We’re massive fans of Motorola’s Razr i smartphone, which combines fantastic media power and great battery life to make an all-round winning package. So we were giddy with joy to play with the new Motorola Razr HD, which is due to hit the UK very soon.
At first glance the Razr HD is a very similar, slightly thicker phone to the Razr i (although at 8.4mm it’s still impressively skinny for a 4.7-inch mobile). The usual uber-tough Kevlar coating is in place, so you can smash this phone about the place and drop it as much as you like, and it should still work fine.
Like its older brother, the Razr HD boasts an incredibly vibrant and pleasingly sharp 720p screen – this time a larger 4.7 inches - which makes it well suited to playing movies, browsing the web and killing time with some games.
Inside, the Intel processor of the Razr i has been replaced with a 1.5GHz dual-core chip, which seemed to handle Android 4.1 in a smooth and satisfying fashion. There’s built-in NFC and also 4G LTE support, so it’s ready to jump on the speedy new network here in the UK.
We’re excited to see if the Motorola Razr HD can match the Razr i’s fantastic battery life, so check back soon for our full review.
