The Motorola RAZR brand has been around since smartphones were reserved for business executives on high salaries and clamshell phones were the norm. Indeed, back then, mobile photography was only just making a start with sub megapixel cameras. Now, however, the Motorola RAZR HD is the 2012 high-end phone, considered by many a mid-range now (2013). This is the Motorola RAZR HD Review.
Motorola RAZR HD Review:
After the Moto G, which I reviewed last month, the Motorola RAZR HD is a return to Motorola’s 2012 flagship series. RAZR HD sports a 1.5 GHz Dual-Core processor, a 4.7 inch Super AMOLED display, with an 8MP rear camera and a 1.2MP forward facing camera running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
Despite the less than stellar specs (especially compared to the Moto G), the Motorola RAZR HD is a very nice, usable phone. The outside styling is very smart, with an anti slip, anti splash Kevlar-made texture on the back, that has a matt chevron design with a metal band round the side, which gives it a nice look.

The smooth black screen has no physical buttons, opting rather for the stock software buttons of the OS. The only physical buttons on the phone are the power button and the volume rocker found on the right hand side of the phone. The left side holds the Micro USB charging port as well as a Micro HDMI port, allowing you to connect your phone to a TV to watch videos (although you have to purchase an HDMI adaptor or cable as it’s not included in the box).
