I had the Galaxy S2 as a replacement for my sadly damaged beyone repair Sensation XL and was hugely disappointed. I traded that and bot the RAZRi based on my previous experiences with Motorola's and the Intel chipset. I have to say it is, in my opinion, a much better phone than the S2, is a very quick device and, as alluded to earlier in the posts, of great build quality.

Camera quality will differ greatly and divide opinion dependent on the user. I certainly dont think it is any worse than the S2 and have taken some fantastic pictures. The 1080p video camera is also really good although I am keen to film some live music to see the outcome as the sound quality was extremely poor on the S2 (although the quality of the footage was good).

It also has a great battery life which is another plus point for me. I like to listen to music a lot on my phone so staying power is a must. Only downside is the 8GB internal memory but when you can buy a 32GB SD card on Amazon for less than £15 its not a huge issue.

Overall - I really rate this phone, good on call sound quality, great speaker output, clear screen, rock solid build -may the price should have been set at £299GBP but with the many great tariff deals out there you can get this for free anyway.

Happy days :)

Motorola doesn't care about their Asian consumers. Why can't you bring this to Southeast Asia? tsk

qHD pentile screen at this price? Im willing to forgive the pentile just to have an Intel processor in my phone, but letting moto rip me another one, that is too much to accept.

We can all agree that S3 Mini is an embarrassing and shameful phone, but please lets not use it to defend other overprices phones. Razr i is too expensive, what the shameless samsung does is not an excuse for other manufacturers to rip their buyers another one.

Right now it seems to be a good idea to NOT be like samsung if you want respect.

>>Lots of dissatisfied user world wide now.. see the link..

1. Google now owns Motorola.
2. Look at RAZR M/I - little customized by Moto, so easy to release new Android updates
