TECH TIME REVIEW: Motorola DROID Razr is an extra thin, extra fast, extra impressive smartphone

The DROID line of smartphones has had its share of star phones, and has come a long way since Motorola’s original Droid was released just a couple years back.

The new Motorola DROID Razr (which resurrects a big name from smartphones past, the popular Razr flip phone) is being marketed as one of the fastest and best Droids yet, and comes with the option for some very cool accessories. But does it live up to the hype?


One factor that influences people’s phone buying is the look of their phone. And I have to say that it’s hard not to like the design of the Razr. It’s got a slim, attractive build (only 7.1 mm thick, the thinnest phone on the market). It’s so thin and light (only 4.48 oz.), at times I even forgot I was holding it. (One side effect of this design is the lack of a removable battery, but that shouldn’t be a concern for most people).

It also has a very high quality build, with a Gorilla Glass touchscreen, plus a KEVLAR reinforced backplate. This is in contrast to some other smartphones that operate great, but feel cheap to the touch. The Razr will take abuse and survive, I can say with confidence.

4G Speed, Processor In order to succeed in this quickly evolving smartphone market, you have to be speedy. And the Razr is no slouch in this department. For starters, it’s on Verizon’s 4G LTE network, the fastest in the business, and you’ll be able to download apps and upload/download media with blazing speeds – some of the fastest I’ve seen on the new crop of 4G phones.

Complementing the 4G speeds is a very fast dual-core 1.2 GHz processor; among the best specs on the market. What this does is allow for multitasking without any major delays, so whatever you’re doing you won’t be waiting around for long for it to work.
