I got to play around with one too and agree that its amazing. I just got my Droid 3 a few days ago and the camera wouldn't work and the store said that I would have to wait till tomorrow to get a replacement Droid 3. I am now starting to consider waiting and just going with the Razr.
I got to spend about about 20 minutes today with the razr at my local V store. It was still wrapped in it's protective covert so i can not comment on tactile feel. But the phone is amazingly fast and silky smooth to operate. Compared to my X running Liquid 3.0 which i just installed last night, the razr is crazy fast!
It is a big phone! Do not be fooled, it feels much larger in your hand than an X. Single hand typing using Swype will not be easy for anyone with small hands. It is insanely thin and light. It is easily 1/3 the weight of my X. It does not feel like a "real" phone, it is that light! But, the construction is simply superior!
I have read two complaints about the phone. One said the screen has a green hue. I would absolutely disagree. It looked on par color wise with my X. But, i would say the brightness may not be as high. The second complaint was about the volume buttons and three lack of tactile feel. Again, i completely disagree. There is very little play in the keys but they are exactly the same size as the volume keys on my X. And they have a hard click feel to them when you move them. I find them very reassuring in the sense you know you are hitting them correctly.
Well, that is my take on it! Definitely a worthy upgrade from my beloved X!

I stopped by our local VZ store and played with two new Razr's. I bricked the first when playing with the Text option. It came up with a warning that it was running the Verizon demo and gave us three options, but none of the options worked. Could not turn power off either. We tried the power/volume up button reset several times, but it would not reset. The tech was still working on it when I left. The second phone worked well on everything I tired. Cruising the internet was smooth. Some of the web sites have a special cell phone option, but it is not necessary on this phone. The display is large enough that you can expand the portion you need and select your window. Also, even in 3G it was very fast and silky smooth. The contacts organization was great and email worked well. I played with some of the settings and I really like the display. I think if you give Moto Blur a few days you will love it, especially with Ice Cream Sandwich. Some of the new HD displays are very dark, but the Razr is bright and the colors were sharp.
I am a hard keyboard person, so I am trying to get used to the soft keyboard. All my friends tell me to give the soft keyboard a try and I’ll get used to it. I mistyped a few words, but it usually catches them and I was able to edit before sending. It has 2 keyboard options, one with dedicated number keys and one with them on the shift above the top row of letters. Both worked well, but it will take me a while to get used to instead of a hard keyboard. I tried the voice option for texting and it was pretty impressive except for names. Overall, it is large, very thin, very light, and feels good in my hands, but I have been using a Blackberry lately. I think I am about 90% sold, but would like to also play with the Nexus.
I got 20 - 30 minutes of hands on with this phone today. I've been holding out for the Nexus but I'm pretty impressed/tempted after playing with the Razr.
One thing I noticed though is that while I was playing with it, the screen got really hot (it was plugged in). I have had lots of Moto Droid phones have their backs heat up under heavy use but never the screen. I suppose since the phone is so thing, the heat has to disapate somehow but I am wondering what the long term effects on the display will be or if it will affect touch sensitivity.
Good point.... I'm only half way sold on this phone. I have a person at best buy holding me one for Friday... I'm trading my bionic for it....... I think.
