Ultra thin Motorola RAZR hands on review

Earlier today we told you about the release date and price for the just announced Motorola RAZR. The smart looking device is a rebirth of the iconic name Motorola used a few years ago. Now we have the ultra thin Motorola RAZR in a hands on review.

The team over at have managed to get some hands on time with the new RAZR, as the handset goes live with a variety of retailers for preorders. The Super AMOLED Plus screen measures 4.3-inches, and was found to provide a really sharp display that was also vibrant and responsive. With well contrasted and bright colors it is a match for the iPhone 4S and Galaxy S II.

It may be a really thin device but it still feels a big device in the hand partly down to its ultra wide display, while the RAZR is alarmingly light. The camera on the handset is an 8-megapixel unit that is capable of 1080p video capture, and on first looks was slightly disappointing.

Viewing the cameras live view via the handsets screen the content appeared slightly grainy without clear definition. Once the image is taken though the shots were found to be of a reasonable standard, which included some vivid colors. The camera was used in low light conditions so it may prove to be better than early impressions have given.

The RAZR felt quick and responsive thanks to the 1.2GHZ dual-core processor, and the device itself looked smart with its Kevlar back panel compared to the usual black plastic. The scratch resistant Gorilla glass screen coating with nano technology doesn’t seem to have affected the picture quality of the AMOLED display, but couldn’t be properly tested.
