    I'm getting rid of my Blackberry and am interested in the RAZR, Galaxy Nexus, and maybe the 4S. My son has the GNex and it's very impressive, but the voice quality was a step down from Blackberry. It didn't sound on the listening end as good as my BB, and it didn't transmit as clean a voice signal to the recipient as my BB does. How's the sound quality on the RAZR compare to other phones?

    I use the phone for work and a quality voice call is important and a decent speakerphone is useful too. Next most important is full sync with Exchange server and a good searchable e-mail. I probably will not root the phone, so solutions that make the sound better but involve rooting aren't a good option.

    I've had a few Motorola phones and others as well. Motorola has very good call quality.

    Motorola is well known for its voice quality.

    Sound is good on headset but I'm not impressed with speaker. With all the rules in effect now on phone usage it doesn't matter much since I use Bluetooth most off the time anyway.

    I have found the sound quality when using hands free ear buds + mic (wired) and holding the phone to my ear have really good call quality. Even better than my Droid X.

    Thanks for the replies. Anyone compared it side by side with the Nexus?

    The other day someone was using my RAZR and I thought it was on speaker phone....it wasnt...lol. The speaker and volume in calls is loud, mine is anyway. Both probably louder than my Droid X1.

    Odd. I find the speaker quite impressive.

    Razr sound quality

    There is a very audible static noise in the background when using the razr at full volume. I did not detect the same static when I tested the nexus at full volume. I took the razr back three times because of the static and each time the replaced it with another razr. Finally I got a sales person who figured out the static was from having the phone on full volume. Unfortunately he figured it out too late to exchange it for a nexus. Shouldn't be a problem, unless you are like me and work in a noisy environment that requires that you keep your phone at full volume. The static isn't there on a headset, or speaker phone

    I know what you mean... I bought a nexus and returned it same day because of how horrible the voice quality was.

    I have the Razr and it is pretty solid. I would still like quality to be higher but it is as high as any phone I have ever had.... damn carriers haven't really put the effort into excellent voice for a long time.

    Definitely go with Motorola, or possibly HTC. I've heard good stuff about their phones. Stay away (far away) from samsung if voice quality is a large concern.
