Motorola Razor I Smartphone
Just about every phone is going to have people who don’t really love it as much as others do. This can be said about just about everything, and this really isn’t any different when we’re talking about mobiles. Motorola has been a company that has received a good amount of bad press over the years, though things have been turning around with all of their work with Google. Their Razor is one that has been the target of some critics out there, and there have been a couple of things namely that the critics have been talking about, and it’s something that we think is for good reason.

Namely, it’s the fact that it’s rather lacking in some efforts, and that’s a fair enough comparison, though that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t make up in others. After all, it’s a mid-range phone and most people are expecting for it to be a little deficient, though that’s most definitely to be expected by a lot of people in the know. Here, we’ll talk about a few of the things that people are generally talking about.

It’s Lacking Some Things

First and foremost, people are going to talk about the fact that it doesn’t have a high definition screen. We’ve all been spoiled as of late; virtually all great phones have them, and this one just doesn’t. What’s more is that this particular phone has a pretty large screen, so you’ll most definitely notice it here. The Razor also is one that doesn’t support 4G, which is a shame because all phones have that, too. 3G is still okay these days, but definitely isn’t a selling point, and has turned off more than a few people from buying it. But, those things are forgivable in some people’s eyes, but the fact that it doesn’t support apps is another.

Where’s the Compatibility?

This is probably one of the worst things about this phone. Android prides itself on having a boatload of apps, and it’s not a great thing for the Razor to stand out and say, “Hey, we can’t support this!” In fact, it’s definitely one of the reasons why this phone will never really see that many pockets, especially when you consider the wealth of Android-powered phones that are currently on the market, as well as those that are currently being developed. Sure, many of the apps will work, but when you’re buying an Android phone, you’re more or less expecting to use any app that you’re interested in downloading. The Razor can’t fit the bill here.

Outside of those few things, the critics really don’t harbor much ill will toward the Razor. It’s a pretty decent phone for the price, and it’s widely available. However, if you’re looking for a really sharp screen and all of the app capability that you can shake a stick at, you may want to look elsewhere, as you won’t find it in the Razor. The most troubling thing is that there are a plethora of other great Android phones on the market that are much better suited.
