Motorola Launches Droid RAZR – A New Smartphone

Motorola at a joint event with Verizon in New York City announced its new smartphone, the Motorola Droid RAZR. The company praises its new phone as “the world’s thinnest smartphone.”

The new Droid RAZR shows off a dual-core processor, 4G LTE on Verizon network, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display and of course a profile that genuinely declares it ‘thin.’

Some of the most significant features of Motorola’s Droid RAZR are:

Thin and Lightweight

The major characteristic of original Motorola RAZR was its quality of being thin. It was a fantastic phone which is glossy, attractive as well as thin all at the same time. The similar approach has been used by Motorola to design its new Droid RAZR.

The new Droid RAZR measures around 7.1 mm thick, which makes it really graceful. What Motorola claims that it is the thinnest 4G LTE device in the market and perhaps the slimmest smartphone overall.

The device isn’t only thin, but also very lightweight. If you hold it in your hand, you will be surprised and may wonder how Motorola has managed to keep it so light.

Screen is Awesome

The Droid RAZR features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLDED Advanced qHD screen which is magnificent. Although, it is far too early to compare it with iPhone 4/iPhone 4S or other rival phones, it seems that the device has much clear and bright display, particularly when compared the Droid Bionic.

The company also claimed that the Droid RAZR would be the first phone that will support streaming Netflix in HD – great news for movie fans for sure. However, we have to wait to find out what actually the difference will it make in real-time.

Supersede Droid Bionic

The Bionic is another great phone by Motorola, which was recently launched after months of delays. However, it failed to stand against the much popular RAZR.

Despite having some common features, the Droid RAZR outclasses it in terms of its better battery, better screen, thinner dimensions and of course plethora of accessories. Still both the phones shares same dual-core processor and 4G LTE network.

Battery Life Uncertainties

Although, the standby time ands talk time seem pretty impressive, it is not clear if those figures were recorded on 3G, 2G or 4G LTE. Motorola didn’t provide us with clear details about the battery life of Droid RAZR.

What we can assume from our previous experiences that the battery life will do well on 3G, but with 4G enabled, it may not give you long battery time.


Certainly, Motorola and Verizon have managed to bring something remarkable in the smartphone market. The first impression of the Droid RAZR suggests that it would be a daring competitor for the Samsung Galaxy S II and iPhone 4S.

Motorola has already produced something magical and iconic in the form of original RAZR. What we have to see whether the latest Droid RAZR would be able to get the elevated status for a smartphone or would it appear to be a better phone than original RAZR.

The pre-order for Droid RAZR will open from October 27th, while it will be available in stores and online by next month. If you are interested in placing a pre-order for new Droid RAZR, you can do it on October 27th for $ 299.99.
