    Here's another Video where the camera just looks like it has the same Auto Focus Issue as the Bionic! Dammm you moto if you ship a device out with the same Bug!!!

    FYI...at 2:22 he brings up the camera, notice that is doesn't focus and bring up the green box!

    It's a shame moto doesn't seem to fix the bugs their phones have and rather just try and pump out a lot of phones. This was looking good for my next phone. Not so much now.

    Bro I'm pissed!!! This thing is an extremely nice looking device, I just dont get it, you put all that hard work into the craftsmanship and build quality of the device, to only ship it with a Camera that is extremely Suspect! It's most likely the same issue as the Bionics Auto Focus...BIG Thumbs down to moto if this is present on the shipped devices.

    The .893 build leaked for Bionic fixes camera shutter lag pretty well. Interestingly the Atrix camera app never suffered from that issue and I use it on my D3 with excellent results. Just an FYI...

    Best looking and best built Android phone to date. NOTHING can compare or come close. No competition even from their other devices. The OG Droid, Droid X and X2 are like a Bradley Fighting Vehicle the RAZR is like the M1 Abrams.

    Gnex looks like a Smart car next to it :)

    ...the RAZR is just bad arse.

    Their new slogan is "Strong enough for a woman, but made for a man"

    i too like the looks of the RAZR but i need to know three things of which i'm sure will be told within a couple of weeks after availability.

    1. Whats the 411 on world phone? Is it or is it not?
    2. What kind of DEV support will this phone get? If its like the DX2 or Bionic i'm staying far far away from it. Which is a shame.
    3. How is that CAMERA!...i should not have to download any freakin apps in order to make the camera experience bearable. Especially when moto has known for a long time that their camera tech sux. My old BB9650 takes more consistently good photos.

    And seriously.....Why Did VERIZON have to go and Plaster they're name right on the front like that? Lol...it almost goes right into the home button. Moronic if you ask me! They could have just put it on the back...As if nobody will know that its a vzw phone. Uhhh Hello...DROIDDDDDDDDDDD DOES commercials every 5 min during a Football Game.

    I must be in the minority here, but I really don't like the look of the Razr.......I think I've mentioned it before, but I hate those freakin' corners......and that hump, I've had enough of that from my X :p

    Moto really needs to get on it quickly and fix the camera bugs, their cameras have always been quite slow and don't take great quality pics.

    And stop encrypting your bootloaders Moto!!!

    My thoughts exactly. Here is my post about that exact issue.

    I like everything about the Moto Razr except the branding on the front of the phone. What makes the IPhone and Samsung Nuxus look so sleek is they keep all branding on the back of the phone. I did a mock up in Photoshop to show what the Moto Razr would look like without the Motorola and Verizon branding on the front of the phone. It makes the Razr look so much sleeker and your eyes are not drawn away from the screen by the branding glaring at you. The designers of the Razr should have the Motorola and Verizon branding on the back of the phone only, it would have been a 100% nicer/sleeker looking phone.

    I am the same way. I don't like the back hump moto puts on their devices. I would rather the phone be a mm thicker throughout than have that ugly hump up top. Too square for me. Only thing that would sway me to this over the nexus is if this has amazing( and I mean amazing) battery life, and the nexus is very overpriced since I will be buying full retail.

    From the looks of it...The Euro version is Carrier Brand Free! Typical Vzw Ego at it again. I'm actually surprised it's on the front if this phone...just looks so out of place.

    I don't mind using a 3rd party camera app - I love the HDR filters on Camera360. I am not crazy about the moto and verizon branding on front, but in now way is it a huge deal for me. I am very impressed with the brightness of the display. The speaker sounds nice and loud (important to me). I usually freeze most bloat, but it looks like moto has integrated some nice usuable things into this phone I will actually apply on a daily basis. Bottom line, right now the RAZR is my clear favorite over the GNEX. That coud change but I doubt it. Thanks for the vid BTW.

    Your Welcome....I agree on the point about all the good stuff Moto has integrated on the phone, some very usable stuff I must say.

    I only treat my phone camera as an emergency thing. With my current phone that I have been using for a year now I have taken 3 photos so far and do need or want it to replace my DSLR with a lens that is worth as much as the whole phone.
