Had this phone now for about 2 years, it still looks as new, its been dropped many times on the floor, the kevlar shell saves it each time.
The best part is that everyday I have to use this phone, i am surprised how good it is. I did a lot of research before buying, and am proud of myself having ended up with such a master phone. And I've tried Galaxy 3 and 4, Iphone at the same time, always go back to this Razr i.
Battery still works basically as good as when new, so no need for replaceable, as one commenter noted.
It is also strange that there are no new phones on the market that tempts me more than the Razr i,even though its 2 years old!
Its so good I actually picked up a new second one for cheap, in case my gets stolen or broken.
You can get it for less than 200 EURs, and its the best phone, and size is great. Dont join the douche-race of having the newest phone, get the best phone instead, the Razr i. And no I do not own Moto stocks.
Just my honest review of phone.

I'm currently onto my second handset, and this handset has been repaired FOUR, yes FOUR times for the same repeated fault. This time the actual store supervisor was worried about storing the phone on site prior to sending it off for repair as he was worried it might cause a fire.

When I first got the phone it was amazing, some of the functions stopped working, even after hard and soft resets, and would NOT buy an apple, but unfortunately am considering a Sony Z1 Compact, based on size and specs.

About the battery stats that you are asking for, I must say that I charge this phone every night, even if it never reaches the 15% of battery.

However you can do whatever you want with it during the day. Sometimes I finish my day with almost 3 hours of screen on and I have always GPS, 3G, Wifi and Bluetooth activated.

Honestly, with this phone you don't need to be careful with the battery if you charge it every night. And nowadays this is a real pleasure.

May you tell me how to set the Device to achieve 64 Hours of Battery Power because my Battery lasts just about 20 Hours. Thank you in advance for your answer!

Problem is that only Samsung offers this feature nowadays, but their phones are just crap.

He can multi task via his one physical and one virtual core when it's needed. When no heavy task is required it's not wasting battery with two cores.
Do you really think, more CPU cores == more power?
This bad thing is this intel chip is not getting attention, since in this range, pretty much destroys every CPU when it comes to functionality, multi tasking and battery life.

This phone is brilliant.
The battery life shames an iPhone while the call clarity is superb. When Google designed this phone and got Motorola to make it they made a winner.
The screen is bright and vibrant. The dual core cpu never struggles.
Worth every penny and welcoem back Motorola :-)
