Motorola Razr2 V9m (Verizon Wireless)

Phones
[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Kent German, senior editor here at CNET dot com. Today we're going to take a first look at the Motorola Razor 2V9N. This is a Verizon Wireless version. We've already looked at the Sprint version and the V9 for AT and T. But this is the Verizon version, comes in a brown color which is a little different than the gray from Sprint and the maroon in the AT and T phone. Like this color there, it's a little bit different, a little bit striking, a little, I like it much better than the gray on the Sprint definitely. Same basic design overall. You have the same little bit slimmer form factor. Has the smaller internal antenna, so they used to call that the Verizon double chin, shaved down just a little bit. A little more of a prominent hinge. Overall the phone is a little heavier than the original Razor actually which gives it a little bit of a weightier, nicer feel on the hand. It makes it feel a little more sturdy. Here on the outside you can see we do have the very nice external display which is common on all the V9s. Have the very bright, colorful, also very large as good as a internal display on many other phones. Also has the on screen buttons as well. They have one for the camera, the music player and the voice dialing. Sprint version we liked a little better just because it had the key for activating the streaming video. Didn't find this key right here for voice mail, really useful because you can also activate voice dialing here on the side. So found this key a little redundant. Like on the other versions of the phone, these buttons also give a little bit of a tactical feedback when pressed inside. Also have very similar to the Sprint phone and the AT and T phone, same internal display. 65000 colors, which is true on the CMA version of the phone. The GSM versions have 260000 displays which I, you know like to see on these more media rich, multimedia phones. 65 just isn't the best resolution. Moving down to the keypad buttons, these are the same. Circular toggle and okay button in the center. Couple of soft keys, clear button, don't have a dedicated speaker phone key but we do have a shutter for the camera. And a short cut for the camcorder. Talk and end power keys as well. And the keypad buttons. They're pretty flat with the surface of the phone. Gives some definition on lines and between individual rows and the numbers. Numbers are kind of large and the keys are backlit as well. So it's pretty easy to use, even those they are a tad bit slick. I do have a micro T slot, it's behind the battery cover. I don't have to remove the battery as well, just the cover. And you have a volume rocker here on this side. You have a Motorola smart key. One thing we didn't like about the Verizon phone and this is true with a lot of Verizon phones is it does use Verizon standardized [unclear] interface. It's been in use for a couple of years now. Really, really think it's just a little too text heavy. It doesn't lend itself to the flashy multimedia feature, really hard to find things. Also the design is just really boring. So not a fan of that by any means. Although very stylish phone, pretty similar features as far as the other versions of the phone, but the best thing is as far as Verizon phones go, spectacular voice quality. Really liked it a lot. I'm Kent German and this is the Motorola Razor 2V9N for Verizon Wireless. ^M00:02:48 [ Music ]
