Review: Motorola Droid RAZR for Verizon Wireless
I have to admit, I was really excited about the Motorola Droid RAZR heading into this review. What I've discovered will probably stop me from buying one for myself, but that's because I am extremely picky. Here's what you should base your own decision on.
The Droid RAZR is an attractive, thin handset that pushes boundaries in terms of design and manufacturing. It is a great voice phone, though it didn't perform as well as other Verizon phones in terms of 4G and 3G signal. The RAZR's questionable 4G battery life and locked-in power supply bear serious consideration.
In other areas, though, the RAZR excels. The user interface is extremely fast and even the most demanding applications didn't cause the RAZR to break a sweat. It offers a wide array of communications tools and social networking integration across the board. The Droid RAZR is probably the most powerful media phone to ever hit the market from Motorola, thanks to the large array of apps, such as MOTOCAST. The camera software is great, even if it fails to take winning pictures all the time.
