Review: Moto RAZR
The RAZR is practically iconic by now. Discussing its form factor almost seems moot, because so many people are more taken by its looks than the way the phone feels. However Motorola paid as much attention to the feel as to to the look of the RAZR - it actually feels surprisingly good in the hand. The body is slightly wider than other phones, but this allows the hand to grab the ultra thin sides more comfortably and securely. In addition, the RAZR is incredibly solid despite its tiny form and light weight. When installing the battery cover, it seems flimsy and rather janky, however once you lock it down, snapping in the corners even though on any plastic phone you wouldn't dare do the same, the cover and body are tight and solid.
The two halves of the phone are acutely convex on the sides, leaving a good channel to stick a finger in to flip the phone open.
Despite what it looks like, the keypad does not work with the help of any high tech magic, it is simply the same as the keypad on most microwaves or the old Timex Sinclair - there are tiny buttons behind the smooth keypad. The difference is that the RAZR's keypad is metal, which looks and feels pretty cool. And there are etched edges between the "keys" which help you to use the keypad by touch, however they are not so deep that you can type without looking. They merely help you know you're pressing the right key and not between keys.
