"Huge Disappointment! Nothing like the original RAZR."1.5 starson by DimmieA
Pros: All Kevlar back is really handy and scratch resistant.
The metal band around the phone is not in my taste, but I'm sure most will like it.
Cons: Worse screen that the RAZR(side by side comparison shows much worse contrasts).
Heavier and thicker.
Slower than the RAZR!
Camera is worse.
Lots Android features went the iPhone way.
Summary: Much worse screen that the predecessor (side by side comparison shows much worse contrasts). You may not notice by itself, but I was unlucky to put them side by side with my old RAZR (while back-upping) and it was striking.
Heavy and thick without the battery being noticeably better.
Slow and laggy. Apps open slower than on the original RAZR. That is not something you would expect and doesn't make any sense.
The camera is horrible. Often out of focus and you can't switch the shutter noise off anymore. I've literally tried for 15 minutes to take a picture of an object up close and have finally given up and fired up my old RAZR to take it.
The notification ringtones and melodies from the RAZR are gone and you can't get them back (easily) without rooting the device.
A lot of good Android features went the iPhone way and you cannot get them back without rooting your phone.
The original DROID RAZR was the envy of all of my iPhone friends. They borrowed it from me to take photos, often took and played with it, while sighing. Some even switched to Android because of it.
Now Motorola produced an iPhone copy (metal band, home screen at the left, less bottom buttons...) and kinda proved Apple right with all the lawsuits. Sad...
I have finally given up and went back to my RAZR today. It's really a tough decision to make and that's why I went and am writing this.
