A week after release we'll get a better idea of just how good, or just how bad the battery is...

If it is bad....boy oh boy is there gonna be trouble in paradise. If that's the case people will 100% opt for the better displayed phone in the Rezound because of the use of a removable battery...and the GNex will pick up alot of hype and steam again.

If within a week the razr battery doesn't last at least 9 hours (currently getting on the bionic) its going back and i'm getting the nexus. Done deal.

In the device I tested at my local Verizon the RAZR had NO headphone whine whatsoever. All that was audible was some hiss and a very faint crackling noise similar to a needle on a record. If the Bionic is a 10 in audible noise, the Razr would be about a 2 or 3.

BTW the jack was also very solid unlike that of the OG Droid. I tried yanking the input around a little to see if I was able to get that dreaded crackling like on the OGD but the Razr was solid.

Yep, they need to use the phone to format to Fat32. 64gb sdxc has been reported to work in devices even from last year.

Another excellent, detailed, in-depth review. Shame it couldn't be more positive.

Gadgetsteria - Review: Motorola Droid RAZR

I'm disappointed the phone is getting such mixed reviews. I was hoping this would be my next phone, now i'm not so sure and i'm not even interested in the Galaxy Nexus! Not sure what to do now.

IMO, the Rezound seems the best bet. I posted a mini review in Rezound forum, comparing the Razr.

Indeed it doesn't comment on lots of things. I didn't want to make commentary on things that I really couldn't legitimately discuss based on my short experience of only 2&1/2 days with the phone. Would have been a farce to venture an opinion on battery life at that stage for example (not that that stops a lot of other sites). The blog will have a gratuitously long and detailed review based on a longer experience with the handset that leaves no stone unturned.

Interesting comparison review of Razr vs Rezound. Photo quality of Rezound seems a little better due to more vivid colors. But I like higher contrast, more colorful screen of Razr. HTC seems to have addressed LTE radio battery problem as Rezound does close to Razr in battery, but I don't think they tested smart action battery saver in Razr. But in Rezound, you have option of putting 2700mAh extended battery while you can't do that in razr. Overall it's tie though I prefer Razr over Rezound.

Had my Canadian Razr for over a week now, get a couple days out of it before it needs a charge...moderate use, mostly me just playing around with it...it seems to live longer each charge..not over my 30 min yet so I have a couple days to return...like that is going to happen. This thing is really a great phone for me...2 days for a charge is just fine, no heat build-up, calls are crystal clear. and hey, I just like looking at it.

I can't imagine anything that I would need a little handheld piece of tech. to do that this can't do....And the last thing I would ever do (even if something drastic happens before my 14 days is up) is trade it for anything Samsung (never again). It would be IPhone before samcensored, and that is not going to happen.

TechRadar review now up!

Motorola Razr review | from TechRadar's expert reviews of Mobile phones

It's only 8 pages long when most handset reviews are 11/12 pages long so feel there may be more to come later on.

Yea we all know benchmarks arent the end all be all...but....

The RAZR always go thru the I/O tests faster than other phones its tested against....even the GS2. Even when its started after another phone.
What does it mean? I have no idea...lol. Just something I noticed...

The itneresting thing is that he seemed to prefer the phone that lost (or at least spent more time using it).

iPhone aside, seems the Razr is one of, if not the highest rated Android device (from an aggregate).

Anandtech's review is interesting. I rooted and installed SetCPU to under clock to 1Ghz to see something. I might again and really monitor battery life.

Odd about the speaker phone. My RAZR sounds louder than my DX1. Maybe I had a bad speaker on my DX1...lol.

I played with four razr yesterday (about 5-10 minutes each) was making test calls and such and comparing to the rezound in my never ending undecisive search for a phone - anyways two of the razr were rather soft on max volume (one was white one was black) the other two were much louder - weird thing is that the loud ones were at a different store so i oculdn't compare them side by side - but the first two gave me the impression that the speaker was not going to be useful for anything and the other two made it easy to listen to videos (via the speaker) - so there seems to be some variance here.

On such tiny little sound emitting devices, even the slightest variance in the manufacturing process can produce noticeable results in a device's ability to produce sound when it finally finds itself in the hands of the end user.
