The ultra-thin Motorola RAZR was once the most sought after cell phone in the United States. And while there’s little chance its smartphone namesake, the Motorola Droid RAZR, will ever reach the same heights, the new Android phone is high on my recommendation list for early 2012.
The Droid RAZR, like the flip-phone for which it was named, is all about thinness – and it is remarkably thin, just 0.28-inches thick for most of its body. However, there is the Moto-bump, a thicker section at the top of the device similar to the Droid X and Droid X 2 smartphones. In addition to being thin, the Droid RAZR is also tough; parts of its exterior shell is Kevlar and its screen is covered in Gorilla glass.
A dual-core 1.2GHhz Cortex-A9 CPU powers the Droid RAZR, making it very snappy both in general use and with more demanding apps. 1GB of RAM also makes it responsive while running several apps at once.
