Pros Amzingly fast speed, great call quality, ease of use
Cons None that i can think of.
Summary I have used this phone for the last 5 days, after dropping my Blackberry Bold. I was apprehensive to learning a new OS, going to a larger phone, and battery life being too short. I am very pleased with the phone in all three aspects. The current oerating system, not sure if it is gingerbread, butternut, cheesecake or whatever other ridiculous name they put on it, but it is ver yeasy to use; almost intuitve. The speed of the phone, and browser capability is also amazing. Obviosuly coming from Blackberry, where the browser is awful makes the Rzr shine, but it is so fast and easy to download and install apps, I am a convert for sure. The battery life has been "fine". Not great, not bad. IT definitely is not what the Bold was, but how could it be? Finally, the phone is so thin and light, the overall larger footprint doesnt bother me at all, and fits in a pair of jeans very easily.
overall I love this phone....and would recommend this to anybody!
Pros Beautifully designed, fabulous display, seems extremely rugged and sturdy, easy to hold and use.
Cons I think the jury's still out on how well the battery holds up in typical use. I think it'll be okay, but needs charging as soon as am home in the evening.
Summary Only had the phone for four days now, but am enjoying it totally. Unlike my wife's iPhone 4, the processor horsepower makes any action or task super fast, no lag at all. Am totally satisfied with the device so far, only concern is how the battery's going to work going forward. With such a small form factor, there can be only so much battery within.
Pros 1 Interface
2 Gorgeous screen
3 Speed is outstanding
Cons BATTERY LIFE
Summary The battery life is atrocious. 2 hr on the web and it is dead.
They should have kept the thickness at the camera lens for full
back and tripled battery capactiy. It would be just as comfortable
Pros Slim - Sturdy - Feels high-end in your hand - Modern - FAST - FULL HDMI MIRRORING with a $6 purchase of a micro HDMI cord (Awesome!) - Big screen
Cons Camera is ok..takes great pictures outdoors, and 'ok' indoors - Initially battery life, but that can be improved using the built-in Battery Extender.
Summary Initially the phone rebooted itself about 4 times when I first got it. Once it did it that specific day, it hasn't done it sense (been about 2 weeks). Also, the battery life was atrocious for the first week but if you review the built-in App that shows phone setup etc there's an app you can open to manage all aspects of the phone's O/S/functionality. I applied the "Battery Extender" option and the phone now provides at minimum 12 hours of useage at a time.Typo - sense = since.
The camera is ok, but it is a definite improvement over the original Droid and the Droid X. Everyone I've shown the phone to has been impressed; a current iPhone user is planning on switching to a "Droid" in March when their contract is up because "the iphone is getting boring".
The phone feels very comfortable in the hand when using it as a phone; and fyi - Voice calls are superior to any phone I've used in the recent past (Droid Incredible 2, HTC Thunderbolt).
Also, not sure if it's the phone's internal processor or Gingerbread (current iteration of Android O/S) but everything on the phone is buttery smooth.

Pros + Wow Factor
+ Amazing display
+ zippy processor
+ Quality Materials and build quality (The anti-Samsung)
+ Water resistant
+ Best 4G battery life
+ Great software like Motocast, SmartActions and Government level encryption
Cons The only legit complaints can be about the Camera. It's not great, but its not bad. The camera is better than most smart phones indoors and quite good outdoors.
Summary I upgraded from a Thunderbolt and I ain't looking back. This phone does everything well and several things great. Motorola has put everything into this phone and it shows. This is no Bionic flop; the Droid Razr is a winner. A New Year's resolution from Moto of an Ice Cream Sandwich, will only make this phone that much sweeter.As I said in my original post, the camera is the weak link. I have since picked up Camera Zoom FX from the Market. All camera issues immediately went away. Now the camera is fast and accurate. This tells me that the all the camera issues from focusing to white balance are software problems. On one hand it's great that the hardware is fine and easily fixed. On the other hand, it's sad that Moto would release their premier phone with bad camera drivers. Hope they fix it in an update because you really should have to by camera software just to take advantage of the hardware. If the included camera software functioned as Camera Zoom without the editing bells and whistles I would add the half star becuase this phone would be perfect.
