Motorola’s flagship Android smartphone, the RAZR has got a price cut and is now selling at Rs. 29,990. Online retail store, Flipkart is currently selling it at that price and as of today, the product is available and can be delivered within 5 -7 business days. We did compare it with the Samsung Galaxy S II in one of our earlier articles, and they both went neck to neck in almost all the comparison tests, but the RAZR did come out as the eventual winner.

If you’ve forgotten, here is a quick look at the specifications of the Motorola RAZR:

  • Android 2.3.5, Gingerbread
  • 1.2GHz Dual Core Processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • Dimensions are 130.70mm x 68.90mm x 7.1mm
  • 127g weight
  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display with a resolution of 540 x 960
  • 8 Megapixel rear camera
  • 1.3 Megapixel front facing camera for video calling
  • 1080p HD video recording with image stabilization 
  • Bluetooth 2.0, HDMI, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • 16GB internal memory, 16GB microSD card pre-installed
  • 1780 mAh battery

However, in our in-depth smartphone camera test, the RAZR performed extremely poorly. It came nowhere close to phones that were priced both above and below its budget. For example, both the Sensation XE and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S performed much better in the camera department. True, it’s got an 8 megapixel camera, but megapixels haven’t really told the actual story ever. Besides that, the phone fared really well in our review, with an 8 point rating and even got an Editors’ choice award. 

In terms of design and build, the Kevlar fiber ensures that your phone will survive quite a few falls. Also, the chances of the phone getting Ice Cream Sandwich are pretty high. An early ICS ROM for Motorola RAZR has already been leaked, so you’re future proofed. What do you guys think about the Motorola RAZR at this price tag? Worthy enough for your hard earned money, or you’d rather play the waiting game and see what comes out of MWC later this month?
