Pros Best feature is when its in your pocket
Cons earpiece is a bit directional, side volume adjust hard to hit
Summary The phone is everything a normal modern motorola is, like a V505 or V600, but in one small package. Its best feature is its ability to disappear in your pocket. Small, light, durable, super large and bright screen. Interface functions faster than V600 in my experiece. The volume and ringer change buttons were moved from the base to the flip top, so when the phone is open its a bit more difficult to adjust. Great RF/reception. No dropped calls yet. Decent battery life especially considering the large internal screen. External screen should be rectangular because it makes viewing incoming caller or messages difficult because the text is so much smaller than on a rectangular lcd. Overall, the best phone I've had since the V600.
Pros Slim, easy to use
Cons Very fragile, breaks easy.
Summary It's a good little phone, has excellent blue tooth abilities. I'm a cellphone tech and I see these phones all the time. The V3 Razr though will break easy if dropped. The hinged area of these phones are very easy to break. When they do break you have to replace the front housing, (about $18.00), the keyboard (about $40.00) and about half the time the metal keymat (about $30.00) Labor involved is going to be around $35.00. Parts for the black special edition Razr though are not available and needs to be sent back to Motorola for the repairs.
Pros Slim, good features, great looking
Cons Low memory, camera just ok
Summary I have been a faithful blackberry user for a couple of years. I hated having to carry a fat bulky phone around, but I figured I needed my email on the go for my job. I was about to buy the Samsung i730 (which by the way, is an unbelievable phone),but I decided to slim down and buy the black razr instead. I love this phone: it is tiny and easily fits in any pocket. The screen quality is good and comes with good features. If I wanted to, I can also get my work email fowarded to the phone, kind of like the blackberry. I also like the mp3 ringtones and picture phonebook (even though camera quality is only fair). Nevertheless, I am happy I bought this phone instead of the i730 and would recommend the razr to anyone looking for a new phone. As for Cingular service, it is excellent in NJ/Philly area. In fact, I find that it is better than Verizon and T-Mobile in this area. I had great phones for Verizon and T-Mobile, but I am happiest with Cingular's service on the razr. Hope this helps.
"Beautiful phone"on by MacGarnicle
Pros Bluetooth, great reception, big screen, quad band
Cons Lousy phone book, OS
Summary I personally really like this phone. Not only is it great looking, but it gets the job done. Missing features that some people might be looking for, but this isn't a Smart Phone. If you want one of those, get the Audiovox SMT5600.
Pros Great style, Very reliable signal, sturdy build, great battery life, no lost calls
Cons small screen
Summary I got this phone from WireFly, after rebates, it cost me $0. After using this phone for 6 months now, I would pay the $250.00 that the phone was listed for.
Battery life has not been any problem for me, as others have stated. I charge up every 3 or 4 days.
I travel alot for my job and have had bett er than expected signal strength. I was just at a hockey game last night, four of the people I was with had no service on their phones. I had 5 bars. This phone filters out background noise very well also, weather in the car or in a noisy arena.
Yes, this phone has a small screen, but if I want to go on the web, I boot up the laptop. If I want to watch videos, I watch TV.
When you get this phone, please read the manual. It covers alot of features that are not often mentioned because of all the hype over how the phone looks.
Looks good, operates great, no lost calls, great battery life= great phone.
