Motorola RAZR i review


The Motorola RAZR i is arguably the first mainstream Android handset to launch with an Intel chipset inside.

Battery performance, compact, solid build, plenty of power, some nice tweaks to UI

The move to Intel doesn't bring with it a swathe of immediate advantages. But this phone is still worthy of consideration in the mid-range, bringing impressive performance and endurance, with accepted limitations.
