As for other smartphones, Samsung’s Galaxy S II is cutting a 8.49mm profile, while Apple’s iPhone 4S has really let itself go at 9.3mm. Does it feel thinner? Palpably, although you’ll need to get over the chin that houses the RAZR’s 8MP camera (more on that later).</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/motorola-razr-back_0.jpg?1364401187" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_569.png?1364401187" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Motorola RAZR – build and feel </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>It ought to feel flimsy and while it’s true the RAZR doesn’t have the substance of, say, an HTC Sensation or iPhone 4S, it does stand up to the bend test. Touch it, knock it, twist it and squeeze it – there are few signs that Motorola’s new smartphone would lie down in a fight. It’s even coated (circuit board and all) in a water-repellent coating.

That’s why it’s a surprise (and a disappointment) that the RAZR will be arriving with Gingerbread 2.3.5, not Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). To compensate, Motorola has made its own UI tweaks designed to emulate some of ICS’s functionality. All too often that manifests itself in a jumpy interface that’s not really acceptable in late 2011. Hopefully the promised Android 4.0 update will fix all that.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/motorola-razr-camera_0.jpg?1364401187" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_0_468.png?1364401187" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> RAZR sharp screen </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Big, bright screens are all the rage (in case you hadn’t noticed).

But it’s a tougher proposition now – you can’t get away with just being skinny and having a pretty face. With its Kevlar weave, Gorilla Glass and water-repellent properties, the RAZR owes as much to the Defy as to its fashionable ancestor. Its endless accessories and docks hark back to the Atrix. But is the new RAZR able to cut out its own identity in the modern world?
