I bought this phone on 11/11/11 after some
serious back-and-forth about waiting for the
Rezound and Galaxy Nexus. While I was in the
store I was fortunate enough to get to play with
the Rezound demo the staff had just received,
and I still chose the Razr. And here's why: Screen- the super AMOLED screen on the Razr
blew me away. It just looked so sharp compared
to the Rezound. I know the resolution on the
Rezound is better (720p), but I still felt the Razr
screen won. Battery- the Razr has a larger battery (1780
mAH). I went on a road trip this weekend, and
even with heavy usage (watching videos,
playing games, taking pictures) and switching
between wifi, 3g and 4g, the battery lasted me
about 6 hours one day and 9 the other (from 100 to 10%). Then today for a "normal" work day of
chatting, texting, some video/games, it has lasted
me over 12 hours and is only at 20% battery
now. Part of the reason are the "smart actions"
and processor speeds, discussed below. Processor- this has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor,
lower than the 1.5GHz dual-core of the Rezound.
However I noticed very little difference between
the two phones when switching between apps,
and for loading web pages both will be super
fast on Verizon's 4G network. Also, the lower processor probably contributes to the longer
battery life. Speaker- I was excited by the Rezound's beats
audio, but the external speaker is not any more
impressive than other phones; the key is the
headphones. That being said, the speaker on the
Razr is louder, but makes a crackling noise when
someone is talking (in video or on speakerphone). This is a huge drawback for me
as I use my speakerphone a lot. You can get
around it by not using the full volume, but you
shouldn't have to do that, imo. Camera- Here the rezound wins, with a better,
wide-angle lens, but the Razr's will still capture
1080p video, 8MP pictures, and is perfectly
satisfactory for a phone. Smart Actions - this is the coolest feature of the
phone! You can set it to pretty much do anything
from certain triggers. For instance, when the
display is off, at night, it will switch to silent
mode. Or when I am connected to my home
wireless, it will turn off GPS and 4G data. Some final thoughts: Gorilla Glass and Kevlar
backing are a huge plus. Also, this phone is so
thin and light! After playing with the Rezound
and Razr for a few minutes, I just couldn't put the
Razr down, it's weight and screen converted me!
Motorola really awesome device never launched before. Really its the best device till date and smarty makes u diferent....really m happy having this..
I tried LG Revolution and Razr today at a Verizon store.
The screen of Razr is a disappointment despite it uses super amoled. The dots are clearly visible. When I saw Revolution, i thought its resolution was 1280*720. Much better than Razr despite lower resolution. Sorry moto, you could do better.
The XT912 version has NO GSM network connectivity, ONLY CSMA. It can be found on the Motorola US site when comparing 2 device (e.g. http://www.motorola.com/Consum...ctId=73912). Specs on GSMArena need to be corrected. I nearly ordered one from the US because of the 4G support, but luckily decided to check the specs for the US model.
Firstly like to APPRECIATE motorola for bringing in such a masterpiece........this Droid is an answer to the galaxy s 2 and trust me this gadget is outstanding ......everything jus comes perfect wid this one....
what is different razr and razr xt912? and it comes with crystal talk or crystal talk plus?

Hey guys, here's the actual specs for this model.
According to Motorola US and Verizon, this model does not contain GSM. Can anyone confirm the availability of GSM?
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2011Does anyone know, is Motorola DROID RAZR support Flash?Thanks!yes, flah is supported
....I am glad that Motorola is making the right moves; I almost bought Xperia arc S but I have to think about splash resistant, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 7 mm, Gorilla glass,...and of course 12 hour talking time....Droid HD..
I am tied of heavy, thick (>12mm) Nokia with maximum two days between charging....
