Before you say that this is RRP , please bare in mind that this is a very good price for a phone with these features and we don't know what the official RRP will be.

Motorola RAZR i Overview
The Motorola RAZR i is the new edge-to-edge smartphone from Motorola. This impossibly compact Android smartphone also features a 2GHz Intel processor, making it further stand out from the crowd.

The RAZR i features the same 4.3-inch screen size as its predecessors, the RAZR and the RAZR MAXX. However, thanks to the new edge-to-edge technology engineered by Motorola, the RAZR i is a much smaller device to hold in your hand and pocket. Less bulk, but just as much screen.

It’s not only the RAZR name that the i makes use of, but also the rock-solid build quality that has becomes affiliated with the range. An aircraft-grade aluminium frame encloses the edge-to-edge display, which itself is made from scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass, while the KEVLAR coated back cover adds even further protection. There’s also a water-repellent nanocoating covering the RAZR i, all the way down to the internal electrical boards, so no need to worry if you get caught in the rain.

Thanks to the 2GHz Intel processor, the 8MP camera included with the RAZR i can load in less than a second; just hit the dedicated camera key whilst browsing your handset and you are good to go. If it’s an action shot that you’re capturing, the ability to take 10 shots in under a second will make sure you capture the best possible photo. High Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities, plus an illuminated sensor on the back, mean that even in low light conditions you’ll be able to take great quality snaps.

The RAZR i runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the works. This does of course mean that you have access to the full suite of Google apps, plus all the apps, games, books and movies in the Play Store. This goes hand in hand with the 2000mAh battery, which provides you with 20 hours of mixed usage, so no need to recharge halfway through the day. This is further enhanced by a feature called SMARTACTIONS, which helps to automate various tasks on the handset, reducing battery drain and making your handset more efficient.

In terms of connectivity, the RAZR i has the works – NFC, DLNA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G. Its edge-to-edge display means that media playback is a superb experience on the handset, but the connectivity options are there if you wish to share on other screens. A 3.5mm headphone jack is used to connect headphones and a microUSB port is included for power and data transfer.

single core 2ghz intel vs dual & quad arm um ?

intel atom?

programs that are not multi threaded should run really fast on this.

Looks nice, shame its not 4G as the 4G has already started.

where has it? wont be fully available for another 12 months, 4g is, at present useless in phones

not sure how apps designed for an arm cpu would run on x68 cpu. im confused.

Aren't enough comparison's out there but I'm hoping that you can run x86 programs on this?

The Orange San Diego uses a virtual environment from what I remember, hopefully this doesnt.

HSPA+ is more than enough speed for the next 2 years. And at the standard 14mb/s it is quicker than most of my friends in Londons home broadbands.

"Evolved HSPA provides data rates up to 84 Mbit/s in the downlink and 10.8 Mbit/s in the uplink"

that could be one reason benchmark scores could be low, they are running them in virtual mode.

quick sim & micro sd changing

Am I the only one that thinks this is far too expensive for what it is? It's still very early days for android on intel, with limitations on the apps you can use (though I know most popular ones are okay) - so shouldn't they be trying to get market share with a cracking price. For this money, I think I'd be looking at other handsets first.

Do you believe everything Intel says? They say Android doesn't work well on multi-core devices...but only because they don't have any! Any multi-core user will tell you that's nonsense. If you look around, you'll find some good white papers on why multi-core is better than a faster single core.

You mean Windows apps? You'll be disappointed...

Intel states that it uses hyper threading so the claim goes,might be true?

That means it's got hardware to make switching between tasks more efficient than just doing it in software. But that's not the same as doing two (or four) tasks at the same time and not needing to switch between them at all...

I'm sure the price will come down over time.

It feels great in the hand. I really like the form-factor and the processor FLIES. Played with one yesterday after the launch.

HOWEVER

It's a Pentile screen, which really bothers me. So for that reason, I'm out.

Let's just hope the water resistance and added strength counts, many Moto Defy owners have found their 'life proof' phones aren't necessarily that life proof.

(I'm a Moto Defy+ owner)

I am actually pretty excited by this phone. Its a sensible size (very similar to the iPhone 5), yet has a 4.3inch screen. Its extremely well made - none of this Kinder Egg plastic Samsung stuff. I'd rather an Arm CPU tbh, just in case it cases App compatibility and less custom ROM development, but from the reviews I've read the 2GHz Intel, with Hyper-threading is more than up to the job. It actually shows up in Android as dual core.

On top of all this - its going to be priced as a mid range phone, meaning it should get cheap quickly.

i saw one demo where it lagged/ stuttered like crazy and another demo where it was scrolling a webpage super smoothly.
The benchmarks reflect this..intels processor can deal with webpages with the best of them..but graphics will suck hard.

A pentile screen at 540p over 4.3inchs is not good...their last razr had this and the reviews said it sucks.

The price....cold because this is how much i expect to pick it up for from a highstreet store

You made me wet

I'd hardly call 16 cities a third of the country. For those people who live in them and never travel out of them it may be some use but not for most people - I just love my GPRS!!!

Oh that edge to edge screen is lovely! Wish my S3 had it.

Yeah, this is a first desirable Motorola since the starTAC!!

Not only that, but HSPA+ is still nowhere near its capacity, or coverage that it should be!

Before they roll out the new system, at least get the old system working fully!

4G will only be a big city center luxury and will be for a long time. And don't think for a second the networks will be able to handle the traffic.

When I have a good HSPA signal, pretty much anything I want to download take less than three seconds. I actually use it rather than my Wifi sometimes, its so quick. So I'm not running after 4G for now - just battery life, compactness, build quality and smoothness.

21mb is fast enough for any phone in my opinion.
2 years before LTE or true 4G becomes useful.

wait for the Nokia Lumia 920, much better than this and it will be slightly more

Seriously considering this as an upgrade to my Defy (and yes the screen on the Defy does break.Just replaced mine really easily!)
ANYWAY.....this has great reviews in the States where it has a Snapdragon processor, so it will be interesting to see how it fares with the Intel. As for 4g..well, we've only just got Freeview!!!

But let's get real.....this is a massive £200 less than the PiePhone 5 so obviously it isn't going to be in the same league as that or the S3, HTC One X ,but it's not supposed to be... it's a mid range phone for people who don't want to spend a fortune. It's got a big screen in a small package (Hooray!), it looks great, so I am def interested, but I think it may be worthwhile waiting to see what it costs on a contract. Voted hot anyway!

I bet this will have poor battery time... 2000mAh is not enough. And they 20Hrs for mixed use.

2000mAh not enough? that is loads for a phone the galaxy s2 has 1650, the only phone I know with much more is the razr maxx with 3300 and that is its main selling point and runs for 2x most other smartphones.

Saying that this phone is very unimpressive. I expect similar performance to a galaxy 2s or razr and you can get the razr for £250. Why get this with a probably not very well supported cpu.

15fps @ 10880p! WOOOWOWOWOWOWOWWWWWOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

That is not what hyperthreading does at all.
