Motorola Droid Razr

Culture
-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the Motorola Droid Razr. It's back. It is apparently the thinnest smartphone in the world. You can see here. It is very skinny. It's also very lightweight. Despite its very skinny and lightweight profile, it is quite large. Its large frame and slightly squared edges might make it feel a little bit awkward in the hand. On the whole, however, the phone has a very impressive industrial design. It's made out of a diamond cut aluminum frame as well as sculpted Corning's Gorilla glass. Instead of a regular back cover, Motorola has coated the back of the Droid Razr with Kevlar. The Kevlar here has a nice soft texture pattern to it. The phone is slightly heavy due to the slight bump at the top. Perhaps, the most attractive thing about the Droid Razr is its stunning 4.3-inch super AMOLED advance display. It is simply gorgeous. The Droid Razr shoots Android 2.3.5 gingerbread and uses the Motoblur user interface. On the lock screen here, you can immediately go to the camera via slight sweep of the finger. You can also have up to 5 customizable home screens. Aside from its stunning good looks, the Droid Razr is also very powerful phone. It has a 1.2 gigahertz dual core Qualcomm processor that results in very snappy performance when navigating the phone. The Droid Razr is also one of the few Verizon phones that shoots with 4G LTE that results a blazing fast internet speeds. You were able to get around 31 megabytes per second down. Motorola claims, the Droid Razr is also one of the few phones to be able to stream Netflix videos in HD quality. It also comes with a variety of different Apps aside from the standard Google ones. They include MotoCast that lets you stream media from you home computer as well as webtop functionality that turns the phone into portable PC. It is compatible with an array of webtop accessories with the Lapdock 100 that turns the phone into a little mini netbook. The Webtop platform allows you access to a full Firefox browser as well as a variety of office tools. A very intriguing app that comes with the Droid Razr is the Smart Actions app that let's you automate test and functions. You set a series of rules and you can arrange it so that phone automatically turns off Bluetooth and GPS when you connect to your home Wi-Fi network for example. You can also set it so that the brightness automatically goes to 0% if you have less than 20% battery life. The smart action app is not all about saving battery life. You can also set it so the ringer automatically turns when you are at the office and so forth. The Droid Razr has a slew of different multimedia features that include the 8-megapixel camera. They can take a variety of different shots like panorama mode and so forth. It also has 1080p HD video with a video stabilization feature. The Motorola Droid Razr is overall a very impressive device. It combines sleek and slim industrial design with powerful Droid features. However, you will have to pay for it around $300 with a new 2-year service agreement with Verizon wireless. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the first look at the Motorola Droid Razr.
