Mid-range due ot it's price.

This offers power and battery life like no other phone in it's price range (£345). As well as screen size per inch, with great SAMOLED display with almost 500 cd/m2 brightness. Beating other SAMOLED devices by miles. Now you basically get the brightness as an LCD, but the black level, colors and contrast of the AMOLED.

If you want higher screen res, you also need bigger phone. Only the HTC 8X (windows phone) will offer higher resolution on same screen size, and it's a bulky and more pricey WP phone not yet available.

Top range expensive phones like S3 with 4.8" and One X with 4.7" screens and big bezels has same battery and smaller (1800 mAh in the One X), as this compact and palm friendly phone. This plus smart actions will let you use your phone much more between charges :)

If this phone has an unlocked bootloader and someone manages to put Windows XP/7 on this baby I'm gonna sell my current smartphone and PC just to get this phone for an affordable 420.
Yeeehaaa! :D

This phone is mid-range because there are better phones out there.
Phones with better:
- resolution
- more RAM
- more battery power

They had this on the BBC and they called it a mid range phone. Why mid range?

Sounds like a lot of phone for the money, especially when you consider the frankly obnoxious prices of the iPhone and S3.

You may not like Intel but their 1.6GHz Atom in Lava Xolo 900 has outperformed Tegra 3 and dualcore krait on several levels, exept multithreading. This 2GHz one will be even faster. At £345 it's a bargain.

I wonder if Moto have implemented any form of "palm rejection" algorithm (like found on laptop touchpads) to deal with accidental screen presses caused by such a narrow bezel? I often find that the flap of skin between my thumb and index finger can accidentally trigger touch-screens.

PS: Intel sucks.

I'm sick of all these Motorola Razr mobiles that never have an FM Radio. Would it really kill them to add it or is it just Google being obnoxious? When will they get it through their stupid head that not everyone wants or needs streaming bandwidth just to listen to FM. Another Epic Fail from Moto and Google.

This intel chip is actually ahead of ANY ARM based processor, be it Exynos, Krait or Tegra. Please get your facts right before posting, otherwise you're just misleading people.

The intel chip seems to make more sense with WP8 - this seems like joke running on Android to cover up software issues.

Atom does have the most processing power per core .
But at the same time , it only have single core while krait can reach 4 core .

1.6ghz atom is as good as tegra 3 / exynos 4 / krait dual core and 2ghz certainly better than those .

But then krait have quad now with adreno 3xx . And tegra and exynos is working on cortex a15 based architecture now .

Intel need something like pentium D or celeron to pawn them all .

In my opinion 2Ghz is nothing special...
Anyway if I needed to by new smartphone, I shouldn`t buy this one. In my opinion Motorola is good manufacturer but design is not enough good.
Waiting for the next generation.

For performace review of Intel Atom (Medfield) with rest of processors check out This is definitely a great package. The only downside is 4G availability if you care.
