Motorola and Verizon Announce The Droid RAZR– The Most Amazing Droid Yet

motorola droid razr 1

As we all expected, Verizon and Motorola today officially announced the Droid RAZR and as expected it’s insane. If you have an upgrade anytime soon and were thinking about getting the Droid Bionic or are looking for a crazy super powerful phone, you should definitely check this out (and if you bought a Droid Bionic recently, you may want to talk to Verizon about upgrading to this– it’s that insane!).

So what are you waiting for? Read on!

Without a doubt this is the most amazing and powerful Droid Verizon’s released yet. Just look at these specs:

droid razr screen

  • 4.3 inch Gorilla Glass qHD Super AMOLED Screen– Basically, not only will everything you do look amazing on here but the Gorilla Glass coating also makes the screen scratch-proof!
droid razr thin
  • Incredibly thin, waterproof design— There’s a reason why it’s called the Droid RAZR. Not only is this one of the thinnest phones we’ve ever seen (it’s just 7.1mm thick— thinner than the iPhone 4S and pencil-thin Samsung Galaxy S II!), but it’s also made of Kelvar, or the same material used to make bulletproof vests. And while it’s not bulletproof, it is waterproof and together with that scratch-proof screen you shouldn’t have to worry about dropping this or getting it wet.
  • 1.2 GHZ processor with 1 GB of RAM— So everything from opening apps to gaming to multitasking runs fast and without any freezes or lags.
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread— Though we do expect it to be updated to the latest version of Android, version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which will be revealed later tonight.
  • 8 megapixel back camera with a second front camera for HD video chat
  • 32 GB of included storage— So you can start filling this up with all your music and videos right out of the box (16 GB are built-in with another 16 GB on the included microSD card slot).
  • Support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network— It wouldn’t be a Verizon superphone without it.
droid razr smart actions
Motorola has also added in a Smart Actions app to help you get the best possible battery life out of your phone (something that’s really been a problem with some of Verizon’s earlier 4G LTE phones). With Smart Actions you can create “rules” for your Droid RAZR, such as automatically setting the phone to vibrate during school hours or lowering the brightness and slowing the processor down when you’re at a specific battery level (such as when you only have 20% or 30% left). Hey, when it comes to getting better battery life we’ll take whatever help we can get.
Unfortunately Verizon and Motorola haven’t said much yet about a release date for this beast, just saying that it will be $300 with a new 2 year contract and data plan when it comes in “early November” (though you can pre-order it starting October 27th).
So Verizon users, sold on the Droid RAZR or are you (like us) waiting to see what Google and Samsung have planned for a few hours from now? Let us know in the comments.
