    Hi everyone. I just noticed that when I run my finger over the back of the phone it feels bumpy. Not like texturing of the kevlar, but more like I can feel whats inside. Some spots are bumpy! Is this normal?? Thanks.

    There is a clear film, very thin, that is supposed to be removed after unboxing. Is it still there? It's so thin and clear that *I* didn't know it was there until after I'd had my phone for a while. (In my defense, one of the first things I did was put a cover on it, so I didn't really see the back much :) ).

    Hi. Thanks for the response. There is no film. Its not the surface that I am feeling, its almost like underneath the visible kevlar backing. If you put a little bit of pressure as you run your finger over the kevlar, I can feel bumps... lines..

    yours isn't like that?

    Lol -I don't know. Mine has a case on it that is a PITA to get off, so I'm not going to try it. :)
    I do know that the kevlar back is VERY thin, so it wouldn't really surprise me to find out that you can feel the guts of the phone through it (the battery actually, I suspect).

    Interesting. Thanks. I basically can feel a horizontal line that runs from side to side about a half inch above the Motorola logo.

    Mine is smooth, no bumps.

    Yes its normal. Mine feels smooth but when i apply pressure and run my finger across the back I can feel the line. Normal, no worries.

    Interesting, even with pressure applied, I still don't feel anything. Perfectly smooth.

    I would describe it as "wavy" more so than bumpy, but I think I see what you're saying. Mine is that way.

    The Kevlar is like a paper thin sheet of plastic *glued* to the back of the phone. That thin film of Kevlar is not the indestructible shield that the advertising hype implies.

    On my RAZR MAXX the Kevlar is only glued around the edges and there is a big air bubble under most of the center of the Kevlar.

    Nice. Thank you both for the confirmation. I noticed on the regular Razr that the line isn't there. Had me kind of wondering. Appreciate it.

    I have just the Razr. Mine has no lines, no air bubbles, and it's not wavy. Smooth as can be.

    The internet doesn't get me offended. Paranoid is thinking I didn't lose my garage. This is me being curious cause I compared it to my regular Razr and wanted to know if it something that was out of the ordinary. But thanks for playing. Happy new year to you.

    I noticed the same about mine. The back feels kind of "wavy" in places.
