Motorola KRZR K1


It's upto you how you pronounce it—'crazer', 'K-RAZR' or 'kerzer'—but Motorola's KRZR K1 doesn't jump out at you like the RAZR did once upon a time. Perhaps it's because slim and shiny phones are no longer a novelty. Or perhaps it's because the KRZR is...

I like the Motorola KRZR K1. Yeah, it isn’t a whole lot different from the RAZR, but this is where everyone goes wrong. It isn’t supposed to be. It isn’t really an upgrade to the RAZR—it’s a different series of phones, which is why it isn't called a...

Motorola KRZR K1m Cell Phone


The RAZR is the runway models of cell phones: anorexic but fashionable. The new KRZR K1 is the same runway model, but with more memory, a shorter chassis, and a

Touch-sensitive music controls will have you yelping “Cool!” aloud. Easy to navigate media player. Smaller folded size makes awkward bulge in pants slightly less awkward. Battery life, memory slot, camera resolution, screen brightness all improved from...

Touch-sensitive music controls way are too sensitive. Phone's design is neither original nor innovative. No flash for camera. Awkward to flip open with one hand

Motorola Krzr K1m (Sprint)


The Motorola Krzr K1m for Sprint has an attractive, trendy design with an admirable feature set including 3G EV-DO support, Bluetooth, and a megapixel camera. It makes good calls too.

The Motorola Krzr K1m for Sprint suffers from unimpressive music quality and sluggish performance. Also, it offers a lower-resolution camera than on the GSM Krzr K1, and the MicroSD card slot is inconveniently located.

Sprint's pretty Motorola Krzr K1m is similar to its Verizon counterpart. Though its EV-DO offerings are slightly better, its performance was a tad diminished.

Motorola MOTOKRZR K1m


Buy the MOTOKRZR K1m for its looks and voice quality, not its multimedia chops.

Bigger display than Pearl • Excellent GPS system • Long battery life • Good data performance • Built-in media player

Keyboard a bit cramped • No camera• No stereo Bluetooth support

Motorola Krzr K1m (white, Verizon Wireless)


Just when you thought Motorola couldn't ride the wave from its popular Razr any longer, the once-staid, now-cool company rolls out its line of Krzr handsets. Styled similar to the Razr but with a few important improvements, the Motorola Krzr K1m casts...

The Motorola Krzr K1m is downright sexy and offers Bluetooth, EV-DO support, and good call quality.

The Motorola Krzr K1m suffers from metallic music quality, poor streaming videos, and sluggish performance. Also, it offers a lower-resolution camera than on the GSM Krzr K1.

Though it's oh-so pretty, the Motorola Krzr K1m doesn't offer any new features. Plus, multimedia performance wasn't reliable.

Motorola KRZR K1 review: It's all about the looks


Motorola has launched a new leader. The popular RAZR is being substituted by the new KRZR, whose glossy materials look luxurious. On the other hand, the innovations made since the forerunner are very few. Is this wrong? Not at all, provided all you...

Expert review by:

Motorola Krzr K1 (AT&T)


The Motorola Krzr K1 offers good call quality and comes with Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera, and a speakerphone.

The Motorola Krzr K1 lacks 3G support and external music controls.

Though the GSM Motorola Krzr K1 has a more attractive color scheme than the CDMA Krzr K1m, some feature differences make it mostly comparable with its sibling.

Motorola KRZR K1m goes live on Sprint


Sprint still hasn't quite learned the fine art of not getting shown up by CDMA rival Verizon for prompt releases of the hottest phones, partially on account of Verizon's tendency to lock up lucrative exclusivity agreements that last anywhere from a few...

Motorola K1m MOTOKRZR reviewed on Verizon


We figure peeps who've placed their orders through Verizon's site for Motorola's new gotta-have-it clamshell need a little reading material to pass the time while they wait for the good folks in the shipping industry to make their phones materialize --...

Motorola's MOTOKRZR K1 and K1M


We've only been hearing about (and seeing, and getting the launch of) the Canary for a couple months now, so it's about time Motorola officially launched the damned things. The KRZR, as we very well know, is the latest in Moto's 4 LTTR DVCE NAME LINE,...
