The Motorola Razr handset sets a new benchmark for high-end performance

Motorola RAZR - Pocket-lint

 

We've had a real voyage of discovery with the RAZR. When the phone was first announced, we fell in love. When we first held it, we fell out of love again.

Huge screen, decent battery life in normal use, light, stylish

Unwieldy, perhaps too big, not as quick as it could be, OLED screen not perfect

We don't usually feel confused by a phone. But the Razr offerers so much with one hand, then bats it away with the other. We like the unusual design. Motorola hasn't just "done an Apple" and built a clone phone. What it's done is thought about the...

Motorola Razr review

 

The legendary Moto brand gets reborn in an Android skin

Super slim design ; Hi-res AMOLED screen ; Cool and useful overlay ; Fast processor and oodles of RAM ; Impressive media player

Slightly poor battery ; Odd screen design ; Only 5 homescreens ; Erratic internet browser ; Top heavy chassis

We've updated our review to include a greater range of camera shots and to reflect a price drop to just £21 per month on contract.

Motorola RAZR review

 

Anyone unfamiliar with the Motorola RAZR brand probably wasn't a mobile phone owner back in the heady phone boom at the start of the millennium. Selling around 130 million handsets, the RAZR was a phone phenomenon, the flip-phone design and super-sleek...

A stylish and powerful Android handset, which should stay better-looking for longer than the competition

Motorola RAZR 2 Preview

 

Preview: The original king of thin is back - and this time it's crammed 2GB of memory, stereo Bluetooth and HSPDA connectivity into an even thinner body

Lots of internal memory. Great build quality. Big external screen. HSPDA connectivit

No memory card slot. Joystick still a bit fiddly

Preview: The original king of thin is back – and this time it's crammed 2GB of memory, stereo Bluetooth and HSPDA connectivity into an even thinner body

The new RAZR now has the specs to match its form factor – but is the design too old school for today's hipsters?

Motorola Razr

 

Stylish, impressively specified and simple to use, the Razr loses its sheen when it comes music and movies

Slim and light; big, vivid screen; high-spec

Audio and video performance is found wanting
