"Attention-grabbing phone with good features"4.0 starson by mightymouse
Pros: Screens, video camera, good easy to use functionality, okay games, bluetooth
Cons: Easy to smudge keypad (who am i kidding), lack of expandable memory
Summary: I managed to grab this phone cheap off of ebay, to avoid the msrp price tag, and to replace my quickly outdating v400. However, after having this phone for a while, I realized that it was only a v400 in a beautiful, more sleeker shell.
I'm not saying that that is a con, however, because its perfect for my situation. I am a student, I use the phone often but not at lenghths, I rarely use the internet on it because my pda has wifi. The added bluetooth functionality allows it to talk to my pda, by wirelessly transfering freshly taken photos that I can easy share with my buddies- which is great.
Now to cut to the chase- this phone is 90% looks. I'm not kidding, and thats because I'm a sucker for beautiful electronics. This phone grabs attention more than anything i've owned.
One thing I don't like about the razr is the font of motorola's phone OS. I thought that they might change it, but i guess i can live with it. I also don't like how the keypad smudges (and it shows), and how i can't use a mini sd or something like that. I knew it wasn't a feature in the beginning but with a phone that can take videos, 7 mb just can't cut the chase.
I noticed that many silver moto v3 users had an issue with their earpiece having low volume. I personally think that the earpiece on the black one has been improved- i think that it is too loud!
The video camera functionality is also quite cool- it records sound too. Its great for short clips of funny things that you see but isn't worth carrying a full-fledged video camera around for. It serves its purpose well.
In conclusion, the phone looks good, the phone performs well for my standards, and the phone looks good. I highly recommend it for business users and students who only use it to talk to people and occasionally take pictures and want to look cool/professional, and i don't recommend it to people who are looking for smart phone functionality.
A word of advice to those who are whining about the price tag: its thin, and beautiful, which gives motorola an excuse to make it expensive. And to those who wanted it to be a smart phone, I hope your wishes come true, because I would most certainly buy it, to avoid carrying both my pda and cellphone around.
However, for now, this phone is definitely a step forward for cellphone companies. The age of ugly bulky oval cellphones is over- look forward to thin, beautiful cellphones that have crazy features that would make your grandparents cry.
