    So how's everyone liking the RAZR?

    Hey guys/gals, I was at BJ's the other day and played with the RAZR and I really like it. My friend is due for an upgrade, and he's not a big cell phone junkie and he wants either the D3 or the RAZR. He's not too concerned with the different screens, more/less RAM. He just wants a fast, reliable Droid. Would you reccomend the RAZR? Also, if I find the Nexus is too big I might get one too if you guys are happy with it, and think that it won't die in a year

    D RAZR

    My opinions are based off of coming from the DX1 and Charge.

    -Razr is EXTREMELY fast and snappy. Blows both the Charge and DX1 out of the water. I have to say that I do like the Charge's screen better, but it is far superior to the DX1. My biggest PROS

    -Build quality. This is why I love Motorola devices. It is a great piece of equiptment, feels very solid unlike ALL Samsung phones I have used which are WAY too plasticky, scratch prone, cheap feeling and looking. I presume the G Nexus will be the same.
    -Fast
    -Stock email application (very important to me)
    -No need to use a 3rd party Launcher IMO. The Charge lagged and Launcher EX was a must. The Razr is smooth and have not experienced any lag whatsoever.
    -Battery - I actually dont mind the non-removable battery, it contributes to a more solid build. The performance of the battery is still up for debate, need to calibrate it for a week or so and mess around with settings. However, initial impressions is that battery life will be comparable if not better than the Charge. I can handle that. 13hrs-14hrs a day, somewhat heavy usage, 4 email accounts being pushed to phone, constant 4G, about an hr of phone calls, and a good amount of texting throughout the day.

    If your buddy wants a reliable, solid phone that will last I would say Razr is the way to go. Moto radio's are top notch and can't beat the build quality. My DX1 looks new compared to the Charge. I have only had the charge for 5-6 months and it is all scratched up including the screen and I am pretty careful with my phones.

    I am surprised he narrowed it down to Razr and D3??? Completely different style phones. Does he NEED a physical keyboard? If not, its a no brainer in my opinion.

    Thanks for the review, he's coming from an EnV 2 so he's a little wary on leaving the familialarity of the physical keyboard.

    I came from the env 1 to the OG DROID cause I thought needed a keyboard. It turned out I was more comfortable on The virtual keyboard...which is why I went to the bionic instead of the d3.

    He may feel the same way. Either way, from a feature phone to a smart phone he's gonna realize the battery life is not the same. My env lasted for days.

    The rzr's screen is crap, utter pixelated crap. I was playing with a demo unit yesterday and I agree with everyone who says so.

    Likewise, yes it is fast and snappy. Heck I was playing flash games on kongregate and the phone could keep up with most of them (Jobs, R.I.P but eat your heart out). Couldn't tell you much about the user experience, honestly it seems the same as any other blurred out Moto unit. It certainly feels solidly built, but I want to refer you to the user who had a very hot unit which was MELTING THE ADHESIVES OUT OF THE PHONE. I, being a poweruser, will stay away from this one.

    coming from an og droid, loving it so far. super fast, good camera and i actually dont mind not having a physical keyboard. also found the screen on the og droid was much better only when the droid razr's screen was dimmed. wen its full brightness or even like 80%, it was excellent. ive gotten use to it and doesn't bother me at all. no pixelation issue for me. i guess some people are just particular picky when it comes to that.

    Wow "utter pixilated crap", I wouldn't go that far. My screen is not overly pixilated whatsoever. I was referring to the whites looking greyish when the screen is dim. Furthermore, I wouldn't worry about your phone oozing. More likely than not it was an isolated incident given that this is the first report out of the thousands that have sold. I had everything possible running on this thing to try and kill the battery and it barely got warm.

    To OP, your friend should really go to VZW and start typing away, see if he can get used to it. I was nervous at first as well but I never used the keyboard on the D1. Plus Swype is your friend.

    The screen looks pretty darn good to me to be a pentile. I guess i am not looking hard enough for the flaws. They put a durn screen protector on it when I bought it yesterday. Just took it off and MUCH better. Camera had a green tint to pictures but will tweak on it this week.
