Motorola Droid RAZR review pros and cons

By Jamie Pert - Nov 8, 2011

Deciding which smartphone to buy is getting harder by the day, however if you are considering the Motorola Droid RAZR we thought we would make things a little easier for you by bringing in good and bad points from a few reputable reviews.

Engadget’s Droid RAZR review found plenty of pros and cons with this stylish smartphone. Positives include a stylish design and solid build quality, a fast 1.2GHz dual-core processor and the Smart Actions software (find out more about this here). But it’s not all great, the battery is not removable and Engadget’s Terrence O’Brien suggest that Motorola has applied “unnecessarily flashy UI customization”.

You can see the full review for yourself here, in the wrap up its thin design, premium materials and LTE connectivity are all complimented, whilst battery life and comfort in the hands are both criticised. It is also clear that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is needed.

TechCrunch’s verdict is pretty similar, they complimented the thin, beautiful and unique design, its great display and MOTOCast support, but suggested that it quite often gets hot, slows down and the battery life is not great. Jordan Crook also says that it feels too light to warrant such a price tag, but we think that this just a matter of personal opinion and you would soon get used to the aluminium and Kevlar design. You can see the full review here.

Finally you should check out the Cnet review, on the whole they seem happy with the Droid RAZR and here’s why: Firstly like TechCrunch and Engadget they are also very impressed by the design, display, 4G LTE connectivity and fast dual-core processor, however unlike the other reviews they actually complement battery life. They did however not like the fact that the battery was non-removable and suggested that it would not suit someone with relatively small hands – finally they thought that when compared to other similar smartphones the 8 megapixel wasn’t amazing.

On the whole most reputable sources say that this brings the RAZR series up to date with today’s high standards, there are some minor imperfections, but if you want the thinnest smartphone on the market, fast performance and fast connectivity you will not be making a mistake buying the Droid RAZR.

    I will Definantly be picking this up on Friday while everyone’s attention is that of the nexus and Android 4.0 I think people forget that the razr WILL be getting ics in the very near future and that’s really the big draw to nexus galaxy and once that’s not exclusive the nexus doesn’t have anything the razr doesn’t offer besides screen resolution and personally I don’t find the galaxy nexus to be an attractive looking phone
