Motorola RAZR2 V8


After the success of the RAZR series of phones, Motorola is back (and killing it too!) with the RAZR2 V8. Globally – and I'm quoting official company sources here – the phone has sold around 100 million RAZRs already.

One caveat: the battery life is something you may need to be wary of. Things like EGDE, music, and camera will drain the battery in a matter of hours. I got a talktime of just over an hour.

Motorola Razr2 review: Motorola Razr2


The Motorola Razr2 V9x retains the slim and eye-catching Razr2 design while adding new features to an already impressive assortment of goodies. It's a good performer, too.

The Motorola Razr2 V9x lacks a speakerphone shortcut and its memory card slot is located behind the battery cover. Also, watching videos on the external display is a tad cumbersome.

The Motorola Razr2 V9x adds welcome improvements to an already excellent phone.

Motorola RAZR2 V8


The Motorola RAZR has been one of the most popular mainstream cell phones in recent years. Motorola has now beefed up the fliptop to attract an even wider audience, particularly music aficionados. It still isn't going to blow away your favorite...

Excellent music sound and setup; impressive touchscreen front; easy to use

Aside from music other features are pretty standard; Expensive without rebates

The RAZR2 V8 is a solid phone for any music lover or fans of the original MOTORAZR.

Razr2 Review: Razr now betr than evr


Motorola's Razr2 was released earlier this fall without much of a bang. But it's still one of the slickest flip phones on the market. I'll be taking a look at the T-mobile version of the phone, and touching on its finer points.

Overall, I was impressed with the speed of the phone. It has the killer aesthetic that everyone loved in the original Razr. If you’re in need of a super compact phone, with basic functionality, you might want to pick up a new Motorola Razr2. I give it...

Motorola RAZR2 V8 review: New edge to RAZR


After three long years of waiting we face the RAZR V3 successor: the slim and refined Motorola RAZR2 V8. Sporting a full metal jacket with gradating hues of dark pearl gray, the phone is made to impress. With two high-quality displays with QVGA ...

Quality metal casing and appealing design ; Really thin, measuring 11.9 mm in thickness ; Large internal and external displays, touch-sensitive keys on the outer display ; CrystalTalk for excellent voice quality ; Talking Phone with SMS and Email...

No 3G support ; No memory card slot ; No brightness settings for the external display ; The handset is easy to slip off the hands ; Large size when opened

Motorola RAZR2 V8 has a truly graceful silhouette, but the 11.9 mm of thickness get to be appreciated even more considering the clamshell form factor. Clean shape and rounded edges make the slim handset look solid, yet elegant. It does manage to...

Motorola Razr2 V8 (T-Mobile)


Yes, it's late to the party, as it often tends to be, but T-Mobile finally has picked up the Motorola Razr2. Sprint, Verizon Wireless, Alltel, and AT&T have been offering the Razr revamp since the summer, but only today did T-Mobile make its membership...

The Motorola Razr2 V8 offers an attractive design and a useful feature set including stereo Bluetooth and world phone support. Also, its call, music, and photo performance are quite good

The Motorola Razr2 V8 doesn't fully utilize its external display or controls, and its menu structure is confusing. Also, it's the only Razr2 without support for 3G networks

The Motorola Razr2 V8 may be one of the prettiest Razr2s around, but it's not nearly as smart. Its saving grace is its good performance.

SlashGear Review: Motorola MOTORAZR2 V9m on Sprint


No handset in the RAZR range has managed to capture the same excitement as that which met the original V3, and Motorola has been accused of resting on their laurels and relying on past glories instead of true innovation. The MOTORAZR2, then, is part...

Overall, though, the MOTORAZR2 V9m did enough to rejuvenate our interest in the venerable V range, something that up until recently seemed an impossible task. Motorola have thankfully seen the light and realised that it’ll take more than interminable...

Motorola RAZR2


How do you follow up the second-best-selling cell phone of all time? If you're Motorola, (which cranked out 50 million RAZRs) you inundate the market with your

Large, touch-sensitive external screen with haptics feedback. Can broadcast video live to other phones. Handsome styling, with an amazing paint job. Much better battery life than the original: 6 hours, 20 minutes talk time vs. 3 hours for RAZR 1.0. Can...

MP3 player stuttered on playback in our tests and phone choked on USB file copies. Too expensive and too heavy

Motorola RAZR2 V8 (T-Mobile)


Tired of mediocre call quality on T-Mobile? You could have had a V8. No, not the tomato juice–based beverage—I'm talking about the Motorola RAZR2 V8, T-Mobile's highest-end feature phone with the carrier's best call quality by far. Sure, the huge gap...

Feels luxurious. Excellent call quality and reception. Good Web browser. 2GB built-in memory

Expensive for a T-Mobile handset. Third-party applications are crippled. Internet access issues ; Watch the Motorola RAZR2 V8 Video Review

The Motorola RAZR2 V8 is the apotheosis of the voice phone. It's as good as it gets for making calls on a GSM network, but the unit falls short as a pocket computer.
