LG Rumor BlackJack II HTC 5800 LG CU515 RAZR2 Luxury  

We spent just a few minutes looking at the Motorola RAZR2 V8 Luxury Edition.

It has refined materials, including real gold (not fake!) plating. The gold is ultra shiny, and ultra smudgable. The gold highlights are visible in a pin-striped pattern on the front fascia of the phone, as the entire keyboard and sides of the phone are plated in gold as well. It is really dazzling when held directly under light. We can imagine it blinding people if used in sunlight.

The back of the phone is covered in a snake-skin-patterned rubber-like substance that offers plenty of grip when holding the phone. We have to say that this material feels more like rubber than snake skin. That's a bit disappointing since it contrasts starkly with the high-fashion gold plating.

Overall, though, the hardware and user interface are similar to the original RAZR2 V8.

We also shot a quick video tour. You can watch it here:
