Motorola Droid RAZR Review

| October 24, 2011 | Comments

As recently as six years ago, Motorola’s RAZR phones wowed the market with their slimness. They sold like hot cakes, and even for Motorola itself, their success was a hard act to follow. Since then, other manufacturers like Nokia, Samsung and Apple have steadily gained market share at Motorola’s cost.

With Google recently acquiring Motorola’s mobile business, it was only a matter of time before Motorola’s hardware prowess combined with the power of Google’s Android operating system to launch a mini revolution. That’s just what the Motorola Droid RAZR is expected to unleash. Based on initial information about the product, it certainly does look like this will be another winner.

A 1.2 Ghz dual core processor, a 1GB RAM and Android’s 2.3.5 Gingerbread operating system imbue the Motorola Droid RAZR with some serious power and processing capabilities. It has lots of goodies that will make even veteran mobile phone users drool.

For example, you can download content such as music, documents and pictures directly from your computer to the phone using Motorola’s MotoCast app. The rear camera can record video at 1080p and capture 8 megapixel still images. The additional camera can capture 1.3 megapixel images.

Motorola’s designers have put quite some thought into the looks and physical attributes of this phone. The body of the phone itself is made of Kevlar, while the display is made of scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass.

It also has a water repellent coating. In fact, even the circuit boards inside the phone have a waterproof coating, which means that an accidental spill or two won’t be the end of your prized possession.
