Motorola razr2 v8 reviews

Design: Larger size, but with good functionality

Despite the dimensions, the Motorola Razr2 V8 is still too large for its intended simple, sleek design. The 4.13 oz weight is not exceptionally heavy, nor is the 4.06″ x 2.09″ x 0.47″ dimensions particularly large. However, the size is more superfluous for a clamshell style phone than beneficial. When this Motorola phone is opened, I almost feel like I am holding a small sword, instead of a piece of modern technology. On the plus side, the Razr2’s size does make the button size adequate and the 240 x 320 resolution screen very satisfactory.

Features: Everything you need, with great storage space

The Razr2 V8 has all the features that a modern cell phone should, including a few of those impressive extras. For instance, this phone has a 2 megapixel camera and a two hour video capture. I should also mention the optimal 2GB built-in memory that allows you to actually use the media features. In addition, the Razr2’s media player supports not only the typical MP3 and WMA formats, but also AAC for all you Apple fans.

Performance: Duller than G3, but amplified with Linux

The Razr2 V8 still runs on GSM (850/900/1800/1900), unlike its Motorola cousin the V9, which sports G3 technology. This means that you lose some of the phone call sharpness that you would experience with newer devices. The battery life of the Razr2 V8 clocks extends for eight hours of talk time and almost 12 days of standby time. However, Motorola is oddly silent regarding its battery time when playing music. This is also a phone that carries Linux technology, which should please Linux’s die-hard fan base.

    The Motorola DROID continues to present new possibilities everyday. We’ve had it for about 10 months and I have had a Blackberry attached to my system since September 1998. Getting connected is usually a vital part of my existence so I am often reachable by family members and co-workers. I’m a bit addicted on the Marketplace for DROID Applications. When the device had limitless memory I would check the capacity. I think this OS may be the way in the long term and intend to grow with all of you to know it as a result of and by way of. Thanks for your write-up.

    While I love a physical keyboard, after dealing with the Samsung Captivate for approximately quarter-hour, it’s laborious to move back. At the moment I am debating whether or not to go to Verizon for the Droid X, pass to Dash for the EVO, or stay with AT&T for the Captivate…choices, decisions.
