pretty good...


Jan 2, 2006 by jcalcatms

I was growing tired of Sprint's crappy service, and when I saw Cingular advertising the black RAZR in my area for 99 bucks, I decided that that was a good enough reason to just switch altogether to Cingular. I have mixed feelings about the switch, and about the RAZR.

It is every bit as stylish as it looks on the commercials, especially in its black version (available only from Cingular). I'll itemize my pros, cons, and others:

-high quality/stable feel
-beautiful inside screen
-loud, clear speakerphone
-loud, high quality ringtones
-nice size
-small when closed, and just the right size when open
-good navigability
-nice menu/color choices
-better than average battery life
-clear reception
-adding entries to address book is EXCEEDINGLY fast and easy
-alarm sounds could wake the dead

-side keys are actually on the upper flip

-very slow for a phone with so much hype and such a pricetag
-camera is very substandard compared to other VGA cameras
-external display is Glare Central and is more of a fingerprint magnet than your mother-in-law's bathroom mirror
-inddor reception less than desirable - at most, gets 3 bars (but fine on the go)
-internet (Cingular MEdia) is exceedingly slow and often just plain times out

Overall, I'd say that this phone is a good phone, but I would not pay anything more than the 99 dollar special that Cingular has been running. I'd love to get my hands on one of the newer versions of the RAZR and see if they're much better.

my black razr


Nov 10, 2005 by kenmarajas

I have the black v3 phone for 2 weeks now and i discovered some pros and cons. This is the first Motorola phone and i am happy about people's reaction to it.
Pros: attention magnet, very thin, very clear and crisp main display, very clear speaker, great keypad and it is made of metal-Aluminium and magnesium alloy (i think)bluetooth transfer is excellent, mp3 ringtone may work as mp3 player due to clarity, great slide show feature for pictures
Cons: a little hard to handle due to width, one may want it to look clean all the time, poor battery life and long charge time (compared to nokias), camera has many options yet only satisfactory results.
There should be video recording in my phone but i have none, i think it's because of the software (R374_G_OE.40.3CR) and i could not get technical support here in the Philippines to upgrade its software.

In summary, it's great but one shouldn't expect too much & enjoy its study construction. It's a fashion phone like the nokia 8910(i) and 8800. You could also wait for the V30i.

All about the looks . . . and thats it


Nov 4, 2005 by sdgmcdon

Obviously a great looking phone, good feel to it as well. Loud speaker and nice screen (on the inside, outside one is a joke). Battery life sucked (as I've found to be true of most Motorola's). Address book software appears to have been written by a two year old, it's really moronic (found that this appears to be true with all moto's though). Moto Phone tools? I just have one thing for motorola on that one:


Basically if you want to make a fashion statement the razr is great for that, but if you want a phone that's very functional, in design and performance, stay away from it...

I didn't comment on the camera because it's pointless on all cell phones - if you want to take good pictures BUY A REAL DIGITAL CAMERA!!! I actually wish I could get a nice phone WITHOUT a camera.

I got this phone this month (september) and i love it. Even though it got the same functions compared to other moto phones, i still like it. It is a very impressive phone. It has all the things i need i.e Bluetooth, Speaker, and Streaming Video, and SYTLE (imp).

It don't have is Music Player
only 5mb(that sux)
I can't think of anything else.

Great T-Mobile Phone!!!


Jul 15, 2005 by quikfeat

Just got the new Razr from T-Mobile yesterday and quite impressed!

Pros: Real thin, Video Capture which Cingular does not currently have, good vga camera for a phone, bluetooth, internal antenna, nice screen colors, external picture caller id, good sound quality.

Cons: the only thing I can think of is that the menu isn't as user-friendly as a samsung, nokia or lg.

Overall, great phone for T-Mobile!!!

Very good phone at the least in Homestead,Fl.!!

This phone has better reception than Horizon and Sprint has here. It's just that simple.
As far as features go, the speakerphone is outstanding in windy situations. Not perfect, but very good.
I'm not sure why, but my old Samsung 400 and my old V60 wouldn't hold a good charge for two days ever if I didn't make a call. This one does and then some. This maybe because at work the old phones got no service in the office , but this one does. I don't know.
That was some of the pro's.
Here's the cons.
A very weak vibrate, and a dim main screen in direct daylight, and of course Motorola's clunky software. I'm only deducting a half a point for that, because I didn't need that long to adapt to these shortcomings.
that's about it. I was very happy with Verizon's service, but am happier with cingular reception, and phone. The V3 rocks.

You Get What You Pay For


Jul 12, 2005 by acoustic222

- Slim & Sleek Design
- Extremely Portable
- Business & Traveler Features
- World Phone
- Camera
- Bluetooth

- Expensive
- Overrated

Bottom Line: Although the RAZR looks amazing, it comes at a high price. You are paying for the look esentially. If you are willing to shell out the money, then definitely go for it. For frequent travelers and business men this phone will do the job beautifully. But for most citizens, with looks aside, the RAZR is nothing special. Most people would fail to use the World Phone feature and find it's design extremely light and slim but maybe too light and slim at times. The best way to determine if this phone fits your needs is to determine if you will use its features and to get your hands on one and experiment with its design.

Acquired the Limited Edition Motorola Black V3 and so far it's high tech and I enjoy it. Although, not seeming to get a full charge in the am. It's the european model with an adaptor for the US. Anyone noticing a similar occurrence?

Awesome equipment...


May 26, 2005 by p_j_k

When it came time for me to pick out a phone that I could get my work email on (one of the advantages of working for a really small company) we got to pick our own. Initially I went with the Treo 650. It really had some issues within the first week. I needed a phone more than a PDA. I'm a systems engineer... the only reason I need email is so I can be automatically notified of any network problems. When I took it back I noticed the RAZR had IMAP capability. So I was able to set that up and get what I needed there. Plus as a phone this is by far the best cell phone I've had so far. Contrary to many beliefs, Cingular has even been helpful when I've needed it and I haven't had to wait long while calling customer service either. This phone is the smallest and sleekest one I've seen none the less. It's so easy to use and if you have to look to the manual it's really simple to find what you are looking for. It's an all-around easy to use phone. It's amazingly engineered as well, so small and light weight. It's Bluetooth capabilities have been working well. I got the Bluetooth earpiece so I can use it while I'm working, and need both hands. Motorola has always made the best speakerphones. Setting up voice dialing and picture caller id was very simple as well. I never discredit a phone for its picture taking capabilities, because that's not what it was meant to do. Although it does take good pictures. A flash would've been a cool add on feature. Putting the volume controls on the bottom half of the phone would've been nice too. It could've come with more ringtones on it. I'm not into the musical ringtones and all, I've just become used to have a lot more options. Cingular's phone insurance doesn't cover this phone, I don't know why they do that because it didn't cover the Treo either. I've researched it and got my own for about the same price, it even covers water damage, lost, and stolen. No more provider insurance for me ever again.
