Motorola MotoRAZR2 V8 Luxury Edition
MotoRAZR series phones are most popular phones from Motorola and they got excellent response from customers. The main feature of the phones is its stylish design and modern look so they got good popularity and better response from all over world.
Design and look
Here is again luxury model from Motorola with superb metal finish and slim body. I am going to discuss its good features with advantages and some disadvantages also.
First of all I want to measure its size and phone has been measured as 103 x 53 x 11.9 mm with total 117gm of weight. Superb finish with folding body and there is only 11.9mm thickness.. Phone has a two measure feature in its design with folding construction and slim design. Weight is slightly above than average but it is due to its metal finish.
Phone has two display screens with one primary and other outer display for quick information. The primary display is about 240 x 320 pixels, 2.2 inches diagonally. Screen resolution is average with TFT, 256K colors color screen. There is no measure issue with its resolution but it has two excellent displays for better convenience.
Phone has a good internal memory with 420 MB or 2 GB internal user memory but it doesn't have any card slot and that is very disappointing issue about this phone. There is no mean with its 400MB memory in this kind of middle higher range phone. 2 GB memory is something like relevant but except card slot there is no better satisfaction. Some phones from Nokia which is in middle range and they all have card slot or more than 2GB of internal memory and of-course they are more popular in peoples. This phone has a attractive look and superb design but there is lack of some features make is last choice for peoples.
Phone also failed to provide #G and WLAN connectivity solutions but it has middle range Bluetooth, USB and GPRS connectivity. As considering this phone it is better to keep such modern connectivity solutions like 3G and WLAN. And at a present almost every manufacture are trying to give better connectivity like 3G and WLAN to its phone. So this model dosent has this kind of connectivity and Motorola has given its entire consideration to its design without providing good features.
Music and camera
Phone has a good music player with MP3/AAC/AAC+ player but the bad point is that there is no FM radio in this phone. And camera is also average with only 2 megapixels but there is no flash and autofocus. Except all that is has good crystal clear sound and many pre- installed applications.
Battery back-up is average with Standard battery, Li-Ion 770 mAh and there is about 5 hours of talktime. time may decrease, depends on condition of using it.
Over all conclusion
Excellent designed phone with metal finish body and slim construction but there is many features are missing from this model.
When I saw it in the advert, amongst David Beckham and that big slithering snake, I didn't think much of it - until I saw it alive. I went out and bought one straight away, as I couldn't resist.
The packaging was what struck me in the right spot, it was beautiful crafted, with gold trims, exclusive looking and elegant, luxurious and even kingly, with one section opening up to show the phone, and the other the bluetooth headset, which was in gold. How can you resist such a thing!
The phone is large, flat yes, but large and wide. Which I didn't like. Other than that, I liked the contruction, the snake-skin back, the gold ornaments, oh so decorative and expensive looking. The features were identical to that of normal Motorola RAZR2, except the special theme given to luxury Edition, and the storage of 2GB. It is easy to use, nice keypads, and the music player is brilliant. What's even more, is the bluetooth mentioned, of gold, and it's very compact and stylish. It was truly delicious.
However, the lack of functions, bad 2MP camera and the wide-size did bore me and made me turn to other alternatives. Expensive too, all that 24K gold makes this phone twice or even thrice more expensive than normal RAZR2, which has all the same functions.
