones?

they must live in a sterile environment cause I'd never risk a $600+ phone out in what i do.
Let's not forget that there are people with money to burn. I don't but I always get the hook-up. Also it's nice to have choices. I say if people by em, sell em.

Also as a sales guy it's nice to have the challenge and the spiffs for selling the...

Dumb Question

But will future models be available with paper cut insurance?
Or, will insurance cover it as lost, if it slips between the floor boards of my hard wood floor?
