Quick Take

A nice enough phone with a very slim design, but it asks a high price for specs not that far beyond its predecessors.

The Motorola Droid RAZR\’s main talking point is that it\’s really thin. It measures in at just 0.38-inches thick, but that measurement jumps up to about 0.5 inches thick near the top because of its stylistic \”bump\” up top. Despite the screen being made out of Gorilla Glass and the back covered in splash-resistant KEVLAR housing, the RAZR may prove to be less sturdy than other smartphones in its class.


The RAZR runs on 4G LTE and Android 4.0.4, is packed with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and has 1GB of RAM. It also has a whopping 32 GB of storage space, an 8 megapixel camera and Motorola\’s first AMOLED display. After the RAZR scored an average of over 2700 in its synthetic benchmark tests, Brighthand\’s reviewer said it\’s the fastest smartphone he\’s reviewed to date. The phone also has GPS and an HDMI port.

The RAZR\’s 1780 mAh battery cannot be removed. Brighthand rated its battery life \”average to good.\” Brighthand also said it\’ll last all day as long as not a lot of time is being devoted to running video or doing other intense battery-draining tasks.
