Hands-on with the Motorola RAZR

The ultimate Android handset?


The new Motorla RAZR was officially launched in the UAE today and should go on sale within the next couple of weeks for AED 2,599. The new RAZR is the thinnest handset in the world- measuring just 7.1mm and is built of gorilla glass in the front and KEVLAR fiber on the back to make it strong and sturdy.

We were at the launch event and managed to get some time with this sleek device that is also loaded as far as specs are concerned. Check out the following video

Although the RAZR is incredibly thin, I found it be a bit on the big size for everyday use. The following photo compares it to the iPhone 4.

Other than the size, the only other disappointment is the lack of an LTE model in the region. But that is understandable as Etisalat has only launched data services on their LTE network and voice is not yet supported. The Motorola RAZR looks fantastic from every other aspect. It is very well built and surprisingly light. the build quality reeks of premium and the Super AMOLED qHD screen is just gorgeous. We should hopefully be getting a review sample soon
