I concur, a lot of people had problems with it, it's basically for show, extremely fragile. I almost got it for my Verizon New Every Two, but then I decided to get the Samsung A930, and I'm so glad that I got it.

RAZR is also not as feature-rich has other phones, and durability? pffft, one of the worst.

I've heard the interface is pretty slow. I'd avoid it. I have not had good luck with Motorola phones.

The main thing that catches people is how thin it is and the cool blue lighting it has. However, it is VERY feature-lacking. My parents T Mobile crappy Motorolla phone has all the features that the Razer has.

What phone would you recommend?

What's your budget, what's your carrier and what features would you like to have?

Generally, Samsung and LG make very solid phones.

Depending on what you want to do with your phone, start looking through the various phone forums and sites. Don't rush your purchase.

I don't recommend the Razr. I think the hinge durability is limited (as others have mentioned) although it has a nice sized display. And, while it's up to you, I wouldn't get any phone that doesn't have a memory card slot to expand the memory.

However, many Motorola phones can be user-modified much like modifying the BIOS of a computer. You can add features that aren't present, or enhance those that already exist.

My latest phone is a Moto V360, and except for an EXTREMELY unreliable Bluetooth signal (which I don't use) it's a good phone, can use a memory card up to 1GB, plays MP3 playlists, etc.

The one thing I don't like about ANY phones I've seen, is they all display the incoming call phone number in TEENY TINY fonts.

Some good sites are:

Ever consider one of these?

The offer all the speed you need, absolutely error free, durable enough to throw out of a window, doesn't introduce any EMI (Electro-Magnetic Interference) and it works without power. ;)

The standard Razr V3 is a piece of crap.

However, I have a V3x, and its awesome, have no complaints about it at all, and very feature rich.

Thats true dublin,
the V3x is much better then the standard V3.

because that was a little crappy on the original V3.

The menu's on my V3x are instantaneous. No probs there.

Slowest thing is opening the mp3 player, as it loads the songs etc from the memory card, and thats the fault of the card, not the phone.

i had the razr, its really not that bad, yes its a little slow, but the pics and vids were great and i've dropped it several times with no damage and the person using it now has no hinge damage. The only reason I got rid of it was because a got a slvr for free.

I have the Razor, is not as impress as it looks. My phone went dead the first week I bought it; the screen just went blank. I had to take it back to the store and got a replacement. The phone comes with absolutely no features, unlike Sony and Samsung, Motorola phones comes with no games, wallpapers, and sound effects are very limited. Also if you want to connect your phone your PC to upload photos I believe you have to purchase an extra kit that does this. Even thought you can just connect a USB cable to the phone and the pc, Motorola does not provide you the drivers for the phone.

i have a samsung SGH335 (i believe thats the name of it) and i'm very pleased with it. usually i change phones every year when i renew my plan but i've stuck with this one for a couple now. its very sturdy and designed well. i've never been a fan of motorola phones, just because of how the back button is on the same side as the send button...but thats just personal preference.

What's your wireless provider? Cingular and T-Mobile always have the latest phones. Verizon is a bit slow at getting new phones, but they have some cool phones. For Verizon, the best phone by far is the Motorola E815, me and my dad just got one for my mom, its freaking awsome. Its even got a miniSD slot. And it doesn't use the crappy Verizon OS (one of the only if not the only phone for verizon that doesn't use Verizon's crappy phone OS). If your not using Verizon, good for you, just pick out any phone you like, don't follow the crowd. The Razor is the iPod of the Cell Phone industry, that is overrated because it has a recognizable style and name. I have to admit when the original Moto Razor V3 came out for Cingular probally 2 or 3 years ago, I was pretty impressed, now the phone has became the phone for crowd followers. Razor + iPod = 16 year old materialistic girl (I hate girls like that).

i've been using nokia 6600... although its a lil bulky, i;ve had it for almost 3,5 years now and there is no problem with it... the best thing about it is there is an expansion slot for memory... no lags while taking pics/videos and there are a lot of freeware available for the Symbian OS.. its fun!
