    They only said it was water resistant, not water proof.

    As in my screen can get wet and I don't have to reboot it, it doesn't become totally unresponsive like my Droid X1. My RAZR sometimes works fine with the screen still wet.

    It was always water resistant, never waterproof. That would be one HELL of a claim. Here's a video showing it:


    Also, the phone is pretty damn strong in other areas as evidenced by various other threads and people dropping it (myself included). Don't let one "drop it in the sink" post sway you so easily. It most certainly isn't BS though no phone is bulletproof

    Is this a serious post? It's water resistant, not water proof.

    I firmly believe that the razr is no tougher than any other phone on the market.. there have been post about a 6 in drop cracking the screen and also post on 5 foot falls onto the screen and no damage and that's true with any phone.. my bolt fell out my pocket from a 6 foot ladder prolly a good 7 to 8 feet.. the back cover went flying one way the battery the other no damage at all!! And my buddy was texting on his bolt got off the couch dropped his phone to the wood floor and the screen shattered my point is all this talk about the phone being more durable is total BS the razr is a awesome phone but its no more "durable" than any other phone

    Did u read the end of the post??? u guys are missing my point and that is its all a gimmick the only thing kevlar on the whole phone is the battery cover how many of u break ur battery cover??? And the water coating also.. they say that to get people just to buy it thinking its tough and crap. When its only as durable as every other phone on the market.. I've used the razr quite a bit a I can def say its no more solid than my old droidx or my newer Tbolt...yea its a heck of a phone but will break just as easy as any other phone.

    Yea durability from drops... depending on how the phone hits it can either never get a scratch or crack or can scratch n crack on the first drop. Agree there. I dont think Moto ever claimed that it was indestructible. What the manufacture claims and what users claim sometimes is 2 different things. I actually think they used the same material on the DX1 battery cover. Its hard to scratch too. Scratch it, rub the scratch and its gone. So I kinda agree about the Kevlar.

    The water...resistance...that Moto advertises.... So far in my experience its not a gimmick. I have a Droid X1 and Droid 1 that needs either a battery pull or reboot when it gets wet to stop it from spazzing out quickly...and thats just from a wet screen. If not I need to wait a few minutes. And sometimes a few minutes still doesnt help. My RAZR can sometimes work fine with the screen still wet. If its all a gimmick just pour water over other phones that arent listed as water resistance and see if they have the same result. I know I dont wanna find out the hard way with my DX1 and Droid 1. Since my DX1 is all but trash I might try that. Has a big crack in the corner of the screen and missing the material that covers the mouth piece on the front of the phone. That might not be a fair test...lol

    If Moto ever advertised it as water proof and indestructible...that would be another story. They never said the glass wont break or the phone wont crack. And the only post in here that mentioned it being durable said its pretty damn strong and you saying its not any stronger than other phones on the market. No one in here actually said its tougher than other phones...Moto also has the Defy thats actually listed as water proof to a certain feet. **I think Moto actually got called out on that one, its now listed as water resistant, or it never was listed as water proof** (probably about the depth and being called water proof, dont really know) A few tests that held up for the Defy:





    Heres an EVO under water for comparison.



    And another RAZR clip:



    Still...Moto only advertised the RAZR was water resistant. And they advertised Gorilla Glass as "defends the screen against scrapes and scratches." Not scratch, crack proof, unbreakable. Some ppl actually thought the entire back of the phone was Kevlar...its only the part with the design.

    Once again, we have to be careful with anecdotal evidence. Obviously there are exceptions to rules and with phones there are dozens of variables in how one is dropped, lands, etc. So all companies can do is put as many "anti-break" features as possible into a phone to help sturdy it and I believe that the RAZR has done an above average job on that. Especially for a phone that should be delicate with how thin it is.

    Even if we were to agree that it handles drops as good as "any other phone" then wouldn't the water-resistant measures alone put it above the "average durability" category?
