Motorola India is planning to launch the world’s thinnest smartphone, Motorola Razr, next week. I was in awe of Motorola Razr right from its launch. Be its 7.1 mm thickness or the improved battery performance, Razr is the hottest smartphone out there. All it needs is a little garnishing with Ice Cream Sanwich, which I was told, will come in 2012.
Motorola Razr is priced at Rs. 32000 and I expect a price cut to bring it down to sub-30K to deal with the pscyhological pressure associated with gadgets priced over 30K. For a change Flipkart, Infibeam and Indiaplaza doesn’t yet have this phone.
Why am I so gung ho on Razr?
Let’s go through the list.
Droid Razr has a strong body powered by laser-cut Kevlan fiber and Gorilla glass on the exterior. From the inside, Razr runs on a dual core 1.2 GHz process, 1 GB RAM and sports a 8 MP rear camera.
Droid Razr has a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Advanced qHD screen. It can record 1080p videos can download HD movies from Netflix. Razr also has a splash technology which would keep the phone and the interiors safe from any water accidents.
You can ignore the Netflix part as it is not yet ready for India. The most impressive feature on Razr is its 1800 mAh battery which gives 12.5 hours of talk time on 3G, 8 hours of video playback and it weighs just 127 grams.
Motorola Razr’s incredible battery life sounds like an anti-thesis to iPhone 4S’s battery draining problems.
Motorola has made modest attempts at integrating software with hardware. It came with webtop, Smart Actions and Motocast – a way to access personal cloud.
Smart Actions is the really intelligent way of telling the phone to shut the hell up to save some battery.
Until I’m confronted with new reviews and new information, I will standby the Razr.
