Motorola Droid Razr HD review: How phones should be built

JR Raphael | Oct. 23, 2012
Motorola's Droid Razr HD makes a lasting impression with its first-class build quality and outstanding battery life -- but the Android smartphone also has its fair share of flaws.

There's not much more to say about the Razr HD's software that I didn't already say in my coverage of the Razr M; the devices share the same exact software (including bloatware, which, courtesy of Verizon, there's no shortage of here). For a detailed analysis of Motorola's current Droid Razr software setup, including a visual guide to the UI, see the "Software" section of my Razr M review.

Bottom line

Motorola's Droid Razr HD is easily one of the best high-end phones on the market today. With its rugged build, outstanding battery life and close adhesion to Android 4.x design standards, the Razr HD presents an impressive overall package that stands out from the pack and earns a well-deserved spot among the Android elite.

Of course, nothing's perfect; the Droid Razr HD ships with last year's version of Android, it doesn't have the best camera or display, and its performance is a hair short of where it should be. But the phone has enough good things going for it that it's easy to forgive those faults and enjoy the excellent experience it provides.
