I was given Motorola Razr by Etisalat Sri Lanka for about a week for the purpose of reviewing it. As usual the video review is short and I didn’t get to speak much really what I felt it about. Here I’m sharing my personal views on the device. Be warned, this is not a professional review. Please google for more professional reviews. This is just going to be an amateur review anyway.

Believe me or not, this device is a powerhouse. I’ve played many games (both paid and free) on this device downloaded from Play Store and they all worked without any issues. It was a smooth and sleek experience. Even applications such as Instragram was such a pleasant experience.
Unlike most of the Android devices, you won’t be able to remove the battery as it is fixed with the phone (More like iPhone). But throughout the one week, it never got stuck so I don’t think there will be a need to remove the battery to hard reset the phone.
It also incorporates an awesome AMOLED display which means bright colourful display even under bright sunlight you would be able to see the screen.
Camera that comes with the device is really awesome. It has 8MP camera and you can shoot HD video with 1080p resolution. What else you want??
The stock camera application is cool and has so many controls and options but when the photo is taken it fails to show proper preview. bit of a bizzerk was there. It didn’t really convince me. Other than that I like the camera of the device.
As I said earlier photo editing, sharing applications are working so smooth on it and it gives us a pleasant experience.
When I got the device from Etisalat, I brought it home and was trying to place my SIM into it. It really didn’t fix in the SIM tray. After a simple Google search I realized, it supports Micro SIM. You may have heard of Micro SIM already as it is very popular among Apple devices such as iPhone and iPad. As far as I know this is the first Android device to use it, and I’m not very happy about it.
If you are someone who gonna switch between devices then Micro SIM can be a pain. I know you can use SIM tray and all but still it just makes the experience worse.
This device provides you pleasant multimedia experience. I was listening to some songs and it was just awesome. True, it’s not as good as you listen on iPod but still it’s just awesome.
Built in YouTube application enables you to stream YouTube videos instantly without any hassle. All in all it gives a pleasant experience for music / video fanatics
Local Language Support
This is one of the devices which doesn’t support both Tamil and Sinhala. My mid-range Android phone Samsung Ace, do supports Tamil. So bad they don’t bother much about supporting local languages.
This sums up my humble review. Those who are willing to buy the device can buy it from Etisalat or from the shop near you.
