MOTOROLA RAZR REVIEW is available in Canada for a few weeks on Bell and WIND Mobile. For the most part,
it’s not particularly attractive with RAZR HD LTE appearing on Rogers soon,
but it’s easy to justify anything as long as it has a reasonable price tag. Motorola RAZR V has familiar model factor and software elements from native Android RAZR, including Kevlar support and smart actions.
Smart actions are still very useful,
provided you take the time to prepare them. The LED indicator lamp is always a bonus, and for many people, its absence will be a deal-breaker. Although it’s more blurry than Droid RAZR, I still find that RAZR V has a sleek and elegant design.
She has encountered some important response problems, although there is a rhyme or little cause for it to occur. Motorola RAZR V is not competing with the alternatives currently available in the Canadian market, especially without LTE connectivity. None of my on-line microphones worked with the RAZR V, which made her not a music player.
The Bottom line
Motorola RAZR V is a modest update to the latest RAZR, but the absence of LTE may stop many users. Even among mid-range phones, Bell and WIND both enjoy competitive alternatives, and the RAZR V has a few distinct characteristics that distinguish it. The smart actions are still pretty cool,
the RAZR V’s form factor hasn’t lost its charm yet, but he’s on his way to becoming his phone long ago.
Practical training on Motorola RAZR V
you’ll notice in this video that a shortcoming was made before I talked about “smart actions” and a little bit of unresponsive when I started moving on to it.
It took me about four or five times to try to tilt the phone before tapping the screen, and for whatever reason, it worked.
There were similar delays that could not be explained anywhere while on the device,
which definitely discouraged the experience.
Motorola RAZR V hardware review
Although the general form factor borrows heavily from the previous Motorola RAZR, there are few modifications. For example,
there are no capacitive switches at the front, the on / off switch has been switched up, and the micro HDMI port has been removed.
The left-hand board for accessing the microSD memory card and SIM card slots is a very difficult problem, but this is not something most users will have to deal with anyway.
The speaker is awesome and small – yes, more than I expected from most smartphone headsets. I was also not excited because the pause / live play controls on my headphone series do not work with RAZR V. I am glad to see that there is at least an LED indicator. Many Android devices do not have it.
Motorola Razr review: Cheat sheet
- The Razr unfolds to reveal a 6.2-inch display, which feels futuristic but the plastic display can show small lumps or dents.
- The Quick View display up front comes in handy for quick actions, such as glancing at notifications, taking selfies, and using Google Assistant.
- The. Snapdragon 710 processor provides decent performance, but this is nowhere near as fast as leading flagship phones.
- Don’t expect much from the 16MP camera, which took disappointing shots compared to the iPhone 11 Pro and Pixel 4.
- Lasting just 6 hours, the Razr’s battery life is about half that of the longest-lasting phones.
Motorola Razr review: Release date and price
The Razr costs $1,500 and is available now through Verizon, Walmart, and Motorola’s online store. At Verizon, you can pay off the phone in monthly installments, which breaks out to $62.49 per month over 24 months.
Verizon is also offering a deal on the Razr that could save you a substantial amount of money if you’re switching to Big Red from another carrier.
Trade-in an eligible phone, and you can get up to $500 in bill credits on the Razr (again, spread out over 24 months); you’ll get another $200 in the form of a prepaid Mastercard for switching to Verizon. Current Verizon customers can get up to $300 in bill credits for their trade-in toward a new Razr.
The Razr has two displays: a 6.2-inch, 21:9 plastic OLED panel on the inside with HD resolution (you read that right; no full-HD for this pricey foldable) as well as the aforementioned 2.7-inch, 4:3 OLED panel on the outside,
Having a 6.2-inch display on a device that you could easily forget is in your pocket is a pretty great perk,
but the screen itself exhibits some of those classic foldable characteristics. The plastic screen is not anywhere near as smooth and consistent as glass; there are horizontal creases cutting across the regions that bend, which you sometimes notice when the display is outstretched. Whatever film is protecting the panel lends an orange peel-Esque iridescence under bright indoor light.
You’ll find but two cameras on the new Razr — a single-lens exterior shooter tied to a 16-megapixel sensor,
a 5-MP front-facing camera concealed in a notch inside that also houses the earpiece.
The Razr’s unique form factor means that the 16-MP main shooter can either be used as a conventional rear camera
a common shortcut that’s appeared on a number of Motorola handsets over the years
you’ll call up the camera, which instantly fills the Quick View display with a little viewfinder,
so you can quickly immerse yourself in your surroundings and return to your business. Alternatively, you can open the phone at that point and the main display will preemptively open the camera app, saving you a step.
