Motorola Droid Razr HD: Assessing the latest from Motorola

Features and Design of Motorola Droid Razr HD:

The Motorola Droid Razr HD runs on Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but could be upgradable to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean eventually. The operating system runs smoothly and is very intuitive.

One nice improvement from previous operating systems is its ability to allow the user to access apps straight from the lock screen. Motorola’s user interface enhances the operating system and phone. The user can have up to seven home screens for organizing apps, downloads, and widgets. The Qualcomm 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor gives the Razr HD blazing fast performance and excellent responsiveness.

The call quality is excellent and the non-removable battery claims seven hours of continuous YouTube viewing and over nine hours of continuous talk time. The dimensions of the Motorola Droid Razr HD are 5.2 inches tall, 2.7 inches wide, and 0.33 inches thick. This gives it a very slim profile and makes it easier for the user to slide it into their pocket or purse.

The Razr HD weighs 5.1 ounces, just slightly heavier than the last Droid Razr. The only physical buttons on the Razr HD are a power button and volume rocker. It does have a micro HDMI and micro-USB port along with a microSD card slot.

The size of the Droid Razr HD allows for a large 4.7 inch AMOLED screen with a pixel resolution of 1280x720 pixels. The screen has wonderful colors, outstanding clarity, and wide viewing angles. The large screen gives the user a good size virtual keyboard with well spaced and responsive keys.

Also available for typing is the Swype Keyboard, which allows the user to type without having to remove their finger when moving from one key to another. Another nice feature the Droid Razr HD has is letting the user organize apps into folders on the main screens. This feature comes in handy for the user since, with this phone, they have access to more than 500,000 apps.

The Droid Razr HD has an 8MP camera with features like panorama, multishot, timer, and lots of settings and shooting modes. The camera loads extremely quickly and snaps pictures even quicker.
Google has preloaded the Droid Razr HD with lots of their apps like Gmail, YouTube, Google+, Maps and Navigation, and a store for downloading media like movies, music, and books.

Verizon has also loaded the phone with their apps like Navigator, Tones, and Video. Other apps preloaded onto the Droid Razr HD include Facebook, Quick office, Kindle, and more.

The Droid Razr HD runs on the most recent version of Google’s Android operating system, Motorola’s user interface, and has a fast processor. It also supports 4G speeds, has large display with great clarity, and its slim design allows it to slide easily into pockets.

The Droid Razr HD’s camera quality is subpar, has a non-removable battery, and it comes with a lot of unnecessary apps that cannot be deleted.
